Everyone Loves Free Crap

Guess what today is. Today is October 21st. What, you say? That's not anything special? I beg to differ. It is exactly one month until the premiere of Twilight. In one month I will be anxiously waiting for my ticket with iPhone in hand, shielding myself from butter gone berserk. No, wait, that's not right...

Anyway, in one month I will be watching my favorite love story ever come to life on the big screen, something I'm a tad excited about. You may think this is a ridiculous excuse for a giveaway, and I won't argue with you. It is. But I wanted to have a giveaway and lo and behold, it fell on today. So Happy One Month Til Twilight Movie Day to ya.

So here's how this giveaway works. Just leave a comment on my blog before midnight on Friday the 24th. BUT--to spice things up a bit, because I like things spicy (well, not food), leave your comment anonymously, but give yourself either a name or a clue as to who you are. I will have so much fun guessing who is who. You can say something about yourself, or a memory with me, anything you can think of to give me a hint. Then I will attempt using random.org for the first time to draw one of your names. (It doesn't matter if I guess you or not, if your number is chosen, you win.)

What will you win? Ten--count 'em, ten--custom-made, handmade cards. You can choose ten of the same, ten different, some thank you, some birthday, whatever you want. Heck, if you want ten National Foot Day cards, that's what you'll get.

So get creative and don't forget--don't use your real name when you comment!!

Ahh, the long awaited 21st of November. If I win I promise to shield the butter from your beautiful face. I love free stuff, especially stuff from you.

With love, Adnerb

Shoot. I didn't want to be the first to comment because random.org never picks the number 1! Oh well. I'll still enter and my hint is this...why pay $4 when you can pay $52?

Too easy, I know. I'll take my Thank-You cards in Twilight's color scheme, thank you very much!

Horray for Twilight. Here's my hint:
You wrote to Bill before you met him on my computer while I slept.

Maybe that was too easy.

I'm sure you will be wondering who I am for ages! One of my fondest memories is spending the night at your house and playing in the basement. (Hmm I can't remember what grade we were in) Anyhow, I loved your laugh it was Way better than mine and I spent the whole night trying to make my laugh sound just like yours. I never did by the way. I think it may have been the only time I stayed over... I wouldn't have invited an hysterical (on purpose no less) friend back either so no hard feelings ;)

Hmmmm.... a comment or a memory? Maybe the time I sat by MYSELF at Shari's cuz I'm too retarded to look around the restaurant for you. That was awesome.

I'm an idiot because I didn't remember to click "anonymous" with that last one. I'll try again later...you know, to keep up the anonymity.

Wow, I've never been anonymous before. I have 4 kids and I teach piano and clarinet lessons. And 2 1/2 years ago, you were holding my baby while we were playing games, and you refered to his onesie as a very "yummy" color of blue. Which I agree, by the way. I'm sure you totally remember that, and I'm not 100% sure why I remember that. Maybe because 2 1/2 years later, my new baby gets to wear it...

DANG! I DO love free stuff! I like to hear all about peoples excitement for goooood movies! Hurrah! Okay, here is my memory:

"Ohhhhhh I took a lick off my peppermint stick (bounce bounce) and I thought it tasted yummy (bounce bounce) oh it used to be on my Christmas tree (bounce bounce) but now it's yummy in my tummy (bounce bounce) YUM! YUM!

HEE HEE HEE Good times!

Midnight walks in the snow (why can't the world still be that safe?)and running down the street in our swimsuits and towel capes, cackling like witches. Maybe you don't remember that.

It's the naked truth that my husband gave you a nickname when you were younger.

Everytime we stepped into your white Escort, Amy Grant would serenade us from the radio. Today I think of it as "our" song.

Haven't known you long enough to have any "good ole times" stories, but I can say that I really admire you and thing you are very "cool" I knew I wanted to be your friend before I really knew you and and so glad that we are friends now. (I know it sounds cheesy, but when else can you be cheesy and nice and have no one know it's you!)

coming to your house on a greyhound and having the feeling of 102 degrees hit me like a brick wall as i stepped off the urine soaked bus to jump in your moms BMW - how cool! i always slept in your room (thanks!) and dreampt that your mom would take me in for good 'cause she was the closest thing to my mom i knew.

The time I saw you and your hubby out ring shopping back in 2000. It was the first day you two had ever seen each other. Or playing basketball with about 20of us in front of your house about 17 years ago.

So what is this Twilight business anyway? Is it going to be better than HSM 3? I doubt it.

I like free stuff.

I remember sitting on your couch with my fiancee meeting you for the first time. You were chatting I was laughing my guts out!

You are my resident Twilight expert and...you owe me a movie :)

Haven't known you as long as some of the rest,
But our chats are always among the best.
Movie watching keeps us both super happy,
though I'm a crier and you're just not that sappy.
Email is our preferred choice of communication,
an endless back-and-forth (who's next?) conversation.
I'd take credit for your total Twilight obsession,
but apparently I rank low on your book recommendations.
So silly and fun and real and true,
Thanks for the friendship...is that enough clues?

We were in a competition together and we both wanted to win. You and I were the fiercest competetors by far. I didn't win.

I just left you this clue. I couldn't sleep once I finally figured out what to write. So that's why I'm awake writing it now! Good Luck.

Happy One Month till Twilight! I can't believe it's only a month away. Maybe I will see you again at midnight for the Twilight movie, like the night Breaking Dawn was released! Only this time I'm leaving my makeup and dress behind...

When Lishy was at the Water Park,
she went on all the rides.
She swam in all the swimming pools
and slid down all the slides.
She ran around and shouted out,
“This place is really cool!”
But Lishy turned red when someone said,
“Your suit is in the pool!”
