Some Blog-housecleaning stuff regarding the contest: The final post of contestants will go up on Sunday and we've got the most entrants EVER this week! BUT, if you are feeling the pull to donate, (especially with the recent news of killings at my alma mater, NIU, perhaps you might find it in your heart to donate) YOU have until Sunday to send me a photo of you donating and your information to be included in the contest!
Here's another thing I'd like you to weigh in on: HOW should the winner be chosen? It's got to be random. NOT A POPULARITY contest. BUT, who should choose the winner? I can't. Should I let a random blog lurker do it? I've got some ideas, but it will take some time to figure out. Should I assign a random number and just draw one? Should we divvy up the cash prize and award TWO or THREE prizes or just give away ONE prize?
It's your contest, to those of you who donated, please consider commenting on this subject! I need to know what you think!
AND NOW, I PROUDLY BRING YOU MY FUNNY VALENTINE:
So, apparently, Mr. Manic "flows like a teenager!"
That's what my good friend Tammy over at Heartland Blood Center said last night when he and I went for our Valentine's Date! He flows like a teenager stings like a bee! My new motto for him! Ha!
His flowage was so good that Tammy was able to separate his white blood cells from the red blood cells to use his blood specifically for cancer patients! YAY Mr. Manic!
Here are some pictures, and then a little bit of Manic Poetry.
Here's Mr. Manic with adorable gals Jaime and Tammy! Tammy's the one who wooed me back in January!
Mr. Manic, looking all serious.
I snagged this t-shirt for THE WINNER OF THE CONTEST AS WELL! VERY COOL HUH?
NICE FLOWAGE MR. MANIC!
All I Wanted for Valentine's Day
I didn't want chocolate, a backrub, or wine,
I didn't want flowers or jewelry so fine.
A pint of his blood was all that I'd need.
He did not even have to take me to feed.
The gift from this husband to his needy wife
Was quite plain simply the generous gift of life.
Best Valentine Present EVER!
