Great books. Great authors. Great giveaways.
Yanno, if a girl wasn't a regular blog reader of the Manickiest Mom in Blogdom that contest might raise an eyebrow. Me? A weiner winner? Oscar Mayer??? LOL!
Stay patient??? We're moms of little ones... we're totally sapped of patience. :)Just kidding!! We'll wait... with bated breath... and keep checking our bloglines every few minutes... obsessively...
Believe me, I am the most IMPATIENT of them all, AND I ALREADY KNOW WHO WON!!!I am just sooo annoyed that it takes THIS LONG to get youtube videos up and running! UGH!!!!
As long as you said we are free to self promote here, may I self promote why I should win this contest? (Commence sweet-sad violin music now.) Proof #1: I, too, have the flu. That, right there, should earn me sympathy points. I mean, no one needs to win a contest like someone riddled with bacteria, you know what I mean?Proof #2: I've never read a Jennifer Weiner book. If I DID win and enjoyed her book (and why wouldn't I enjoy her book? Manic Mommy enjoys Weiner's books, so it stands to reason that I will fall madly in love with Weiner, too. --Oooh, I just reread the last part of the previous sentence, and it can sound a little risque' if read with a certain lilt in one's voice. Heh, heh, heh. --Look, I have the flu. I am feverish. Allow me a little stupid humor. It's the virus talking.), I would certainly promote her books to all of my friends, relatives, coworkers, students, etc. In this way, my winning the book would sort of be a way of "paying it forward." Viva random acts of kindness!#3: I've never won anything, and I'm getting a little bitter about it. (Violin music swells to crescendo.) I haven't even won at BINGO. In fact, I have started to resent BINGO and all BINGO players for this very reason. Resentment and bitterness contributes to wrinkles. Can't. Have. That. By winning this book, you are preserving my youth. MY VERY YOUTH.#4: My husband likes the covers of Weiner's books. He thinks they look sexy. If I were to win one of these books and read it while reclining amongst my many, many pillows before retiring for the night, then there is the potential for boom chicka wah wah. (music briefly changes to sexy electric guitar chords, then resumes the sweet-sad strains of the violin) Is it a coincidence that one of the titles is _Good in Bed_? I don't think so. #5: The covers of Weiner's books frequently feature shoes (one of my not-so-secret guilty pleasures) and every time I look at the cover I will be tempted to buy MORE shoes and get MORE pedicures to set off said shoes, yadda, yadda, yadda. If I only give in to this temptation TEN PERCENT of the time, I will STILL be out there spending money, which will stimulate the economy. I may single-handedly turn around the housing market because of this win. Think of all the home sellers, real estate agents, etc. who will profit from this butterfly effect! #6: I will stop begging to win the book. This should bring joy to many, many of your readers! #7: Did I mention my heinous Death Flu?? Thank you for the opportunity to sway some novel-winning consideration my way...unless you were planning to throw the names in a hat and pull a random name, BINGO-fashion, in which case I will probably be once again blighted by the cruel BINGO-gods! Oh no, I feel another wrinkle coming on....Trish :)aka: pacifiersandprada.blogspot.com(Yes, sadly that IS how much I love shoes!)
Yes, clearly, you are riddled with the flu.I do believe the videos are uploaded and I think I will be making the announcment soon. Feel better Trish!
I just tried to view the video and it said it was no longer available!!!What happened??
NOW The whole post doesn't even exist because for some reason the youtube video did die so I'm trying to fix it so you can see who the winners are. So Trish, you are not really delirious from the flu. The post was there, but now it's not. Back up soon, I hope!
it was there...and now its not...and now it's bed time for us flu ridden people. Hope it's up by the morning :DAre you feeling any better now?
Barely. Lips less chapped. Mucinex has worked it's way through my system to the point where I have saliva again. But now I am drooling. Is this a good thing? Unsure....In the meantime, however, I have gone to Jen Weiner's site based on Stephanie's recommendation and...I think I have my very first GIRL-CRUSH. I am smitten. Just...smitten. Must go take hot shower and drink more tea.... Sammy, if you have flu, too, I offer up a prayer to you before falling completely unconscious. Now must tell husband to man laptop and holler when winners are posted.... Off to take up residence in hot bath.
It better not be me because I already once twice and you don't want to get accused of rigging your own contest!
i need to enter one of these contests....
March, you'll be the first to be alerted when I hold a HSM contest!
