Three Things For Sunday:

1. If you won a prize from the Manic Mommy Blog for Blood Virtual Blood Drive then your prize was mailed out on Saturday.

Also, for those of you who won books (Sleeping with Ward Cleaver, Unpredictable, or The Opposite of Love) for the contests I've held recently, those also went out on Saturday.

If you gave blood, THANK YOU! It's probably time to give again, so please do so! And if you didn't give blood, WHY NOT?! Go do it. Save a few lives!

And if you didn't win the books, go buy 'em -- they're all written by AMAZING AUTHORS! You'll LOVE these books!

Anyway, it cost me SIXTY DOLLARS in postage alone to mail all this stuff out! That's how freaking much I love you all! And that's how much I believed in the blood drive and in these authors! So thanks for your participation!!!

2. Something else I believe in: My BBFF Swishy! It's her birthday on Sunday! Go over to her blog and tell her Happy Birthday. She is my Best Blogger Friend Forever and we know each other in real life too and I love her to death and if you've read her blog, then you love her to death too. Go tell her Happy Birthday today, March 9! She just simply rocks and is the most kindest grandest person in the world and if it weren't for this crazy internet thing, and our love for writing and for Jennifer Weiner books, we would not have the friendship we have today, and I'm so thankful for her and I love her! So happy, happy birthday to my friend Swishy!

3. This is my newest most favorite song in the entire world. I want to fall asleep with these words streaming through my head:

I see your BabyZone stuff is going swimmingly tonight... ;)

That song does rock. I have it playing again in the background as I type. Who is singing? I couldn't figure out how to get the volume up while the announcer guy was talking and missed it and now I'm too lazy to try again. Yep, just call me a big ol' techno lose!

Melissa said...

Wow, $60 you are dedicated!!

Swishy said...

You are the best, best, best BBFF in the entire world!! Even your mom came over to say happy birthday! FUN! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Shoot, girl! I'd have been happy to send those books directly to them! Probably would have actually arrived there in, um, oh, maybe 2 months time LOL

Robin said...

Manic, I love you too!!!

(Even if I never win any of your contest, and you won't loan me your stalker.)

Manic Mom said...

Aw, Robin, thank you, and not to worry, ANOTHER FREAKING CONTEST is coming up, probably later this week or early next week, so you'll have ANOTHER chance to win something!

And Thank you Manic for the blood drive, aand now this reminder. I am also headed back to the hospital next Monday the 17th. I am having a really good day, and am going to update my blog and put a permanent blood donation link on it while I can.

Also wanted you to know I got mail from the hospital staff, top dogs, from my participation, the post I prepared for your referral from your blood drive site. Not only was the blood donation reminder boosted, but it helped to spread the rare Myasthenia Gravis I am battling.

I will work with you on blood donation in any way I can, as it really helped me have a good treatment session. This one coming up? We'll see. haha In fact, I will join you in any way I can with any promotion/contests. Your spirit, and those of the girls (to me, haha ;) here are really good for my coping with the disease.

Therefore, thank you to all of you GIRLS here. I go to your sites to visit. Go give that blood for whomever it helps down to the line. My daughter is your age, but cannot give; I identify with you all, and enjoy your banter back and forth. You GO girls!!

Love to all you!!

Manic, I am sorry I am so mouthy, and talk too much. It is just that you (and the 'girls') have made such a big difference in my life. Thank you.

Ragdoll! You are not mouthy at all! I think no one is commenting because this is an older post and no one is reading over here any longer! Also, while I do think those who gave blood for the contest will definitely continue to do so, most unfortunately are not thinking about it that much!

I hope you are doing well and feeling well, and please, stop by ANY TIME!!! : )
