Actually, she's already had two giveaways, because she's not a total cheap-ass like I am, but whatever. And, because, somehow, the whole world has yet to discover how lovely and charming she is, and she's new to the blog-o-sphere, she only had three followers at the time of her first giveaway, and two of those followers entered the contest. I was one of the two.
And THAT my friends, is the only way I am ever going to be able to win ANYTHING.
No, actually, that is not true. Even with only two people entering a contest, I am quite certain that I still would have lost. But, Kelly's husband said that because there were just two of us, we both should win, so,
Who doesn't like getting packages in the mail?!? I LOVE packages!!! Make jokes about love of PACKAGES on your own time.
|the package says "urgent shipment", hur hur hur...|
So, finally, my package arrived! EXCITEMENT!
Damn STRAIGHT, "CONGRATULATIONS!"
HOORAY FOR PACKAGES! OH LOOKEE! TWO PACKAGES! The second box came straight from Melton Mowbray England, home of the famous pork pie. The Man loves The Pork Pie better than he loves me, perhaps. My brother is currently obsessed with making pies: meat pies, fruit pies, pot pies, Cornish pasties, and because he is the freak that he is, he even found this online tutorial to make a real Melton Mowbray pork pie for The Man's birthday. But, he didn't have a "pie dolly" to make one, which is a hunk of wood that you form the crust around and...
oh shit, that's boring. In the box is a wooden pie dolly from England. Nuff said.
But here's what I got!
- a fab little tube of Sephora perfecting eye primer, and a little kit of Sephora lip glosses in various sparkly, lick-me colours,
- a tube of amazing "Soap And Glory" hand-lotion, that turns dish-pan hands into SOFT dish-pan hands!
- some super-dark chocolate triangles and pink Himalayan salt from Trader Joe's
and some sketch pads and pencil crayons for the kids.
And do you know what? We do not have this mythical, magical store known as TRADER JOE'S here, so that is super duper cool.
Thank you Kelly, Christmas came early!
There! Wasn't that nice?!? YES! IT WAS RIDICULOUSLY NICE!
Thus, in the spirit of GIVING, I am going to give a gift to you people. It is a crappy, grainy, amateurish video of me singing the karaoke version of one of my favourite Christmas songs.
You must ignore my mugging and crowing and pay attention instead to the general background CHAOS that I live with on a daily basis. Yes, it is a small sampling of my life here in ANGST LAND. You will be relieved to know that The Man is having a TICKLE fest with the children, and is not pulling legs off, as one might imagine. And yes, that is my son screeching at me to "STOP SINGING" at one point.
Who says I never give you anything?!? MWAH!
Oh yeah...I suppose I should say that I do not own the rights to this song, and blah blah, I don't intend to use it for money making purposes, or re-distribution, or anything like that, and as far as I know, it's still legal to sing a song you like in this country.
There. All better?
Happy caroling my friends!!
**Update: Sorry everyone, but you won't be able to find Kelly's blog. Due to personal reasons, Kelly had to delete it. So, I removed the link. Sniff!
