So I was planning on this post being the cutoff for entry into my 200th Post Contest. "What contest?" you ask. Why it's the contest where I'm giving away pint glasses and a BevMo gift card to fill said glasses. It's funny because I've had a ton of page views on my 200th post, but only a handful of people are actually entering to win.
I know what you're thinking, "I'm not going to win anyways, so what's the point of signing up?"
That, my friends, is a defeatist attitude. Michael Jordan would tell you that you don't make 100% of the shots you don't take. And if everyone thought there was no point in entering, there would never be any winners in this world. Of course there also would probably be no contests to win because no one would enter them. Someone has to win. Just ask Janelle over at Renegade Mothering who won my 100th Post Giveaway and some delicious cupcakes as a result. You could literally be the next Janelle (except probably not as cool, but still). In fact some might say that winning BevMo swag is way cooler than Icing on the Cupcake swag. I'm not here to rate the two, but I'll just say that the money you save by winning the BevMo card could be put toward purchasing cupcakes. And there are few things more awesome than eating cupcakes after drinking free hooch.
This has been a very long-winded way to say that I'll extend my entry period through Thursday. I'll still be announcing the winner in this very space on the 10th. It could be you! And with how few people have entered, the likelihood is very high that it will be you.
On to the Twitter Machine. Be warned I will be discussing Mad Men and there will be spoilers.
