I know your first thought must be “holy shit, she finished that dissertation fast!”
Well, your first thought is totally effing wrong. How’s that feel, hmmm?
No, the reason I’m resurfacing from my pit of despair is to bestow a lovely gift upon one of you sad sacks. The good people at CSN Stores (purveyors of everything from ceiling lights to cookware to cat toys) contacted me (last one in the blogosphere, I think—it’s like high school gym class all over again...) and have offered a $65 gift certificate to one of my readers to use at one of their fine 200+ online shops. And since I’ve been bleeding readers like a hemophiliac over here (heartless deserters!), your chances of winning are pretty freaking good.
To enter this wondrous contest, simply leave a comment on this post detailing your undying love for me and how much my absence has and will continue to cause you severe mental anguish. Or, you know, say hi and maybe tell me what you’d buy if you won. The deadline for contest entry is Wednesday, September 8th at 5 pm EST. There’s only one entry per person (because I’m mean and I said so) and you have to be resident in the US or Canada, which should be fine since I think I only have about three non-North American readers anyway. I’ll have the random number generator select the winner and I'll post the good news for one/piss-poor news for the rest of you on the 9th.
Of course, if you’re the lucky winner, you’re totally going to want to purchase me a little something-something with your loot. I’d like a new set of hand weights, a spin bike and a vibration plate because (a) it vibrates (heh), (b) it looks like a stationary Segway and (c) it’ll help me piss off my neighbors to no end. God knows I’ve been lacking in horrific living condition stories lately. Stupid nice neighbors.
Ok, back to work I go. *sob*
Have a great Labor Day weekend, everyone.
