5th day of christmas giveaway #1!


How about some toys for the kids today? I promised to double up on the giveaways today so here we go!

I had never heard of Jishaku, and am totally intrigued by it, to say the least. It’s “a portable strategy game like chess or checkers that can be played anywhere – the kitchen or the beach. But unlike chess, there is an element of surprise when the magnets jump out of position, without warning. Surprise, then laughs, follow as two or more players try to beat force fields with strategic thinking plus careful and precise handling of the game’s magnetic stones.”

How cool does Jishaku sound? I’m thinking the possibilities on road trips alone would make this game totally worthwhile. Get commenting…

new giveaway delay.

Okay, so I absolutely had to do some last minute shopping for Christmas, there was a huge storm, and well, you get the idea. I’m a slacker and didn’t get the new giveaways up today. I promise to double up on giveaway postings tomorrow but you won’t be disappointed! Come back tomorrow and you’ll be pleasantly surprised with some more giveaway love….

Goodnight! And stay warm out there.

Giveaway winners….

Thank you to everyone who entered for this great giveaway. It was great that we were able to add a second microwave to this giveaway and special thanks to our sponsors for helping us get a second microwave and Bertolli Pasta packets.

Congratulations to ritscher and tami.

ritscher said…

I *need* a microwave. The one I have now is about third-hand and is starting to smell funny when you use it. No matter how much I clean it (and I do) it doesn’t make the odor of some long-forgotten treat-gone-wrong emanate from it. I didn’t even get to eat said treat-gone-wrong, so it’s just a reminder of food past.

tami said…

Please get a hold of us a quickly as you can so we can get these items out to you. Thanks again to everyone who signed up.

awesome t shirts for women.


Have you ever seen Snorg Tees? I’ve kind of had a huge crush on them for, well, it’s been a while. I would love nothing more than a closet full of these tees; they’re so tongue in cheek, witty, and flat-out snarky. But I can’t choose, I want all of them. I mean, do I go with this:
Big Deal Tee
$16.95
{via Snorg Tees}.


Or do I profess my longtime love for John Stewart and go with this one?

Viva La Stewart!
Or, do I go with the Awesome Meter? I mean really, how is a girl to choose? And not just a girl, they have plenty of great tees and sweatshirts for guys too.

Awesome Meter.


Well, one of you is going to have to make a choice, because I’m giving away a tee from Snorg Tees!

Giveaway Guidelines:

  1. To enter the Snorg Tees Giveaway leave a comment on this post telling me which tee is your favorite. Maybe it will help me make a choice on which one I like best.
