Tidings of Comfort, Victory, and GIVEAWAYS!!!!!
1. My Cranberry pie finally won! After a tragic finish at an ugly sweater party, and being overshadowed by the chocolate pecan pie at Thanksgiving, my Nantucket Cranberry Pie (which I took to the next level with a chocolate cream cheese icing) got first place at the office holiday party Top Chef competition. I am happy.
2. I also coincidentally won a caption contest on my favorite horse blog, and for my witty mockery was awarded a gift certificate for horse tack! As I currently don't have a horse of my own, I'm giving it to Camp K. I hope my mother and her 3 horses, 2 mules and 2 donkeys forgive me. But I'm still claiming victory on that one, and relishing in being mentioned on my favorite blog in the same post as my international heroes.
3. GIVEAWAY!!!! I was inspired by a number of blogs giving away x-boxes, TVs, designer handbags, and gift cards to the moon, but I decided that you don't actually need to be rich to share the love. Therefore, I am announcing the very first Lorraine in Spain BirthdayChristmasNewYear giveaway!!!! And entering is EASY! All you have to do is leave a semi amusing or extremely funny comment on this blog post, and then I will choose a winner using a randomizer found on these here internets.
So, what are you going to win????
a) one stoneware ceramic creation glazed and fired, created by yours truly.
b) one splendid thing I find on Etsy.
c) one silly ghost written letter from the President of my University thanking you for any fake donation of your choice (as long as it is in good taste. make good choices) on University letterhead.
d) a picture of Dan doing something ridiculous.
I KNOW YOU WANT TO WIN THIS. If you've never commented before, don't be afraid! We're all friends here, and I will not hold your secret stalking against you. So go for it kiddies, and merry holidays! Please comment before Christmas to be eligible!
