Presents are the best way to show someone how much you care. It is like this tangible thing that you can point to and say “Hey man, I love you this many dollars-worth”.

I’m thoroughly enjoying reading all of your “random facts.”
I’m also suffering from extreme guilt as I’m reading them because I know I can give the book to only one person.
And that just sucks.
That said, here’s how it’s going to go down. I’ve asked the authors, Kathy and Joelle, to read through the comments and each pick 5. I’m going to pick 5 as well. Then, I’m going to put those 15 names into a hat and draw a name.
I’ll leave the comments open until Monday morning and The Winner will be announced sometime on Tuesday.
This has been so much fun for me that I’m thinking of doing another giveaway very soon. And this one will be awesome, for it will be a basket of “Y’s Favorite Things.” Kind of like Oprah’s, except not really anything like it at all. First of all, Oprah can’t fit her things in a basket, because her favorite things are plasma tv’s and digital cameras. MY favorite things most certainly can (and will!) fit in a basket because my favorite things consist of things such as “fabric softener” and “fritos”.
I bet you can’t wait for that.

    But you’re gonna pick me, right? LOL.
    Totally kidding. But in the next drawing, you’ll include bean dip and Sangria, right? That sounds like a dream basket.

    Actually, I totally ask my husband how many dollars he loves me. It’s a running joke – one time I asked him, just for the hell of it, and he said, “Twelve dollars.” Now here I am, thinking that he’s a cheap bastard and why would I EVER want to marry such a jerk, and he goes and says, “Because that’s more than I have in my pocket.” Luckily, it was just cute enough to save him from Total Annihilation, PMS-style.

    You so need to chrage them people at Downey cause I bought the vanilla lavender softner…because of you….seriously! I LOVE it!!

    Ok. So. If I don’t win the book…
    Would you consider signing another can of bean dip and sending it to me for pain and suffering caused by be a loser?
    I can’t see bean dip anywhere now without thinking of you. 😉

    I love that idea! If I did a basket of Helen’s favourite things it would probably be filled with chocolate, English chocolate, hmmmmmm. Also, fish and chips but that would stink and melt the chocolate.

    awww man, wow, i guess it really would suck to “play favorites” and literally pick the one winner. i bet you’ll draw that name out of the hat and say…OYYY NEVERMIND, *insert name here* really deserves it! hehehe!!
    at any rate, i’ll definitely be in the running for the fritos. esp if they’re chili-cheese — i mean, that’s the only kind you can eat on (yes ON) a bologna-n-mustard wonderbread sammich, right??
    i dont think i’d wanna reimburse ya for the shipping on a plasma tv anyhoo. hehe! 😉

    hehe, you know us internetsies is some picky folks. you could probably have a contest for your dirty laundry or used toilet cleaning brush and people would want to win!
    I hold you fully responsible for the container of bean dip that SUICIDALLY LEAPED into my shopping cart at the Dollar Store on Saturday. And also for the bag of fritos and large Pepsi I was forced to wash it down with.
    can you truly bear the weight? oh, no, actually, THAT WOULD BE MY THIGHS. now with more rubbing together! and no more wearing corduroy pants, lest small fires be carelessly ignited.

    So seeing the favorite basket has Fritos and Fabric Softener, it will be an Effing Basket?
    Pick me Pick me for the Effing Basket for f’s sake. I have no idea what Fritos are, never used Fabric Softener but if you think it is good then I NEED it!
    Oh and bean dip. Cause I am a renter ya know!

    Did I miss the cutoff? Well, here’s my random fact anyway. Take if for what it’s worth.
    I would love to win your book give-away. I just re-took up blogging and need all the advice I can get.
    A random fact about me: I seriously do not know how to burp, or at least not normally even though there is nothing normal about burping. When I attempt to burp it comes out sounding like a frog croaking. I wish I could record it and add a sound clip for you, but that would involve some type of technology that I don’t know how to work. See I really do need that book!
