TIWT-Her

Don't Twitter.  TIWT-Her.

Sass

TIWT is obviously "Things I Want Thursday" host by Sass over at THELIFEOFSASS.COM.  Last week she debuted a new icon to go with it.  A true work of art, if I must say so myself.  (In case you didn't catch it, I made it.)  And a few weeks back, Sass noted that no one had yet ponied up with the goods.  And last week, another blogger, Sassy Britches, noted she was probably the only one who was playing along.

Well, I plan on taking out two birds with one well aimed stone this Thursday.

Here's the deal:

  1. Next Thursday, 10/15, create a post with the TIWT button. Sass-Button-NEW-TIWT-5
  2. Comment on Sass's post and leave a link to your post.
  3. Over the weekend of the 17-18, I will select one (1) person who decided to TIWT-Her, and both they and Sass will win a special grand prize, chosen just for them.
  4. The winner will be announced on Monday, October 19.

Here's are the catches:

  1. There have to be at least 5 entrants.  If there are 4 or less (not counting Sass), no one wins.  And that will make Sass cry.
  2. You have to be willing to provide a mailing address of some kind.  The winner will be receiving a physical prize (most likely a US $ denominated gift card of some kind), so I have got to know where to send it.
  3. The cards won't be worth THAT much, so don't go all Texas Cheerleader Mother and snuff the competition.
  4. The winner will be chosen by a random draw.  While no one will be here to supervise me, trust me.  All entrants will get a number, and I will use RANDOM.ORG to pick the winner.  (ie – If Cora wins, no bitching.)

So there it is.  Sass's future happiness depends upon you.  You don't want to let her down, do you?

So get TIWTing.

What if all I want is you? What will you send me?

:-)

Cora said...

Oh! And I'm loving that random.org plan. That'll help cut down the odds on finding an irate pitchfork-wielding, flaming torch-brandishing mob following you to work one day.

Although if you keep on farting in elevators....

Sass said...

Rock on, Scope.

Rock.

On.

I'll be humiliated if no one does it.

I really may cry.

And I'll still be crying on the 23rd.

I'm just sayin'.

Scope said...

Cora - If I fart in elevators, then the last place that mob would want to be is behind me with an open flame.

Sass - I'll see if I can make you cry/smile at the same time on the 23rd. :-)

I don't think there's enough room on my blog for all the things I want.

Scope said...

Well BeckEye, just hit me with the short list, and maybe I'll be helping you out.

I'm trying to work out whether 'next Thursday' means this Thursday or next Thursday. I'm going to assume next.

Wtf I'm in a loop. I'm trying to work out whether...

Scope said...

Mo, I was concerned about writing that, too. So I stuck the date in there, "10/15" to try clarify. I had originally written "October 15" to try to be clear to people who may not use American date conventions, but that pushed the last word over onto a new line, and there was too much trapped white space above the picture.

Plus, I wrote this post on Friday, so "this Thursday" would have been "next Thursday" last Friday.

Right?

mike said...

That sounds like a lot of work. You should have a disclaimer, like "no TWIT necessary to win prize." Unless it's a date with Sass. Then I'm on board.

Ellie said...

I'm too lazy... love the idea though!

J.J. in L.A. said...

I'm willing...but I might need a Wednesday reminder.

Nikki said...

Oh man! I could meet you AND Cora!! I will try to be able to do that. That would be awesome fun. Even better than peanut butter covered old people. I will def let you know what's going on!

Sassy Britches said...

Well, heck, kids; you know I'm in. That was a no-brainer!

(Psst...thanks for the shout-out!)

A Mom on Spin said...

Okay. . .I'm in. . .

If I remember to forget myself for once and think of Sass. . . oh, but then I get to tell her what I want. . .and hopefully win some cool stuff. . .just for me. . .

Yeah, I'm in. . .

Leah Rubin said...

Me? Let Sass down? I'd rather get beaten up in the parking lot, and I guess that could be arranged... Hm...

No-- I still have some survival instincts!

C-ya Thursday!

Callista said...

hmmm.... so I have to come up with a list by tomorrow?!? Yikes!

Possum said...

Maybe I should have added to my list the fact that I want to learn how to create all the right links given that I'm such a newbie at all of this :)
