Thoughtful Blogger

...........has been cancelled. Instead today I bring you the long awaited continuation of the Happy Birthday to Me post.

Way back on October 6th I wrote a blurb about...oh wait, I'll just cut and paste.

"P.S. A shameless's birthday week here on The Avenue. Mine being Wednesday the 8th and Glitter Gurl's on Wednesday the 15th. Hey if I don't tell ya, who will? Anywhoo, in honor of the birthdays and because I am THE QUEEN attention seeker, I am sponsoring a give away. On my birthday post Wednesday if I reach 100 comments I will pull out the old random number generator and send the winner some honest to goodness scratch off lottery tickets. Open only to US residents over the age of 18 and whatever other disclaimers I need to add to that. They have to be real comments, one letter comments and duplicates won't count as more than one entry. Hey you gotta work for it here on The Avenue.

So go now and come back Wednesday with your comments, you might want to practice and leave some love now. Leave a blurb on your blog and get your friends to come back and wish me a Happy Birthday!"

Then on my birthday I got 63 comments and I posted this:

"I know I said one hundred comments and originals ones at that, but hey, my blog, my contest, my rules. I had 63 comments wishing me a Happy Birthday yesterday. Woohoo!

So this morning, I got up, showered, got dressed, had my coffee and plugged in the Random Integer Generator and this is what happened.

Here are your random numbers:58

You are surrounded with comment love!

and if I WASN'T USING the random generator, which I WAS, but if I wasn't, that is probably the comment I would have picked! Because honestly, I felt the Bloggy love with every comment that was posted for me.

Thank you all very much!

Jenni, your prize will be winging it's way to you as soon as you email me your shipping info."

Well as luck would have it Jenni provided me with her address, even after I confirmed that yes indeed I was a psycho stalker AND axe murderer, and I was forced to max out my credit card to make good on my promise of a prize. Jenni was kind enough to blog about her prize package here. Her post is comical and the reader's comments even more so.

Jenni I'm so glad you enjoyed my little care package, and seriously, I really never thought about your Buick sized butt before. But after today with another butt related post by you, I can't help but wonder, just how much elastic did you need to get all the way around your fenders?

P.S. Instead of 5 Thoughful Bloggers, today and today only, RIG and I will pick 5 thoughtful commentators and each of you will receive your very own butt chamois.

P.S.S. Thanks to A Mom in Red High Heels for this dealie.

On October 25 and 26, Old Navy is hosting a Halloween party in every store.
  • The first 100 customers on both days receive a trick-or-treat bag and a game piece offering either 20, 50 or 100 percent off purchases that day (WOW!, wonder how lucky I’ll be that day?)
  • Costume Contest- Saturday October 25 only. All participants receive a coupon* for a free graphic tee (*valid this weekend only for a tee valued at $14.50 or less)
  • Shopping discounts- this is fun… discounts will be announced at random through the day like 13 percent off all black items or 31 percent off fashion items, etc.
  • Halloween Candy (got to have something for the kids since moms are getting all the deals…)

Mark your calendar now and go have some fun with your kiddos at Old Navy! Find your local store at

Stopping by to say hello - I'm part of the SSS tribe of folks. I like the way you post the same little note in each blog. ;) You are my hero.

*waves* Thanks for stopping by my little place online...just in case I am your SSS. :)

Leah said...

WOW, you are awesome at finding deals to share with the rest of us!! What would I do without you? I've never been good at finding deals and knowing "insider" stuff. You're like my good friend Carole. I would swear they stick out sale signs just for her. She's always finding awesome deals...

The prize you sent out looked like lots of fun, and the recipient has a great sense of humor! LOL That was a funny post she wrote.

Have a great day!
