ANOTHER FUN MUD GIVEAWAY!!

As we head to The Weekend and into next week, this Mudchick's calendar is chockablock full of important stuff to do. Stuff like REINTRODUCE SELF TO CHILDREN and SHAVE ARMPITS. Not to mention reading all of YOUR blogs. As a result, my posting will be sporadic. In a desperate effort to maintain readership..ermmmm, I mean in the spirit of benevolence....I bring you ANOTHER FUN MUD GIVEAWAY ( Imagine 12 piece marching band and confetti here.)

This is what we're playing for Ladies and My One Gent:



It's a TIME-ISH watch. For those of you who are kinda "it is What It Is" about time. Designed by me and made out of Real Stainless Steel, with a genuine leather band, it's a brand new ONIM item not yet available to the General Public. If over 30 responses are posted we will be able to offer our usual 2nd and 3rd prizes, which are this clock:



This is How To Enter:

1. In COMMENTS please finish this sentence: I BLOG BECAUSE...

2. You may enter as many times as you would like. But you may make people wonder if you have a life if you comment too much, I'm just sayin.

3. You may comment up until Midnight, Tuesday August 26, 2008. After that it's too late to be up and YOU SHOULD BE IN BED PEOPLE.

4. On Wednesday afternoon, we will put all of your comments into a hat and Sexyhusbandomine will pull out a winner which will be posted Wednesday night, August 27, 2008.

5. I will contact you and ship your prize right out.

Good Luck everybody!

I Blog because.......... I have one of those jobs that gives me waaaaay too much free time with nothing to do but browse and bore people with my rantings...

Spatula said...

I blog because it's part of my plan for domination of this and other worlds.

Miss Thystle said...

I blog because no one who knows me thinks I'm funny, but I've got ALL y'all fooled.

Also, because on the interwebs, you can't see that I don't comb my hair everyday and therefor can not judge me.

And finally, because I "meet" wicked cool people like you!

(why, yes, that WAS an attempt to butter you up)

What a fun prize!

I blog. . .to document and reflect.

...to connect.

...to hopefully entertain.

...to listen to myself talk?

...to have an outlet.

...to keep perspective.

*tap, tap, tap*

Is this thing on?

I blog because no one in my house listens to anything I have to say. And I know I have important things to talk about, darn it!

T R L said...

I blog because it is the only things that makes all the voices in my head talk one at a time instead of all at once.

I started blogging about 3 years ago, because it suddenly became very popular here and a blog was "must have" thing. If you don't blog, you don't exist, you know...

So I made a knitting blog, because this is my biggest hobby and other knitters were blogging too.
The beginning was very funny. I knew nothing about this online world and I truly thought I need to post a new interesting story every single day. And blog can't be interesting without photos, so sometimes I knitted until midnight to finish a new knitting project and post it online, so no-one would say I missed a day :)))

Luckily soon I realized that no-one will die if I pass a day and write only 2-3 times a week. And it was more fun like this.

But why I still blog... In those 3 years I have found some great online friends all over the world and this is a great way to keep in touch and see what others are doing.
And I admit it's nice to read the comments, see the blog statistics and feel like I'm a bit important, if so many people take a time to check out how I'm doing.

Racie Lover said...

Are we talking about bloggin vs posting? Since I am a blognovice and am not familiar with all the terms yet, I need to know the difference. Actually, I'm sort of a BlogLoiter.

If I qualify for your contest here is my entry:

I blog /post because my true calling as an International Movie Star has (so far) not panned out and I have a lot of time on my hands.

TJ said...

Mrs. B. Roth said...

I blog because I have to or I'll go crazy .. I am just full of stuff I have to get out and it's nice when people comment. I really really really really like both those time keeping devices!

kwr221 said...

I blog because...

I'm now addicted.

I've met/read some really funny people because I can't stop reading/ posting.

It's a great thing to do when you have insomnia.

I'm eternally hopefully that I'll win something really cool and my watch stem thingy broke last week:-(

kwr221 said...

Oh, and in the marching band? My favorite instrument is the kazoo.

And the tuba.

But the kazoo is easier to carry.

Nice band, by the way.

Fe said...

Oooh! Cool stuff!!

i blog because I don't have enough to do as a single mum with 2 businesses. Obviously.

And because I have many friends around the world and I'm too lazy to email them individually.

And because I find people like you with COOL STUFF to giveaway!!

PearlsOfSomething said...

I blog because I think that one day I'll pull something brilliant out of my butt, and I want to have a record of it.

And I mean that figuratively but, the web being what it is, I suppose that literally pulling something out of my butt would generate more hits. Not my target audience, but still.

And I REALLY want free stuff. :)

Tracy said...

I blog... so that I can remember all the cute/horrible/funny things happening in my life which I will have forgotten by Tuesday if I don't immediately write it down.

zakary said...

I blog because there is nothing good on TV anymore.

And I drink because my children cry.

pogonip said...

I blog because...somewhere I learned to enjoy writing. And it's much easier than journalling 'cause I can use photos. And now I blog because I've made so many friends out there in the blogosphere.

PearlsOfSomething said...

I blog because all the cool kids are doing it.

Shonda Little said...

I blog because I think it is my best path for world domination.

Debbie said...

I blog because my humor, intellect, advice, and beauty are wasted on just the locals.
Just found your blog and it is great. Love the watch and clock and the humor!

Mambinki said...

I blog because it is good practice. LIke many other bloggers, I enjoy writing and realize that the more I write, the more I think of writing.
I like to go about my day and then tell myself "I can blog about this!". That can be hard for me sometimes, because I spend my days in a REALLY INTERESTING AND OFTEN FUNNY social work job, but everything I do is safely protected by federal laws of confidentiality and trying to get readership by posting about the vulnerable is messed up. SO I typically post about movies I watch, my yoga and meditation practice, my cats, trips I go on with my surfer boyfriend, etc. No too exciting, but my grandparents read it on a very regular basis which is quite sweet, I think.

Debra W said...

I blog because I enjoy writing and love connecting with other people who I would not ordinarily get to meet.

Hugs,
Debbie

penelope said...

I blog because if I didn't, I would have pulled out all my hair long ago.

LOVE the prizes.

Queen of the Universe said...

I blog because..... i have all these thoughts in my head and if I couldn't get them down on paper ('puter) I'd probably go nuts from the buildup.

Although it's probably too late. People tell me that I'm already nuts. That may be why I haven't blogged in a while :)

I blog because it is an outlet for subconscious narcissism! Isn't that why everyone blogs?

Miss J said...

Hi Lorrie,

I have been meaning to tell you that every time I walk into my garage now, I think about you...It's true, I think, "I wonder how Lorrie is doing today." or "Lorrie is such a sweetheart!" or "Gosh, that Lorrie comes up with the cutest stuff!" You see, right after Chanukah, I found three of your "Create a Chanukah Platter" kits(not sure exactly what they are officially called, but I think you know which ones they are), at 50% off, and so I purchased two for my little nieces, and one for my family. Being the totally organized person that I am(NOT!), they are still sitting neatly inside of my garage right by the door. Each time I walk in and out, I look at them and think of you. It's a nice reminder that I loved your work even before I "met" you through our blogs, and that I like it even more now that I actually know you! So fun!

Thank you so much for the lovely comment you left for me the other day! Your kind words really mean a lot to me. You are so good for my spirit, dear one. I am going to be adding you to my "Favorite Places to Visit" in the next couple of days because I think you are adorable!

Hope you had a great weekend!

hugs,
Debbie
