PALIN / BIDEN DEBATE MUD GIVEAWAY


In honor of last night's Great Debate... ( which honestly, I didn't watch more than ten minutes of. I hate Horror Movies.) I offer this MUD GIVEAWAY. This fabulous set of mugs can be YOURS ( you can use the one that doesn't apply to your beliefs for guests) if you follow today's set of rules...which are all about being neighborly and maverickish. So while you may not be able to see Alaska from your back yard, cast a glance over the fence of your blogosphere and do the following:

1. Enter someone ELSE to win this giveaway by posting their blog url. That's right: YOU CANNOT ENTER YOUR OWN BLOG. (You certainly cannot enter your own blog 14 times, *clears throat* Kristin.) You can enter multiple blog urls on INDIVIDUAL COMMENTS.

2. Post on that lucky person's blog that you have entered them in this fantastic giveaway and suggest that they, in turn, try to win you a cruise or send you a pack of scratch off lottery tickets or AT THE VERY LEAST enter your blog in exchange for the fact that you went to allllll that trouble on their behalf.

3. Australia: you are welcome to play along, but if you nominate someone else in Australia and they win, they will have to retrieve their prize in person. (Maybe Blu will offer another airplane ticket giveaway.) Everyone else in the USA, I will ship you your prize via UPS.

4. Entries can be posted up until Midnight Monday October 6; after that YOU SHOULD BE IN BED. Winner will be announced Tuesday October 7.

5. If comments on this post reach 50 or more, the person who nominated the winner will ALSO WIN A SUPER SPECIAL PRIZE. Because one good deed deserves another.

Happy Friday everybody!!!!

Oh I will nominate Heather @ http://www.dooce.com/

sarah@soulmoxie said...

I am denominating heather because she gets enough free shit. And anyway, she gets enough free shit. Did I mention that twice? woopsy. I will nominate, um, hmm, um, Carrie at www.sparkerly.com because she needs bleeding heart liberal mug to remind her to breathe.

Blue said...

I will nominate my favorite economist, former neighbor, globe-trotting buddy and fancypantsy-smarter-than-ObamabinBaden -and-ImPalingMcCane combined

http://feministeconomist.blogspot.com/

She'd love these mugs!

Blue said...

ooh ooh ooh. I can do more?!

Okay, my BIL needs one. He's one of the funniest guys you'll ever meet IRL. Truly. You should watch the little videos he makes. Just a fun way to kill time in the garage which he painted a green screen in. His blog is http://www.talkjockey.com/ (here's a link to one of my favorite vids)

He definitely makes family get-togethers a lot more fun.

Debbie said...

I fell asleep during that debate. AFter about 15 minutes, I knew the scripts by heart, anyway. I kinda want these mugs pretty badly. I am nominating Laurie @ http://whatevercomestolauriesmind.blogspot.com/.

Bj in Dallas said...

ha ha I beat Racie

http://www.waitwaittheresmore.blogspot.com

she would love the mug on the right which really should be on the left.........i'm just sayin

Blue said...

And yet another, cause she's so delightful. I have no idea which, if either, mug she'd be keen on. But winning is fun, and Debbie should have some fun right now!

Four Angels Momma

Mrs. B. Roth said...

Can I nominate Jenny The Blogess, she makes me laugh.

Blue said...

And one final offering, then I'm done.

Le may be far away, but she's savvy and could very well use a trip to the Grand 'ole USofA. So I submit Third on the Right as a contender. May the best Aussie win! ;-)

Laurie said...

I made my hubby watch it in the other room. It brings me down to watch them, so I try not to. But inevitably, I hear my husband groan about something, so I ask and then it sucks me in....

I'm nominating Debbie at http://suburbsanity.blogspot.com/

Nadine Hightower said...

My first entry...Kristy at http://ventl8r.blogspot.com/

Nadine Hightower said...

2nd entry...Susan at http://tragedy-strikes.blogspot.com/

ZooKeeper said...

And I return the favor and nominate Nadine Hightower. http://velvettush.blogspot.com/

ZooKeeper said...

and Jenn because without her I wouldn't know diddly squat about what is going on in the political world. http://singlejenn.spaces.live.com/

Miss Thystle said...

TOO MUCH STRESS. I know, like, 500 bloggers. And they are all my favorite.

Um, okay. I nominate Miz Nadine,, my invisible internet Okie sister.

Downbeat said...

Well if Kristin isn't allowed to enter 14 times, i'll enter at least once on her behalf. I nominate Kristin because she's cool. And she needs to take more pictures of herself with Our Name is Mud Stuff in them.

Racie Lover said...

Thanks, BJ, although I am a little confused about how the contest works. But I nominate you: http://dontoverthinkit.blogspot.com

But now I'm worried that we're all just nominating each other and it's becoming very incestuous and don't we need some new blood lest the gene pool becomes contaminated and we start spawning two-headed babies who end up marrying their cousins?

Or am I just be paranoid?

ThreadBeaur said...

I did watch the debate all the way through. I actually enjoyed it... imagine my surprise!

I want to put my friend in to the hat for this one!
http://misosouper.com

I hope she wins!

ThreadBeaur said...

Another friendly blogger at http://grapeinabottle.com
would probably appreciate this giveaway too!

Now to tell them I have entered them into the contest!

Thanks!

Megan said...

Twenty-one seems like an excellent number to nominate Penelope from The Lo.Co. Because she is a little loco, but in a most fantastic way! (www.peneloccupation.blogspot.com)

Perhaps she is enough of a fence rider that she can drink from each cup, depending on the day and her mood!

Le @ Third on the Right said...

Hello Lorrie - If I win I have a brother in Willmington so you can ship them there and he can bring them home next trip.

So I nominate Jen at www.jenx67.com as she is my hero as far as political correctness goes ... le xoxo

ps v nice of you to do this - fun I bet :)

Le @ Third on the Right said...

I also nominate BLUE http://bluejeuls.blogspot.com/

as my fav high flyer - the tip of the week just had my laughing out loud - she is divine !! And we get to see her all hostie - ed opps flight attendant - ed out in her gear too :)

Why to airlines always have scarves as part of the uniform - I immediately think it is to cover hickies - but that is probably just me .... love le xoxo

Le @ Third on the Right said...

Sometimes I re-read my comments and think - what the !!????

So I definately DO NOT think blue would be a hickie girl ... she is way too angelic for that kind of nonsense ... now if you were to say BJ or racie or even you Ms Lorrie ... then I could beleive that .... :) maybe even Sarah soul moxie too ... but not Blue

So have I anyone left to aleinate .... :) devil made me do it .... le xoxoxox

Fe said...

I feel totally responsible for the Australian exclusion. I am SO sorry that we are 17000 kms away and cost a bloody fortune to ship to. (and so grateful that you did so for my beloved "whatever" clock).

So, having said that, I will have any future prizes that I win on your blog (born optimist) sent to a friend of mine in Pennsylvania.

And.... I'm nominating an american blogger for this one...

JenX67 said...

I'm nominating http://junkdrawer67.com

I love his blog and his latest post about Palin is SNL worthy. Especially the lurker stuff and the comments about all her "doggone" comments.

JenX67 said...

by the way, great idea, lorrie. they're so fun. i love the colors.

kwr221 said...

Ahem.. I feel like I've been slightled and my reputation smeared. I want to enter at LEAST 14 other wonderful bloggers, but since I'm in Niagara Falls, ON and will soon be getting poisonous dart looks from my DH for being on the computer, I will just say, "Yay, Tif!" and enter her -
http://downbeatmuse.blogspot.com/.

I had to suffer through that debate nonsense (can you even call it a *debate if they don't actually answer the questions?)with my right-wing nut job father -in-law sitting next to me, while wishing I had a bleeding heart liberal mug to drink my coffee in. We had very different views on how the debate turned out.

janell berryman artist-owner said...

Love your blog. Thanks for stopping by mine. You must be a writer on the side. Fabulous picture of those ghouls on the roller coast. So much to read and look at! I will add you to my blog list and visit often. Stop by again soon :) Janell

Janet said...

I'd like to nominate my bleeding heart liberal best friend Amy. She just started her blog this week and I'm hoping she keeps going with it!

http://mamiebelle.blogspot.com/

kwr221 said...

Yes, Racie - this is probably incestuous, but if nobody's nominated Miss Thystle yet, I'll do it.

missthystle.com

This is fun!

kwr221 said...

And I definitely have to enter Tori from Babybloomr

http://babybloomr.com/

she always makes me laugh!

kwr221 said...

And Linda doesn't make me laugh so much as make me soul search which is a welcome thing in this crazy world.

TJ said...

I'm nominating my sister April in honor of her finally starting a blog.
knappshot.blogspot.com

kwr221 said...

As you can see, I'm trying my hardest to help you reach 50!

TJ said...

Great, now I have to nominate my other sister so she doesn't feel bad.
strebelfamily.blogspot.com

Amy said...

I'd like to nominate my right wing nut job best friend Janet. She may have strange politics but she's a great friend!

http://janetlanderson.blogspot.com/

zakary said...

I don't know her, but I would like to nominate Sarah at Soul Moxie because she had a very hard week.

http://www.soulmoxie.com/

babybloomr said...

I'd like to nominate Emily, cute-as-a-bunny mom to twin Elvis-loving boys: http://emilythemom.blogspot.com/

(And thank you, sweet kwr221!)

Poetikat said...

I nominate Blicky Kitty:

http://blickykitty.blogspot.com/

I just know she would love these mugs!

Kat

Le @ Third on the Right said...

ohhh Ms Lorrie - you are in my real really real life honey child !!

If you called we would find the chocolate, plus the chardy, scrapbook images of the cat, fund a hit on your no longer sexy husband, buy some falsies with glitter extensions, start a business together, negotiate your debt down to a reasonable level by way of oral favours and befriend the stalker and turn him into our pool boy ....

so there ... what next babe :) le xo


Oh and I nominate Sarah at Soul Moxie - poor babe needs a big cuppa something warm and soothing ...

micaela6955 said...

I would love to nominate John, the humble librarian from Hartland. He has a sense of humor, writes well, plus these mugs would make a nice addition to his desk at the library. Here's his blog:

http://sennebec.livejournal.com/

Bj in Dallas said...

I nominate the Sled Team, which would have their own blog if any of them had a thumb.........
but then, Bella would eat the computer and I would have that to clean up, and no one would admit to anything, and the circle starts all over again. Are we at 50 yet?

zakary said...

Oh, we need to get to 50.

I nominate Kreg because he is still on the fence about blogging...even though he has one!

http://kraigg.blogspot.com/

Go say hi and leave him funny comments. He loves it.

kwr221 said...

I have to nominate my real life friend, Karen who writes a General Hospital blog
http://kdmask.wordpress.com/

but really, she's a political junkie and was probably jumping off the couch during these debates. She can choose her own awesome mug. ;-)

Blicky Kitty said...

Oh I'm so happy to have been nominated. These blogs are all way fun. Oh I definitely want to return the favor and nominate my new blog buddy Kat's Generation X web site:

http://cultclipsgenx.blogspot.com/2008/10/hardy-har-har.html

Blue said...

So am I going to have to single-handedly get us all up over the 50 comment mark?

Very well.

Another person I could nominate to win these mugs is Dana over at Northern Wisdom

She's smart, savvy, and an expat from Canada with strong opinions. She's also beautiful, but thankfully my Doc still only has eyes for me.

Blue said...

Here's my next submission

Steve Happens

He's hilarious. I bought his house. His commercials are pretty funny.

Now, question. Do I keep adding two more, or will someone else step up to the plate and nominate someone. Cause I don't think Ms. Lorrie actually wanted BLUE to submit all 50 entries.

Nine more hours folks.

Racie Lover said...

I am leaving another comment to try and get this thing up to 50 total, although I can't think of anyone else to nominate. Is this bending the rules?

I am still worried about the whole incest thing, too.

Anonymous said...

Oh for crying out loud, FIFTY ALREADY

Janet said...

I'd like to nominate Brandy at mrsbroth.blogspot.com.

Her address may look like an ad for chicken soup, but her blog is one of my favorite reads!

Blue said...

Blue would like to extend a special thanks to Racie Lover, Anonymous and Janet for stepping up to the plate. Just 30 minutes to go everyone!

Jodi Renshaw said...

I nominate Hobo Camp Crafts:

http://www.hobocampcrafts.blogspot.com/

I think she will think they are a hoot.

Thanks,
Jodi
