Trying Again – Pay it Forward


OK, so a while back, I tried to do a Pay it Forward contest. It was shortly after I moved from diaryland to here, and my already small readership was a bit off-kilter. And the response was decidedly underwhelming. As in – not a single taker. Perhaps part of the problem was that it was a handmade contest – all prizes had to be something you made yourself. And while I got a great bag from Magpie, I got no response whatsoever (and I promised to send a “Pay it Back” gift which I swear I am still planning on doing, but I suck very much and am slow in the creative, make it yourself department).

So anyway, Swistle coordinated another PIF contest and I clicked and read and then pretended like my phone was ringing and someone was at the door and lalalalalala I can’t hear you or anything about your contests. But I can’t help it – it’s fun. So late to the party, I am having another PIF contest. This time, the prizes don’t’ have to be handmade, because that adds a little to much work and responsibility to the mix and a quick look around my house will tell you how I feel about those things. This time around, I’m following Swistle’s lead and going with a random mystery prize. It may be one thing, it may be a bunch of things. It won’t be expensive. It will most likely be silly and quirky. It will reflect me and if possible, you (if I can figure you out based on what you write).

It would be awesome if the winner would do a little PIF themselves, but I am not even requiring it, because fuck it – I just want to have some fun here.

And in the name of fun, I am using a little true/false quiz to determine the winner. Leave your answers in the comments and the person with the best score will win. I the event that there is a tie, I will do the random thing. And who knows – if I get a good response (hahahahaha – I crack myself up) I may go all crazypants and have more than one winner. Because I just roll like that.

I’ll keep it open until Friday.

  4. I’ll guess. Fun idea! I want to know the answers now though….TTFFFTTFFTTFFFTTTTFTTFTTTFFTFFFTFWhy do I feel like all of these are going to end up being either true or false though?

  5. Ok, I clicked over from Swistle because you have a great blog title. And hooray, you are a hilarious writer. Also, after reading through all your questions, I was expecting to see if the last question was “disregard all of the above and just post anything to enter contest”. Ah well. I’m taking a huge leap and saying the only one that’s true is that you got married in Vegas.

  6. Did I SO miss the directions to the quiz? I answered for myself, not what I thought were T/F for YOU. Well, there goes my chance at winning!! 🙂

  7. Ooh! Fun! Okay, obviously I don’t know you that well so I’m really just guessing here: 1. T2.T3. F4.T5. F6. F7. F8. T9. F10. F11. F12. T13. F14. F15. T16. T17. T18. T19. F20. T21. T22. T23. T24. T25. T26. F27. F28. F29. T30. F31. F32. F33. FIf I get 50% that would be pretty good, right? 😉 Will you explain all the T’s at the end?
