Harumph. Bah Humbug. Blah.

Perhaps it's harder because I started my friggin' period this morning. I'm not feeling particularly moody- got that out of my system this weekend (Jeff can confirm). I lost that friggin' contest. After my wonderful friends came forward and voted for me... I ended up with 27 entries. Code Daddy then randomized the numbers, assigning everyone a series as broad as their number of entries. And a dude with 2 entries won it. Seriously. And can I tell you that I'm actually seriously bummed? You guys know how annoying I was about this! What a cool freakin' contest! What a cool prize! This guy PROPOSED to his wife by singing to her after hiking up a mountain or something. So now I'll just hide in my little corner of the blog-o-sphere and cry into my keyboard. The upside... and, yes, there is always an upside... my friend Nancy is now commenting! And my friend M.E. and Joanie and Garret and Alix and Amy and Lynn (who tried) and my husband Jeff and my friend Christy and... all showed their loyalty and love for me. And that's one hell of a silver lining.

Liz, I just wanted to commiserate (sp?) on the period thing. I just started my first post-partum period two nights ago. Man, I hadn't had a period in almost two years. It's ANNOYING!

Aw! I'm sorry you didn't win.

I'd sing for you but your ears would probably bleed.

Jeff said...

Bull$h!t. Assigning alphabetically and grouping all entries together... not random enough. You get pigeon-holed into a range. Entries should have been randomized too.

You was robbed!

Jim and Garret said...

Sorry you didn't win. I'm not sure I should comment on a loser's blog.

Oh, alright. Well, I did leave a comment on Code Monkeys blog try to guilt the winner to giving it up to you.

Smooches,
Garret

How do I put this. Hmmm. Typed in the guise of concern, no really, I DO mean it. PLEASE don't be sad over an Internet contest. It's so wrong ;-0. ~Mary

Amy said...

Well, that bites! Maybe you should invite him to be a guest blogger on your site and suggest he write a song about you to premiere at Eternal Lizdom? Then you could TRICK him into writing you a song!

Liz said...

Amy is an evil manipulator! Bwahahaha!

Mary- no worries. I'm already over it. :) It was fun to pout a bit, though. And it was a good excuse to eat a Reese's Peanut Butter Egg.

Garret- my knight in shining armor! Standing up to defend my honor!

Flartus- no crap!

Jeff- You could write a song for me... or a poem... or draw me a picture... or write me a story... that would help me feel better.

Joanie- thank you.

Beth- It sucks. A lot. I hear ya!

Before a mob forms and storms our house with pitchforks and torches, Liz..check your email, lady...that's all I gots to say. :)

Nancy said...

Awww I am so bummed that you didn't win! Delainey can sing a mean "Twinkle Twinkle" for you. If you are really lucky, she might sing the spider song for you! Not quite the same, but ....

Liz said...

Nancy- I totally want you to record Delainey singing twinkle Twinkle for me... it's got to be adorable!
