It’s hard to type tonight. I’m currently wearing 3 Band-Aids on my fingers on account of the fact that I made the mistake of getting in the middle of a fight between the cat and her shower rug… and then the 3rd finger I managed to grate to death. Anyone for grated bloody finger skin on top of your taco!?!? Yeah… that was nasty. I apologize for saying it whilst not wearing my rose-colored glasses. So, moral of the story: Let the cat have her dagnabbed shower rug and buy pre-grated cheese. Who invented the grater anyway!?!? Obviously someone with more talent and skin than I have!
In other news, a month or so back, I entered a #GiftToast contest spons0red by JCPenney and Trisha Yearwood to win one of her pan sets. I entered it thinking it would just be like any other contest I enter… chances slim to none that I’ll ever get that 1 minute it took to type my name and info back. The last time I won something it was as a teeny bopper when I won a typewriter for entering an essay contest at GuidePosts Magazine. When I say “won” I really mean I only won it for like an hour. When they figured out that my birthday fell short of the age limit by a year, they took it back. I was too young. Y’all… can you believe how old I am!!! I won a freaking TYPEWRITER when I was 15… a TYPEWRITER!?!?!? Oh my laws, Grog, get me my chisel.
To make a short story even longer, I haven’t really won anything since, so I guess I was overdo because you could have knocked me over with a feather when Trisha Yearwood private messaged me to tell me that I had won her pan set! I then immediately started giggling like a mental patient and I’m sure when I answered her back I said some really idiotic things. Whitney and the idea of talking to a famous person do not go hand in hand… even if it’s behind a computer/phone screen! Scratch that… Whitney and the idea of talking to ANYONE do not go hand in hand!
They arrived this past week… I’m pretty sure it’s a sign that I should cook more… and dump more bottles of oregano… and grate off my fingers more!
They’re ceramic non-stick so they’re super nice, and the clean up is a snap… especially since you can throw them in the dishwasher. Look at me being all advertisey and such. It was not one of the prerequisites to winning, I can assure you!
All in a day’s work… a $150 to $300 pan set for FREE… not lottery winning big yet, but a girl’s gotta work up to that. An hour with a typewriter… pan set… BILLION DOLLARS! But I guess first I’d have to become a gambler. Eh… is Ed McMahon’s prize patrol still out there!?
Question of the Day: Have you ever won anything? If so, what was it?
There was blue sky for approximately 2 minutes this morning before the heavy layer of inversion took over. It’s the little things!
