Reunion and Giveaway!

I’m back! I have to apologize though because I didn’t end up with quite as many crazy stories as I promised. I forget that crazy stories usually requires some interaction with people and I generally try to avoid people when I’m on vacation. I’m more of a “swim with sea turtles” kind of gal then a “dance with scantily clad people who you don’t know” girl.

It’s usually impossible to avoid people completely though and I still came across some obnoxious people, like when we tried to go to a nice dinner one night and a couple decided it would be a good place to bring their three young sons. I should make it clear that I don’t hate all kids by default, just kids who each have their own personal iPad and play games on them with the sound on at a nice restaurant while their parents drown themselves in their cocktails. Otherwise, I like kids just fine.

The parents were oblivious to my death stare, even though I’ve been told that it’s quite good.

I’m also told that I’m quite menacing when I have an eye infection.

Speaking of menacing, I had a visit while I was on vacation from the Fairy Hobmother. Since “hob” means mischief or trouble, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but it turns out it was quite good because I won a $50 Amazon gift card from a comment I left on another blog I follow. If you’d like to get the chance to win a visit and a $50 gift card from the Fairy Hobmother at Appliances Online* all you have to do is leave a comment with a wish (make sure you leave a valid email and a link to your blog if you have one)! I think your wish is supposed to be what you would buy with your gift card, but if Amazon sells world peace or superpowers then feel free to wish for that too.

*I’m not being paid by Appliances Online nor am I affiliated with them in any way. I just like being able to give away things

  1. I have had this odd feeling lately that something has been missing from my daily doings… but you’re back. Yay for us!

    No wonder I couldn’t find where to leave my comment on the other blog duh!
    I have a dream of decorating my kitchen with some really nice thing from amazon πŸ™‚


  3. mkep73 says:

    Thank you for returning to us great leader…we have missed you!! I wish I had an Amazon gift card so that I could buy more books for my Kindle…love it!!


    • I ❀ my Kindle too. I was actually thinking of using my gift card to buy a new Kindle and "donate" my old Kindle to the Husband. I'm always trying to get him to read a book I just read and liked, but I can't separate myself long enough from my Kindle to let him read it.


      • mkep73 says:

        Been through the same thing…I was reading “The Passage” and kept telling him how good it was and how I couldn’t wait for him to read it. When I was done though I had another book to read so I made him buy his own copy of the book so I didn’t have to give up my Kindle πŸ™‚


  4. Susan Guiton says:

    I have seen a face just like yours…but she is very sweet on the inside. By the way your parents were not oblivious to your stare we just ignored it dear:)


  5. joekudi says:

    nice blog!!!
    I wish to win an $50 amazon gift card. I am desperately in need right now. Thanks


  6. If I had an Amazon gift card I would love to buy some good cook books for my mom πŸ™‚


  7. carmensebert says:

    i would love to be able to buy a keurig or a small coffee maker like that if i won the giftcard!


  8. Hi, I’m new to your blog, but I’ve bookmarked it now so I can come back. It seems we have a similar sense of humor and I love your cartoons!

    I would wish for the gift card so that I can buy the last 2 books I need from the Dark Tower Series and some books on crochet.

    Thanks! ( racergirl1313 AT hormail . com )


  9. Amanda W says:

    I’ve been wishing for an Amazon gift card to buy lots of books I want, so if I win, you’d be making my wish come true!


  10. meegs1982 says:

    Hmm, I wish for some new curtains for my livingroom. Boring… πŸ˜‰


  11. I would buy more books for my kindle!


  12. I wish I had a death stare as fierce as yours! Or an embroidery machine…


  13. sandy says:

    Neat giveaway. I wish that I had a kindle!!


  14. Amber says:

    An Amazon wish of a few books, and maybe a TV show on DVD sounds pretty fantastic! Thanks!

    perfect health not available at amazon. damn. nor is world peace. which should maybe be my first choice, but, well.

    you know what they should make? a remote control so that you can mute all electronic devices nearby where ppl should have the manners to mute them anyway. i saw a link for a remote that would turn off tvs, which i thought genius, but there needs to be something ranging to other devices…i really really really hate noise. there’s another wish…the wish to turn my ears off to obnoxious distractions.


  17. Emily says:

    Great giveaway. I’d love to use an Amazon gift card towards a Kindle as well. I go through about a book a day (I’ve got lots of free time at the moment) and I’m running out of space for all of my books!


  18. Alice C. says:

    I would get a recipe book! πŸ™‚


  19. Ang says:

    I wish I had an Amazon gift card so I could buy a big stash of new books to read! Thanks so much!

  20. Kelly says:

    I could easily spend $50 at Amazon………. haha


  21. Lauren S. says:

    I really really wish that my ex would pay his back owed child support (our son is 18 and out of school) and then disappear off the face of the earth. Not what you meant?? Oh, sorry, that WAS more of a rant wasn’t it? Hmmm…. I would LOVE to get some books for my kindle and feed the starving children in Botswana. πŸ˜€ Thanks so much for the entry.


  22. aliensunset says:

    i wish i had more board books to read to my son, i’ve read the old ones so many times that i have them memorized!


  23. Lauren says:

    My wish would be for a great book that I can share with my mom. πŸ™‚


  24. katie says:

    I wish for a new laptop. Mine is dead and I need a new one for school.


  25. Kelly says:

    There’s nothing I love more than books, so I would spend the $50 on some great new ones.


  26. I would buy a nursing bra. Very exciting, I know… but I’m about to be a new mommy (again) and there’s just something about a good nursing bra that makes you feel like more of a person and less of a 24/7 a milk factory πŸ˜‰


  27. Amanda S says:

    I would wish for a down payment on a kindle. I would love to own one.


  28. Ashley says:

    I wish for a kindle!

  29. i wish for a kindle!

  30. Sandy says:

    I would buy the DVD Closed for the Season which was filmed in an abandoned amusement park just down the street from me!


  31. MFA Mama says:

    I wish for an ice cream maker. I think cranking the thing would burn enough calories that…ehhhh probably not. But I still wish for one!


  32. Em says:

    My wish is for some business cards for my etsy shop I sell vintage goods.. Although I haven’t made many sales yet, I really enjoy working on it…it’s something that is “my own,” which is a big thing actually when you consider the fact that my three toddlers think everything that is mommy’s is theirs too! πŸ™‚


  33. Sara says:

    If I win ,I’d use this to buy books I need as a university fresher and also for my sister. It always feels strange when my mum buys me everything I need, and I can’t help her in anyway and contribute.
    Or maybe I’ll give it to my mum to buy whatever she wants.

    You are so kind of do these kind of giveaways ! :):)


  34. Crystal says:

    Wishing on blogs is totally the new wishing on stars. I’m wishing for the perfect new summer dress! (Yes, it’s almost fall now, but c’est la vie.)


  35. Anamarija T says:

    If I had an Amazon gift card I would love to buy some good cook books for myself!


  36. ikkinlala says:

    I don’t think Amazon does sell world peace (although they do seem to sell almost everything else), but my wish would be for a sock knitting book – I have a couple of choices in mind.


  37. I wish for a new purse!


  38. Tonya says:

    I would love to buy my daughter a kindle for Christmas – this would be a great start toward that!


  39. Andrea says:

    I wish for a $50 gift card to spend on my son’s birthday–he’ll still have a birthday if I don’t win, of course, but $50 would certainly help!


  40. Pinky Sade says:

    My wish it to win this prize! I would love to get my baby sister a nice birthday present! Thanks!


  41. berry says:

    I have a simple wish: a food dehydrator. My DH has been begging for one for years and this would allow us to get one.


  42. jacqueline says:

    i wish for a new kitchen rug !


  43. I’d start x-mas shopping!


  44. Amy says:

    Oh, Amazon! How I love thee and thy products! Since I can’t buy a boyfriend on Amazon, I wish for a gift card so I could get my best friend that Kindle she wants for Christmas! I hope that doesn’t sound sappy, but the girl sacrificed to get me one last Christmas, and how cool would it be to “pay” her back with her very own? πŸ™‚

  45. Lauren says:

    I wish for a clothes dryer!


  46. SarahF says:

    I wish I could surprise my husband with the blu-ray player he wants. A giftcard would help make that happen πŸ˜‰


  47. Jayton S. says:

    I wish for $50 to spend on Textbooks for college!


  48. Ashley says:

    I just got contacted by the Fairy Hobmother! I’m very excited and can’t wait to buy something with my Amazon gift card.
