Contest is Almost Closed! Hurry!

Ok, guys.  Just a reminder that the contest closes tonight at midnight.  You have to reply to the email that WordPress sends to verify you are a human.  The good/bad news is that there aren’t that many people in this drawing as of right now.  So the odds of winning are REALLY good right now.  What are you waiting for?


An Obsession, A Challenge, and a Prize

First, the obsession.  Tea.  I was looking for a specific tea in my cupboard when I realized that I have an unhealthy amount of tea.  No wonder R is always fussing when I bring home yet another box of leafy goodness.  Seriously.  I removed all the boxes of tea and as I organized them and put them away I wrote a list.  Six brands and a total of 14 boxes (I didn’t count the plain bags of tea for ice tea in the summer OR the second box of my ultimate fave).

Now, for the challenge.  I’ve been stumbling over posts here are there about the six-word memoir.  It really is neat.  Here’s some that caught my eye.

Ignorance is bliss. Genius is misery.

Your challenge is to submit your own six word memoir.  The best submission gets a prize.  Hurry.  The deadline is 11:00am Veteran’s Day (11/11/08).  I will announce the winner that evening!

Get to writing people!  Now, I have to start scrounging up a prize.
