I know all three of you are just tingling with anticipation, so here goes…
Third place goes to Cheryl for: spanked hubby
How did I miss this post?
Second place goes to Jodi for: how big is a llama’s penis
Who wants to know?! Go visit Jodi here to see more of the kind of wackiness that’s bringing people to her site. I think she actually saved her best for her own post. At first I considered deducting points for selfishness, but who among us wouldn’t have done the same thing? If you haven’t been over to Jodi’s site before, check it out.
And first place to Madhousewife for: haul used pantyhose
I didn’t actually laugh my buttock off, but I’m delightfully intrigued for the same reasons Mad gave. Plus, I couldn’t really make up my mind (I also quite enjoyed “mein comfy chair hitler” and “potty training donkeys”), so I threw all the entries into a “hat” and this is the one I pulled out. Congrats Mad!
Now, as for the promised fabulous prize, in the interest of full disclosure I did not actually know what the fabulous prize would be when I first offered the incentive. I did a search for “fabulous prize” to see if it sparked any ideas—all I found was a bunch of random blogs of people giving away random (often unspecified) prizes, one of which was a handsewn sock monkey. A genuine handsewn sock monkey? How can I possibly compete with that?! I cannot.
So you’ll have to settle for a genuine DVD copy of one of these fine films recorded off my DVR:
From the recent The Complete Jane Austen series:
Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, Miss Austen Regrets, Mansfield Park, Emma or Sense and Sensibility
Sorry, I do not have Pride & Prejudice as I already own that on DVD. These are all good (well, Mansfield Park was kind of eh), but I highly recommend Sense and Sensibility—in my opinion, it’s superior to the Emma Thompson version.
Also from Masterpiece:
A Room With a View
My Boy Jack (This one stars Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe as John “Jack” Kipling, son of Rudyard Kipling and is about his service in WWI. I haven’t actually watched it yet. It sounds good, but depressing.)
If Masterpiece Theater isn’t your thing, I also recently recorded Step Into Liquid, a really fun surfing documentary. I can’t say that I’m particularly into surfing, but I found this a delightful and fascinating way to kill 90 minutes.
To collect your prize, e-mail me at bythelbs at yahoo dot com with your address and DVD selection. I’ll also throw in some other bonus surprise(s), so you can still hold out hope for something fun and exciting (I can tell you right now there will be no handsewn sock monkeys—just put the sock monkey out of your minds, people) if you’re disappointed by the DVD offering.
Speaking of sock monkeys…
old school sock monkey
pity the fool sock monkey
Chewy sock monkey (where’s the sock?)
And last, but most certainly not least…
sock monkey dress?
