...Making a mess of things since 1973


OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!

Last week, I wrote about entering the contest Jenny at Three Kid Circus was having.

The prize was a Wii and a Wii Fit Kit, which my fiance and I have been coveting for some time now. Okay, he's been coveting the Wii because he has nephews and can't wait to play games with them online, and I've been coveting the Fit Kit because I have both a very large bottom. And a death wish.

Anyway, I won!! Wooooo!!!!! I mean, WOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

I'd been blogstalking TKC all morning, even while I was doing some actual work (the cats must eat, after all) and then checked my email, only to find that Three Kid Circus had sent me a message, letting me know that I had won.

Here is my graceful, ladylike, polite reply;

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!

You're freakin' kidding me!!! Ohh! Holy cow, I'm crying! Oh, don't post that! Oh, whatever, I don't mind - shame and I are only distant acquaintances. Oh, I'm gonna feel like an even BIGGER dork if this is the online version of Punked! You should have heard the sound I emitted when read your email - somewhere between a squealing pig and a whistle - EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! The E's don't do it justice. Oh, I'm rambling.

My address is xxxxxxxxxxxx. My phone number is xxxxxxxxxx.

Yay you! Yay me! Yay Nintendo!

Thank you so very much - this means an awful lot to me! I never win anything - no raffles, no lotteries, not even free coffee! I'm really, really grateful! And now I'm going to go blog about my gratefulness! I'll post pictures of the injuries I'm certain I'll sustain - I'm not sure if I can post video, because my ass will not fit comfortaby across 600 pixels, but I'll try!

Geesh, Rachelle - gush much?

Seriously, though, I'm incredibly grateful to Three Kid Circus and Nintendo for offering such a great prize, and for choosing my submission out of such an incredibly funny group of entries.

Here in Canada, this is the first day back to work from a long weekend, so this is a quasi-Monday. I hereby label this The Best Quasi-Monday I Have Ever Had! Once again, note that I cannot resist Using Too Many Capital Letters!

Woo hoo!!!

WOO HOO indeed! I cannot wait to hear about the adventures of Rachelle and the Wii. One suggestion. Wear the wrist strap!! Seriously. Never forget. We have had some close calls with the big flat screen tv because of a random visitor forgetting to strap on the wrist strap!
I am so very happy for you!!!

and the post that made you a winner had me laughing out loud - very discreetly, though, because my family is in bed.

Congratulations!! Have fun with your wii!

Blogger Kelly Says:

CONGRATS on you winning the Wii!!!
