The numbers on my google countdown til school are starting to get small. Really small. Small enough that my stomach clenches up each time I look at them and wonder “Dear gods of Mount Olympus what the HELL am I thinking, going back to school?”
A mixture of panic and good old fashioned PMS reduced me to tears for the better part of my morning while I was making hotel arrangements for that weekend. The tears were only increased by the realization that mommyknitwit and lilsis won’t be able to drive down to say a proper goodbye. We’ll have to do that Thursday night. (Here come those tears again!)
So is born the contest. Leave me a comment with a college story. Funny. Moving. So sweet it’ll make me gag. Didn’t go to college? Make up the silliest drunken-frat-boy-toga-party story you can imagine. Make me laugh. Distract me with silliness. Tell me how you fended off scurvy by eating your Skittle a day or ate so many Ramen Noodles that you had nightmares of being crushed by towering piles of wavy pasta bricks.
Prizes: The more comments the more prizes I’ll have. I’m going to go all out, as this is likely the last contest I’ll have for a good long time.
0-20 comments – 1 prize
21-40 comments – 2 prizes
41-?? Comments – 3 prizes.
Prizes will consist of:
Handmade bracelet in the color of winner’s choice
Beaded book thong
Handmade stitch markers
Mixed CD of songs that make me happy
The deadline is Friday July 20th, exactly one month before classes begin.
