WINNING! But not like Charlie Sheen!

One of the bad things about getting older is that sometimes the memory starts to have, well, let's call them lapses shall we? Now, I'm only in my early 30s, but already I have trouble remembering things. My boss calls this "Some-zheimers". My mother has "All-the-damn-time-zheimers" but we try not to tease her too much about it. You know what I'm talking about right? Get up from the couch, walk the 15 feet to the kitchen and proceed to stand there with a dumbass look on your face while you consider the options for WHY you are there?

Happens to me multiple times a day.


So, needless to say, I forgot that I was meant to be doing the draw for that book, "The End of Overeating". Yesterday. More than 24 hours ago. Can I use being blonde as an excuse? It works for Paris Hilton!

I finally remember 20 minutes ago. At 9 p.m. New Zealand time. I can't even honestly remember why I remembered. HA! See? "Some-zheimers"!

I took all the entries (10 of them, including my more-forgetful-than-me mother) and wrote them down on ugly yellow pieces of paper. Yeah, I like to kick it old school once in awhile. And then? Then I remembered that I had no impartial person here to pull out a name for me because my husband left to go back to work today. 

So I did what any good mother would do. I went and woke up my daughter.

WHAT?!? After all those months of screaming, pooing, screaming some more and keeping me up half the night, I figured it was about time I was given the chance to wake HER up for once. So I did.

She wasn't nearly as UNimpressed as I'd thought she would be. It was kind of a let down actually. Maybe next time.

I think it might be a reflection of how used to my kind of crazy she is, when she doesn't even question WHY her mother has woken her up and handed her a bowl of paper. She just blindly goes along with it.

"Ok, now pick out a piece of paper for me and hold it up for the camera once you've unfolded it."

She started to giggle right about then, as I'm sure the ridiculousness of it all was hitting her. Or maybe she was just tired. Either way, I'm not sure whose hands were shaking more as I zoomed in to take a picture of the piece of paper so y'all could see who actually won.

Congratulations to Lorne from Ladybug Beauty! If you email me, I'll get that book out to you ASAP.

As for the rest of you, bring your friends along to this here party, and the fun over at my Facebook Page and pretty soon I'll be having another giveaway. FUN right?!
