Grow Your Blog Party Room!

Click now for JiffNotes


I saw this pop up on a few blogs just a couple days ago and I thought it looked like fun. I've met some really interesting (not to mention entertaining) people through blogging.

So. I am supposed to introduce myself. Um...hi? Let's see, I live in downtown Atlanta,
I'm a software developer who loves almost all things geeky, and for fun I like to read, travel,
 
sing, do needlework,
make people laugh, knit,
 
bake, have tea,
 
learn to use my camera more effectively,
 
 
dance,
 
and play teh vidya games.
 
And, you know, occasionally spell things correctly.

So if you're interested in reading about the random conglomeration of randomosity that is my life, then follow me! =D I'd love to return the visit to your blog, too!

If you've gotten this far, you deserve something, right? How about a giveaway! I will draw a name from all the comments on this post, and you will receive something handmade by me, along with some other goodies, tailored to your interests. I'll do the drawing on February 1st, 'cause I hear that's what all the cool kids are doing.

To enter my drawing, answer this question...
What 3 things did Heather "win" from Richard Dawson when she was on Family Feud? (WHAT. I was REALLY YOUNG.)

Entries are closed! Check the blog soon for the winner!

Ah ha! I had to hunt down the story I knew I remember it because it was almost a year ago when me and someone else gave you that Liebster Blog award and you had to answer the questions :)

CalamityJr said...

Ok, here's how I've spent the last hour - first I checked your posts with a small screen label, then skimmed all posts fron 2007, and returned here to give up and say a kiss and probably a sucker but that I have no idea of the third item. Of course I read the above comments and went back a year so now I know all three! Like Kimberly and Ziggy, though, I hesitate to write the correct answers for all to see, so I'm hoping you'll think I'm nuts for trying so hard and take my word for it, tee hee. Thanks for an evening of entertainment!

Emma/Itzy said...

Oh dear, I have no idea - nice post though :) I will go for a while stab in the dark and say...a hug? lol

Manon said...

Parsley said...

I love your blog and am happy to read here.

I remember him and he was awesome! He always gave a kiss to the ladies but I'm thinking he gave you some candy and perhaps an autographed picture too?

Hi Heather, I'm a bit of a sucker for a challenge so I've just read through most of your 2012 posts to find the answer. I loved the Lottlympiad posts, the cracked me up. As for the answer, A kiss, tootsie pops and 10 bucks!

So nice to meet you through the Grow Your Blog party. And I am glad I got here after you turned comments moderation on. It is those things that keep me up at night, too. :)

Is comment moderation on? I'll just check...

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Yes it is!! I used my Geek Superskills and put Dawson into the Search button to find the answer!

"a kiss from Richard, a bundle of Tootsie Pops (that was his "thing" to give out on the show) and TEN BUCKS CASH!!"

Bonus points to Ziggyeor for remembering about the Liebster award which came from me.
