Merry Christmas to all - even the losers!

I'm not sure who the winners are in this BESTEST EVER FAUX GIVEAWAY: the people who "win" the wonderful prizes and have to go buy them back from the Goodwill or those "poor souls" who go away empty handed!?!

So without further ado - let the gift giving begin.
I am soooo charitable!

To Melissa at The Howell Herald:
You asked for it, you got it - the 238 empty CD cases.

And because I love you -
The much sought after lyrics to "Come on Eileen."

"Poor old Johnny Ray
Sounded sad upon the radio, he moved a million hearts in mono.
Our mothers cried and sang along and who'd blame them.
Now you're grown, so grown, now I must say more than ever.
Go Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye-Aye
and we can sing just like our fathers.
Come on Eileen,
I swear (well he means) At this moment you mean everything,
With you in that dress my thoughts I confess verge on dirty
Ah come on Eileen.

These people round here wear beaten down eyes,
Sunk in smoke dried faces they're so resigned to what their fate is,
But not us, no not us we are far too young and clever.
Remember Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye-Aye
Eileen I'll hum this tune forever.
Come on Eileen, I swear, well he means
Ah come on let's take off everything,
That pretty red dress Eileen (Tell him yes)
Ah come on let's, ah come on Eileen, please.

To McMom at Mom Outnumbered

She says she is using them for a Donny & Marie costume.
Don't be shy!
We all know she is wearing them to a New Year's Eve Party.

To Marty at The Easters
The wonderful incomplete set of Encyclopedia Brittanica.

Marty just bought a house and doesn't have lot of spare cash for presents.
His brother is graduating from high school and would LOVE these as a gift!
And you know what?
It wasn't even ON the list of possible gifts........
but once again, because it is the season of giving,
I will go down to my freezer and give him one of my 24 pounds of butter.
He gets the Sam's Club brand because it is awful for baking.

To Valerie at Let's Be Frank (a private blog)
I bestow the Kabob-It.

She may keep it OR give it away to a deserving relative IF they promise to invite her to their Kabob Party!
Oh..........and I have to be invited to!  It's all a part of my unconditional gift giving.

To Andrea at Blogging Mama
Okay, she didn't even enter, but her Blackberry is her ONLY phone.
It is the only way ANYONE can get a hold of her.
So I will gift her the box of broken CELL PHONES!

No one can have to many.
And besides, her sister, Valerie (above) will be calling her soon to let her know that she is sending her a Kabob- It.
I don't want her to miss the call.

To Margaret at Facts from a Fact Woman,
I will not gift the Springform Pan BOTTOM
because she sounds like she will seriously use it.

And to Diane at "Life's a Pitch"
She was too bashful to ask, but I KNOW she wants it...........
the leopard print THONG.

Also, to H.K. Everyday, who could not believe that anyonewould donate lingerie to a Boy Scout Garage Sale,I will give the entire shoe box of panties and bras that someone donated.
They were teeny tiny, so A LOT could be shoved into that small box.

I love you all: winners and losers alike!
Thanks for playing!

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

YES! I didn't even enter and I WON! Wahoo!

Thanks for the broken cell phone, it's just what I wanted :)

Melissa said...

To clarify, I did NOT want the empty cd cases. And now I wish I didn't know what the lyrics to "Come On, Eileen" are. I'm pretty sure the people who ran the dances at BYU didn't know what they were, either, or I'm sure they wouldn't have played it.

WAHOOOEEE! The kabob it. Love it! I hope it can get to Andrea before Christmas! I better try calling her on that cell phone she won to make sure she keeps a eye out for it. Thanks Gina! Your the best!

Gina, wow thanks, I really am too shy to ever ask for a gift, you know me too well. And, you gave me something I would never buy for myself (at a yard sale)....(or anywhere) thanks for your thoughtfulness!
