Today I ate Chinese again. We all know what that means. It means I got another fortune cookie.
Anyone who is anyone knows that I am a firm believer in fortune cookies (especially with the added ending) and ancient Chinese secrets.
The last time I ate Chinese--10 days ago--this was my fortune:
This was my fortune today:
I think it's sweet how the ancient Chinese know each of us individually, so to show my appreciation and gratitude I decided to be obedient unto their will and write that letter. I was going to write to Santa and tell him that I wanted a new job for Christmas, but I decided to go straight to the source:
Dear SAM-e Good Mood Blog Judges,
Mahalo in advance for your careful and thoughtful and deliberate and conscientious consideration to quite possibly, and very likely, award me the great honor of being your next Good Mood Blogger. As Gad as my witness, I pinky promise not to let you, or the world at large, down.
P.S. Your honorable judges, instead of writing me back, would you mind slipping $1 into an envelope and sending it to Matthew Blanchard at 8444 Brody Marsh Ave/Las Vegas, NV/89143? He is a very sick 12-year-old boy who needs a good mood something fierce. Today he received five envelopes containing $1 bills and it put a smile on his face. Tomorrow let's hope he receives ten envelopes!
THANK YOU for your help!
And now for a few apologies:
1. I posted Matthew Blanchard's house number without the 8 in an earlier post. DARNIT! It's 8444 Brody Marsh Ave. I'm thinking the mailman will be able to figure it out though because how many Blanchards live on Brody Marsh Ave? Thank goodness I did post the address correctly on Facebook and on my Magic Quilt blog. PHEW!
2. I made Dolly look like George W. when I posted her entry into my Why Would DEB-e Make the Best Good Mood Blogger contest. Her comment doesn't make sense out of context. It doesn't make sense in context either, (unless you know that Sean, the winner of my video contest, is her son and he followed us around for hours filming our every move). But anyways here's her comment in it's entirety:
I got to see some of that footage and it was so funny!! I can't wait 'til he gets the video made so you can see how GREAT you look and SOUND in real life. In fact, I think I missed out on my directorial debut opportunity with TLC. I should have had my son filming you for the past two months while trying to win this contest. I could have pitched this mini series as the next hit reality show.
The pitch would have been: The Amazing Race-- From Crash Test Dummy to Good Mood Blogger. Tune in to find out if dummies really do have feelings.
If the Sam E judges can't see the obvious choice-- (material and writing that is so original and totally relates to the people who really need to be be in good moods)... then at least you would have become a celebrity on TLC and you would have gotten to do the vote for Debbie all over again on Dancing with the Stars!
You would make Bristol Palin look like a klutz. Oh wait, Bristol Palin already did that. : )
Okay, one last thing. Congratulations to Barbaloot for winning the cute visiting teaching message/giftie thingies. Barb, I'm going to be in your neck of the woods tomorrow. Where can I meet you?
As for today's MAHALO-for-supporting-me-through-my-voting-ordeal giveaway, it's really coooool. If you're into scrapbooking. It was donated by my very talented sis-in-law, Jennifer, who is a scrapbooking wiz. She wants me to win so badly she has donated at least two dozen 12 x 12 one-of-a-kind ready made scrapbook pages and kits.
If you would like to win this lovely, super expensive prize, just leave a comment telling me you sent a magic dollar to Matthew. (And don't take refuge in a lie.) That's one entry. If you blog or tweet or Facebook about the magic dollar drive then you get more entries.
MAHALO to all and to all a good night!
