Happy New Year’s Eve! Although I also feel as if New Year’s Eve is no big deal. Seeing as how I am old and all. We’re having some friends over for dinner and there are absolutely NO EXPECTATIONS for a crazy night. I think New Year’s is usually a let down and I find myself wearing uncomfortable clothes and wishing that I was at home in my pajamas, contacts out, glasses on, and possibly a chick flick on in the background. Okay, I find myself feeling that way when I am teaching at school, too.
Well, over the course of yesterday’s copyright laws and violations (of which I must be guilty of several), I apparently reached 1000 followers.
I can’t believe it. Really. Let’s see here.
If I add this with that and then subtract my family members . . . um . . . carry the one . . . no, that’s not right . . . erase that . . . and then if I divide that by . . . or do I multiply . . . and then add the one over to the . . .
I’ve been teaching first grade for fifteen years. I only remember how to do first grade math and we never ever get to the thousands. See my dilemma?
But I just can’t believe it.
I am in shock. I started this blog over the summer because of all the blogs I read and loved and stalked and obsessed over. I had no idea where it would take me. I am so thankful for each and every one of you.
I wish I could offer an Amazon gift card to EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU but I’m not sure a five cent gift card is available. Let me check.
Nope. 🙁 I wonder why not?
What I thought I would do is offer THREE (3) Uno, dos, tres, digital gift cards to Amazon in the amount of $10 each. I know it’s not heart stopping or gasp worthy, but let’s just pretend.
“Wow!” they all gasped.
“Insane!” they all agreed.
Here’s how to enter. I like things to be easy.
1. Leave a comment that you’re following me. And again, if you already are, you can tell me to back off or get a life or get out of my pajamas, already! (and leave your email in case you win!)
2. Blog about this giveaway. This is my least favorite. But there you
3. Tell me the best New Year’s Eve you’ve ever had so I can try to copy it for next year.
That’s it. I’ll use the random number generator thingy to choose THREE (3) uno, dos, tres winners. Let’s close this up by Sunday night, January 1, midnight Pacific time. I’ll announce the winners on Monday morning.
Here’s what happened on our Malibu trip. It was 55 degrees when we got there and gray and foggy! We couldn’t even see the beach! We drove up and down and I used the restroom in a Jack in the Box. I know – I can make all things exciting. Then we drove up Topanga Canyon – which is just a road. There’s nothing to see. Don’t do it After about twenty minutes, we turned around and came back down. So we went to Santa Monica and walked around the pier (interesting people but no celebrities). Then we drove to Venice and ate at Gloria’s Cafe which was featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives. DELICIOUS! We think we saw Gloria but we couldn’t be sure. And we walked around Venice and had people trying to accost us and make us listen to their music. Huh?
It was a nice way to spend time with the hubby but we were both disappointed by the weather. I don’t know why. It is December, after all.
