Well, the Arte y Pico and Proximade awards seem to have run their course. For now.
In addition to those auspicious prizes, I’ve received lots of cool stuff from my fellow bloggers over the years.
You can’t see them, but there were red velvet CUPPA-CAKES in there! Sadly, there were also cherries. I don’t drink much, but I made an exception in this case. So, a big, drunken thanks to Tim and Ernie!
LOOK! It’s a lifelike (heh–I almost wrote “lifeSIZE”) Xena doll!
Xena will not judge you. But I will.
This awesome item came from Meg at Prefers Her Fantasy Life. She ran a caption contest and I freaking won. Since the caption had to do with Fonzie, Michael Jackson, and Sonny Bono, it should come as no surprise that I cleaned up, caption-wise.
No, you’re not seeing things. That is a GREEK Spongebob Squarepants comic book, direct from Greekland. Also known as Greece.
With real Greek coins! I haven’t tried to use them yet. I’m sure they’re worth MILLIONS!
I received this coin-laden comic AND a cool magnet and shot glass from none other than your favorite Greek and mine: Canucklehead! OK, he’s not Greek, but his lovely wife is, and while visiting her family in Greece, C-head gathered together this fun-filled prize package for the winner of his contest, which I can’t find now. Happy Greaster!
OMG! It’s my Jerry Springer not-at-all-crappy bottle opener! You can tell it’s genuine by the logo. Right? Anyway, all I had to do to win this sweet prize was tell Anne of Small Town Mommy that I really wanted it. AND I DID! The finger puppet is on hand to show you how small . . . er, big it is. Thanks again, Anne. And thanks for going to the Jerry Springer show so I don’t have to.
Feast your eyes on these beauties! Three (3) highly desirable magnets from Junk Drawer Kathy, Babs Beetle, and Maureen from I’d Rather Be Blogging. Uh, I can’t really remember how or why I won these, but I DID and if you try to take them away from me, I will bite you.
Ah, but look carefully, Junk Drawer fans. If you’ve been lucky enough to win one of Kathy’s magnets, you’ll notice that this one is different.
That’s right! Blurriness aside, I received the PROTOTYPE for the current Junk Drawer magnet. What do you think of THAT?!
And now, because I went to the trouble of uploading these photos, here’s some other stuff.
Zombie Mardi Gras Alligator Head (it’s a magnet)!
Blurry camel figurine STRAIGHT from Turkey (featuring Daisy the Curly Cat)!
Frog sponge holder that my mother-in-law let me take withOUT approval from the other daughters-in-law!
What’s the best prize you’ve ever received?
