The Biggest One Day Contest EVER

So, it is nearly the last day of the month. That means it is your last chance to get your click on and help contribute to the Flight 93 Memorial Fund. I was just going to let the month fade into the sunset and be very happy with the money that has been raised so far, but after a few discussions here and there, I decided NAH! Let's go out with a bang!

I checked with a few friends and we have managed to assemble the Contest of The Century. Oh, yes. There is not just one prize to be won, there are many. There won't be just one winner, there will be many. Here are the prizes that are up for grabs:

A $25 iTunes gift card, courtesy of someone who asked not to be named. Woohoo for a friendly sort of anonymous blog person!

3 DVDs and a CD of wrestling and hip hop goodness from those crazy guys over at the Wrestling Mayhem Show.

A $15 Starbucks gift card courtesy of my favorite big booty havin' Texan, Anglophile Football Fanatic.

A kick-ass t-shirt from Wear Pittsburgh, courtesy of everybody's favorite Butler, Woy.

Your choice of any Just the Essentials case from Rocking Pony's Etsy shop. There are tons of cute ones to choose from, but I like this one.

Karen is super-generous, so she is also offering up your choice of any baby blanket from the Rocking Pony Etsy shop. I would pick this one because the colors are fantastic.

A messenger bag filled with cosmetics from Clumber Kim. I hear there is a lot of Allure recommended stuff in there, so it's got to be good.

Emma in Canada has offered up some hand-crafted Stampin' Up! cards, perfect for Thanksgiving or just general Fall use. If you don't celebrate, uh, Fall, she's got a few others to choose from as well.

A Stanley Theater prize package including the Grateful Dead's 1979 show and Marley's last show in 1981 from my favorite Donato's delivering Uncle, Unclecrappy.

A permanent artist's account from EBSQ, courtesy of Amie, valued at $650. Incredible!

A pair of highly-coveted tickets to Brewfest 2008, sponsored by the Pittsburgh Rugby Football Club. That right there is a guaranteed good time, if you can be in Pittsburgh on November 14th.

TheJim from Sportsocracy has offered up an ultra-spiffy Sportsocracy t-shirt. You can wear it in honor of the fact that I am totally going to win the Pittsburgh Celebrity Bloggers Fantasy Football League. Or at least Week One.

A copy of Sleep is for the Weak, an anthology of great blogging by several of my favorite bloggers. Thanks to ImposterMom, I happen to have an extra copy laying around. (Squee!)

A $15 gift card to Ruggers Pub. Check out the menu and you'll instantly be hungry. Mmmm . . . fried zucchini . . .

A copy of Lenny Kravitz' CD "It's Time for a Love Revolution" courtesy of Dawnmski of Yes, This is How My Mind Works.

A Tim Horton's package straight from the motherland. It includes a tin of Tim Horton's coffee, Second Cup tea bags, and Second Cup white hot chocolate. This one is also from the EXTREMELY generous Emma in Canada. I just wish she could send me a Timmy's store for my backyard.

All you have to do to win one of these fabulous prizes is to leave a comment on this post no later than 11:59pm Eastern Time on September 30, 2008 telling me which prize you want to win. If you can't decide which prize you want, that's OK, too. Just enter again. In fact, you can enter to win just as many times as your little fingers will let you. I'll throw all the comments into their respective hats and have the Toddler draw the winners. If you REALLY want to win, link to this post and I'll throw your name in the hat an extra five times. If you REALLY REALLY want to win, link to my 9/11 post and I'll throw your name in the hat TEN TIMES.

Winners will be announced on October 2nd at 10:00 pm Eastern Time.

Some not-so fine print:

* You don't have to be a blogger to win, but you do have to be willing to provide a valid email address and physical address if your name is drawn.

* You can leave an anonymous comment, but please make sure to put a name in your comment so I can tell y'all apart.

* Bloggers who have already linked to the 9/11 post are automatically entered ten times, but you'll need to enter again on this post so that I know which prize you covet most.

* I'll be connecting winners with the person that has donated the prize. I am not personally in possession of the prizes, but will facilitate to make sure they are delivered.

* I may still be adding prizes through the day. Keep checking back.

* The super-incredible people who donated ARE eligible to win, but they can't win their own prize.

What are you waiting for? Click, link, and comment away!

I linked the 9/11 post in my blog.

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterRukian

And, I could never live with addicted myself if I didn't put in a grab for the Starbucks card. That AFF knows how to up the ante!

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

I'm pretty sure that I need that book, Sleep Is For The Weak.

Oh, and I linked to your 9/11 site early on in the month. Need the blogpost or are you good?

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

btw...love your blog. I'm a Pittsburgher living in NY, but about to return to the burgh and your blog makes me want to come home even more, and go on a Just Ducky cruise. :)

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterLauren

Wow this is one dang spiffy contest! I've spread the word around to some friends to check ya out n'at.

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterspoon

And one more because these are the best gifts ever - I've been coveting a Pittsburgh Wear shirt forever and ever. Would it be weird since I'm not actually from the Burgh?

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

And because I haven't filled up your comments enough, I've put up a post directing people here. I laid the guilt on and said to just be an American already. ;)

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

I'm all for the baby blanket. I've linked to you. Does it help that I spent quality time clicking on all your archives to up your click count?

(note, I almost typed clit count. That's a whole other subject.)

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered Commenternikki

I love winning things. And I think the Kick Ass Pittsburgh T-shirt would ROCK!!!

A permanent artist's account from EBSQ, courtesy of Amie, valued at $650. Incredible! It would make a great Christmas gift for my artist daughter.

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSgtSudsWife

I would also like to mention that since I am a Starbucks junkie I would like that giftcard too but The Grateful Dead and Marley shows are my #1 coveted item.

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSgtSudsWife

Sorry, SgtSudsWife - you're not the only one. Count me in for the Stanley prize, too.

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterGina

Did I mention the ITunes gift card?Most imprtantly did I forget to mention that I am a serious DeadHead and might not be able to sleep until after I find out if I win the shows.

Ok I think I am done now LOL.All this excitement this early I think is making me a little crazy.

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSgtSudsWife

Dang, you know people! Good people, apparently! I want the artist thing from EBSQ.

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJen

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterElisa

This is so awesome! You have a huge amount of stuff your giving away. I love the baby blankets! I have a friend who is newly pregnated and I might could give it to her. Or just keep it for myself and any future grandbabies that better not get here for several years. :)

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterValarie

Oh, and maybe, just maybe the $25 iTunes gift card, so I can hang on to the illusion that I am cool and keep up with the latest, and load it on my iPod :-)

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterElisa

Oh, and I did click on the ads again. Just so you don't think I am a total egoist if I say that a messenger bag filled with cosmetics from Clumber Kim woulnd't be bad, either :-)

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterElisa

Definately the EBSQ prize...or the Starbucks gift card.

BTW, I read your 9/11 post and it inspired me to write one of my own - something I had avoided until then. Thank you for making me remember.

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKendra

Wow, so many comments! Love your blog. I love to blog about our little Burgh Boy, if I could only find more time!

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

I linked here from my blog AND linked to the 9/11 post. just so you know.

also, starbucks please

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterImpostorMom

So, I just pimped out (for lack of a better word), the little click-a-thon again on both my blog and Twitter 'cause I hope things amp up. We'll see.

And, if I were to win, I'm gunning for the Starbucks card. Liquid crack is always nice. (Though some of those YT folks did sweeten the pot pretty well).


"Panera Girl"

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJenn

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterImpostorMom

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterImpostorMom

I just knew I wasn't the only Grateful Dead fan out there.

I would also love the book Sleep Is For The Weak.I love to read and I agree with the title.I would much rather stay up and be sleep deprived so I can read and comment on blogs.

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSgtSudsWife

There's a Tim Horton's in Erie (actually there's 2) if you ever get up there!

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAmber
