Humiliation With a Side of Awesome

As promised, video #3. Here I reveal some of my lesser-known talents. What are they? You'll have to watch to find out! *cue evil laughter*

(For those who don't know, Leigh Moore and I were doing a 30K in 30 days challenge, and the pennance for missing a day was posting a Hacky Sack Club video.)

Oh! The subterfuge of it all!! Sneaky little beggar.

Despite appearances, the side of awesome I mentioned is not my son (though even I have to admit it was pretty funny). The side of awesome is that I am giving away a boatload of books!

Since we are moving, I'm trying to clear off my shelves. Rather than give my precious books to just anyone, I thought I would offer them up to my lovely followers. Unfortunately, and I hate to do it, but since there are so many, I just don't think I can afford the international postage on that many items, I'm going to have to limit it to US/Canada.

Okay, but now I feel too bad, soooo, I will draw the name of one international commenter and send them a book. So here are the rules:
  1. You must be a follower.
  2. Leave a comment with your e-mail and please mention if you are international or US/Canada.
  3. For international participants, you have until May 29th to enter, and hopefully I'll have the winners posted by Thursday.
  4. For the rest of you, the contest is on-going until the books are gone and I announce the end. I'll start picking winners at random very soon. Tomorrow maybe? Don't you just love the randomness of it all?
No extra entries for tweeting or passing on the word, but I would love it if you did!

There will be as many winners as I have books to give away (which is a lot), and as a thanks to pay it forward (NTM, you're the best!), one lucky random person will also win a $10 Starbucks card (I don't drink coffee, so when my husband won it at work, I knew just what to do with it!).

Please note, the books are used (read at least once), but they are all in very good shape, and most are pretty recent. Most.

And since it will be a media mailer, there won't be a warm, fuzzy note with it, but know it's there in spirit.

Love you guys! Thanks for reading my posts, and laughing at my crazy videos (you DID laugh, didn't you?!!!). Thanks for your support and for generally keeping me sane in this Wonderland World we call Publishing.

Yep, I giggled at the video! Your son is just too funny. : )

What a cool thing, passing on all the books you can't take with you.

I'm in the US.

You are the cutest! I cannot wiggle my ears, nor can I make my tongue into a flower. But I can roll my tongue. My oldest daughter can do the flower, but no one else in our family can. I guess she inherited that talent from her birth parents. :)

And how nice of you to have a giveaway. I'm in the US! a2sonnichsen (at) gmail (dot) com. :)

When are you moving? I hope it goes well! Are you moving near me? ha ha! Wouldn't that be AWESOME? :)

Yes, your videos DID make me laugh, Janet! Thanks for the giveaway - my addy is sb424(at)yahoo(dot)com, and I'm in Canada.

All the best for your move!

That's such a cute video. :) I love the last comment he made! LOL.

Beth said...

Randomness is always awesome! And what a great giveaway! I'm Canadian, by the way.

Good luck with that move!

We were supposed to laugh? Oh. Okay. I will wipe the look of extreme bewilderment off my face and bestow a hearty chuckle in your general direction.

Another fun video. I like that you keep them short. Too often people post a five minute video and with my short attention span I usually turn it off.

*crosses fingers* ;)

Awesome video! You have an entire career ahead of you in film (although I have to say the hair dryer video might be my favorite so far :)) I have a lot of books - A LOT! - but if i should happen to win one, I'd be happy to have it if i don't already! :)

omg--LOL!!! your son's tricks are wiggling his eyes and making great bunny ears. *snort* :D

Yay for paying it forward and free books! You rule. These videos are too much fun. Makes me want to do another challenge... ;p <3 xoxo
