Ice-Cream Eating Celebration Contest!

Holy Cow, has it really been a MONTH since I posted?! Unbelievable. So I stayed busy doing this:

And this:

Not to mention THIS:


And while I didn't really think ya'll would be stagnant while I was gone, all kinds of good things happened:

One of our very own members of the HackySack Club, MelissaSarno, just SIGNED WITH AN AGENT!!, so head on over to her blog and read about it!

Note: New members to the Hacky Sack Club are always welcome and we DO seem to have some good mojo going. Just saying.

Also, my Hacky Sack Club partner in crime, Amy Sonnichsen's Fablulous CP, Krista VanDolzer [of Mother.Write. (Repeat.)] announced theBOOK DEAL she just signed!!

And JessieHumphries, from my NaNoRevMo group, announced herawesome TWO-BOOK DEAL with Amazon.

Anyhoo . . . so much good stuff going on for our friends that Amy and I couldn't just let it slide. We are holding a Celebration Contest!

And since all good celebrations need ice-cream, we are having an Ice-Cream Eating Celebration Contest! Woo hoo!

So here's how it works:

Amy and I are going to battle it out to see who can eat the most ice-cream in 20 seconds. Too easy, you say? Our 9-year olds are going to be the ones stuffing the ice-cream in. Still too easy? Another child will hold our hands behind our backs to keep us from cheating. 

And you'll get to see the whole thing on video!! How cool is that?!

BUT, it gets better. There will be PRIZES!!

All you have to do is guess who will win. Me? (uh, yeah). Or Amy?

Everyone who guesses right (on either blog) will be entered into a drawing for your choice of

a)       a 10-page critique from BOTH Amy and I,


b)      Surprise Package D (gosh I love me a surprise package). Could be a book. Or two. Or a gift card. Or, who knows? Maybe even A BRAND NEW HACKY SACK! Heehee.

Just post your guess in a comment before Sunday, May 12, midnight EDT, and come back next Monday, May 13th, for the ice-cream eating event! Winners will be posted shortly thereafter.

So go on, take a guess! But just know . . . this is me, Toughest, Ice-cream eating-est, Brain-freezing-est contestant around! Just saying.

Me and the cats vote for you lovely Janet! No contest!! (Sorry lovely Amy - of course you are super awesome too but there's that extra ice creamy twinkle in Janet's eye....!!!!). :-)

p.s. Huge congrats to your fellow Hacky Sack members for their writerly successes!

Take care

What a great contest idea! I can't wait to see the video. That is an impressive freezer shot look poised to win this!

Faith E. Hough said...

Wait a second...are you sure this is a contest and not an excuse? I would definitely use it as an excuse. :)
Still, I think I'd have to vote for Amy. It's that innocent smile that probably belies much ice-cream-eating mischief. ;)

Melissa Sarno said...

Oh my gosh! I can not possibly choose between the two of you. Amy has powers of launching ice cream across time and space. You are willing to brave peanut butter sauce and she's too weak to do so. You both have ridiculously adorable children and I can't wait to watch them spoon-feed you. This is an impossible choice. I will watch this play out with glee.

And thank you for the shout-out : )

You can't know how much joy it brings me that all this good news for everyone would inspire an ICE CREAM party. Ice cream is best.

Jessie Humphries said...

I choose you! I just want to participate! Ben & Jerry's please! And thanks for the shout out! This really is an amazing community! You are rad, girl. :)

Rebecca said...

London will scoop that ice cream in so fast you won't know what hit ya!!! I I think you will win!!!

Taffy said...

Hahahahaha! Best. Contest. Ever.
Good luck and I choose you!

LTM said...

LOLOL!!!! omg--if I could do this, I would eat you BOTH under the table.

Alas, milk allergy has ended my ice cream eating career. :P

That's some awesome news for everybody! SO glad they're all doing so well.

Hope you're doing FAB too, my friend~ <3

Theresa Milstein said...

Best of luck! I'm on your blog, so I'll choose you!

YaY for Melissa! I know her. :)

A.L. Sonnichsen said...

Okay, now I understand why I'm losing votes because of your picture. You rock, girl! I mean, you SUCK! You are going down!! You think THAT'S a big mouthful? Well, you ain't seen nuthin' yet. Dum dum. No no no baby you just ain't seen nuthin' yet. Dum dum. No no no no baby you just ain't seen nuthin' yet.... Need I say more?
