I'm So Sorry, But It's Been Cancelled Due to Unforeseen Events

To: Everyone

From: Jane via Michel

Subject: Gaston Studios Regrets to Inform You...

I know how you all have been really excited about Jane at Gaston Studios' 100 post giveaway thingie...where you answer some questions (that totally would have been too hard for you guys to answer anyway) and then potentially win some really big prize that you wouldn't even really want unless you were living in Sudan. Well, I have some really bad news (and Jane was too sad to tell you guys, so she asked me to send out a memo.)

The contest has been cancelled.

I know, I know, she was supposed to do the "big reveal" on Monday the 24th, but she told me that she decided not to do it because you guys were all big losers anyway and I would have won no matter what. After that, it just really seemed cruel to do to you all and also (frankly) too much effort to go through the whole 100th post thing.

Naturally, (because I'm saintly) I protested that even though I was a follower of hers back in the day - when she had barely 30 followers - that perhaps it was not fair to cancel it like this, and that others should maybe still deserve a chance to win - even though the questions would be waaaay too hard.

But I simply couldn't budge her.

If you knew Jane (like obviously I know Jane) you would know that she is stubborn and gets drunk and falls down and knocks her teeth out in bathrooms. Believe me, I'm really close friends with toilet brush and rug who were none too pleased to have her laying in there just spewing teeth around like she lived there. *awkward*

Anyway, I'm really sorry Blognut. I do know that this contest was important to you and that you were really looking forward to winning something. It really is such a shame.

However, because I'm such a true friend to you - and because (as I mentioned before) I've been called "selfless" and "such a dear girl, so sweet to others in their time of need" (No really, someone said that once. It was not actually about ME, but still. They said it when I was around!) I have decided to pass on this award that I was recently given by Mad Aunt Bernard and she writes Tortoise poetry (no, I'm not sure why, but it is funny - but if it is not supposed to be - that's probably because I never did "get" poetry!) Anyway, she's British, and I kinda can't understand what she is saying most of the time, but I'm sure it was complimentary!!

Anyway, I don't actually remember the rules - something about passing it on to others (chaa! As if!) and then linking back to who gave it to you - but I mean who can really be sure where, I mean...do we have to really check to see if she REALLY gave it to me?? I am almost positive she would have wanted me to have it..... Are we really still at that stage where we need to confirm the information that I tell you??

Can't we all just get along???

Anyway, in order to help you in this time for grief for you Blognut, I hereby bequeath you the below award. I hope it will help you get over your loss of the major giveaway - that was cancelled.



My God I really am SUCH a good person. It's amazing sometimes isn't it? I often wonder how it is that I didn't end up working in some peace corps type position. But then I remember that I don't like nature to touch me or to actually have to talk directly TO people.

It's better this way.

So once again, don't even bother going to visit Jane's blog on Monday the 24th. There is no need. Sure, it may LOOK like she posted something, but it's just her 100th post - no need to even read it. I'll let you know immediately should she change her mind.

Best regards,
Michel

Oh well....*walks away with head down*

Gaston Studio said...

OMG Michel! I can't believe you're misleading people like this just to cut down on the number of entrants for my giveaway... which is absolutely going to be the BEST, MOST FUN GIVEAWAY in the history of blogland.

Now you go apologize to Blognut and everyone else!

lakeviewer said...

That's o.k. Michel. You don't have to help us at all. We're in a civilized world, after all; we don't need to crowd each other, or tote our guns to these parties.Thanks, though. We can count on you.

blognut said...

OMG! You are too much! Thank you for giving me such a lovely award to help ease my pain.

Here I was thinking that you were only thinking of yourself, but I was wrong. You were thinking of me. :) I am eternally grateful!

blognut said...

I should tell you that I just had a nice conversation with Jane, and I'll be blogging about it tomorrow.

You're in big trouble, missy!

Gaston Studio said...

Yeah! BIG trouble!

Mango Girl said...

Are you vying for saint hood?

darsden said...

I laughed so hard I think I just pee'd my pants.
Damn.

otin said...

Geez, Michel, I thought that your blog was being cancelled at first! I was going to cry!

blognut said...

I repeat! BIG TROUBLE, MISSY!

Beth said...

Sounds like you are going to be sitting in the Sugar Seat until you get "sweet" again.

Hit 40 said...

Great post!! I loved your tidbit about her falling down drunk. Good find from her past posts. Between you and blognut...

this is the first blog giveaway that I am actually going to follow to see who wins.

bernthis said...

um okay. Why do I feel really stupid all of a sudden?

Pastor Sharon said...

wa WA, wa WA, Wa WA! (in case you need interpretation, that's Charlie Brown's school teacher!)

I cannot even believe you would mislead a precious soul like Blognut and all these other wonderful people!

You do know if I were a Bible Thumper, there is a passage in the Bible about wolves in sheeps clothing, misleading people like this!

Do you know what happens, when they place "gifts" in front of the poor sheep, in order to be DECEITFUL?
Well, I'm not going to tell you because I'm not a Bible Thumper!

Anywho, that gift at JANE's Blog is already at my house and it is lovely!

So, my dear Nubian Princess from Sudan, take that!

No, wait. . . . there it goes again, that alter ego of mine.

What I really meant to say was, "Oh that was so kind of you to present Blognut with such a nice award.

Suzy said...

Can SOMEBODY please make a widget that says NO DRINKING WHILE BLOGGING with a red line across it and give it to Michel?

Or all of us?

A Mom on Spin said...

I am now your 125th follower! Now go thank BlogNut again!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Oh good, Monday's going to be a busy day for me, so I probably wouldn't have had time to enter anyway. HA! As if! ;)

blognut said...

And so, because you are all about being the center of attention in spite of the number of times I have had to remind you that is really is all about me, you are the topic of today's post over at Blognut Manor.

And you?

Have a lot of explaining to do.

Middle Aged Woman said...

My goodness, Michel, you are so...selfless. And so...kind. And such....a BIG LIAR! I know. I went there. And I'm really smart, so I can answer 100 questions, easy! So there.
P.S. I 'll send you a picture of MY prize.

She said...

You are toooo funny! First time here. Blognut sent me because she said you are funny. Even after how you've lied to her and all, she said I should check you out, that I'd like you. She's nice like that! ;-)

Seriously, you are funny and way cool, and the two of you had me LMAO tonight!
