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.
Sometimes? I'm Judgmental. Also, Seattle!
