AND Another lucky winner will receive this:

(dish not included)
(go here for a detailed listing of this loot)

This is the minimum in each Booty Pkg.

Odds are we will add bits to each one.

I just have no self control. (Me either said Rosemary)

PLUS: We have about 37 smaller items.

Surprises that will be mailed out at random to entrants.

No way of knowing what will make us send one out. We just will.

We're just full of surprises, aren't we!?!?!?!?! You thought there would only be one grand prize winner. And now for our next trick: The rules. You knew there had to be rules, didn't you!?!?!

Rosemary said...

If it helps any of the ladies posting here - I'll share two offbeat things about me. I would choose a cold Coca Cola over chocolate and I hate having things snug on my neck (like turtlenecks - I'll wear them but they kind of creep me out). Ta da - I'm weird, I know.

Amrita said...

My dear I am entering here and i am a follower, does that count for 3. I think of 2 strange facts about myself....not hard, as I am funny.

1. I like to eat dessert after I have brushed my teeth.

2. I am shortsighted. Once I walked up to a complete stranger in a park, thinking I knew him and saifd Hello. The guy was flabagasted. In India women don 't do that. Man was i embarassed.

Does this count for 10?

Amrita said...

1. My parents are 7th cousins, ew, kissing cousins!

Chat Noir said...

I'm almost too confused to finish this post...too much giggling at the great responses of the people before me. I just happened across this blog but HAVE to follow it now because I love the humour.

Hmmm 2 weird things (hard, maybe everything about me is weird but I dont know it??): well, I only ever wear black, even in summer (but then in Melbourne that's not so weird).... and I only ever have black cats (which means that the kids at the school next door think I'm a witch)(which I'm not).

Off to leave a message on my blog for you. Hope you get lots more visitors...

Kristen H said...

I have a whole blog about my weird side! Let's see, two weird things...

I love peanut butter and banana stuffed french fact, I crave it!

gocanucksgo said...

Hi Ladies! I'm not sure if I have to do everything on your list to get entries or if I can do some and not do others =/ If I was suppose to do all of them than just ignore this message =) So 2 funny facts about me... I talk about cheese a LOT oh and crave =) People have chocolate cravings, I get cheese cravings (althought I do get chocolate cravings too. I wonder what chocolate covered cheese would taste like... or how about cheese coverd chocolate mmmmm). Now for something weird, I usually have to buy more than one of of the same embellishment because i'm scared that if I really like it and I want to buy it again, the store will not stock the product anymore =/ Well there's a little insight into me, probably a bit more than you needed to know but it was fun typing about it =) Keep up the great work ladies and thanks! I also have become a follower =)
