The Contest!

Dear Internet,

I bet you want a shiny, (for all intents & purposes) brand-new, Braun Multipractic immersion blender with the wall mount, chopper thingy, and beaker, don't you?

Well, here's your chance.

Enter this contest and, duh, win it. Before we proceed, here are the rules:

Post in the comments section you are participating.
Post the answers in YOUR blog. (Don't post them in the combox, thou shalt be disqualified.)

The person with the most right answers wins, in case of a tie, the lurker-iest person (this being meant to turn lurkers into commenters).

To business:
  1. What is the best brand of products to preserve leather?
  2. My alcohoroscope shows me to be what sign?
  3. What do I like to drink in those teeny tiny Petrossian glasses and what do I enjoy eating as an accompaniment?
  4. What's my Myers-Briggs personality type?
  5. What do I use to clean the burners of the porn grill?
  6. How long did I actually have (in the physical sense) the car that sucked?
  7. What Rat Packer am I?
  8. What, in my opinion, is the worst part of living in SoFla?
  9. Who is the artist being honored (in absentia) at JokeFest2006?
  10. How many "tuxedo-able" bow ties do I own?
  11. What is my most heretical recipe?
  12. What is the title of the first book I recommended on this blog?
  13. Do I consider myself a metrosexual and why or why not?
  14. How many turkeys did I grill for Thanksgiving 2005?
  15. What did I spend 1/1/05 doing?
  16. What scary thing did my 8 year old ask Santa for?
  17. What's wrong with MOST organic milk these days?
  18. What airline couldn't get us from "here to there"
  19. What do I call the day in which Poppy and self became pals?
  20. What is my medical directive to my wife/children?
  21. What holiday was the subject of a LONG and hilarious blog entry that, sadly, Blogger ate?
  22. How did I describe the ::cough, cough:: Cupid garden statue TFBIM got? (BONUS! What happened to that statue?)
  23. Which relative vexes me telephonically the most?
  24. How many times has an Italian car left me stranded?
  25. What did I consider (at the time) to be better than sex?
That's it!

    You are insane, but you knew that already.

    what's the prize for making up the best answers?
  • Blogger blackbird posted at 6:59 PM, March 02, 2006  
    I am going to try this -
    and I am going to do it without trawling...
    but I am not going to be able to post until sunday at the earliest - and no one reads blogs on sunday, so maybe tuesday, cause I already have a post for monday, unless something really really good happens on monday and then I would have to post THAT on tuesday, or if I do a two day post-wedding post. fortunately I have already announced show and tell for next week, so I don't have to worry about squeezing that in too - although...

    the combox?

    It's where communists like us like to box ourselves in, I'm thinking. He meant to say the commie box. That's why he's obsessed with the fact that my shoes are red (THEY'RE PINK!).

    Making up the best answers gets you an Italian cookbook which I have yet to select.

  • Blogger blackbird posted at 6:33 AM, March 03, 2006  

    as the proud owner of a braun stick blender aveck acoutreemants (and yes it would be difficult to find the thing for wall mounting I think) this is a tempting offer...
    but, as I looked over the questions last night, I realized that some of the answers I know are funny enough!
    I will only make up some.

    word verif? just below the combox?

    which must be the first brokeback word verif. which is just SO last month.
  • Blogger Sarah Louise posted at 8:15 AM, March 03, 2006  
    Yeah, I think I'll work on making up answers. Reading your archives is fun but it will take a while. And I do not have an Italian cookbook. (I know, the shame of it all, and now the Internet knows too.)

    I can't wait to see the answers. What's a porn grill?
  • Blogger Joke posted at 5:55 PM, March 03, 2006  
    The answer to that Carolyn, is found by rummaging through teh vast glory that is my blog's archives.

    As a poor plebeian on dial-up internet, I have no hope of searching for all these answers.

    But I think I deserve a Polish cookbook for spelling plebeian without the aid of a dictionary.

    When does the contest end?
    I need to drug the children and farm out my husband with some of his favorite eighties tv shows so I have some uninterrupted computer time...
  • Blogger Joke posted at 1:19 PM, March 05, 2006  
    The contest shall Patrick's Day. Howzat sound?


    P.S. I have not yet purchased a Polish cookbook.
  • Blogger daysgoby posted at 4:17 PM, March 05, 2006  
    The blarney shall flow freely before St. Patrick's Day.

    Zat sounds perfick.
  • Blogger Poppy Buxom posted at 11:32 AM, March 07, 2006  
    I have officially entered the contest. I guess this means I have until St. Patrick's Day to tweak my answers, right? Because frankly, I think my entry still needs work. Some of the answers might still be accurate.
