So I write a post all about desperately wanting to win something - anything - and the world listens, snickers, and sends me The Simple Life, season III.
I'm excited about winning, true, but I entered an awful lot of contests for an awful lot of things I wanted. This wasn't one of them.
For the record, I don't know why I entered a contest to win something I didn't want. My only excuse is that my ballot went in during those early, heady days of contesting back in March. I was entering to win anything and everything in sight - simply because I could.
I gave little thought to what I'd do with the beer can dispensing machine, for example. Or the Harley. Or the vibrating leather recliner with speakers in the headrest. But I entered to win them just the same.
In retrospect I suppose I should be thankful that all I won was a DVD set.
This little win has given me the motivation to keep on contesting, but I am resolved to be a wee bit more selective from now on.
In the meantime, The Simple Life DVDs are up for grabs.
