Oh, y’all. I am in the middle of one of those weeks. Every day this week, I’ve been all, “Man, it’s one of those days!” Yesterday morning, for example, began with me accidentally (of course accidentally, sheesh) kneeling in a big dog turd and then tracking it all over the bath mat. Of course I was already dressed in my work clothes at the time so I had to find some new pants to wear and all my clothes were dirty and damn, what an annoying start to the day.
(Regular readers will recall that my handicapped dog has to be helped with his “business” and uses the toilet, hence the presence of the otherwise location-inappropriate dog turd.)
(This is just a rare, gross thing that happened. It normally winds up in the toilet. There is not usually dog poop on my bathroom floor.)
(Look, I don’t even want to talk about it any more, so quit asking questions.)
Another thing that happened, in case that wasn’t nasty enough for you, was that I blew my nose into my sleeve while out on a run. I did this on purpose. Clearly, I need to learn how to do a snot rocket.
To get to the point (what, are you disappointed that I am out of disgusting stories?), I am grouching my way through the week and I would like to cheer myself up. I am in the mood for something nice and fun. What about you? Feel like doing something nice and fun? I thought you might.
Here’s what: a contest! I have some stuff to give away and I will send it to you if you are the winner. I have come into possession of two copies of Veganomicon, the fantastic vegan cookbook by Isa and Terry. I only happen to need one of these copies, so my extra copy can be yours for the taking. Do you want this book? I think you do. It’s a beloved classic in the vegan and vegetarian circles, but I’m sure there are tons of recipes even the staunchest omnivore would appreciate. In fact, I have fed this vegan food to omnivores several times, always with good results. So even if you are not vegetarian, you might want to win this contest.
Even if you already own this book, you still might want to win this contest. For one thing, you could give the book to a friend. For another thing, I’m also going to include some other items, to be determined based on who wins (basically, I will decide what else to include based on what I think you might like).
Want to enter? Just leave a comment here by Monday night, midnight central time. I’ll choose a winner via random number generator and then I’ll contact the winner to arrange shipping the book & other goodies. If you’re stumped on what to say in your comment, you might want to tell me what food you’re craving at the moment (I could really go for an enormous bean burrito, myself. Lots of guacamole, please).
Yes. This will be fun! I’m in a better mood already.
