A Waste...Voting at the Poll...and Internet Dating...

You know what sucks about holding a contest...is when you have to waste a WHOLE post to explain it. Ya know? Totally annoying!!!

Anyway...now we have our FINAL FOUR...which is WAY more exciting then the final four during March Madness...

Just saying...

Those four are:
Week 1-Kenz (A funny yet sad story of heroism and honeymoons)

Week 2-Nan (An embarrassing story of confetti down there!)

Week 3-Shannon (A funny story of Drive Thru windows and Birds chirping!!!)

Week 4-Bonnie (talking about nipples and pipes and everything nice to Brad Pitt!)

Here are what the FOUR are competing for:

They can pick the color they want and get to engrave something on the back! Pretty cool right? :) Now this is a SHUFFLE...not to be confused with a NANO...got it...NO SCREENS on these babies...just something to click on yourself while you listen to your tunes!

Okay...this is how it will go...

On my RIGHT hand side bar there will be a POLL...with each of their names...you just CLICK on the name of the person you want to vote for and VIOLA...it's done!

Now I would appreciate it if you would ONLY vote ONCE...but it's on your honor because I will have no way of monitoring it! You will have until October 31, 2008 to vote...all the way up until MIDNIGHT--MST TIME....wooooooo...Maybe it will be like EBAY and I stay up watching until the last minute to see who comes out the winner? Or maybe I will take a shower, pick my dry boogers, turn off my lights so the Trick or Treaters will know I am SCROOGE of Halloween and nod off to bed?

One never knows!

Okay...the voting starts now...

Kenz, Nan, Shannon, and Bonnie? You might want to get people to come over and vote for you all week...text message your friends and family or pay people off! Whatever you must do...just make sure you mention somewhere in your post how COOL I am...(I wouldn't have to say that if I really WAS cool...but oh well!)

Okay...well...the rest of my friends...that stick with me even when I have to waste a post on explaining DUMB rules about contests...

Will you answer me ONE THING?

If you could meet me in person...Would you? Or what that freak you out? Like internet dating does with some people...although I find it quite romantic...Internet dating that is...not meeting my BBFF's in person!

Just wondering...

Love,

Shelle

I'd meet you in person. You seem pretty cool to me!

Nan said...

If I could meet you in person, would I want to? So "TOTALLY" I would! "I" think you are awesome, and cool and all that, but look who's talking, someone who can't even be sure not to leave a trace of evidence of a potty visit before going into see the doctor! Oh, and I so TOTALLY voted for myself too! Cuz that gizmo is exactly what I want, not one with a screen!

Kristina P. said...

I realized a couple of days ago, that in a 4 week span, I will have had five bloggy meetings with people from my blog.

I love it! I've met some awesome women. I would totally do it.

Tiff said...

Absolutely I would meet you in person!!!!

Nan said...

OK, I posted about the vote and did some sucking up ;) but really, I do think you're awesome!

Grace said...

I voted for Nan having experienced my own confetti issues, I can so relate!

Barbaloot said...

Since you brought it up-then I feel okay by saying I would definitely meet you in person:)

And not to freak you out---but I think I saw your picture on facebook the other day. You wrote on my friend's wall (Jake). Small world!

Shannon said...

Sweet! I just voted for myself... hee hee hee


And would I meet you in person? HECK, YEAH! I think it would be AWE-some!!! We would talk and laugh, people-watch and laugh some more....

Amanda said...

Every time I meet you in person I freak out. : )

Marie said...

Well, I have met you in person already, so that wouldn't freak me out. But if I hadn't met you before it wouldn't freak me out either.

Did you know that I met my husband online? We met/got matched via eHarmony. Pretty wild huh? With me, the hardest part is the actual first meeting, but with him it was magical! Go figure!

Amy AKA Sis, Ames and Hey YOU! said...

I have to admit, I'd love to meet you! LOL, but I might be just a little nervous! I voted for Nan up there, she's the one that led me to your blog, which I am now your newest foollower.... um... follower I mean!

I don't write much on my own blog but I love the escape of my reality and go and read about someone else's life!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

I'd love to meet you in person. Just get your behind out to Connecticut and let's get this thing done!

Kritta22 said...

I totally want to meet you. In fact I told my hubby that if we get stationed somewhere on the east coast, we are gonna try and meet up with you on the way! He called me a blogging freak but that's okay...maybe lunch or dinner or something.

binks said...

I think everyone is lying their little butts off.
People are always nervous when meeting someone new and hoping and praying that this person will really like them.
Am I sounding really pathetic?
Have you not noticed my feverish attempts to win the Shelle prize over at the scary story blog?
I would even let you come experience the hell that I call my house.
(remodeling hell everyone, don't get nervous.)
We all heart you, Shelle, otherwise we wouldn't leave 300 word essays in your comment section.
BTW - Does that pissyouoff? ;)

Candid Carrie said...

DON'T YOU HATE IT WHEN ...

Shelle begs for us to say good things about her?

Alright, I will. Yes, I would totally want to meet you. I am guessing you write like you talk except with your arms flailing.

If you and I would get to talk together In The Real World there would be a good possibility that our arms would get tangled because of all the thrashing while we spoke.

We could get kicked out of some mighty fine places, you and I.

Mary said...

Hi, I voted for Nan, and wasn't sure if you wanted us to leave a comment too. I love the vocab words--nice touch!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Thank you thank you everyone...keep the compliments rolling!!! lol!

No really...I've been thinking about getting together with blog friends and I just wanted to know if that freaked people out or not?

Because if it was TOO freaky...then I didn't want to approach the idea anymore!

So far...nobody has commented that I haven't already wanted to meet...so everythings is on the same track so far! :)

Aubrey said...

Just let me know WHEN & WHERE! I'd meet ya in a heartbeat! I know we'd hit it off. We're both just that cool!

Natalie said...

absolutely!

Angie's Spot said...

I would love to meet you in person! It would be nice to put a voice with the writing and I want to pick your brain about photography.

Kenz said...

Well I guess I have to vote for myself, even though I hate doing that! The things you have to do to WIN! Kenz Rocks!

Funny Farmer said...

Dude I would totally meet you in person and in fact I am totally BUMMED that I was mere MINUTES from your house last weekend and had NO IDEA! Talk about a downer. I keep looking for someone to blame for me not knowing where you live but how could I and since you didn't know I was coming, well.. I guess we'll have to blame Crash.

Pat said...

I would totally meet you. It would be so fun.

Shannon said...

No, I don't think its weird to meet bloggers in person... I've actually done it!

Angie (from Angie's Spot) is one of my good friends; we live in the same town... last month we met Kat from Sunshine & Lemonade and had a blast! In fact, we're all three meeting for lunch again this Saturday!

I think it would be totally awesome to have a mini-blog convention somewhere...

Tyler, Jamie and Addie! said...

My vote is for Kenz!
My vote is for Kenz!
My vote is for Kenz!
Did you get that....

Kat said...

I was instructed to come and vote for Shannon. Check. And to tell you that you are really cool. Check. :-)

And I am all about meeting my bloggy friends. I have met 5 bloggers. does that make me a bloggy whore?

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I hate it when I have to waste a whole post explaining rules too!

And yes, I WOULD meet you in person.

And I gotta go check out your contest.

Mother Goose said...

i can't believe I missed this!

wesley's mom said...

I would LOVE to meet you in real life.

I have to tell you that my husband loved that marathon picture so much that last night, during our family pumpkin carving party, he made everyone come in and look at the computer and he nearly wet himself while our neices almost threw up.

Thanks!

As far as the contest goes, it's looking like it's become a popularity contest instead of which entry is the funniest, cus who hasn't had a dumb teen not know how to make change. I'd rather see it become a random drawing then to see someone win just because they know more people.

Cus honestly the girlthat's ahead, her's is my least fvorite enty, any of the other 3 are better then that one.
