Day 285: The Agony of De'sweet

Today I won a $100 Visa Gift Card in the Somebody's Mother's Chocolate Sauce Contest for my Pumpkin Chocolate Filled Donut Holes

Which brings my 2011 total earnings to:  $12,438.10

I was one of the 6 runners up (barf), so I didn't win the trip to San Diego or the chance to stay at a haunted hotel.  In moments like these it helps me to keep my serenity knowing that it just wasn't supposed to be....slash envisioning that that hotel is totes going up in flames and my life has been spared.  Kiddiiiiing (kinda)
That's just my little Halloween Carrie telekenetic moment popping out.

And we're breathing throuuuuugh the resentmiiiiiint.  Gooooood.  Aaaaaaaaaaaaand we're back. 

I was beat out by some pretty 'sweet' competition.

The winner made apple pie coffins.

Another runner up did a "Stack-O-Lantern"Crepe moment (totes beyond way cute)

Someone else made Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwiches...yumsville.

For mine, and all the other recipes, you can check out their website:

Anyway.....Happy Halloweenskeeeees!
Aaaaaaaand we're gunna breathe the burning hotel fantasy out one more tiiiiiiiiiiime.....
There ya go.....

Since I won't be traveling across the country, I figured I'd enter a contest today to win a Vespa to explore NYC.

Prize:  A Vespa

2011 Total Earnings:  $12,338.10

Today's Contest:  Six Flags Fright Fest Sweepstakes
Prize:  Xbox 360 with Kinect and the Game RISE OF THE NIGHTMARES
How to enter:





I was reeeeeeeally into this Latina last night I saw dressed up as Freddy Krueger.  She was like..."Dohn evun laugh, oh go a'sleep...I'm gunna come fine you in yo dreeeeeemz".
That's a nightmare.
Or amaziiiiiiing!!!!

Sometimes nightmares are the ones that actually happen in my sleep.  Like the one where I'm supposed to go on stage for some show I've never rehearsed and it's opening night.  Balls!!

Other times nightmares are in real life, like the lines at Starbucks.

Or people on their cel phones on the subway.

I think my biggest nightmares are those of a future of unrealized dreams and bad life decisions. To me this looks like being single in a gay retirement village, somewhere in Arizona,  performing in a drag show, and doing a relyriced version of Gaga's "Born this Way"...
(Sung)  Baby I Eat Corn This Wayyyyy....

Steampunk is a motif filled with Victorian Age garments....

Prize:  Trip to LA for Halloween, and sum cash
How to enter:

I need to figure out what I am going to be for Halloweeeeeeeeeeeen!
This contest made me consider going the Willy Wonka route.   Maybe I could dress up as one of those characters....but which?  I find Halloween to be a time where we dress up as that which is either most us, or most opposite us.  On that note, choosing to dress up as a spoiled little rich girl in a pretty red dress who won't be satisfied until she possesses everything in the world would opposite...yeaaaaah...myyyyyy opposite.

Day 277: Wasting a Sunday...the Musical!

2011 Total Earnings:  12,338.10

Today's Contest:  Fandango: Bring it On! The Musical! Sweepstakes (exclamation point)
Prize:  A trip for 2 out to LA to see the opening of this musical I'm sure I'd flip for (bum dum bump)
How to enter:

I got sucked in. I didn't want to but I did.  At first I scoffed at the singing cheerleader concept and was like "Gawwww, another movie turned into another The Musical!"  But then I watched the trailer.  High energy power ballads, cute boys, bitchy girl rivalries and basket tosses.  It's like gay crack.  Like when I watch ESPN at 2 am (the only time I ever watch it) to see the cheer championships..BUT. SET. TO. SHOWTUNES.  I'm powerless. So I went to the website and the facebook page and a bazillion other pages and so on and so on and down the rabbit hole I tumbled.
How could I not?
I was finally able to dismount from my ever downward spiral, but fortunately stumbled on this brilliant performance before I did.
If the producers of said musical know what they're doing, they will put this lady in their show, STAT.

This is not one of the actual shirts that you can win, but I am LIVIIIIIIIING for all of it.  I'll join a pre teen girl's soccer team if I need to in order to get it....slash you better believe she is going to fringe some shirts next summer.  Wendy betta werk, and actually be careful, cuz she's about to get hit in the head.
