2011/2012 Total Earnings:  $12,512.60

Today's Contest:  Ritz Topping Sweepstakes
Prize: $50,000
How to enter:

So you gotta 'like' this contest and then choose a topping that you dig most on a Ritz.
I chose cheddar.

I like a Ritz.  I can't seem to shake the midwestern outta me.  I like some Ritz, I like a little Fluff and Cream of Mushroom soup over rice is amazing.
Maybe I'm not so much Midwestern as I am completely geriatric.

On an non-octegenarian note, today is day 365 of muh year long blog experiment.
It kinda caught me by surprise.
So this is kinda the end, I guess.

I won some money
I won some prizes (including a pair of Isotoner gloves that I'm still waiting for)
I didn't have a movie made about my life like the Julie and Julia girl.
I guest blogged a couple times
I showed up each day
I don't have a regret about doing it, but sometimes I wonder why I did it
I'm grateful to my mom for leaving comments.

thanks blog
it's been fun slash bananas

There was an elaborate aquatic scene on Glee tonight where the teacher who dresses just like me in far too many vests and skinny ties,  finally selects the girl he really loves and proposes to her (i think he proposed...I didn't see the whole thing...i was unpacking my take out cooking dinner
It was all a very Busby Berkley Swim Sequence.

It got me thinking about being proposed to in an cinematic, amazing fairly tale way with singing teenagers in swimwear.
Alas mother is single right now.
But maybe she's feeling the potential of a relationship on the horizon.....

To potentially marry that I can't because of the store that I buy the cute clothes from to attract boys... To potentially marry that I can't because of the store that I buy the cute clothes from.
