I'm a Winner

I just won tickets to a pre-screening of the new Coen Brother's movie!

I was laying on the couch waiting for the advil to kick in and do their thing on my cramps. I was surfing between the three channels the cable guy left behind (tv guide, nbc, and tbs), when the local morning show said they will be previewing the new movie and "call this number -- callers 6 through 10 will win tickets".

I didn't dash for the phone -- it was only when it occurred to me, "hey, I'm a winner" -- that I grabbed the phone, dialed, and hit redial until I got a ring instead of that busy signal. It took some time and rang so long I considered hanging up, but then I thought, "it takes time to get people's info and I'm a winner, so I'm going to wait until they answer and tell me so."

Guess how he answered the phone? "You're a winner."

I knew it!

Oprah would be so proud, I totally got those tickets with my mind.

Heh heh heh. I totally believe in the power of the mind. Concentrating real hard now on accepting my prosperity so that it can, yanno, understand that I'm here waiting.

There's a launch party happening over at my blog and you're invited! The grog'll work better than that Advil.

Found you over on "Everyone Has a Story to Tell. This Is Ours..." and thought I'd drop by for a visit. Cute blog!

So, I am amazed you could do that with your mind. I have tried sooooo many times to no avail. I never win any contest.

And... I hear you on the cramps thing. I wrote an entire post last week called "From Your Fallopian Tube With Love" dedicated to the monthly woes of women. Honestly, I am sooooo sick of the cramps. But, thank goodness for advil, right?

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Oh....I watch way too much ESPN with Jon. I should be ashamed of that lame comment.

But I'm not because instead I'm just jealous of your winner-ness.

Rad.
