WFTH Official Contest!

Happy I-Haven't-Been-On-The-Computer-Because-My-Internet-Got-Brokened Day! :) Oh, hey, guess what else? The next Words From The Hallway contest is.....officially open!! So, here's what you could win:

That's not a photo of the actual shirt, by the way. I just made that on my computer; when you win, you get to pick what color and size you'd prefer, then I'll send it along to you! The front of the shirt displays the message "Words From The Hallway" and the back has one of three WFTH (you get to choose out of this list): "You can't swing a dead cat without getting a picture of her picking her nose!" or "Fall is my favorite season because there are pumpkins. Which are like orange, squishy babies." or "I will smash the giant squids of anger with my giant hammer of justice!! Yaaay!"

That's first prize; second prize will get assorted truffles, along with a Footnotes magnetic pad of paper with a patriotic pencil, pictured below:

And third prize will get a random candy bar!
That's a lot of prizes. So, how can you win? Well, I'll tell you. (I can just hear your sigh of relief.)

You can earn multiple entries in this contest:

~one entry for commenting on this post
~one entry for becoming a follower (or, if you are already a follower, you earn one automatic entry)

(Those two you have to do to enter the contest, so I can find you to let you know you won, and so I can know you actually wanted to enter the contest. :D)

You can also earn bonus entries to increase your chances in the random drawing:

~one entry for each time you post a link to Words From The Hallway on facebook (take a screen shot and include that or a link to your post in your comment)
~one entry for encouraging someone else to become a follower (they must comment here that you recommended they join for you to earn this entry)
~one entry for posting your favorite type of cephalopod (e.g. giant squid, Kraken) in a comment to this post :D

Edit: Due to commenting issues that are now resolved, the deadline is now 7:00 p.m. EST on June 8th!

Good luck!

And now, on to the regular post of the day (because this isn't long enough as it is...sorry for my loquaciousness. Kudos to you if you know what that means. :)

Random Picture Of The Day:

How lovely. I do love a nice elephant in the morning. Afternoon. Whatever. It's almost as refreshing as a nice cup of coffee. Which I have never had. So I'm completely making this up. :D

Aaaanyway. Today's Words are from the Say What? category. My comments are in italics! Enjoy!

"Why is this bear, like, riding on unicorns and stuff?" Really, why wouldn't he be? If you were a bear, wouldn't unicorns be your preferred method of transportation? And would you like people making fun of you for it? Huh? Huh?

"Therefore, I would rather have a possessed goldfish than a free-from-demons silver fish." But of course.

"It is sad, but it's more dramatic than sad. It's like watching a hair go down the drain." Because watching hairs go down the drain is the epitome of drama. People actually line up for days in advance for new premieres of such events. Me, I don't line up days before. But not because I don't care--I've got connections. I can always get front-row seats to Drains, And Hairs Going Down Them.

"She's like an orange--sweet until you start to take off the peel, then she turns into an onion." Well, that makes sense. Mixed metaphor, anybody?

Thank you, Tassel. First and most spastic entry. :)

Most Spastic Entry award of the day given to Tassel, because tassels are such elegant decorations that they should be given trophies to elegantly decorate themselves! However, I can top that spazzaliciousness! -insert incredibly spasmodic and rather amusing comment here-

Miss Eve,

I thank you from the bottom of my heart (maybe the top of my heart would be better?!)for increasing my vocabulary. I love reading your blog! I find it extremely interesting and quite informing. Although sometimes I need my dictionary at hand to help me with all the fantabulous words you use!! You rock!!!!!!!!!!

Faithful fan,
Julie K.
