Ok, so, only a teeshirt that I will probably never wear because I don't wear teeshirts. But, I've subscribed to Geotimes/Earth magazine for over 5 years and on a whim I entered the Where On Earth? contest a few months ago, and today a teeshirt arrived because I won. Ironically, this was the first and only time I've ever entered.

I feel special.

What has the talented and wonderful PPK won lately?

Is it an awesome t-shirt? I like getting pretty much anything in the mail, so I can understand getting excited about winning something you don't even really have use for.

Last month I won a vegan belt from Truthbelts, and I won a cute book from http://www.veganappetite.com/.
I never wear belts, but I've been trying to do it more often.

And I usually don't win stuff, so it was super exciting to win two things back to back in one month.

As teeshirts go, it's ok. It is a nice quality 100% cotton shirt and it has a geeky geology vibe going. I'll probably cut the collar out (I hate the high necks on teeshirts--they make me feel like I'm choking) and wear it around the house.

It just randomly arrived in the mail today, so I thought it was sort of cool.

Yay. Congrats. Winning stuff is fun!

I haven't won anything in quite a while. I'm pretty sure the last time I won something I was in second grade. My entire class had to enter a father's day drawing contest that was held by the local newspaper. I got 3rd place and won a $35 gift certificate to any place in the mall.
That $35 went to the best Littlest Pet Shop toys EVER!

Woo! I just won a poster from a band I only somewhat enjoy. A year ago, I supposedly won a soymilk machine, but I have yet to recieve it. Alas.

Whooo! How exciting. Pics?

I've never one any real prizes, just some timeshare thing that if I sat through a 3 and a half hour "meeting," they'd give me a camera. ....I don't think that counts as winning.

I once came second in a colouring competition that my dad was judging. So much for nepotism, Dad.

Also my brother and I once wrote to a morning cartoon show and they read our letter on air and send us a box of miscellaneous shiitake they didn't want from their advertisers. So many toothbrushes and exceedingly large Animorphs t-shirts.

I usually only enter for movie or concert tickets. I won Kelis tickets the other day but the show started at midnight and I wasn't feeling great, so I passed them on to a friend.

Woohoo! Geology swag for the win!

On a totally random note, I want a shirt with a picture of a hunk of schist that says "Don't take me for granite."

I won hockey tickets in a drawing at work. They were super good seats so it was a decent prize.

Hehe! Similarly, I've been coveting a "geology rocks!" shirt.

I won a baking contest in 4th grade (blondies with marshmallow cream baked in), but didn't actually get anything for it. Maybe a ribbon, I can't remember.

Congratulations!

I won a writing contest in 8th? 9th? grade. The essay I wrote sucked though, I'm pretty sure I was the only contestant.

I tend to only win stuff I'll never use. Like m*at stuff, or white t-shirts.

I won a visa gift card at work (well, "earned" is more like it, but they called it a contest and called me a winner, so...) Between that and selling my old coffee table on craigslist, I got a bootiful new coffee table for $11.31 out of pocket.

I supposedly won two free half gallons of Silk, but I'm still waiting for the coupons.

How fun!

I can't really think of anything I've won, but I haven't entered any contests, so that probably explains it.

I entered a contest on a blog last month and won an awesome-looking tote bag, but have yet to receive it. Nice win on the t-shirt though!

It's my dream to win something on a vegan blog giveaway.

I had a dream the other night that I won a bunch of money on a scratch ticket. That was a disappointing one to wake up from.

A month after I went vegan, I won five boxes of Totino's rolls and five frozen Totino's pizzas. It saddened me.

Contests require you to do something to win like write an essay.

Sweepstakes just pull your name out of the whatever.

Now you know!
