Zow. Thank you all. And a little more info…

It’s been very hard to get all the information about the Quaker State contest. We went looking for the ending date and it took more than 45 minutes of searching to come up with it. As it turns out, it’s much different than we originally thought and much, much different than I wrote here.

Lest I be in violation of your trust and good faith, allow me to sum up what we have now learned:

* The contest is for far more than a TV spot. The grand prize involves Jimmie Johnson (who Quaker State sponsors) and a trip for two to a NASCAR race. Second place does not involve Jimmie Johnson, but does have a trip for two to a NASCAR race. Everyone else is chopped liver.

* However, if your film clip is used on TV for one of their ads, you’re out of the running for the above mentioned prizes. (wtf?) No clue, it’s just part of the rules.

* The contest is NOT over at the end of the week. No, my dear sisters in fiber, it runs from February 15th through MAY 31st (Katy’s 23rd birthday, for anyone who’s interested.) Didn’t see that one. And to ask you to continue to click the thumbs up until May 31st is asking an awful lot. I’m not sure I’m even in it for that long. (Okay, Scott will just get on my computer and vote in my place if I don’t, but you get the picture…)

* Therefore, I am declaring that the contest for the sock yarn will run until 11:59pm this Saturday, February 28th. On March 1st (my sister Patty’s and brother Mike’s 51st  birthday for anyone who’s interested) each comment signifying 5 thumbs up will get a name in the hat and the NASCAR crazed husband will draw three. First one gets to choose between the fiber and the sock yarn. If the first one refuses the fiber, the second one will get to choose between the fiber and the sock yarn. If the second one refuses the fiber, the third one gets it. (Anyone here not spin?) Or something like that. There will be winners and prizes awarded for your love and faithfulness. In the event that all three names drawn belong to the same person, two more (different) names will be drawn (sry) but I will find something special for that person in addition to the yarn or fiber.

So that’s what I know to date. Currently Scott is in fourth place with 717 votes (that’s a whole lot more than yesterday. Y’all have been busy!) To move into third place he will have to have one vote more than the current occupant with 846 votes. And to move into second with a shot at that race (can you hear him jumping up and down and shouting, “Woot! Woot! Woot!”  from where you are? I’m not surprised…) he’ll need more than 942 votes. (Those are the figures at the time I’m writing this. These could change imminently.)

And I just want to tell you all that you’re the most wonderful blog readers in the world. Now, if someone could just tell me how I can put a Bloglines button on here, maybe I can get y’all to ‘vote’ for me too?

Hugs and thanks to you all!

  1. I voted again. He’s in 2nd place, awesome!

  2. I voted for you Scott again today! 2nd place and climbing to #1!

  3. I voted today 2/28/09 and he has moved up to the front page of the ad, way to go Scott. Now how about coming and visiting us here in GA man, robin could use some man bonding.

  4. Just did my daily vote on both computers. Total of 10 thumbs up. I will make sure that I do it again tomorrow.. and the next day… and the next day…and the next day…. It looks like he is currently in 2nd place!!!

  5. hey you 😉

    somehow i missed the “leave a comment per day voted” bit…so for what it’s worth i’ve voted 3x now and as of last time i checked scott was at 4th place!

    i hearby selflessly volunteer to take the spinning fiber from anyone who doesn’t want it *big silly grin* as you’re well aware i just can’t stand your fiber! *second sillier grin* (note: hopefully susie knows i’m just giving her grief–her fiber is always amazing and a joy to spin–worth learning just to use it imho!)
    hugs to you & scott & whomever else might be around and need a hug 😉

  6. I voted today, you brother

  7. I voted today and yesterday and the day before. but I will let a comment everyday to let you know

  8. I voted again, and again, and no, I don’t spin unless you count the tizzy HS kids put me in! Go Scott!

  9. I voted yesterday and today and already left a comment about the day before. It would be so great for him to win! Am I the only person on earth who doesn’t spin? I’m so ashamed!

  10. more voting done! and I loves me some fiber. :o)

  11. When you first go to Bloglines, in the right frame, scroll down to Publish, Share & Save. Second option under that is “Post a ‘Subscribe to Bloglines’ Button on your blog” link.

    I’m not a spinner either. I’m going to give another 5 thumbs up tomorrow (or maybe today, depending what time zone you’re in, the 27th) but I don’t want to clog up your comments with a bunch of single comments.

  12. I just voted again. 🙂

    And, I may be the sole non-spinner around here.

    In regards to the Bloglines button….do you mean putting one on the blog so people can click it to subscribe? Or, do you mean a button to show your blogroll? Either way, feel free to email me and I’ll help you out.

I'd love to hear from you...
