Holy Moly, I actually WON!

You know that person that never wins anything? That's pretty much me. I've never won a big contest in my life, no matter how many times I enter. My brother, he won a frigging Saab. Really! Me, well, I won a copy of the latest Harry Potter book. That's good, right? I'd already read it, but it's good to have a second copy that the Boy can destroy. He's not that careful with his belongings.

But me.... I never win much of anything, even with my SIL's Aunt Trudy's trick of crumbling the entry forms just so, so they get more surface and are picked. Never worked for me. Aunt Trudy was lucky, I guess.

But today I got an email from Boston Mamas, which is NOT the New England Mamas, and I won a contest I had entered. A good contest. For something I desperately need. Check this out. I'm going to get an interior designer to come to my house and redecorate. Man, nobody could use this more than me. My house, shall we say, has a lived in look. Very lived in. Beyond shabby chic. Just plain shabby. Loved, but not what I'd ever call a magazine cover in the making. Unless it was Interior Errors. Then, maybe.

I don't know what they can possibly do with what we have (early crap), but I'm willing to let them go wild. And maybe, after 2.5 years of living here, we'll get the pictures up on the wall. Yeah, they're STILL sitting in a pile in the corner of my dining room. I'm that sad.

"David over at Mischief just did his. I am well over a hundred posts but I was unaware of the tradition. I'll do mine now and since the blogworld has been kidnapped by marauding-panty-raiding-renegade- Republicans-masquerading-as-fraternity-boys(Shrub is trying to kidnap the vote). Is anyone else laughing as they picture Margalit being held by Republicans? Hehehe. Very funny image. The 10 of us that escaped might read this."

This is a direct quote from my 100 things post. I thought you might find it smile worthy...

Dude. As you said. Wicked Pissah.

Still, I'm all about the shabby chic.
Actually, I'm just lazy and hate housecleaning.

But shabby chic sounds so much better.
