Crown me Ms. Un-Motivated 2008!

Doodes. Seriously.

I've been thinking of you, fair blog readers. I've got plenty of things to share, I'm just feeling extremely lazy and unmotivated. In honor of that, I'm having a contest. (Yes, a contest to celebrate my own laziness - go figure.) I figure that by having a contest that requires me to post again shortly after it, I will have no choice but to get off of my duff and blog.

Here are the topics that I have a decent amount of crap with which to blog:

1. SAFF

2. Holiday Knitting

3. The ideal Cabana Boy

4. Random Thoughts about whatever (remember the Fancy Chicken post?)

Ok - everyone decide to what you want to hear about and post your choice in the comments section. I'm not promising fancy, woo-hoo pictures, or a fabulously written piece of work, but I can promise you that I will make you laugh and you'll want to come back. Whichever topic gets the most voters wins and I will be forced to blog about it.

If you vote, I will write down your name, put it in a hat (that I didn't knit myself) and I will have someone (not me) pick a name. You will win two skeins of Lorna's Laces Storm Watch. (Are you expecting some sort of photo here? Sorry - that's too involved for me at this point.) They are already wound up into cakes, and I think I have at least 1 label. I think. I have never used them, and they are just marinating away in my stash. I may even include something else, just because I am fun like that.

I will draw a name on Saturday - you have until 10am on Saturday to post your choice in the comments! Please feel free to also share something funny in the comments. Laughing is good.

My vote would be for..... hmmmmmmm there is a couple there. Ideal cabana boy or random thoughts. Ideal cabana boy or random thoughts. hmmmm which one to choose.

Can you tell that I am tired and cant make up my mind.

I will go for the random thought about an Ideal Cabana Boy. LOL

joyce said...

I am intrigued but the ideal cabanaboy, myself. Happily married I am but do have my own thoughts on what is "ideal."

Amalia said...

I vote for ideal cabana boy! If you really have "a decent amount of crap with which to blog," this should be interrrresting!

Frances said...

Well i have my own thoughts on the ideal cabana boy, Plurk abounds with random thoughts, so I vote for SAFF, especially since I didn't get to go, I would love to hear all about it! How's that for a run-on sentence?!

happyneedle said...

Can we vote for the ideal cabana boy thinking idle thoughts while knitting at SAFF?

No? Alright then, I vote for the knitting.

Knitcase said...

Ideal Cabana boy gets my vote

Jessica said...

While the cabana boy post is seriously tempting, the good fiber lover in me should vote for SAFF adventures. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! ;)

Lisa said...

Gotta go with the cabana boy.

SAFF = lots of fiber (we know that already.) :-D

Random = who knows? I'd rather know the subject.

Holiday knitting can be saved for another post. You still have almost two months for that! :-D

craftycrafter said...

I'll say the adventures at SAFF (whatever that is) with your ideal cabana boy. Who else are you going to get to carry all your swag if you don't have him?

Daniele said...

How could we not pick the Cabana Boy?!!

And..... why don't you go ahead and blog about your Holiday Knitting too. Inquiring minds want to know. (mine) :)

loribird said...

Ooo, Ooo! Tell us about shopping at SAFF for Holiday Knit Yarn with your Ideal Cabana Boy!!! It'd give me daydream-fodder for the next few months...

In all honesty, I'm in the mood to hear more about SAFF :D I know you were really excited about it, and it sounds like an awesome festival!

Lisa said...

I'm definitely voting for the cabana boy. Could you include pictures please? ;)

Guinifer said...

I will always go with the Cabana Boy!

~RaenWa~ said...

I vote for cabana boy too lol you can't go wrong with having cabana boy lol.

Cookie said...

3. The ideal Cabana Boy

& What he bought you at SAFF for the holidays. ;^)

Opal said...

the ideal cabana boy. all the way.

Jadielady said...

Hmmm its a tough choice... I went to SAFF, did I know you were going? I don't think I did....
On the other hand, Cabana boy?

knittycat said...

I love me some random thoughts!

ikkinlala said...

Like almost everyone, it seems, I'm choosing the cabana boy (but really, I just don't want to be reminded about holiday knitting yet).

evergreenknits said...

Ideal cabana boy for sure! With SAFF coming in as a close second.

And just to let you know, I'll be posting about your fab contest on WiKnit (http://wiknit.blogspot.com), my knitting contest blog

Becky said...

Holiday knitting gets my vote.

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I vote for The Ideal Cabana Boy. I know it's not likely, but if he happens to be 50ish, portlyish, and a knitter, reasonably well endowed in the yarn stash department, I just might qualify.

Erin said...

I vote for random thoughts... we need more of those! And funny... I paid $130 for a vet to shave my dog's butt earlier this week. And my toddler follows him around saying "Awesome butt!" :D sicilianbuttercup on Ravelry

She Knits Socks said...

I'm always a sucker for tales of the ideal cabana boy. Even though I have been married for 40 some-odd years to the same man, it's still fair to Think about a cabana boy!

edina said...

Holiday knitting...though the cabana boy is a close second!

Josiane said...

I'd be interested in reading your report about SAFF.

Awesome Mom said...

I would love to hear about the cabana boy, but only if you post pictures too.

Turtle said...

i agree, they all sound interesting but the ideal cabana boy leaves so much more tot he imagination, unless there are3 pictures!

teabird said...

Holiday knitting for $200, please.

teabird / ravelry

Katy said...

Hmmm...this is a hard choice! I say tell us about the SAFF adventures :)

I'm just as lazy...I have yet to blog about my trip to visit Cheeky and Rhinebeck!

Mary said...

SAFF, because I went, too, and have yet to blog about it, so I'd love to read someone else's account of it. And what an excellent LL colorway! :-)

-Mary (BloomKitty on Plurk)

P.S. my word verification for this post is "ipains" -- wonder what that's telling us???? ;-)

Dani said...

i know this is a cop out but I have no vote. I love the idea of you posting, but really, each of those topics works for me! So how about my choice would be yes - each one of those things over the next couple of days?

*smooches*

Wannietta said...

Ideal Cabana Boy - I will live vicariously through you!!

I am also intrigued by the cabana boy topic...not having any real thoughts of my own along those lines, of course - :>)
