Does This Constitute a Giveaway???

MK suggested I just tell my story, and then call it a day.  Or, a giveaway.

So here goes. 

I don't drink coffee.  Not ever.  I do, however like hot chocolate.  But, I rarely drink that either. 

Therein lies the paradox.  (any Prep readers out there?  gotta love when one can throw this statement in to sound smart, but end up looking dumb).

I digress....

I don't drink coffee.  Or eat muffins.  I don't make a big deal out of it.  I just don't do it. 

So, ultimately, everyone gives me Starbucks cards.  As in gift cards.  As in a lovely thought that will never be used on my end.

I just logged in to see the full value of my FOUR Starbucks gift cards (one of which is somewhere in the neighborhood of like 12 years old). 




Sum total = $26.37

Waste not, want not Mother Seersucker always says.  So, I'm going to give YOU $20.00 in Starbucks gift cards (3 separate cards - $5, $5 & $10).  I will keep the $6.37 gift card for myself just in case I get a flat tire in front of a Starbucks one day and feel like having a hot chocolate. 

Well then.  Isn't this exciting?  Would you, dear reader, enjoy $20 in Starbucks?  MK says she definitely would and therefore I should post this little giveaway.  If I were her I would have told me this would be a stupid giveaway and just taken the cards myself.  But MK doesn't think that way :) 

Now, let's think of the rules here...

If you leave me a note that you want to gobble up $20 in Starbucks I will enter you ONCE.

If you are a follower (and do the above) I will enter you TWICE.

If you post a little tidbit on your blog about your hope to gobble up some Starbucks (and do all three of these) I will enter you THREE times.

All entries should be received by Wednesday, January 27, 2010 at 5pm EST.

Hmmm...that seems adequately complicated I think.

Alrighty then.....drink up!

I have to state honestly I do not drink coffee or hot chocolate and I do not eat muffins. But I love love love the chai tea that Starbucks has. I have loved the Apple and the Berry chai. There is something about them that is just so soothing to me.
