Better late than never, I guess! Turtlegirl wants the contest!

To recap last year: This is HT's version of the neighborhood condo buildings holiday lights competitions. You know...which building can outdo the other!

Beginning immediately and lasting 'til Tues. 12/23, when voting will take place, go for it! Let's see who can outdo the other in 70x70 pixels! Oh...last years entries can't be reused! I'll make a call for voting post on Tues, approx. 12N, Hawaii time. The winner will be announced 24 hours later! Phew...this is one fast contest!

I'm offering the same, overly generous prize as last year...a tune of the winner's choice from the iTunes Music Store!

<tee hee!> I'm not eligible! Thanks, tho'!

ETA:
If you're entering the contest please be sure to post to that effect in this thread. I'm seeing holiday avatars in other threads; avatars that haven't been declared here. They might not been seen by those interested in voting. Co'mon, folks. There's a HUGE prize at stake! :D

Voting was scheduled to start at 12N today but I won't be near my computer to post this message. So...we'll start a little early. PM me your vote (no stuffing the PM box, please!) by 12N tomorrow, 12/24. I'll post the winner by 3p.

Even if you didn't enter...please VOTE! My vote will be a tie breaker if needed.

On your mark...
Get set...
YES WE CAN!

Scriv doesn't enter his contests! ;) Apples and oranges. Scriv's contests are quizzes and he already knows the answers, so he can't enter. But your contest is about creativity and you have no way of knowing the outcome, so I say you ARE eligible. And I'll bet Scriv and everyone else would agree.

Just PM me with your choice!

I'll tack on an extra 2 hours and take votes 'til 2p! I'll be too busy after that! So, keep the votes a comin', folks!

Woo-hoo! First Obama, now Matapule! I've picked at least TWO winners this year; I'm on a roll. Good thing I just did my Grammy ballot...

MATAPULE!

Gee, thanks everybody, it is an honor to be recognized by your colleagues. Things have been a little busy around matapule's fale this Christmas with family from far-flung places and all and everyone having a wonderful time. I feel very opitimistic about this next year. I believe the country has been infused with new enthusiam and hope. I can realistically say that I have seen some small hopeful signs in the economy in the last month despite the dreary holiday sales figures. Let's venture forth with our chins up into 2009 with optimism and good cheer. It is our time, we can do it!

At this time in our lives we can choose to be either gruntled or disgruntled. Who among you chooses to join me in feeling gruntled?

tutusue
December 27th, 2008, 05:36 PM
Oooooh...I choose gruntled, for sure. Takes way too much energy to be disgruntled plus being gruntled bugs the h3!! outta disgruntled folks!

So...what song are ya gonna choose?!

Gruntled (1926, per Merriam-Webster): to put in a good humor.

Okay, I can be gruntled. But if I have to put my chin up, I might trip and hurt myself. Then I would get disgruntled.

Okay, this has not been an easy choice! This was one of the main topics of discussion among family members while sitting in the spa/jacuzzi in the backyard yesterday. The debate was heated but everyone was very gruntled. Suggestions ranged from Santa Baby, to JL's Imagine, to Peggy Lee's Is That All There Is?, to FS's I Did It My Way. However, the winner is, one that everyone supported..............
