99 & Counting... Party on, Excellent!

Believe it or not, this is my 99th post which means the next one will be my 100th! (I aced second grade math.)

In order to properly honor this auspicious occasion, I'll be giving stuff away. Not just any old stuff, but cool stuff. Stuff like Borders Gift Cards and books and a SECRET GRAND PRIZE (SGP) THAT IS SO COOL YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO STAND IT!!!!

"How do I win all this cool stuff?" you ask. Well, that's easy! Everyone who comments on THIS post will be eligible for a $10 Borders Gift Card and everyone who comments on my Centennial Post (which will magically appear on Friday) will be eligible for a $20 Borders Gift Card.

All commentators from this post AND/OR the next will be eligible to win the SGP!
(To be revealed on Friday and, yup, one person could feasibly win both gift cards AND the SGP!)

I'm hoping these enticing incentives will coax some of you lurky-loos out of Lurksville, Lurkytown, or Lurkland, or wherever the hell it is you live in order to say "Hello!" or "Wassup?" or "Your Mother Wears Army Boots!" or whatever the hell it is you lurky-types like to say.

Also, all NEW FOLLOWERS who come on board the Write on Target Party Train between now and this coming Sunday will be eligible for an additional $10 Borders Gift Card (and if you comment, the SGP!).

So, I hope you'll join the party and help me celebrate nearly eight months of fun and frolic. (I don't know about you, but I just LOVE to frolic!)

ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED BY 9PM-ISH EST ON SUNDAY, 5/17.

Party on Wayne, party on Garth!!!

IS THE SUPER DUPER PRIZE A PACER? The same one Wayne and Garth rolled in?

Sandra Leigh said...

Cool! I won't wish you a happy blogiversary until your next post. I'll just Party On,Debra!

Beth said...

Party on, Deb. Excellent. My cousin has a Pacer. I bet he'd drive us around in it while we all jammed to "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Cool idea, and thanks for sharing your red letter day with us!

Rick said...

Just happened to be surfing by. Sign me up. BTW: What's a book?

Vivi Alden said...

Wow, 99 posts! Schwing!!! Congrats, Deb. Your posts are always from the heart and having almost 100 of them under your belt is a great achievement. (and I'm not just buttering you up in hopes on getting my hands on that SGP. Though I am curious. If it's dinner with George Clooney, I'll freak!)

Party on, girl! :>)

writtenwyrdd said...

Good for you!

DebraLSchubert said...

Myra, Maybe, maybe not!

Sandra, Party On, my friend, Party On!

Beth, Galileo, Galileo, figaro magnifico!!!

Rick, Welcome! A book is a thing with pictures of naked women in it, oh wait, that's my husband's magazine. Book? Hmmm... I'll look it up and get back to you.

Vivi, Yeah, girlfriend, and you've been here from close to the beginning - SCHWING! (And who leaked the SGP???)

WW, Thanks!

Midlife Mama said...

Party on, Debra! I just followed you...and now I'm commenting. Sweet! LOL Congrats on the milestone. :)

DebraLSchubert said...

MM, Welcome aboard! I hope you like the ride. You're in contention!!

Litgirl01 said...

Party on Deb!!! ;-)

Michelle said...

Debbie,

I want you to know that I follow your blog religiously (actually if I followed your blog religiously, it would mean that I never follow your blog). What I mean is, I don't think I've missed a post since you began your wild and crazy journey into the blogospere. Your posts evoke, laughter, tears and deep thought. And I'm not just saying that because you're giving away super cool prizes. Really. But if you ever want to hold your future niece or nephew...(This isn't one of those offers where relatives are excluded, right? That would be stupid)

Amy said...

Ooh...I hope I win, I hope I win!! 'Cuz I love your blog!!! And the fact that we both love Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks!

Kate Karyus Quinn said...

Congrats on being so close to such a huge blogging milestone!

Rebecca Anne said...

I like your new remodel! Well done (does sucking up give me an extra entry?) 99 posts! Party!
I'm only at 61, but plan to have a party myself when the time finally comes.
I'm in, but I can't drink this week, I'm on drugs ya know~
Rebecca

DebraLSchubert said...

Traci, You too, girlfriend!

Baby Sister, I'm thrilled and honored to know you follow me - I honestly had no idea!! And, keeping in the theme of this post, your threat IS worthy (we're not worthy, we're not worthy!!). Of course, relatives are allowed, hell even encouraged, to participate! Good luck! (Oh, and I love you.)

Amy, Stevie rocks! Did you read my article today on Fiona Apple? She rocks, too.

Kate, Thanks. It's a huge milestone and I'm happy to be able to celebrate it with you.

Rebecca, Thanks! I thought it was time for a fresh, new "do." Sorry you're not feeling well, but you're right - drugs and alcohol don't mix. Hopefully you'll be feeling better and up to drinking again soon.;-)

Kasie West said...

Wahoo! It's a party in the comments section. And later it's going to be a party at Borders (because I will win, right?) LOL Happy 100th post. Oh, wait, Happy 99th post (I didn't pass second grade math).

DebraLSchubert said...

Kasie, I've got to ask you a question, so e-mail me if you get a chance at dlschubert@verizon.net. And, yeah, baby - it's a party in the comment section!!!

Lady Glamis said...

Cool! I don't do anything like this for my blog. The poor neglected thing. I have 230 posts and I passed my year mark the beginning of this month. Any parties? Special mentions? Nope. I think my blog is going to revolt. Hehehehe.

This is an awesome contest! I'm excited. Pick me! Pick me!

DebraLSchubert said...

Michelle, You're officially in the running! You should treat your blog better. You never know when it might revolt and do something nasty like bite your hand or print only exclamation points.;-)

valbrussell said...

Happy Blog Centennial Debbie! :) No prize for me, I'm in a different country, therefore ineligible so you know I'm here and sincere. ;)
By the way, thank you for those links, the sites were well done and I appreciated reading what these women had to say. You're a doll ya know! Later gator.

DebraLSchubert said...

Val, Good news, girlfriend, Canada's in the game, therefore, you're in the running! And, I'm so glad you enjoyed the links. Hugs, D

Pen Pen said...

...now I want to see that movie! THey crack me up!! :)
Happy Bogiversary!!!
I'm doing a tiny finger dance in honor of you!
HUgs!!!!!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Well, pre-congrats on that 100th post, Schube. Sign me up for the loot!

DebraLSchubert said...

PenPen, Yeah, it's TOO funny! I also love the SNL skit with Garth and Wayne and Madonna (we're not worthy, we're not worthy!!!). And, thanks for the finger dance.

Angie, Consider yourself signed up!!

dbcooper said...

Congrats on 99 from a recent follower. Keep them coming.

Paul Michael Murphy said...

I too enjoy a good frolic, although I must admit I'm usually more of a gallivanter.

Kelly said...

Excellent!
Thanks for the party, Debra! Looking forward to number 100!

Anita said...

I was just going to have a plain old drink, but now I'll have a drink to you!

Party on!

koralee said...

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Congrats on almost 100! Looking forward to reading it.

DebraLSchubert said...

dbcooper, I'll do my best to keep them coming. Thanks for joining the party!

Paul, I had a feeling you were a gallivanter. Does your wife know?

Kelly, I'm glad you're able to join in the festivities. It wouldn't be the same without you!

Anita, You and I are going to have a REAL drink together the next time I'm in CO. (But it never hurts to start practicing early.);-)

koralee, Yup, good timing on my part, I mean your part! You should have a party, too. Look how many cool (if not a bit odd) folks show up!

MJ, I hope I won't disappoint!

giddymomof6 said...

WAHOOO! 99 is just AWESOME! And Count me in! LOL! I would've been here sooner, but my darn UK internet doesn't love me as much as I need it too! But Heck yeah! Barnes and Noble GIFT CARDS! yOU ROCK! Okay, so yeah... you literally do, but you know what I mean! LOL! Jenni

DebraLSchubert said...

Jenni, I wondered what took you so long to show up! You're usually the A-#1 party girl. I'm glad you didn't let me down! (Plus, right now you're the only person on Planet Earth to have won a giveaway by me - what a glorious title!!)

Shasta said...

Nice blog! I found you by way of Margaret & Helen. I can't wait to catch up on the rest of your posts.

DebraLSchubert said...

Shasta, Welcome! I LOVE Margaret and Helen! They are the Goddesses of the blogosphere!!!

Big Plain V said...

Is there any possible way to use Border's gift cards to buy beer? Cuz I get all my books free from the library.

DebraLSchubert said...

Ray, You seem pretty sure you're going to win. I like that kind of confidence in a man.;-)
