"I never win ANYTHING!"

(If you're new from ICLW - quick back story at the beginning of this post as well as in the right side-bar timeline...)

 I did it again. I had a great blog entry in my head this morning..

something about 50 Shades... I even had a cute title : 50 Shades of __________ (and that's where my mind goes blank.)

I'm sure the idea came from last night - when I tell E at dinner, "wink wink - hey hunnie, reading 50 Shades of G.rey over here!" - and then we both want to be dominated later (and by dominated, I mostly mean the one on bottom... or in front... you get me, right?!)


Last night, we went to a fundraiser that E's company was sponsoring - Oktoberfest complete with lots of beer sampling, free food, a photobooth and prize wheel from V.erizon Wireless where apparently, I got the best prize on the wheel, first spin - bluetooth headset!  (does anyone use those anymore?)

A fundraiser is not a fundraiser without a tricky tray either - what's a Tricky Tray you ask? (I don't know if it's a northeast thing, but I had no clue what it was when I moved here so let me enlighten anyone clueless like I was: it's like a raffle, but there are lots of prizes and you buy a whole bunch of tickets, and enter your tickets only in the raffles that you want to win... pretty cool)

I got handed a camera to take pictures for the organization throwing the fundraiser, and *click* after *click* I photograph EVERYONE ELSE winning every single prize.

I NEVER WIN ANYTHING!! (ok, I got the bluetooth headset earlier, but I realized it wasn't that special, as I watched V.erizon basically GIVE the headsets away at the end of the night...)

but WAIT - one last prize, they say - the door prize that everyone (who bought tickets) was automatically entered to win, and it's a free 1-hour massage! (personally, I think it was the best prize of the night!)


And then, at the end of the night, I noticed a beer stand vendor walk up and drop a case of beer by E's coworker, muttering "oh, WHOOPS - look what just fell off the back of my truck!"

So I walked up to his beer table, shamelessly flipped my hair, batted the lashes, and said - "Would you happen to have any of the Railbender Ale?" *just only, the best local beer, EVER

He gave me two six packs.


  1. Yay for winning! Enjoy that massage :)

  2. Greetings from ICLW, Chiquita!

    Holy ish I never win anything either.. I am insanely jealous that you are no longer part of my sad, sad never-wins-ever group.

    Sidenote, everyone seems to be bringing up massages lately and I seem to be the one adult in the history of ever who has never had a professional massage.. must get on this.

    1. =O GET IN ON THAT! (Groupon tends to have alot... check 'em out!)

  3. Yesssssss. Awesome awesome news.

  4. Railbender, you say? Hmmm...If you ever want to trade local PA beers for local MA beers, let me know. It's a fun way to explore the flavors from different breweries. Happy ICLW!

    1. oooo sounds like a good deal! I used to live in MA, but wasn't of drinking age then - would love to try some!!

  5. Hi from ICLW, thanks for stopping by! I never win anything either but would love me a massage right now!

  6. Ohhhhh so jealous of the massage! I haven't had one in almost a year - I'm in desperate need of one! *works on adding this to my to-do list*

    And the gifs are killing me, I will always love Napoleon Dynamite. :)

  7. Very nice! I hope it's every bit as wonderful as winning it! Better, even!

  8. I nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. To find out more about the rules, the award and what you do check out this post blog. :)

  9. Jealous! I haven't had a massage in so long. Nice work getting the beer, too!
