So here's the skinny: I don't love contests. I don't love how they fill up your facebook page or blow up your twitter feed (or whatever that thing is called). I don't love when people make you do things in order to give you gifts.
That said, I don't love me this morning.
Because we're going to band together to take part in a contest, and if you compete, you have the option of winning something. Trust me, I'm a giver, if I could I'd send you all presents, all the time.
ASIDE: This makes me think of the lunch a Chinese friend took me to and tried to pump me for information on how to date an American girl. But that's a story for another time.
Anyhow, let's get down to the brass tacks:
This is a facebook contest. It has nothing to do with me, other than I know one of the participants, and I really really really want him to win.
Here's his picture:
His name is Daniel.
He's trying to get the most votes for his "Planking Pic" in order to win $500.
Him and his darling wifey are due to have a baby approx. 3 days before me.
They want the money to put furniture in their nursery.
Y'all, he's just trying to get his baby a crib.
We can surely support that, even if we do hate contests on facebook.
(You're with me on that, right?)
Here's where you come in:
- Step 1: Go to Upstate Adventure Bootcamp's Facebook page. "Like" them, even if you don't really. Trust me, it's not lying. We've got dispensation from the Llama for this one.
- Step 2: Find The above picture, and "Like" it. Be glad you don't have to lie about this one, in case you felt like you were lying before. I mean, who doesn't like the picture? (His name is Daniel Keaton, in case you need to search the page to find it).
- Step 3: Come back here and tell me that you have completed steps 1 & 2. Tell me how you feel about planking, or contests, or soup that has grown cold. - 1 entry
- OPTIONAL: Share this contest on your Facebook page with the following blurb, and then come back and tell me you did that, too. "Help Daniel Keaton get his baby a crib by liking Upstate Adventure Bootcamp, and then liking the picture of a guy in an awesome sports coat planking on a horse!" - 2 entries. Because spreading love is a powerful thing.
The contest goes until Friday at 5:00 PM, so on Saturday, I'll draw a name from the list of my friends (that'd be you all, peeps!) and that lucky winner will win a wallet from TFW's sweat shop. Trust me, there is no sweating going on. Although I don't have pictures of the actual product, it'll look something like one of these:
So go on, get your vote on! Daniel, he has no idea that we're doing this. So it's like a surprise. A little goodwill toward your fellow man, if you will. Which reminds me, we are T-3 months until Christmas! A wallet might be a nice choice!
I couldn't Plank if I wanted to,
