Candy giveaway

Have you tried these yet?


The Snickers Adventure Bar is a limited edition candy bar that came out for the new Indiana Jones flick. It’s got a hint of coconut flavor along with some other spices and is pretty delicious! I had one and liked it so much that I went to my usual excesses and ordered a few cases of it online. And just like with the Strawberry Whoppers, I need to divest myself of some of these delicious magical candy bars.

So, here’s the deal:

Let’s see how well you know me! Here are five questions about me. Answer them in the comments, and if you get all five correct, your name will be entered in a drawing. I’ll pick two, maybe three names out of those and send all of the winners one of these limited edition Snickers Adventure Bars!

1. How tall am I?

2. What’s my dog’s name?

3. What was my undergraduate degree in?

4. How long have I been blogging?

5. What’s my favorite drink?

Have a good weekend!

  4. melanie

    I am horrible at remembering details, aside from the diet coke with lime thing, but the image of you naked is burned in my brain forever. Isn’t that enough “knowing you” to earn a candy bar?

    I’m so impressed with myself-I didn’t look at anyone’s answers! I love me some Snickers. My guy brings them home for me a few times a week. I think he wants to keep me chubby, ha!

    BTW, Hooters now has boneless wings you can eat with a fork. And they are a $1 less than the regular ones.

  6. Sarah

    Pretty much the only thing I think I know is that your dog’s name is Jigsaw. But I don’t mind not winning, I hate coconut anyways. But I hope who ever wins really likes them because wouldn’t it suck if you sent them to someone who hated ’em?

  7. AmyD

    Duuuude, it’s Friday and mah husband is totally mah store bitch. Therefore… I am here only to harass the ever lovin’ hell out of you and watch my daughter do a less hairy Avitable impression.

    1. After standing next to you, I’m saying 5’10”
    2. Jigsaw, you twisted bastard
    3. Asian studies, although I think you misinterpreted that; it was supposed to be history and culture and not Japanese pornography.

    5. Diet Coke. I’m surprised you haven’t mainlined this directly into your veins yet.

  14. Robin

    Dammit, I wasn’t logged in and lost it. Ok, I said that I pph coconut but I know I won’t win this contest.

    1. How tall am I?
    7’11

    2. What’s my dog’s name?
    Avril

    3. What was my undergraduate degree in?
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    4. How long have I been blogging?
    Since in the womb.

    5. What’s my favorite drink?
    Diet Coke with a splash of Gilmore Girls.

  15. Deb on the Rocks

    I’m sure about Jigsaw and Diet Coke. I think 7 inches. The degree question is a trick, because you earned a general studies certificate from the Federal penal system correspondence program with Iowa State. You began blogging on Live Journal to vent your heartbreak and anger over your divorce from Heather Armstrong in 2002.

  16. trishk

    Let’s see
    1. 6′
    2. I could cheat and go by the other commenters, but I won’t because I really don’t know. But I will after the Halloween party I may actually have a chance to meet your dog.
    3. Law
    4. 4 years
    5. This one I do know, because it is my favorite also. Diet Coke with Lime.

  17. ADW

    1. How tall am I?

    In my dreams you are only 3 Apples tall. I pick you up, put you in a pouch in the front of my thong and take you with me wherever I go.

    In reality, you are taller than I am in heels, so 6′ or so?

    2. What’s my dog’s name?

    ….Sniffle, sniffle, my name is Jigsaw and I will bark along the fence line. I know you are out there you damnable vermin. You are taunting me. My master has taught me a thing or two about the sweet art of retaliation and I am waiting… just waiting for you to set foot inside my property line where I have all manners of implements of torture. No one will ever hear you scream….

    3. What was my undergraduate degree in?

    You get a degree for being Under Graduates? I need to move up from boning blue collar workers. Plus I have to change positions. Reverse Cowgirl isn’t going to get me far these days. Although with the price of gas, the cost of making house calls is definitely going up.

    What was the question?

    Oh, I haven’t a shitfucking clue? The physiology of masturbation?

    4. How long have I been blogging?

    I got nothing. 4 years.

    5. What’s my favorite drink?

    The sweet nectar of the love muffin.

    But after that, it would be Diet Coke with Lime.

    I will stock it for you in a mini fridge in the guest room if you come visit. Ohio in the winter is AWESOME!!!

    And no matter what my husband says, you get to go first.

  18. Employee No. 3699

    I can’t play this game because I just read all the comments and now know 4 out of five answers.

    The only question that seems to be up for grabs is what your degree was in. I’m going to have to go with ‘The Foundation of the Duration of Masturbation Elation’ with a minor in ‘The Frustration of Castration’

    Toodles~

  19. Poppy

    1. 6′ (with shoes?)
    2. Jigsaw

    1. 5′ 11″
    2. Britt
    3. Psychological Torture
    4. Since the Dawn of Man

    I scrolled down through the comments and pretty much saw all the right answers, but if I had put them down as my answers, well….that would just be CHEATING! I am nothing, if not honest….. except when I tell my husband, “Oh it’s OK honey. I’ll just let you take care of me next time.”. Then I am lying through my teeth!

    4. Four years (and your first posts were about the business you had just started)
    5. Diet coke with LIME

  24. fiwa

    This is my birthday weekend + which makes my husband my slave = which means he will be headin’ on down to the store to buy me some of those.
