First, an announcement about the Halloween party. We’ll be disclosing the theme soon, and if you have any interest in attending (Saturday, October 24th in Altamonte Springs, FL), please submit your information below if you haven’t already done so.

I tallied each correct answer, which was a total of 217 entries from 29 of you. I put the list into the randomizer at Random.org, and then I used the random integer generator to pick a number at random. Out of 217 entries, it chose #47, belonging to Lynn from Been There Done That. Congratulations, Lynn! You win the iPod – email me at adam at avitable dot com with your address so I can send you your prize.

To the rest of you, thanks for playing and I’ll do this again sometime soon, so stay tuned!

    Halloween Party, Blah blah blah. Nobody gives a shit about your stupid little party. Give away prizes and show porn. Leave the party planning to the party planning committees.

  2. Been there, Done that

    Adam,
    I think that I told you this before, but I really appreciate the work that you put into these contests. My family (what’s left of them…you-know-who is off with his gf)comes to my house each Sunday to see if I remember how to cook. This contest was the highlight of the dinner, because my cooking certainly wasn’t. Winning makes it extra special.

    I don’t know how I missed this, but I’m OH SO SAD I did. Also, Can’t Hardly Wait is one of my top 5 all time favorites. I even own the soundtrack. Feel free to lose ALL respect for me now.
