Great Jam Give-Away the Third - Blackberry

Monday, March 24, 2008

Here's some blackberry jam from last week's batch. The usual rules apply:

1. Jim, Beastly, Michelle, Becca, Nathan, Shawn and family members are not eligible, because really, greed and gluttony are unbecoming in Hot Chicks and Smart Men.

2. I have delayed posting this until mid-day MST, to ensure everyone has an equal chance, even those who live west of me.

3. Shipment won't occur until I get around to it, because I do have other things to do this week, including performing the tasks for which I'm paid.

May the fastest blogger win!

Don't want the jam, but wanted to win anyway. :)

Shawn Powers said...

Yay! I got first post!

Cindi in CO said...

Anyone who wants this better speak up, and damn quick. Because, and I DO NOT exaggerate, this is the nectar of the Gods.

My smart man would argue that strawberry preserves are the actual nectar, but he's not as smart as I am when it comes to rating berries.

This stuff RULES.

Shawn Powers said...

OH, and the strawberry jam arrived. Pictures and review coming real soon now.

Janiece Murphy said...

Cindi, do you need some more?

(And this enquiry does not count against the two available jars - Cindi is a family member, so her fix comes out of a different stash.)

Shawn Powers said...

Is Boogie married? I ask, because I have a house full of single animals, and being a Murphy has it's perks...

;)

Jeri said...

Oooh, blackberry, my favorite, pick me! :)

Janiece Murphy said...

Shawn, Boogie is, as they say, "ill equipped."

Jeri, the first one's yours. Please send you snail-mail address to me at first name-dot-last name-upper case 2-comcast-dot-net.

Shawn Powers said...

Eunuchs are people too!!!

Or something like that... My pets are all missing important pieces as well. I guess it wasn't meant to be. :)

Cindi in CO said...

Since greed is unbecoming, I guess I should take this opportunity to admit that I have a jar and a half of blackberry left. Also one each of strawberry, blueberry and raspberry. So we're good.

Just like your preserves! :)

But thanks.

Tania said...

Can I claim a jar to be shipped to a friend? Because that would be fun!

If that disqualifies, that's ok.

Janiece Murphy said...

What you people do with my jam after I ship it is really none of my business. In some cases, I'm absolutely certain I don't want to know. Just sayin'.

Tania, the second jar's yours. Please send your snail mail (or your friend's - I don't know why you'd want to ship it twice, espeically to/from Alaska) to first name dot last name upper-case-2 comcast dot net.

Dammit, I'm always late to the party. I love blackberry, so next time it comes up, I call "shotgun."

Janiece Murphy said...

Anne, you can have some for your birthday. I'll bring it the next time we have lunch.

The Mechanicky Gal said...

Damn work getting in my way of responding.
However, do I get special dispensation as you are coming to visit? I'll buy you rolled tacos and guacamole (she sings, tauntingly)
Oh! And any special requests for spa day?

Janiece Murphy said...

Amy, yours is already on its way. The advantages of being "family."

But you can still buy me rolled taco's and guac!

And the same spa we went to last time works for me...

Jeri said...

Yay, I get jam! And I might not share it with my boys, who glop jam on biscuits like a midwesterner would use gravy. Address info is on its way. :)

Carol Elaine said...

I'm gonna have to have a serious talk with my boss for distracting me with stuff like work. Does the man not know that Janiece's jam is at stake here?

Y'all enjoy the blackberry jam!

*sigh*

Kate said...

*whimpers*

I can has jam sometyme soon 2.

Janiece Murphy said...

Kate and Carol Elaine, take heart. Eventually, all the regulars around here will be on the "ineligible" list, and you guys will win by default.

Because that is my evil plan...

Anne C. said...

Thank you, Janiece! You are a sweetheart! :)

Michael Lonergan said...

Jam, Yummy!

Carol Elaine said...

Thanks, Janiece.

You know, that thought HAD occurred to me. But then I remembered the type of luck I have when it comes to winning stuff and I realized that, as soon as it's down to to just me (because Kate would have won by then), then the entire world will have discovered you, you'll get readers that will rival or surpass Boing Boing in number and I'll never get the jam.

Alternately, I can just set a reminder to check your blog first thing every morning, boss be damned!

Shawn Powers said...

RSS. RSS will get you jam. :)

Carol Elaine said...

Shawn, hon, I'm old school. I'd forget to check my RSS feeds before I'd forget to check my blogs. Besides, I have a thing for looking at the designs of sites, thus no RSS for me.

Shawn Powers said...

Oh, I don't read blogs through RSS -- I just use Google reader to subscribe, then have a handy dandy bookmark that goes to my next unread blog. It's the best of both worlds really. :)

Just click, "NEXT" until there are no more unread blogs. Great way to kill a few spare moments between crises.

Tania said...

RSS got me the jam. Go RSS!!!
