Free Shit Friday

Friday, April 29, 2011
I'm starting a new feature here at Hot Chicks Dig Smart Men called "Free Shit Friday." As the name implies, I'll be occasionally giving away my shit in this space on Fridays. As a point of record, here's da rules:
  • I'll occasionally be giving away my shit. That shit may be handbags or shoes, or something I've made such as jam or knitting.
  • Whatever I'm giving away will be free to whoever wins it. I'll even pay for postage.
  • When I post an item, and you want it, you'll simply leave a comment asking for it.
  • If more than one person wants my shit, I'll use a random number generator to pick a winner. 
  • If you're a regular around here, you'll be getting three random numbers assigned to your name. If you're a drive-by or a lurker, you'll get one. Sorry, lurkers - I like the community I've built here, and I see no reason not to reward people who choose to be active members by giving them a better chance at claiming my shit.
  • This shit is free. I paid for it, I made it, I'm mailing it. That means you don't get to pick at me if I don't get your shit in the mail in the time frame you think I should. If you bitch - you lose my shit. Yes, Nathan, that means you.
  • I'll announce the winner when I feel like it, and give that person three days to send me their snail-mail address. If I don't hear back within that time-frame, I'll pick another winner. You snooze, you lose. 
That's about it. Good luck!

Hey! WTF did I do?

And just to prove I'm not the avaricious, whiny bastard implied, I hereby voluntarily recuse myself from all giveaways in which the "shit" consists of purses, shoes and/or other girly stuff. Furthermore, if you ever gift me with a photo, model or any other representation of a monster-truck, I'll cede my award to Shawn. (This offer does not apply to actual monster trucks -- those, I'll take.)

I'm all for free shit friday; especially your shit. Can't wait to see what's up. BTW did I mention how yummy your apple butter is????

Nathan, I don't know if Anonymous Girlfriend likes handbags or not, but if you have a chance to score her a Coach bag and you don't take it, there might be CONSEQUENCES.

And no, I will not be giving away real Monster Trucks. But I do have something on my list that I think my male readers will be clamoring for. And probably some of the ladiez, too.

Woo hoo! Free stuff from Janiece!

Wait, I'm already a regular beneficiary of your generosity. Well... woo hoo for everyone else! ;)

Megan said...

Oh, I am SO IN.

Tom said...

So, is your shit stuff? Or is it just shit? You know, like your shit is stuff, but other people's stuff is shit (H/T to G. Carlin)

I'll just bet your shit is good shit! Stuff I'd maybe like. I'll bet. You know, stuff.

Nathan said...

OK, GF will take one Miu Miu Metalasse' in beige and one in red.

Janiece said...

GF's going to be waiting a long time, Nathan. I'm not that big of a handbag snob.

Mavro said...

Lovely idea. But errrr.... you pay for the postage? Sure? This reader isn't on your continent, you know...

Janiece said...

Mavro, you're not my only reader who's not in North America. It'll come steerage, but it'll get there.

Mmmm, strawberry. I got one piece of toast from the last batch before it disappeared before I could get a second taste. Mmmm, me me me me.
