Maria. I just met a girl named Maria.

Oh my. If you don't have internet friends, you should really go get some, because they are the awesomest people ever. Not the stalkers, the nice ones, of course. They are super lovely and give you nice presents for no reason! I came home from SD to find a package on my doorstep from the lovely and talented Maria. It was no ordinary gift. It was a "Best of the Replacements" cd and letterpress cards with my name on them. There was a note that simply said, "I know you have been wanting this cd." Gosh. And it's not even my birthday! Doesn't it just make you want to give her hugs?

In an effort to pay forward this generosity, I revive the great justJENN giveaway tradition. Seeing as how I will be busy all week cooking for this shower, I'm assuming blog postings will be few. (Yeah right, I never shut up.) Therefore, I am giving away one of the mighty fine - custom shower favors - to you! That's right, your name will be on it and everything.

How do you win this custom gift? Just leave a comment in this here post. I dunno. Tell me a secret. Tell me your nickname. Tell me why you come here everyday. Or just delurk and say hi. It's worth it. I've had this blog for about 3-1/2 years now, (Good lord) and I have met some great people because of it. Hey...thanks for reading.

Winner to be picked by random drawing at the end of the week. So rock on you 'anonymous' out there.

**More comic con pics, here.

Hey! I think I'm first (good enough reason to be the winner!?) but I'm also delurking to say I've been reading you for about 12 months. Love your posts, crack me up at work! All the cooking, craft and music references.

Cheers all the way from Australia.

Hi Jenn,

I'll just say hi because I already won the last great give-away, which really was great, by the way.

I know it's not fair to enter again!

Hey Jenn-
I've been reading your post for a while - you're too funny girl! I'm from very HOT Oahu and a big 80's fan... I was a huge Duran fan back in the day (yikes - did i say that!)and I still listen to a bunch of Erasure and Cure - in between the Raffi for my kids...

I guess I never formally introduced myself. I just started leaving comments here and there! Rude! So, um, hi!

I just crack up daily reading your blog and wish I could remember some of the quotes that you bust out.

Sushi - is that my legacy? Juicing a lemon? I should win the Nobel Prize.

Leslie - YES.

Dee - there is NO shame in being a Duran fan. Just ask Jodi. There IS shame in being a Raffi fan. Make the switch to Wiggles. I will be in Oahu in about a month. You can stalk me then.

Ok, so did I win?

I can't remember if I got here through Nanette or Jen's blog, but I was pretty much hooked right away. Now, especially so...since I know your a Comic Con & Resentments fan. Not enough Resentment fans anymore. :)

You are awesome.

Since no ones leaving a secret, I'll be the first.

I once accidentally set my hair on fire in the middle of a department store, (wait there's more) but didn't realize it until my friend chased me down and started smacking my head.

There is absolutely NO shame in being a Duran fact I still am and one of the best moments to happen in my life was just a year and a half ago when I finally met Nick Rhodes (for 3 seconds) and shook his hand!

Okay, for a a child I accidentally stepped on a baby bird that my friends and I had "rescued" and brought into the house. Devastating for an animal lover like me.

I come here everyday because you rock. You're super funny, talented and have great taste in music. Plus, I have to keep checking to see when the next JustJENN giveaway will be. :)

I've also tried some of your recipes and they are always a hit.

Please disqualify me from the gifts since I have won recently but I come here because I love your sense of humor, your parenting style, the way you look in a t shirt and of course the OG.

ooh - i can do a secret! this is of course duran related. In the 7th grade myself and 3 friends stood in front of Longs Drugs in Mililani and petitioned to get Duran to come to Hawaii.

Stop laughing.

Wow, who knew that the Replacements weren't just some one-hit wonder band. Though, I can't seem to think of any songs other than that 500 Miles song.

I come here because you make me laugh! (In a good way!).

I'm going with the nickname thing -my nickname is Bigil. The reason for this? About 10 years ago, when name necklaces were big over here my sister Roxanne somehow ended up with two. She decided she only wanted 'Rox' on the necklace, whereas I wanted 'Abigail' rather than my usual 'Abby' (this was pre-librarian days). So, my sister donated the A's, which meant I had to go to the shop to buy... B, I, G, I, L. Bigil! My sister laughed at this for about a week and to this day I am still known as Bigil. I even get post addressed to Bigil. Oh dear.

I come here for the mentions of Keanu, tales about OG, all the creativity, love for "The Office" (have you been checking out the webisodes, btw?) and the blog entry titles.

And yes, please disqualify me for the contest. Glad you like the stuff.

Re: Jen's comment, how can you say that about THE REPLACEMENTS?

I like Jenn because she's the only one who gets all my jokes.

I like Jenn because she keeps leaving comments about how some of the stupid things I say would make totally wicked band names.

I like Jenn because I totally want a copy of that Replacements CD.

And a shower favor with my name on it.

Well, it's proll'y too late to enter the Contest, but I did want to tell you... You got me soooo hooked on The Office! I read over and over how much you love the show and a couple of months ago, I finally watched it, and died laughing. Now I got my husband hooked and we're taping all the reruns this summer!

Love it!!

ps... The shower you've got planned is darling!! Great ideas.

I'm commenting because I just discovered your stationery and have, in one week, already made two large orders because it is so cute. Thank you for being so rad about the stationery and notepads, and your shower looked awesome!
