I don't care if you're ugly or you're skanky or you're small, I just wanna do something special for ya'll.

I don't know why you guys come here, but I'm glad you do. So if you are of the lurking sort, now might be a good time to deee-lurk, if you will.

My birthday is Monday, and I am having a giveaway, yay! I have been wanting to do this for a while, but I figure now's the best time! I love to get presents, but giving them is just as fun. Which is probably why I'm always down with making party favors.

I have two prizes this time! A set of cooking stuff, all that I bought just for this giveaway (on my many trips to Surfas) of cooking items that I love, use often, and talk about a lot. A sili-brush, mini spoonula, fiberglass spoon, mini measuring cup, pinch bowl (like Alton Brown uses), and a few other things. Er, tough sh*t if you don't like red - hey, it's free.

The other prize is a little bag o' cute. All things cute, who doesn't love cute? Communists? I dunno.
Just leave a comment, that's it! A winner will be picked at random - you have til Sunday night. See ya!

Happy (early) Birthday! Do you have to work on Monday? Randomly, I'm taking that day off to get my hair done. It'll be a good day all around! I'll have a cupcake to celebrate. :)

Happy (early) Birthday - I come here because the first time my 8 year old ever cleared a plate that wasn't loaded with fries and chicken nuggets was when I made a chiken recipe of yours, so I come back to keep her well fed. :)

I always wonder how to get more comments, so if I can't make my writing better, I should just give shit away! Awesome! I didn't realize your birthday is Monday. It seems a lot of people have that day off, including me!

P.S. Don't include me in the drawing. I won't use the cooking stuff and I already have that cute little pea bag.

Greetings. I am officially de-lurking. Happy B-day! I'm jealous of people who don't have their birthdays around holidays. Mine was December 31 and always got screwed so I changed it to July 15! Got some really cool stuff last month, wish I had done it sooner.

Three of my favorite things from your blog are
1. the Hello Kitty Mortal Kombat video. That some remains in my "workout" playlist
2. Gingerbread bats. Gingerbread is my specialty and I never thought to include it in my Halloween repertoire
3. your Somen Salad recipe, now if only I could find the fish cake.

Second de-lurking...
I read your blog daily, love the baking and your designs.

Shameless sucking-up now ensues:
You are so awesome and funny and talented!

It is true though!
Even if I never win any stuff i will still keep reading. And ogling your cool stationary... I have a total stationary fetish!

I love new fun and funky pens and paper... there are a couple of shops I just have to avoid as I can't be trusted in there!

I am also thinking of starting a gift registry at my favourite kitchenware shop... for my birthdays and Christmas. Is that wrong?
