That thing I do and.........A Giveaway of the Debbie kind!

The 'mingos are living dangerously today...they obviously are not familiar with the sparrows at feeding time.
************

A few weeks ago, I posted my 500th post and I had plans to have a giveaway or something of that manner to celebrate.  Well, here we are, post #515 and guess what?
I think it's finally time.
Since I'm all about passing on fun stuff that I find here in Japan
(remember the zori giveaway?), I'm going to do it again...but not zori...something else...
I have put together some things for 2 lucky readers that I think you're going to get a kick out of.
Here we go......
There are 4 items that will be given away in a very tightly wrapped bundle (weighing less than 2,000 grams so as not to cost the proverbial arm & leg)....
*a noren (both have traditional Nagasaki designs on them...one is a kite design unique to Nagasaki and the other has a Dragon Dance picture from one of our biggest festivals here in the city)
*a small towel made from soy fibers (great for helping to get rid of dry skin...we use ours in the bath)
*a t-shirt with funny English ('cause everyone needs at least one of those!!)
and....
*a pair of your very own Miracle Sox!!
(You can read about those HERE if you don't know what I'm talking about!)

So...here's the plan....
You want some of these goodies...
leave a comment.
That's it.
A comment will get you a chance to win.
How easy is that, huh?
And since I don't accept annonymous comments, you can leave a comment over at the post on that "social networking site" (that rhymes with Space Mook)..you know...if you're my friend (^-^).
See....I'm pretty easy to work with here!!

You have until next Saturday...MY next Saturday night...May 8... to leave a comment here...
You might want to tell me which noren you'd like to have...that would make it easier, you know...
when you win!!
And yes, as I have mentioned before, I am a comment ho, so...
1 comment = 1 chance
3 comments = 3 chances

Are you feeling lucky?

What?? No posters of IKKO??? Ah, well, maybe next time;-)

I'm still so happy with my sandals...dare I be greedy for more? You better believe it!

Congratulations on 500...I've been reading since somewhere in the 200s, I think, and have enjoyed every single one!

A Noren would be rockin.....miracle sox even better....but just knowing that you are bloggin....that is the best giveaway of all! (Still...I am a prize ho....so.....ENTER ME!)

Shellie said...

Oh how exciting, yet another give away. I would love to win all of the goodies you are offering. The mircle sox sound so inviting, Keagan would luv the Noren and t-shirt. We could call that one a trade. Have you gotten any of the items from us yet? Dave built me the doll case and I have a place for the doll from you just waiting. Hope you receive many entries on the contest...it is always fun.

I hit the mother lode--getting to read your blog and hitting it on a contest! Wahoo! I need some miracle sox. And something to miracle away my thighs. Do they have a miracle girdle for that?

Luv the new pics of flowers at the top of your page. So pretty and refreshing.

Well, given the fact that I escaped Nashville, TN hours before a 500 year flood, I think I must be pretty lucky. Throw my name in the hat.

And congrats on 500 posts!

Happy 515!
