Tomorrow morning, bright and early, I’m driving to New Orleans with my mother and aunt to meet up with my cousin who’s flying in from Seattle for a little sight-seeing. I’ll be doing some (ahem) setting research, while the ladies and Cousin Dave have fun (wink-wink IRS). Oh, stop it! NOLA is my favorite US city. Any trip there is going to inspire a story. I’m taking my camera and notebook!
While I’m away, I have guests to keep you entertained:
Tuesday — Kaily Hart
Wednesday — Cathryn Cade
Thursday — Denise Golinowski
Friday — Paige Tyler
To help you decide to come back here every day to meet my guests, I’m running a new contest!
Tater Red’s Grab Bag & Elvis Contest
What can you win?
Every time I go to another of my favorite cities, Memphis, I hit this little shop on Beale street called Tater Red’s. I always buy the mystery brown bag filled with kitschy goodies. Here is the contents of one such bag (the stuffed King Daddy Blues Rat doll, a KDBR magnet, a pretty LOVE makeup bag, a strange monkey sitting at a Wall Street desk, a pack of playing cards, and a Tater Red’s address book. I added a magnetic Elvis doll for you to stick on your fridge and dress in new outfits.
Come on, you know you want my junk!
What do you have to do to win?
Post a comment on any blog posting from today until the contest ends. Each entry counts as another chance to win!
This contest ends in two weeks, April 24th!!
Today, I’m going to do a little shopping, pack, but definitely no writing, or very little. I am going to use this week to clear my head. Lots on my plate. Maybe more coming.
In the meantime, how about answering a question for your first entry in my Tater Red’s Grab Bag & Elvis Contest?
On a scale of one to ten (with one being not at all and ten being very much so), how superstitious are you?
I love brown bag specials. Every time I see one I too must buy just to see what’s inside. Even at the dollar store I can’t pass up their brown bag rack. I hope you have a blast sight seeing.
What a great prize. I am a 5 on the superstition scale.
I’m probably about a 6.5. I can be superstitious, but try not to get carried away.
PS – I so want the Elvis for my refrigerator.
I’m about a 6 on the superstitious scale. I don’t freak out about really anything, but I also wouldn’t purposely walk under a latter, or if I spill salt, a little goes over the shoulder, just in case. 🙂
I am very superstitious…8 on scale. I made a voodoo doll of my stepbrother once and stuck it in the butt with a pin. 😈 I heard a scream from outside and he had fallen off his bike and landed on his keester. Scared the crap outta me! So yeah, I BELIEVE!
Brown bag deals are great. I love doing those.
Superstitious…um I would say a 7. I guess it kinda depends on the situation.
Thanks for the contest.
I’m probably a 6. I agree with Melissa that it depends on the situation. Safe travels, Delilah.
I love buying brown bag specials. I’m about a 3 on the superstitious scale. I don’t freak out about anything, I just don’t think about what bad might happen. You would think I would be more superstitious with everything my mom told me while growing up, but I’m not.
I’m also very superstitious! I also love Brown Bag Specials… I’m also not very lucky but tend to do pretty good here!! wink, wink…
