The Excitement Is Overwhelming, aka Thanks For Coming Out

I can't believe it! I won something! I actually won!

That's right, guys! I won an Ipod shuffle!! Awesome
Stesha over at Hot Chocolate Caramel Mocha had a contest, or something, I don't actually remember what it was that I somehow entered. That gives you some idea of how fried my brain is. Anyway, I won this Ipod, and I was so excited when I found out that I almost wet myself and had multiple orgasms, all at the same time. Now, that's excitement.

Before I go on with this sad and totally self-centred post, please visit Stesha and give her some smiles.

I think I screamed when Stesha emailed me to tell me I had won. Mr. Handsome was sitting on one side of me, and Em on the other, and when I told them, they looked at me like I was ... well ... nuts.

And then I got upset because they started making fun of my utter excitement and my disbelief that I had actually won something, and that 'something' being an actual Ipod!

Both Mr. Handsome and Em scoffed that it wasn't really an Ipod because it was an Ipod Shuffle, which I guess means it's the lowest of the low.

"It's basically an MP3 player," Mr. Handsome explained to me.

"But it's still an Ipod!" I exclaimed, defending my claim to victory.

"It's no big deal," Em added, she of the 'real Ipod'. Whatever.

All I wanted was someone -- anyone -- to be excited for me.

And no one was.

That's Furry on the right, pigging out on the larger lettuce leaf.

Except these guys. They smiled, and I'm sure I heard a "Yahoo!" from Furry. She wants me to put 'Muskrat Love' on it, which, of course, I will.

Well! I am happy for you! I would be just as excited. They just don't "get" bloggers. Your Guinnies are adorable! I love them

Well, I think it's wonderful you won something and an Ipod shuffle is better than no Ipod shuffle. Congrats!!

*waving madly* ...I'm excited for you ..all the way from Australia!

I've never won anything, not even a dollar in the lottery or a cake in a cake walk, so I'm very envious of you! I have the ipod shuffle - it came free with our cable connection (does that count as winning something?). I listen to it at bedtime when I can't sleep, and then lay awake listening to 61 years of my favorite tunes. It's simple and uncomplicated, right up my alley. Enjoy yours!

I love my ipod Shuffle. Sheesh! Family. They just don't get it sometimes.
I'm happy for you! It's wonderful to win a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g! Looks like your dog is surprised too. A happy kind of surprised.

I don't know what an ipod is but if I won it I'd be tickled about it!
I LOVE to win things.....I came in today to a prize from a fellow blogger! Blogland is wonderful!

Enjoy your IPOD shuffle, you'll have a lot of fun picking out music to put on it! I SLEEP with mine when Roy is in the hospital so that I don't hear all the hospital noises at night!

Have a wonderful weekend~

Hey Jim, soo, "Ipod" is actually, "iPod", lowercase "I".
Just throwing that out there.

Good for you! I hope to win too someday.
Congrats on the big win. Can I admit something, though? I think I am the only person in the world who has never actually seen an Ipod. Ok, maybe not the only one in the world... but I bet the only one in America!
