Congratulations to Joanne for winning the $50 American Express gift card. There was more than one Joanne who entered the contest. The winner is Joanne who drank cough syrup to get high in high school and puked it all up. If she only knew then, that doing so would later provide her with a random fact about herself allowing her to win $50. Joanne please email me at TwentyFourAtHeart@yahoo.com with your address and I will get your gift card in the mail to you. Congratulations!!
Thank you to everyone who entered! It was a great contest. You sent in some really interesting random facts. Some of you have websites of your own and I will try to visit as many of them as I can over the next couple weeks. I really enjoy hosting contests. If any of you have some creative ideas for future contests I'd love to hear them. I'm currently very behind on email responses, but I'm reading everything you send to me and will hopefully be caught up soon.
A few of you emailed in questions about some of my random facts. I will use some of my random facts as writing prompts for future posts. The first such post is right below this one. Why was I truant so often in high school? One of the primary reasons is explained below.
