If anyone happened to be watching CNN this morning (the part that was NOT about the stock market debacle) maybe you saw a blurb about the Vote glass program being hosted by a certain beer emporium chain. Every time you buy either an Obama or McCain glass you cast a vote for that candidate, and here's the best part: you can vote as many times as you like!

I happen to have connections with this establishment and personally know the designer of the glasses, so I decided to hold my very first contest giveaway and whoever wins gets to pick which glass they would like to have and I will mail it out first thing. Now here's the best part: if you put my link on your blog I will send you both glasses, or two of the same one.

Just complete the following sentence for your chance to win:

If I could change my name I would change it to__________________

The winner will be on Election Day. Good luck everybody!


  1. If I could change my name, I would change it to either Skippy Noodlebaker-Bananahamock or Mabel Beauregard because...well, just because. Skippy Noodlebaker-Bananahamock is simply a bass-ass name. And Mabel Beauregard CLEARLY has money, a mansion and someone to fan her when it's hot. Either way, it's more interesting that the one I've got.

    My sister, when she was 8 or 9, after a unit on ancestors in school, insisted that she would someday change her name to Tinkelsven Kazanski Leganegger. I still think she should. It would be PERFECT for her current profession. Which is costume designer. Not stripper. I think. Could go either way, really.

    PS. This is the longest comment ever. Yet it still has no point. You're welcome.

  2. And thank you Miss T for the link on your blog about my fantastic, amazing contest! You are fantastic and amazing, too!

  3. of course, my dear! Now if I could just figure out how to "follow" you so that you show up on my dashboard, we'd be in business!

  4. If I could have changed my name was I was like 10 or 11, I wanted it to be Francesca. I think because it was the name of someone in a Judy Bloom book I had read, and thought it was a fantastic name that no one else had.

    But my parents vetoed the idea.

    Also, the one time in life when us girls have the opportunity for a name change (marriage), I couldn't. Because I was a Smith & I married a Smith.

    So there you go.

  5. and I don't have a blog to link you to. but you know i lurve you to pieces!!

    (i blog vicariously thru you & bj)

  6. If I could change my name, I would change it to ANYTHING THAT DOESN'T MEAN A WIDE LOAD BEARING TRUCK IN EUROPE.

    Because that Has Been My Cross To Bear.

    Thank You Mom.

  7. Miss T I have added a Followers button. Thanks mucho for the suggestion.

    I changed my name, or rather hyphenated it, when I got married the first time around. After the Big D I changed it back to my maiden name and that's where it stays. Paco was fine with my not taking his surname and frankly, I like being back to me. Not to mention how much dang trouble it is to change your name.

  8. hee hee lorrie - that is soooo funny - now I will forever have that pic in my mind - up until now I had not made the connection.

    Like you Raice after divorce number one I went back to my maiden name and for marriage number two just stayed me - it feels a whole lot better and besides I am prepared now if ever ...

    As to the question hmmmm. I fancy something vintage but risque ... Like the 'nortorius' (?) women of the 1930s and 40s who ended up on postcards you sent to sailors ...

    so maybe Virgina Hamilton-Smith .. or Lucy Victoria Hammertongs ... yep that is it :)

    And ps if I win I will save you on postage and you can send the glass to Lorrie as I am still alughing bout the truck - hee hee le

  9. I love Hammertongs! Can I steal that one? LOL!

  10. If I could change my name, I would change it to Greta, just because I think it's a nice name. :-)

    I'm linking you!

  11. Lol at wide-load Lorrie.

  12. If I could change my name I would change it to Edith Osgood Nerney
    because it sounds important.

  13. If I could change my name it would be just the spelling of my current name. Now when people read my name they say it wrong. I blame my mother being on drugs when I was born so she didn't know how to spell.
