And now you're asking yourself why I never shared this information with you so that you could obsessively register to win a bottle of body oil?! And I did. Back in February, I shared the link with you here: http://culturednativity.blogspot.com/2009/02/confessions-of-shopaholic.html
You just obviously value your time and your self worth more than I do. You know for a fact what I am daring to deny: No one wins anything in these silly contests and the winners are never announced and the prizes not awarded but rather absorbed into employee benefits and Christmas Bonuses for those Lucky Employees (a double entendre, don't you think?).
When have you ever met anyone who said, "Hey, I just won a new Ford Explorer at Vons today!" Never.
"I opened a can of Coke this afternoon and it exploded with confetti and then a voice recording announced that I was the Grand Prize winner of $100,000!!!!" Never.
What about the McDonald's Monopoly Game? Never.
It's all a farce. Myth. Something the government obviously hasn't the time to regulate. "Arrest those Lucky Magazine Editor's! They stole my Kate Spade Clutch prize!"
I am preparing to go through withdrawals after tomorrow's final registration day. 45 days of solid morning registrations (like sun salutations). I'll be plummeting to rock bottom this time tomorrow, cold sweats, nausea. An absolute mess until I find my next fix, a new registration form, another contest. I heard HGTV has a MILLION DOLLAR HOME Give Away, maybe I'll check that out...
