Fancy-Free Friday GRAND FINALE!


(Please follow the instructions above.)
Great! Now onto our awesome giveaway!
*You are entering a play sequence. Imagination REQUIRED.*
“This is it!” Willy Wonka screams, running around his laboratory of odd-looking gadgets in sheer elation. “When I combine the perpendicular cylinder of Wyombi juice with that of gravitation, adding a gallon of high fructose corn syrup--and a sprig of mint--the molecules of combined ingredients set up the perfect modus operandi!” he shouts excitedly, glancing over at me.

I, Camryn, stand there, staring at his wild eyes, which are protected behind thick plastic goggles that make Mr. Wonka’s eyes look enormous. When he blinks, the iris’s of his eyes bug out and I wonder if I am staring at a relative of the Barn owl.

I have not a clue what the heck Mr. Wonka is talking about. I came here asking if he’d donate three golden tickets for our grand finale. Being a gentleman and good host, Mr. Wonka offered me chocolate.

Duh. I’m a girl, come on, how could I refuse?

“That would be great,” I smile, anticipating the world-famous flavors that garnered him Hollywood attention, including several already produced movies. Johnny Depp, most recently, even portrayed his character on the big screen. How flattering would that be?

Hershey has nothing on him.

Mr. Wonka jumps from his chair, clicks his heels like an old, haggish-looking Dorothy, and starts turning on gadgets in his “work room”, gadgets that look like they had been stolen from a Fisher Price laboratory.

Somehow, I am forgotten. The “mad scientist” takes over and he begins rattling off scientific formulations, reminding me why I never bonded with my science textbooks from high school.

His frizzy, wild hair falls over his brow as he spouts off equations like he’s recounting joyful childhood memories--like throwing a water balloon down someone’s pants. But that water balloon is filled with methodical mumbo jumbo—that makes no sense to me—and it makes my head spin.

“Uh, Mr. Wonka,” I say, wanting to remind him that I’m still here. “About the three golden tickets for our Mean Mommy Grand Finale giveaway?”

He looks up. A lock of untamed hair fall over his owl-like eyes. He suddenly remembers I’m still standing there. “Ah, yes!” He dashes across the room, scattering papers across his desk, opening drawers. In moments he returns, nearly in a skip, and he hands me THREE chocolate bars.

“The names have been picked. The awards have been chosen,” he tells me.

“Awesome! Thanks for the golden tickets!”

I turn and walk out. Right now, I have THREE golden tickets stashed in THREE chocolate bars to award the winners of our last and final giveaway.
(If you don't win--stay tuned till the end...there's something for everyone!)
I have here in my hands--the winner's names.
Cue the drumroll………

Since I can’t mail chocolate—it would melt—allow me to open your chocolate bar for you. No, no, don't thank me. My pleasure.


*sniff, sniff*

“Ahhh…..” the smell of quality-made REAL chocolate, none of that waxy crap.

*savoring……chewing slowly…..taking another bite……savoring…..enjoying……
neiner, neiner...*

I find the golden ticket. It was easy—I just had to eat my chocolate first!

The winner of the Twilight Bracelet is…..I unfold the golden ticket and it reads:

(Feel free to copy and paste. Print it out, put it on your wall, your desk…..paste it on your blog. This golden ticket it yours, woman!!)

And the winner of the blue and brown bag is…..Oh! wait! I get to do it all over again!
Hoo-yah! Where’s that chocolate bar…..
Hold on a sec…..

*Taking bite……chewing……savoring…….entering heaven………licking my fingers……hips groaned…who cares….this is worth it….5 minutes from now I’ll be sobbing like a baby…*

The second winner, as I unfold the golden ticket, the winner of the Blue and Brown tote is…

Congratz girl!!
(Again, feel free to copy and paste or print it out. Tape it to your car window so that EVERYONE can see that you won a golden ticket! Okay, I’m not serious, but I would LOVE to see a picture of someone’s reaction. That would be an awesome "Kodak" moment…)

Now for the third and last winner. That means….a 3rd chocolate bar.
*evil grin*

Bring. It. On.


The scale wails a familiar tune as I take my first bite. It sings, “Oompa Loompa Doodalie Do….”
That’s it! I am NEVER weighing myself on Willy Wonka’s weight scale again!!
Turning the wrapper over, I unfold the golden ticket.
The winner of the Twilight bag is….

Congratz Shannon! And Congratz to all our winners!!!
Don’t forget to celebrate over a good chocolate bar! *wink, wink*
