Here it is! The moment you have been waiting for! It is time once again for…
A WIN A DOODLE CONTEST!
IF YOU WIN, I WILL DRAW WHATEVER YOU WANT!
Don’t believe me? I have proof.
Past winners have asked for a Caffeine Gnome…
…a Protective Great Dane…
…a Yoga Practitioner Petting an Angel Dog…
…a Larcenous Cow…
…and a Raven Shapeshifter (whatever that is).
Also a gang of unseemly hooligans forced me to draw this guy:
So yes, I will draw whatever you want.
Well, I do have one exception; I will draw whatever you want provided that what you want is not pervy. I am a children’s book author, bucko, so take your dirty, filthy business someplace else!
HOW TO WIN
The winning name will be drawn at random. The draw-er is this guy.
HOW TO ENTER
To get your name in the drawing, leave a list of five words in the comments section below. They can be any words at all, but – and this is important – the words cannot be completely random. Each word must be connected to you in some way.
For example, here are my five words:
Chip ‘n’ Putt
Here is how these five words are connected to me:
Capybara: The world largest rodent. Petting one is on my bucket list.
Bert: My favorite Muppet. If Bert was real, I am convinced he and I would be best friends.
Skipping: When I was in elementary school, my gym teacher called my mom to tell her some bad news: I was unable to skip. Mom’s reply: “Should I care?”
Juneau: Ellen and I went to Alaska on our honeymoon. We should’ve gone somewhere else.
Chip ‘n’ Putt: When I was unemployed in my 20s (which was distressingly often) I would round up my other unemployed friends and play rounds at the mini golf course.
See what I mean? The connection between you and the words doesn’t need to be deep or profound, it just needs to exist.
So give me five words for a chance to win!
HOW TO INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING
Want me to stuff the ballot box in your favor? Fiiine. I’ll add two more ballots if you announce this contest on your blog and link back to this page. That’s three chances to win!
Don’t have a blog? No problem. I’ll give you one extra ballot if you announce this contest on your Facebook page or Twitter feed. (Be sure to post links in the comments.)
As I mentioned, the winner of the drawing will get a custom made, one-of-a-kind, Mike Allegra doodle suitable for framing! Woo!
But the winner will also get something else:
An original, one-of-a-kind, Mike Allegra-penned story! This story will contain all five of the words you supplied to enter this contest. I can’t promise you a good story, but I will do my best.
So do me a favor and choose fun words, OK?
Your entry is due on or before Tuesday, April 5. The winner of the drawing will be announced on Wednesday, April 6.
That’s it! Give me five words and get going!
236 Replies to “Win A Doodle! Woo!”
All fine words! And what, I must ask, is your personal connection to “worm?”
I’m in! A Mike Allegra original doodle apologue is too tempting an offer!
Hmm – WordPress thou hast deleted my “and” with its fancy punctuation. Blast!
A fine alliterative list. I can already imagine a gripping battle between a squirrel and a scorpion. (Guess who wins!)
Oh, and I had to look up “sautoir.”
Five words for you…..Hoist, Green Flash, Bach, Poetically, Santa Cruz…..I know that the words are not singular, but without each other they would be meaningless.
Excellent, Bonnie. You’re in the competition.
And it sounds like you have a story to tell with these words. Would you care to do so?
Oh why not, I’m a sucker for doodles.
sprite (the fairy, not the drink)
Welcome, Desiree! This blog loves suckers for doodles.
And how, may I ask, do you have a connection to a sprite?
Oh, this should be fun!
• German Shepherd.
Every pet my father ever owned was a male and female (Retired K-9) Shepherd named King and Queen.
• Chicken Alfredo
… because it’s fit for a King. (I love it!)
… at least a pot a day.
I love things from yesteryear.
I would share on Facebook, however, as you know, I grounded myself from Facebook until I lose 5 pounds. (I’m calling it The 5-pound check-in point.)
Hey! I’m giving myself a little tough love.
You’ve got time. If you can starve off five pounds before next Tuesday, you’ll get another ballot!
I like your list, for I, too, am a proponent of coffee, antiques, daydreaming, shepherds, and pots of coffee.
You’re good people, Jamie.
Yay! Sounds like fun.
Here’s my five words:
And here’s the link to my tweet about the contest: https://twitter.com/carrie_rubin/status/715223885248143360
Best of luck to everyone!
Oops. Make that here ARE my five words. Playdough brain today.
It’s not too late to replace “otoscope” with “Play-Doh,” by the way.
Hehe, no can do. I thought it would be an interesting one to work into the story should I win. (But I now see I spelled Play-Doh wrong. No doubt that will decrease my chance of winning.)
Your misspelling does indeed decrease your chance of winning. Otoscope further decreases it.
Those otoscopes will get you every time.
Oh, so *that’s* an otoscope! I thought they were called “eye-lookie-things!”
Well, that works too. Oto for the ear, ophthalmo for the eye. And, well, you know what a scope is. Surely this new piece of knowledge gets me back in the contest’s good graces?
To the dictionary!
Have fun! I almost put ophthalmoscope instead, but I thought I’d be nice.
This is cool. Right, here goes:
Over and out.
I’ll bet you have a story for “goulash,” amirite?
No, damn. But I should.
Well, go get one. I’ll wait.
My five words:
I WANT to WIN this! So I cannot in all good conscience wish everyone good luck. :-0
Not sure how to prove I tweeted this contest like Carrie did, but it looks like this: A free doodle contest over at one of my favorite blogs – heylookawriterfellow – https://mikeallegra.com/2016/03/30/win-a-doodle-woo-2/ …
You don’t have to wish anyone good luck. You may be unsportsmanlike if you are also civil. So you’re good.
And what is your connection to cuckoo clocks?
My guy and I love to visit Switzerland (in the green luscious summer, not the snowy white winter). Our first stay in Lucerne over a decade ago, we bought a Swiss cuckoo clock, which has followed us to three different homes in the past 6 years. She (Corinne the clock) cuckoos as beautifully as when we bought her. Now, our little grandkids just stand in the room and stare at her, unmoving, waiting for Corinne to appear. Great babysitter. Ha Ha.
There’s something kind of magical about cuckoo clocks. My aunt has jillions of them and all the kids in my extended family are transfixed by all the cuckoo-ness.
And OK. You got two ballots!
Corinne, and I, thank you!
Hooligans, you say?! Why, sir, I disagree!! Only fair-minded citizens of this great country would *force* you to draw the cutest salamander (named Sully, btw) the world has ever seen!!!
Here’s my link to Tweet: https://twitter.com/Jill_SF/status/715255867784896512
Also shared this on the Dogpatch Writers Collective FB page. Let’s see if those hooligans strike again!
Just posted on the Dogpatch blog, too. Sir, be prepared for the onslaught!
I’ll be ready. And that’s three ballots for you!
Oh, I love the word kit-n-kaboodle.
What’s the significance of it?
It’s one of my mom’s words. She’d say things like “Can you throw in the whole kit-n-caboodle?” or “Do you want the whole kit-n-caboodle?”
My mom’s favorite words were “candy ass” as in “Don’t be a…”
I’ll blog on Friday which will also show up on FB, Twitter, Linkedin, etc 🙂 Too fun
Hmmm. Okay, here goes.
And you shall get three ballots!
So what is your personal connection to zombies? Have you drafted a zompocalypse home survival plan, too?
I do have several important zombie apocaplype skills from all my years living in the woods, Mike.
You are a remarkable woman, D. Wallace.
Wow, this would be a great way to end a bad week–or a great way to begin a better week. Okay, here are my five words.
Just a minute, I’m thinking . .
Reblogged on Kid Lit Reviews. http://kid-lit-reviews.com/2016/03/30/win-a-doodle-woo/
Aaaand ya got three ballots!
I sure know your personal connection to “rescue” and “pup-tastic.” But I am curious about “promising.” Care to share?
Promising. I’m a big believer in keeping one’s promise and a handshake being as good as a paper contract. As for the pups, my promise to them is to help them become dogs once more, to find them loving, safe homes, and to love them unconditionally until that day arrives for each one. I personally adopt for life, regardless of the problems, any health needs or issues, and the eventual death. I promise to be there for all of it, fully engaged.
I am actually on my second life. At age 39 I was in a coma I was not to have survived, but surprised the docs. So promise is a new life, a second chance. (I decided to count my age beginning with that new year. lol Unfortunately, that meant going through those rough teen years a second time, but the terrible-twos was fun.)
X-Ray. Before becoming a social worker (in my second life) I had been an x-ray technologist. Grumpy, is for my new little guy, a grumpy chihuahua who has such terrible dreams he growls himself awake, always followed by a teeth snap at whatever invisible force was terrifying him.
Sorry for the lengthy post.
Never apologize for a lengthy comment. This was fascinating. It sounds like you have a memoir in you.
Oh, I have a lot in me, just not sure it’s a memoir.
Pish tosh. Get writing.
What fun Mike, what fun! (But why isn’t the one you did for me in the gallery of past ones, huh?).
And the link to my twitter post about it – https://twitter.com/VanessaJ2011/status/715290881780264964
Two ballots for you!
I find the word “belong” intriguing. How is it significant?
I’ve always felt that one of the most significant factors in being happy in life is to feel you belong – belong with the people you are with, belong where you live, belong in the job you’re in etc. so it’s just an important life word for me.
Oh, and don’t take your missing doodle personally, my friend. I like to change it up.
Ok, I’ll try and bounce back.
My 5 words are:
Dance – I’ve been dancing since I was 3 years old and I can honestly say it is one of my passions and makes me feel alive.
Food – for someone so small I’m always eating or always talking about it. Where does it all go? — Your guess is as good as mine.
Education – I love to learn. I will be a graduate student soon and I can’t wait to get back in a classroom.
Fire – A combination of my two favorite colors yellow and red; this also can represent passion or intensity for something and I like to think I am a very intense person about certain things in my life.
Noodles – I love pasta which probably comes from my obsession with Italy which is where I hope to visit one day.
OK, Qiana, you’re in the competition!
As a fellow with an Italian last name, I wholeheartedly support any obsession with pasta. Take care and mangia!
Reblogged this on Kid Lit Reviews and commented:
Hi everyone. these past seven days have not been good, being down with a couple of viral ails. I am happy to say I am feeling better and will be posting reviews very, very soon (aiming for tomorrow). I did miss one rather important date for me and this site. March 28th was my FIVE year anniversary here at Kid Lit Reviews (which means I have been reviewing children’s books for eight years. where does the time fly off too?). Kind of a big deal.
So, to (post) CELEBRATE, I will be offering 5 books to 5 readers. The winners will choose from a list of books ranging from board books to middle grade novels. Some may be ARC’s but all will be terrific. It will be the winners choice from a provided list of titles, starting with the first name pulled (by Random.org).
The most recent winner, Patricia Tilton, who won signed copies of The Shark Whisperer and The Shark Rider, the first two books in the Tristian Hunt and the Sea Guardians will son receive those books. Patricia, I apologize for the delay).
This really is a reblog for your amazing doodle art offer. It just has a little post before your post.
I thank you for the reblog!
Wooo exciting!! Here are my words:
May the force be with me 😉
Are you an SAT tutor, Tamara?
No I just like words 😉
As do I. Good luck!
Also I thought I should make it interesting for you, just in case I win!
I see Tamara is some wordsmith!
Here are my puny words:
Fruit of the vine
😀 😀 😀
A fine five words. Your name goes in the hat.
And by “fruit of the vine” are you referring to grapes or the wonderful beverage that pressed and aged grapes makes?
Ha ha. Fruit of the vine is definitely the beverage.
Hammock, Bubbles, Books, Soup, Walkies
OK, you’re in. Now define “walkies.”
Walking the dog, except we don’t own one.
But you wish to own one?
Nope. We’re guinea piggers, but they don’t get that leash thing.
Guinea pigs! I just knew you were a wonderful person.
In fact, I think a guinea pig doodle would be a grand addition to your collection. Let’s the winner is of such sensible ilk.
As a former guinea pig owner, I have doodled many a piggie.
Time for Guinea Pigs on Parade. I’m sorely tempted to invest in a little squeaker. They’re amazing!
They are the finest pets ever.
And this is perhaps my favorite pig video ever.
I am so never going to win this, this time, but I am serious about my Doodle/Poem challenge. Don’t know about you, pal, but i LOVES me a challenge. You draw a rhinocerous riding a tricycle, blah blah blah and I will TOTALLY write you a poem about it. With my usual elan and ole and stuffs like that. Huh.
Well, you’re not gonna win with that attitude!
I do like the barter system you suggest. But I still think it would behoove you to ALSO gimme five words and give it the ol’ college try.
You got it!
Okay, I’m in. I like your doodles, and I like your contest ideas! 🙂
My words are:
Black cat (I live with the best one in the universe)
White dog (ditto)
Abalone (I wear it — a lot)
blueberries (my favorite food)
Atlantic Ocean (childhood favorite place)
Oh, and here’s the link to my tweet:
How’d you do that? I tweeted but didn’t know how to show Mike. This is great. 🙂
Wow. I need to check my notifications more often! Sorry about that. i just copied Mike’s URL into my Tweet, and then copied the URL from my Tweet back into my comment here. 🙂 Pointless info now, but perhaps will come in handy at some time in the future!
Info is never pointless! Thanks. 🙂
Two votes for you!
But wait a minute. You WEAR sea mollusks?
Only the shells. Forgot to mention that. 😉 Did I get disqualified by failing to check my WordPress notifications? I’m a babe in the WordPressWoods!
Nope. Your name just didn’t come up when the winner was drawn. I always make every effort to contact the winner. So no worries.
Oh, good. I think I’ve got everything set up now so that I get an email when someone replies to a comment I make on WP. I think. 😉
Coconut: my favourite scent. It reminds me of the beach.
Piña colada: my favourite drink when I think about going on holidays. Ironically, I seldom drink it in real life. I guess it means I need more holidays.
Fishstar: Beautiful animals. Again, they remind me of the beach.
Seahorse: So tiny and unique. I love them.
I see a beach-lover theme here.
But you only gave me four words! Got another one in you?
Here are my words 😀
Hope You like them!!
Five fine words, Sassy.
But — and I think I might regret asking — but what is the personal significance of “poops”?
Haha, my bird every time it sits on me it does a poop.
Flotsam, Check, Snort, Chicken, Garden.
Those are totally disparate words, but I’m a weird gal!
No “farts”? You disappoint me, Lauri.
Here are my words:
It sounds like you have a story for “homeless man”. Would you be willing to share?
Yes, there is an older man that stands outside of the Schuster Center and plays his saxophone before every Philharmonic, Broadway series, opera or ballet performance. His music is glorious and he always serenades me with a new song, because I always speak with him (7-8 yrs) and toss some money in his case. His dream is to be on that stage playing with the orchestra.
Oh, that is a great story. My boy has just taken up with the saxophone. I never knew “Ode To Joy” could sound so jazzy.
Yes, the saxophone can be a very jazzy instrument. Good for your son!
Comb (as on a chicken)
Horn (as in French – oui oui! 😉 )
Hound (as in dog (preferably Bassett))
Creativity (as in creativity. Er… Never mind. I’ll stop these parentheses soon (if I must (Dang)))
Your bestest friend ever, 😉
(Did you see how I didn’t use parentheses?) 😉
So “parentheses” is not one of your words, then?
And I must ask: What is your personal connection to hallucinations?
Ooh, this is interesting…..hmmm…..let’s give it a go.
I should have mentioned the tenacity will come into play when I’m convincing you to vacation in Muskoka. 😀
Trust me, it will happen. I don’t know when yet, but it will.
Knowing you through your blog, I can see how all of these words are a good fit.
Good luck in the contest, my friend!
There could be cupcakes involved if I win!! Just saying….
Bribery! For shame!
And, for the record, I am “for shame-ing” myself, for I would happily accept such a bribe.
You’re name goes in the hat, Bev!
And let me just say that Bernese puppies are the cutest puppies ev-ar!
The old college try: panther, dapper, samurai, flying pig, poetry.
There we go! Three ballots for you!
And if you lose, we shall discuss the rhino/tricycle thing. That kind of doodle is right up my alley.
Oooh…what fun…a doodle and a story!
birthdays, flying, cats, dogs and Easter eggs
You would have to throw “cats” in there, wouldn’t you?
I thought we were friends, Mrs. P!
It’s your story, create the ending you want…perhaps, dogs chasing cats who are stealing the Easter eggs.
And, I’ll bet you still haven’t read the King, the Mice and the Cheese?
I haven’t, but I shall.
Love your work! Here are my five:
* ragamuffin (didn’t see that one comin’ did ya?)
* Patches the cat
“Ragamuffin” is one of my favorite words, so I am delighted to see that an honest-to-goodness ragamuffin is entering my contest!
Now I can’t help but be curious about “jail”. If you’re willing to share your connection that word, please do. If not, no biggie.
Of course: it has a double meaning. I was once arrested for driving on a suspended license due to unpaid speeding ticket…and went to “jail” but thankfully, due to a responsive husband, I never got past the booking office. These days I visit the jail weekly for arrest records for my job.
A lawbreaker! You better keep your nose clean while commenting on this blog, ya hear?
Aspiration, Riverside cool, Salad, Pajamas, Daring
And I am forwarding this contest info on my blog, FB, twitter.
Three ballots for you, Sona!
But what, may I ask, is Riverside cool?
That was how the guys at college described me , and I felt very proud of receiving the compliment as compared to the usual 4 lettered ones. Although few know there lies a unleashed tigress under the feigning cool and calm demeanour.
A fine nickname indeed.
And tigresses are usually pretty cool cats.
am glad you liked, am a big fan of yr blog n doodles…hope I win!
This is the first time I’m visiting your blog and I’m really happy that I did at the right time.
A small intro: I’m a Crime -Triller Author and an international Book Reviewer. I love gaming (PS3) and I’ma huge Infamous and Sly fan.
Can I participate too? (I’m new so I’m feeling a bit awkward) but what the hell, here are my 5 words:
I’ll reblog this post on my reviewing blog- The Reading Bud right away.
Here’s my tweet for this post:
And here’s my Fb share:
Have a great day!
PS: You art is AWESOME! And I really hope I’ll win 😀
“Tomfoolery” is one of my favorite words. It is in third place on my Awesome Word List, behind only “kerfuffle” and “brouhaha.”
I love the other two as well 🙂
And thank you for your kind words about my doodles. Good luck!
You’re welcome. And Thanks!

Children’s author and doodler extraordinaire, Mike Allegra, is at it again. He’s running a contest to win a personalized doodle. Entering is a piece of cake and his website is a hoot even if you’re not a doodle connoisseur. I’m closing comments on this one so just pop on over to Mike’s and good luck! Enjoy!
Here are my words… Flamingo – Baby – Toledo – Angels – Poetry
Ooh, these words pretty much write their own story!
Three ballots for you, Annette! Good luck!
Toledo? As in Ohio or Spain?
Are you an engineer, Dan?
No, but I started college before scientific
And what is the significance of “ice pick”? If you murdered anybody with one you don’t have to tell me. Just sayin’.
It’s from an expression a friend of mind and I use when we’re particularly bored. Like when you might want to stab yourself with an ice pick. Hey, you asked for five things and you offered a chance to win a doodle.
Don’t get me wrong; ’tis a fine five words!
Weatherwax (fave Pratchett witch)
Jelly (name of one of my Weavers)
My tweet link: https://twitter.com/jorobinson176/status/715895663280652289
Ken Weatherwax is also the name of the actor who played Pugsley on The Addams Family TV show. (I have no idea why I know this.)
What a great challenge… have tweeted this and will put it on my FB page later too!
Zombies (I know others have said this too, but I’m doing a whole A to Z on them right now!)
Zombies! Well, Al, you’ve come to the right place.
My boy asked me recently to for a zombie doodle. I posted the finished product on my blog:
Love it… it’s like a zombie Yoda!
Thank you, sir. The characters are from a video game, Plants vs. Zombies, one of my son’s faves.
And, posted this on Twitter – https://twitter.com/DAntion/status/715896730693341184

And I admire your hamster avatar. I don’t know if you know, but this blog is very pro-rodent.
And “meliorist” sends me to the dictionary.
I had no idea that this contest would improve my vocabulary!
Well if you make such a generous offer!
Here are my five words: spiritual, peaceful, nature, writing, water

– Our German Shepherd/Collie cross cant live without him in my world.
Shared on blog firefly465.wordpress.com
This contest has been fascinating, for I have been inundated with words I’ve never heard before. In this case, I had to Google “Orcadian.”
Do forgive my ignorant American ways. The Orkney Islands look lovely.
Reblogged this on firefly465 and commented:
So, Duck, do you have lung disease, or are you just screwing with me?
My five words:
Sharing your post on Twitter and on my FB author page. Love your illustrations and hope I win. Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Follow The Magic!
OK, Bette, your name goes in the hat! Good luck!
Here are my five words:
Aw, are you one of those gluten intolerant folks? I don’t know what I’d do without bread and pasta.
Yet, but when you have to do without it, you do. Lol!
I suppose so. Are Ring Dings gluten free? 😉
My daughters words are:
Pasta (spaghetti or penne)
School (motto – I can I will)
Pasta! I was just talking about pasta with the commenter above you. Looove pasta.
And now I will ignore the fact that you own a cat.
Hi Mike, I will give it a try! Frankfurt, gummy bears, fountain pen, independence, Latin
Now that’s the way to pick out five words. Varied and a wee bit unususal. I can write a good story with these guys.
Good luck, Plain Jane!
Writing, Smart, adventures, Hawaii, singing.
I am writing every day and love it , and have fun in my Smart roadster coup`e called Alfie, My Husband and I we travel together having adventures, We married in Oahu Hawaii and I sing when I am not writing (very very badly) , I have put your post on twitter and a ping back on my blog . https://ellenbest24.wordpress.com/2016/04/02/win-a-doodle/ I would love one of your signed sketches to hang in my writing nook as I fight with the edit of my book.
OK, Ellen, you have three ballots!
And I agree that cars should have proper names. I once owned a used car named “Crap.” As in “Oh, Crap, why won’t you start?”
Hahaha! Crap truly isn’t a proper name, hey but he who wields the pencl; must be right.😇😇
I think your drawer may be the Stig! If unsure who the stig is or was …. he was on Top Gear a motoring programme in England
I’m excited, what a fun post! My words are: toys, April, ocean, grandma, Elkhound
You’re in the hat.
And Elkhounds are cuuuute.
Keeping my fingers crossed! Elkhound are cute and VERY fluffy, lol!
Oh, how fun! Love it! 🙂
T’anks! Do you want to gimme five words so I can put your name in the hat?
What a DeLeon fitful opportunity! I’m awfully deserving. Ellenbest sent me by linking to you on her blog. I’m going to do my best to figure out how to do that. And I’m going to share this on FB. I’m an overachiever like that. Oooh–that should’ve been one of my words!
I have no idea who DeLeon fitful is! I meant delightful.
I feel a story in De’leonfitful … i hear he os a smashing fellow *titters* good luck
Lol! And to you, as well!!!
We are both at it… Os? I meant is. 😉😇
If you win, I will be happy to add DeLeon Fitful to your word list.
DeLeon Fitful it is, then
Deserving, are you? Well, since one of your words is “bacon,” I am inclined to agree.
Two ballots for you!
😍 Bacon, bringing people together since the invention of the skillet.
I can see we’re going to be the best of friends.
I came over to find out more about your competition after reading a plea on Nananyoz’s Praying for Eyebrows site. I think your doodles are great and not even in the same galaxy as my matchstick figures. (This is not literally true, of course, but true in spirit!)
I think some of the other lists of 5 words here are very interesting and entertaining, so rather than putting up my own list, I’ll just wish good luck to everybody else. 🙂
I thank you for the visit and good tidings, Bun!
C’mon back anytime; I’ll put on a pot of coffee.
Thank you very much. I’ll bring doughnuts. 🙂
I knew you were good people, Bun.
In the instance is the joy….Leslie Hall Noyes sent me….aloha!!!!
Hiya, William! Welcome. What’s up? Stay a while. Care for a scone?
Reblogged this on Kate McClelland.
I’m in, just for the fun of it! Ok, 5 words…
Bat (as in flying nocturnal creature, not cricket)
The *only* reason to be in is for the fun of it.
Good luck, Ali!
You got some fine verbs there.
You get a ballot!
Thanks! I should give credit to my Welsh Corgi Shamus. They are all thinks he does during his daily walks, and usually in that order too!
Corgis are fine fellows. Love those pudgy little buggers.
Hopping over from Diane’s site, Myths of the MIrror. Here are my five words:

My delight in knowing what a pangolin is was soon dashed when I read “borborygmus.”
Sigh. And back to the dictionary I go.
Two ballots for you, sir!

Another awesome author trying to make their way in the world.
Big- because I am larger than life.
Dude-I practice dudism.

Blue-Is my favorite color.
A Dudist, eh? Are you also a Big Lebowski fan?
Yes I am! One of my favorite movies.
As far as Coen brothers film are concerned, I am a Raising Arizona devotee.
Oh, man! The Juneau thing really cracked me up. Okay, here I go:
1. Cat-Cow: This is an all encompassing word for me, because it’s a Yoga pose and I love cats and cows more than anything on earth.
2. Potty mouth: My office gave me the “Most Talented Curser” award a couple of months ago. As a child, I used to cuss like a sailor in public to get my parents to pay attention to me. My parents were proud when I received my award recently. They even called me up to congratulate me.
3. Hausfrau: What my husband calls me when I go into crazy cleaning mode, which is often. I once revealed on my blog that my idea of a good time involves cleaning out my bobby pin case. This means discarding the bad bobby pins, scrubbing the case inside and out, and organizing them in the clean case. Some actually applauded this OCD behavior.
4. Hippie: I’m technically a businesswoman…but I smell like incense and essential oils, I’m obsessed with home remedies and kombucha, and I love guided meditation and inversions.
5. Beer: Because it’s a magical beverage. Enough said.
I, for one, applaud your OCD behavior. Well done, Britt. Well done.
Ah, a fellow New Jerseyite! Good luck, Amanda!
Hey, Jenn! How are you? I think I still owe you a beta read, so send me somethin’.
And now I also owe you two ballots! Good luck!

Sorry. You just missed the drawing. But do check back her in the future for more fun (and future doodle contests)!
Still doing this?
Blogging or doodling? I’m still doodling, but due to my schedule theses days, I’ve been forced to temporarily put aside the blog.
