Ridiculous and Delicious

My 7 ARC contest is over.

I know, right?

I swear, I’m breathing hard over here, people. I feel like I just ran a marathon. I had no idea this contest would go over so well. I mean, I’m totally stoked, but, uh, unprepared. And as a result of my glorious unpreparedness, it might take me a day awhile to tally up all the entries, randomize them with assigned numbers, and draw winners.

So, um, I’m now going to distract you. With donuts.

Funniest bit is at the very very end, where he talks about his mama. Awesome.


I don’t know why, but I found the intro to this to be ridiculous and astoundingly delicious.

I want some oily cakes. Yum.


My eyes bugged out at this. I love me some Paula, but duuuuuuuude.

She totally left out the mayo.


P.S. Super thanks to those of you who voted the last couple of days on what to do with my ARCs. Except. Um. I see not one person voted to let me keep the books. Eh hem.

You chose lemurs over me. Not sure what to make of this, people.


P.P.S. You guys freaking rock. I will heart you for ever and ever. Gigantic welcome to all my new blog friends. I’ve been trying to visit all your blogs, but yeah, I’m a bit overwhelmed. Please be patient with me. And if your blog is not linked to your little avatar or to your comments, well, please make sure it is, or I can’t get to you! If you leave a comment, I’ll probably get to you a lot sooner.


P.P.P.S  Mega thanks to those of you who entered my contest. I was feeling really sad about giving away #MyPrecious, but how can I feel bad about it now? Even though some of you preferred lemurs over me, I’m still mostly okay with giving these books away now. So much so, that I’m going to do it again. Yeah. AGAIN. You ready?

Yeah, okay, give me a few days.


P.P.P.P.S. I think Sara McClung will be having another contest too, like any time. Yeah. I knoooooooow. All kinds of crazy ARC love in the blogosphere right now.


P.P.P.P.P.S. All Good things happen in fives.

And thirteens. But my OCD is not as severe as my laziness. So I’ll stop now.


  1. +JMJ+

    Yeah, I prefer lemurs to you. =P Am I disqualified now? =P

    Now a "blogkeeping" question . . . Should we leave the links to the contest up on our sidebars so you can still check them, or is it all right to take them down now?

    Thanks again for hosting this fabulous contest!

  2. I adore Gabriel Iglesias. What a lovely distraction!

  3. Gabriel Iglesias cracks me WAY the hell up. Also, he looks like he'd make a really good pillow.

    Wait. That may have sounded a bit creepy. I take the pillow bit back. He's still funny, though.

    And comfy.


    Never mind.

  4. I found the doughnut documentary to be beautiful anf informational at the same time. :) And, while I also love Paula, I found this clip to be, um, disusting. haha :)

  5. LOLS those videos are so random! I love it :) And lemurs? huh? lol.

    Goodluck getting the contest all sorted out :)

  6. WOO HOOO!!! Thanks again for parting with the precious for us.

    Gabriel Iglesias is so friggin' funny! Good video!

    And don't you know that lemurs are ridiculously irresistibly cute? No one can compete with that.

  7. Haha, thanks again for having such an awesome contest! And because I'm feeling generous, you can just send me Halo and Firelight, and you can keep the other five! You're welcome. ;)

    I probably wouldn't even be that generous if I didn't already have my own copy of Matched, though. If we're going for honesty.

  8. I love Paula too! And take your time with the contest. I'll just be sitting here waiting for you to announce my name. :D

  9. I want me a curtain of sweet glaze, uh-huh.
    I wandered over here and was swept into a wacky world of doughnuts. Who knew?
    Thanks for the fun, as always.

  10. Congrats on the contest going over so well!! I'm excited to see who won :)

  11. Oily cakes cooked in pork fat? Ew.

    LOL!!! I love custard doughnuts myself.

    Good luck with your competition!! I still think donating the ARC to lemurs is the best option! LOL!

    Take care

  12. Lemurs are cute and furry and you can get away with petting them. hahaha. Please don't take that any further. I didn't mean it any other way, really. In fact, I'm not sure what I DID mean, and maybe I should cut my losses and delete this before I post it but I probably won't.

    Happy tallying, randomizing, picking, announcing, packing & shipping!

  13. I LOOOOOOVE ME SOME DONUTS!! AND LEMURS. I fed a lemur once. It was awesome. He had these tiny little hands and fingers and just snatched the food right out of my hand.

  14. Donuts are yummy! BUT you are killing me, girl. Must.Have.Torment!! or Matched or Duff or... LOL! :-)

  15. Maybe Kharma will bring you some new ARCs...if you give some to Lemurs. I've missed some of your posts due to my summer travels and fun (lol, I mean basement flooding)...So I'm not quite sure why you want to give your books to Lemurs???? (I don't think they can read.)

  16. Love Gabriel! Lol You always have the BEST contests!
