Threemanycooks has more readers than we could possibly have imagined in just two short months. (Thanks Ree Drummond–aka Pioneer Woman–for the warm web welcome.)
Given all our readers, however, there’s not nearly enough yakking! We suspect it’s because after you’ve read our long, carefully crafted responses (which we’ve heard you like) you think you need to respond in kind. Not so. And to prove how much we like short responses, we’re going to give you 140 characters (more or less) to complete the following sentiment, “I adore (or abhor) Thanksgiving because….”
Character count begins after “because…” and don’t worry about being Twitter precise because no one is really counting. For those who don’t use Twitter, 140 characters is basically just one long sentence.
Posting deadline is this Sunday, November 15th at 11:59 PM Eastern Time with winners announced by 6:00 PM Eastern Time on Monday, November 16th. Winners will then e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with their shipping address.
The two best comments will receive a handsome Lindsay Olives holiday wreath (see photo above) made from olive, bay, and eucalyptus branches, shipped to you in time for Thanksgiving (as long as winners give us their street address and phone number by November 19th).
If you’re not one of the lucky winners, however, and would still like a wreath, they’re very reasonable—$30 for a 14-inch one, $35 for an 18-incher (plus shipping) with delivery until December 31, 2009. You can order at www.lindsayolives.com or call (800) 765-2029.
And here’s the best part: proceeds from wreath sales go to The Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA), so not only are you getting (or giving) something beautiful, you’re also helping a worthy cause.
Let the responses (in the comments section below) begin!
