One World, One Heart

***
OWOH is OVER- at least for this year! Thanks for playing, everyone! I'll announce winners tonight!

***



A giveaway, in which I am bad at introductions.

Hello, One World One Heart riders, and readers new and old! It's lovely to meet you.

Here's the thing, I'm no good at talking about myself from a dry start. Not at all. I need a prompt! Being an inveterate geek, I fall back on: The Zombie Apocalypse. What should you know if you're deciding to share a compound with me against the ravening hordes of brain-eating undead?

Well, , I am indeed an inveterate geek, which means I know the proper zombie engagement procedures. I'm also a fairly stereotypical Texan, in the sense of being ready, able, and quite willing to put bullets in things of a shambling nature. I know first aid and very basic herbalism; I can bake, make simples and extracts, do some basic sewing and pretty complicated cooking, and I'm immune to poison from bees, wasps, and scorpions. I can tell good stories, and as long as I get to have my naps and some decent food now and then I'm aggressively cheerful. I have no major addictions except caffeine, and provided we're still in Texas I know how to get that even without coffee or tea.

On the downside, I am, in fact, a big ol' spaz. Actual seizures and stuff. Aaaaand I'm pretty much a cripple, so it's a darn good thing I can shoot, 'cause I ain't gonna make it through a horde o' Zeds with hand to hand combat. But you shouldn't fight zombies that way anyhow, their bite is toxic and all.

I did mention the geek thing. You read all the way here, you have only yourself to blame.

And since we're unlikely to be locked in a Zombie War anytime soon, you might be more interested in knowing that I love artsy craftsy stuff, and blather about it a good deal. That's my Etsy shop/online gallery over thar, on the side bar. I like fairy tales and science history and stories of all kinds; I read books by the pound. Although rarely the blockbuster stuff, with the exception of King and Pratchett. I don't normally talk about zombies quite so much. And I love, love, love finding out about other people. I'm very nosy. I will probably read all your blogs. Which brings us to...

The Prize! Yay, Prizes!

Yeah, I know. You didn't even read the intro. Or maybe you read to "zombie apocalypse" and looked down here in sheer trainwrecky horror. Well, there's a prize anyway. And how zombieriffic it is is up to you, gentle appalled reader.

See, I racked my brains thinking about what I could give away that lots of people would want. And....I got nothin'. But for myself, I like a suprise! Especially if it's tailored a little to me. So to enter my giveaway, tell me three things that you love or enjoy-- it could "tea,snakes, the color green" or "labor history, gluten free baking, personals ads" or "rainy days, the zoo, atrocious pop music earworms". Whoever I pick-- and I'll pick one winner for every hundred comments, if it comes to that- will get something special, made just for them. It could be a packet of collageable papers, homemade envelopes, a little clay pendant, a spell...it'll all depend on what you like! That way it'll be a surprise for both of us.
And because I am an artist, and understand well the power of procrastination, I'm leaving this open until midnight, Feb. 14, 2010, Central (Texas) Time.

So that's it-- leave me a post telling me three things you love, by Feb. 14, WITH YOUR EMAIL! Gah! How tragic if you don't tell me your email, and you can't get a shiny prize! And be sure to check out the other OWOH participants, following the finely crafted link at the top of this post. I'll announce the winner on Feb. 15, barring a colossal internet denial of service.

Or, you know.

In case of Zombie Apocalypse.

I love the smell of the air after the thunder has gone, my 2 kids and my hubby and sharing creativity with others. The order is at random.

What an original idea, asking for the three things one loves the most; it was difficult, but I went on the spontaneous mode ;-)
Hopefully that brings me luck to become the proud owner of your surprise!

And thank you for your visit to my OWOH blog earlier today!

susanna said...

You, too?! It's such a relief knowing that I'm not the only one who fears a Zombie Apocalypse. And seeing that you are a Texan with the obvious ability to shoot from the hip, you probably own more than one gun? If so, can I borrow one...not now, of course...you know, when the zombies finally show up.

As for the things that make MY head dizzy: dark chocolate, coffee,photography,artwork, airline tickets...

thehauntedstudiounderthestairs said...

Cara-
I have long worried of Zombie Apocalypse, The Cannabilistic Cadaver Catastrophe...and yes, even the C.H.U.D.s.

I fret it for all the wrong reasons. I will NOT drive a Ferrari though zombies.

Now, for three things that I love-

1- Liberty. Not the small cap l, but the large cap L. Liberty in the Constitutional sense, not loose boxers. If it were not for Liberty, I, me, as an insane artist would either be put into a State Institution or be forced to create Worker's Party Posters.

2-Women. Too much of my brain is consumed by the thought of them.

3- Art. Mostly mine. And then, the creation process. But first and foremost, I love art. Paintings, ddodles, sculpture...art of all kinds from so many different artists.

I am sure my this was of no help to ya!

Hey!...how come my word verication for this post is-REHAB?

Tout a vous...

Well, I like post-apocalyptic films and books-and was therefore impressed at your zombie fighting skills. I know that if I actually came across any I would just be killed immediately!
I like cats. I like tiny versions of real life things-give me a tiny telephone or a miniature man and I am happy! Lovely to meet you!

Come have a looky at my blog if you'd like to see my lizards! I'm in Australia, so all the lizards are Australian!

Oh Cara, you're quite entertaining. Nothing better than hitting them w/ good old honesty. I like it. :o) The closest I've come to stressing out over a Zombie Apocalypse is when watching movies like "28 Days Later", "Shawn of the Dead" & the like... but it's good to know there's someone I can go to if I have any issues I need to deal w/. :o)

Three things, huh? Let's see...
Nature, Clay, Glass

Come on by my blog to enter my OWOH giveaway... one of two art-glass heart pendants.

See you there!
