Blog Giveaway!

Are you interested in a free t-shirt? A super, cute black one that says Airhead on the front? Because I have a couple to give away thanks to Meg Cabot’s awesome publicist, Rachel. She actually sent me five shirts, but then my 13 year old niece wanted one, so I had to hook her up. And then my 11 year old niece was all, that’s not fair, so I had to give one to her, too. And, of course, Sheryl needs something to give to her kids in Poland, so that leaves us two very fabulous shirts left to give away! If you haven’t read Airhead yet, I highly recommend it. I really, really liked it and I think it appeals to a much wider age-range than many of Meg’s other books (don’t you love how I referred to her as Meg? Like we are BFF. That’s what happens when you read someone’s blog, you start thinking you know them). Anyway, now that I have rambled on enough, if you are interested in winning a t-shirt, just leave a comment saying whose body/life you would like to have if given the chance (this will make much more sense once you read the book). As for me? I am thinking Jessica Biel.

Edit to add: OK, I was doing a little catch-up reading on Meg Cabot's blog and I saw that she did an Airhead t-shirt giveaway, too (not surprising)! And then I saw that she asked people to leave in the comments who they would like to swap lives with! Shoot, I thought I was being clever coming up with that, but I really just look like a big copycat. However, I can take something positive from this...Meg Cabot and I think alike.
I also wanted to add that the winner will be notified via their blog (or email if you gave me one) this Friday. Good luck!

I would love to win an Airhead t-shirt. I haven't read the book yet, but I am looking for some good summer reads and I love getting recommendations.

If I could have anyone's body it would be Jessica Biel or Fergie. If I could change to anyone else's life, it would be Oprah's.

Hmm, given the chance? I'd want to be Leighton Meister. She's gorgeous, she plays a kick-butt character on Gossip Girl, and she's quite talented. So, I'd want to be her. :)

OR Rosario Dawson. Because that woman is breathtaking and talented and very intelligent. She's very inspirational to me. PLUS she got to play Mimi in the RENT movie. I'm obsessed with RENT, you know.

I'd love to win and Hello, I'd want to look like Angelina Jolie!!!

Thanks for the cool giveaway!

I have had a wonderful life -- but my body hasn't always come along willingly -- and I've always joked about needing a body transplant.... but you think the grass is greener till you get there -- I know it comes with strings attached and ones I just am not used to....so I am staying in my own body, thank you very much.

I can never get enough t-shirts and that looks like a cute one. I'd like Angelina Jolie's body. Her life seems to be great, too.

Shoshanah said...

Me? In another body?

I'd choose someone tall - so then I could reach the cabinets when I need to!

I'll just shoot for the stars and say Heidi Klum. Isn't she known as "The Body". (Or is that Elle MacPherson?)

Either one is fine with me!

Sheryl said...

Know another book that relates to having someone else's body? The Host!

Anyway, I'd be happy to have the body of any of the women on "Dancing With the Stars."

Kat Bryan said...

I'm tall and I like being tall so if I had to choose a tall body in better shape than mine, I'd choose Brooke Shields. If I just wanted a 'hot' body, I'd pick Mariah Carey. Thanks for having the contest.

Bunny B said...

Ooo... If I could have another body, I'd love to be Jessica Alba! Woot!! Could I have her face too? :P
LOL

Thanks so much for the chance!

I think I would like to be Minnie Driver. She has a graceful but strong looking body. And I'm watching Good Will Hunting right now and I love this movie.

Marni Tiani Self said...

I would LOVE a shirt. Hmmm... I like Marlene's answer of Fergie. :)

No wait, Angelina Jolie is much better. In that one movie with her boobs enhanced. I couldn't believe they did that. Yeah, AJ in Tomb Raider. That's my vote! :D

Sheryl said...

I've been thinking about how neat it will be to take a shirt to Poland. I can take a Meg Cabot book with me and talk to them about whether they've read any of her books, and we can talk about the word "airhead." Isn't that a great slang word?

Maybe I can remember to take a photo of whoever wins it and post it here.

I really like Meg Cabot's books! Well, the ones I have read.

Anyway. That was not the question. Who I'd like to swap bodies/lives with...you didn't say it had to be a real person...so my answer is Becky Bloomwood from the Shopaholic series because she's totally cute, her husband is hot, and she has lots of money to shop with. You know, all the important things in life.

Sara said...

Hmm... Difficult. If I could back in time and switch for a little bit, I'd choose Marilyn Monroe.
