A Facebook Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful girl. Aside from being beautiful, she was also hilarious, brilliant, entertaining, eloquent, and adorable. Oh, and modest.


This beautiful girl had a blog, and one day, she decided to create a Facebook fan page to spread her good cheer and general insanity throughout the land. So the girl made the fan page, and God (and Jacob) said it was good.


Then the girl frolicked off to run errands and hit up the Bloomingdales Friends & Family sale (not once but twice) and dye her hair red and in a flash, two days passed. When the girl finally returned to her home, she logged into Facebook and lo and behold, what did she find?


THAT IN A MATTER OF TWO DAYS, SHE HAD 214 FOLLOWERS ON HER FACEBOOK FAN PAGE!!!


And the girl was happy and rejoiced. And then she found a handsome and equally hilarious husband and they got married and they all lived happily ever after.*


*Um, this last part still needs to happen. And for all you slow ones out there, the girl is me. The whole “beautiful gorgeous fantastic amazing brilliant” thing should have tipped you off.


ANYWAYS... this afternoon I promised that if I reached 200 followers by the end of day today, I would host another fabulous giveaway. I’m a girl of my word -- here we go!


Seeing as tomorrow, I am jaunting off to New York, this giveaway will be New York themed. Since I like giving surprises (but HATE being surprised - seriously do not ever throw me a surprise party or I will ban you from this blog for life), I am giving away a SPECIAL SURPRISE NEW YORK GIFT PACKAGE!!!


Here is your only hint: one of the THREE things in the package is edible and known to be a SPECIAL NEW YORK TREAT. Hmmm... whatever could it be? :)


HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO ENTER:

  1. Become a fan of the Queen of LA Facebook fan page (if you haven’t done so already).
  2. Leave me a comment here guessing what could be in the package! Also if you want to leave a second comment giving me a compliment, I wouldn’t totally hate that.
  3. Make sure you leave your email so I know how to reach you if you win.
  4. TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT THIS BLOG!!!

I love you all like I love cake and Las Vegas and cuddles. That last one is a lie, I hate being touched.


NEXT TIME - COMING AT YOU FROM THE EAST COAST!


*UPDATE: I TOTALLY FORGOT TO MENTION HOW THE WINNER WILL BE PICKED.... get ready for amazingness....


My father, the one and only Garsilv, will be choosing the winner randomly. The best part? I am going to videotape the choosing and post it on the blog... ALONG WITH A SPECIAL RENDITION OF HIM SINGING HIS FAMOUS VERSION OF "RING OF FIRE" BY JOHNNY CASH.


If that doesn't get you running back to this blog, nothing will.

I almost feel that its a trick question for me. Being New York I would assume it has something to do with fassion (ie that purse you were talking about in a previous post) But what it should be is a corned beef sandwich from Carnagie Deli. But since that would smell pretty bad by the time it got put in a gift basket it would have to be an onion bagel from a new york bagel place. Just as smelly, but it will keep longer in a gift basket addressed to me. You might have to hold of on the lox though

Gary, Gary, Gary, Gary, Gary, Gary, Gary, Gary.. Pick ME!!

So, your in NY and one of the prizes is food... What could jordan marissa rose silverman possibly bring back as a prize??? could it be a tubular meat of some sort?? a nathan's hotdog?? That would be my guess!

Ok, there are many reasons why I feel I am deserving of this wonderful and gorgeous gift package, there is no real way for me to explain them all in one comment, but I will try. Jordan you are very pretty.

1. Gar Silv: now that I have officially become an adopted Silverman daughter (don't worry Bay, I could never take your place. Just at the dinner table) I feel like the fatherly thing to do is pick family for the winner. Plus, if you pick me I will legally allow you to use Sunday as your last name. That's right, its all yours if you announce Jessie C. Sunday as the winner.

2. I am writing this comment from Cambodia, which means I had to get up extra early, catch a tuk-tuk and battle through motorbikes just to get to an internet cafe to check this blog and share my thoughts with Jordana. Amazing.

3. I will be returning from my travels very soon and coming to L.A. before Israel and that means I will most likely be breaking into your home to stay there (invite or not). How awkward is it going to be when you come in for your morning health breakfast and I am there and you DIDNT pick me as a winner?

4. I held Jordanas hand all the way through the Holy Land and pulled her away from a-many gift shop. She only bit me once.

5. I LOVE the Silverman family and will be giving Jordana the biggest cuddle when I get home! I like to pretend I don't know about her creepy "nobody touch me" rule. Doesnt apply to Monks, sorry.

The gift is most likely a HUGE pink cupcake. Remember, Monk, when I used to drive us to get cupcakes at work??? By me, I mean you driving obviously.

LOVE YOU!!!!!

OMG if it is TASTI DLITE (Anna, please note the spelling!!!) I will die! I better win! You can deliver it fresh to me on WEDNESDAY!

But I think it is chocolate covered matzah, gefilte fish, and some new york style hardboiled eggs!

And just think, if GARSIL picks me (love ya gary!) then you can save on shipping and deliver me the prizes on wednesday!

Jordan-

I'm OBVIOUSLY already an fb fan, and have had some of my friends follow as well - they think you are as funny as I do!

My guess would be something from Dylan's Candy Bar?! Or Rice to Riches (although how would that be transported - eek!)

A faithful follower,
