I'm shameless

So there's this contest.

It's not for anything life altering, just the chance to win a Flip Video Camera. Some of you might be rolling your eyes, but it's something that I would dearly love to have, but there's no way we can buy one. We are living off of one income, so there is a vast chasm between "wants" and "needs".

Vast. Chasm.

If you already received my pathetic email, are friends with me on facebook, follow me on Twitter, or read my plea over at thebabywearer, then this will be getting old. If not, basically it's a contest (if you can call it that) for a free Flip. All you have to do to win is have the most votes. SO IT'S A POPULARITY CONTEST, really. I didn't find out about it til last night and the contest ends tomorrow (Nov 3rd), so am now frantically trying to beat the leader who currently has 140 votes more than me. But I can do it! I'm competitive!

You don't have to sign up or register or give any information. Just click "vote" next to my name (Amy B....) which should be right at the top.


If you have access to more than one computer, vote from each! Pleasepleaseplease. I would lovelovelove to win this video camera.

Peter interviewed for a job in Nigeria a few weeks ago, and we are expecting a response by this week. I would lovelovelove to have a camcorder (do people still use that word??) of some sort to "show" everyone what our life is like there... should we get the job. He was one of only three interviewees, so chance are actually pretty good.

The lady currently in the lead has 140 more votes than me, so I figured I'd shamelessly beg all of you for some votes... please?

  2. I just voted for you, AND I sent out an email to a whole bunch of people on my email list asking them to go and vote too. :) Yep, you know you love me.
