My Very First Giveaway. I Love Lamp.

Do you really love the lamp, or are you just saying it because you saw it?

Hell yes I started a giveaway post with an Anchorman quote.

Anyway, these folks over at stores decided my blog was just right for one of these giveaway things I'm always hearing about and sometimes try to win. They gave me the choice between taking something myself and doing a review, or letting y'all try to win something. Being the unselfish guy I am, I chose to let you win something.

The Missus is PISSED.

You see, she wanted some tables, and now she's not getting those tables. You are getting a lamp instead. But before I go linking anything, I have to link this first.

How many of you could really use some track lighting fixtures?

Just raise your hands, then put them back down on your mouse and click that link. They'll get you all fixed up.

So anyway, on to my giveaway.

I'm going to give you this lamp.

Here are the rules. 

You are going to get one entry per comment on this post. You can submit multiple comments. 

You will get 2 entries for following my blog. 

You will also get 1 entry if you follow me on Twitter @tstyles77 

If the comments go over 100, the person with the 100th comment will get 5 entries. 

If you blog about this post and link it to mine, you'll receive 5 entries. 

Be sure you let me know in the comments that you followed me on Twitter and what your Twat name is. If you blog about the giveaway, then post the link in the comments. I won't cap the number of entries you can receive! Blow me up, blog bitches!

The winner will be chosen from a random number generator site next Thursday, and I'll announce the winner next Friday. 

That's like a $50 lamp, y'all. Who knows, maybe it will lead you down the path of well lit-ness? Or it could one day let you read a book by me if I ever get one published. Or you could cover it with a soft pink sheet and seduce your lover for a night of marathon love making. The possibilities are endless. 

Actually, I don't recommend that. I recommend NOT putting pink stuff on lamps. I knew a guy, his nickname was "Crispy."

Wow. I've turned this giveaway post into a post about sex and burn victims. Who knew?

What I do recommend? Gettin busy with the entries. 



  1. You will get 2 entries for following my blog.

    You will also get 1 entry if you follow me on Twitter @tstyles77

    Already following and already on Twitter.

    Just give me the lamp already, you know you want to

  2. Entry #2....

    which makes me giggle for two reasons

    1. I just did a number 2


    2. NO ONE gets to enter the #2 hole.....

  3. so like i said, give me the fucking lamp.

  4. but the other day i broke the switch on the lamp in my room, so this is an actual necessity for me right now.

  5. this has got to be the most random giveaway ever.

  6. give me the fucking lamp, travis.

  7. i live in the darkness. the only light is my illumination from the cold glow of the computer monitor.

  8. i follow you and tweet you and all that shit already. i even text you pictures of the new fat baby that was brought into my family. fucking cute, right? right! i deserve a lamp for it.

  9. i'm moving out soon. i'll need a lamp at my new place.

  10. you can just bring it to st. louis. i'll get it from you there.

  11. bite me mandy, i don't want the lamp in michigan. it looks like a wisconsin lamp to me.

  12. The only thing that keeps this deal from being any sweeter is that its not a lady leg lamp with fishnet stockings. That would be the ultimate

  13. whatever jeff. it's not made out of cheese so wisconsin isn't gonna want it.

  14. if i win the lamp i'll take pictures of it hanging out in every room of my house. jeff wouldn't do that.

  15. I'm commenting, I fucking hate Twitter and rarely go there, and I don't need a lamp. If I need light, I'll have a thought (gotta be old enough to remember good cartoons to understand this one.) I don't need a lamp, so if you draw my name as winner, give the lamp to Miss Briley Ann for her room.

  16. Travis, I think GingerMandy wants the lamp!

  17. I follow you on twitta'!


  18. Ooohhh...! Pretty lamp!! It can go in my guest bedroom!

  22. Well, screw me sideways - a friggin lamp? Whoopie! No use whatsoevah here in Oz. Too damn far to ship, wrong voltage, though it is a pretty snazzy little thing... Oh, did I tell you about the time I put a lovely multicoloured nylonie scarf over the bare bulb on my bedhead? Ever had chemically induced hallucinations whilst trying to scrape melted winter accessories off a hot light? FUN!
