May Greeblemix Contest

It’s May Day! And Bryan is getting a colonoscopy today too! Well, he is actually getting a scope down both ends, but I honestly can’t remember what the one down his mouth is called and COLONOSCOPY is so much more fun to type anyway, seeing as WHO KNEW he’s be getting such a thing at age 38!?!?!

So, for this month’s Greeblemix contest, you get to play a doctor on the internet. Because Bryan’s doctors don’t know what the hell is wrong with his stomach, go Googling and come back with 1 guess as to what they might be looking for with a colonoscopy.

Remember the rules!

1. First three commenters with an ailment that a colonoscopy is used to diagnose will win a CD.

2. Please, only guess one ailment in your comment, to leave room for other commenters.

3. One guess per person!

Have at it!

Our winners this month are: DaveGoBlog, TreesInOK (who has a surprise in the works for her blog, woo hoo!), BlogMeMamalicious and MerryMishaps! And of course I will send one to the birthday girl too, particularly since the mix is peppered with songs that remind me of her.

April Greeblemix Contest

Hooray, it’s the 1st again! And it’s also my very good friend Stacie’s birthday! And her beloved Jayhawks are in the Final Four! And I only know what that means because I love her so much and had a guy at work explain it to me!

Can you tell I am not all that into sports? But there *are* a few I would pay good money to see. And honestly, up until Bryan and Declan going to a Nuggets game for $5 last week and having a blast, basketball was not one of them. Sure they were in the last row up against the wall at the Pepsi Center, but did you hear that Rocky can hit a basket from midcourt backwards?

So, that is the topic of this month’s contest.

Not including basketball, what are three sports I would pay money to go see played live and in person?

REMEMBER THE RULES:

1. ONE GUESS PER PERSON! ALSO MEANING ONE SPORT PER PERSON.
2. IF YOU GOT A CD LAST MONTH, TAKE A MONTH OFF.
3. WISH STACIE A HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
4. ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK! (?!?!?)

Good luck!

Oh yeah! It’s March 1st!

This month’s Greeblemonkey Mix CD contest almost slipped by me, mainly because I was in Maryland last week, I have been crazed at work this week and I am going to SXSW Interactive next week.

So, I will make this one easy. The first 3 commenters on this beautiful day in March (72 degrees here in Denver!) will get this month’s mix CD. If you won last month though, take a month off!

For those interested, here are the Greeblemixes of the past 6 months…
