Winners of Mrs. B’s Haunted Blog Tour Giveaway and Crazy Dog T-Shirts Giveaway

I’m on schedule to post the winner of the Crazy Dog T-Shirt giveaway, since I said it would be today. But I apologize for combining it with the winner announcement for the Mrs. B’s Haunted Blog Tour Giveaway. I was supposed to announce that winner yesterday.


My computer crashed late Thursday afternoon. After calling around I found out I could order a fix-it disk from my computer’s manufacturer…but I’d have to wait 7-10 business days to get it.

Seeing as I’m smack dab in the middle of my Halloween party, that was simply not acceptable. I got prizes to giveaway after all don’t you know!

Paying someone else to fix it was also an option…except that was going to cost quite a bit. And I’d still be down a computer for who knew how long. (Less than 7 business days, but that was still too long.)


As I joked on HJ’s Facebook page, “Good try, Universe, but you can’t hold a party girl down!”

Rather than spending all that money paying someone else to fix something I should be able to fix myself, I opted to do two things:

  1. Still order the disk and wait the 7-10 business day,
  2. Buy a new computer. I love my other one (even if it has Vista on it) and I’ll go back to using it as my main squeeze when I get it working right, but I decided I really should have “just in case” solution too.

 Ha! Take that, Universe. Who’s laughing now?


Trouble was, I got the new computer home Friday, set it up and instantly ran into all sorts of problems. I called tech support twice and after the second call when they still couldn’t fix my problem, they said I needed to take the computer back and exchange it.

So I packed it up this morning and spent almost two hours in Best Buy with a Geek Squad agent trying to figure out what was wrong. Turned out the new computer had a bad hard drive!

Curse you, Universe, you Halloween party pooper!


But they exchanged it out for a new one. So far this second new computer seems to be working okay. {furiously knocking on wood}

Hopefully this will be the last of the Spooktacular Halloween Blog Party hiccups. (I’m not betting on it though. If you’ve been around for my other parties you know I can’t throw one without being plagued by hiccups…and unfortunately they’re not caused from indulging in too much punch either!)


Combined on one video. (If you’re new to HJ giveaways, I like to record winner drawings so you can see I really am drawing names.)

And since I don’t record them for my health, if you want to kn0w who won, you have to watch. (Or wait for the winner to be posted in the sidebar. I always add a winner section to watever party widget I’ve got posted.)

The next giveaway will be anounced soon. Stay tuned…
