For the first three people who reply to me and re-post this challenge, I will send you something. It might be something I’ve made, or something cool from my hidden stash, it might be a mix CD – or a rubber duck, a book I think you will enjoy, or something else that is awesome. Whatever it is, I promise that I will get it to you in 365 days or less.
The only thing you need to do in order to participate is to be one of the first three to reply to this, AND post this very same thing on YOUR live journal – ’cause its fun to give people stuff.
The first 3 participants win!
