In Which It's Time

Remember the contest I wrote about a little while back? The one where I was giving away some limited edition Badass Geek pins in exchange for an embarrassing story about yourself? 

The deadline was Wednesday, and it's time to announce the winners!

Please help me congratulate TechnoBabe for her awesome story about an extremely awkward-sounding workout session, Kael Hunt for sharing with us her top 25-played songs on iTunes (which has some pretty great songs on it), Mepsipax for being well... Mepsipax, and Linda at The Random Memorandum for telling quite possibly the best awkward date story I've heard in a long, long time.

Congratulations, all of you! Shoot me an e-mail with your address and I'll send out your pins next week.

Now, only four people submitted entries for the contest, so that leaves six pins up for grabs. Thus, I'm going to let Random.org help me choose who the remaining pins will go to. To enter, just leave a comment on this post. On Sunday evening, I'll tally up the comments and let the randomizer pick six lucky people to get one of the remaining pins. Commenting more than once won't increase your odds; I'll only count one comment per reader.

Good luck, and I'll announce the lucky six on Monday!

Have a good weekend, everyone.

BWAHHAHA The Random Memorandum's was awesome! They all were. I have quite a few embarrasing moments, but most of them involve tampons, or lack of thereof. Like in High School when I was sitting on a guys lap at a party, and went into the kitchen with him to get a beer or something and the front of his pants were covered in blood. No, thats not awkward lol.

dangerGator said...

I have a few stories, but I'm so inarticulate that they would not sound funny.

I'm still here... said...

I have stories but some things are better left off the web.

Wow now those stories were embarrassing for sure. I'm always open to enter a drawing to win a blog prize. How cool would I be to attain a Badass Geek limited edition pin.

Consider this my official entry. Congratulations to the other winners!

I should have linked one of my old workout posts. But still, I don't think I would have won. Congratulations!

The story is a bonus. I'm an over-achiever.

it's not an embarrassing story for ME, per say - but it's 3 good memories as a resident advisor.

I have an embarrassing story for you:

I was at a bar with some friends. Earlier in the night, one had pulled a long string of condoms out of his packet. We teased him for having so many (it was like TWENTY!). he gave one to each of us and said we better have a good story if we didn't have it still in the morning.
Anyway.. at the bar later, I was on my way from the shooter bar to rejoin my friends. I felt a tap on my shoulder. Behind me is an absolutely gorgeous woman. She was dressed to the nines. Normally, I'm really shy, but with all the liquor in my veins, I had no fear! I pulled out the condom, handed it to her, and said, "Would you like to **** or should I just leave now?"

My brain took about 5 seconds to catch up to what I had said. She was looking at the condom, and me... I turned and fled before she could answer. To this day I'm fairly certain she was going to say yes...

The next morning, we all reached into out jacket pockets. I was the only one without the condom. At first I couldn't remember where it had gone.. then it hit....I was going to try to cover it up, but one of the other guys had seen the whole thing... To this day I still can't live it down... :S

Kael Hunt said...

Personally, I'm thrilled to be getting an official Badass Geek button, and congrats to the other winners :-) Was thinking I might attach the button to the "Wee Ninja" I keep on display at the office...

#1Nana said...

As I get older my memory has had to erase old embarrassing memories to make room for new memories. Okay, that's not really true...I'm just not that in to public humiliation!

Tiffany said...

if i won a pin, i'd wear it proudly through the streets of copenhagen. i hope the randomizer picks me!

Andrea T said...

I hope I get picked by the randomizer! I read your blog to my Hubideau and over the phone to my sister....just about anybody that will listen.

...Gabby? said...

Oh Jess...that's too funny! I didn't think you'd still remember that night! ;}

By the way, did you all know that safe sex is now also green sex?

(I'm not really trying to suck up for a pin. No, really. I'm not.)

Mystern said...
