Hours Away

The time is drawing near to give away the bucket o' Iowa crap...and time for a reminder.

I have decided that the referrer of visitor 250,000 (or closest thereafter to claim it) will receive a Hawkeye gift basket of some sort. Everyone I know is getting Hawkeye stuff for Christmas. Why should you be any different?

I think I'll also have a handful (i.e. 5) of "nearly first place" prizes for the readers who come close to being the 250,000th visitor themselves and send in a screen shot as proof. They will be small prizes (under $10), but a small something is better than a big nothing. Those prizes will go to anyone who is 249,998 and beyond who claims it first, until all 5 are claimed.

The bucket goes to the blog referrer of the 250,000th visitor (or first non-search engine referrer after 250,000), and I will be the final judge as to who that may be, based on Sitemeter's records.

A deck of cards and keychain will go to the 5 readers closest to being 250,000 to claim it first. So, if you're reader 249,998 or later take a screenshot and e-mail it to me: jenlarson - at - gmail - dot - com. The first 5 screenshots to appear in my mailbox will get the prizes.

Well, poop. 25K was from a Google Image Search! I was 25K-1. Dunno who was 25K+1, but it might have been my GF.

Update! 25K+1 was another google search, for the phrase "Screw the Pooch."

Dang, I missed it! 250,011 here.

I think someone was trying too hard. ;)

And I don't know how to do a screen shot. I know how to do a vodka shot, though. Does that count?

Pixy, unbeknownst to me, my brother was doing all that mad clicking.
