I just found out about a wonderful giveaway at Gooseberry Patch! My bloggie friend Kathy at
http://homesteadersheart.blogspot.com/ told me about it. And as much as I appreciate her pointing me in the right direction, I completely disagree with her logic.
I should win these 3 cookbooks.
#1 - She already has lots of lovely Gooseberry Patch cookbooks while I have none.
#2 - I'm older and deserve her respect and her acquiescence!
#3 - I know more big words than she does (aka acquiescence -- see below*)
#4 - Because I'm older & could possibly pass on to the big cookhouse in the sky before she does, I could (and possibly would) will them to her.
#5 - She has a husband and I don't and therefore, am lonely and bored and have much more time on my hands than she does to give due regard to these fine cookbooks. (Do you think I've possibly used that little chestnut too much over the past 12 years??)
#6 - I'm pretty sure I can whine and/or cry louder than she can.
*Acquiescence is the term used to describe an act of a person in knowingly standing by without raising any objection to infringement of his rights, when someone else is unknowingly and honestly putting in his resources under the impression that the said rights actually belong to him. ...
And if I should win said desired cookery books, here are the three I think I choose:

So pop on over to Gooseberry http://gooseberrypatch.typepad.com/blog/2009/11/calling-all-bloggers.html and check out their beautiful items.
And despite the fact that I highly covet these cookbooks, good luck to everyone who's entered!

I am holding thumbs for you. I will not enter as I do not really like to cook (only sometimes when I feel like it).

Your reasoning about why you deserve these cookbooks and why you should win, are very logical and at the same time, very funny.
Thanks for the smiles, and hey, the cookbooks look fabulous.
I love Christmas so the first two look especially appealing to me.

I just love the Gooseberry Patch. I order all my friend's Christmas Gifts from there and Birthday gifts every year. I get to save on the postage from sending a parcel from over here and they get to enjoy some lovely things!

With three vegetarian mouths to feed, turns out I don't think I need those cookbooks so I can keep my fingers crossed for you as well!

I love Gooseberry Patch and I love your six reasons! (Especially number 6.) Sorry to add more competition to you, but I'd love to have these books myself, so I'll be entering, too. However, if I win, I'm even older than you, so I'll will them to you!
