One of the things on my first list was to win some sort of a contest or a prize. When I was making up my second list, I realized how stupid it was to put that on my list, since it could be something over which I'd have very little control.
During the term of my first project, I managed to win a contest run by one of my favorite foodie blogs. And then, today, I just learned that I won another contest, this time run by one of my favorite gay blogs. Okay, maybe I didn't actually win this contest...technically, I got fourth place. But I still won a prize. Since this is the second blog-run contest that I've won, I'm starting to think that maybe my superpower is winning contests like this. Wouldn't that be sad? I'd rather have the ability to freeze time and move around and change things.
The Bilerico Project was giving away DVD copies of "I Love You Philip Morris" to five readers who volunteered their craziest love story. I don't really think of my love story with my partner, David, as being particularly crazy, but I offered it anyway. Here's what I submitted:
I started dating someone I'd been friends with, and less than six months into it, I suggested that he come with me on vacation to Antarctica. He didn't hesitate to say 'yes.' I figured, well, if he'll follow me to the ends of the earth...literally...this must be serious.Sweet, right? Of course, I could have filled in all sorts of other details about how when we first met, we dated for a while, but I was on the rebound and the timing was bad for me but we stayed friends and then the timing got better and David gave me another shot, probably against his better judgment and he'll be paying for it for the rest of his ever-lovin' life most likely but we've bought a big old Victorian house at this point so he's obviously stuck with me mwah-ha-ha-ha... But I left all of that out.
