A Friendly Reminder

Three weeks ago I successfully won a very prestigious blog contest. It was hosted by my good friend Matt. We've been friends since High School, and became bosom friends during a particularly fun couple weeks in the summer of '91. Here we are, clearly being bosom friends, at EFY. (Cuz that's where Mormon's bond.... with the help of John Bytheway)

I was going to hold off this post, until I received my big prize. I figured I would try to give him plenty of time, he's a busy man. I don't like to brag too much, but he's pretty famous, just ask my kids. Here he is with mine and my friend Jeni's kids, after watching him in Willy Wonka. He gave them all autographs, totally made their day.


He is currently very busy in another production, and he also works other job(s) on the side. So, ok, I should give him some time to prepare my big prize. Last week I gave him a friendly reminder on his facebook. He told me he was busy making me a Chex mix. Well, another week has gone by, and I am beginning to worry about the freshness of that said Chex mix.

(Speaking of fresh, here he is looking a little too fresh. I really should have posted this beauty with the high school dance picture post. )


I was really hoping this post would be of me opening up my box, and bragging to all the losers of the contest (sorry Casey and Jeni) about how tasty my Chex mix was. But, it is now turning into another polite reminder to Matt. I just really like snack mixes Matt. And I also have lots more pictures, and a fast scanner. (That's totally not a threat, so don't spit in my Chex mix please)

This post reads a little light on the friendly and a little heavy on the reminding.

Dog gone it! You earned that chex mix. You let me know if he doesn't follow through. I will break on of his fingers.
That's right Matt! Your middle one!

Casey said...

The truth is he sent your stupid box and I being all Alias like intercepted it. I'm munching on chex mix as I type. The twinkies were loved by all and you really didn't WIN!
