This week, in the vein of If You Can’t Be Awesome, It Pays To Know People Who Are, I am giving away a copy of my friend Stefanie Wilder-Taylor’s book, It’s Not Me, It’s You. I met Stef through her blog, Baby on Bored, which, if you’re not reading, you’re probably a serial killer, so go and read her. She sent me a copy right after I had Mimi and I stayed up all night one night reading it, which, if you have a newborn, you know is as smart as jabbing yourself in the eye with a dull pencil.

And YOU can win this book, o! Internet my Internet, very easily. This is what you need to do. Click on this link here (or the widget on my sidebar) and join my group Aunt Becky’s Band of Merry Prankster’s at Savvy Source. You can even log in through your Facebook ID (also, if you want to be friends through Facebook, my name is Becky Sherrick Harks).

Then come back here and tell me you did so so I can easily count comments and let random number generator pick out a number on December 16.

The way it was explained to me, it’s going to be kind of like a big chat room where we can talk about stuff-n-things and braid each others hair and eat virtual pizza and drink virtual vodka. I think it’ll be a lot of fun, although I’m kind of nervous because WHAT IF I’M DOING IT WRONG? I’m not an early internet adopter, so if I’m all a/s/l? to you, please, forgive me.

Unless you’re into that stuff, of course.

  1. I joined, because I don’t want you to think I am a serial killer, but I feel like a phoney because I’m not a parent (to my knowledge). Is that bad? Should I leave?

  2. I joined.. They did ask bunches of questions about my boys, but I joined anyways. 🙂

    Oo! I even found your group! *happy dance* Hm. I guess I’d better get my boy ready for school.. Instead of surfing the net. Ah well. I’d rather surf.

  3. I don’t have kids so I can’t really sign up for Savvy Source but good luck to everyone who is competing! I am rooting for you. Wait, no YOU. Um, how about YOU?


  4. I headed over there and joined. I’m always up for some virtual hair-braiding. I even foundy your group and responded to your question with my very special (useless) brand of insight.

  5. Absolutely no idea what I just did, but I THINK I signed up and sent you a request. You definitely win at the Internet. Look in the mirror and repeat after me, “I am a winner. I am a winner.” Now sigh deeply.

  6. WTF?? I joined the group but can’t figure out how to add you as a friend.. All I could find was “follow this source”. I know I have internet issues. But I did request your friendship on Facebook because I do know how to do that.

  7. I’m going to join on Friday – which is the only day of the week that I’m unshackled from the constraints of the workplace.

    Of course, like other things you do I’m quite sure that you will do it wonderfully!

  8. Aunt Becky!! I hooked myself up with this snazzy thing you call Savvy Source. 🙂 At least I think I did..pretty sure I did. Oh damn…..

  9. Squee! I wanna braid your hair! Me me me!

    That said, Savvy Source is hurting my psyche (see the comment I left on Tanis’s blog) and you better accept that friend request FAST because I think I may have implicated myself in a cybercrime in trying to sign into Tanis’s group. Lord. I need a pill.

  10. Okay…I joined the site but……I’m lost now. Is that all I needed to do? I don’t really want to connect to facebook……..Can’t we segregate the two?

  11. Okay…I joined the site but……I’m lost now. Is that all I needed to do? I don’t really want to connect to facebook……..Can’t we segregate the two?

    Okay…I figured it out, yo!

    And yes….I find it hard to make friend with people without using my computer…….sniff, sniff.

  12. I joined but I don’t feel like I did it right because it only asked me one question about my child and not a bunch of questions like the rest of the gang here.

  13. So this is all about getting people to be your friend on FB and not about making virtual love to my book. That’s all right. I’ll take FB’s sloppy seconds. I’m easy like that.

    You rock Aunt Becky!! I love you.

  14. ‘kay, I think I figured that out. Consider me a prankster!

    You know why I like the Internet? Because it makes me feel like I have friends. Because the girls in my real life? Don’t want me in their groups.

    Who, me? A loser? nah.

  15. Just found your fabulous site and love it. I burst out into fits so many times while catching up on older posts that my daughter came over and said “why do you keep spitting on the computer mommy?” Count me in and FYI – I LOVE pizza, vodka and to sitting around braiding each others hair (as long as Sandra Dee is still in the bathroom tending to her bleeding ear so we can smoke a quick one 😉

  16. all hooked up. Not sure how much time I’ll have for it, but looks like a good place to whine about my 2 year olds misbehavior.

  17. Because The Real Reason I Had Kids Was To Buy All The Stuff My Parents Wouldn’t Buy Me at Mommy Wants Vodka on December 10, 2009 11:36 am

    Yes, One of the 1st things my daughter got (when she was old enough) was a pottery wheel (even though she didn’t ask for it), because my bitch mother heard me telling a friend I had seen it in her closet and she returned it. All I got was the damn box of clay that went with it. I ask you, was it my fault she didn’t hide the box properly? No! I say. It was downright mean and cruel and I still resent her for it. Anyway my daughter got one and I played with it once and now it is in the box in the garage, but I have my pottery wheel damnit! So there!

  18. I joined and all that and now I can’t get on and it doesn’t give you a “hey, idiot, did your forget your password and need it sent to you” option. I’ve run through the usual suspects on my passwords…

    I might just create an alter-ego for the group…hmmm….
