UPDATE: The winning comment number was 82, belonging to reader Amy. She has been contacted.


I’m giving away three items that I’ve recently linked to.

Consider it a late Christmas gift to one of you.

One lucky winner receives these three gifts that I received in my mailbox. Sure, I could keep them, but what good is that for you?!

— A girl fit medium Mario Lemieux Foundation shirt. If it’s not your size, I bet you have a Penguins fan in your life it would fit.

— A pack of adorable hand drawn Pittsburgh skyline note cards with envelopes. You cannot currently purchase these as the artist is on vacation until February 2011.

— A PIT Jet Set moleskin journal with four 412 note cards.

To enter, leave a comment, one comment per valid email address. So you have something to say, what is the one resolution you’ve made for the new year that you’re most likely to keep?

While I’d like to say it’s my six-pack abs resolution, crunches hurt. So I’m going with my resolution to finish a screenplay, no matter how shitty it may be. I will get to “The End” in 2011 even if it means the last page says, “And they all died. The end.”

You have until tomorrow, January 4 at 5:00 p.m. to enter, at which time will choose a winner. If your comment goes to spam, no worries. I’ll periodically check and fish them out.

Good luck!

    Keep trying to clean up the clutter and get rid of things we don’t need or love. (So how does that go along with entering a contest to acquire more stuff?)

    The only resolution I’ve kept up with so far this year is to eat fried food every day. Of course, I’ve been in New Orleans this week, so that’s been a cake walk.
