Win a Minivan!

So here's the thing.

I am totally planning on winning that $600,000,000 tonight. 

But I need some good mojo going into the drawing. 

This is where you come in.

Leave a comment below along the lines of "Go, Marianne!" BEFORE the drawing.

And if I win the big drawing (millions and millions of dollars)?

I'm getting you a minivan, loyal reader.*

That's right. 

A brand spanking new minivan.

You can even pick out the color.

Because EVERYBODY deserves a minivan.

We'll all go shopping together.

Maybe Oprah will come.

Poor old minivan.


Let's make it happen!


*Contest (based on Marianne actually winning 100+ million) limited to first 30 commenters.  Odds of winning: 1 in a bazillion.  Marianne's thrill in providing free minivans to loyal readers = infinite.

  1. My minivan days are over, thank the good lawd or holymary or whomever. You can take my share and buy me a ticket to come see you in Chicago. We are going to fatten your sister up.

    1. If there was ever a woman who deserved to win a new mivivan, it's you, Julie! I was secretly hoping you'd comment because you sorta have an "in" with the Powers that Be. Plus, this would totally make up for your gal Dawn losing Survivor. There's a post I've been meaning to write on that....

  3. I still have a picture of my minivan odo when it hit the 100,000 flip. Thankfully, I've sent that baby packin' and now am the proud owner a sleek, silver, 8-year-old VW Passat. But it only has 43k miles. Unbelievable! Hey...I found you through Kirby, and I'm laughing, crying, and leaking. New follower. Definitely.

    1. Thank you for coming & staying!!! While a Passat sounds wonderfully sexy & fun, I have somehow morphed into a weird kinda minivan lover. Like I'm planning on having one until I die. Stockholm Syndrome??

  4. Gooooooooo Marianne!

    CAM will be happy. Did you see my status the other day? She was lamenting the fact that that we don't have a minivan. She told me "When I grow up, I am going to have a minivan." (say that will all the six-year-old attitude you can muster. Heavy emphasis on the "I".) At which point I beat my head against the steering wheel of my hard-earned non-minivan. If you win, and give us a minivan, I'm just sayin' -- her dad will be doing the driving. :)

    1. Oh, Jennifer. A minivan can CHANGE YOUR LIFE. The easy separation of children, the diminished fighting, the glory of 6 cylinders...

      One day, my friend. One day. You will know the beauty and divinity of a minivan.

  5. Go Marianne! Maybe Lexus will come out with a minivan in the next 24 hours too!

  6. Lack of a mini van is the only thing preventing me from becoming a hockey mom, so Go Marianne!

  8. One, two, three, four, let's hope Marianne gets unpoor; five, six, seven, eight, winning the money would be great! Go Marianne!

    Okay, can we negotiate on the minivan? Being childless and all, I'd much rather have a cute little Kia Soul, or a Fiat. Okay?

    1. Shhh. I would've gotten you whatever you wanted, Kianwi.

      And there has never been a better cheer ever written.

      Thank you!!

    Win that powerball and get me a van!!!
    Gooooooooooo Marianne!

    (okay, but seriously am not sure I can handle having THREE of them in the driveway...take pity on this poor mother and get me a sedan of my own...and btw, one of ours has 35,000 more miles than yours)

    1. Damn. You just tied Kianwi for best cheer. Who knew that true genius could come on the heels of each other???

      I think 3 minivans would've qualified you for your own reality show, no?

  12. I could totally see Oprah popping in and yelling "YOU get a Minivan! YOU get a Minivan, EVERYONE GETS A MINIVAN!!!!" I seriously can't stop giggling at that image. Thank you for making my sleep deprived day. And I have my fingers and toes crossed for you.

    1. Thank you, signlemumof!! That was the exact image I'd hoped The View would cover. Or maybe the Nightly News.

      Damn odds of winning zillions ruining everything...

  14. Pulling for you to win, as if the "fates" will ever let this happen through a blog.

    Congratulations on the mileage, Marianne!

    When my old Barrcuda turned 100,000, I had my dad and uncle in the car. Both of these men were ho hum about the event. When our Expedition-gas-guzzler-paid-for car/truck/supervan turned 200,000, my hubby and his friend (both have Alzheimer's) were in the car and both of them were not impressed. (Our sensible car was totaled by a DUI driver, and not replace because it is sensible to have only one car when your hubby has Alzheimier's and I am gone.)

    By the way, I never cease to be amazed by the "mileage" you get with your replies on this blog, and always enjoy what you write on my blog. You are too young to remember Archie Bunker, but his chair is featured on my current blog.

    Again, pulling for you win for us all.

    1. It was worth a shot, right? I would've bought a round of drinks when you hit 200,000 - that's a moment!

      I totally remember Archie Bunker & I'm running over to your blog now!!

  15. Haha...I stood in line for my ticket, too...and out of all my number, I got ONE. ONE silly number.
