Tone Your Glutes on Your Oven!

I think we all agree that Mary Campbell should be the winner of this *random* giveaway. So she is. Mary, contact me to get your yoga mat! Whoo hoo!

Hello, my charming friends,

Yes it's been a wee spell since I last posted. AND WHAT OF IT [insert defensive tone from blogger]! But while there is much to be sad about in the present economy, and in the news in general today, I can at least bring you a small bit of humor, a stainless steel kitchen upgrade, and the potential to use your kitchen to tone your tush here at Crabmommy. Courtesy of GE.

Indeedy, until July 6, 2009 you fine readers who still have a spot of cashola in your pockets can splash out and turn your kitchen stainless for the same price as the regular ho-hum finishes you plebby folk usually opt for.

More important, you can also use your new kitchen as a home gym, without any need of costly home workout equipment. It's a win-win. Check it, yo:
I think it's quite fun. And since I am married to an architect, it is certainly my moral duty to keep the building and reno profession in business. My husband may not have a job, but maybe you and yours do and thus perhaps you would like to do us all a favor and get yourself a spanking new kitchen appliance or three, pronto!

Please do peruse GE's products and discount info here.

Sadly GE isn't offering me a new kitchen for running this promo, but they are offering me a yoga mat. And since I already have two and this blobby blogging bod has no interest in either, I instead am offering said yoga mat and handy carrying case to a lucky reader, through this week. Sometime towards the weekend, or whenever I dang feel like it, I will pick at random a winner from the comments and soon your new yoga mat will be winging its way to you just in time for summer, when, as we all know, you most need to diminish that jiggly underarm flap and transform that squashy foamcore midsection from a mom-tum into a set of washboard abs.

I am also soliciting email for a new upcoming Crabmommy mini-series: Hire That Mommy! Or Hire That Daddy! For this I ask you to send me your resume, or your spouse's resume or your sister's or whoever in your family/friendship circle is presently unemployed. I will then post the chosen ones to my blog with a little intro about the advertised worker, and see if we can spread the word to all seven of my readers and thus, through the magic of the Information Super Highway, also knows as The Worldwide Web, get said person to perhaps find some new contacts and—you never know—maybe even a job.

Please send me interesting resumes only. Sex workers preferred, but all will be considered. Even Mormons.

I'd love to win a yoga mat! I think I'm the first commenter, though, and they never win! Haha thanks for the giveaway!

Good timing on your post...I have to go order a new dishwasher today. Mine died last week, & with 4 kids, I'm already sick of hand washing!

Oh my god. My personal favorite is the Dish It Out. It seems slightly naughty and potentially unsanitary. Here's me giving you a squatting thumbs up for finding this gem of a video.

I'm a Mormon! I don't need a job, but I do need a yoga mat. And someone to force me to do yoga... wonder where that giveaway is...

That was hysterical. Except my 8-year old watched it over my shoulders and now he's flinging open the refrigerator doors and ketchup is falling out.

Thank you for a dose of humor. I can't believe this video is real. Maybe your yoga mat can come sit in my closet and keep my yoga mat company. I actually bought new yoga clothes for inspiration but likely they will just become "comfy" clothes to lounge in while consuming ice cream.

Please give Mary the mat. We could use it lots

Wynnster said...

I have an under-employed husband does that count?
Do not let me win the yoga mat, that would just make me feel bad when I get lazy and don't work out.

mary said...

Please let Mary win the mat.

Signed, Mary Campbell
