I enjoy being a girl

Actually, I don’t always enjoy being a girl, but the older I get, the closer I get to figuring it out. I figure that by the time I’m 95, I’ll totally have this being female thing nailed down. Honest!

Today’s contest offers you two chances to indulge your feminine side. (See, feminine side. Meaning guys are free to enter, too. Equal opportunity!) Our first prize is brought to you by Always and Dr. Rebecca Booth, author of The Venus Week: Discover the Powerful Secret of Your Cycle… at Any Age. I know—it’s, um, menstruation-themed. But the winner will receive a beautiful, reusable Envirosax tote bag packed with Dr. Booth’s book, a sample of new Always Infinity (their thinnest and lightest pad yet), total body exercise bands, Omega-3 vitamins, dark chocolate from Godiva, and gourmet cinnamon almonds. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s a pretty good amount of swag just for having ovaries.

But wait, there’s more—we’ll also have a second winner, who will receive a 5-piece assortment of American Greetings greeting cards. They’re beautiful and all ready for brightening someone’s day; they’re pre-stamped and everything. Just add your message, address, and pop ’em in the mail to let folks know you’re thinking about them.

So, our first winner gets the Venus Week swag pack, and the second winner gets cards from American Greetings. Either way, it’s kind of a good day to be a girl.

Want to win? First, go read the contest rules and regulations, then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, April 19th, 2009 to be entered. The winners will be determined by random number generation and ability to balance a book on their heads. Maybe.

Ready? Go!
