Has anyone seen my morning…? I seem to have misplaced it.

Okay, I’m being economical, here—we’ll do the winner of the weekend Wii football contest and the next contest all in one place. All crazy-like! Hold on tight!

First off, our winner from this weekend is… commenter 77, kerwindimple. Kerwindimple has a rather interesting name (may we call you Dimple for short?), but nevertheless, she (he?) is our lucky winner. Hooray! Please check your email! (And thanks to the fine folks at Atari and their helpers at Dan Klores Communications for the prize donation!)

Next up is this week’s contest. The holidays are coming, you know. You need to start thinking about greeting cards. And little gifts for all the people in your life you appreciate. And all sorts of other things. Know who can help you with a lot of that? Hallmark. I have two $25 Hallmark gift cards up for grabs for two lucky Want Not readers. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a few little things taken care of for free? Of course it would.

Want to win? First, go review the contest rules and regulations, then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (that’s 8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Wednesday, November 18th, 2009 to be entered. Winners to be determined by random number generation and amusing tagline.

Ready? Go!
