Goddamn It, She’s *Thinking* Again…

by Rachael on October 27, 2009 · 66 comments


Update: Looking for the results? Check em out!

A few weeks ago, you may recall that I held a giveaway for a bottle of Firefly Sweet Tea vodka in return for some sweet ass Halloween costume ideas. And, that I said a lil somethin’ somethin’ was in the works to hopefully make that a recurring thing here on the ole blog.

Well, it turns out that, after some consideration, it was just a little too illegal for Firefly to jump on board with. Hey, I get it. We can’t all be such rebels.

So imagine my surprise when, last week, an enormous box stamped with their logo showed up at my apartment. B and I tore into it like children on Christmas morning to find a plethora of pitchers, swizzle sticks, cups, stickers, and T SHIRTS galore.

And that is where you come in, my friends. I have two dude shirts and three cute girly “ringer” tees to send your way (click for pics), so that five lucky boys and girls may proudly boast their love for the Southern nectar of the gods, in style.

I’m like the Willy (Wilma?) Wonka of vodka up in here.

ANYHOO, so now the only question is, what you gotta do to win one?

All right, lessee. I was looking through the Post Secrets and thought about how a lot of them are kind of like 2 second TMI Thursdays. And THEN I was thinking about how a lot of you always say you’d love to write one, but blah blah your mother in law/grandfather/principal reads your blog, and you’re just not quite comfortable putting that shiz out there, yanno, with your e-name on it and all.

SO. How cool would it be if you guys maybe made one? A quickie TMI picture with a caption, I mean? For example, look at this Post Secret from yesterday…


Perfection, right? TMI in seven tiny little words. Or 1,007, if you’re counting the pickle. (NOTE: It can be whatever you want, however many words. I don’t care what it is, as long as it’s a picture that tells your TMI nugget you want to share. There are NO RULES.)

So, all you need to do to be entered is create your own little TMI picture. You can draw it, e-draw it, steal it from Google, I don’t care! If you don’t use photoshop or Power Point, the website Fotoflexer is free and works just as well- you can add text on the site, and then just save it to your computer. If you don’t want to get fancy with text editing, you can just email me the picture and the caption you want, and I’ll do it for you.

Now, as for the anonymity question. If you send it to me from your email, I promise it is super top secret and confidential and I’ll never tell a soul. After all, I’ve shared plenty in the blog’s lifetime to make us even, doncha think?

BUT if you’re truly digging deep for this TMI and you don’t want even me to know who it is, you can log in to a gmail I created just for this purpose and email it to me from there.

Log in at Gmail with the username: tmithursday

Password: tmit1234

And just email it to me, top secretly, at my email:


heylivitluvit at gmail dot com.

The first five submissions I get will win the T shirts! (Second Note: But I will post ALL of the submissions, anonymously, of course.) So if you send it to me from the anonymous gmail account, make sure to attach a pen name or something so I can ask you all to email me once I get the winners, who will be notified on Thursday morning as the TMI pictures go up!

And, yes, I will have a couple in there myself… you’ll have to guess which ones.

You’ve got til midnight-ish tomorrow (Wednesday), so send ‘em in now!!!

My entire blog is these friggin’ things. Can’t you just pick one?

Fine. I’ll do it.

Pressure is a bitch.

You can do it. I BELIEVE!

2 Maxie October 27, 2009 at 7:32 am

I think I should have saved a secret or two. This is proving way harder than I imagined.

Just go to the bathroom. I’m sure something will “pop” up…

3 Just A Girl October 27, 2009 at 7:55 am

Um exactly. My first thought was that I could never be a vegan but only because of CHEESE but that’s totally just enough information. Fuck.

Maybe go with your second thought. Or your first non-dairy thought. ;-)

4 flipflopsintherain October 27, 2009 at 7:37 am

I’ve found e-stealing to be the best form of contest entering.

Oh, I’m with you 100%.

5 RachelSmiles October 27, 2009 at 7:40 am

ok i did it.

i hope you’ll still be my friend :)

Ahahaha! I LOVE yours!

6 Lemmonex October 27, 2009 at 7:43 am

Oh, I have some doozies…wonder if you could guess mine. Probably…

Likewise, I’m sure…

7 fizzgigabyte October 27, 2009 at 7:51 am

a rogue post secret. I like it!

that site makes me paranoid people are leaving secrets for me. i dont even know that many people. I’m wacked.

Maybe this is your chance to leave one for THEM!

8 Just A Girl October 27, 2009 at 8:04 am

Ok I’m sending you mine. Tempting to send it anonymously but I’m preeeetty sure since there are only like, 5 people in the picture, you’ll know who it is :)

Awwww. GOT IT!!!

9 justjp October 27, 2009 at 8:05 am

Wow, I fully support this idea in theory, but after reading the process, my laziness vetoed it. We will see what happens.

Emailing me a picture and a subject line is too much “process”? It’s not even Monday anymore!

10 shine October 27, 2009 at 8:19 am

Secrets, I has them. Or do I?

I’ll see what I can come up with.

You know you want to.

11 Kellie October 27, 2009 at 8:33 am

Shit, shit, shit. Drawing a blank. WTF. I know a ton of inappropriate shit has happened to me. I must erase it from memory b/c it is too horrible to remember!

I believe in you, woman! Or at least in Wade’s ability to remember an embarrassing story about you…

12 Alice October 27, 2009 at 8:36 am

ohmahGAH i can’t wait to see these. you’re going to post ‘em all, right??

Every last one, even if it takes a couple weeks. Promise.

13 Children of the 90s October 27, 2009 at 8:43 am

I love postsecret….I always imagine what I would write, but I can never think of anything truly shocking. I guess that means I’m not thinking very hard.

But this is more fun, because it’s a smaller pool of possible people who enter, no?

14 J October 27, 2009 at 9:01 am

I can’t do ANY graphic shit on my computer.

Either that, or I’m too lazy to learn.

It’s free! It takes two secs- you don’t have to download a thing, it’s all online.

15 Candice October 27, 2009 at 9:07 am

Bahaha, I cannot WAIT to see the results.

Trust me… they are shaping up to be FABULOUS.

16 carissajaded October 27, 2009 at 9:08 am

I’m gonna really try to get crafty with whatever this free software you linked to. But I’m really not. But I’ll try.

You did it! Woot!!!

17 Nickie October 27, 2009 at 9:09 am

I’m totally going to do this. Now I just have to think of something, OMG I got it. lol.

Oh, I can’t wait..

18 Nikki October 27, 2009 at 9:10 am

ooh a challenge. And I do have one of those TMI’s I’m too ashamed to share. Only somehow I’ve told everyone the story, but putting it writing is like tatooing it on your back.

Do it do it! I won’t tell, I promise!

19 Ella Unread October 27, 2009 at 9:12 am

U used us to get a Halloween costume idea! Shame on you LiLu!
Come on, just mail the hazardous content! we just want the booze!

First of all, I openly stated that was a competition to choose what we’d be for Halloween! And second of all, do I look like a bar? Because I really wish I was one… but I’m pretty sure I’m not. ;-)

20 Ella Unread October 27, 2009 at 10:23 am

You are breaking my heart into a thousand pieces :’( snif

Mine too! Now you’ve got me day dreaming about a booze tree of some kind!

21 Christy October 27, 2009 at 9:23 am

Done. And. Done. Tell me if you got it :)

Got it!!! And I DIED laughing. Hahaha awesome!!!

22 Christy October 27, 2009 at 1:49 pm

So do we see the winners and others on Thursday??? I don’t even know if I can wait. Jeeeeeze.

Oh yes… even if I have to split them up over a couple weeks!

23 Stoneskin October 27, 2009 at 9:27 am

You want us to do this MID WEEK? Blimey. Can’t you just give me a t-shirt knowing that I would win?!

It doesn’t work that way, my friend!

24 That Kind of Girl October 27, 2009 at 9:31 am

Brilliant. Brilliant. But wait — surely you mean “the best five” and not “the first five,” right?

Oh, I can’t choose the best. They’re all amazing… so I’m cheating. First five.

25 Hip Hop Hippie October 27, 2009 at 9:53 am

Oh how I love to win, but am so, so lazy. I wonder which personality trait will prevail? I love the pickle pic!

I know! I LOVE Post Secret.

26 Doniree October 27, 2009 at 10:07 am

What a great idea, I’m so in :)

Woot! Can’t wait!

27 Liebchen October 27, 2009 at 10:08 am

I really like this idea – and I’ve definitely thought before about sending secrets in/recognized some that could have been my own.

We’ll see what I can come up with later. I feel like doing it at work isn’t the best idea.

I totally understand. Plenty of time!

28 Jules October 27, 2009 at 10:13 am

Did I win yet??????

Unbelievably, you were the SIXTH person to send me one. BUT I will send you a consolation prize if you send me your addy… emailing now!

29 Marie October 27, 2009 at 10:18 am

What JP said. Laziness…taking over….have to do work…what?! I do love that tshirt though…

It would look adorable on you.

30 Tee aka The Diva's Thoughts October 27, 2009 at 10:41 am

What a cool contest idea!

Why thank ya.

31 Mike October 27, 2009 at 10:48 am

I can’t send it in. I keep no secrets!

This is probably why nobody likes me :P

I know. I can’t believe I have any left…

32 littlemsblogger October 27, 2009 at 11:27 am

I’m a saint and led the perfect life. I have no TMIs…


Maybe someone stupid or drunk enough might believe my statement, but I thought I’d try.

I am neither drunk nor stupid… (enough). ;-)

33 Miss Scorpio October 27, 2009 at 11:59 am

I guess I should start my day with you! I don’t doubt I’m now running to catch up.

At this point, after the ones I’ve gotten… believe me, this ain’t about the t-shirts anymore.

34 Riff Randell October 27, 2009 at 12:12 pm

Awesome. I’m so in.


35 Elizabeth Marie October 27, 2009 at 12:15 pm

Do you already have 5? Because I would only do this for you…and a Firefly T shirt.

I’ll never tell.

36 Aritza, Goddess of .. October 27, 2009 at 12:16 pm

Awww such a good idea ! I’m so excited .. Yay !
Long live my secret :P lol

I’m so excited!!

37 Adrienzgirl October 27, 2009 at 12:27 pm

You are such a giver. Will you be my girlfriend?

Love! :P



38 andhari October 27, 2009 at 12:39 pm

This sounds interesting. I have a bunch of secrets I can’t write in my blog ;p

Do it up!

39 Chelsea Talks Smack October 27, 2009 at 12:56 pm

Shit…I dont have any secrets. Wait…..hold on, lemme think..

Liar liar pants on fire…

40 melanie October 27, 2009 at 1:08 pm

Hmmm. I tried to log in and it said your account was temporarily disabled….I’m going to try again in a little while. Anyway, I just posted my story, not really a TMI just a funny story.


I fixed it! So sorry about that… it must’ve gotten confused with people logging in from different places?

41 Cheddar October 27, 2009 at 1:11 pm

Prizes AND secrets AND liquor paraphernalia? YES! Count me in.

I am a giver.

42 bananas. October 27, 2009 at 1:36 pm

ooh wait i have one! you probably already got a million but i’ll send it to ya anyway.

btw love your costumes for this year. you just got way more awesome!

Oh, there will be pictures! ;-)

43 Laura at Vodka Logic October 27, 2009 at 2:04 pm

Are you going to share them all.. even though the t shirts are now won?

Oh, absolutely!

44 Laura at Vodka Logic October 27, 2009 at 2:04 pm

I’ll think of something and send anyway

EXcellent. ;-)

45 siovhan October 27, 2009 at 2:17 pm

hmmm if you’re still gonna share them all, i think maybe i’ll have to still try and enter.

Do it, do it!

Peer pressure is fun.

46 That Kind of Girl October 27, 2009 at 2:58 pm

omg! omg! I was wracking my brains for a story of such TMI-itude that I would only be willing to share it anonymously, and then I THOUGHT OF ONE. So excited to go home and design it.

47 Rachel October 27, 2009 at 3:18 pm

Umm I want to do this right now, but I can’t Google the images I need at work. They will be blocked. Tonight, you’ll get it tonight :)

48 Sadako October 27, 2009 at 3:20 pm

I would so do this except I suck at making cute artsy pictures. Do the people who send in post secrets do those pics themselves or does the guy? I’m in awe of them for their art sense and for having such weird secrets.

49 Suburban Sweetheart October 27, 2009 at 3:30 pm

You’re crazy, Wilhemina Wonka.

50 f.B October 27, 2009 at 3:59 pm

No lie? One of the best ideas ever. This idea has levels. Crazy. I’ll get working.

51 April Gross October 27, 2009 at 4:31 pm

Signed, sealed, delivered…you’re awesome!!!

52 Late-Night Drama Queen October 27, 2009 at 5:23 pm

Did anyone else notice in the picture of the dude shirt that the front and back views DO NOT match??? Front view is all “Hi, you’re hot and ripped, let’s get it on,” while the back is “Dad, is that you?”

53 hanako66 October 27, 2009 at 5:27 pm

so excited to see these

54 Lucy October 27, 2009 at 7:04 pm

This sounds like fun, over my head but sounds like the results will be a lot of fun and when I see it I will probably go “Oh, I could have done that!”

55 Jessica October 27, 2009 at 7:35 pm

Dude you are in the bigtime if you’re getting liquor from marketers. You are my hero.

56 mandy October 27, 2009 at 7:59 pm

I cannot wait to see all the submissions! It will be epic…

57 amanda October 27, 2009 at 8:01 pm

this is far too complicated…and i’m far too lazy.

however, i’ve been DYING to try this sweet tea vodka.
sadly, they don’t sell it around me. i wonder if they’d send
me someeee? mmmm. i think that’d just be lovely.
call me, firefly, call me!

58 alexa - cleveland's a plum October 27, 2009 at 11:39 pm

i need a reminder from you to tell me to do this tomorrow at work.

can you please not only being the most awesome blogger in the world but also be an alarm clock to your readers?


59 Witless Fool October 28, 2009 at 3:33 am

Can’t wait to see what you’ve got!

60 BigMamaCass October 28, 2009 at 2:00 pm

shit! i am soooo uncreative :(

61 Jeney October 28, 2009 at 6:08 pm

I finally sent mine… hopefully it’s not too late!!

62 Tabitha October 28, 2009 at 6:44 pm

Genius. Absolute friggin’ genius.

Also, thanks for the Fotoflexer link! I had NO idea there was such a great (free) tool available online. You rock!

63 [F]oxymoron October 28, 2009 at 8:14 pm

Ha! I look forward to this post.

64 K @ Blog Goggles October 29, 2009 at 5:07 am

Dang, I missed this.

If I hadn’t, what if we didn’t want to be anonymous? That cool too?
