A Contest!!!

Is everyone up for a contest? Let's find out who knows the Ink Ladies the best! Good luck!
Each of us has answered the following question:

What was the weirdest present you ever received?

Below are our answers. In the comments, write down who you think goes with each number. The first person to get all the answers right wins the novel of their choice from the Ink Lady of their choice!

1. Pepper spray ... I was ecstatic. I'm a runner and dislike dogs as much as dogs love chasing runners.

2. A ream of printer paper. (I actually asked for it)

3. I got a pair of athletic socks from my piano teacher when I was in fifth grade. I was mad because she gave my sister something more fun. They ended up being good socks, though, even though I'm not athletic.

4. Blond bangs (as in hair bangs) with a blue streak in them attached to a blue headband. They were the 80s equivalent of hair extensions, I guess.

5. When I was 19, my mom gave me a cat cookie jar for my birthday... what's a nineteen year old supposed to do with a cookie jar!?! AND I don't really like cats.

6. At a work Christmas party, I got a skimpy nightie (a cute one, not the other kind)-- from a male co-worker, but it was not meant like that at all. I was married and he was engaged, and I'm pretty sure his fiance picked it out. I was surprised, but it was very cute.

7. The purple crocheted skirt and vest outfit my mom gave me for my birthday when I was a kid--about 8 or 9 (I'm pretty sure she bought it at a thrift store--she didn't crochet). I got it first thing in the morning and was expected to wear it to school. I think that was the first and last time I wore it. Oy--it was way ugly, even for the early 70's.

Okay, let's see:

I think #7 is Tami Norton.

#2 is Marsha.

#4 is Katie.

#5 is Crystal.

#1 is Robyn.

#3 is Elodia.

#6 is Marcia.

How'd I do??

Tamster said...

I'll be honest. I don't know anything about any of you except Marcia, whose blog led me here. I will guess that hers is #2, but I haven't a clue what to guess for anyone else. I just want to win her new book! :-) Tami Gooch

Ajoy said...

Oh, crud. I'm in trouble. NO CLUE!

I think since Tristi is the one who tried -even though she may not have got them all right- should win!

1. Robyn
2. Crystal
3. Katie
4. Elodia
5. Marsha
6. Tami
7. Marcia

I realy have no idea, but it is worth a shot right :)

Katie Parker said...

Of course it's worth a shot! Thanks for giving it a try!

Marcia Mickelson said...

Thanks for playing everyone. Let me just say that Tristi is so close I almost do want to give it to her. She just has two people switched. If anyone can figure out who that two are that are switched... Stay tuned for more clues coming up if nobody gets it!!

Tamster said...

Does she have the Marcia and Marsha switched? :-)

Marcia Mickelson said...

No, Tamster. That's not quite it. Actually, Tristi has both Marsha and Marcia right. That's a big hint. Someone has got to get it.

Tamster said...

I'm going to guess Crystal and Elodia are switched. :-) Tami

Anne Bradshaw said...

Here's my shot in the dark:
1. Crystal
2. Katie
3. Tami
4. Marsha
5. Robyn
6. Marcia
7. Eloida

Marcia Mickelson said...

Sorry, Anne. That's not right either. We'll have to think up some hints! Stay tuned.

Danyelle F. said...

I think Tristi has Tami and Robin mixed up. Am I right?

Marcia Mickelson said...

Sorry Danyelle. That's not it either. I hope someone's keeping track of all the ones that are wrong.

Tamster said...

Hey, Marcia, you never responded to my last guess. :-)

Marcia Mickelson said...

Sorry, tamster. your guess isn't right either.
