A Correction AND A CONTEST!!!!!

We have 2 orders of business:

1) I will not be posting on SCL on Wednesday. I will be posting on THURSDAY. I thought I would step in and save you some grief. I can't imagine the rioting and looting that might ensue if you went over to SCL looking for me and I wasn't there. Imagine the disappointment for Idaho, only in it's infancy on this site. Idaho, let me tell you what everyone who reads my site regularly already knows: a) I need therapy for narcissism and 2) I don't lie to my readers, ever.

But in light of the confusion I'd like to make it up to you....

2) A CONTEST! A CONTEST!! A CONTEST!!! And right on the heels of "The Trash Can of Terrific"! (Which really ended up being a "Pencil Cup of Crap". But, don't tell the contest winners. I'm pretty sure they don't have their gift yet, but only because it's still sitting on my kitchen counter...) Since it's fairly obvious that Jon Acuff has gone utterly postal and decided to let you-know-who post on his site I think we need to have a contest. All you have to do is guess what topic I'm writing about for his site on Thursday. I will watch the comments for this post from now until Thursday, 12 a.m. on the West Coast. You may ask me "yes" or "no" questions to help narrow down the topic. The 3 people who either guess the topic or guess closest will win. For example, imagine you ask, "Is the topic related to missions?" (which it's not but play along) and I say "yes", that's not enough to win. You have to break it down, piece by piece..."Is it about ethnic food?" Yes. "Is it about fried Gopher?" No. "Is it about getting sick?" Yes. "Is it about getting a parasite on a mission trip?" YES!! YOU WIN!! The first 3 people who guess the right answer will win, based on the time their correct answer was posted to blogger.

I can't reveal what you will win because it is directly related to the post topic. I know that's risky but since when don't you like free stuff?

So here we go... You've got a day and a half starting NOW.... Let the questions begin!!!!!

Does it involve choir robes?

Does it have something to do with what a member of the church would wear to service?

teamstrand said...

is it about how much much you love to do laundry for your family? Cause that would be funny.

Stacy from Louisville said...

Dog Snob:
No
No

Teamstrand:
Shut up

(Oh my goodness! Did she just tell a reader to shut up? I don't like her very much. I'm telling Jon.)

teamstrand said...

seems like the love if for someone who isn't a team player...but a self admitted snob.

bub said...

Does it have something to do with the pastor's wife's shoes? Wait, too specific. Does it have something to do with the pastor's wife?

Stacy from Louisville said...

Bub:
YES

Raw Faith Real World said...

Does it have anything to do with 1. weird shirts... or

2. my particular favorite of all time horribleness... the thong underwear from the Landover Baptist store that says stuff like "I gave my heart to Jesus and now he never calls."

Raw Faith Real World said...

Or perhaps that creepy thing that happens in women's groups where all the women start dressing like the pastor's wife and get the same haircut?

Stacy from Louisville said...

Raw Faith Real World:
1) sort of

2) no, but my mouth is agape and my forhead is in my hands and I'm not sure if I should own up to laughing

Raw Faith Real World said...

Hey want a good blog topic... one word... Evangecube! Where have I been to miss this one???? Evangcube.org I think... make sure you watch the video demo. One of my students just gave me one with the handy dandy holster carrying case so I can be ready at a moments notice. ;)

Stacy from Louisville said...

RFRW:
No and ewww

Stacy from Louisville said...

RFRW:
Evangecube - we own 2, my daughter took it to show and tell in first grade and shared the Gospel. She wanted to take the makeshift baptistry we made out of yogurt containers, homemade paste and dental floss but it was too big for the car. Bummer.

Raw Faith Real World said...

Lol what a great show and tell. Hey have you seen the Jesus is My Friend "worship" video on youtube. It's sort of the worship version of the Partridge family? You can spot it with the pink background and the 80's bible college hair. The lyrics are great. This is why people think we are crazy.

Amanda Mae A said...

Does it have to do with the fact that the Pastor's wife is apparently not allowed to wear anything controversial, and it therefore somehow limited to floral dresses and high-waisted, tapered-leg pants?

bub said...

Is it about how the pastor's wife's shoes tell what kind of pastors wife she is?

Stacy from Louisville said...

Amanda Mae:
You're on the right track

Bub:
You're on the right track


But there's more to it so keep going.

Hint: One of my favorite topics

Beth said...

Is it about those sweaters pastor's wives all seem to wear? You know the ones...big and bulky with some sort of design, usually seasonal or flowery?

I'm waiting for someone somewhere more clever than I to address those sweaters. Please, let it be you!

bub said...

How the pastor wife dresses reveals what kind of pastor's wife she is? Oh, in a way that would be imitating Jon's style of writing?

Jan said...

Is it about denim jumpers?

bub said...

I know what it is? Funny things on t-shirts that pastors wives could wear!!!!

Jeremy said...

Could it be about the infamous jumper?

Found here: http://www.modestapparelusa.com/jumpers.html

Beth said...

That's my second thought, the love of jumpers/overalls/anything else in that...let's say "genre"...of clothing?

Stacy from Louisville said...

Jan:
No

Bub:
No
Imitating Jon's writing? Maybe, but it's my topic for sure.

Jeremy:
No

eastern ky pastor said...

Is it the designer t-shirts, such as the maternity t-shirt you pointed out to us?

Is it a list of what designer t-shirts various types of pastors wives would wear?

bub said...

Hmmm, what about which clothing matches which pastor's wife? Where you see the clothes in one picture and the pastors wife in another? If not, there should be one like that. We are coming up with lots of good ideas for posts on here Stacy!

Stacy from Louisville said...

Everybody:

You're on the right track with the pastor's wife idea but the post has to do more with this coded hint:

B.C.

Jeremy said...

Baggy Cullottes?

http://www.modestapparelusa.com/culottes.html

I guess I am just stuck on frumpy clothing. Or I'm secretly trying to sell "modest apparel" here. Frankly, I'm scaring myself.

bub said...

What pastor's wives wore before Jesus was born?!?!?!?!?!? What pastor's wives wore before they found Jesus? Ugh.....

Stacy from Louisville said...

Jeremy:
You are scaring me

Bub:
Hint - B.C. does not stand for Before Christ

Beth said...

Is it about the type of Bible Cover a pastor's wife dresses her Bible in?

Boy this is fun!

bub said...

What future pastor's wives wore to bible college?

Dog snob said...

What pastors wives wear to Bible collage?

What pastors wives wear when they sneak out at Bible Collage?

What shoes pastors wives wear to sneak out of Bible collage?

Does B.C mean Bible collage?

Dog snob said...

What clothes a woman wear to Bible collage that say "I wanna be a pastors wife"?

Stacy from Louisville said...

Bub and Dog Snob:
Yes!! You're close enough!! You WIN!

How To Know If You Should Marry A Preacher In Bible College

sam said...

How pastors wives dressed in bible college compared to how they dress now....? i have no idea just thought it would be fun to contribute :)

sam said...

bub said...

(stunned) Did I win a... a... a pastor's wife? I can hardly believe it. Do I get to pick the pastor's wife? I'm so full of questions. Hmmmm, I think my wife has some questions too so I better run, Thanks for the big co-win with dog snob!

Dog snob said...

Yea I won!! Haha.

Uh...what did I win?? (hoping it isn't a pastors wife seeing as how I'm female and all and that might freak my husband out a bit) ;)

That was fun, thanks everyone :)

Brenda said...
