Smart Man Candy Monday and a Smartphone Giveaway

I hate Smarties®. When I was in Nursing School, one of the second-year students used to bring Smarties® to our exams and hand them out to us first-years. It was meant to relieve test anxiety. You know, Smarties® to help us be smarter? But for some reason whenever I would bite into them they would aerosolize into a zillion microscopic granules of sweet and sour choke-me-to-death. To this day I never eat them.

I might not like Smarties®, but a smart man I like. If a woman had written the Bible she might have said, “A smart man, who can find? He is more precious than a 41-piece box of Cocabella Chocolates.”

A handsome man in and of himself is nice and all, but if he can’t give good witty repartee then he don’t impress me much. Like the flash ripples on your phone, a merely pretty man might be mesmerizing for a moment, but beyond that he’s pretty useless.

Inside Movie’s List of 50 Smartest People in Hollywood puts the fabulous George Clooney at number 13.  This guy is no flash ripple.

When I went looking for pictures of Mr. Clooney, I decided that one picture or three of People Magazine’s 2006 Sexiest Man Alive was simply not enough, so I hope you’ll take a seat and sip a cuppa while enjoying this All-You-Can-Eat Clooney Eye-Candy Buffet that I found just for you. (But don’t forget to come back; I’m announcing my next giveaway and it’s a good one.)

Since my last giveaway was such a smashing success, I’ve decided to throw another one to coincide with Man Candy Monday. But a smart man requires a smart giveaway. That’s why I’m giving away an AT&T HP Veer 4G Smartphone. Yep, a brand spankin’ new Smartphone. No joke. Check out Engadget’s Review and awesome pictures HERE.

And even though the opposite of a Smartphone would be Fatty McButterpants, she knows a good deal when she sees one and this is one.

I received this Smartphone at BlogHer as part of the famous BlogHer Swag Kitten-A-Go-Go raves about.

I really want to keep this Smartphone–I need one–BUT I don’t get AT&T in my house unless I stand on the back of my couch balanced on one foot while wearing a tinfoil hat on my head. This isn’t AT&T’s fault. I live in a nutty place where it takes an act of God to get a burger joint built or a cellphone tower installed.

I’ve heard that people who agree to let them be placed on their property get hate mail and death threats. (Although I would imagine that if the angry villagers did lynch you they’d only use rope made from organic hemp, locally grown of course.)

So no AT&T HP Veer 4G Smartphone for me. But my loss is your gain. I’ll bet some of you could use this Smartphone. I could sell it I suppose, but I really want to give it to one of my readers, so that’s what I’m doing.


This time I mean it. I’m really moving to WordPress at It is going to happen very, very soon, but I don’t want to lose any of you along the way. So the Official Start of this Smartphone Giveaway will coincide with that move.

If you stayed on this long you have a special opportunity to pre-enter to win. Please comment here if this is a giveaway you are interested in and I’ll consider that your first entry. There will be bonus entries offered when I officially announce it.

Stay Tuned. I’ll be announcing the official start of this giveaway as soon as I possibly can do so. And in the meantime enjoy the Clooney-fest on me. And if you just want to chat with me about GC, I’m more than happy to do that. Please comment!

Happy Monday!

  1. So what do you think is the deal with the women who date George Clooney? Do they do it for the publicity or do they think they'll be the one to catch him? He is quite good looking but almost too good.

  2. Ahhhh! George Clooney. .long been my fave by far of all the Hollywood fellas. Just something about that guy, he so reminds me of "old Hollywood" and "real" movie stars. And PLEASE enter me for the SmartPhone! I have AT&T already; a SmartPhone would be such a FUN treat. LOVE your blog!!!

  3. Sharon, I think it is the ultimate fantasy for a woman to catch the man no other woman could snare. That is the premise of EVERY romance novel I've ever read. Getting GC to fall madly in love with YOU and commit only to YOU has to be a huge allure. And it happens. Look at Annette Benning and Warren Beatty.

  4. Well, gotta say that I love George Clooney, but that smart phone is awesome. And since Raina jumped in the pool with her phone on her (and it was the only phone without insurance, of course, a complete idiotic oversight on my part) we could sure use a new one. 🙂

  5. I'd love a smart phone. But, we are not on the AT&T network. And, we are too cheap to pay for a data plan. Goodness, we just moved to texting about 6 months ago. A data plan will take several more years. So, while I'd love to win your giveaway, I have no way to use the prize.

  6. I have never owned a smart phone, and I AM in the AT&T coverage area (according to the map, but of course you never really know until you have the device IN HAND to find out…)Rebecca(SewWhat?)

  7. I love Smarties. They are one of most favorite candies ever. When we go trick or treating together, I claim dibs on your Smartie Stash.I'm interested in winning your phone, I think. If not, I'll get back with you. For now, count me in. (When my IT Slave gets home from Cardio-Rehab – because, you know, I work my IT Slave really, really hard, and thus his need for Cardio-Rehab – I'll have him check it out for sure to see that it fits my needs in a phone. Wouldn't want to deprive someone else if it won't work for me, after all.)I just read a blog today by a woman who I'm pretty sure used to work in George Clooney's Hollywood machine (she changed the guy's name, but I'm pretty sure from the hints she dropped that it was him. My Nancy Drew senses told me so). So I had been thinking about His Gorgeousness this very morning. Interesting coinkydink.
