Leslie's Omnibus

Regular Riders

Update II: We Have A Recipient: Livey has gracefully deferred to Maeve, who'll have to let me know what kind of gift card she'd like.

Update: We Have A Winner -- The delightful Livey of Northwoods Woman fame.
Since she doesn't have a Potbelly's nearby, I wonder if she'll take a gift card for Perkins Restaurant? (And I know she's got one nearby.)

Anyway, thanks again for playing. I will bribe you again another time, because this was just too darned much fun.
_____

To my loyal 40, the approximately 40 of you who stop by every day, please stand up and identify in the comments. Number 40 in the comments gets a $20 Potbelly's gift certificate. You can identify more than once, but not more than once in a row.

My faithful few, you have no idea how much I appreciate your loyalty... and your constancy. In the meantime, let me make this small gesture of thanks.

You've got forty comments.

Go ahead. Make my month.
_____

What's Potbelly's? Only my favorite place to stop for breakfast, let alone lunch. If you don't have one in your area and you happen to be number 40 in the comments, I can substitute Panera Bread, Caribou Coffee or Starbucks gift cards. I'm not so picky about the gift as I am about seeing just how many of you I recognize... and to get to know those of you I don't!
_____

I'm moving this up to the top for a while, just to see if I can't make it to 40 comments. Go ahead. Humor me.
_____

Clearly I need to be bribing you people more often. This is FUN!

Update: 1/23/09, 10:52 CST, 32 down, 8 to go. (Remember -- my comments don't count, and two comments back-to-back by the same person count as one.)

Hmmm. You think maybe somebody will win this today?

Jay said...

*Waves*

And what's Potbelly's? Besides what I had before I trimmed down so dramatically.

Maeve said...

Heya Leslie!
Never heard of potbelly's. But I'd be happy to have a picture of The Divine Ms. Marilyn!

Kevin said...

Buy a round for the folks for me.

Northwoods Woman said...

haha, none of those places around here!

Omnibus Driver said...

Anon -- The last kitty I knew named Pumpkin (at least that comes easily to mind) was a flame point Himmy in NH... and that was back in the 80's. More hints, please.

Livey --
I'll bet I could get something from the pancake house you like. Just keep hitting the comments!

You're on my daily list also. I'm always looking for a fun way to start the day and your blog fills the bill.

Jay said...

Actually, Potbelly's sounds like a place that would specialize in dishes made with those funny little Vietnamese pigs, collected from people who no longer want theirs as a pet. But that's just me and my odd mind.

Walrilla said...

Here I am, again!

Great Reader KIM Jong IL has no pots of belly! It is all a lie put out by the Barack Whosenamed Obama slander machine!

Teresa said...

Well, I don't get by every day... but I do manage once in a while. LOL.

BTW - I've never been to Potbellies although last time my son was in Chicago staying with his sister, he "discovered" them and is now a loyal fan. I'll have to get there one day when I'm in the area.

This place rocks, but I can't get Google Reader to see it. In fact, I thought of you first thing this morning, thinking, i've got to remember to get on the bus!

I'm rendered helpless by having Reader do all my blog-finding for me. Wahhh!
