My plan worked.
THE TOTALLY AWESOME HIPSTER GIVEAWAY contest was not just for you.
It’s not all about you, you know?
It was also for me.
It was a way for me to derive from the glowing orb of your collective wittiness and creativity. I just stole a tiny piece of you. I’m sorry.
Oh, I also just learned that I changed someone’s life by introducing them to Steve Martin’s THE JERK.
I think I want that on my epitaph:

There were just too many wonderful comments left on the giveaway post not to share.
Here are some fine examples of ingenious at it’s best:
Daynya: lauren, in bizarro world, you and i would take our mannequin babies to movies with us, then go have bloody mary’s at brunch while they sat outside, guarding our bikes 🙂
VegKat: I love giveaways, and I love your blog. I want to make out with like every post you write. (Sometimes I actually do.) And is the theme “Mannequin”? Cause if you are giving away James Spader (ca. 1987) and I lose, I’ll kill myself.
Nadster: Lauren, I think that we should high five… not sexually…. not in the shower… just a solid high five. It makes the world go round. Have you ever seen someone NOT smile while high fiving?
Pono Madison: Lauren, I occasionally write your name on my notes surrounded my hearts. I also often misspell the word occasionally and then fix it by putting two fingers on my touchpad because I don’t use a mouse and my mac is incredibly awesome. One of those sentences was a lie. I’ve never had a PBR beer, so I’m not a real hipster. I suppose I need this giveaway to start my journey into hipsterdom. Which my computer is telling me isn’t a word. silly computer. It’s 3:53 am. Both those things were true. I think I’m going to stop rambling now.
Benny Paul: Lauren, In an alternate universe, we lived in a gothic apartment building in New York City in 1984. One day your eggs fried themselves on your counter and I offered you to do your taxes for you and you were like, eh, nah, but I’ve got a gate, and I was like, awesome, I’ve got keys, and then there was an interdimensional cross rip, and after the whole dimension-crossing thing, you were like “Whoa, I just went to New York of the future, and it wasn’t as cool,” and I was like, “Oh my god, me too, but I think I’m still there.” And then we were like, “Well, nice meeting you,” and we shook hands. And it was a super respectful handshake that was very memorable.
Mel: Lauren, Someone loaned me The Jerk on DVD a month ago and from there it got shoved under my bed and I proceeded to forget all about it. You inspired me to watch it and guess what? It change my life!! Hence, I’m a better person because of you. I hope I win, but if not, can we be best friends instead?
Sophie Neutron: Dear Lauren; in an alternate reality we would be soul mates…that continually never meet.
Except for one time. When we both randomly witness the same chicken laying it’s egg in a silly place and breaking it. Then we would walk off in opposite directions with me wandering where your friend got that amazing bedazzled thong body suit…and….I haven’t eaten anything resembling any person in months.
The Eternal Worrier: Wow, the mannequin has a huge gap between her eye brows… shit I’m a man,should I even have noticed that?! I went out with a girl in the 80s who had no real eye brows; she just put them on with eyeliner. Some times when we were out clubbing they would get smudged and look like big tire tracks across her forehead… Hang on I’ve said too much and gone off on a tangent.
Thanks for commenting everyone!

I’ll announce the winner on Monday and at that point I will have figured out what the hell the giveaway even is.
