Today is a very special day. It’s Jesi’s birthday. Jesi is not only a pillar of the pen community but one of my best friends. In this time of sheltering-at-home and COVID-19 and whatnot, we will not get to celebrate her birthday in our usual way: drinking too much and eating cake (often provided by unsuspecting friends) at a pen show.
So, I have decided to enlist the help of you, lovely readers, to celebrate Jesi. You too, will get a gift. Well, one of you will in the form of ONE $50 gift certificate from our good friends at JetPens. So, here is what you have to do. TO ENTER: Leave a comment below and wish Jesi a happy birthday, tell a story about Jesi, tell my why you think she’s awesome or otherwise wax poetic about her. Play along and type in something. It makes reading through entries more interesting for me, okay? One entry per person. If you have never entered a giveaway or commented on the site before, your comment must be manually approved by our highly-trained staff of monkeys before it will appear on the site. Our monkeys are underpaid and under-caffeinated so don’t stress if your comment does not appear right away. Give the monkeys some time. FINE PRINT: All entries must be submitted by 10pm CST on Monday, April 27, 2020. All entries must be submitted at wellappointeddesk.com, not Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, okay? Winner will be announced on Tuesday. Winner will be selected by random number generator from entries that played by the rules (see above). Please include your actual email address in the comment form so that I can contact you if you win. I will not save email addresses or sell them to anyone — pinky swear. If winner does not respond within 5 days, I will draw a new giveaway winner. Winners are subject to all restrictions and shipping limitations in Jet Pens shipping information section.
