No, not the Sagan novel. Or the Hollywood blunder adapted from said novel. Or the show 3-2-1 Contact...

So what does the damned title have to do with anything, you ask? After a recent post by my bestest blogging buddy, Abby Annis, I realized that I should probably have my contact info right there on my blog.

Again, thanks to Abby, I was able to rectify the situation in a flash! See the pretty purple script in the sidebar there? Instead of clicking through my profile to find my email, all anyone has to do to email me is click the link.

Want to win a button of your own, hand crafted by Abby herself, who will slave over every pixel? Just hop on over to this post, where you'll see how to enter! Here are some deets!

The prize: A custom made button for your blog!

I can tailor it to match your blog, use an image or font of your choice, or whatever you want. I am limited by my Photoshop, since I don't have a full program (PS Elements 7--I want CS5 so bad), and everything I know is self-taught from years of fiddling with the program, but if you're the winner, I'll do my best to give you exactly what you want.

To enter, you must be a follower!

I want one in red! ;)

That's it, y'all! I'm out until Ash Wednesday, but I'll be back with plenty of Mardi Gras pics for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy the weekend!

Oh man, you live in the perfect place for this time of year!

Very cute button. Great idea!

Also, I have vivid memories of 3-2-1 contact. That show doesn't make much sense in my memory (what was it about again? Educational, right?), but for some reason, I think of it fondly.

I'm pretty sure 3-2-1 Contact was the one that aired The Bloodhound Gang, but I remember most of it being more sciency, which I loved as a little dork. Just like Mr. Wizard! ;)

Was there a math skit that was like Dragnet? Mathnet! I'll have to look that up. I didn't even like math, but I remember loving Mathnet. (just looked it up, that was Square One, but apparently there was a Mathnet comic that "briefly appeared" on 3-2-1 Contact, according to the all-mighty Wikipedia. Totally forgot about that show, too.)

And yes, I DO live in the perfect place for this time of year! The azaleas are blooming, the weather is nice, and the throws are plentiful! Can't wait for parades tonight. Just hope it stays dry!
