Celebrate Good Times, C’mon

I vowed that for every 100 new followers I get on Twitter, I’d offer up a super-awesome, jam-packed goodie bag to one lucky lurker. If I’m anything, I’m true to my word so it looks like it’s time to celebrate 500 followers with my second free-stuff frenzy! One rad-pants winner will get an autographed copy of my latest book Wish You Were Here, a couple limited-edition Wish You Were Here Sharpies and a special lil’ surprise that”ll make you swoon. Swears! Just ask @hoppusfanmuch, who won my first giveaway!

Here’s your mission, should you choose to accept it…

Please answer the following question: “What song title best represents your life?”

For example, mine would be “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want” by The Smiths (off their compilation album Louder Than Bombs)

Twitter-Away Giveaway Instructions:
