    I was in a hurry to get to work this AM, but I did look through the contents and had a lot of good laughs at some of the things in this over inflated gift bag, but I can actually say I've won..... I don't think it's worth the taxes I'll have to pay, but in case JJ wants a cd set on how to learn Italian in 10 minutes a day.. I have a copy!! Plus a lot of other goodies including a 'mini' air brush gun to get the instant tan the bachelorettes seem to have! And what ever unknown reason that I can't figure, the "bigger" prize is a cd label maker, that looks a lot like the old timey label maker guns of the past! There's lots of dental hygiene products and T-shirts that would fit a 7 yr old (or a Bachelorette wanting to show off her 'assets'! :rolf
    Anyway... thought I'd share my fun news!
    Let me add my congrats, cg! I have a pair of jeans to go with your t-shirt. I can't imagine any adult who's ever eaten a plate of pasta fitting into those suckers. I remember when I won my gift bag a fellow FORTer who also had won and I shared a lot of laughs. She wrote me that she had received a prize that looked like a glass doorknob. Turns out, it was the decorative handle on a box containing a . . . . candle. I think that was "valued" at about $100 bucks. Some of my prizes were real tacky and appeared to be leftovers from the show--2 tester bottles of the same color of dirt brown nail polish, for example. Enjoy!

    Re: I'm going to ITALY!!!!!

    Ok, I finally got pictures of my Bachelor Rome prize bag taken and uploaded. It's taken me forever

    I was going to post a link to the photos at my website, but decided that might be against the rules, not sure, so decided not to do that. I'll just upload them here in several postings.

    The gift is a lot of pampering type products--bath and body, makeup and the like. The learn Italian kit was funny as I recalled Lorenzo didn't even speak much Italian! The clothes were silly--the shirt that said "Your Boyfriend Wants Me" was too funny! The self tanning kit with the airbrush machine (which looks like a hair dryer) was too hilarious too, I can just see myself doing this

    I sure wanted to try Gold Peak tea, but the coupons were expired

    And the 2 sharpie pens were funny--they didn't seem to fit the overall theme, but?! Maybe the bachelorettes sat around marking up photos and head shots of the girls they couldn't stand on off-date days!

    Here's a list of items:

    The box showed up and included a letter from ABC and their marketing dept. about the prize and its value at $1340.28 !!

    I know, that was funny

    Yes, I just played the Bachelor Rose Ceremony Game at ABC's The Bachelor website each week and made guesses as to who the bachelor (Dorky "Prince" Lorenzo would pick and got all weeks right but 1 where I was out of town and didn't get a chance to vote, so I guess one of the week's they drew my name. I'm normally not lucky at all with contests much, so I was really surprised when I won the bag! I've been watching The Bachelor since it first debuted with Alex and it's definitely my "guilty pleasure" so to speak Playing the game and sleuthing here with the fort is the best!
