(Lucky) seven Dear Wendy pocket-sized moleskin notebooks, pictured above, stamped with your choice of the DW logo “Aim Higher” or “MOA!” are up for grabs this week. The stamps come courtesy of an etsy seller who, in addition to making personalized stamps, also makes personalized pillows, like these awesome Scrabble pillows, which are a perfect gift for the word nerds in your life.
If you’re interested in winning a notebook like the ones pictured above, all you have to do is donate any amount to support the site here (if you have already donated in the past six months or are a recurring monthly donor, you’re eligible and don’t need to make an additional donation… unless you really want to), and then leave a comment below saying whatever you want — tell a joke, suggest what you’d want your scrabble pillow to spell, say what you like about DW, wax poetic about any old thing. Please only comment ONE TIME. You can remain anonymous if you prefer, but make sure you leave an email address in the login field where I can contact you if you win. Winners will be chosen at random tomorrow through the Random Number Generator website at 7 AM EST tomorrow. I will endeavor to email the winners, but please check this spot right here for winners’ names tomorrow to see if you’ve won.
UPDATE: The number generator chose the following numbers and winner (congrats, guys! Please send me your mailing addresses):

Why do teenagers always travel in odd numbers?
Because they literally can’t even.

Oooo! Dear Wendy Swag! I’m loving it!

Physics joke #213
Q: Why are quantum physicists so poor at sex?
A: Because when they find the position, they can’t find the momentum, and when they have the momentum, they can’t find the position.

The physicist saw the young man about to jump off the Empire State Building. “Wait! Don’t do that! You have so much potential!”

How can you tell the difference between a chemist and a plumber? Ask them to pronounce unionized.
Astronomer September 23, 2014, 2:12 pm
There are three kinds of mathematicians: those who can count, and those who can’t.

I like DW and I like to keep notes on the people I meet. This is pathetic. Just pick me Random Number Generator!!
Lianne September 23, 2014, 2:16 pm
I don’t have any jokes, but I love Jennylou’s the best so far because it is also related to grammar!

Grammar: the difference between knowing your shit and knowing you’re shit.
“Let’s eat, Grandma!” vs “Let’s eat Grandma!” Commas save lives!

Q: How many full professors does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: Just one – he or she holds the bulb up to the socket and waits for the world to revolve around them.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh! I love tiny notebooks!

I’m eating a salad at my desk, and pretty sure that all my coworkers in the vicinity want to strangle me…

I have nothing exciting to share other than I really thought it was Wednesday today! And I’m really ready for a glass of wine when I get home.

Love those notebooks!

I just sat in the sun for 1.5 hours. It was glorious. And now I got like 3 new freckles.
As for jokes…. I got nothing. Oh wait…. no, nothing. In other news: I went to my first official Crossfit class yesterday. Holy shit balls. I mean, whoa. It was intense.

I’m so jaded after yesterday’s shot glass debacle. I won’t believe the RNG will pick me. I won’t teeter on the brink of hope like that. Never again.

Just think, if you had commented faster you would have had my spot and won. Tsk tsk Diablo! 😉

It’s because of that thread yesterday where I falsely claimed to be good with a certain amount of teasing, but the ugly truth is now I’m going to act all butthurt and self-righteous victim-y. So you go on now, enjoy your notebook, AP, and just write down all your little thoughts about poop and whatever. I’ll be too busy doing big important things that could never be described in a tiny little notebook, so don’t [sob] worry [sob] about meeeee [symphony of halting, crushing little sobs].

I’m terrible with jokes, so I’m just going to use one from a book of Halloween jokes I had as a kid:
Why do witches fly on brooms? Because vacuum cleaners are too heavy.
Amanda September 23, 2014, 3:43 pm
I love those notebooks!

This is a your momma joke WITH a Harry Potter theme!
Your momma’s so fat her patronus is a cake!

Can I brag in my comment? I have a cold and feel crappy, but my boyfriend is taking such good care of me. I feel like I’m falling in love all over again. It’s kind of nice.
Jenny September 23, 2014, 6:00 pm
I’ve got nothing clever but I want to win! 🙂

I was so bummed to miss the shot glass contest – these notebooks are adorable!
