‘ThxThxThx’ Giveaway Winner Announced

Dear Thankful Readers,

Last week we introduced you to Leah Dieterich’s new book thxthxthx and asked you to post a thank you thanking anything. Some of you thanked poetically, others thanked ironically, one of you weirdos thanked mucinex, and they were all wonderful. However, the contest is now closed because we have winner!

Natalie will be getting a signed copy of thxthxthx because Leah thought it was cute. But don’t Natalie’s triumph stop you from getting your own copy of the book; you can pick it up right here.

Natalie, you can contact Laneia [at] autostraddle [dot] com with your name (if Natalie’s just your online personna) and mailing address to claim your fabulous prize.

An honorable mention to hopehallohan for calling the winner as well as Frankie, LS, and alyssa for being so darn clever.

    • thanks! I think it’s kind of funnier that I didn’t win, as the joke now becomes about my hubris

  1. Let it be known that while I may have been clever enough to come up with that pun, I’m still not clever enough to think of a username other than my own name.

  2. Hah. I guess I missed this. I’d like to see more entries. Especially that Mucinex post!

  3. Of course, now that the contest is closed, I thought of what I should have entered:

    Dear Leah,

    Thanks for remembering me so often. It makes me feel special.

    With gratitude,


  4. I’m seriously surprised that I was the one to win the contest! Alyssas’ was my personal favorite, I was certain she’d win.

  5. She’s doing a book signing in LA on July 11. I’m thinking of moving up the date I drive out in order to go and get a signed copy (and tell her in person about how I want to marry her and have her babies.)
