    YOU DIDN’T WANT IT ENOUGH, LADIES, YOU JUST DIDN’T WANT IT ENOUGH! except for Liz, Liz wanted it enough. BRAVO LIZ.

    We’re selling the extra bed in Brooke’s room on the private market for $1,000, first come first serve. The trick is tricking Brooke into thinking that she just met you on the boat and you hit it off and she has an extra bed. We’ll help of course.

    • I DID want it BAD enough. ALL CAPS.
      Although, the real question is why isn’t Sweet cruises giving PaaV free cruises to “give away” to our “listeners”? We love lezzie and awesome stuff! We pimp lezzie and awesome stuff! Autostraddle is just so much cooler than us, I suppose that’s why…
      …le sigh

    • haha. Nice plug. And i think it might be true. The only other thing I won in my life was a platypus software t-shirt in the 3rd grade. So go study with Haviland and get cool stuff!

      Thank you Autostraddle I am super excited.

      YAY

  2. As the other Julia in the draw, I went from super excited when the first name was read, to all disappointed when the last name got read. So close, but not close enough.
    Congratulations other Julia, have an awesome time!
