Sparklers and confetti and virtual Beehive cake for everybody!
You know us; we'll celebrate most anything as long as there's a cute cake involved.
700 blog posts. Mercy me. Some of you Gentle Readers have been around for most (or even ALL) of those missives, and for that I say you deserve some sort of prize, for sure. So I say to celebrate our 700th post, it's high time we had another silly contest around here. It's been way too long since The Beehive had a silly contest, don't you think?
(Anybody still remember our semi-regular "Oh My Word" poetry contests from a few years ago? Those were a blast! Maybe we should do another one?)
Entering is simple. Really simple. Just leave a comment telling me the name of the last song you sang. Not the last song you heard, but the last song you actually sang. Yourself. Out loud. In church, in the shower, in the rain, in your car, wherever. That's it!
This is not just for Beehive old-timers, either. Come on and enter whether you've read 700 posts or whether this is the first time you've been here!
Deadline: Wednesday (10/28) at high noon. Then I'll blindfold Justin with a bandanna (he'll so dig that) and have him randomly pick a winner.
The prize? Aw, c'mon. You don't really expect me to tell you, do you? It's a surprise, silly.
In the immortal words of Pooh, "You never can tell with bees."
Okay. Ready? Go! I can't wait to see what you've all been singing.

PS. Incidentally, a while back a young minister wrote to say that he had just finished a personal project of reading Every Single Post in our archives. No joke. I was a tad nonplussed, to say the least. Maybe we should send a silly prize to him, too.
PPS. Cake photo (and recipe!) from Williams-Sonoma. And yes, that beehive cake pan really does make cakes that cute.
