The day after halloween, a friend sent me the link to enter an online costume contest for Mapco, so I did. They posted a voting poll that was up for a week or so. I posted it on facebook and twitter and asked all my friends to vote. Yesterday, I got a message saying that I won! They asked some questions about the costume and asked if they could feature my name, photo, and story on their blog. That Sock Monkey is becoming famous. One contest at a time.
