Saucy decided to enter Loopy in the GARAGE Model Search online. She found out about it when they were in the store last week. There was no in-store search in this city so small, so entering online was the only option.
Saucy's been so busy. Today Loopy wore her Garage clothing to school and after the bell rang Saucy dragged her over to the park and rattled off some shots before running other errands.
By the time she sat down to look at these shots after supper, Saucy was thinking Loops might have a good chance! The balloons had since been dropped over to a friend for a treat along with some other goodies. This was one of those days when productivity reigned supreme and even though Saucy had lots to do, she just kept getting more things done!
They required one full length shot, so here it was.
Cute, right? Super cute! Loopy-Doopy cute! Loopy likes to wear clothes from Garage because if Saucy goes in the store before Loopy does and explains to the girls who work there that she has Asperger's, they understand and they help her put together entire outfits, without lots of decisions and hassle. Plus, if you ask really sweetly, they will turn down the music if you find it overwhelming and confusing, which happens if you have Asperger's.
Saucy just adores their return policy. Some days Loopy is so overwhelmed she is unable to try things on in the store... even though she thinks they have the cutest change rooms ever (and they do!). So Saucy can buy her jeans in two sizes, she tries them at home and the ones that don't fit can be returned. The clerk even suggested to let her wear them for a half hour each before making her decision, as long as they weren't worn outside and had the tags attached we can take them back. Now that's some excellent customer service, don't you think?
Back to the story...
After supper, just as Saucy was getting ready to upload the pictures to the site, Loopy decided she needed a few school supplies so it was time to hit - of course - to the dollar store! After clicking the "upload" button.
Saucy came home to find the Safari message "could not be completed because you aren't connected to the Internet"... no problem!
Problem! The contest must have closed at 10:00 PM EST! When Saucy reconnected to the Internet, she wasn't able to upload. The contest page changed: now it says to come back and vote for the winner starting October 6th from the finalists! Gah.
The Internets broke over here and let Saucy down.
It's so, so sad, isn't it? After she went to all that trouble. And on such a busy day, too.
Oh, well. These are still some lovely pictures... and Loopy has a cute outfit. Maybe next year!
Reader, don't be a victim of waiting until the last minute to enter online. Check out the post below for your chance to win one of my fabulous Halloween charm bracelets. The contest closes as midnight on Friday, October 2. Midnight makes so much more sense for a contest to close, don't you agree?
