Ladies and Gentlemen, We Have A Winner!

I know you never thought this was going to happen, did you?


I told you all that I had a book to give away and so you all threw caution to the wind and left me a comment...and lo and behold, I let you down. I got sidetracked. I procrastinated. It's my fault. I will admit this.


But my intentions were good, honest.


My intent was to go buy another book just so that I would have THREE to give away, but then I remembered that I was poor and so I gave up on that dream.

I intended on selecting the winners as soon as I recieved Trish's book in the mail - since she was kind enough to give her book as a sacrifice for your reading enjoyment. But then she put in a whole pan of her chocolate chip brownie thingeys cuz she looooooves me. And well, that got me sidetracked for quite some time.


And then my intent was to VIDEO myself, with the aide of Remi and the AG, drawing names out of a hat and posting said video here. But then I remembered that at this moment in my life I look like Fred Murtz when he put on all that weight between seasons 5 and 6...and so that dream bit the bullet.


And then I intended to actually post the winners earlier last week, but I took some Percoset and instead called the Middle TN Electric Company and asked them when their next blood drive was, so again...no go.


But all is well now. I am back in RARE form, as my mom would say, and I have two winners. And let me just go on record as saying that I chose these winners with the help of the Accounting firm of Earnst and Young. Okay, I'm lying. Actually I chose them by using Random.org, which was quite nice and convenient and keeps y'all from egging my house if you don't get chosen.


RANDOM.ORG - Integer Generator: "Random Integer Generator"
Here are your random numbers:
12
24
Timestamp: 2008-08-18 03:20:59 UTC"


However, it was a little hard to do considering some of you left messages that you had already read the book, therefore you didn't want to be considered. So then I had to count past your name and go to the next person in line.


And then I would get to the next person in line and be like, "uh...no. I don't agree with how she wears her hair," so then I would have to count down past that person...and pretty soon it was just exhausting.


Okay, I'll stop. That's all lies. All lies.


Actually, the Attorney General helped me count down the list to make sure I was right. And let me tell you something, if the Attoreny General does a back-check you can rest assured. Rest. Assured. You hear me? Ain't nothin' gettin' past him. Nada. He is MR. RULE FOLLOWER to the nth degree. So if you have a problem with the outcome...take it up with him.


Egg his house.


Oh, uh...wait.


So Wags and Tabi shoot me an email and let me know your address, cuz ladies this book is coming your way. Just remember the rules:

  1. Read the book.
  2. Apply the lesson.
  3. Sign the book.
  4. Share the love.


Till tomorrow, my lovelies.

Heather said...

At this point, I don't even remember what book you were giving away.

We know your life has been crazy lately. All is forgiven. Don't we all procrastinate from time to time?

Next time, pick me :)

Rhonda said...

Okay. Okay. So then if I didn't win the book, maybe your should send me some chocolate chip brownie thingeys?

lol

Kidding.

Sort of.

Amy said...

Well, Im gettin' the eggs!! Kidding. Congrats!

Melissa said...

Fred Murtz, huh. I had no idea Fred was such a babe!
You are cracking me up.
Thank you for not considering me in the book contest. I am a bad book borrower. The book would not escape my house without some scribble and dog ears and possibly spaghetti sauce. I don't like borrowing things because they never are returned in the same condition in which they came.

*Hands waving wildly in front of my face as I fan myself in an attempt to drive back the tears of excitement*

First of all I'd like to thank the academy for this award, and then of course all of the little people... you know who you are. You love me... you really love me!

I must admit I scrolled to the bottom in an attempt to find out who the winner was, and as shocked and awestruck as I was... it took me a minute to remember I needed then to go back and read it all the way through. :)

I assure you I will not begin at the back of this book however.

email me your email!

WOO HOO! :)

Who in the world are you, and how have I missed you up to this point? I'm over here from Marlene's "Stitching by the Lake" and am in tears reading this.

Thanks for the lift.

Kelly said...
