Oh, wait, that's not how you start such a thing, is it now? You say something about how difficult it was to choose a winner, you thank everyone for participating, you encourage those who didn't win to try again next time.
But to tell you the truth, it really wasn't THAT difficult. When I saw the winner's response I knew that she was going to be the winner. The second and third prizes were almost equally easy to determine. And soooo without further adieu I present to you the winners of the book and chocolate contest. :)
The book goes to Nicole Ibarrondo, because she hasn't read a real book in two years! And she is desperate: I don't care if it's a cookbook, a self-help book, even a book on how to spray windex properly...just give me something not written by Dr.Seuss!That is true and real drama. And the book, might I add, is the perfect way to go back to adult literature. An easy and pleasant read. But I warn you... you may get stuck with it and forget all about, you know... Dr. Seuss.
Some of the chocolate goes to the Writing Goddess, because (2) my oldest son is flying 2500 miles away from me tomorrow and my apron strings are already fraying and I am going to be sobbing the moment he can't see me anymore. Yikes!!! This calls for a chocolate fix of the best kind.
And the other part of the chocolate will go to Evonne. Not only does she have a twitching arm, and surprise visits from her mother, but also the people who drive in front of me on the way home from work are all idiots. Besides, Evonne has two people vote for her. How can I say no to this winner?
Congratulations, winners! Thank you all for participating. I had fun. I hope you did too.
Thank you, for de-lurking, thank you for adding me to your blogrolls... I will reciprocate sometime today... after the stress of the day wears off and I feel like a human again.
If the winners would kindly leave an e-mail address for me in the comment section? Remember to write it with a dot instead of a . and an at instead of an @. Just playing it safe here. :)
