A Winner is You

Congratulations to Liz Olney Amos and Marguerite Borck, who won signed Advanced Reader Copies of gods in Alabama!

Sam pulled their numbers out of a Yankees ball cap provided by my friend Matt, who cares about football or hockey or whatever it is those guys play.
*pauses to watch Matt turn purple and stroke out*


The following people also were jerked from the hat, and they win a DORKY LITTLE PRIZE! YAY!

ViVi (La France?)
Aimee Parrott
Peter Backman
Dana Willis
Chris Sofge

By the way, JUST FOR THE RECORD, I did NOT beat Sam in the face and give him that emerging shiner. He came home with it from an afternoon of wild hooliganism and shenanigans. He was out running with the pack of neighborhood boys. And I said, WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR EYE.
And he looked at me blankly and said, I DUNNO.
So I dragged him to a mirror and said LOOK LOOK.
And he shrugged and said, Oh I think that must be from where Atiba hit me in the face with a bat.

Sam watched me freak out until it got boring and then he shrugged and said, WELL IT WAS PROBABLY AN ACCIDENT....SHEESH.

I will never understand men. Even TINY ones.

I demand a re-count...re-draw! I never win these books! OK, well, once or twice, but it's a new year and what's a gal gotta do to get some free 2005 stuff? Sheesh...

POUT. Sam, I thought we were friends. I'm naming a child after you, even.

Okay, that all rocks. With real-live igneous rocks. Yeay for being a winner! It was bound to happen some day, despite what my guidance counselors told me. :)
