Winners and Plates (which is synonymous with losers. But in the good way.)

It is ALMOST Tuesday, so I am over at Five Full Plates

BEHOLD! I have conferred with the random number generator over at Random. org, and it said 22 and 44. Which, I said to RNG, doesn’t seem all that random. Because one is the other, doubled. Stinks of a PATTERN, of a PLAN, of intelligent and quite possibly EVIL design. But RNG insists that those were the two most random numbers that could possibly be picked at that moment, and even though it SEEMS to be a pattern it is not.

Or perhaps it IS a pattern, but not the obvious one. Perhaps it is a pattern that is too big to see, and perhaps it began when the wind blown back from the bullet that killed Wild Bill Hickock changed the course of a pollen-drunk moth, and if we could follow that moth’s next move and the fall out from it, then we would understand Chaos Theory.

ALAS! I currently understand Chaos Theory about as well as anyone ELSE who only paid attention to the Geek-Chic Hawtness of Jeff Goldblum when he explained it with all those breathy pauses to Laura Dern in Jurassic Park.

But if you did not win, well. We know who to blame. Chaos theory. Or moths. Or dead gunslingers who were probably actually hung if I took the time to google it. Not sure. All I am sure of is that it was NOT the fault of Mr. Goldblum. Who is still lookin’ pretty dern good on whatever Law and Order that is. Just sayin’. Also just saying that I will post another 3Q with a give-away THIS VERY WEEK, and another the week after that. SO! FALTER NOT AND BE NOT DISMAYED! You will have two more chances in January for the moths of random to exhale in your direction.

22 and 44 were these BILLIE and LYNNE:

That is amazing luck to have come across an agent that easily.

Congrats to the winners. I never got to comment on that one . . but when I DID read it, I just happened to be eating a dark chocolate bar with bits of candied orange rind in it! Good thing I live so far away from you . .

Dang it! I saw the book in B&N on Sunday (the cover really is THAT luscious). I told my husband that if I bought it, I'd win it and if I didn't, I wouldn't. Should have bought it and given the extra as a gift. Curse you, RNG!!!

Now I have to go back to B&N. Oh darn. However will I stand it?

So funny... when you first mentioned Chaos Theory in this blog my first thought was "I really need to watch Jurassic Park again- it's been so long." And there you go talkinga bout Jeff Goldblum and raptors.

I love when you get all rambly.

Are you sure you mean hung, not hanged? Or perhaps - well, I never met the man.

Prodding the laptop-gremlins to apologise for multiple entry of my comment (1/17). Suitably chastised, they promise to never again play in your comment box.
God bless, Christine
