Yes, it's time to announce the winner of the first annual Fortune Cookies Christmas Challenge!
As you may remember, I asked you to donate your time, money, or energy to a charitable origination this holiday season, and let me know so I could enter you in a drawing. You guys came through like the champs I always knew you were!
The blogging community is the bestest, most thoughtful, pro-active community evah! For reals. And I'm not just paying lip service either. I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
I appreciate each and every one of you for your willingness to help others, and I know your good karma will come back to you many times over.
OK, OK, enough of the mushy-gushy sentimental stuff...On to the drawing.
I originally planned to vlog this, since vlogging the drawing of the winner of these type things seems to be all the rave in the blogosphere these days, but our video camera only works in the brightest of sunlight, and since it's been rainy and foggy and overcast, we're S.O.L. on that. So you'll just have to accept some photos, sorry guys, a new video camera is on Santa's list for NEXT year...
...For now, all Santa can muster is a double shot of schnapps in my cocoa while I blog this... It's been a doosey of a day! But that's a story for another time.
I had the Wifester photo-journal the process of the drawing while I utilized her scary alien-snowman cookie jar to draw the names from. I'm not kidding, it's scary, and I truly think an alien mated with Frosty to create this atrocity:
Then, against my better judgement, I plunged my pudgy hand into the alien-snowman hybrid
To my complete and utter surprise, I was not abducted and probed, nor was I wisked away into an alternate bizarro-world. Instead, I found this:
Chatty, Come On Down! You're the next contestant... Oh, wait, wrong show...if you'll email me your mailing address, I'll get your prize out to you ASAP!
And thanks again for playing!
