After returning from Seattle with a nearly bursting suitcase, a camera card full of 478 photos, and a mild case of the crabcake flu, I have been a bit busy. There is so much to show and tell and so little time for the showing and telling, but I will get to it as soon as humanly possible.
In the meantime, I wanted to draw a winner in the Super Special BeanPaste Birthday Prize Pack (aka: big box o' soap) give away. Since the answers were far too funny and/or touching to choose a favorite, I used a random number generator and:
Voila! (Well, not really. I had to manually count because Blogger is constantly failing me and doesn't number comments, so thank heavens it was 16 and not 53 or whatever, Blogger.) So, congratulations commenter #16, Rima! (Rima writes a blog called Rimarama, and you should really, really be reading it if you're not already. She is far funnier than I and almost never tries to foist boxes of soap on her readers.)
Incidentally, Rima would like to smell of "pie guts and Oil of Olay" when she is an old woman, and I think we can all agree that is a pretty solid life goal.
