Here it is in a nutshell:
there are two winners of my totally awesome kick butt Miss Mix-a-lot CD contest.
I’ll try to explain. Mainly, it’s that I’m complex. I can’t make things easy. (Can you hear my husband’s voice faintly emerging from the Internet ether, yelling “hell no she can’t!” ?) Because first, I went to www.random.org to select a winner and I got a number, yes, but it seemed such an impersonal, dry, dull way to go.
And I’m an out-of-the-(Tinkerbell)-box thinker, so I decided to employ a secondary, cooler way to pick a winner:
The number “9” is blurred by all the fairy dust.
But more importantly, the #9 commenter is Eden, who wins a not-Prince CD mix.
AND, Cheri at Blog This Mom was the random.org winner (commenter #2), the aforementioned dull method of selecting a winner, which is a paradox, because Cheri is decidedly NOT dull. In fact, she’s the anti-dull (doesn’t quite have the ring I was going for)…
Anyway! I will be e-mailing you two with some follow-up questions to ensure I mix the kick assednessest CDs for yous ever.
