Prize Winners

I donated a prize for NaBloPoMo. The winners were all revealed this evening, none of which were Janie and she is very bitter about it. The blogger who won my prize is Esther from an illumination from glances. Congratulations!

There are a couple winners on the list that I am familiar with – one is Laura and the other is Pam. Yay!

Janie attended library school and graduated a year ago. She was offered interviews in California on several occasions, but since that time we saw that thing creeping across the road while on vacation, our life plans have changed and we no longer plan to move there. She’s going to be applying for librarian and other positions until someone realizes how bad-ass she is and insists on paying her so much money that I can stay home and watch my stories. We’ve decided to make the agonizing application process more fun so today we had an application party which consisted of me making potato skins and watching her drink gin and tonics. After getting nice and boozed up, Janie spent three hours working on job applications and cover letters while I made a roast duck.

The duck turned out well, but took a little longer than expected because I’m retarded and I left the package of giblets inside the bird for the first hour. Oops! When I finished my work, I came in and found her passed out and noticed several emails from local companies thanking her for her application. This was not what I expected, but I can’t complain. She offered herself up as the naughty librarian with promises to “shush you all night long.”

    I’ll shush you all night long, little lady! But it’s true: I am quite upset about not winning a prize. Bastards.

    Hi L: I found out I won when I fired up your blog in my reader this morning. Thanks for the good news. I turned off the computer and unplugged it last night due to the storm. Just in case of power bloop. I’ve never made duck but I have left the giblet bag inside a chicken before. Oops, indeed.

    My condolences on your lack of winning.

    Don’t move to California! No! And you know, for the insect phobes, Seattle is indeed a wonderful choice. Least buggy place I’ve ever lived by far. Warmer and drier climes do support massive creepy crawly populations. Texas and Oklahoma had spiders like you just would not believe. And ants, fire ants! And huge cockroaches.

    ‘Course today, a lack of bugginess might just be because they’ve all drowned. But hey, I’ll definitely take it over 1000’s of acres of fires . . .
