For those of you who assumed that the reason I haven’t posted today was because I skipped town so I wouldn’t have to give out prizes…shame on you!
As it turns out, I was reading and commenting around 8 o’clock this morning when I heard a whole bunch of sirens. About 10 minutes later, mid comment, my computer died. In fact everything died, including the driver of the truck that hit the power pole about a half a mile from here. It’s now 5 o’clock in the afternoon and they have finally reopened the highway and got the power back on.
Funny how things are different depending on where you live, I for example live out in the bush and am not on town water. My house water comes from rainwater tanks, and my yard water comes from an underground bore, both are regulated by pressure pumps which means that when the power goes out, so does the water. So in addition to it being 112F with no fans, TV or air conditioner, I’ve had no shower, no toilet flush and no morning coffee. So, how’s your day been?
Anyway, enough of my complaining, on to the winners.
Horse condom winners:
Congratulations Swampy and Mary you are now the proud owners of some beautifully tasteful horse condoms. Legally Melissa qualifies too, but since there’s a question over her entry, she has been awarded the used one.
Karmyn and Susan take out the coveted Australian road signs. What?? Yes I know that Susan said they were Kryptonite and Karmyn blamed her kids for making her write funny, but the truth is, these prizes have been awarded for their ‘Sleeping Kid’ post-off the other day. Amanda would have won one too, but it would really be stretching it to award a prize to someone who didn’t even enter.
Vicki, Mert and Robin all win a stubby holder. Vicki was just so darned pitiful with her pleas, Mert got left out of the wrap-up and I’m not prepared to listen to Robin bitch at me for the next three weeks for not winning anything.
Not even Close:
Jenny and Stephanie win a special secret prize, Stephanie for guessing the most wrong answers and Jenny for actually having been sent the same stuff from Marnie and still getting it wrong.
So there you go, the prizes actually do exist so if you want them, email me with your details. I’m quite happy to send them to you, but in truth, they are pretty tacky and if I won I’d say "thanks, that’s nice of you, but don’t worry about it" (which is what Swampy has already said but she can change her mind if she wants to), but it’s up to you. Just remember that I’ll be sending them seamail so it will be at least 3 months before you see them.
Hint: It’s safer for you if you can get a way with using your work address (who knows how crazy I really am)
In other news, it seems like I’ve got another dog. I almost had two but the other one (a beagle) wouldn’t come into the yard and just took off. He looks like he’s been on the road for a while and is the skinniest dog I’ve ever seen, hopefully I’ll be able to beef him up a little. He doesn’t have a collar so I’ll be taking him to the vet’s to check for a microchip. More on him later.
