And The Winner Is...

Wow. Did we have a bunch of awesome entries or what! Excellent job guys! Reading your entries totally perked up my week!

In fact, there were so many great entries, we decided we have three winners! So, without further ado, the winners are...

First Place - Terry P with Hush Little Baby Don't Say a Word, Mama Understands You're An Introvert.

Second Place goes to Neriza with two hilarious entries: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide and Tuesdays with More Me

And last but not least, Third Place goes to Alkelda the Gleeful with The Five People You Avoid In Heaven.

As we said, the prizes were an SVP mug, a copy of either Mary or my newest book, or a ten page critique (probably from me because Mary is crazy busy right now.) We'll let the 1st place winner have her pick, then the second place winner, then the third, so Terry, email me with your prize choice, then I'll contact the rest of you.

And thanks again for playing!

P. S.

I’m drowning my sorrows with California chili cheese dogs smothered with onions and, well, the rest you don’t need to know . . .

Yippee! I won, I won! You really do like me! Too over the top? It worked for Sally Field when she won her Oscar...

Thanks, Mary and Robin. This was fun! I'll email you with my decision.

Congratulations! The winners were all good.
Wish you could've given an honorable mention to Tricia Grissom. Her post came in after my original comment--otherwise I would've commented earlier on the Spoonerian elegance of "The Shy Who Came in from the Bold."

It was a tough, tough decision. Our judges went back and forth. One thing that would have been fun to do is have the blog readers vote for their favorites. Blogger doesn't have a polling option, but I'm going to look into that for next time so we can have you guys vote for your favorites!

Congrats to Terry, Nerizaaaaa, and Alkelda. Thanks for the great entries. Mah-velous stuff.

And, to ALL of you that entered or have been reading along and tittering, thanks for your contributions and being a part of our Violet & Vinnie community!

Happy weekend, friends!

Hey Art! Fancy meeting you here! Thanks for stopping by.

Alkelda the Gleeful said...

Arthur: Cookies! No one mentioned cookies. I like cookies.
