The Glass Bowl

Today was a fun day.

Today was the drawing for my 2-year anniversary celebration.

First of all, I went through my comments and followers to see who earned entries in the drawing.

Then I wrote the appropriate number of names on pieces of paper.

And I put them all in a glass bowl.

[I couldn't find the glass bowl I was thinking of, but this one worked perfectly.]

Then came the fun part.  The drawing.  I wish you could have been here.

     But you can imagine it.  And in your imaginations -- because you are gifted readers -- it will probably be even better than the real thing.

     Drum rolls.  Suspenseful music.  A crowd of eager spectators holding their breath.

And that one piece of paper that my hand closes on.

I unfold the paper and read...

Congratulations, Hanne-col!!!  I hope you enjoy this beautiful little box!!!  Please give me your email address in the comments below (I won't publish it), and I will email you to get your mailing address.  Or you could give me your mailing address in the comments below, since I'm not publishing it.  Yep, that would work, too.  :)
[P.S. Hanne-col, I'm not sure where you live or how often you check my blog.  For all I know, you found a time machine and are currently fighting in the French resistance. ;)  So if you live outside the U.S.A. or you take longer than a month to contact me with your address, I will figure some other prize for you instead of the box, okay?]

Thank again, to all of you.  I wish I could send beautiful gifts to everyone because the whole purpose of this was to thank each and every one of you.  Thank you so much for joining my party this week and celebrating 2 years of blogging with me.  Hurray!

I'll see you tomorrow with the next installment of The Mental Ward.
