I had the names written on strips of paper, but then decided to randomly put numbers on the backs of those strips. I did the number generator, but couldn't figure out how to show you the result in a pretty format. Skwishee won when I matched the number on the computer to the number on the paper. Skwishee also won when I numbered the comments and matched them to the number generator generated number.
Since I was concerned about all ten of you doubting my methods, I considered just choosing whichever nominee's category made me chuckle the most. It was tough, but I would have picked Skwishee for her work in Most Likely to Have Bizarre Items in the Oven. ("Melted Barbies smell like crap" won my heart.)
Luckily, additional humans entered the building, so I had valid assistance (thanks again, Fozzie). I was looking for a place in the house to stage the drawing that would not look like I was running a tag sale with my current decor, but that might've taken us well into next week, so if you see something you like, name a price. We let my son's friend pull the magical name (Oh you just never know what afterschool fun there is to be had here at our house.) Let's see how that turned out...
Soooooooooo...I think it's safe to say that SKWISHEE is the grand prize winner of a first edition copy of Epic Mom. Congratulations Skwishee! (You can email me your address.)
