You like me. You really LIKE me.

We have several orders of business today.

First, please see Sunday's post and vote for which photo I should submit to a photo contest. I can only pick one and I'm having a little difficulty choosing. Feel free to vote AND leave a warm and fuzzy comment. *hint hint*

Second, the moment you've all been waiting for: the announcement of who will get my blogoversary gift card.

Well, SURPRISE! I decided to give away THREE cards, still to the recipients' choice of Target, Starbucks or Amazon. There were 53 commenters (thanks, guys!!!!!), and I consulted the guru of numbers at

Here is what Mr. Random had to say:

No. 17 is *drum roll please*

Roger from A Screed in Time!

No. 39 is *trumpet fanfare please*

One of my fave rave bloggers, Huckdoll of Eternally Huckdoll and a whole slew of previous incarnations.

And last but certainly not least, no. 9 is *cue choir of heavenly angels*

Simply Jenn from Simply Not Simple, one of my very first blog friends!

Roger, Huck and Jenn, you will be receiving an email and a request for your choice and your info!

Thanks to ALL of you who have stood by me for 600 posts and two years -- and for helping me celebrate!

And finally, I am posting today at Mid-Century Modern Moms about the demise of the English language. Please please come visit me there.

It's, like, scary!

Congrats to the winners - but - DRAT, I lose again. Meanwhile, this is how I commented there:

Wordsmiths, more than any other, feel the pinch of 'like' on the derrière of the English language. And the knee to the gonads of 'Dude'. But then, remember the days of 'far out'? Me, too. Cool.

I love numbers, and for that reason Random.Org and I have had a very close relationship. I think this drawing was rigged. How could I be so thwarted?
