.....and the winner is.....

Okay, all you all who have been on the edgiest of edges of your seats, the wait is finally over! I did a highly scientific tallying system (using pen and paper) to make sure every commenter that had a second entry got their fair number of entries. (This was necessary as some folks especially messed me up with the nonsequential comments. You'll recall, I have nary a wit nor marble, as any previously in my possession are chillaxing with my autographed dreamboat pictures off in the storage unit...) Then I went over to Random.org as Kiddo is already long since asleep (thanks to an afternoon of fresh air and "scootering" as she calls it, along with helping Hubby do some early-season yard work - anything to improve curb appeal, eh?) and typed in my numbers. And the winner is..............




Number 11, who by my careful, highly mathematical and scientific method, is


Carma!

Carma, I'll be dropping by your blog a lot in the next few days to come up with ideas for your song/video that will undoubtedly include the ever-dreamy Alec Baldwin and possibly the Garden State. I will beg for your patience in this video-making process, with a twofold excuse: (1) the house showing stuff means I have to abandon my computer for unknown stretches at a time (NB - is it wrong to lurk in the neighbor's bushes and spy on the folks checking out our house? Shoot, I thought so...) and (2) having a whole day of fresh air inside and out (yay for almost-Spring and open windows) has rendered me incapable of breathing, much less singing. I'm Rudolph the Red-Nosed Allergy Chick right now. So, I will get my blood levels of Claritin up to a tolerable percentage and then belt out your very own, customized, full of pizazz and possibly jazz hands song and create a video just for you very, very soon!

Thanks to all who entered. If you're terribly, horribly distraught and devastated that you weren't the lucky winner, take heart! My blogaversary and 300th post are both coming up in the next few weeks, maybe I'll do another video giveaway for one of those Very Special Occasions!

In the meantime, please think good thoughts on the house hunting thing for us; we have an offer in that they're supposed to respond to by tomorrow at 10 (Hubby thinks they may just not respond - isn't that rude? Or is that how it goes if you don't like an offer, you just ignore it 'til it expires?) and we had two showings this weekend, so maybe, hopefully one of those showings turns into an offer for us.....

Off to make some nachos and watch the Race that always Amazes - woo-hoo!

Double drat! Congrats to Carma, but darn it I wanted a Heather Original.

And seriously, your 300th post!?!

Holy schnikeys lady!!

Good luck with the offer. Yes, some people do ignore. It's quite rude. We always figured we didn't want the rude karma (you know, karma, not Carma) that came with a house that shelters such horrible people :-).

I'm fairly disappointed too! But congrats to Carma. And good luck with the houses.

I can't wait to see the video. Even if we didn't win we get to share the prize! Good luck with the house buying and selling. I think it is rude to not respond...I don't think we ever had anyone completely ignore an offer.

Darn it! But congrats to the winner!

Sounds like fun! Isn't the Amazing race fun? I'm so happy the mom & son came in first last night.

I love the Amazing Race and I am keeping my fingers crossed for you on the house stuff.

Don't forget if you need some staging advice for the house just give me a shout out - I'll be glad to help virtually!
