And the winner of the giveaway is…

Frankly, I’m shocked at how many people loved and wanted this thing:

I would say, “there’s no accounting for taste,” but coming from someone who watches The Super Friends every fucking week, I think it would be a little hypocritical.

After getting down one of my mom’s million and a half baskets (she owns more baskets than any other human I’ve met), and putting each entrant’s name on a post-it note and folding it in half just so, Tom pulled out the winner’s name. Congratulations to Amy of Lucy’s Football. You will be receiving this prestigious award in the mail this or next week.

To all of you who didn’t win, I know that with time your hearts will mend and your tears will dry. Remember that life isn’t about material possession, but about what the shell poker game trinket represents – ample supply of beverages and cheating in retaliation of not being offered one. Let’s never lose sight of that.

  1. I’m so excited I can barely stand it. I will take a million photos. That is taking PRIDE OF PLACE in my home. It will be my best knick-knack ever. EVER.

    Once I won a book, and once I won a set of bookends but then my teacher was all “I made a mistake I want those back” and then I never won anything again so this is VERY EXCITING. Whoo-hoo! Thank you thank you!

  2. Note to self: don’t take a drink just before reading Carrie’s posts.

    “I would say, “there’s no accounting for taste,” but coming from someone who watches The Super Friends every fucking week, I think it would be a little hypocritical.”

    Almost made me spit all over my keyboard as I laughed. I want to put that in a signature somewhere!

  3. Noooooooooooooooooooooo!

    That’s it. I have lost all my faith in cheating, poker playing, cigar smoking shell figures. They are dead to me. Dead.
