The Envelope Please...

Wow.  This was tough.  I was going to be completely fair about this.  I didn't want anyone to have an unfair advantage.  Is there a fair advantage?  I think that may be so.  But I still wasn't sure how to calculate that.  I was going to get Mike to pull the winner yesterday, but some things came up.  We didn't even eat dinner till 10:30 p.m. and it was leftovers.  It wasn't our fault.  But the details are boring, and I should focus on the giveaway.  So, I jotted down each person who was entering and their respective blogs on small pieces of paper.  I double folded each piece of paper and placed them in a bowl.  Then with out looking in the bowl I reached out and withdrew a single piece of paper.  I didn't want to look because the small papers weren't cut squarely, and I was afraid I might recognize the shape of one.  That might skew the results.  Insanity, I'm sure.  You're probably laughing at me right now.  You're probably saying that I'm getting too scientific.  No, you're probably saying that I need to just announce the winner and quit with all this mumbo jumbo.  I say you are right.  So without further ado, let me introduce you to my 100th Post Giveaway Winner:

Ladies and Gentlemen, say hello to...
JOANNA
http://boonedockswilcox.blogspot.com/

Thank you to each and everyone of you who read my blog and leave comments.  I never thought I'd have this many followers or have as many as 43 countries visit me.  Of course, I'm sure some of those were google searches looking for something else.  But I got the exposure anyway!  Maybe it won't be so far off before I can do another one!  See y'all around in blogland!

I totally demand an accounting of this procedure -- irregularly shaped ballots, misspellings, name changes . . . there's something fishy (or should I say, "chickeny" going on here), and it just ain't right. Ain't right at all.

Jim, The Gaudy Garden said...

WHOOOOOO?????????

Chicken Boys said...

I swear I was fair! I'd be nothing than other! I will be sending her a jar of Mike's homemade salsa. A book called "My Fine Feathered Friend". And a few little items I've set aside. I haven't heard from her yet. I do have a first runner up. If she don't respond, the first runner up (who I think would be surprised) will get the gift set.

LemonyRenee' said...

Now some sick side of me is rooting for the runner up. Joanna really needs to show up soon!

Chicken Boys said...

I'm considering sending something for the runner up anyway!
