So… let’s start with the confession. You’ll notice I didn’t post winners last week. I knew I was supposed to, and I almost did, but then time got away from me and it was almost midnight and I decided … you know what? I don’t want to. That’s right. I had a mental tantrum. And today, I thought “I control this blog – this blog doesn’t control me!” Which… I guess isn’t fair for the people waiting on it, but you know what? They can check back. All of you lovely people do – and shouldn’t you be rewarded more?! I think so.
On that note … hm. I was going to say if a winner ever doesn’t contact me, feel free to nudge me to re-draw. But how would you know? I guess you could ask in the comments of the winner post if I’ve heard from everyone. That works for me. 😀
And the actual note – which is really an update – I’ll be out of town next weekend. I’m not certain as to internet access, or time and availability, so there probably won’t be a winners post on Saturday. Tell your friends. 😉
I’m actually considering announcing winners bi-monthly now. (That’s twice a month, right? Or is it bi-weekly? I used to be so certain but then all these discussions in college with people made me uncertain and bleh.) Well, playing with the idea of every other Saturday. Although if that happens, how will all of you get your weekly dose of Lime rambling?! How will you ever survive?
I know – STFU, Lime. I’m there. The randomly chosen winners:
(If you aren’t sure if you’re the winner or not, you can click on the name here, which takes you to the actual comment that was chosen. See? I try to take care of everything.)
A few weeks ago, we had author Jennifer Bernard here talking hot firemen, and also unexpected heroes. Double bonus post and all! The lucky winner is barbed1951!
Then, Vivian Arend popped up again! Her winner is Laurie.
Carolyn Crane was here with a hilarious post – which kinda dated me. :X As in *small voice* I didn’t know a lot. Maybe most. I did know the kool-aid one though, because… something someone studied debate whatever… and also almost every cartoon for adults has spoofed it, right? Well, definitely the Simpsons and Family Guy. But the point is – her winner is Jeffe Kennedy!
Lovely author PJ Schnyder guested and shared a recipe. I love étouffée. I also have a lot of guilt attached to it but that’s another story. Mary Preston! You get the prize of yay!
I think that’s everyone. If I missed a post/neglected to choose a winner, someone please let me know. Thanks!
Winners! Please note – email me with all your relevant information and what your prize is please. It’ll be in the original post. Which I linked to right here for your convenience. See how nice I am to you? Please return the favor! Xoxo
And for everyone else who didn’t win – just like me – did you see the lovely Melissa Schoeder and Cynthia Eden also have guest posts here with giveaways! Go enter! 🙂
Oh – and any opinions? Questions? Things you’d like to ask authors in the crazy Author Interviews? (We’ve got a number coming up.)
