We have a winner! Or two!
What a busy weekend! Between finishing the chicken run, decorating the tree, shipping orders, and not cleaning the house or doing any laundry at all, I barely had a moment to myself! But because I know that all you greedy contestants are waiting breathlessly on the edges of your expanding seats for precisely this moment… I guilted Isabella into helping me, gathered the chickens, and cockadoodlewoot woot! We had a contest!
The Garcias chose the winner so quickly and we had so much fun
forcing chickens into a cramped laundry bin interacting with our poultry that we couldn’t stand to see it end in one swift, scaly stride.
So we let them choose not one, but TWO lucky winners!
I know! The joy and wonder of selfless giving IS alive this holiday season! (Lucky winners, please email your addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
A certain unnamed contestant (Len) sent me a link to my previous post translated into Gangsta slang by a satirical search engine called gizoogle.net*. I laughed so hard I cried. Here’s the link (those of you sensitive to the f-word might want to skip it). I especially love the “translations” of Mary Oliver’s poem and your comments!
*Gizoogle was originally inspired by Snoop’s “Doggy Fizzle Televizzle” program on MTV. Read more about it here.
Thanks so much for all of your thoughtful entries — you’ve inspired and humbled me and it’s been my pleasure to get to know you a little better through your responses.
And now, without further adieu…
