Well, yes. The contest ended Monday … so I should have announced the winner Tuesday morning … but I (stepping up on pretty pink, bedazzled pedestal) have been busy celebrating the birth of our nation this week.
So EXCUSE ME for being patriotic.
I’M SORRY if my allegiance became your inconvenience.
And if CARING MORE ABOUT AMERICA than about this whole website contest is wrong, then I don’t wanna be …
Oh, whatever. I had stuff to do. But don’t mistake my slackassery for disinterest. Hosting this inaugural link-up was a blast for me. You guys really outdid yourselves. I promise whenever I get around to my next one that it’ll be easier (and WAY more brainless!) for all of us. And, that said, I guess I should actually be announcing a winner. I so wish I could name all of you.
“You’re all winners!”
Alas, the ODNT budget barely allows for one winner let alone a whole panel of victors. So, we put it up for a vote and let YOU decide. Ladies and gentlemen, the tribe has spoken. (I have never seen Survivor. Gosh, I hope I used that quote correctly.) The winner of the Jud & Bill Episode 11 Contest is … Amy Ragg of Betty Rants.
Interesting Chunk of ODNT Trivia – Amy’s dad, Wyman Ragg, was the winner of the Jud & Bill photo contest in May. No, ODNT is not in any way related to, in cahoots with or being blackmailed by the Ragg Family. Like Father, Like Daughter I always say.
Congratulations, Amy! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your snail mail address so I can send you a little token of my esteem. I don’t want to ruin the surprise for Amy so I won’t reveal what it is here until I confirm she’s received it. Until then, please go visit Amy on Twitter (@oneragglette) and tell her she’s awesome.
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You to everyone who researched, read, wrote and voted. You are now all of my favorite readers and can sit in the front section of my blog nearest to the stage. That’s where we serve the good drinks.
