in which the author makes excuses

Thursday, April 15, 2010 |
I seem to be perennially late here at the blog (at least regarding awarding prizes). This time I have a good reason though, I swear. I’m going (well, 90% sure I’m going) to AUSTRIA next week! For work purposes. And I get to live in a castle while I’m there.

This one, in fact. I think it’ll be good. Like, FAIRY TALE, anyone? But yeah, work has been crazy and I’ve been at the office for some pretty long hours in anticipation of the trip. That is not a complaint. It is simply an EXCUSE. A good one. Don’t give me that look!

So without further meanderings or rabbit trailing, I’d like to announce that…

and Rabid Fox of Wag The Fox...

...have each won $30 to Amazon or The Book Depository! Join me in congratulating them! This also marks the ‘official’ end of my blog anniversary contest. Everyone wrote really great answers on what I should blog about, and many entrants made me laugh. It was a very joyous thing. And now I will never run out of ideas! Look out for another contest soon, and thank you all!
