We have WINNERS!
So my son is turning eleven tomorrow – and today we had eight 11ish year old boys in the house for movies and unplanned mayhem.
“Hey, GUYS!” shouted Daniel, after they finished pushing entire cupcakes into their mouths. “Wanna go up to my room, turn the lights out and pretend the room is consuming us?”
There was a stampede. And to think we thought they’d want to have popcorn and watch a film. Ah ha ha ha. I did make them clean up the room after it had spat them back out, which I was rather proud of as it was not a popular-mom moment.
But now I’m as wiped out as a beginner surfer, and will be asleep three minutes after I post this, but I couldn’t let the weekend end without drawing some names from a very scientific hat.
Thus, without further ado, we have the winner of a lightly used arc of the tremendous Kneebone Boy!
who has her OWN amazing-sounding middle-grade book coming out in 2012. I can’t wait to read it! Congratulations, Caroline!
But wait! There’s more! After reading the comments, I decided to give away something else today, this time in the name of birthday solidarity. As you have gathered from the above, my son is an almost-leap-year baby so when…
said that her little sister was turning eleven on Monday too, I decided we could not let that piece of serendipity go uncelebrated. So Genna, I’d like to send something out to you and your sister too! Almost leap-yearers, unite!
Last but not least, a prize from WAAAAAY back when, is
who probably doesn’t even remember entering, but is having knee-surgery next week and so I’ll send along something fun to read while you recover.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS!
I also accidentally snipped a rather large chunk off my left pinky trying to prune a half-dead houseplant. So typing is odd. Hadn’t realized quite how useful pinkies were in the whole typing thing. Actually, as I watch myself type I realize that I’m not using my right pinky for anything, but my left pinky does the letter A. And the shift. Both of these are very useful in the typing world. Now a big bandaged digit keeps whamming down on the keyboard and I have to delete and rewrite whole chunks of deformed text. Boo hiss.
So that’s all for tonight! Winners, be in touch or I’ll be in touch, and tune in tomorrow, true believers, for the continuing crunch!
