Drumroll, Please...

I was tempted to throw up a random post about stuff like what I had for lunch, and who won the Boston Marathon, and the fact that I have Full House on in the background while I write this (did you know that Bob Saget was supposed to be 33 years old on that show?!), but then I thought it might be just too mean to keep you all in the dark about the results of last week's contest. And what a contest it was!

Seriously, you people pulled it out big time. It even exceeded my pipe dream of 40 comments, which is no small feat for this small time writer. So I think I owe a big thank you to everyone who read and commented over the last few days. Sure, I pretty much had to bribe you all, but whatevs!

Without further ado, the winners:

The "secret magic" number I had chosen beforehand was #23. No reason for it, it just popped into my head as I was writing. And since I didn't really think things through when I posted I'm going to go ahead and designate two winners- one for the 23rd comments including mine, and one for the 23rd comment not including mine.

#23: Ween! This sunny CA lady is currently studying to be a librarian and I often feel her pain when she describes the trials and tribulations of Cataloging homework. And if I know library school, she could probably use a good grin.

#23 (not including my comments): Megan! My lovely friend Megan now lives far away in Denver and I miss her terribly. Especially now that she's totally preggers with her first baby and I probably won't even get to see him until he's 18 and flies here to follow in our footsteps and spend his college years drinking in Boston. Meg, you don't know how hard it was for me to refrain from posting the picture of you wearing those goggly-eye glasses freshman year at Brandeis! I can't wait to send your stuff.

And the very special comment #40 goes to: Aaron! The Acerock has been a bit gloom and doom-like lately, but I aim to change all that with a mini-package of smiley face odds and ends.

Congrats to everyone! And if you didn't win, please know that I still love you. A lot. And maybe, if you're good, I will host another contest sometime in the future. For now though, it will be good to go back to my regular number of comments- the thrill of seeing those numbers go up was a bit much for my poor little librarian heart.

So if the big winners could kindly mail me their addresses I will make it my Spring Break Goal to get those packages mailed out before I head back to school for the long haul 'till summer.

Happy National Library Week, everyone!

in one of the early episodes of full house, danny tanner freaks out because he is about to turn 30. clearly 30 was more like 40 in the late 80's (at least that is what i keep telling myself).

Congrats on getting so many comments. 10 used to be my magic number to make me feel like people care about what I write...Now I'm excited to get 2. I think blogland is fading...

Yay; I am glad you exceeded your goal. As for Danny Tanner... Wow. I am 33 now, and it gives me a panic attack just thinking about having three kids already (one of whom is a preteen whiny-ass).

Another one that seems just wrong to me? If Homer and Marge had Bart when they were shortly out of high school, that puts the two of them in their late twenties or 30-ish as well. Homer Simpson--younger than me? Impossible.

Okay, I'll bite, what's with the picture? Are those anthropomorphic noodle people? I'm kind of scared of them.

Hey, congratulations to me!

I was tempted to keep commenting until I hit #40 yesterday but you know....didn't want to be all spammy, now I am glad, mr. aaron deserves to win.

even though in all seriousness if you ever have a random prize to give away I will always take one.

I'm glad you got your comments! What a fun contest. I wasn't so much intrigued by either the sweater or the hair but was fascinated by the lazer show going on over your head. Have a great vacation!
