B-day Giveaway - Winner Announced
That's it folks. My birthday has passed, I'm officially one year older now and all remains the same. As expected, eh? heh
For reasons different than getting older -- I soon found out -- I needed humor, and you provided me lots of it. I was particularly entertained by the appearance of some characters on my party to which creators I'd like to give a special thanks:
>> Laura Eno, for bringing Jezebel to the party, who behaved almost perfectly by not eating the guests, although she scared the birthday girl, knowing that I'm terrified of her. uh
>> Grace Crone, for bringing her dragon Aurmid to the party, who made a crusty roasted goat with the help(?) of my trolls Kratan and Kutril.
>> Jodi MacArthur, for offering her beloved Carnivorous Pony as a gift and giving me some amazing intergalactic coffee. I tried to put the Pony together with Jezebel for a chat but it seems it didn't work. Too bad, heh.
>> Lexx Clarke, for zombifying his artist to my entertainment.
>> Angie Capozello, for the moisted donuts Nox and Grimm brought me. I didn't even notice the dog drool in them, see? heh
>> Sam Adamson, for Botchett's and Swazzle's sneaky visit. The only prank they've played on me was stealing some ice cream; since it was delicious I understand them, heh.
Before I announce the winner, I'd like to thank everyone who took the time comment and made an effort to be funny, entertaining or simply wished me a happy birthday. I did, and it was thanks to you!
One final thanks goes for Monica Marier, who graciously gave an ARC of her debut novel Must Love Dragons, which I read in one sit. I had a very quiet and entertaining birthday, which is precisely what I wanted. Besides, I had the coolest party here at Randomities that I'll never forget. Thank you all from my heart! <3
Now, my gift card was of $20. Since most books you asked as a present cost much less, and you all were so successful in amusing me, I've decided to giveaway two books, which will go to:
1) Maria A.Kelly, for drawing the first chuckle of the day, and a good one, with fingers and all! She chose Laura Eno's new book, Prophecy Moon.
2) Angie Capozello, for bringing be donuts in the most funny way possible. Besides I'm a drooler over Nox and Grimm! (pun intended, heh) She chose Sara Ash's Children of the Serpent Gate, book 3 of the Tears of Artamon.
Maria and Angie, please send your physical addresses to: mari dot juniper at gmail dot com. I hope you girls will enjoy your presents. Please let me know what you think once you finish reading them.
Thanks everyone for playing and have a great weekend! :)
