Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

So here's the thing. I was going to do this as a video blog. I really was. I know I've made empty promises about video blogging in the past. But this time, it was for real. I turned on the webcam and tried to do this thing right.

Part of my reasoning was so that you could see that I was doing this drawing on the up and up. I was going to show on film how I put the contestants' names on little folded up pieces of paper and put them in a hat and shook it around and then drew one out at random. Now you just have to take my word for it.

The footage was jumpy, I could barely be heard... it was a mess. The lesson that I'm taking away from this whole fiasco is that if I'm ever to really start video blogging, I'm just gonna need a better camera. 'Cause the one that came built into the laptop kinda sucks.

But I digress. This post is supposed to be about who won the awesome prize pack in my Fifty Follower Giveaway. I know that each and every one of you is on the edge of his or her seat. Even the ones who failed to enter the contest. I don't hold it against you for not entering. I'm just glad you still follow my blog.

I do want to thank each of the followers who did decide to enter. To Zac, Brandon, Jessica, JMitch, Aubrey and Amy, I really do appreciate you guys taking the time to play along and fuel my ego just a little bit. And so, without further gilding the lily and with no more ado, I present your champion...


Congratulations, Amy! You will soon be the proud owner of the most awesome movie ever, the first season of the smartest comedy on TV, and a t-shirt that just might make you indestructible. You may not want to test that theory about the t-shirt. In fact, the S is really just for show.

Well, that's it for now. Thank you again to all who participated. I hope you enjoy Carp Dime and continue to be regular visitors. I'm sure that everyone will have a chance to win something again someday. After all, I'm sure hitting 100 followers is an inevitability that cannot be denied.
