And the winners are....

Sock Flowers and Nearly Blind Threesomes!!!

Congrats to ~h~ whose husband turned her distaste for a Hallmark holiday into a sweet moment involving gym socks. As the winner of the ":::sigh::: That's So Sweet" award, she is the lucky recipient of one of my favorite culinary resources, The Professional Chef (8th ed.).

Congrats also to Maggiesara, winner of the "Cuts Like a Knife" award, who will soon receive her very own set of Laguoile steak knives.

And, yes, I know I said I wasn't going to post the winners until tomorrow... but I realized you can see who won by clicking on the poll results anyway, so there you go.

Be back Saturday.

p.s. -- I had a flat tire yesterday in front of my house, and the guy from AAA came out to change the tire and when he did, he accidentally LOCKED HIMSELF OUT of his truck, and had to call ANOTHER guy from AAA to come bail him out. Oh, the hilarity.

UPDATE: I'm having trouble with my outbound email, so I can't get in touch with you, ~H~ and Maggiesara. Will you please use the link in th right-hand column of the blog to email me your mailing addresses so I can get these prizes out to you? Thanks much.

Yes, congratulations indeed to ~h~ and Maggiesara... I am very jealous of their prizes, as well as sympathetic to your AAA woes. That little anecdote could very well sum up my life.

P.S. LOVE your blog.

Oh my gosh, I won! I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Carol and her genius blog, all the voters, the makers of Champion athletic socks, metal barbecue skewers, and duct tape. Oh, and my husband. He's good people.
Thanks guys!!
