Last night millions tuned in to watch the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, where many well deserving people received awards for a bunch of movies I haven’t seen. Okay, that’s not entirely true–I’ve seen Inception, Toy Story 3 and Alice in Wonderland. And while I haven’t seen The King’s Speech, I loved Colin Firth in Nanny McPhee and Love Actually.
I must confess I didn’t watch the awards.
I figure if I want to see a bunch of overdressed people with copious amounts of plastic surgery and eating disorders, all I have to do in drive into Houston and go to the Galleria.
But that’s not what this post is about.
This post is about winning some REALLY valuable stuff, not just some gold, naked bald guy. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
I wonder how many of you actually read any of that stuff and how many just scrolled down to see who the winners are? I see how you are…
Okay, enough already!
The following winners were chosen by random.org. Each comment, tweet, and Facebook status update associated with this contest was assigned a number. These numbers were selected in descending order based on the time and date of the entry. Make sense? Alrighty then.
The 3rd prize of One year of free blog hosting + a standard license for Standard Theme goes to:
Karin Fendick (aka His Firefly), writer of Flickers of a Faithful Firefly.
The 2nd place prize of One year of free blog hosting, a domain name (.com or .net) and a standard licence for Standard Theme goes to:
Ryan Tate (They call him Tater Salad–okay, not really. I stole that line from Ron White), writer of Doorframes of Taterhouse.
And the Grand Prize winner of One year of free blog hosting, a domain name (.com or .net), a standard licence for Standard Theme plus site design by the lovely and talented Peter Pollock of New Blog Hosting and yours truly is….
The writer of the plainest little ol’ blog you ever did see, but one of my favorite writers in the blogosphere…
Kirsten Nilsen of Nilsen Life
