W00t!

Gosh, I'm feeling like I'm finally clawing my way into the 21st century by learning some new words! Not long ago I made a hat for my teen with "meh" on it (after which I had many people asking me just WHAT it meant). I just found this at unwords.com.........
1. (n.) A multi-purpose response, primarily used to imply a degree of indifference. Tone of voice and circumstance often implies a meaning. Can be used when you don't want to answer an awkward or embarrassing question, or if you just plain have nothing else to say, and you want the other person to interpret the "meh" however he/she chooses. As in: Q: "What do you think of my new dress?" A: "Meh." or Q: "What do you want to do tonight?" A: "Meh."

So now you know!

Now I'm heading my blog post with w00t - note the zeros in the middle. This is a term of excitement which derives, I believe, from Dungeons and Dragons fans saying "Wow, Loot!" At least that's what one site told me when I Googled it! If I'm wrong, feel free to correct me.

I am totally off topic here as my reason for posting is to tell you the winner of the book, bag and chocolate, and I am making you wait as I know you are all on tenterhooks (especially those who commented and whose names were in the draw). First I want to thank everyone who did comment, you said such wonderful things, and.........OK, I'll get to the point.........

The winner is.................

REBECCA! Rebecca, please email me at veganpal02 AT gmail DOT com to give me your address. Congratulations to you, and commiserations to the other hopeful entrants. I'm sure we'll have more giveaways in the future.

W00T!! (I thought that was appropriate!!) I am thrilled! As soon as I saw that bag I fell in love with it. And anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE chocolate. So, now that I own a knitting book, it means I'm going to have to figure out how to knit, right? Hmmm..... This could be interesting...
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I got my prize today. Yay!! I am so excited! What a beautifully sewn bag. It will be used a lot!! The chocolate is fabulous: Green & Black's organic dark chocolate with cherries... yummy!!! (although my five year old had a bite & spit it out -- Yay -- more for me!) As for the knitting book, my kids have decided that I should be able to figure out how to knit clothes for their DOLLS. Apparently they have a lot more faith in my abilities than I do!!?? It has been a great day... I found out that my dentist "wrote off" my daughter's emergency dental bill right before Christmas, the lady infront of me in the drive-thru at Starbucks bought my coffee for me, and then my prize arrived.... Maybe I should go buy a lottery ticket...
