Waiting to Score Winner!


You know how every once in a while, something happens that makes you laugh out loud? Well that just happened to me when I assigned numbers to everyone who entered and then used an online number generator to choose a winner.

Now according to Google Analytics, we have Musers all over the globe. Austrailia, Singapore, the USA, the UK, Iraq, Canada, you name it. I couldn't wait to see where Waiting to Score would go.

So here's the screenshot from the Random generator I used:

Twenty-one was the winning number. I went to see who's name matched the number, and well...here's a scan of the part of my list (you might have to click on it to see it better):

As you can see, Brown-eyed Girl was the winner! So what's so funny about that?

Well this book could have travelled anywhere in the world. In fact, I figured it quite likely the book would go to someone in the United States, as I know many of the entries came from there.

Instead, it goes to Brown-eyed Girl, who is not only a Canadian...but my neighbor! She lives just down the street, like three houses away. Isn't that crazy?


Instead of popping it in the mail, she got a personal delivery. Like I said, you had to see it to believe it.

Congrats, Brown-Eyed Girl
and thanks to all who entered!

LOL, Nate--I stole the idea from Beth--that's what she did for her book giveaway, and I thought, 'We'll wouldn't that make life easier!' so I did it too. ;-)

Brown-Eyed Girl: Congrats on winning. And yeah, that is strange about our house colors...*twilight zone music*

Thanks for playing everyone!

I had a book giveaway in my last contest and my friend, who I was having dinner with the day after the contest, also won. It felt so rigged but that's how it went!
