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. Australia, Singapore, the USA, the UK, Iraq, Canada, you name it. I couldn’t wait to see where Waiting to Score would go.
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 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!
