Guessing game winner, ULTIMATE blog of all time, and Set the Dark on Fire winner!

Well, thanks for being so patient! Life got a little jam-packed this week, and of course, blogging is the easiest thing to put off another day, and then another, and then OMG, it's Wednesday?!?!

First off, the guessing game results: as part of my Kreative Blogger award post, I had to name 7 things I love. I lied, and put 6 things I love, and one thing I secretly hate. Then I made a guessing game, and one person out of whoever guesses what I hate gets an amazing award, plus 3 extra entries into the Jill Sorenson contest.

A recap, because of course my likes and dislikes are so fascinating to the world.
Readers smartly decided I probably don't secretly hate hanging out with my husband, my cats, reading or popcorn at the movies. That left running, getting into a hot, sun warmed car or pedicures. I loved all the reasoning. However, I actually love running, unless it's above 90F or below 10F. I also loved getting into sun-warmed cars.

And I hate pedicures!
That's right, I don't like people messing with my toes. Good thing Mr Crane is not a foot fetishist!

Five of my buddies got it right. Then I scientifically had Mr. Crane chose a number between 1 & 5, and he chose 1: LORI!

LORI, you are The winner of the Ultimate Blogger of all time and you get three entries to win Jill's book!

The Ultimate Blogger of all time award.
Lori, this is a very special award. As you can imagine, there can be only ONE ultimate blog of all time at at time. Lori is actually involved in three great blogs:
I just finished Reading - Smart, fun book reviews
Living in the House of Testosterone - her personal blog
Let's Gab - a fun blog that's currently taking a break.

Only one blog can have it at one time. So, you can keep it and display it proudly on the sidebar of any blog (or not display it at all!).
OR you can forget about it forever if you want, without doing anything ever again and just know that you are special.
OR you can give it to somebody--tomorrow, next year, whenever you feel so moved. But if you give it away, then you have to delete it from your sidebar! (I guess it can stay in a post, though.)

Bottom line: You can do whatever you please with this award.

Okay. Now, onto the Jill Sorenson winner!
Okay, we had 25 entries if you don't count Jill and me, and then I added in three for Lori, and used this time because Mr. Crane was crabby he had to take off his headphones for the last guess.

And wow, it picked 27! Lori's number! Lori, OMG, you are a double winner today! You have won Set the Dark on Fire, Jill's new book!

So, send me your address miss lucky! Maybe you should buy a lottery ticket, too!

Congrats Lori :D
Oh, those were my options, shouldn't have gone for the car lol

Patti said...

Congratulations Lori - maybe you should run out and buy a lottery ticket!!

Lori said...

Holy guacamole! Wow! You like me! You really like me! *snort*

Given Wendy's post today, and my response to it, I can't decide if this is a totally appropriate award, or if it's totally inappropriate, LOL!

I do thank you, though. And am totally completely psyched to get a copy of Jill's new book, which I was getting ready to order on Amazon, cause I'm dying to read it (she put up an excerpt today - the tease).

Hey - I finished the Harlequin that we all were looking at over at Taja's blog - Courting Trouble. Want it?

Go, Lori, Go!

Renee said...

Yay, Lori!

Congrats! :-D

Hilcia said...

Double congratulations, Lori!

Liza said...

Congrats Lori!

Jill Sorenson said...

Congrats to Lori! I'd have guessed the pedicure thing, too. I'm weird about personal space and hate going to the dentist or even having my haircut. Don't like people in my face, LOL. But--a pedicure is quite nice, IMO!

Hot car? My A/C just went out and I DO NOT LIKE.

P.S. I demand more transparency in this blog award. And the nomination process is flawed. (kidding!)

Serena said...

Congrats to Lori...Woo hoo

Congrats Lori!

Rosie said...

I should be congratulating Lori like everyone else but all that I can think about is *gasp* You don't like pedicures?

Isn't that against the rules or something?

Christine said...

Sweet!!! Congrats, Lori! =)
