I Won Something!

Did you know that many bloggers have regular giveaways?  And that I never win any?  Well guess what!  All that has changed, and today I learned that I and one other person won a couple of bookmarks from the ever-gracious Jennifer at Literate Housewife!  Which is actually kind of awesome, considering I used to collect bookmarks (I wonder whatever happened to that construction paper-decorated tin can and all those Garfield bookmarks).  Check out her site; she's on a personal mission to "discover" Neil Gaiman this month by reading his works - a great mission, if you ask me.

Random memory: the first time I won anything (at least that I can remember) was the first year that I participated in the Summer Reading Program at ACPL as a kid.  Back then they drew weekly prizes, and I was the very first person to win a prize for participating (I think I won a t-shirt, but I could be completely wrong).  As a kid, I thought that was the coolest thing ever, and not much has changed since then.  Thanks, Jennifer!


  1. I'm so happy that you finally won something from a blogger. LOL! Hopefully the design that's in my head will translate well. :)

  2. Prizes are the only reason in my mind to ever compete in anything. ever.

    I realize we are different in this way- but, I still think, even when you have a competitive nature- prizes are the best part of winning. :)
    Love you. miss you. lets talk soon.
