So first off, thanks to everyone who stopped by to comment on our book giveaway here at the blog, or on Facebook, or even via direct email, an option a few of you chose. I’ve assigned y’all numbers and am going to fire up the ol’ random number generator in a minute. Isn’t it exciting when I do this in Real Time?
Yeah, so ok, I guess if I don’t hit “publish” until the whole post is written, you’re not reading this yet, so it’s more like Surreal Time, but work with me here.
But before I spin the Big Virtual Interweb Roulette Wheel, I just want to acknowledge all the awesome mothers out there, my own and everyone’s everywhere including YOU if you fit that description!
I don’t have kids myself. Having carefully considered the job responsibilities and remuneration and having concluded “no f#cking way,” I have nothing but admiration for all you out there who took the job on, and perform all the daily heroics required to do it properly.
For the record, I think it’s shitty you only get one day of recognition.
Hell, today is apparently National Nylon Stocking Day and National Chocolate Chip day. They get the same amount of time you Mom’s do?
So let’s pretend the fact I’m a day late is really because I’m giving you another additional Mother’s day. Round those kids up and tell them to make you another burnt-toast breakfast, and tell Hubby you’re eating out again tonight, damn it, because Crabby said it’s the new Law.
Anyway, in honor of your extra day, before we get to the giveaway winners, here are two belated Mother’s day-related links:
And for the Other Mothers out there, whose children may not be human but are nearly as demanding? Here’s a video that already been all over the Web because as usual I’m the last to see these things. But whatever.
Okay, so now let’s get down to Giveaway Business.
Who won Elizabeth Babcock’s most excellent book Why We Overeat and How to Stop?
Interesting! So this time out, the RNG was apparently drawn to commenters with 3-letter names:
Physical copy: Val
PDF copy: Mel
Congratulations Val and Mel!
So please email crabby mcslacker (all one word) at gmail followed by the usual dot com (as though the spambots will be fooled, but one can hope). Let me know your contact info, and for physical copy, your mailing address.
If I don’t hear from you guys by next monday, sorry, I’ll have to regift your copy to another entrant.
And if you didn’t win, consider a quick trip over to Amazon where Why We Overeat and How to Stop will set you back a mere ten bucks on Kindle!
And hey, did you guys celebrate Mother’s Day? How was it?
