to announce their choice.. which they conducted in private through a long night of reading and rereading all entries. Their moans and giggles were signal enough they were taking their critical responsibilities very seriously and when they finally appeared late this morning smiling and happy, I knew they'd come to the right decision. The winner of the 'world's ugliest scarf' is Scarlet. If you go back to the contest posts and read her tender story about young love lost I'm sure you'll be as touched as my two dear friends obviously were. Scarlet, please send me your 'realworld' address and the scarf will no longer be simply virtual.
BUT... In this contest everyone is a winner!
There will be consolation prizes for everyone who entered a story - the original drawings done for 'a true story with pictures'.. and a surprise addition in one mystery selection also chosen by baba and etna. So, fairlane, Lindsay, Zee and Gary please e-mail me your addresses - except Gary since I have yours.
For anyone who comes along and has no idea what this is all about you might just have some fun watching this:
If you never saw Joel Hodgson's MST3K you're in for a treat.... and if you did see it and collected all the episodes through long hours of videotaping like we did, you're going to be even happier that they're BACK!!!
