Time to announce the winner of the Momster!!!

(For those of you who are new here, this is a necklace, featuring a motherly monster that I designed for charity - $16 of every sale goes to Unicef. See this post for deets)

This actually freaks me out just a bit, because the winner won by the "supposedly" RANDOM.ORG - which is supposed to give me a random #. But it gave me my lucky number!! 13! So does that mean my lucky number is really truly now proven to be a lucky number? Or does it mean that Random.org actually does some sort of StarTrek style brain scan while it's "thinking" of your random numbers?

Especially since the numbering in the comments was off from the beginning? I wish Blogger would auto number comments actually. Hey Google - can you do that please? Bloggers everywhere would love it.

Anyway - I picked the actual 13th comment since it got all crazy, and that is my beloved Elizabeth!!
I thought it was very interesting that several of you mentioned this same book with equal reverence. I had never heard of it so I need to read it.

I'm also curious if any of the rest of you ever read Higglety Pigglety Pop about the dog who swallowed the mop?I really loved this somewhat creepy and sad, beautifully illustrated book. It will squeeze your heart.

Elizabeth - email me with your address so I can have them ship the Momster!

And remember, if any of you want to buy the Momster - she's only available till May 10, and $16 of every sale goes to Unicef.

Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :)

  1. Congrats to Elizabeth...looks like I'll just have to buy my own now :( LOL!

  2. WOW - congrats on having a necklace made with your design!!!! Congrats to Elizabeth too!!

  3. oh - congrats elizabeth - i had my fingers crossed as i scrolled and read but today is not my lucky day!!

    I DO however have a funny story to share. I just got it in my email. Debated holding on to it until next Monday, hoping to win the MMLM honors. But figure I'll forget between now and then. And it cracked me up to no end. END!! Lydia - don't have a mouthful of liquid as you continue reading!!
    I'm just sayin'....

    Jack is a great cat and the kids carry him around and sit on him and
    nothing ever bothers him. He is prone to hang out and nap all day long on this mat in our bathroom.

    Well, Bill and I have two sons, aged 4 and 3 years old, and a 1-year-old daughter. The middle one is Eli. Eli really loves chapstick. LOVES it.

    He keeps asking to use my chapstick and then losing it. So, finally, one day I showed him where in the bathroom I keep my chapstick and how he could use it whenever he wanted to, but he needed to put it right back in
    the drawer when he was done.

    Mother's Day 2008, we were having the typical rush around and trying to get ready for church with everyone crying and carrying on. The two boys had been fighting over the toy in the cereal box. I was trying to nurse my little one at the same time I was putting on my make-up. Everything was a mess.

    We finally had the older one and the baby loaded in the car and we were looking for Eli. Bill and I had searched everywhere and I finally went into the bathroom. And there was Eli. He was applying my chap-stick very carefully to Jack's rear end. Eli looked right into my eyes and said "chapped." Now, if you have a cat, you know that he is right --

    their little butts do look pretty chapped. And, frankly, Jack didn't

    seem to mind.

    Bill's eyes met mine... You know, one of those parental, mind-meld
    moments. The only question that came simultaneously to Bill and me at that point was whether it was the FIRST time Eli had done that to the cat's behind or the hundredth.

    And THAT is my favorite Mother's Day moment ever because it reminds me that no matter how hard we try to civilize these glorious little
    creatures, there will always be that day when you realize they've been using your chapstick on the cat's butt.

  4. Okay - this is pretty - I don't know - TWILIGHT ZONE --- but go check this out and notice who won her blog candy!


    Oh man - my WV is "irate" - SERIOUSLY???

    pop culture term in which cassie larson ranks her favorite blogging sites. an irate score of 1-20 is much sought after!!!


  5. Ha ha ha ha- chapped cat butt! Well, I am radical- i think anything chapped is funny.

  6. Congrats to Elizabeth... lucky number 13 will be shipping out tomorrow.

    Thank you again Lydia for the great art and also a big thank you to everyone who voted and helped spread the word of our little contest.

  7. I know I'd seen numbered comments in other blogger blogs, so your post finally inspired me to track the instructions down.

    See here: http://quiterandom.com/tutorials/translation-numbering-comments/

    It only works with embedded comments, so make sure you select that option in the comments settings.

  8. OMG...my heart was racing..13 is my lucky number and that's the book I wrote about too...gosh dang (see below)...13 is apparently NO LONGER my lucky number!!!

    as in... if we all say DANG together would that be a CO-DEANG?


Every time you leave a comment, a new LOLcat is born. ALSO - don't panic if you don't see your comment right away - I moderate my comments to keep those spammers out, so your comment will show up in short order. Unless you're linking me to Russian brides or Nigerian princes.
