Winners! And, why Pinocchio probably never gets hemorrhoids

Judging from the entries, I’m guessing that not too many of us are math or gym teachers?

I don’t blame you guys. I once had a math teacher who equated every single thing to football. This may have had something to do with his position as varsity football coach. Or maybe he was just an egotistical, chauvinistic, colossal asshole. I’m thinking it was a combination of both.

One year I did, however, have a gym teacher I liked. She was called Mrs. Weeble and she was extremely short, slightly round and I’m pretty sure her family tree grew in a forest called Weebles Wobble But They Don’t Fall Down.

As of 9:00 pm eastern time yesterday, there were 241 entries to the Tiddlywinks contest, also known as the cutest giveaway in the history of EVER. I asked to choose two random numbers between 1 and 241, inclusive, and this is what it spewed forth:




And the winning comments were:








Congratulations Becky and Staci! Contact me at within 48 hours to claim your prizes! Oh, and guys? When you are accosted on the street by a short, busty, bespectacled, fortyish, prematurely gray haired woman begging and pleading for you to donate your Tiddlywinks to her because she simply has to have one OR SHE WILL SURELY DIE, don’t be scared.

I don’t bite. Not too hard, anyway.

This was my last giveaway for the year! Thanks to all of you who participated and a ginormous shout out to Scottie of Tiddlywinks for sharing her adorable talent with us. She’s made me smile since I first stumbled onto her store. And in the immortal words of Buddy the Elf, “Smiling’s my favorite!”

I’ll leave you with the card that I got Nate for his birthday recently, which totally made me smile and even giggle:



*even more crickets*

*crickets breeding like bunnies*

Yeah. That was pretty much my family’s reaction as well.

Nobody gets me in this house.

    Thank you thank you thank you! I can’t wait to get my hands on this cuteness! (Is it ok if I sleep with it for awhile before the baby is born???)

    Congratulations to the winners! Those Tiddlywinks are totally adorable.

    Also, I hope someday you will post a photo of your hair. Ever since you announced your intention to stop dying and just go with the flow of things I’ve been dying to see how things worked out! Why can’t we simply have one cool streak of white right in the front? *sigh*
