Well folks, I didn't think we'd be able to do it, but we passed the 20,000 dollar mark on the name raffle. I'll never doubt you again.
Can I just take a moment to say how awesome y'all are? Yeah. You're awesome.
Because we hit 20K, I'll be drawing three winners. But it won't be for a couple days yet, as we're waiting for the last of the mailed-in entries to trickle through the postal system. Rest assured that I'll be posting up the results as soon as I've had a chance to chat with the winners.
On a related note, it warms my heart to see so many people rooting for Carly Trowbridge to win. A few people even donated money on her behalf. Extra style points there.
I'll admit that I'm excited for the drawing, and a little nervous too. There are some great names in there, and others will fit with some tweaking. But a few I can't think of how I could make them work. If I draw one of those, we'll be able to work it out, but I don't relish the thought of telling someone the name of their beloved dead goldfish just won't work in The Wise Man's Fear.
In other news, Oot rolled over yesterday. This might not seem like a big deal. But it is. It is a Big Deal. It's possible that there has never been a bigger deal happen in this house. If you'd been listening outside, you probably would've thought Sarah and I were watching the Packer game, or perhaps celebrating man's first step on the moon or something.
For those of you who have an interest in such things, here's a picture of him looking very pleased with himself.
That's all for right now. I'm in the midst of some pretty intensive revisions, so I don't have much brainspace to spare for being blog-witty. Rest assured there is some profound coolness right around the corner.
