I'll be announcing the winners of the book giveaway in a bit, but first I'm very excited that I've been given the opportunity to review another product from CSN Stores, the purveyors of such fine things as sling backpacks to pet beds. I'm pretty sure my review will be involving something toasty!
So on with the winners!
There was some conjecture, suspicion even, by a certain (probably former) reader after my last giveaway that I was less than virtuous in the choosing of people who win anything from me here at The Sporadic Cook. There was talk of elitism, and favoritism toward food bloggers. I was aghast. Taken aback. I'll even go so far as to say I was dumb-founded! Nothing could be farther from the truth. If it seems as if only food bloggers win anything from me, MAYBE IT COULD BE BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE WHO VISIT MY SITE ARE FOOD BLOGGERS. Just a thought.
So how, just how do I prove my innocence? What's a girl to do? All you have is my word. All I have is your blind belief...or do I?
So recorded here in a sequential image, uni-media event, the winner picking events exactly as they happened...
First I recorded the names of everyone who used the super secret codeword (or some form of it) on a piece of paper in my somewhat arthritic scrawl and cut each name into it's own strip.
Nextly*, I folded each strip into exact thirds, placed them into a fine handcrafted porcelain (or clay) container, shook the snot out of them with my chubby little hand, then stirred them up with a blue Bic 'round stic' pen in medium point.
Lastly, I randomly chose two slips from said container and placed them on my scratched up side table, unfolded them to reveal the winners are:
Congratulations to both of you and thanks to everybody for playing!
I'll be contacting you by email to get your addresses for your book to be sent to you, but first I have to rest. All the big words and indignation have me completely exhausted!
*I do realize nextly is not a word.
