and the winner is...

Well, the results of the very first (and possibly last) Buenos Burritos giveaway are in. I'm sure all three of my readers are dying to find out which one of you will receive this beautiful, handbound leather notebook with the vintage map endsheets.

After consulting with the esteemed judges, it was at first thought we should judge all entries on artistic merit, then we decided to employ a more efficient method of choosing the winner, so we chose the highly scientific "eenie, meenie, miney, moe" method.

To tell you the truth, the judges and I were exhausted and overwhelmed by the sheer number of entries that came flooding in.
That number, was in fact astounding. After carefully monitoring my email for six days, and obsessively checking the blog for comments, and carefully checking for fraudulent entries that should be disqualified, here is the final tally: zero.

So, if anyone out there wants a lovely little leather bound notebook, I'll be happy to send it to the next person to leave a comment.

Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'll go drown my disappointment in some red wine with a side of fudge brownies.

Hi Jane!

This is Ann, one of the other bloggers (at the time I was just a reader) who met with you at our Bossy meet-up, rather our Bossy No Show! Anyway, have been keeping up with your blog and thoroughly enjoying it, though never had the courage to leave a message until now...until this sad story about the notebook! You don't have to send it to me, but just wanted to say hi. Hope the wine tasted fantastic!!
Take care,
Ann Pinzelik - (it's mostly about family for family...)

I guess I won't get the notebook now, but whatever! I forgot to enter the contest after we spoke the other day, duh! I am a regular reader, however. And neighbor.

Aw. That's disappointing. I should have come by earlier!

I love the pic with the 2 dogs on the couch though - that's priceless.

Thanks, you guys. I knew I had at least three readers!

Ok, so Ann-you get the notebook. Just email me your address and I'll send it to you, or maybe we could meet up again for coffee sometime?

And can come too! When are you going to get your own blog?

Thanks, g...I'm a regular reader of your blog...just not a regular commenter.

Your dogs make great bookends!

That right there is why I love labradors.

Wish I lived closer than 12 hours away, or thereabouts -- I'd bring the red wine if you make brownies!

I didn't have the energy to take a picture of my own notebook!
