The Big Winnah

Well, I wrote out everyone's names (only once EJ, although that was wicked smaht) and put them into a hand thrown pottery bowl made by my own mother, and I happened to pick

Carrie Ann

who is quite possibly my oldest and dearest friend. I almost feel guilty, but Jake kept me honest, I swear. No one has more integrity than that guy. Carrie is the person who made me start a blog--literally, she came and visited me and while she was here, she sat at my computer and created it for me and taught me how to post. She introduced me to Harry Connick Jr. and Les Mirables when I was 13 and said words like "lovely" and has the most interesting closet. She wore a hat and gloves to Brooke's wedding. When she found out that I was going to Stephenie Meyer's prom, she sent me a box full of fun dresses and antique jewelry. She's that kind of girl. She owns chickens and has named them after flowers. She is a creative soul. I love her. Just thought I'd tell you a bit about her.

That was fun! I'll definitely have another drawing (or as they say here in New England, "drahring") soon. Thanks for playing!

Carrie Ann Ocsarson!!!!! How fitting. Love that girl. She truely is one of the most creative people on the planet. It flows out of her into ALL areas of life, she can't stop it. There's too much creativity to contain. CAO- have you ever applied for a job for Martha Stewart? I'm being very serious. Or better yet, start your own company and put that old, cheating, stealing, power hungry, hag out of business...

Yay for Carrie! She's all that and a bag of chips!

Kara said...

Yeah, I'm so happy Carrie won! I can't imagine a more deserving person, I love her whole darn family. And one of your dearest friends, ah, such harmony (or as the people in East Asia would say, good joss)!

I suppose I'll keep reading even though I didn't win...I'll just swipe it from Carrie's the next time I am visiting. She is pretty cool.
