A Groovy Winner Has Been Chosen!!!!

I am overwhelmed by all the fun and creative entries in my Blogmania giveaway contest. I never realized before just how groovy laptops, hamsters (or "hampsters" as many of you spelled it), and toilet paper were. Thanks for playing along with me!

On Monday, I will post some of the more creative entries, but now -
On With Chosing the winner!

Mediocre Bloggers such as myself have NO CLUE where to find those nifty random number picker hooey things. And if we (I) had a clue, we'd still be stuck because we (I) wouldn't know how to USE it. Consequently, we (I) choose our (my) winners the old fashioned way:

First I typed out the numbers 1-221. (fun, fun, fun.)

Next I tediously cut all those numbers apart.

Into the hat they go!

Time for the impartial pickers to draw one number from the hat.

Wait a minute...Two pickers means TWO numbers!

I guess that means I have to pick the final winner.

Who will it be? THAT number, or THAT number?


Hmmm, if we turn them over and mix them up...Maybe....

YES! Groovy has chosen a number! Here it is!

Now came the fun part of pulling up all those blog comments and....you guessed it...COUNTING

Wanna help?

Oh Groovy - - - as usual, you do crack me up!!!

Those random-number generator thingies could NEVER have made as fun a post as this one!!!

I'm SO glad you didn't know how to find one, or we wouldn't have had the TREAT of seeing your face, in all it's array of fun-ness, hovering over those bongos (are they bongos?)

I didn't see about the give-away, so now that you mention TP and other things, I have to go see what in the WORLD kind of a give away it was!

Carla Gade said...

Yay to YaYa!

I use random.org like Marianne suggested, but it's also fun to have my hubby pick a name out of a basket for me. You had some sweet helpers!

This isn't an entry in the comp, I'm no good at that sort of thing... but I thought I'd tell you what my Granddaddy said to me about the pet he had as a kid.

I feed hams ter my pet sittin' on my lap, called Top. Whenever I thought to, i let him stay there as long as he liked. I had him since he were a wee little pap, er, rodent, and I watched him gro up right ovy there.

Sigh... he had a way of just breaking words down whenever he told a story.

Oh Bear, That was Fabulous! If I was choosing my winner based on skill and cleverness, your Granddaddy (My, that's alot of d's!) would have beaten Carole's clever entry and would have won by a landslide!
