It's Not Whether You Win or Lose...

I am so off today, you guys. I have been really sidetracked, and totally spaced when 12:00 came and went, and completely forgot to post who the winner of my very first giveaway is.
But I'll get to that in a minute. First, I have meant to blog about my own good luck, and how I feel like I won the lottery. On Saturday, I received my assigned partner for the Spring Swap, and I am ECSTATIC!!! Who did I get? MAMARAZZI!!! I know, I know, take a minute to get all your envy under control. I am so excited! For those of you who don't know... (where have you BEEN?) Mamarazzi is the totally awesome chick over at Dandelion Wishes, who hosts all kinds of swaps throughout the year. In fact, participating in her last "favorite things" swap is what inspired ShortMama to host one of her own. Now, it will be a while until I will qualify to participate in one of hers, so I am over the moon excited that I get to know her better, and swap with her this time around. Come January, I'm all over her swaps, like flies on rotting garbage...
or honey. I guess honey sounds more complimentary, huh? Now, what do I love about spring...?

Okay, enough already! For the 3 of you on the edges of your seats, waiting anxiously for me to announce the winner, your wait is almost over.

I did want to tell CJ that she got an extra entry because her quote made me laugh. Not just the quote, but it reminded me of another funny part in the movie, that is also among my favorite moments. I also must reveal the answers to the questions. So...

The Movie:

Character who spoke the quote: Anna Scott

Actor/Actress who played the character: Julia Roberts

Line delivered directly before: "With a goat, playing a violin" said by William Thacker (Hugh Grant)

Other noteworthy lines: "There's something wrong with this yogurt" (Said by Spike) "It's not yogurt, it's mayonaise" (Said by William) "Ah, right-o then" (Said by Spike)

"Big feet, large shoes" (Said by Anna)

Okay, so now, there were 16 comments, when you add one for CJ making me laugh. According to the number generater, the winning comment number was...9.

Which means that HEATHER is the winner of the grand prize! Congratulations. Send me an email with your address, and I will get your goodies out to you ASAP.

Thanks to all who entered! You guys rock!
