2 is Better than 1, and 4 is Better than 2.

You all know that I love a good contest, right?  Of course you do!

Well, I was in the mood to play a game on the 24th, while making my spreadsheets for this month's (and next month's) Quince Quote competition.  SO I posed the question:  "How many TOTAL entries will I have with both months combined?"

The prize would be another favorite Christmas movie of mine. 

Several of you placed your bets, and while nobody got the answer exactly right, I decided to give it to the person who came closest without going over. 

The answer, was 238! 

The winner, with a guess of 201, was SARAH CARDELL!!!  Congratulations! 

So, what does she win?

Make sure to "like" me on Facebook, so you can have a chance to win an impromptu prize too!

Now, onto the answers for the month(s)

First:  November.

The Movie:
Character:  Jack Calahan
Actor:  Bill Pullman
Line Before:  "Ugh!  I don't want any flowers from you, I'm not wearing black underwear, and I definitely do not want to move in with you, Joe...Jack!"
Line After:  "I thought you were Joe Jr."

Alternate lines:  "So he's a charming man, very classy..."  "Who just stepped in doggy poopy."

Once all the entries were put into my trusty spreadsheet, they looked like this:

And the winner is: 
Which means that EVELYN is the winner!  Congratulations!

Now, since Evelyn has already won Quince Quote, (in fact, she JUST won it in September) this means that the prize PACKAGE is still up for grabs. 
Let's move on to December, shall we?

The DECEMBER movie was...

Of course!

Character:  Mr. Parker
Actor:  Darren McGavin
Line after:  "Uh, I think that says FRAGILE, dear."

Alternate lines:  "I can't put my arms down!"  (I cannot believe that NOBODY gave this line.  I use it all the time!)
"You used up all the glue, on purpose!"

Again, I put this in my trusty spreadsheet, and when I did, it looked like this...

(Again, click it to make it bigger, if you can't see...)

Random.org did my dirty work, and crowned:
Which means that EMMY won the package!  CONGRATULATIONS!

But, Emmy included a disclaimer.  She already had BOTH movies, and was only in it to win the bowl, and other goodies, so I opted to pick one more winner, to receive JUST THE MOVIE.  Winning the movie only would NOT disqualify the winner from later winning the prize package, so no worries. 

I set random.org to work again, and the winner of the MOVIE is:

HEATHER! 

Congratulations to all my winners again!  I think I have all of your addresses, so just keep an eye out for your packages in the mail within the next couple of weeks.  If you don't already "like" me on Facebook, DO IT NOW!  You never know when I'm going to feel the winds of generosity a' blowin'!  PLUS, I'm going to post what I get in my 12 days of Christmas swap package EVERY DAY over there.  You're not going to want to miss that!
Regular Quince Quote will resume in January.  It's gonna be a good one...

Oh, Yay! That was a lucky guess! And, I love that movie! I just asked my husband the other day if we had it and he said yes, but when we checked, he was wrong. So, another lucky stroke!
