And the Winner Is...

And the winner is..... soyandrue! When it came right down to it, the only way to judge was by which one struck me as the funniest - and this one makes me chuckle every time. So congratulations soyandrue, you have earned your own special place on my sidebar, where the world can appreciate you for being the fine limerick writer you are. I have no doubt that you are thrilled with this distinction. What an honor. Can someone pass the girl a tissue? I think she's overcome.

And here is that winning limerick, for those of you who haven't had a chance to read it yet:

So how did I get so addicted?
My fingers are really inflicted
Carpal Tunnel's no joke
My keyboard is ... broke
And my grammar is really restricted.

Again, I would like to thank everyone who entered my contest. I loved all of your entries, and plan on doing this again in the near future. This means soyandrue will have to defend her title - so practice those limericks!

P.S. Annie and Natalie both get awards for producing the most entries, and being the most supportive friends/sister EVER. Thanks girls!! (Hope you didn't think I meant some kind of actual award, it's more like a big mental "thank you" that will make you feel good inside. After all, I'd hate to promote materialism by giving anyone anything super cool - I'm really righteous like that).

Hope to see you all next time...

Next time can we do Haikus instead? A limerick was too much for my brain...and too rhymingy, yes rhymingy, no it is not a real word, but appropriate nonetheless. If you would like to use it in the future it means, to much rhyming gives me a headache, especially if I'm feeling ornery.

I'm so honored! I--I'm all a flutter! I'm in a daze! I've never been so excited to win something before in my life! I'm all 'feklempt'!

Ok, that makes me sound so pathetic, but there is no greater compliment than adding me to your sidebar. Thank you. No, really, thank you. It means so so much...okay, I'm stopping now before I dissolve into embarrassing tears.

And if you are going to do haikus next, give us plenty of warning. Haikus give me a headache!

Congrats soyandrue! I hope your carpal tunnels are okay.

I've decided one of my favorite new blog-things are comment acceptance speeches. That's two this week - soyandrue's and Kelly's (from Annie's naming contest) - that have totally cracked me up!

Jen, still loved your entry, hope you join us for the next rhyming challenge!

Oh, and Kristin - totally open to the idea of using a different kind of poem. But aren't Haikus hard? I'll have to look them up. Stay tuned...
