With the book, Mitch O'Connell, the World's Best Artist by Mitch O'Connell" hitting your local bookstore in a few weeks, it seems time to announce the winners of the world-wide competition, "I Give You Free Stuff
If you remember, I mailed out about 10,000 stickers to folks whose job it was to creatively place them anywhere they saw fit. At some point I would award gifts to the favorites.
THAT TIME IS NOW!
Now, this WAY too much responsibility for me, and I sure didn't want to be yelled at, so I passed the possible ulcer inducing job off on my go-to gal, Skittles. After all, who could ever get mad at a little fuzzy six and a half pound big-eyed kitty cat?
I whittled the selection down to the top ten. Those numbers were written individually on small squares of paper, while the corresponding master list of entries was hermitically sealing in a licked and taped envelope which was stored under my hat all week. The numbered squares were laid upside down on the floor while Kieran applied grade A honey to Skittles paws. As our furry housemate was lowered and released on the hardwood surface, a random assortment of three numbers scientifically stuck to her paws.
Unfortunately, our official labcoats were at the dry cleaners, but it still counts.
I now have in my hand the envelope and the sticky numbers.
Let me open it ... oh my ...this is amazing ...the WINNERS ARE...
Thanks to everyone who entered! You're ALL WINNERS!
Now go buy the book, damnit!
