Thank You For Not Being European

This may have been the hardest decision we’ve ever had to make. First off, obvs Hot Darcy Action Figure can and will not pass without notice (though we have deliberated long and deliberately on Darcy love and, despite the popular vote, currently love…love…LOVE Macfadyen). Still, that debate was a late-breaking addition to the book-snagging and occasioned by our quick-beating heart, not our decidery core. We must now turn ourselves to the assortment of linear worms, which, upon the contest’s close, immediately posed the following dilemma—what, exactly, were we in fact motherfucking judging? After much more decidery decideration, we finally settled on the following criterion: the worm that burrowed into OUR ear would be the worm that won.

“Online Gambling” came in strong with “Oh! you are a great deal too apt, you know, to like people in general. You never see a fault in anybody”. Next came the Cinetrix’s “N-T. Big difference,” followed by “Bil bol, wil wol”, followed by…you know what? ALL of them were good. But only one was ringing in our ear as we tramped up and down the staircase, sweaty, smelly and cardboard-toting:

Utah! Get me two!

Hence, our winners are:

1. Elizabeth, a.k.a. Bluepoppy, for the aforementioned, and*;
2. Melanie, a.k.a. nothing as far as we know, for the aforelinked.

Since we actually received ANOTHER set of Penguin books last week, both fab gals will win a random bunch, as well as an A Public Space tote and journal and various other works of wit and wisdom.

Melanie, Elizabeth, lend us your (lin)ears! Ha! Ha! We mean your addresses, so we can get these books the hell out of our car!

All of the Man of My Dreams winners will also receive their books now, too.

* We know. It may seem worrisome to choose a party who has previously interviewed the Hag. We would like to assure you that we have already generously compensated Ms. Poppy for that.
