Nope. I’m a loser. Sigh. Well, except for a “side pot” which was a CD of Anna Karenina … but I feel a tad guilty about that one since it’s from my very own Opera San José. So oh well. I’m no operaplot queen, as it turns out. Who knew? 😉

Will I do it again next year?

Oh probably. Right now I feel as if I’ve used up all my little ideas, and I know they aren’t quite as clever as the winners’ were, but I continue to wish and dream and all that jazz. Besides, it was just too darn fun!

Wanna see who did win? Here are the deserving winners. Congratulations to all of you!

Thanks, Marcia Adair, for putting this thing together again. It was a great diversion from reed making, to be sure. 🙂

  2. I can’t think of a more graceful acknowledgment of defeat in a very tight contest.

    Personally, I thought several of your entries were better than the winners, but then I wasn’t judging…

    Film clip from the Family Archives I expect…

  3. Heh … maybe you liked mine better because we’re friends? Could it be?! 🙂

    But thanks!

    It really was a ton ‘o fun to do. And I didn’t do it for the prize. Honest! I probably did it mainly because I like to hear my own voice (or see my own words, in this case). I’m sort of narcissistic that way. Go figure!

    Of course if I HAD won a trip to Ireland woulda been kind of cool. But scheduling something like that in less than a month’s time might have also been impossible. I wonder.
