This is how I determined the weiner!
Because I am still not feeling well (the newest diagnosis is bronchitis), I knew I would not be able to attach bread to clothespins for our family dog to hunt down like last time. It would have to be something I could do remaining pretty motionless. First, I enlisted the help of Impartial Judge #1.
As you can see, the reception in my apartment is terrible, my phone was near death, and I did not explain the random word generator or the contest very well at all.
Then Mom didn't understand (she didn't know about the Starbucks gift card prize).
But we love her anyway!
Then I took the names of the participants and typed them into this shmancy list generator:
Randomized it 6 times, per Mom's orders (you can see in the screenshot below.) And the winner, name number 9, iiiiiiiiiis...
I will email you your Starubucks eGift card shortly :)
(I almost typed "shorty," which would have been funny.)
Thanks to everyone for playing! It was fun for me to have something to occupy my time while sitting here being weak and coughy and lame.
