The Readers Have Spoken

16 Jul

Friday, July 16 at 12 noon PDST has come and gone, so it’s time to announce the winning tee as picked by Little Big readers! I’m three hours late in posting this not because I forgot, but because I am a withered old woman already at thirty years of age.

Last night my BFF and I attended a Purse Party. For those who don’t know, a Purse Party is basically the equivalent of a Tupperware party: someone hosts a party, invites all their friends, and a lady who sells purses brings all her wares for oohing and ahhing and the purchasing for $50.  In this case my Mother in Law was hosting it. Some facts about my MIL: 1. she is super fun 2. she is married to an awesome former chef 3. she knows a hell of a lot about wine.

Basically an invitation to a Purse Party at her house meant delicious appetizers cooked by my FIL plus a chance to drink some very expensive wine I’d otherwise never know about or be able to afford. Add my BFF to the occasion and pass the purses! I’m there with bells on.

The party did not disappoint, but the purses did. They were just not anywhere near my style–which is just as well. Tough times dictate we stick to a strict budget. We gave the purses a cursory glance for politeness’ sake before setting up camp on the couch with some very full wine glasses and a plate heaping with savory spinach pastry, baked brie with almonds and jalapeno jelly on baguette, and Mexican gazpacho shooters.

What followed was a couple hours’ worth of Mom Talk and the Sharing of Cute Kid Photos and I couldn’t have been happier. I rarely drink but last night I indulged by drinking the whole large glass of wine. It made me very, very sleepy. I went to bed early only to be woken up by Isobel an a raging hangover at 4 a.m. Excellent! It’s good to know I have the alcohol tolerance of an anemic kitten.

All of this is to say I’m three hours late in announcing the tee shirt choice winner due to the second hangover of my life. But I am proud to say that the Snorg tee I’ll be receiving is…

Greendale Human Beings!

Congratulations, me! Thanks again to Snorg and Windsor Grace at Knit in Public for making my Greendale dreams come true.
