A big thanks to everyone that participated — my assistant felt really horrible about not being able to pick everybody — but I’m sure we’ll be doing this again so don’t give up the dream/keep hope alive/etc etc etc …you’re all the bestest. :D
And, just so nobody accuses Casa de Nerd of hinky prizegiving, here’s the documentation of the selection process: slips of paper with everybody’s name (pink for the blog comments and blue for the Google peeps) shaken well in a big ice bucket… which I then threw some pieces of dog food into. Because when a little zippy weirdo goes into a bucket for some food she’s eventually going to come out with something extra. In this case, Caitlyn’s name caught on her gums.
