Last Contest’s Winner: Ms. Janet. And now for a nice little blog shout out. We used to take diet coke breaks together. Then she moved on to bigger and better at another company and I stopped drinking diet coke every day. Now, we live around the corner from each other so when she has nice smelling lavender all grown in her little garden, I’ll wander on over for an aromatic visit. Super.

Last Contest’s Winner: Well, folks, this one was a tough choice. So I printed off the picture with the three captions typed up below and went around work asking people to vote on their favorite. It was a close race, neck and neck the entire time but one person just barely pulled away when I asked one last software tester to vote. Congratulations, Janet. Perhaps somehow, people knew they were voting for a former coworker. Or perhaps they liked that you made fun of the poor newlyweds in their efforts to organize their lives together. Well done.

Last Contest’s Winner: Janet, no contest. I mean, really, who else included a video of a stupid blonde girl who can’t pass a driver’s test in their caption contest entry? Janet was probably one of those students who went above and beyond and would hand in assignments that were nicely bound with covers and color pictures throughout. Way to go Janet.

Also, Janet has eye plugs. Because of her, I have them now, too, and they’re the bestest. Happy eyes for Larrie thanks to Janet.

Last Contest’s Winner: This one sort of needs an explanation because in a way, there are three winners. I know, I’m like that stupid parent that says, “Everybody wins!” to the little kids playing soccer even though all the kids know that one of the teams scored way more goals than the other, but they’re trying to “be fair.” I have my reasons.

Okay, first winner: totally Kaakun. Basically, I was laughing at the image of Bond standing around confused about where he parked. I mean, come on… how many Aston Martins are there that you can’t find yours? Ha, talking about stalling the action movie for that plot impediment.

That leads me to another winner because I’m pretty sure that Kaakun couldn’t have come up with his idea if Janet hadn’t started the Bond reference. Good work, Janet.

And last, I laughed even more at Emily’s comment because she misspelled cars. Hahahahahaha!

Here are my blog nods about them.

Kaakun: thank you for still being my friend after I was so stupid as to spell your name wrong forever ago on the outside of your apartment window. It would have been so sad to ruin that friendship before your incredible movie making skills for my ice skating final.

Janet: I saw a “saabaru” in the parking lot today and totally thought of you even though I know Mike now has his used-to-be-dorky-now-is-cool Element. Back in the good ol’ days, I could always talk cars with you and you always knew more than me. Delightful.

Emily: I will always bow to your incredible piano skills. Always. If I could only have a fraction of the talent you have in your pinky, I would truly be blessed. And that pinky can also make some absolutely DELICIOUS meals!

The end.

Last Contest’s Winner: Is Meredith, Janet, Braden and Lindsey, woot woot! Is that just dumb to say it was everybody? I just felt like giving the reasons why I liked each caption. Can you deal with that? Too bad. It’s my blog. Deal with it. Mom cracked me up with the idea that you could buy two Sarahs. I like being greedy. Janet apparently wanted to return the one Sarah. Or at least have the opportunity to if the size didn’t fit. Sounded like she’d be a good candidate to adopt a Russian. And then there was Braden who cleverly referenced Mary Poppins and her bag hopping tendencies. Of course that would have started in her childhood. And last, Lindsey presented a situation where a little toddler was calling for a cab. Ha! Good one.

Last Contest’s Winner: Is Janet because her lolcat caption was just too clever. High five Janet. Look, I made the pic into a lolcat pic because I’m that cool (and by cool, yes, I mean geeky):
