I Won!!!


How cool is this - I entered a contest on the PiBoIdMo blog, and I won! The details of the contest are here:

The assignment was to fill in a response to Mr. Turtleneck's statement. I thought his comment was utterly smack-worthy, which led me to the cage-fighting reference. The cartoon was created by talented illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi. Debbie's work includes the fantastically funny "I'm Bored."

Thank you so much Tara and Debbie for the opportunity. You guys really put the jingle in my bells this Christmas.
