I am having so much fun reading the comments on my 50 Followers! A Giveaway! post. Every time I get an email that says "New comment on your post," I squeal. Just like a girl.

As the lottery folk say, you can't win if you don't play. And if I can't find you, and you DO win, -- well, I can't find you.
