The Winners of the 2006 Holiday, Yeah, We Said Holiday, Bill O'Reilly, What Are You Gonna Do About It? Bake-Off have been announced!
Like Res said...
Cardinal Blue Girl dumps a box of hanging chads on the fire, and a puff of smoke rises from the chimney. A new Cookie Pope has been chosen!!!
The Grand Prize Winner is Jennifer of Saying Yes...
Not only does Jennifer receive a $50 gift certificate to amazon.com and my famous, tacky corn guy, but she also inherits My Thrown.
I don't want to give up My Thrown. I like My Thrown. It fits me perfectly. I'm keeping my tiara.
Jennifer, let's make a deal. How about this? I can keep My Thrown if I give you this.
That's a good deal, don't you think? You don't? Off with your head!
Oh shoot. All the beheaders belong to Jennifer now. I can't even have anyone beheaded anymore.
Jennifer was gifted with much creativity and talent. Her bakery was
artwork and my whole family was amazed by her. Everything she sent not
only looked beautiful and was packaged in a beautiful way, but
everything was absolutely delicious. Can’t say enough how
wonderful everything was. I have to confess that I did eat one of her
painted sugar cookies. The one with the penguin. Truly yummy. I made
myself eat one, but I saved all the others. For what? I'm not sure. They were gorgeous.
Second Place went to Adorable Girlfriend and The Uncanny Canadian. They had a mint cookie to die for. I would behead myself if I could get my hands on more of those babies. They also had these awesome ones with this super scrumdillyicious filling. The filling Res wanted to smear on somebody and lick off. He wasn't kidding. Those things were truly edible. They also sent a sweet holiday card and a great CD of wanker music. I’ve pretty much been playing it non-stop, cuz I’m sort of obsessive about music I like. I know that’s a huge surprise to everyone.
Third Place went to Pinko Punko and his lovely wife, Geenie Cola. Oh, PP. Please do not despair. For as much as I razzed you, you truly dropped a bomb on me. I just want you to know how great everything was. And hot. And beautiful. And hot. And stupendous. And hot. You do write your “7s” in a weird way. Whatever. And my box was tiny. Again, whatever. They were deliciousamundo. Plus, YOU won the photography category. Hey! That's something! Although my son did call you a Wanker, that was just said in Wankerish kind of fun. It was not Serious Pants Wankerishness at all. PP, you know I love you. And you know I think you are a lively dancer. Nobody outgrooves you. And they never will!
We had two Runner's Up. TLB, Brando's better half and Shayera.
TLB, I got the biggest kick out of your package when I picked it up at the post office. I love a good laugh and I got one! Totally cracked me up. Even though your cookies were in nine gazillion pieces when they arrived, I just poured each bag in a bowl and ate them with a spoon. Your chocolate chip cookies were awesome and your orangy ones were delicious, too.
Shayera, your snickerdoodly cookies were teh yummy. The Skimmer really appreciated your package cuz you sent 10,000 of them. Your big old container pretty much sat by the coffee maker for a solid week. Coffee and snickerdoodlys constantly. They were delicious! AND -- You win FIRST PRIZE in the packing peanuts category. You used the cutest packing peanuts known to man. Congrats on that!
To everyone who baked: Thank you so much — From me, The Retiring Queen of The Thrown -- Sniffle -- and from my entire family.
You guys are the best. If I could’ve given you all perfect scores, I would’ve. I'm serious. I don't like judging people. Except for PP, of course. Wanker.
THANKS AGAIN. You all made the holidays more special. You’re really a special group of people.
