I just have to share that I am so glad to have Monday behind me. It was anxiety-ridden, for nothing more than the fact that my workplace is in some serious transition.
So I headed out for Italian food with ExecutiveDirector. We shared horror stories and enjoyed a glass of wine with our very rich dinner. It was a nice way to unwind.
Then, of course, it was back home where I danced off some additional nervous energy before HippyChick called.
We deliberated seriously for a bit before settling on a winner for the little contest. Before I announce the winner, I do want to give props to HC for not only assisting in this process, but coming up with her own unique take on me. I've never been compared to Winona, even in this remote way, before. It's pretty amusing and I will be revisiting these characters in the future.
I have to admit that our process was somewhat limited as a few of the character and movie references were a bit more obscure than our pop-culture backgrounds were prepared for...particularly Mystic & P'tit Loup's references to D.H. Lawrence movies. Still, I feel like we sorted it out quite well in the end.
And the winner of the grand prize is Swiss Toni with his combination of Galadriel, the Oracle (I do bake cookies, by the way) and Amelie. Not only was this somewhat confirmed by P'tit Loup's comments in said posting, but when I was mentioning it to ExecutiveDirector this evening, she immediately jumped on that choice as well.
So, ST, your prize is the privilege of choosing a blog topic for me to take up this week. Drop me an e-mail or post it in the comments, and I will take up the topic as soon as I can.
I have a few blog-cleaning tasks to do now.
