Pseudonym Winner!

Thanks to so many people for sharing their clever and fun (and often funny) pseudonyms with me. As promised, I randomly selected a commenter to receive a 1-year free subscription to Writer’s Digest magazine. And the winner is …

AmyJ or, as you may know her one day, “Sidney Grisham,” named after her “favorite character (Sidney Carton of A Tale of Two Cities) and the last name of my favorite author (John Grisham).”

And, just to prove to Tim who suggested “butt-kissing” helps your odds of winning, here are some photos to show that I do draw these things at random (though “butt-kissing” is totally welcome and may be considered as a prerequisite in future contests):

Thanks again for playing. Go Reds (even if they were just officially eliminated from postseason contention)!

    I would like to point out that just because you show pictures of names in a cap doesn’t necessarily mean you didn’t take the time to dig through all the pieces of paper and pull out a name you wanted. ^_^

      Have faith, secular_christian, I think we can trust our esteemed online editor, Mr. Klems. He is a fine and upstanding WD citizen (with more free subscriptions to give away…I will refer you to: “though “butt-kissing” is totally welcome and may be considered as a prerequisite in future contests”)

      I’ve been accused of a lot of things–having a big head, lousy softball play, having “dumb” taste buds for preferring Pepsi over Coke–but I’ve never been accused of “pulling the name I wanted” from my mini-Reds helmet. I kind of like the controversy, no matter how silly it is. 😉

      Thanks for the laugh,

    That is so awesome that the drawing is completely random. It’s really great to know that you’re an honest person and take these things seriously. I really look forward to reading more of your posts and learning from your infinite wisdom!

    …too much? 🙂
