The mystical orbs were right


well, thank you all for voting in the pumpkin contest. The real contest winner was #1. which, I’m ashamed to say, was Pam’s. 2nd prize went to number 2. third prize was number 8.
Mine was #7 and didn’t even place.

My heart sinks because I don’t feel it was a true showing of skill on behalf of the stencil users.
two analogies of the stencil using jerks folks:
1. submitting a handwritten copy of Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein into a “write a short story” contest
2.bringing in Oreos to a cookie contest

so there you have it. You can keep your winnings you stencil using cheaters people. Make sure to save some of it to buy your stencils for next years contest. We wouldn’t want you to have to be creative.

In other news:
I saw the movie Ray last night. It was extremely good. I’m not usually very emotional during movies but I broke down like a 6 year old girlscout at numerous times during the film. I found it extremely powerful. I think it was probably the combination of the extremely good music and the excellent acting skills on behalf of Jamie Foxx and the other actors. mike d gives RAY 4 stars.

    First, I agree, stencils are fab but not authentic. They should pay you to enter the contest, then if you lost, at least you’d have money.

    Second, Why do you associate breaking down with girl scouts? Girl scouts by definition are not more emotional than anyone else. If you left it at girl, I’d be irked, but would agree that it’s more socially acceptable for women to express emotion than men; but a girl scout? Girl scouts is an organization that is supposed to teach leadership skills and community service, if anything they should cry less than your average child.

    Love and glitter,

    #7 is very good, I thought it was one of the stenciled ones. My mind was BLOWN when I found out it was your freehand!

    My sister was a girlscout, and she doesn’t lead anything/anybody, nor does she have a fondness for our community. So, go figure.

    I associate breaking down with girlscouts because when girls are in groups they encourage each other to ‘let it all out’ And what group of girls is more famous than the girl scouts? I think it’s a fair statement.

    And Stef, I am so happy that you have graced my website with your eyes. Three cheers for WPI grads.
