And Michelle, aka Fickleknitter shows off her geek cred…

You can find the rest of the captioned pictures in this nifty little Capshun Slide Show thingy. They’re totally worth the look.


And now the prize winners! No, that’s not a typo, that’s really pluralized. Yeah, I know I didn’t make my design submission deadline. That tends to happen when you think the deadline’s the 15th of the month, when in all actuality, it’s the 3rd. But still. I HAD OVER 60 ENTRIES!!!! Who can choose just one? So, to be fair, I chose one written caption, one pictured caption and one by sheer chance by consulting Ficklelottery (which basically chatting to Ficklehoar knitter in IM and saying “Hey, pick a number, will ya?). So without further ado…

Random Prize Winner

is Heidi, who sent in this little gem…

Oh haz great daz…last to haz the salmon mousse…first to haz the Salon mousse! I gotz me haz no respect! ~~Dogney Dangerfield

Written Caption Prize

goes to Anne-Marie of The Chicks with Sticks for…

Stoopid hooman. When SHE sleeps I pee on her toothbrush

Trust me, you really don’t wanna know, but yes, there’s a story, and obviously Anne-Marie pays attention the one time I told it on Plurk


Picture Caption Prize Winner

is Laurel aka OldBean of Old Bean Knits
Way to go!


So, Heidi, Anne-Marie & Laurel email me your snail mail addresses and your prizes of Trixie-selected Dizzy Blonde Studios yarn plus other little goodies will be winging its way to you, just as soon as I can get off my lazy ass and send it!


Thank you everyone for your entries! They all made me laugh, and that makes ME the ultimate winner. Cuz, you know, it’s all about me, right?
