Many of you asked, begged, or sang snippets of the theme song to me in hopes of snagging a a free SpongeBob DVD, and as usual I used my heart of stone and a random number generator to determine our lucky winner.

Today’s winner is commenter 136, Jackie! Congratulations, Jackie—please check your email! (Jackie won just in the nick of time, too, because yesterday I discovered my son slinking out of my office with the DVD in hand, ready to unwrap it. “Oh, I thought this was mine,” he said. The hoodlum.)

Many thanks to all who played, and special thanks to our pals at Nickelodeon and their helper elves at Special Ops for donating the DVD.

Unrelated to this contest, I have a quick update on the chocolate giveaway I posted before Christmas: My contacts tell me there was a slight delay in shipping (um, yes, we noticed), but all of you who filled out the survey before it closed really, truly, pinky-swearsies are going to get your chocolate soon. Or I will go beat up some people. Well, I’d definitely send a very stern email, anyway. Thanks for your patience!


  1. Free chocolate is *always* welcome, whenever it arrives!

  2. I’m with MomCat on this one, although by Valentine’s Day would be, ahem, SWEET!

  3. Wherever, whenenver. I can’t wait!

  4. Woo-hoo! I’d TOTALLY FORGOTTEN about that chocolate (blame it on the I’m-only-8-days-before-my-due-date pg hormones).

    Remembering the FREE chocolate just made my day. Thanks, Mir!

  5. Heh, I’d just assumed some evil postal person was stealing my free samples again!
