Marimekko Winner Revealed!

Hey y'all, thanks to everyone who stopped by to comment on my Marimekko tote giveaway. I put all the numbers in the little random number generator at random.org. Then I had a nagging thought. I said, "Hey Matt, did you say something about how the random number generators on the internet are not really random?" He said, "They're random as far as you know." And I was like, "Don't toy with me." And he went on to explain that they are "random enough, just not random enough for encryption." And there was more but isn't he hot when he talks like that? So, the random-enough result was number 10, which is Kate! Hurray, Kate! Email me your address at suburbanmatron at gmail.

I should clarify that this is not the Kate who is my sister-in-law, for those of you who are alert to the Suburban Matron family circle. That would be nepotism! Or, since nepotism technically, linguistically, means "favoritism towards nephews," I always have a hard time using that word when I'm talking about women. I know, dumb. So let's say it would be some kind of funky Nepotism For the Ladies. But it's not.

Thank you for playing! I feel like a real blogger and all when I do these! Look out, Pioneer Woman.

Yeah, cause you know I'd be mo pissed if you gave ANOTHER bag to Katie over me. I won't tell your readers about the Marc Jacobs incident, though. It can stay our little secret.

Now Amy, you know that the good Lord Laid It on My Heart to give her that.

So far he hasn't told me to give you anything, but I will keep checking.

Congrats to Kate!!

Wrong post- but bummer about the table. I was thinking you should do a sideways runner to cover it up until you can have it fixed.

Michele said...

Congrats Kate!

Good thing I ordered 4 for Christmas presents. Now, I can keep one for myself. Sorry Mom.

I NEVER win anything. Damn.

Actually, the word nepotism originally referred to favoritism from the Pope toward his "nephew", which was their euphemism for his natural son (naughty, naughty Pope).

Still sending healing vibes to your table.

Becky said...

Dang it, Gretchen! I was going to include that little bit of papal information in a footnote. And then I thought, "I'm footnoting my blogposts now?" But nice catch, smarty!

And thank you for the vibes. Every day I hope that it will have magically fixed itself.

Kate said...

I was going to be bummed -- I love merimekko -- until I saw Kate's gracious acceptance speech. And became extremely diverted by the origin of nepotism. So the pope's nephew was his son, eh? Who knew!

Sara said...

Sorry, but I have to use "lmao" because you and Amy are cracking me up.

What a weird and wonderful post. Is there not a word for female or general 'nepotism?' Amongst all the smarty pants here at S.M., surely it can be created, right?

Congrats Kate!

Speaking of Mark...He's making his first fall appearance at the W Hotel rooftop bar tonight, right where he should be. God knew what He was doing, Beck ;)
