I Didn't Win....But, It's Good To Be Me!

Claudia over at cook eat FRET just had her drawing for the Nashville Scene's Iron Fork.


I didn't win.

I've been fortunate lately. A trip to South America from my mother. I won Tango Lessons last week. Great friends that take me to the CMT Awards. The world's best girlfriend who loves me even though I can be a hormonal raging ass. (Trust me. It's so bad even *I* am starting to notice. I got me some of those pills now, so I'm feeling better.)

This afternoon, I received an email from Claudia, the Hottest Blonde in Nashville that said:

"you win the contest too! but not really - but you get to go anyway - really!
just because you're YOU"

How does she know I'm me? I dunno. But I'm glad that she does.

You know how you "meet" someone online and you just think that they're the cat's meow?

I immediately thought so of Claudia. I commented on her blog and she wrote me back. Offered help with cooking/recipe stuff. Just sweet.
I can't wait to meet her. She seems so genuine.

It looks as though lately, I'm the Lucky Bitch. Which reminds me, I need to go to the post office.

Had to DELETE that first comment due to a glaring grammar issue ...

I even ran to Claudia's blog this afternoon to see if you'd WON and *pouted* when I discovered you hadn't. But now I feel better because even though you didn't win, you get to go!! Just think of me when you sample the goodies from Agave Tequila Lounge *wink*

I just finished wishing you luck! Oh well, everything else seems just peachy!

Dana: Thanks for pouting for me...that just may have turned the tides for me!

Tai: Thanks for the luck! Yep, it sure is!

With regard to the little help you get. I called my Dr. many years back, when I didn't even recognize myself. I'm like there has got to be help out there and there is. I haven't needed them for years but I sure am glad they were there when I did need them.

Ugh, I WISH. I just checked out the site, looks like a ton of fun for foodies like us. There needs to be something like that near me damn it! ;)

Em said...

Oh how fun that you'll get to meet her!

That is gonna be one wickedly fun event - sorry you didn't win, but glad you're going.

Congrats on not really winning the contest. Cheers!!

Sometimes losing to win is the best way....

Diva said...

It sounds like the culinary event of the year and just think... you didn't win, but the folks at the center are!

Fortune Cookies said...

sorry you didn't win,but sounds like you're winning in everything else :)

Logophile said...

It's good to feel like the queen, innit?
I love the winning, I need to do more of that. I don't like the cooking though so I better compete for the Plastic Fork Award, for ordering the best takeout.

How fabulous that you get to go even if you didn't win. I love it when that happens!

It's true about clouds, they do have silver linings.

Hey! So does that mean you don't need my tickets? I haven't asked Chelle about them, yet.

I realized the other day that even if it wasn't Anna's b'day, I have a big mean ol' final that night at 5:00. Dammit. I SO can't wait to be done with school.
