And the Winner is...

Well, this was the hardest choice ever. Seriously. Then I got to thinking about the spirit of Interactive Wednesday and a solution slowly began to form in my mind. I really want EVERYBODY to enjoy Corner Gas and I really want people to enjoy the free giveaway.

So here's what I'm thinking. (Remember its the spirit of Interactive Wednesday. Aren't we all winners? I mean your comments were fantastic)

Miss Maverick gets the original free giveaway. She views it. She loves it. She shares with it with Firefly boy and she wins the "who's cooler" contest. Here's where we break the giveaway rules a little bit. Instead of keeping her free gift she brings it back to me (no stay with me for a minute) when we both participate in "The Mother of All Brains 2005 Conference". I then take it to GG during the yuletide season whilst I travel to the land where this all started. GG watches it and when I return she gives it back to me. I then mail it to Daring Young Mom.

Now Jess, Amanda and Teddo, fear not I have NOT left you out. You see the only reason we could have said contest was because Cster owns the actual full season one and season two dvd sets (those are really his) and we would love to have you over to enjoy our "well kept house" and marathon with Brent, Lacey and Hank all night long. Teddo you can pour the DCs. Amanda and Jess can bring the tasty refreshments (along with myself) and we will supply the coveted entertainment and blankets and pillows and couches.

I realize this is not what people expected when free giveaway started. A gift was promised. A gift you could keep. But, I think and feel that this is the ultimate best solution. Everybody would get to see it and what more could anyone ask for.

PS - Maverick, I'm sure you have DVDR capabilities what with your connections. Need I say more?

You are both generous and wise.

Everybody CAN be a winner! A most satisfactory conclusion.

Looking forward to my turn with Corner Gas will outweigh my anticipation for my photo session on Santa's lap!

I would like to make a small confessions...

I wrote this post last night as I knew that at precisely Noon today the Cster would be slaving away at a paper rendering our computer inoperable by me. When I wrote it milster had not yet put in her bid and I didn't have time to alter the post. So...milster...you get to see it too. I promise. Either as a part of MOABC or during the yuletide season.

You are such a mom. Thanks. Send it media mail. It's only $1.42

I have one small complaint. I won the contest last week and didn't get a thing. I don't mean to sound greedy, but I like free stuff.

I have to say that the rules of the Where is the Toothpaste clearly stated the winner would get a cyber high five. That being said you are more than welcome to join the festivies chez moi, drink of the dc, eat of the tasty treats, use the blankets and watch the covetous entertainment. See you there.

I am so glad that you can all share in what is becoming a Canadian ICON show. Humour (note spelling) is wonderful. Keeps us all in touch.

Wish we could join you all in the entertainment festival. Have fun!
