And the Winner Is….Where is that darned envelope?

Sorry  – I’ve been pretty busy trying to catch up from the luxurious vacation last week – where I took 2 days off from work and will spend 2 weeks trying to straighten out the messes created by those trying to be “helpful” in my absence.  In addition, I forgot to put an end date on the voting poll and couldn’t edit it – so had to remove it from the post so that people wouldn’t continue to vote long after I am dead and gone.  So much to learn!  So little remembered from one competition to the next!

Dave, from 1pointsperspective was the big winner in the Sloth round of the Deadly Sins competition.  Make sure you get over there and check out his great illustration that accompanies his entry – “The One Thumbed Sloth“.

Once again, a $40 donation to the charity of Dave’s choice will be made in his honor.  Lenore Diane also will make a donation to one of three organizations selected by her.  So Dave, if you’ve always wanted to donate to “Save the Sloths” – here is your big chance!

Congratulations, Dave!

  1. Well done, Dave, in the lazies sort of way.

  2. Way to go, Dave!! It was a great piece!

  3. Woops! He did it again…(insert video of me wearing my plaid mini skirt and white knee-higs, sucking on a finger in my best Britney-as-porno-schoolgirl imitation).

  4. Yay Dave!! Well deserved – congrats! I hope somebody saves THAT sloth. He’s adorable.

  5. Thanks everyone, especially my fellow sloth writers and of course Katy for doing the hard part! I had already written a similarly smarmy acceptance speech and posted it early this morning, but it disappeared.

    I think I speak for most of us when I tell you that I’m really looking forward to the lust chapter. Put those kids to bed, pour a little glass of Malbec (or Merlot if you prefer) and slip into something comfortable – can’t wait to read what comes next.

    Thanks again!

  6. Enjoyed every slothful word of it, Dave, Congrats to you.! hope the next sinful trait won’t keep you up too late…..being lustful….

  7. Woo – Hoo to Dave. It was a GREAT entry and a well deserved win. Looking forward to what else will come from your quill. MMmmmm ,,,,LUST ….!!!!???? Could get a bit saucey.
    Keep up with work, Kate. This has been fun and challenging.
    Congrats … again, Dave.

    • Isadora – your entry made a very strong showing, as well. Lust might just be a bit saucy, indeed. The research might just prove exhausting…

  8. Reblogged this on Inside the Mind of Isadora and commented:
    Here is the winning story from the “Sloth” category of “The Seven Deadly Sins”. Now, it’s on to the next one “Lust”. Anyone interested in particpating in the next one can pop on ove to and check out the details.
    Congratulations to Dave on a job well done.

  9. Katy, thanks for puttin’ on this puttin’ on. You do such a great job with it. I just went over and checked out Dave’s blog and post on his Sloth story: Great, and he draws, too??!! What’s next, song and dance to accompany posts?? hehehe

  10. Great job to one and all! I hear lust is our next deadly sin? What a way to go! 😉
