    Thanks!  But this is definitely a case where I should be thanking you.  I found out about the contest only because you posted a last-minute story about it on this blog. In fact, if you look back at that post, you’ll find a comment from me under the name ‘Emma.’  I never would have heard about it had SBTB not been on the case.

    Anyway, this truly has been a momentous day: winning the contest, and (like the cherry on top) getting namechecked by DA *and* the Bitches.  I really need to brainstorm some new goals.  ;)
