I am incredulous. Thankful, grateful, agradecida, humbled, thrilled, gracious (I hope).
Thanks to the many, many of you who have visited the blog, pimped the blog to your friends, spraypainted the URL on buildings along the Pacific Coast Highway (kidding, I think, I haven’t been on the west coast of the United States in at least seven years).
For what it’s worth, we still have to wait for the judges’ vote. Hi judges! Look at my tiny, untechfancy blog! Look at how cute, how humble, how “anyone (with logophilia and a spinny brain) can do it” it is. No fancy logo, no pretty layout. Just content, pure content.
Yeah, so when it’s all over, I’m going to get on that. You know, the pretty. For now you’ll just have to live with it the way it is. I’m also going to buy a tiara. You know, to better rule my kingdom.
I’ll be accepting congratulations in the form of feta cheese, which is almost completely unavailable in Chile (I have seen it twice), and which, if you get caught bringing it in, will cost you $200 and a lecture. I don’t want to count my chickens (because we’re still waiting for the judges’ vote, hi judges!), but maybe the Lonely Planet prize is a sheep. They have lots of sheep in Australia. What would it cost to ship one here? I understand they can swim. Oh, and please make it a ewe, you know, for the milk.
Thanks again. /fans self and faints.
