Well...it's time to announce the huge blog candy winner and the four runners up. First, I'd like to thank everyone who work so hard to help me out and make this happen. Second, I'd like to thank all of you who decided to stick around and follow my blog. I promise to try and keep it interesting! Third, let me explain my process:
I copied and pasted all the comments into a word document. I then went through all the comments and eliminated any duplicates or ones just commenting and not playing along. Second, I verified what everyone said they did. I added in extra comment spaces for those persons that did the other things I listed in my post to get additonal entries into the drawing. I then numbered all the entries. There ended up being 187 (with all the extra entries). This I put into the random number generator at random.org. I generated five numbers: one grand prize, four runners up. Here are the results:

Each integer should have a value between 1 and 187 (both inclusive; limits ±1,000,000,000).

Congrats ladies! Please email me your mailing address as soon as possible. If, in the event, I don't get a response from a winner I've picked within four days of this announcement (that would be midnight February 9, 2010). I will randomly draw another entry.
