Holiday Winner

Oh these comments were so much fun to read. The request to win the giveaway was to leave a comment about love. A quote, an unbearable experience, your heart pounding expression of joy ;) or some simple little ditty. 

And, you deliciously diverse stars of the universe wrote quotes from 19th century Romanian poetry to personal stories that made me laugh outloud. 

Well, I haven't yet learned how to use a random number generator to select a winner so I am still using the primitive method of names on slips of paper shaken about in a shoebox. And this is what I've randomly selected:

Jen, fellow gemini, adorable cosmetician, new blog friend and giveaway winner! Here was her comment on love

Jen said...

Cute contest, heres mine!

Don't fall in love with me yet
We only recently met
True I'm in love with you but
you might decide I'm a nut
Give me a week or two to
go absolutely cuckoo
then, when you see your error,
then, you can flee in terror
like everybody else does
I only tell you this cause
I'm easy to get rid of
but not if you fall in love
Know now that I'm on the make
and if you make a mistake
my heart will certainly break
I'll have to jump in a lake
and all my friends will blame you
There's no telling what they'll do
It's only fair to tell you
I'm absolutely cuckoo
