6th Centenary Giveaway: The Winner

Finally, here's the winner of my "6th Centenary Giveaway" Quiz!

Roshmi and Abhiroop tied for the first place, with just one incorrect answer each. In fact, both of them got the same answer wrong... the "trick question" regarding me being a morning person!

So anyway, I said I'd do a lucky draw in case of a tie. So that's what I did. Five chits with Roshmi's name, and five with OB's. (It was no fun with just 2 chits in the box!) Shook them up, and then pulled one chit out.



Guess who it was?

Well alright then... it was OB!

Yeah man! You have some luck! After a long month of mental harassment, and all your attempts at flattery, cheating, gallantry and a dozen other tactics that I'm unable to describe in words... not to forget that post you were supposed to send, but didn't because you slept the day off... you STILL managed to win this giveaway!

Yes, yes... go on... do your "victory dance"! Maybe I'll switch my phone off for a few days, to give you time to cool down! But once you've got your head back on, please email me your postal address, so that I can send you the painting!

Shilpa and Roshmi... I love you both for participating in my 600th blog post celebrations. And to show my appreciation, I will send something to you both as well. But, not right away. I only just got this idea last night... so I'll need some time to gather the supplies and make your gifts. A couple of weeks probably? :D
