Kick This Ass for a Man

"I've got no timing, I've got no timing.  I've got NO timing. You know what I want you to do? Will you do something for me? Do me a favor, just kick my ass, okay? Kick this ass for a man, that’s all. Kick my ass. Enjoy!"                                 — Artie Fufkin (Paul Shaffer) in This is Spinal Tap

So my husband says to me last night that, although he liked yesterday's blog, he was confused by the timing of it. He pointed out that, on Monday, I wrote a blog inviting people to participate in a contest to win a copy of Richard Dawkins’ new book. Then, on Thursday, I announced a winner — but not to the contest.

Hmmm. Yeah. Dammit. He’s got a point there.

So here I am, cleaning up my mess by announcing the winners to the 10 Commandments Contest. Since I’ve got three copies of The Magic of Reality: How We Know What's Really True to give away, I’m awarding them to the three people whose ideas I’m most likely to steal when I run the series in November.

Congratulations, Katie, Jen and Karen!

Now, if you’ll kindly stop kicking my ass, I can get back to work.
