cries for a few hours takes a few moments to feel sorry for herself and the children of Whatcom County celebrate and congratulate the fortunate winner of the latest Allegra Doodle.
I’m so sorry for my win–I mean, your loss, Laurel!
If you drink enough coffee, it kind of looks like a salamander . . . a really fuzzy salamander . . . 😀
You are a kind and generous champion, Sarah! We all win, because we all get to see the gnome. It’s pretty awesome. Enjoy! You have an awesome blog, by the way!
Sorry you didn’t win Laurel. If I could draw I would draw you a salamander!
You are very kind, Yvonne! I have to admit that every time I look at the gnome I just start smiling. Woe is me, but the gnome is pretty awesome!
Golly gosh what a handsome gnome, Sarah! The darling child poets of Whatcom County congratulate you, dear artist. Next time maybe we can shoot for a hamster. 😀
Oh dear, I’m still trying to come up with words that rhyme with salamander. I’m not sure I can deal poetically with another critter at this juncture in my incredibly slow development as a poet!
My condolences. But I want to congratulate you on being one of the cutest little kids in the world. Adorable photo!
You are so kind! How could I be sad anymore after that sweet note. Okay, happy again! XO
Something about the tenacity of a bulldog…..
As in not known for brains? I feel like this is going to end gracelessly on my part.
You’re actually a sweet mixed breed. The tenacity of a bulldog, the agility of a border collie, the good nature of a golden retriever…do you want me to go on? 😀
Yes, please go on! Since having my rejection rate tripled this week, I could use some building up, LOL. You are too sweet. Thanks for the good words, my friend!
I’m so glad to see that you have gotten over your disappointment.
I’ll just raise my head long enough from my totally soaked-through pillow to say, that I’m . . . it’s just that . . . and then . . . and a salamander. Sob.
Laurel, I’m was interested to read that you’ve been brought to tears (of joy) over the Allegra Doodle event. While I concur that the Caffeine Gnome is glorious and quite fun, I wonder if a salamander would be even more interesting and eye-catching?
Alicia, I love you, but there is no joy in parentheticals. That dang gnome is glorious and fun and practically viral in the blogsphere. I do agree that a salamander would be awesome-o. There has to be more ways to spell ppppllllleeeeaaassseee.
