4th place ROCKS!!

I just found out the results of the UIS Webposium today. I won a Special Merit award (along with one other person), which is honestly exactly where I wanted to be. Let me tell you why.

1st place won an 80 gb iPod, 2nd won a digital camera, and 3rd won a 4 gb iPod. I didn't want to win any of these categories because we already have an iPod and a digital camera.

So what did Special Merit people win? A portable DVD player--which is exactly what I was hoping for all along!

Yay!

Is it just me or did your mom just quote apollo 13.

Jennie Lynne said...

No, she definitely quoted Apollo 13!

Amy said...

What's funny is that she called me to get the quote right, and I googled my blog because I've used that quote in previous posts. =)

Congratulations. Amy. Now, if I had been in the contest, I would have been going for 2nd place. We have gone through 3 digital cameras (lost 2 and broke 1 in the past 2 years so I am pretty sure if our record holds we will be needing a new one in a few of months.

Oh - that was fun! I thoroughly enjoyed the little conversation that ensued regarding my comment! Wait, was it really MY comment, since it was a quote?

Amy said...

*Gasp!* You have a blog! I just realized that. Now you have to post.
