Speechless, Overjoyed & Down Right Happy!

This morning when I was checking my mail and saw that I received a message on My Blog Log from Marzie asking me to head over to her blog asap, the first thoughts that ran through my mind was ...

'Oh no, she tagged me again!'

She just loves tagging me with all those super easy memes (and you'd better keep them super easy, k ... LOL!) cos she knows that if she tags me with those that require brain power I'm going to take ages to do them ... hehehe ...

So there I went and checked out her blog to see just what kind of meme she cooked up for me this time and I was shocked beyond disbelieve! There was a post from her saying that I had won (yes, I actually won something!) the Mariuca Halloween Mug contest that coincided with her 100th post.


I seriously couldn't believe what I was reading. I sat there for a whole minute, re-read her post at least three times just to be sure that it was my name she mentioned as a winner (didn't want to look like a fool if it wasn't). So after checking my identification card to make sure Nick Phillips was really my name, I was finally able to shout for joy ... woohoo!

Marzie, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for selecting me from all those other many excellent entries you received for your Halloween contest and I'm truly honoured to win. I never expected to win with that half-baked exorcism entry I submitted but I'm glad I won anyway :) I'd like to share this mug with all of you as well. I'll remember you guys everytime I take a sip from this mug ... LOL!

Blogging does have its rewards after all :D
