Many congratulations to our Grand Prize winner, whose correct guess of "Firefly" pushed her over the top! (She was the only one to correctly guess this particular letter). So, congratulations, edda. Let me know what you would like Connor to draw for you, and your prize package (ooh yes! It's a prize package now; I found cool stuff to send, too) will be in the mail soon. I'd also like to give honorable mentions to princessrica, who correctly guessed 19, and to Nicola, with 18 correct guesses.

BUT WE'RE NOT DONE YET! You might have noticed that I called edda the "Grand Prize" winner, and that's because, in a last-minute decision, it turns out that EVERYONE who played is A WINNER! Connor decided this morning that he would like to draw something for each one of you who made guesses! (I'll be sending out individual messages to everyone who played with more details, and your total score).

So congratulations, and I especially want to say THANK YOU to everyone who played! This was fun, both for me and for Connor - and hopefully for you, too. Oh! And last, but not least, here is the list of the correct answers:

A - Aster
B - Bumblebee*
C - Caterpillar
D - Dragonfly
E - Earthworm
F - Firefly*
G - Gladiola
H - Hummingbird
I - Inchworm
J - Jay
K - Katydid
L - (skipped)
M - Moth
N - Newt
O - Orchid
P - Praying Mantis
Q - Quail
R - Rabbit
S - Snake
T - Tick
U - Unicorn
V - Venus Flytrap
W - Wasp
X - Xilian Mobile**
Y - Yellowthroat***
Z - Zinnia

So, thanks again for playing! Your prizes will be in the mail soon. :)

*FYI, anyone who guessed simply "bee" got credit; those who guessed "fly" instead of "firefly," did not.

** This one, unsurprisingly, stumped everyone. It's from this AWFUL Godzilla movie; if anyone had guessed this correctly, I would have been deeply concerned. :D

** Also stumped everyone, also not too surprising, as the yellowthroat is not a widely-known bird. Plus, Connor's kind of did look more like a plover. ;)

And I don't know what was on the tip of my tongue, but it wasn't yellowthroat. Ah, well.

Hi, Nicole!

Not sure if you'll come back and see this, but if you do . . . I tried to e-mail you, but the message came back as undeliverable. I'm going to post something in your blog, but if you see this, you can e-mail me at my LJ address. (Just my username at livejournal dot com).
