Winners of my Birthday Drawing

Guess what?  Last night was my 6 month birthday dinner and I announced the winners of my birthday drawing during dessert.  Because it was a special occasion, I got to sit at the head of the table (for a few minutes) and I tried really hard to be still and behave myself.  It was considered a grand success because I didn't break the Tiffany candlesticks or taste any of the antique hemstitch linens.  To start we had Kir Royales in very very tall champagne flutes that are normally kept in a velvet box with tiny silver latch.  The Lady likes drinks that taste like candy and slip down easy, so she added extra Chambord and stuffed the glasses with way too many raspberries.  She let me have some of the fresh raspberries because she said they were the same texture as my lips.  They were interesting, but I just squished them up and spit them on the clean floor.  For dinner The Lady made a tasty Raspberry Chicken.  (Are you beginning to sense a theme?)  She kept proclaiming in a loud voice how it was a Lo-Cal dish as she stood over the stove and furiously whisked in another quart of heavy cream for the sauce, cackling maniacally like a mad scientist.  (I think several Kir Royales had slipped down by this time.)  She also made some grilled asparagus and leeks with carmelized scallions, and a bunch of other stuff that wasn't very interesting.  I got a little piece of plain chicken and gnawed on some asparagus stems while she was still in her lemon yellow apron, throwing everything together.  At the end of the evening Miss Eileen, one of the guests, snuggled into one of the squishy chairs, wrapped herself in the edges of the slipcover, borrowed some lime green socks and announced she was nodding off in a food coma.

Ok, so if you couldn't make it to my birthday dinner, you didn't hear the announcement about the winners of the drawing.  Remember, if you are one of the lucky winners, you have to  send your land address to my very own e-mail address so The Lady can send your present.  I was only supposed to select 6 winners, but when I picked the last one, two slips of paper stuck to my tongue, so we had to be fair and give away seven presents.

Here are the winners: 
Carina Guinane, Dozer Dottie & Cooper, Bijntji, Darlene & Samantha, Laurie, Princess AnnieBella, and Mario da Cat.
