    That sounds like a special month. Early congratulations on all three celebratory items.

    I’ve filled out the form, because the book looks great! I now follow you on twitter, but didn’t before, I did count it as an entry, though I’m not sure if it counts.

    And um, the last h on the link to your twitter account is missing in this post.

      Yep, it counts! 🙂 And thanks, I’ve fixed the link now.

    Good idea for a competition – I like the entry form, although I didn’t enter yet 🙂 I also like that “Human test by Not Captcha” thing in the comments section 😀

    • Carina May 15, 2010 at 10:07 am

      Yay! I needed to do some kind of human recognition thing since I was getting tons of spam comments, but I was trying for something a little less … irritating? … than the type-in-a-word thing. It’s good to hear that it’s liked!
