What's less exciting is my pictures of the winner selection. Elka, you see, was focusing very hard on this freaked out looking squeaky chicken that I got her from Wal-Mart. I figured, "Okay, she can do that while I write down all of these names, then I'll throw the names on the floor, per usual, and she'll pick one up and go back to chicken squeaking."
Yeah, wrong. She was so perplexed by the "pick it up" cue after her chicken was removed that she started on a glitch-in-the-Matrix loop around the living room, occasionally going to glance in the kitchen, as though to find the chicken stealing gremlin lurking there.
But anyway. At long length, she stomped through the names a few times, and then picked one and carried it off, and I had to call her back and have her drop it.
A giveaway hard one, I say!
