Luca's latest scheme? He pilfered the Don's fedora--you know, the one from which the Don draws the winning ticket--and planted it on me!
Now, prior to the great reveal, with the fedora goodness knows where, and the Don ranting and raving about sunbeams bouncing off his pate, I tried to convince the boss to try Random.org. You should have heard the fireworks! "Nuttin' in this life is random," the Don berated me. "If you don't know that, you don't know nuttin'."
Believe me, you don't argue with the Don when he's in one of these moods. He's more doctrinaire than the Pope.
The fedora was finally found almost in plain view, perched behind my computer monitor. Fortunately, I had it dusted for prints and the arrogant, glove-eschewing Luca's were all over the brim.
Luca's apparently taken a short trip to Switzerland.
And now, after much delay--and with many apologies--I am able to announce the winners of both Dianne Salerni's ARC of The Inquisitor's Mark and Ami Polonsky's Gracefully Grayson. Boss, would you do the honors?
(Drumroll, as thick fingers descend into the fedora...)
The winner of Dianne's ARC is:
The winner of Gracefully Grayson is:
I'll be contacting you both, a.s.a.p. And now, back to work! Ciao!
