Here's what I kept trying to post yesterday - five times with no luck. Anyway, I still feel very good about winning - thank you all!


Ah, it feels so good to win! Thank you all who voted for me, thank you so much!!!

My mama, however, is very disappointed that I won't be getting a real satin pajama in the mail anytime soon. Reminds me of Alice: "What is the use of a book... without pictures or conversations?"

And Sasha, he asked me this in an email: "BTW, is the pajamas a teddy-bear size or a
breast-feeding mama size?"

But still, it feels wonderful to win.

Ogromnoye spasibo! Duje dyakuyu!
