Little Bit of Awesome: I Actually WON Something?

So I read this blog called Babysaur, even though I don't have babies, because it's incredibly cute and it gives me crafty ideas.  About a month ago they had a giveaway for an awesome book, The Modern Girl's Guide to Sticky Situations by Jane Buckingham.  They also featured it on Wedinator, another cheezburger website.  I entered, thinking they'd probably choose one of the other hundreds, but, according to Kristyn, they picked me! Yipee!

They asked, "What is the stickiest situation you've been in?" Here's what I wrote:

I have celiac disease and so have to eat a very strict gluten-free diet. My mother in law, to get back at me for stealing her son, put on a full-out Thanksgiving dinner with not a gluten-free morsel in sight. Then loudly complained that I was being rude by not eating her cooking.

Completely true story, everybody.  It's whacko.

Here is the book:
And she wrote an inscription: Dear Jenny - Congratulations and hope you enjoy the book! then an unintelligible signature that could say Kristyn or Jane or Dorothy for all I know.  

P.S. This title is awesome, but an awesomer (yes, that's a word, I just made it up) title would be ...Awkward...
