Giveaway winners!

Lucky ducky!
The winner of the giveaway is....

Aly !

You won the special hoop art I made in honor of
Shakespeare and Julius Ceasar and the Ides of March!

By the way, I used for the first time.
It's cool, takes about one second, and no hat necessary. I'm a fan.
Yay for Aly!

So back to Ceasar. The story is even better than the salad. Do you remember it now? The soothsayer, kind of a creepy old man, saunters up to Julius Ceasar on the road as he is on his way to the Forum and says, "Beware the ides of March!" Julius kind of blows him off, assuming he's a little looney. But then guess what? When all the leaders gather, Brutus leads a coup and Caesar is assassinated. "Et tu Brute?" Julius utters as his best friend literally stabs him in the back. Brutus was his best friend, but pride was the real enemy. This scene could be the most frequently referenced betrayal in all of literature! Isn't it exciting!! I know half of you are like, "Is she really still talking about this?"  

Sorry, I'm kind of nerdy like that. I really love the classics. 
And I'm not the only one, because someone got all my questions right at the crack of dawn, no less. So congrats to.....

Britt K ! 

She gets a custom headband for being a good listener in high school!

Thanks for playing, friends. I hope you have a great weekend.
Maybe I'll Netflix this piece of film.

I've never seen it, but with Brando? Yes please.

(Aly & Britt me (see sidebar) and we can arrange the details.)
