Super Secret Giveaway Winner

This giveaway was announced, and instructions for entering it were given, in the "Cake Pushers" post.

It was announced very quietly, in the middle of a dense paragraph.

I did that because I was very curious how carefully readers read blogs.

One reason for my curiosity is that I often skim (as I mentioned before); another reason is that it is typical for comments to refer to something written at the very beginning or end of a post, so I wondered if the middle parts were read.

I was not trying to "hide" the giveaway from anyone, so nobody get upset. 

However, I do think it is nice to limit the entry field to those who actually read the full post -- and because they wanted to -- not because I titled the post "Giveaway!!!".

Altogether, there were 45 comments on that post.  38 of them saw the subtle giveaway mention, and entered the giveaway.

I used a random generator, and if the random number picked was not one that entered the contest, I picked again (which happened once).

THE WINNER.  OF THE RANDOM ASS BAG OF THINGS I LOVE AND THINGS I DO NOT WANT (chopsticks and Dragon Tattoo Book) IS:
