    Where do I e-mail
    my postal address so I
    can read my book now?

  2. Itsumishi says:

    Certainly not mine, and nothing to do with the competition but my favourite Haiku goes a little like this.

    Haikus are easy
    But sometimes they don’t make sense

    Poetry’s the thing:
    a well-endited rhyme is
    its own fair guerdon.

    This just breaks my heart – it is hard for me to even see the Zeitoun sign as anything but a regular advertisement on the sidewalk. I suppose nothing can make a New Orleanian expatriate gal living in Oslo miss home more than remembering all the horrific things that happened in that bosom of a homeland.

    Congratulations to all the winners!

    BTW, I was having problems with my account setup, and scoured Boing Boing for a way to contact somebody, but found nothing. Ended up sending an email on 9/30 to the only contact info I found which was joel@boingboing.net. Please post contact info so that I can clear up this issue with my account. I would like to post as something other than anonymous (and have my entry possibly count the next time you have a contest).

    A loyal reader
