And the winner is...

Fuzzy Bunny!

No, actually that's not the name of the winner. It's just that I was recalling this morning an old friend's assertion that the first thing you should say upon waking up on the first day of the month is, yes, "fuzzy bunny." Anyone else heard that, or maybe an alternate month-greeting phrase? Where's it come from?

Superstitions aside, the winner of our New Year CD giveaway is... Pablo Programita! Pablo, his profile says, is a geophysics engineer in Utrecht, Netherlands, and author of the Spanish-language (not Dutch?) Utilidades Practicas blog. He'll be receiving the 2-CD set Sound of the World, compiled by the BBC's Charlie Gillett.

Thanks to everyone else who left comments during January, and I hope you'll keep it up even without the incentive of a prize.

A pinch and a punch, first day of the month.

Great near-rhyme, and something of the violent polar opposite of "fuzzy bunny," but I can't imagine this endearing one to one's friends and loved ones!
