Beam me up, that was a nice week one. And congrats to Cindy! Also there was a Meg who won, was it "our" Meg by any chance?

Beam me up. A solid week 1. Had as much fun with the theme answers as the meta.

Woo! Much appreciated after the disappointing (for me) end to Guest Constructor Month.

Beam me up! BTW, I was the “JS” that won Matt’s weekly prize for the “Flights of Fancy” meta (SFORNO). I read and responded to Matt’s email too late to get my name and location into last weeks write-up. The last time I won MGWCC was about 2 years ago. Now if I can just get lucky enough to win the elusive WSJCC mug.....

Congratulations!! Next best thing to winning myself is to see a fellow muggle win.

Nice and easy, which I really needed after last week's MGWCC and PGWCC and this week's PGWCC and Fireball. I have really been struggling lately...not feeling more smarter. :(

Congrats to all the prize winners!

Yes I won and yes it was our Meg! I solved every Mgwcc for more than two years without winning a monthly prize. Barbara has the actual statistics including the odds of that kind of streak happening, but it did. I started to enjoy the challenge of not getting selected. Now I have won twice in a very short time. I still contend that you do not want me to go with you to Vegas. I still have never won a mug or a weekly Mgwcc. I did win the fireball once.
