I’ll get to the above quote in a hot minute. But first, hell to the yes I own a pair of the famous Bitcoin Alpaca socks, and they are like a soft cocoon of billowy warmth on your feet.

Speaking of non-existent struggles, I am excited to announce someone actually participated in my first TBW giveaway! I had to wait two weeks for a single response, but it was well worth it. Congratulations to Dave from coinblog.ca who submitted the aforementioned witty response. He will be receiving a delicious bar of soap courtesy of Bad Dog Farms, along with with some Bitcoin shwag. Check out Dave’s blog sometime, it has been rumored he will be doing monthly Bitcoin contests where you can score some BTC…err XBT…(tomato, tomatoe) by correctly guessing end of the month market prices. Thanks for humoring my whims Dave!
