Let the Voting Begin!

Friends,

The four chosen contest entries have been posted below. Please read them and, in the comments, vote for the one you think is best. At the end of the week we will crown one the winner and I will begin crushing him or her—I mean, crushing on him or her. My mistake.

I vote for #2! Concise, witty, non-preachy, non-sci-fi! I'd take my chances with the zombies, but "Camelot!" - I shudder!

"the earthly truth is that Betsy-Sue doesn't give a damn about your Paul Mitchell styling gel or your Argyle dress socks"

#4

Any Betsy-Sue worth a damn doesn't care.

JSK! JSK! JSK! JSK! JSK! JSK! #1.

Sarah said...

I think the only votes you might get are 4 votes for 4 different entries. Hmmm... I wonder who wrote what?

JSK said...

Ok, so in the 8th grade I lost the student council election by one vote...and guess what....I didn't vote for myself because I thought it was bad form. So, even if it's bad form, I'm voting for myself and the very real threat of a zombie epidemic.

Jennifer said...

JSK, I liked the zombie part. If I wasn't voting for me, I'd vote for you.

Hey everyone else: you don't have to read them - just vote for the shortest one! ;)

These essays are pretty clever and all contain elements of truth, but they are all too wordy, and miss the most important point. I hereby submit my late, but awesome entry out of disapproval for the preceding works:

The reverse pretend crush is not a viable life strategy because it distracts users from REAL crushes.

I rest my case.

Elisa said...

I pick Drew's.

Jennifer said...

No way, Drew. The pitfalls of crushes are NOT something to cherish. That's why I only crush on fictional characters.

Hey David! Write an essay on that!

David Grover said...

LJG: Loved by Jennifer Grover?

LJG: Lost, Jaded GI?

LJG: Leroy Jethro Gibbs

Sarah said...

Logan & Jean Grey?

Tim said...

I'm voting for JSK.

Jennifer said...

LJG: Living Just for Gibbs

Joe said...

I vote JSK. Her spidery essay is like a ninja star to my brain.

Also, it is a well-known fact of life that the only way to get out of bed, regardless of RPCs, is to lie to yourself.

JSK said...

Jennifer, thanks! And I would agree... Camelot is pretty scary too!
