    If, on the penultimate (love that word!) day of the year, I have not yet voted, feel free to deluge me with "polite" reminders.

    Hee. I feel like some announcer from the horse-races is going to pop in any second now with commentary: "And OTP and KW are neck-and neck for the lead, but SW is closing on the leaders as we speak. Meanwhile, don't count out WIY, doing a commentable job of closing the gap in the far outside lane."

    As I predicted, a very close race. Anything else would be illogical.
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    I'll try to read all of them later after I'm done with my chores. Or most probably tomorrow. I'll give my vote to only one! Although Toni has knows who wrote the one story...

    I wish I could read it now!!!!

    Aaaah, loggin' out. Bailin' out everybody. See ya.

    Oooh, fun. Some interesting literature to look forward to this weekend! Its a safe bet my vote will be to the one that wins, as i have an uncanny sensivity (even online!) to other peoples emotions.

    May the shortest storiest win!

    Come on, you can still reach a hundred before the poll closes. Go visit the Games section After all, your vote could be the deciding one.

    Yeah the Games! Especially the Count to 10,000 thread. You can do it all by yourself until you reach a hundred! Hehe...One vote can make the difference between a whimpering loser and a jubilant winner!

    Ofcourse, there are no losers here who whimper! Just joking y'all! In fact there are goin to be no losers here! All of 'em are winners, in my opinion, 'cause they made it this far...
