Audience Participation: Help me choose my submission

I have lots of blogging to do, but for now: a Poll!  I need your help choosing my submission for the National Gallery of Writing.

I want something that is personal, but not too personal, that can stand alone, that is representative of the types of writing I do and that says something about me as a person.  I’ve narrowed it down to a few choices, but I’d like your help selecting the ONE favorite I should submit.

Here are the links in case you’re not intimately familiar with EVERY one of my blog posts.  :)

Fellow bloggers:  What are your favorite posts from your blog.  Consider posting them in the Gallery (and by “consider” I mean “DO IT!!”)

The results are in…

According to this poll, the majority of my blog readers think I look like Jennifer Irwin from Still Standing.  I guess I can see it.  The first time someone told me that, I had to look her up ‘cuz I’d never seen the show.

I’m a little surprised that Jewel didn’t get *any* votes. I might not have picked the right photo.  I don’t think I look like her at all, but I’ve heard it more than once.  Is this more convincing?  


No?  Okay.  

ONE person told me I look like Elisha Cuthbert.   I really don’t see that one, but Wow-zah… I’ll take that comparison any day :)


Thanks, everyone, for humoring me.  It was actually a pretty interesting experiment.   I’ve always wished I had big, deer-in-the-headlights eyes.  But if these girls can rock the small eyes, so can I!!

Election Day Poll

Okay, okay… I know everyone has election fever… and it’s really exciting.  But how ’bout some mindless distraction while you eagerly await election results?

Which celebrity do I most resemble? 
Someone recently told me I look like Bridget Fonda.  I’ve also been told that I look like the singer Jewel and  the sister on Still Standing (actress Jennifer Irwin).  Click on the photos to enlarge them.  In the off chance you don’t know what I look like, check out any of the Foto Friday posts for reference.

I appreciate the compliments, but I don’t think I look like any of these people, but I’m anxious to hear what you all think.   Exercise your constitutional right to vote in a completely arbitrary, frivolous poll on this election day!!

**If you choose “other” please let me know who the “other” is… I’m dying to know**

I”ll acknowledge that my first attempt at a poll fell a little flat.  I promised to write the winning blog post…and ended up writing none of them–oops!  Hopefully this one will be more successful since there’s no expectation for me to *do* anything this time!!

With a show of hands…

WordPress has added a polling feature so I thought it would be fun to let you– my devoted blog readers– choose the topic of my next post.  Now, I realize there are only about 4 of you, so vote early and vote often.  Stuff the ballot box if you’d like…   I will write the chosen post later this week!
