The winner is…
(insert drumroll here)
Congratulations Bean-Mom – please let me know to which email address you’d like me to send your Amazon gift certificate!
Beth – dude – second place three years in a row! If I see you tonight I’ll buy you a bonus prize in liquid format, because really, that’s almost more impressive than winning!
Many thanks to everyone who voted! Personally I prefer the top three choices approach to the single vote I’ve used in previous years, because I think it approaches a fairer representation; several people have mentioned in the past that it’s really hard to pick just one comment, especially when the options can be so different in type, length, and tone. However, the number of votes was way down (by more than 50%, once I’d disqualified a couple of entries that ignored the “vote for three different comments as your first, second and third choices” rule), so maybe I should revert just to be more inclusive, or maybe move the vote to a less busy time of year. What do you guys think? If anything?
