I'm pretty sure they want you to know other things are well, and all of them small-minded. But if they could go back in time and do it all over again, I'm sure this time their signs would say "Support Your Favorites: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/636396.html"
Because I can't imagine anyone is really all that proud to see their relatives in those pictures as is, whereas supporting something worthwhile, like telling people what entries you liked, is something much more acceptable.
I can't imagine people holding up signs like that these days. Can you imagine what sort of person you would have to be to stand in the way of such a basic civi... what? Check the news feeds. Um... nevermind.
I'll go back to reading my copy of Christopher Buehlman's Between Two Fires http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20/detail/1937007863 (or http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20/detail/B008EXK672 for the Kindle version) before going to bed. I'm still amazed that he is donating his time and talent to Idol for the Community Chest, http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/633787.html He's a good guy and one heck of a writer, so if you get the chance to check out more of his work, I know you won't be disappointed. He's giving us some love, so I hope that he will get some in return http://christopherbuehlman.com/
Speaking of showing some love, and the poll - what have been some of your favorites from this past week?
