First off: I won a marathon! I have a certificate and a refrigerator magnet to prove it! On August 2nd, 2006, Dr. John had a blog commenting marathon and I commented on over 30 blogs. Not only that, I actually read the blogs and commented on the topics at hand. For my outstanding endurance and heroic effort Dr. John sent me a “genuine Marathon Certificate” and a refrigerator magnet of my blog header. They arrived in today’s mail and I am quite tickled. Thank you Dr. John! (No, people, this does not explain why he is so far ahead in the polls. If you want to know how he’s managed that, visit his blog and see how many folks are in his congregation.)
Second bit of news: I have a new blog. It is called Bits of Me in Poetry. Today I lifted a picture from Rob over at Controlled Chaos, wrote a poem to go with and posted it on my new blog. Pop on over and read it. If you’re in the Liar’s Contest I’ll even vote for you if you leave me a comment. (I’ll cast only one vote even of you post 50 comments, sorry. Hmm, make that one vote for every day you post a comment there ….)
Third bit of news: Sarah has proffered two lies. Her first lie is the one in the contest. Her second lie was when she “confessed” in the comments that she had to withdraw from the contest because her lie was actually truth. Ha! That one tickled me so much that I immediately cast a vote for her.
Fourth bit of news: The contest has barely begun and already [to this second] 713 votes have been cast. Dr. John, his daughter-in-law, Lori, Bazza, and Donna are running neck-n-neck. Some of you have fallen behind, but don’t worry. This is an endurance race and there are still five more days before the finish line comes into view.
The lies are here. The poll is in the right sidebar near the top. If it doesn’t appear just click reload, it’s there. Honest.
