Vote Here! Vote Now!! Vote Often!!!

My friend Jim in Halibut Cove is fond of saying, "The key to indecision is flexibility." With that in mind, I'm going to let you guys pick the winner of Name That 'Shroom.

If you haven't a clue as to what I'm talking about, you need to scroll down and read the post below--"Audience Participation." Then read the comments which are found by clicking on the "comments" word at the end of the story.

As for the flexibility part, (and to cover up my indecision) you can either vote for the writer (which will count as five votes), or the individual writer's name/entrants for the 'shrooms.

Get that? I mean, if you think all of Rilly's are the best, just vote for Rilly and I'll tally that as one viote for each of her names.

However, if you like Beth's "Does this dress make me look fat? (she stole that from under my skull)" vote for Beth Number Four and Rilly Number One and ....you get the idea?

If you split 'em up, each 'shroom name counts as one vote. And don't be surprised if I skew the votes in favor of the ones I like 'cuz this is my blog and I can cheat if I want.

In the meantime, I'll post my pathetic names because I said I would. But, after all of yours....well, "pathetic" is the right word. Plus, I'm still stuck in the real estate/dwelling mode.

Fireplace smokestacks. (You ever stepped on one of these puffballs? There's a reason they're called puffballs.)


Subdivision with monochromatic painting covenants.

Little red schoolhouse.

Plate tectonics. You should have see the size of this one.

Polls are open. Commence Vote here, vote now, vote often--but if you want to vote for "dress makes me look fat" ten times, you have to do it in ten comments.
