Norma Jean gets my vote.

I think anybody that takes their heart and slaps it on their sleeve for all the world to see is a winner. And a somewhat fearless winner at that. I think that it's great to see people take a little time to compare the notes of their lives with others around the world.

And isn't it a bit fitting that as we celebrate the life of one of the bravest men to ever grace the planet that the proceeds are being donated to the people of Haiti who need some help.

I'm having a bit of difficulty making up my mind on who to vote for but I will vote.

I just think it turned out as more of a collaboration that a competition.

Hats off to all for keeping Dr King's dream alive!!!

Great story. I think dinosaur stories will be as popular with children for as long as they've been extinct (dinosaurs that is - not children). Maybe a slight exaggeration.

Bugger - think I look a bit of a twat for putting an old vacuous post up about Chuck Bass amidst all the poignancy in other posts... Anyhoo... I vote for Daycare Lady - a fab writer and seems like a lovely lady to boot.

January 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJ

congrats daycare lady! well deserved!

Thanks so much to everyone who read and voted, not just for me but for the other writers too. If they are anything like me I'm sure they appreciate the extra readership that comes from Monica's competition (which for me is almost everyone!). Thanks Monica and wow, $750 for Haiti - lovely!

January 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDaycare Lady

Congrats Daycare Lady! And to second the sentiment; so glad we were able to do this for the Red Crosd for Haiti. Great idea Monica, thank you for the contest and gesture!
