Cast Your Vote

March 17, 2009 | My Jottings

We Minnesotans know what it’s like to brave all kinds of weather as we go to the polls in November to cast our votes. We Minnesotans are fairly experienced with enduring electing all manner of people in high office in our usually left-leaning state. We Minnesotans also know what it means to wait for exceedingly long periods of time for important election results (i.e. the recent Senate race between Norm Coleman and Al Franken.)

Well, while we wait, I’m offering an opportunity for readers to cast their vote here on the blog and have it counted, accurately and quickly.

I have several rough drafts in the works, but am a little stuck. So I’m going to let you, the reader, decide what I should write about in my next post. Please look at the list below, decide what you would like to see on the blog next, and cast your vote by telling me your choice at the bottom of this post in the “comments” section. If you would like to remain anonymous, just tell me that when you leave your choice, and I will count your vote but not publish your comment.

1.  Last But Not Least (my 5th favorite book of all time)

2.  Letters in the Sand

3.  Denel

4.  Pecans in My Pocket

5.  Organ Lessons

6.  Ten-Minute Challenge

7.  Rorschach Towel

8.  The Best Rooster’s Beak

9.  “Bring Them Here to Me”

10. Once Upon a Toile

11. The Quest for Beauty

12. Night-time Ritual

13. “Yook at dat yake!”

14. Dixon

Polls are open now, and you don’t have to go out in the weather to make your voice heard. Polls close at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, 2009.

    So many to choose from. “Bring Them Here to Me”, “Yook at dat yake!” and The Best Rooster’s Beak all sound like good reading to me. Can’t wait to read which one wins!

  2. Tauni says:

    Wow, I agree, so many to choose from. I would love to hear about Denel and also about Organ lessons too. But I think I already know what those are about. I am curious about “Ten minute challenge” and the “Letters in the Sand” ones.

  3. Jessica says:

    Oh my! How to decide!?!

    I am dying to hear about “Yook at dat yake” because I can only imagine the story behind that… Having a psych degree is also making me curious about your Rorschach Towel.

    Truthfully, I hope you post them all! I love your blog!!!

  4. Eileen R. says:

    The Best Rooster’s Beak

  5. Carolyn says:

    I’m voting for #3, ‘Denel’.

  6. Sara says:

    I vote for 10-minute challenge, or The quest for beauty.

  7. Sharon says:

    Pecans in my Pocket gets my vote.

  8. Rob Franck says:

    12, 11, 7, 6

  9. Ginny the computer challenged friend says:

    Hands down… anything about roosters has to be a hoot! We all know how I love birds!
    My nightmare would be to wake up with a rooster sitting on my window sill, crowing his head off at the crack of dawn!
