Contest Results!

Here are the contest results. Please keep in mind that I limited this to five, so if you aren’t in here…well, that doesn’t mean your post wasn’t clever enough to be considered.

Here are the five top picks, in no particular order. I have posted a portion of their comments that I found striking. My thoughts are included in brackets.


From Breanalee Angelica:

I also thrive off of adrenaline rushes, and love to try anything new and exciting. from food, to planning things beyond my possible ability.
Another thing that makes me unique is that I love the emergency room.

[The emergency room?]

From Cassie, at Inside my Mind:

I have two chinchillas and two rabbits, I started out with only one (male) chinchilla, but when he gave birth to a baby I had to change his name from Oliver to Olivia. :)

[Hmm…]

By the end of the year, I will have a sister from China.I love the word "wonky"

[Hah hah “wonky”!]

From Chantel, at Joy in the Journey:

I love to watch ants, I love to wear sandals, I love clotheslines, and I've always liked doing laundry best of all chores.

[ants?]

From Justin:

I am unique because I am the only person who did not answer the prompt generically.

[concise and clever]

From Ashley at unstoppably-ordinary:

I love taking walks in the rain; I never use salt or pepper on my food; I really despise olives; I have a lime green parakeet named Kiwi… I am an easily inspired, usually cheerful, very unique goal-making multi-tasker who is great at planning, great at procrastinating, and dreadful at following through.

[not presumptuous: real and human]

    Truly thought provoking was that Justin West's post. I may never eat my raisin bran ever again without being reminded of those wise words. I guess it really has nothing to do with raisin bran, but I don't eat it anyway. So there. I vote for Justin.

  5. Ha ha!!

    I love these comments!!!

    AND whoever "someone who has never met Justin West" is, you're awesome. ha ha

    And even though Justin is my friend, I have to vote for Cassie. Seriously!!! How unique is it that she likes the word "wonky"???

    ReplyDelete
  6. I vote for Ashley because she seems to be the most weirdly unique person. As to the fabulous part, that will have to be decided by other voters. However, I appreciate the other posts as well.
    -Someone who has met Justin, but continues to hold her own best interests at heart

  7. To nobody in general and everybody in particular:

  15. Brilliant man who should have two votes.July 22, 2009 at 6:54 AM

    Justin seems to be a wise man. The others, whilst somewhat unique in the fact that they aren't exactly normal, are also a cliche form on strange non-conformity by stating weird things. Justin just flat out did not do what he was told. He's also very well loved.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I vote for Justin West, because I am secretly in love with him. The act of placing this vote is the only way I can bring myself to express my true feelings.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My vote? Simply put, Justin West. I don't think I can be any more clear.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Even if Justin didn't have the sexual prowess of ten men, I would still vote for him.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I vote for Cassie, because she's the underdog at this point, and I like underdogs better than overdogs, and right now Justin is an overdog. So there. Ha. How that feel you make?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. Is it just me, or does it seem like Justin (or another SINGULAR person) is voting for himself under the guise of "Anonymous"? It just seems rather suspicious.

    ReplyDelete
  35. someone that lives states away...July 27, 2009 at 4:36 PM

    I don't think it is suspicious...i don't know anyone, but I trust that everyone is doing it honestly...at least i am... it would really spoil the fun if someone was doing that....

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well, if somebody is cheating, then why can't we all cheat? I personally vote for Phillip, and even though he isn't really in the contest, I suppose he could still win if enough people voted for him. I hereby call all of my minions to vote for me!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  52. I vote Phillip, he's pretty boring, and I like boring.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Phillip has my vote, if Justin wins, he'll be all pompous and haughty about it, and I hate that.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I vote Phillip, he puts vinegar on his ice cream. How unique is that?

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm voting for Phillip, he has a Dilbert calendar on his desk.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I vote for Phillip of course, because if I didn't, well, then he wouldn't get my vote, and that would be sad, wouldn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  57. I vote for Phillip, because he's my boss.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I vote for Phillip, because he only needs a couple more votes to win. So there, Justin, step away from that scarf! It is not for you! No, don't even look at it. Just walk away.

    ReplyDelete
  59. A wise man once said, "I vote for Phillip" so I must vote for him as well.

    ReplyDelete
  60. With all due respect for Justin, and that not being very much, I must place my vote on Phillip. He is clearly the intelligent choice.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Well, I could vote for somebody else, but I will vote for Phillip, because he is in the lead right now, and I want him to win.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I see that Phillip is now winning, thanks to all my subordinates. Good work minions, and thank you for all your support. This will teach the world a lesson about challenging my master to a fight.

    ReplyDelete
  63. One more thing. I vote Phillip.

  64. Someone who Lives States Away...July 28, 2009 at 9:09 AM

    I'm sorry to say...but if Amy counts all those votes...it would be very depressing to all of us....I tihnk as soon as Amy sees all those votes she should delete them...I have never met Justin or anyone not even Amy but it is NOT your place to say rude things about Justin...and I did not say TO CHEAT!!! To have fun with a contest you can't cheat...Amy...those votes DON"T count if they do...i won't be very happy neither will anyone eles...I think you should end the contest as soon as possible

    ReplyDelete
  65. This is Bonnie, Amy's sister.

    Just so you know, Justin is our friend. Phillip is our brother. Phillip doesn't hate Justin. As for his minions, did you REALLY think Amy would count them? Phillip didn't even enter the contest!! lol

    Anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Don't worry guys. I haven't been repeat voting for myself. that would be lame and, how should one say, rather conformist. However, I did link to my facebook and since many of my friends don't have blogs they have probably just been using anonymous.

    ReplyDelete
  67. This is Kelsey Whited and I knew justin in high school (probably had a crush on him more than once) I vote justin :)
