Contest final round. But first!

But first, the galleys for Game of Cages arrived today. Woo-hoo! Due on March 10th, so I'm getting out the colored pencils!

Now, the Valentine's Day contest. To recap: I asked folks to share a story of dating hell, and I'd pick three for folks to vote on. Here are the tales of woe:

Entry one: A blind date, practice relationship, accidental kiss, and Mel Gibson.

Entry two: A boyfriend with a wandering eye, a dinner date with eight of his closest friends--his treat, and much patting of empty pockets.

Entry three: A beautiful woman, an ugly man, the creepy doctor trying to couple them up, and an ugly man's hurt feelings exploding in workplace violence.

Entry four: Weeks of pressure at the office to go on a blind date, a guy who doesn't want to be there either, small talk about divorces and custody battles, and hopefully a punch in the face the next day at work.

However! Entry three clearly violates the rules, since it contains one murder and arguably more, so the three finalists are one, two and four.

Give the entries a quick read and vote for your favorite! I'll pick the winner Friday night.

We have a clear winner!

It's just like Trivia Night, isn't it?

Either that or it's just like 'Nam, I can't decide.

Wow - thanks to everyone who voted for my story! You know how people tell you that you'll later look back on a bad situation and laugh about it? Well, tonight is that night for me. :P I really appreciate the votes and I'm so excited!

Personally, I suspect the happy ending put you over the top.

I hope you enjoy it.
