A couple things. One sad. One good.

First sad: Despite pledging my devotion to Mike on Dancing with the Stars and posting the call-in number on twitter and Facebook, he did not get enough votes to stay on. And now I am sad. Because he endeared himself to me. He doesn’t seem like he’d be super adorable, but he really is.

Mike on DWTS – you will be missed

Oh well, I’ll just throw all my support behind Macchio, since he’s going to win DWTS

Good thing: I ran an impromptu caption contest on Twitter and Facebook last week. I said who ever came up with the cleverest response would win a signed copy of a book. I based my decision solely on how much I laughed upon reading the caption.

Here’s the picture:

And here’s the winning tweet:

The caption is especially fitting, because although you can’t tell, I am in fact wearing a Star Wars shirt in the picture.  It was this shirt, actually (from Threadless.com):

Thanks to everyone for participating in that. I had a lot of fun reading what everyone had to say, and I think I’ll be doing more of that kinda stuff in the future. Because it was fun. And I enjoy fun things.

    A holy church, rings, a bouquet, a 3-floor wedding cake, lace wedding dress

  • OMG that shirt design is SO CUTE.

  • That shirt makes me think of “Where The Wild Things Are” (the movie). It was much, much better than I thought it would be. I loved the book as a kid, but c’mon, a two hour movie based on a 20 page book?

    I’m not gonna lie. I had teary eyes.

    *ahem* I haven’t watched any episodes yet…they’re all on DVR. I had a short story to get done and I just couldn’t. Now the story’s done and I can have a nice marathon. Yay!

    I’m looking forward to more captioning WAY more than the gorgeous cat is 🙂
    Um, and pardon the geek alert but the colour balancing in that compostion – the blue of books, the shirt, the curtain, not to mention the brown of cat and couch – are fantastic

    Re: Star Wars – I have the theatre magazines with each of the original trilogy on the covers. I dressed as Princess Leia for Halloween (twice) with the danishes on my head.
