sank, the depths to which i've

It's been positively years since I've had my journal judged (and yet most of my friends from the_reviewers remain -- hi guys!), so on a whim this past Monday I joined the LJ Idol competition. When I saw that it was a competition that had its participants doing a writing assignment every week, I signed right up.

The first week's topic was simply to introduce yourself, and the entry I wrote for it was this one.

So how this works is, all the involved parties post their entries in their journals, then nobody reads them and the contestants just get all of their friends to vote for them. Yes, it's just a popularity contest but now I'm IN it and now it's a matter of pride.

If the integrity of my pride isn't a noble enough cause for you, then how about this: I'm one of only a handful of participants who appears to actually put effort into his journal entries, while the rest go for the stream-of-consciousness rambly style. So not only would you be aiding my fragile sense of self, you'd be striking a blow - albeit an incredibly feeble one - to our rampantly anti-intellectual society. Plus, if I get the most votes (not likely, but POSSIBLE with your help), I'd get to make up the next assignment and frankly, I've got ideas about how to put those chumps to work.

Anybody with a journal can vote, you don't need to be a community member. So hey, vote! It only takes approximately four clicks*, and it will be greatly appreciated.

*one click on the link, one click+drag to scroll to the bottom of the page, one click to check the box next to my name, and one click to submit. You can include one more click to close the window afterward.
