uh oh, he's slipping.....64th place now. come on and vote, U.S. friends!
thanks for the reminder - I haven't voted in a few days!
aha, excellent! i'll be voting from now on and thanks for the tip willowoman7!! can't wait to read the essay...
crap, I can't type...you all understand though! =)
I'm all about stats and have been known to occasionally have a competitive streak, so here's the deal:
Our guy is up again, to 47th place since yesterday, so that's great. The frontrunner has 2199 votes so far; 1995 more than our guy. To tie with her would take 40 votes a day for the 50 remaining days till the contest closes. That's to tie her if she got no more votes after today, which of course she will.
I would love to see this guy win, see the $ go to the MS Society in the US, but most of all the spotlight this would put on MS and the awareness it would raise would be great, as in addition to the $, the real prize is that the essay gets published in a book by Anthony Bourdain.
So any of you who can vote, I hope you do, and I'll do my part like Lu did and re-post on my FB page, and othe MS pages and sites I can think of.
thanks for the reminder - I just put it out there in my FB page again..... and our local MS chapter facebook page as well.
Moved from 49th place to 48th place out of 1344. Keep VOTING! Remember if you're in the U.S. you can vote once a day, every day till contest closes!
I just voted..I will vote daily till september.....Lets get this guy into 1st place!!! Come on everyone we can do this!!! He has promised that if he wins, he will donate the $10,000 prize to NMSS. :) Linda
He's moved up 6 spots to 49th place. Way to go, anyone and everyone who voted. Tomorrow is another day and another opportunity to vote!
You're so right, DV - if we could get the vote out..............
Currently with 158 votes, this essay is in 55th place out of 1310.
come on American friends, vote daily and ask your friends to vote too! I'll bet this forum alone could get this guy into first place.
Wish I could vote but alas us Canadians, UKers, Aussies and NZers can only cheer from the sidelines.
oh, voting only open in U.S., maybe that's it.
what is wrong with me that I can't figure out how to vote via FB?
brutal honesty stated so eloquently
sorry you can't vote helen
this is open only to the US, even for votes ;(
Cool. I love Bourdain.
