What are you doing?! You already made the mistake of putting off Christmas shopping this year. Remember that? Sitting in the long line at Yankee Candle, surrounded by soulless middle-aged women and other men in your predicament. Babies screaming and crying because they also sense the tortuous situation they're in. And when you get to the checkout line, you know that the cute girl behind the counter knows that you're buying this gift because you're lazy and you have no imagination and, deep down, you don't really love your mother all that much. You try to smile and be friendly, but she channels the future mother inside of her and gives you an icy Death Stare.
So why are you putting off voting in the 2010 Bloody Elbow Reader Awards? You joined before October 1st, right? You've made 50 comments, right? Well, gee whiz, you deserve to treat yourself! You don't want to be left out. If you don't vote, you can't really complain when Leonard Garcia wins Fighter of the Year, can you? And I'll let you in on a little secret: Leonard's up by 35 points in the voting! Don't let this travesty occur!
