I know what you mean. Picking my faves from the qualifiers was much easier, but when you have to choose one title over another it's not easy :(

How can I vote?
Hi. I want to vote for Demon Kebabs, with Fries on the Side, but can't figure out how. Does this comment count as a vote cast?

Re: How can I vote?
Thanks for taking an interest in the competition. I'm afraid you have to have an LJ account to cast a vote. On the plus side, they're free, so you won't be out of pocket.

Aside from the thrills and spills of the various Puddle Awards to be found here, Live Journal is choc full of interesting, friendly folks. I'm sure you'd make a welcome addition.

If you'd like to start a blog here, just go to LJ's homepage http://www.livejournal.com and follow the instructions there.

Let me know how you get on.

Hope that helps :)
