So, dear readers. It has come to this.
My dear fiancee and I are in a contest. It’s on Facebook.
Despite our best efforts, we are losing. (As it turns out, going into a Facebook contest against a school teacher is not a fabulous idea, what with her being surrounded by little adoring Facebook accounts all day.)
We have tried a lot to win. I have plastered my entire social network, from Facebook to LinkedIn to Twitter. We’ve written emails. We’ve made phone calls. We’ve even canvassed the very, very rainy Boston Pride and Dyke March with flyers and candy in an effort to generate more votes from the core queer demographic.
But we are still behind. Now, would it be the end of the world if we didn’t win? No. Life would go on. Our wedding would still happen. But we like winning. And we like saving money. So we still want to win.
So I am asking for your help. In the off-chance that you haven’t voted, will you please vote? If you have, would you consider inviting your friends to vote? It takes 20 seconds, and you don’t have to sacrifice your Facebook soul or privacy to do it.
Everyone who votes gets free virtual gay cupcakes.
Please, do it for the cupcakes.*If you liked the format of this post, you’d probably like the blog Effing Dykes, from which I have blatantly borrowed the concept.
