    I can’t vote, because if I did, I would vote for my own picture in an act of raw, unscrupulous self-promotion, and of course I would only do something like that anonymously, so people wouldn’t see what a wretched and pathetic act it was.

    Wait, did I just say that aloud?

    • Dave says:

      No, you didn’t. So it’s all good 🙂 You only wrote it as a comment so it will be shared with posterity. But don’t worry, we won’t hold it against you! (P.S. I’m a huge fan of the “fast and bulbous, the mascara snake” conversation as well, so yours ranks wayyy up there!)

    You were so on ambien when you wrote this, Dave. And I thought we’d talked about my not wanting to be called “Lizzie.” Brings back too many memories of kids teasing me on the playground 😉 Though I get what you were doing. With that part anyway. Mostly I’m just confused.

    I’m with diddy and can’t vote. Not because I’d pick my own, but because they’re all so awesome and each for its own reason. Though I do lean toward Rainer because he looks so haunted and I think he really wants to be picked. Poor man. The soul of a poet and all that.

    Fun post 😀

    p.s. What I really wanted to say is that I’m voting for the dancing pickle. duh.

    • amb says:

      The pickle gets my vote, too. I can swoon over Idris anytime! 🙂

      • Dave says:

        Somehow I don’t doubt that for a second. You’re the most accomplished and prodigious swooner I know, a regular swooner-in-chief, my lady!

        *Regular as in the old people definition of “proficient”. I should have said an exceptional swooner-in-chief but my 80-year-old southern roots got the best of me 🙂

        Happy Monday at 2:30pm, Amber! It’s gonna be a good week!

        • amb says:

          You’re on ambien right now, aren’t you? 😉

        • Liz says:

          you have 80-year-old southern roots? Am going to assume you’re not talking hair here. And also assume that amb’s second comment is spot on.

          • Dave says:

            Haha, even though I’ve been known to sleep into the late morning, I was not on ambien by that point. Just feeling corybantic, maybe because today I submitted the paperwork for a sweet new job as UCSD Extension’s new MCAT instructor, and got two interview invitations in the past week: University of Central Florida (a new school that’s becoming a rising star) and University of Arizona – Phoenix medical school, which I received today. Woohoo. Mayo, on the other hand, summarily rejected me almost immediately… I guess I won’t be making an interview trip out to the land of the Liz. 😦

          • Liz says:

            Congrats on the good news, Dave! What does Mayo know anyway? Its name is short for a salad dressing-type spread–I bet they don’t even practice real medicine. (haha and just kidding should any Mayo folk be reading this. You are a highly respected institution and I get that.) You’ll get to Minnesota eventually. Or I’ll come your way. At the very least, we’ll meet when you marry amb and I am in the bridal party 😉

    • Dave says:

      You’re quite the clinician, Liz, and your assessment was correct!

      Note the absence of the second i and rejoice that nobody called you “Lizzie”, I would never do such a thing! I simply pluralized Liz into “Lizzes” because the world is a wonderful place with a select few people who share your incomparable spirit.

      Rainer is haunted. I read that as “wants to be pickled” though, which made it even funnier.

      Dancing pickle FTW!
