Please vote in my celebratory 1000 post poll!

Ok, the time has come, I've hit the big 1-0-0-0! So, to celebrate, I'm going to attempt another poll. This poll is of epic proportions, if I do say so myself! So celebrate with me, and share your thoughts!

And if you read this part, holla! (aka, send me a pm) Just answer this easy riddle: What has a mouth, but cannot eat, has a bank, but no money, and moves, but has no legs?

I'm scared I might one day understand the Friday question - if that ever happened I know I'd tipped over the edge.

P.S. Congrats on reaching 1000!!

Well, considering the fact that I am usually the first one logged in Fridays and therefore post the Friday question, the chance of it ever making sense is slim to none I would say

I voted for the Friday Question, because I never know what it is I'm asking. Which is why I ask them.

I voted "other" because I keep having that dream. You know, the one where you click "post quick reply" and suddenly you are naked in front of your Sunday school class and reciting the Preamble to the Constitution but can't remember the words and end up mixing in the Pledge of Allegience, and then your dead Grandma tells you it is too hot and you should put on some clothes, but the threads all unravel when you try to get dressed, and then you are running down a long dark hallway but the thing behind you is getting closer and the faster you run, the slower you move, and then you trip over a rat, snake, or giant spider (choose whatever scares you) and it turns to look at you with glowing red devil eyes, and then ....

I'll have to go with donuts. First there was Duke giving out donuts with all his karma, then there was donut day at MobileRead (the 2nd of each month as I remember), then there was Duke's glazed donut avatar, and now GraceKrispy has added donuts to her avatar. So I would say fear of a lack of donuts would top the list.

Other notables are Zelda's shums, psych's laddy by the door, and Marc's gibbon.

Grace, I'm holding out until all of the options are out. You know how these polls go, there is always a request for another option and then the poll fairy has to come and fix things.

WDE.

Congrats on your milestone #1000 post GraceK!

I had to vote disappearing members. I was going to ask about adding the fear of getting "keelhauled" and then it reminded me of tirsales, who seems to have disappeared! I do worry you know
