Fifty-something votes were cast, and I think we have some clear winners. To be honest, I was surprised. I assumed that the daughters/family options were going to be safe, wholesome choices that appealed to many, but only 25% picked those options (we live in a cynical world!). The "8 Hour Matrix Movie Marathon with Neighbor" received only 4 votes, one from my neighbor (of course), who has this awesome TV--but that's for another blog entry. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the purely self-indulgent activities were the winners: 26% went to "Go to the beach and do nothing" while 32% went to "Go snowboard and send you all a photo." making this the absolute winner.
I know this wasn't an easy task--many of you had your fingers on the "I hate you" option for a while before voting for any of the others. Only 5 people gave in to their bitter emotions and expressed their true feelings, an action which I applaud and promise to justify by sending a nice photo on February 3rd around 11:30 am to all of you, either from the top of the mountain or from my beach chair...just a few miles from your cozy gray cubicles.
Thank you all for taking the time!
