Vote for me!

I've been nominated for a Spintingler Award again, this time in the best-reviewer category, and thanks for the good people at Spinetingler for their consideration. Vote here; I know you'll do the right thing.

Thanks. I promise, if elected, to display firm resolve in all public statements involving international matters, just as my counterparts in Mr. Harper's current government do.

Done. In bocca al lupo

Thanks. And thanks for the Italian lesson. That is a splendid way of saying, "It's in the bag."

Er... it actually means break a leg. But you're right, it's better than In culo alla balena .

I did vote in all categories.
Since when not having read the works/not knowing the names is a good reason to leave your preference blank?

Good luck, Peter. Well deserved.

Ah, so Simona was wishing me good luck. Why did I think it meant "in the bag"? Probably because of an ambiguous usage example I found. In any case, thanks.

Thanks, Paul, and the same to you.

(Paul is nominated in the sort-story category, for anyone who happens to be reading this.)

At home, at work, in coffeehouses, in libraries!

Thanks.

Thanks Marco for your follow-up. Since I started, I should also tell you that the appropriate way to answer is Crepi il lupo! (may the wolf die). I have no idea where this comes from, but I've always liked it and I agree with Marco that it is nicer than the expression he quotes. I think that between wolves and whales, we have you covered, Peter. We'll be waiting for the outcome of the elections on May 1st.

Already voted before I saw this post Peter... nice to see you (deservedly) nominated.

Let's just say I think I voted. The final result was inconclusive. Since I ended up on a screen saying "you can only vote once", I assume I have.

My ballot of course, remains a secret. But let's just say that my voting was not wildly unpredictable.

Many thanks, Craig. You're a gent.

Seana, I am proud of you for preserving the sanctity of the secret ballot. The people thank you.

Simona, In bocca al lupo/Crepi il lupo! is indeed a marvelous sequence. I prefer not to imagine the analogous response to in culo alla balena.

I voted for you, so where's my envelope of cash?

I deal in municipal services rather than cash. I promise your street will be ploughed first after the next snowstorm.

Ha! I'll hold you to it, pal!

That's snow, not lava. And Al Gore, winner of the first Nobel Prize for public relations, tells us the world is warming up, so I suspect I won't have to pay off for a while.
