Well, second place is still good, right? But once again, a beautiful, thin, mooncloth-robe wearing Blood Elf triumphs over the mesomorphic Draenei--c'est la guerre, eh Ceniza? It's all in fun, and JD's recommendation of Ceniza in her off-beat attire was a nice surprise. Obiviously I mog for my own silly pastime. But these are no sour grapes, no sirree! I had thought when I spread the word to my guildmates and game buddies that sheesh, I really could be using these powers of persuasion for a better cause. And then it hit me -I would. I made a bet with myself that for every vote I got I would donate a sum of money to a worthy cause. I mentioned this only to JD, because, and he understood immediately, I didn't want Ceniza to become a charity case. I was curious to see what would happen without any influence of that nature.
And, I wasn't sure exactly what cause to donate the money too. Granted I have many causes that I feel deserve my hard-earned coin. But then Neri's dear friend passed, and it become clear.
So: Click here for Results (Congratulations Korla!)
Click here for Dry July
Ceniza's ensemble received twenty-two votes, so for every vote I will donate $5 to Neri's cause. I made the donation to Dry July - point of fact, I don't think I can promise not to have a cocktail or two--it is summer after all, and though I should clear my head, and it's a fabulous idea, a cash donation is the best I can manage now.
So- cheers to Neri for her fun site and contest, applause to all the participants, and in my opinion, Ceniza is still the hottest mage in Azeroth. Now to go break the news to her...hope she's out of lighter fluid.
Postscript: Since a Lannister always pays her debts, I still owe Navi something for her entry in the Road Trip. Working on it, Navi!
