Anne reminded me yesterday that I’d never truly ended the Alpaca/Landsquid/Sky Shark battle in any sort of fashion.
For those of you too lazy to go and find the results of the poll (myself included), here’s how things resolved themselves.
30% of people voted for the Landsquid.
35% of people voted for the Alpaca.
35% of people voted for the Sky Shark.
Now, I was pleased that everyone was so close, but Anne informs me that the Sky Shark should have won handily and only didn’t because Ian was strong-arming people into voting for the Alpaca, and I’ve got a Landsquid who won’t come and help me do anything because he’s sulking with a box of Cheez-Its and a bottle of whiskey under the stairs. So.
As to the Comfort Book theory, my theory was that people’s comfort books would either be something they read very early on in life or would be something that they’d read during a difficult time period, but I don’t think I got enough data to make any sort of conclusions on that front.
