Motto Election

The structure often looks far different in the light of day and it looks better in pictures than in real life and close up.

Motto Voting (see below)

From the VAULT
Best TV Pilots ever aired

Hyperion-X 970 (mostly just incoherent ramblings about things that piss me off, but does include a great section on how Women are like Architecture)


Starting Monday I am going to be gone for a little while. I definitely need a break from this place, although my absence will (sadly) not be a vacation. I have fallen behind on some of my other writing projects, and I also need to spend some time on the design for the Hyperion Institute store. In fact, I'll probably work more than I do now.

The point is: I won't be here. Not to worry: in my absence I have recruited the finest writers in the land to do guest posts. I am setting them all up Sunday night to auto-post, so you will be well entertained and satisfied. (But no happy endings.)

However, while I am gone I cannot actually change the motto every day like I do now. I need a permanent motto for the rest of the month, and I thought I would let you vote. I have five mottos below. (I originally had 16, but Kaida told me that you people are like toddlers: too much information and you will get overstimulated). All you have to do is pick the one you like best, and then copy and paste it in the Comments.

Note: you CAN leave a write-in Comment, but you then have to hope everyone who Comments after you likes it and votes that way too, since the motto will be chosen Democratically. (Which means I can be bought.)

Mottos to Vote for:

1) Where Dreams go to Die

2) The Best Mendacity in all the World

3) Home for Perverts and Thugs....we call them Thugverts

4) Gonorrhific!

5) Where Orphans are Strangled just to see You Smile

That's it! You may only vote once, unless you bribe me; then you can vote multiple times. Good Luck.

[This section can be found permanently in Institutionalized, and I just wanted to point out that Blogger's software thinks that the plural of motto should be mottoes. Go figure.]
