Update, 7/27/12: Because I’ve realized that I’m playing with fire by using copyrighted images, I’m removing all copyrighted pictures (or pictures that I’m unsure about) from this blog. Since this profoundly alters this particular post, I’m making note of it here. Sorry about that. #1 and #2 from this contest have had to be removed. They were a picture of Mission Vao, from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and a picture of Buffy and Spike, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Thanks so much to everyone who voted and made the beginning of my little project such great fun!
If you check out my And This Is Me page, you’ll see that now it features my lovely new portrait. This way people will see exactly what I look like, and will therefore be able to read what I have written without copious amounts of angst.
My Hushing Nun avatar will remain the same, though, in case you were worried. I like it too much to drop it.
Next week we’ll see the next phase of my Blog Improvement Project. “What could it be?” you ask. “How could she possibly improve upon perfection?” Just keep your pants on, as my grandmother would say. Keep your pants on.
