Oscar Contest 2009
For the seventh year running, I'm hosting an Oscar "Pick 'Em" contest over at my website. Every year the winner receives a custom, one-of-a-kind sock monkey creation. (Previously: 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008.) This year the prize is a pair of Batman and Joker sock monkeys. (That Joker monkey is hands-down the most disturbing thing I've ever crafted.) Everybody's welcome to enter!

Ha! This is great. BTW: You need to update your relationship status in your profile (says single) because the way to a man's heart is definitely sock puppets and I was crushed to read further that you, sock-puppet-goddess, are married!

Er, I meant sock monkeys (blush)

Eek! Sorry to have gotten your hopes up; I swear I set it to taken before. (Don't tell the husband.) :)

You are a sick but very talented sock-monkey-maker. And I mean that in a wholly complimentary way. :-)

You know, if any of y'all want to post it to the front page, please have at it. Of course, that would diminish your own chances of winning... so I can see there being a conflict of interest. :)

Your site seems to be down at the moment.

It's fixed now. My host evidently thought that the surge in traffic over the past 24 hours was grounds for turning off mod_security, which caused my .htaccess to throw up all over the place. Or something.

I wish I could unsee that Joker monkey. Good job.

And the contest has ended! Thanks to all the MeFites who entered. I ended up with nearly 500 entries, and for a while there I thought I was going to end up with a 140-way tie. Luckily "The Departures" really threw people off. I ended up with two guys getting perfect scores, and this guy won on the tiebreak.
