Update: I made the Top 5 in the ChangeEffect story contest, in which the winner gets a 3-day, 2-night trip to Chicago (and a Cubs game). For some background, I’ve written about it already here and here.

Since this is the final round, all previous votes have been cleared and the whole thing starts over. So if you’re inclined to vote for me again — and I sincerely hope you are so inclined — head back over there for one last vote. You get one vote per computer and email address.

Click here to read the story I submitted, about my grandfather.

Go here to read all the stories… if you have, like, a half-day to waste. Seriously, it would take awhile. Your best bet is to trust me when I tell you that mine should win. While we’re at it, you should also trust me when I tell you that I am humble, generous, ruggedly handsome, and a fantastic dancer.

And here is where you go to vote for my story. I appreciate it.

(And while we’re on the topic, if you’re interested, you can visit our family blog to see a picture of my granddad. He’s the older gentleman in the white shirt and suspenders. As you might expect.)

OK. Carry on…
