And we are back

Okay, seriously?

The poll has apparently failed or been hopelessly corrupted.
We'll start over with a new poll every day. You will get one vote per IP address per day. We will provide stats at the end of each day for updates.
Since today is essentially over for our English friends, the new dates and rules are as follows:

1. Vote for yourself or your best friend or your kid or your dogwalker on the poll provided.

2. Voting will be extended until April 23rd, so we get a nice full week in.

3. If you are bitter and unhappy about the votes lost, well, so are we, kind of. Suck it up.

4. We DO want to reward faithfulness, so you may vote once a day every day.
5. There will be no dangling chads, no sniveling about the winner, or I will send you to your room--got it?

POLL MOVED TO TOP OF BLOG DUE TO FACTORS OF CHRONIC DORKINESS-------GO VOTE HERE. Poll will not change locations but subject line will indicate new poll with dates after the updates.

While I respect what you had to do...I've pestered family and friends to take the time to vote. Now thier time has been wasted. I doubt I'll regain the 70 or so I begged for. was fun to post anywho, and still a fun site to read.

Bitter, about a second chance to kick some dorkster butt!! I don't think so. That competitive demon you know, even if my story isn't as good.

I am so dorky, I voted for the zigman LOL. One for each day. Spread eagled in front of your aunt.

Reminded me of a skiing story my uncle told me. He was on the lift, and apparently a woman REALLy had to go to the bathroom down below. Now there are no leaves on the trees, so little does she know that she is visible. She didn't take off her skis, and ended up sliding out of the woods with her pants around her ankles. Zigmans story reminded me of that. Crack me up.

Firecracker LMAO.

ZigZagMan said...

you and I are on winter!! :)!!!!

let the games begin!! :)

winterskibunny said...

Zig, don't get to cocky now. LOL. I may have only one vote now, but I have my engines running.

Dorkesters, don't vote for yourself, vote for me. See my impassioned plea at

Sorry, Zig, I can't vote for you anymore. You are too stiff competition.

Puns intended!!

winterskibunny said...

Oops, before I leave the Zigman in the dust is it Prince AND Princess or

Prince OR Princess?

ZigZagMan said...

Game on Winter!! We are gonna dance!! :)

ZigZagMan said...'s spelled too, that prose...:)

Mert said...

You guys are cracking me up!

It's Prince OR Princess, not both.

"There can BE only one."

I'll vote for the first dork that can tell me what movie that is from. :D

winterskibunny said...


Too easy, you can look anything up on the web these days.

You owe me that vote if I am right.

Anyone else need any dorky tasks done for votes?

Mert said...

ROFL! Well, either way... who ever told me would be a dork, and you would get my vote.

You're a dork if you know the answer right off, or if you decided to google for the answer.

One vote, coming right up!;)

ZigZagMan said...

Holy ground winterskibunny...we dance here...nothing more....;)

winterskibunny said...

Oh, not those kind of tasks LOL.

Movie look ups, fashion photo of homemade dorky holiday wear as a kid, or tuff skin jeans photos.

Innocent stuff, not the perv stuff.

You already got me beat by 5, but you just don't know what you are dealing with. Plus my tough Doberman just woke me up with a sound that wakes most dog owners up that know what it is.

It is the sound of a tough Doberman who made like he went outside while it was pouring rain earlier but didn't, and barely made it to the bedroom door where IT DID COME OUT. What is it about the rain and Dobermans Jeesh? At least the other two are comfortably asleep and looking like business was taken care of.

From the winter rain forest of Maine. Hoping we aren't a federal disaster area all over again this year.

Ash said...

All right, who voted for me? it was really nice and all, but I didn't even post my pictures(cuz I'm the loser who does not own a scanner and didn't leave her house all weekend)

Don't waste your votes on me!

VOTE FOR CRSE! Panflutemaster rocks!

(this political advertisement was not piad for by CRSE, merely typed by Ash, who is not in any way affiliated with the counting of the votes, just wants her favorite to win)

Aunt Jackie said...

Well it was surely a disappointment to find out that the whole thing had been a sham. I thought for once I was really not a loser.

Well have fun you guys and good luck... I'll check back when I can.

crse said...

Ash I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! You rock.... the rest of you do too of course...

Mert said...

Aunt Jackie, don't give just yet ,we have another 5 day right?

Mert said...

Don't give UP I meant to say- err... type.

ZigZagMan said...

may the best dork win!!!! i was ready to give up last night.....but then winter more or less caled me a sissy so I had to man up..:)

Crawlspace said...

Dear Dorkbloggers,

It with great regret and heavy heart I convey the following to you:

That auto-playing music thing, really should go.

I am saying this for my own good.

Oh, yeah. And I voted for someone.

In other news, I think I have grit in my eyes.

AuntJackie said...

I can't keep coming back to a wiped out poll every time I visit the page! This is too hard!

I'm really kind of re-thinking this...

crse said...

ok aunt jackie. At the end of the day, we have to switch the poll over. So people can vote every day. Your VOTES ARE SAVED THOUGH have not been tampered with and have been distributed in original form so no funny business occurs. We will add them together and provide total updates on a regular basis.

Mert said...

This is pretty exciting... to see some real live voting in action, good luck guys!

On a side note... I disabled auto play on the theme song. If anyone wants it back on, I'll think of something.

I know! We could have a poll!

Just kidding ;)

winterskibunny said...

Oh thank goodness!! I actually had a dream where the background music was the dorkbloggers theme all the way through LOL.

However, I did just turn off the speakers when I went to the site, because the song does crack me up, and I like to listen sometimes.

You know, I just now thought of the story that might have had me the winner.

winterskibunny said...

Now some technical poll questions. I love that you guys are doing this, because you can probably tell me what you did wrong later, when I try this on my site one day (g).

My husband wants to vote for me, but it looks like the only vote coming through is from me. Is this because the poll is blocking out from the same IP address now?

Are dogs allowed to vote (g). I could train mine to hit the button.

I don't think I am going to be able to rally the troops to beat Zig or Woods, though I am trying to give it a go.

Their stories are pretty Fing funny:) Oh and I loved the dentist tech "feel sorry for my husband" story too.

My husband looked at me with a puzzled expression when I read that to him, and then I had to do an explanation for him.

winterskibunny said...

I do dorky stuff for votes!!

winterskibunny said...


Ash said...

Hey, I like auto playing music. I use it on my blog!


ZigZagMan said...

I wonder just how detailed an explanation Winter gave...were visuals involved?? :)

winterskibunny said...

A miming was involved, so yes a visual (g). Still didn't quite get it, so then an audio was needed.

Gotta sit down with him one day and explain it all (g).

winterskibunny said...

Sigh, Zig you are leaving me in the dust. Might as well start giving you my votes.

I was hoping your loyal following would give up, and my few cumulative per day would pass you.

Doesn't seem meant to be. We dance again in June. (if they blog staff can stand it again LOL)

ZigZagMan said...

It's way to earliy to start wrinting speaches yet is still on.......June ofcourse...the lovely wife enters the fray though...:)

ZigZagMan said...
