    Bethanya says Dude! I know! we are TOTALLY secret twins!!

    Jenica – Singh may be worth reading (I need to check her out) but a Roberts book is ALWAYS good for a few bracket choices!!! The world is upside down!!

    I just tried to vote in Round 1: Set 2 of 4.

    After I clicked “VOTE” for each pair I received the message, “You Have Already Voted For This Poll,” with a different “Poll ID #” for each pair.
    What does this mean? Did my votes count or not?

    Kay, try clearing your cookies. That might help.

    Here is a Secret Twin Quiz:

    —Were you an English Major/ Creative Writing Minor?
    —Did you read L.M Montgomery (your total fav being The Blue Castle) The Baby-Sitters Club and SVH/SVU while growing up?
    —Have you not read J.D. Robb’s book, but thought it was good for the bracket

    Haha. Let me know!

    @Bethanya –
    Am I your long-lost older sister who was part of the terrible plan to separate you twins and sworn to secrecy and lived in denial but it’s all surfacing through cryptic dreams and waking nightmares? 

    -Majored in English with an almost minor in Women’s Studies (2 credits shy and couldn’t be bothered by senior year.)
    -Read all of L.M. Montgomery and my fav is A Tangled Web.  (But have you read Ladies of Missalonghi?  Total rip-off of The Blue Castle.)  Loved BSC and wanted to be Claudia but am rather a boring mix of Kristin and Mary Anne.  Don’t even get me started on SVH.
    -Read all of J.D. Robb’s books

    Or does this apply to 95% of the readers of this blog?

    @Sonoma Lass

    Thanks for the advice. I did empty the cookies and tried to vote again. The same message appeared; the “Poll ID #s” were the same.

    HELP! I really want to vote. I had the same trouble last year, too.

    Kay: Wow. I’m no expert, I just know that Jane said it identified voters by IP address and cookies.  Unless you share an IP address with someone else who voted ahead of you (that happened at my house), it should be a cookie issue.

    If you have a smart phone, you might try using that. I know some people who are voting that way.

    Kay, I just tweeted Jane and she says that she can try to clear your IP address out of the voting log. You should email her (unless you are on Twitter, in which case you could DM it).

    Kay Webb Harrison says:

    Thanks for all the advice. I only have a desktop computer.

    I just emailed Jane asking what an IP address is. Even my husband, the computer science professor doesn’t know. I have learned not to feel stupid when I don’t know things about fields I’m not familiar with. I can still learn new things, and I know how to use the subjunctive mood in Spanish.

    LMAO. How wonderful to see triplets reuniting on a blog.

    I voted on NR too. She always makes it so far…

    Good luck Kay.

    @ Bethanya – OMG you’re my secret baby I had during amnesia!!!!

    Fact – I am too old for that literature set – my formative years track with the emergence of VC Andrews and the revival of Laura Inglas Wilder.

    Fact – I dropped out of high school but was totally all about English/Creative Writing and took community college courses in same.

    Fact – Did read the Robb book, but completely chose other authors based on that same criteria!!!

    Obvious conclusion – that date with the high school quarterback that didn’t go all the way because he was too Xtian really DID go all the way – and I have blocked your birth all these years from trauma and experimental medications provided secretly by my toothless felon of a father!! I am so sorry he sold you to those people!!! (PS, your father grew up icky. I’m sorry for that too, I married a geek instead, you’ll love him!)

    Safe words – time69 (we did NOT! – I think!)
