For the second time in the span of a month, I have officially lost an ugly sweater contest.

Thanks again to all of you who voted. For those that didn’t, don’t worry. I doubt your vote would have helped. The winner collected a whopping 273 votes to my 124.

Now that the contest is over and the winner’s full name has been revealed, I’m hoping she will agree to speak with me for a Q&A. With any luck, she’s reading this now. And is probably starting to think I’m crazy. She’s probably right.

Nevertheless, I’m honored to own the second ugliest sweater in the Triangle.
