we should make an attempt at some sort of tie-breaking procedure.

like, people not involved with the tie have to only pick one.  could even be a new thread.  if it's still a tie?  well, looks like it's a tie.

Yeah, let's not have such a big tie...

Maybe another poll for one week only with the first places?

Fixed that for you.  ;) ;D

So, just making sure I understand correctly, the results come in two hours? Is 12.40pm 40min past midday?
Just wanna know cause it's late and I'm tired... But I wanted to know the March topic before going to bed and the results at the same time.  :D

Can't stay up any longer, although looking forward to results.  Good luck Nora,  hope they help makeup for your horrible time lately. Sounds as though The  Miseries of Nora might suit the March theme. Bless you for keeping a sense of humour. ;)
