The Wonderful/Awful Life: Round 3 (VOTE... or I throw rocks at this panda)

Welcome to OtherDraft: The Wonderful/Awful Life Game.

Over the past couple weeks, sixteen players have put together a mock profile of your possible life. They've picked where you would live, who your companions are, what you do, what you eat, and a number of other things. Now it's up to you to decide whose wonderful life is ideal for you.

Look through each person's responses and pick which you'd like to live most.

The losers of the first round, meantime, are now competing for awful life. So it's up to you to pick what life you'd least likely want to have (from the "Awful Life" group).

1.JasonF
2.Das: Wins despite JLH

Awful

1.CShot
2.Groucho

except for Das... JLH is not pet worthy.. quite homely and annoying in my opinion. My shark would have used her like a toothpick and then you'd get "favors" from Rebecca Romijin...

*sigh*

And JasonF... overall better picks.

OK. So I'm the President, but if I vote against <b>Thor</b>, I'm voting that I don't want his life. But that means I'm voting for him to be my President, but I don't want his life, which is to be President, but I'm the President, but *KABOOM*

I'll go with:
<b>JasonF</b> (hard to pass up Evan Rachel Wood, but Sinatra seals the deal)
<b>das Monkey</b>

<b>Cshot</b> (Damn tough. Noam Chomsky and the creepy Dora comment almost seals it, but I like the Wa Ho, and Babies R Us is an inspired choice)
<b>Groucho</b>

There's a typo in the first matchup ("JasonF vs. lordwow Damfino")

Wonderful Life

1. JasonF. lordwow Damfino has some fine choices, but JasonF's life just seems more fun.

2. das Monkey. Very tough matchup, but ultimately I think I'd rather groom Jennifer Love Hewitt over Lassie.

Awful Life

1. Cshot. Both are the pure definition of "Awful," but the Diarreha Shake clinches the deal.

2. Groucho. This isn't just a vanity vote, this life is a lot worse than Fincher Fan's, which has quite a few "wonderfuls" about it...mostly the profession.

Drat. I missed round 2. I hope I didn't lose by 1. I kept waiting for round 1 to be updated but figured bus was being the bus.

Again, leave my Panda alone, he lost and he's upset.

Wonderful:
JasonF vs. lordwow: JasonF. Quite frankly, I'm disappointed in those of you who are voting for lordwow and remind you that it's not too late to edit your post and change your votes. Or did you really want to have to spend the rest of your life hanging around with Steve "Journey" Perry?
