And the Finalists Are……


Hey Howdy Hey Heart Breakers!

Are you all excited to see the finalists for our Valentine’s Day Contest?!  Wookiee, Bunny & I have been hard at work pouring over every single entry you guys submitted to our TSTO Addicts Valentine’s Day Contest and the ONLY thing we could all easily agree on is you guys have some AMAZING talent!  As Bunny would say…holy frakk can you guys write!  Seriously, we were BLOWN away by the caliber of some of your poems!  You all deserve a round of applause for you’re AWESOME poems!  We plan on displaying each and every poem for all readers to see once the contest voting is over!

Now back to the finalists.  It was so hard for us to narrow it down to just 10!  So after much debating we’ve decided to make extend the number of finalists to 25.  Seriously you guys have some AWESOME talent! (and we were overwhelmed by submissions)  You think since we extended it to 25 it’d be easier to pick the finalists huh?  Not a chance.  With so many entries we read and re-read each submission no less than a dozen times each!  But enough rambling…we finally narrowed it down to the top 25!

Want to know who they are?

Because of the length of this post the voting poll will be placed here for easy access to it if you’d like to vote again.  However, I do hope you will read all of the submissions before voting.  🙂

Voting is now closed.  We will announce the winners shortly.  Thank you for voting!

Lil Bunny Foo Foo

There was a lil house in the middle of the woods…
A lil ol’ Bunny by the window stood…
Saw a hunter sneaking by…
So she ran outside, attacked the hunter, looked around to ensure no one was watching, and had a lovely stew for dinner. (It was a bit gamey.)

No? That wasn’t how that lil ditty went? Hmmmmm. I guess I just remember it differently. Lol.


Well, HI! My name is Bunny. You may remember me from posts such as “I WANT A BABY”, “Nerd Alert”,  “MY ADDICTION HAS COST ME EVERYTHING!”, “Addicts How To: STITCH ME UP DOC!!…”, and then there was the best one ever… “Top 10 Things EA DOESN’T Want You To Know…” (still makes me giggle).

Those are just a handful of the insane words that spill out of my brain now and then. But wait…THERE’S MORE!!! (click if you dare enter the inner workings of a crazy Bunny’s mind).

Two dimensional LOVE in a 3-D world

Oh!  Chest pains…. I think I’m having a heart attack… too much pink drowning my senses with their sublime cheesiness.  Melodramatics created…. must find man card…..  Oh wait, it’s not angina pectoris at all.  I just was choking on a chili cheese frito.  Y’all can completely ignore that random stream of words, ok?

So, it’s 2D Tuesday here at Addicts and I figured it’s about time to share some more “art” with you.
