|But, Betty Keira, we're not going to make you wear creepily short imitation silk shorts and win the tournament. We're just asking you to make Dennis Hopper quit the hooch.|
Anyway, though we're casual here at The Uncrushable Jersey Dress about all things sports-related, we understand passion and obsession. Those wild-eyed March Madness watchers are our soul-cousins. (Take a long, hard look in that mirror Bettys.)
|Betty Keira's eyes became glazed over when Today Show segments were interrupted by speculations on whether Kim Kardashian's bracket had been well thought out. Did she seriously think that Old Dominion had a chance against Butler? But, Eureka! Betty Keira cried. How gorgeous to do it with Betty books!|
So, we're starting our own playoffs (Inspired by Brilliant Betty Magdalen!). Single elimination, head-to-head contests. I've got thirteen divisions of ten-ish books each. We'll go through two divisions each week--picking winners and duds and advancing our favorites into other matches. Arguments will ensue. Rivalries will begin. Heat. Anger. Love. Obsession. It will be just like a Mexican novella!
It is bound to take much longer than a month but what fun! We'll have an undisputed champion! (snort)
So here we go:
Sister Peters in Amsterdam vs. Nurse in Holland (aka A Match for Sister Maggy and Amazon in an Apron)
Blow Hot, Blow Cold (aka Surgeon from Holland/Visiting Surgeon/Visiting Consultant) vs. Tempestuous April
Damsel in Green vs. Fate is Remarkable
Tulips for Augusta vs. Tangled Autumn
The Fifth Day of Christmas vs. Tabitha in Moonlight
Vote for your favorite one in each of the match-ups. Feel free to fight (in a well-bred manner, naturally). The most votes will go against winners in other divisions. The second division of the week will be posted on Tuesday.
Have at it!
