in thread The sort of fiction you're most likely to find me reading:

Must... resist... temptation to... define... ironic.

Hmm, life was much simpler when I didn't know the difference between "their", "there", and "the're", or the actual meaning of words like "ironic", or terms like "begging the question".... I blame books.

    Hmm..I actually meant it as 'ironic' in the "poignantly contrary to what is expected" sense of the term as I rarely have any real connection to the content of the polls (so much so that I had actually turned off the voting booth from my frontpage nodelets) and here was a poll that actually reflected what I was doing in real life.

    However, given that one would have to know this context to make "ironic" an accurate description, I suppose "coincedental" would have been more appropriate.

    I sit corrected.

    Oh....and Hail Eris ;-)
