The Great Wednesday Compare- FINALE
The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Anne Shirley VERSUS Marilla Cuthbert), with a final score of 8-1 was Marilla Cuthbert.
This is bizarre! I have to say, I did not predict that at all. The winner of the Great Wednesday Compare #7, Marilla Cuthbert, beat the winner of the Great Wednesday Compare #8, Anne Shirley, and by a landslide. That both these women ended up on top in the first place is strange enough, but Mr. Miyagi beating the Karate Kid? I didn't see that coming.
But I'm glad the final outcome still held a surprise for me. It's a good note to go out on. Yes, I'm retiring the Great Wednesday Compares. At least for now. I've done books, I've done bookish things, and I've done characters and I think I'm done. It's been a lot of fun and I love that so many people played along. Thank you so much. In the meantime, stay tuned for my next weekly feature: drawing Victorian authors in inappropriate poses! No? How about recipes based on the Earth's Children series? Maybe not. Timothy Findley impersonations? I've got nothing.
