Please Vote in My Two Polls

Please vote in my companion polls about what you consider the most important trait in a long-term significant other and in a fling, one-night-stand.

Please vote once in each poll, and leave me a note to let me know that you voted because I'm going to be giving Random Prizes to commenters soon.

And I'd also be interested in reading in the comments if there's something else you consider more important in either category that I didn't include.

Here's the short set of questions I e-mailed to book club members yesterday, along with my own responses.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
