In response to toytrumpet's comment:
I think it has something to do with "guilt by association"? Does that make sense? Not association with me, of course, but - - well, you can figure out the rest.
Anyway, the fun of it all has been spoiled by your lack of publicity of the contest, waiting until now, the eleventh hour, to mention it after your initial announcement. Afterall, we are busy ladies, some of us withoutside jobs, most of us with extended families we have to cook and look out for, soaps to watch (you know how that is, afterall you have DWS), and I have my shopping and hunting for the bargains tucked away on the backs of store shelves - and then there is my exensive gardening (the butterfly bushes, you know).
You might as well declare yourself the winner, since I don't think there'll be any other participation. I have no idea what "prize" is at stake here, but it's a sad victory when it's been rigged in this way in your favor. With the holidays coming, perhaps you'll come up with a more organized contest we could all take part in. Maybe a rhyming game, I'm good at that, and the girls have joined in a rhyming day I held in the past.
Trumpet, three things:
1) With all the excuses youre making the last few days, no offense, but youre starting to sound like bostondottie. Is that the kind of reputation you want for yourself around here? I would hope not
2) A contest around the holidays is a great idea. One problem though: It's my busy time of the year. I'll be preoccupied putting together the RoyGBiv Winter Freak Festival (the 2nd biggest event on the Biv Year calendar...taking place in January). Biv fanatics across the nation and around the world are depending on me. If I try organizing a contest in here at the same time, I may spreading myself too thin
3) Ive already declared Robin the "tt 10K" contest winner. Way to go, Robin! Please step forward and accept your prize
