Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I'm starting to think Farland may not be the best choice long term. He is far too busy. Well, he did step down once before because the contest was eating up too much of his writing time. This is gross speculation on my part, but I would imagine that he's only stepped in to get the contest through t...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Also haven't heard anything. Checked spam filter and nothing there. Illustrator finalist were announced May 9th. Are the finalists always announced? I suspect Joni contacts finalist before announcing them, but I could be wrong. Keeping fingers crossed. Finalists get a phone call. Semi's and any lef...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I had a dream last night that they sent out the results (including the winners for the quarter) and francisbruno and Martin were two of the winners (didn't see the third). Don't rely too much on my dream-state prognostications however, because I ended up with a Silver HM, even though I've already g...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I think I need to see a shrink regarding this. Now I'm cringing whenever I see a new message in my inbox. Dreading the email of SF rather than the phone call of Finalist. I think I'll need to be treated for PTSD when this is over.

Strange dream last night. Was a finalist and then one of the final 3 for the quarter. Then it turned out they took the winners from all four quarters and made them battle it out like in the hunger games.

Personally, I think the replacement judges were tied up. A few conferences going on for the past couple of weeks. I would suspect some results this week, though.
