Re: Five Minute Rant

Louis, the Hatrack contest is anon, so they weren't critting you, just the story. Maybe they did that with everyone?
I've got my guess as to what story is yours and if I'm right you're in the opposite group as I. Thus I don't know if someone did line edits on all seven or not.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

This could be the elusive pattern.... could it not? Possibly. I know not all quarters line up their holidays as nicely as Q3 had, but given that one is coming up in a few days, and finalists haven't been notified, (although I'm not entirely convinced of this) that seems as likely a time as any for ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I think I've had these. If so, they're a bit stiffer than a saltine, and slightly less crispy, and there's no salt at all, not on top nor in the dough (ok, there probably is but I couldn't taste it). But they're not sweet, either. So what you're really saying is: http://www.klgoing.com/i/crap.jpg

A wheatmeal digestive? I do NOT want one of those. Personally, I'm not a s'mores fan. However, like 10-15 years ago there was a s'mores cereal on the market that I ate by the box load.

If Stewart wins, they'll write, "Stewart Baker, Head, Inside of".

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Marina,

Something I wonder about is the multiple quarter thing on Duo.

Martin has 3 stories reported there, but that's over 3 quarters.

For all Q1 folks, they've already removed their entry.

Because it fluctuates by quarter, how can we get an accurate number to guess with?
