Let's have a ROLL CALL then. Here are the folks I know are still in. If I miss your name, add it in and repost as I'm not always sure who's entered which quarter.


I was a close-to-last-minute paper submitter, so I'm still in too.

Apparently I'm still in unless I missed an early rejection. I submitted 12/31/2011.

I'm still in, though I'm more convinced my submission was lost. I submitted electronically on 24 December.

I hate to sound pessimistic, but the roll call of who hasn't been rejected yet is getting to be long enough that I fear final rejections are more and more likely in greater numbers than I had been hoping for. But then again NNINN (an attempt to abreaviate the "No News Is No News").

Think HMs and Semi's and Finalists.
For there is death in the sound of it, and a glamorous fatality, like silver pennons downrushing at sunset, or a dying fall of horns along the road to Ronceveaux.

The only easy day was yesterday.

I love Monty Python quotes!


I'm in also, still.
Patrick also, I think. I'm not sure who else submitted Q1.

Let me think...If I'm not mistaken steffenwolf, kyle, strycher, Alex, Thomas, Jess, Juliana...
Probably around 40 of us, if my statistics hold.
OK, I'm stopping this. Have to finish my Q2. Just finished first draft, in fact. wotf010

Cool - more of us are still in than I thought. :) And how could I forget the gator??

Anyhow, I certainly didn't mean to imply anything one way or another if I left anyone's name off. I just thought having a roll call would make for an upbeat distraction from the feeling of waiting for the axe to fall. wotf006

Just in case the wave hits early, ya know.

And, since this song has been stuck in my head ever since this thread was renamed, I figure it's time to spread it around a little. When I read this thread, especially on results days, I hear...

Listen to the rhythm of rejection rain
Telling me just what a fool I've been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again

Oh, listen to the falling rain
Jibber jabber, jibber jabber
Oh, oh, oh, listen to rejection pain
Jibber jabber, jibber jabber

And yes, I'm old.



OH, I love it. And I'm singing it. And, yes, I fear it dates me, too.
