I dunno Thought I’ve been getting my HMs or Rs about a month and a week after deadline, but maybe I’m wrong or Q1 is different because of the ceremony and stuff...just wondering.

In my experience it’s usually closer to 2.5 months from the deadline. Q1 usually does move faster (slower- I had it backwards) because of the gala but I don’t expect results until March, maybe April.

You had me worried there. If a 'Thursday' is close at hand, I need to stock up on brownies and hide under the table. Maybe I better start stocking up just in case. wotf005

Probably not for awhile. Q3 and Q4 have the fastest turnaround time. Q1 is generally slowest.

Dang it, got all jittery for a second. Hopefully it's not like last year though. Looking through the posts, it seems like it took extra long to get results. And so far, Dave has posted nothing on his blog about where he is in the process. wotf017

It's not unusual to have Thursday blues
Checking our emails waiting for news
As the day wanes and nothing comes in
We wait until next week to do it again

So you're saying I can go ahead and eat this batch of brownies and bake another when the actually Thursday shows up?

Never mind, I already ate them.

So just an FYI, I've been in contact with Joni and she said "we will have results in March, maybe sooner." A lot quicker than I expected, but yeah, apparently that's a thing? So um... prepare to twitch and all that. wotf009

Ok, yes, that definitely sounds worthy of twitching. Only two weeks left 'til March too.

I just attended Superstars with Kary English. Don't start twitching just yet--she's still reading Q1 entries, which means Dave doesn't have the whole batch of potentials sent to him. Best of success when he does get them all!

Okay, control my twitching. Be patient. Especially since mine is on the very bottom of that pile, having sent it at 11:57pm PT.

It's cool to come here at least once a day
Information injection in a cerebral way
Every little tidbit is hoovered in a blink
Filling in the blanks helps me think

Today is Thursday the most special of seven
No news is no news is that hell or heaven
We all want to win so we spend time on line
Something more than r would be something so fine
HM-1
