What the HELL was I thinking!

In all honesty, I thought this contest would draw MAYBE ten entries.
This morning as I dragged my sorry daylight savings time ass from under the old duvet I seriously thought I'd just delete the post cause it wouldn't get very much response.

I'm obviously clue free and need a clue gun, clue stick, clue wheel and maybe just a clue knee to the groinal region.

Over 100 entries!
ARGHHHHHHHHHHH.

Ok, I said we'd do it, and we will. It's going to take a tad longer than I thought.
Figure I'll post 10 entries a day.
You can all help out by keeping score in the comments column if you want.

Meantime, probably no questions this week while we clean up Miss Snark's Contest Mess. If you've sent a question in, and haven't heard back, it's in the queue. Don't resend it, don't write to ask where it is in the queue, please please please.

Now, off to look at what y'all have sent.

10o+? Be happy it wasn't 200 or 1k. You're popular.

Can I recommend a nice cheap terrapist?

I'm really sorry. I had no idea you were going to be so buried with entries, either. If you like, you can totally throw mine out. It stinks like last week's garbage, anyway.

But... *dang*, that was fun to do!

OH. MY. GOD. Half a million hits and you expect 10 entries? You get 50 comments when someone asks whether to attach lickable or self-adhering stamps. Get thee to a cluerry.

Patrice Michelle said...

LOL! I'm not at all surprised. How many hits did you say you get? *g*

AidanM said...

Only 100?

Doug Hoffman said...

You know what they say . . . be careful what you wish for.

I'm reminded of your half million hits, Miss Snark.

*slaps hand to forehead*

Every time I have a question going in the queue, it gets preempted by some form of crap-o-meter, -overload, -contest, thingy.

Oh, the emotional woe-ller coaster of a Snarkling!

Sam said...

And here I was participating so you would have at least One entry...

LOL

Simon Haynes said...

You've got one less than it should have been because I took pity on you and didn't send anything ;-)

I'll help you keep score.
I received 115 points. :)

Sky said...

Well, you know what they say about making the bed and having to sleep in it afterward... *grins*

Caitlin said...

I agree with Anonymouse. If you'd given a longer deadline, your responses probably would have doubled!

Take your time, you're not on the clock.

Really? You're surprised? Like anon said, "you're popular."

theinadvertentauthor said...

hmmmmmm... maybe you need a queue gun.

kitty said...

I was surprised that you offered another writing exercise!
of response.

Frankly, I'm amazed it wasn't more, even for a Sunday.

Just put up those stilletto-squished bunioned feet and curl up with the muddle of misconceived entries. A bottle of--nay, a bucket of blue ruin would not be amiss, Snark.

Phyllis S said...

Blame it on Lipstick Chronicles. It's how I found you.

Bernita said...

I thought like Simon - my excuse for not having a clue what to write.

December Quinn said...

Yep, Bernita, me too.

Yasmine Galenorn said...

Sometimes, methinks you underestimate your popularity, Miss Snark. :)

Anonymous said...

Oh, blast. That's what I get for sending things from my school email :(

Well, in my case, the esteemed Miss S can blame Dave Long's blog. I think. I've only seen this blog mentioned forty-eleven times amongst the too-many writing loops to which I subscribe.

My Master said, "Blessed are the merciful." In that spirit, Miss S, I sent nothing.

T2, saving her entry for the crapometer
(insert evil cackle here)
