This may kill me..but what the hell

We're over 500 entries with less than an hour to go.

I have an entirely new email program which I'm learning RIGHT NOW.
(don't even ask--but the crapometer didn't break anything, no snarkling is responsible for this mess.)

Things are a tad interesting.

I've responded to the first 200 or so people.

Everyone gets a number.
Then we run the random number generator.

Then we do the posting.

Let me know if anything isn't clear.
Post to the comments trail.
Email only if you really really really have to.

Wow, you do have a huge following. Thanks for all you do, Miss Snark!

Robin L. said...

I just got my number. I'm hoping and praying it comes up in the generator. This is SO exciting!!!

Corn Dog said...

Things are clear, very clear, so clear I may have uncovered the meaning of life while I have been sitting here hitting my browser's reload button wishing for news of the Crapometer. Ok, on the other hand, maybe I've had a tad too much coffee trying to stay awake until the Crapometer door closes.

Virginia Miss said...

What a fantastic response! Good luck with the new e-mail program.

Hey, My odds of being picked to be "crapped" (Hmmm... is that spelled right? is it even a word and if so is it appropriate for use around other humans?) anyway my odds are way better then winning the lottery. I'm so so excited. I never buy lottery tickets so I'm not used to the suspense (I'm not sending queries yet obviously) And instead of winning useless piles of cash, I might win the chance of having the expressions of my soul slaughtered publicly by a professional snarkicutionist. Yeah.

DID YOU NOT READ MISS SNARK. DO NOT EMAIL UNLESS YOU REALLY, REALLY HAVE TO.

Wonk&Robin (that sounds pretty funky!) you should not have emailed Miss Snark. And I'm not emailing Miss Snark here, I'm simply reprimanding two snarklings so poor Miss Snark doesn't have to. Don't you know she is inundated with entries!!!!

I'm posting anonymous just because, but I got a number, I got a number! And incidentally, it happens to be the same number as my weight! On the freaking moon!

Sleep well tonight, Miss Snark!

Crystal said...

I'm excited too. I wanted to thank you in my e-mail, but I didn't know if it'd annoy you (more) to separate the query from the note. Anyway, thanks!

I posted in hour two during a bout of insomnia (in Aus). I can't believe I'm in the 200's.

I'm surprised that over five hundred others are desperate, er, I mean, willing to bare their throats to Miss Snark.

WordVer: AU bungs. {whimper} No it doesn't.

Whispering my number into Killer Yapps' ear, while waving a super-sized steak in the air.

Fetch that number, boy...fetch!

You really are incredible, Miss Snark! I sent mine in at 1:01 PM - and I'm not one of the first 200??? Haven't heard from you yet. Patiently waiting, it's going to be an exciting weekend after all.

Witnit said...

This probably nets me a high nitwit quotient but . . . each entry is numbered and emails sent by sometime Saturday? Numbers randomly selected sometime later on Saturday? Then the "judging" begins? IOW, people shouldn't expect to see their crap quotient until late Saturday at the earliest? Or is Killer Yapp pulling an all-nighter?

I don't mean to put pressure on you, just getting a realistic sense of the proceeding. This is a hell of an undertaking and is much appreciated. I read all of the Snarkives, including the previous Crapometers. That you voluntarily put yourself through this again, knowing the response will be greater, is incredible dedication. Thank you.

Not a snowball's chance in you know where that I'll be picked since I was in the 400's but yanno (pp/tm) It was cool to get an email from Miss Snark regardless

Writerious said...

I have a number. I am clutching it in both hands, like a kid with a great big cookie, just waiting for the chance for my entry to be de-crapified. Am I some kind of masochist, or what? Do I need de-crapified, or re-analyzed?

Whatever. I have my shiny number and I'm not letting it go.

Don said...

I never win anything. I'm 383 and 385 and 386 get picked instead. Oh well, I hope to learn from the winners.

pennyoz said...

Hell hath no fury like Snarkliscorn...

How do you spell masochism?
Do these people take a holiday in the Philippines on the cat'o'nine tails beat your back to Calvary day?
Do they book a visit to the dentist just to read the old magazines?

Are we having fun yet Miss Snark?

Bummer. My number didn't get spit out. I've never felt so bad about not getting picked to be spanked in my whole darned life. :-)

You are truly amazing, Miss Snark.

Mrs. Brain Bomb said...

I sent my email at 11pm but I guess the mailbox was so flooded Miss Snark didn't recieve it until 1:30 in the afternoon the next day! 12 hours after deadline. Ha! That's my luck. I'll just see what see says about the other queries and apply it to mine.

Karen said...

Even better, I sent mine at 5 pm yesterday and as far as I know, she still hasn't gotten it. Not meant to be, I guess.

Mrs. Brain Bomb said...

Evil Editor is picking up Miss Snark's sloppy seconds if you missed her crapometer. It's a silver lining, wouldn't you say?
