479 waiting.
7 hours to go.

That's all for tonight.

I haven't gotten past entries sent at 8:03pm so if you do not have a number yet, don't worry.

Good grief... that's a lot of waiting... and I can't imagine what that number will be by tomorrow!

Good night!

479 waiting - Damn, Miss Snark is going to regret doing this Crap-O-Meter

I, for one, appreciate it...

My god! I didn't actually get mine sent until 9. It'll be next week, probably. ;)

Wow. Just wow....

Who else thinks we should start a Chocolate for Miss Snark Fund?

Writerious said...

Eeep! Take your time, Your Snarkiness, and get some much needed rest.

Maybe we should all be taking up a collection for Miss Snark's rest cure at a lovely sanitarium in Switzerland when this Crapometer is over.

"That's all for tonight."

What a wuss.

My god how the hooks roll in.

479 already? Holy overtime, Batman. Wow, everyone who has submitted owes Miss Snark a thimbleful of gin!!!

Oh. Hmm. It doesn't say much for my social life that I've spent an entire Friday evening reading a blog, but at least I'm not alone, judging from the amount of comments.
479. Wow. Well, at least I can go to bed now.

logurg-- the sound one makes after logging in too quickly and messing up one's password several times in a row.

JPD said...

Thank you for doing this, MS. Did you volunteer for the job, or is this a court-ordered punishment?

But seriously, 520 letters in 5 hours... That has to be a month's worth of slush. This is some valuable stuff you're doing here. Thanks.

Greta LaGarbeaux said...

I'm guessing about now Miss Snark might be reconsidering that whole "If you send it, I will post" thing, huh?

JPD said...

I only counted one "WTF" tonight, big spender... Save one in the cartridge for me...

So Miss Snark did 41 entries in about 4 and a half hours. Since it's late and she's likely tired/gin-impaired, lets say she averages about 10 per hour. She's looking at at least another 48 hours of work, and the Crapometer window hasn't even closed yet.

I think we need to nominate this woman for sainthood right now. You're an angel, Miss Snark - and a very hard-working one, too.

Wow...I couldn't sleep tonight if I was Miss Snark. I'd just lie there in bed, imagining the entry e-mails piling up higher and higher, and whimpering "What in God's name have I gotten myself into???"

Someone hire George Clooney to go over and hit the 'Get Mail' button once the time is up...

479?

Wow that's alot of traffic. How on earth do you do it? Well, at least you have your gin pail to keep you company and yes of course that darlin' of a pup killer yapp.

It's not only a lot of waiting, it's also a lot of work for Miss Snark.
When does she find time to pour herself a gin, sit back and relax?
Here's to you, Miss Snark!

Kristi said...

So should I send my 600 other hooks? Or wait until next year? I'll send them, just to be on the safe side.

8:03 PM! If my calculations are correct, Miss Snark should get to mine by the holidays. I sent mine about 9:03 PM. No wonder I don't yet have a number, and now I can relax a bit.

Mind if I join you, m.g.?

Make mine champagne. I'll just pretend I've succeeded.

(and note that my word verification is wgyod--perhaps a variant of Why God? or what good?

I survived being sliced and only partially diced... ;->

sla said...

I agree with tarquini. Maybe this should be called the lush (instead of slush) pile.

Pisica said...

Wow...I should have gotten up at 1am to send, then.

Stupid time zones.

Kathy said...

Good Lord, Miss Snark! Do not wear yourself to a nubbin!

At least, not until you've made it through the first 101. ;-)

Seriously though, your comments have already been an education. Much more than the "This sux" you promised.

Xiqay said...

Dear Miss Snark,

You deserve something special in your holiday stocking.

Cheers to you and a gazillion thanks again for running the C-O-M.

Oh dear dog. I'm sorry I sent you two. At least we know you won't be terrorizing anyone but us for a while. Thanks, Miss Snark.

I got my number this morning when I checked my email. I am up soon. It's hard waiting when you know how close you are. I imagine it's going to be a lot harder for the people at the back of the line who know there are 400+ in front of them.

Bah, I'm going crazy waiting. Why am I such a masochist that I can't wait to be shredded by Miss Snark's stilettos?
