Next crapometer

Dear MS,

Should you forget your vow at some point this year and begin to think less heatedly about one of these again, you are welcome to email me. I hereby PROMISE to reach through the computer and shake some sense into you.

No charge. : )

Golly, it's good to have friends!

Oh thank God! When I saw "next crapometer" show up as a title in my RSS feed, I got worried that we'd have to give Miss Snark a Nitwit of the week award!

I about had a heart attack when I saw "Next crapometer" as the title to this post.
I thought we were going to have to turn your clue gun on you, Miss Snark!

Although I didn't take advantage of the last Crapometer--now I wish I had!--I do feel that I learned quite a bit from reading what you thought people did right and what they did wrong with their query letters. Thanks for doing this. You probably helped a lot of people secondhand in addition to the people who helped directly with their queries.

I participated in one of the last two crapometers. It was a lesson in building suspense. I lost the random drawing with my first number then (second chances!) I received a second number (blessed malfunctions!) only to find that it too was a loser. How does Miss Snark keep me coming back for more? Seriously though, I'm grateful, she's broken my phobia of submitting. Somehow, her cruel-to-be-kindness has made this nervous process a kind of fun. Thank you Miss Snark, whoever you are.

I didn't realise we were allowed--nay encouraged--to shake Miss Snark.

Would that be a ShakeSnark or a SnarkShake? Maybe a Shnark.

Maybe a dead sqrl.
