First banshee mention of the entire contest! You should win a prize! :-)
OK! Here's what happened to me ... I went out to get some dinner and
returned to check on my solid 20th Place (securing a prized
Fonality/trixbox T-shirt) ... when what to my wondering eyes should
appear, but \'anick the Canuck who was now TWO STROKES CLEAR! I CURSEd
and I SHOUTed and I called him some names| That Bastr/a//d! That
foo|bird! That Flamingo again!!! I'll catch him! I'll pass him! I'll
beat him this time! I'll punk him! I'll twizzle and addle his brain! To
the top of the board! Past Juho and ton! Now slash away, slash away,
slash away all!
When I came to, I was still one stroke back and all my hair had been
yanked out and deposited on the floor next to me. That \'akinc! It was
after 1AM and I needed inspiration. I went into my closet and tried on
all of my T-shirts ... None of them fit! I needed a NEW one!
So, I had another beer (a nice Belgian one) and kept at it and just
before 2AM, I saw the light! An extremely obvious 2 stroker that I had
tried earlier in a slightly different form. I could feel that feeling
of cotton ...

My general direction is South to you! (not to be confused with those
Netherlanderthaliens). I can almost see your fist ... wait ... no ...
that's the Statue of Liberty ... my bad!
I am pleased to know you are after me! No one ever cared about me as
much as you! I am touched by your kind words and your touching
sentiment! But, please don't get too close.

Oh \'anick! Forever Joyful \'anick!
Thanks to Fonality and, of course, Samy Kamkar, for the course!
I was up at 3AM to see the board change to the Post-Mortem with my
T-shirt hanging in the balance. I was at work at 11:30 before I
"officially" won, when the front page results changed me from 21 to 20.
All the best in 2007!
