Hey you! On the waterskis!

Hello, friendly neighborhood commenters. Just so's you know, there will be prizes galore for the 1313th commenter. I'm not telling you how far away that is or what the prizes are (because I don't know yet myself).

Maybe you should shoot for the stars! Maybe you would be better off not winning! You'll never know until it's too late!

gravatar kate - August 5, 2003 - 12:22 PM -

i miss my roommate. why won't she call me to play?

gravatar srah - August 5, 2003 - 1:07 PM -

You're not Kate! You confuse me! I'll call you if you want me to. I thought you were busy and had a life. Apparently not!

gravatar Jez - August 5, 2003 - 1:12 PM -

Me me me me me me me me me me

again

I am the non-html linking criminal. Will do it properly from now on, scouts' honour.

gravatar srah - August 5, 2003 - 1:17 PM -

That's alright - you hadn't been told. I probably could have done something to prevent that from messing up my columns, if I knew how to do anything. It's easier to make readers BEND TO MY WILL! MWAH HA HA HA HA!

gravatar katie - August 5, 2003 - 1:26 PM -

Jez is ineligible, having already won once before.

gravatar srah - August 5, 2003 - 1:30 PM -

Last time it was just for bragging rights. Now there are Valuable Prizes To Be Won.

I declare Jezzles eligible. So let it be written, so let it be done.

But before anyone goes and gets excited, you're still more than 50 comments away.

gravatar Kathy Howe - August 5, 2003 - 1:45 PM -

Please be me! I have a reputation for this sort of thing you know!

:-)

gravatar Kathy Howe - August 5, 2003 - 1:46 PM -

whooops...forgot to toss salt over my shoulder and rub my lucky rabbits foot.

there.

now...me! me! me! is it me?????

gravatar katie - August 5, 2003 - 1:47 PM -

No, me!

gravatar katie - August 5, 2003 - 1:55 PM -

ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME

gravatar katie - August 5, 2003 - 1:56 PM -

Shoot. If I had put all of those "ME"s in separate comments, I'd be a heck of a lot closer to winning...

gravatar alfie - August 5, 2003 - 2:56 PM -

I'm curious as to what the prize is and whether Meriadoc* will be required in any way.

* May change the name later.

gravatar katie - August 5, 2003 - 3:20 PM -

Huh? What's Meriadoc (or other name, if it changes)?

And by the way, srah my dear, I having been mentally referring to you as "swah" all day.

gravatar alfie - August 5, 2003 - 3:33 PM -

It's my computer. My sister likes to use it to make stuff for people because I have the best printer in the house and for a long time was the only person with a CD burner.

I have no idea what she's planning to do, but if she needs to use my computer, I guess she can, as long as she stops leaving comments on other peoples' blogs under my name.

gravatar srah - August 5, 2003 - 5:03 PM -

Nope!

gravatar Jez - August 5, 2003 - 6:37 PM -

Have I won yet?

gravatar Jez - August 5, 2003 - 6:37 PM -

This is just a ploy to get loads of comments, isn't it?

gravatar Jez - August 5, 2003 - 6:38 PM -

Well, I tell you, it'll never work.

gravatar Jez - August 5, 2003 - 6:38 PM -

Have I won yet?

gravatar srah - August 5, 2003 - 8:01 PM -

Yes, it is.

gravatar katie - August 5, 2003 - 8:02 PM -

Damn you, Jez. ;)

gravatar katie - August 5, 2003 - 8:05 PM -

You know what would be funny, ironic, and oddly irritating? If you, srah, ended up winning. Afterall, I think you comment the most of all of us!

gravatar srah - August 5, 2003 - 8:18 PM -

You'll be able to tell when it's close, because I'll suddenly shut up, even though I'm dying to retort something. That's what I did as we neared 1000.

gravatar Justin - August 5, 2003 - 9:29 PM -

If Srah were to win, I get the prize.

gravatar srah - August 5, 2003 - 9:34 PM -

Justin lacks confidence in either my self-control or my intelligence.

Justin is pretty damn smart.

gravatar Kathy Howe - August 5, 2003 - 10:25 PM -

But Justin isn't the winner right? It is me.

Right?

gravatar srah - August 5, 2003 - 11:15 PM -

Tadpoles! Tadpoles is a winner!

No, none of you are yet. Sigh. I knew I shouldn't have announced it so far in advance... it is nice to have 28 comments on one post, though! Makes me feel like one of the Cool Kids.

gravatar alfie - August 5, 2003 - 11:42 PM -

Quoting Deep Thoughts is always fun. Once I got bored and started reading them and IMing them to my friends because I had nothing better to do.

gravatar katie - August 6, 2003 - 12:02 AM -

I want to win. Me.

I should win because I let Srah guest blog when she was converting her site. Nyah. Then I let her totally crap on my site when I was on vacation. And even after all that, I have still allowed her IP to access my site. I must be insane. Nyah nyah.

See? I'm going to win by persuasion. Not by actually winning.

gravatar Somewhat - August 6, 2003 - 3:08 AM -

But Srah...

gravatar Somewhat - August 6, 2003 - 3:08 AM -

...if you do this,...

gravatar Somewhat - August 6, 2003 - 3:09 AM -

...you run the risk...

gravatar Somewhat - August 6, 2003 - 3:09 AM -

...that people...

gravatar Somewhat - August 6, 2003 - 3:09 AM -

...will write...

gravatar Somewhat - August 6, 2003 - 3:10 AM -

...a lot...

gravatar Somewhat - August 6, 2003 - 3:10 AM -

...of...

gravatar Somewhat - August 6, 2003 - 3:11 AM -

...absolutely...

gravatar Somewhat - August 6, 2003 - 3:11 AM -

...pointless...

gravatar Somewhat - August 6, 2003 - 3:12 AM -

...stuff.

gravatar Somewhat - August 6, 2003 - 3:13 AM -

PS Did I win yet?

gravatar Jez - August 6, 2003 - 3:53 AM -

Well, it's 4 o'clock in the morning in Michigan, but 10am in Paris - therefore I have loads of time to write comments here while Srah and Katie are fast asleep.

gravatar Jez - August 6, 2003 - 3:54 AM -

I wonder what the prize is?

gravatar Jez - August 6, 2003 - 4:01 AM -

Return air tickets to the US perhaps.

gravatar Jez - August 6, 2003 - 4:01 AM -

Although that seems unlikely.

gravatar Jez - August 6, 2003 - 4:03 AM -

I reckon it'll be a Srah Froggy/Neil Diamond compilation disc.

gravatar srah - August 6, 2003 - 7:15 AM -

Ack! You maniacs! Let's just say it's going to happen sometime today. Which I was not expecting. So prizes are not ready.

gravatar Jez - August 6, 2003 - 7:25 AM -

You'll have to post something to give us some fresh commenting material.

gravatar srah - August 6, 2003 - 7:31 AM -

Jez! Jez is a tadpole!

1313 comments! Game over! Leave me alone! You frighten me!

gravatar srah - August 6, 2003 - 7:32 AM -

Which is a good thing, because Justin almost won.

gravatar srah - August 6, 2003 - 7:41 AM -

You'll have to send me your address. YOU MUST! And you were closer than you thought with the guesses. Unfortunately the CD-one rather than the trip one. If anyone's crossing the ocean, it's me, and then not until I have money. :(

gravatar katie - August 6, 2003 - 9:04 AM -

*begin sore loser rant*

I would just like to say, for the record, that I was going to do a bunch of one or two word/sentence posts and draw things out like Justin and Jez did, but I thought that this would ruin the fun for others, so I didn't. Next time there's a contest, everyone just play fair, because I think it would be kind of neat to see who wins with just regular ol' comments.

*end sore loser rant*

gravatar Jez - August 6, 2003 - 9:15 AM -

Point taken. I apologize. It seemed funnier at the time...possibly not so funny now. Please send my prize to a more deserving commenter.

gravatar katie - August 6, 2003 - 9:19 AM -

Ha ha, I gave you a guilt trip. Nyah nyah!

gravatar srah - August 6, 2003 - 9:19 AM -

Next time, I just won't tell anyone there's a contest! Mwah ha ha!

gravatar katie - August 6, 2003 - 9:20 AM -

Now that I think about it, can any of us commenters really be considered deserving? I mean, come on.

gravatar Erica - August 6, 2003 - 10:22 PM -

What the hell happened here?
