I hope you guys are having a good weekend!
I have a feeling that I'm going to be taking awhile looking over votes just to verify. Then again, the country music awards are apparently on, so no Amazing Race.
So verifying votes - and saying my goodbyes to these final four - that's what is going on with *my* day. OK - fine - and watching Hulu!*g* There's going to be some of that as well!*G*
Since this tends to get lost after the big announcement - I'll do it now - Thank you to everyone who has helped make this season so fantastic.
A special thank you to n_decisive and kithan my assistants this season.
Real life side tracked both of them - but the help that they were able to give was pretty much essential. (Even in the brief time n_decisive was able to serve she formatted the method that I used to keep track of everyone right up to the end! and of course kithan was able to step up and help when there was literally no way of me getting to a computer in time!!)
Even more helpful was what they taught me - that I could actually do a lot of the job if I needed to do it. Which is something that I wasn't sure about before - and certainly made life more difficult in the past. So, thank you to both of you.
Thank you to all 195 contestants, their families, friends - and people who discovered their work throughout the course of the season. Literally could not have done this without you.
There were some bumps and bruises along the way, but I will say this for it - in retrospect they were mostly self contained and ended up being dealt with enough that they were no longer issues within the competition itself.
I'm looking forward to seeing how this season ends!!!
I'll see you in a little bit!!!
So pass around the last of the virtual food and take a last look around - soon we will be moving into our Banquet Hall for the Award ceremonies...
