As I sat here on a snowbound Saturday afternoon ... in search of aimless ways to pass the weekend (too shivery/blech-y to worry after "aimful" matters, after all ), I thought I'd go ahead and tally January scores. This does not mean I 'tallied' correctly, make no mistake. But I'm pretty sure these are them...

cinnamOn ... 10 points!
maninmidohio ... 9 points!
nakarinna ... 8 points!
szabs ... 7 points!
Mugaboo ... 6 points!
brandz_mygirl ... 5 points!
Gatsby722 ... 4 points!
denni19 ... 3 points!
Lizard_Wizard ... 2 points!
ainenei,
bethfay,
JaneMarple,
srini701,
Taesma ... all 1 point!

Let me know if (or where) I made any miscalcs, yes?
