First, Congratulations are in order for Pinhead as last weeks winner. That makes two weeks in a row for her. Better get on the ball and stop her from making it three.

Since I have Shootout, High Noon. Quest and Memories to watch over also, I will need a little help with the verifing entries. What I propose is that if someone sees that an entry before them is invalid, that they challange it in this thread. Then if they can prove it invalid with a web site, they will get half the invalid entries score added to their total. The submitter of the invalid entry gets 0 for that day. Does that sound alright?

I'm pretty sure I can keep the totals updated. Just won't have time to verify every entry.

Good Luck to all!

KL - Sherpa is not part of the name, but is his nationality. It will not be counted as part of your score.

The question of whether titles (ex: "Sir", "Lord", etc.) should be allowed I will leave up to you players. Should they be allowed as part of the name?

Sage--I forgot to include it in the rules...titles shouldnīt count. They never have in other games. Besides, I figured most of these peopleīs names are long enough as it is. LOL

Good luck everyone!

You've got that right, PD!!! I had to do about ten double takes to write it out - and then I kept thinking there should be some more vowels somewhere!!! Glad he wasn't part of my grade school education!

Congratulations Pinhead!
MAMA!!!!! Your entry was downright sinful!!! Great job, I think you owe us all a Bloody Mary for attempting to pronounce it.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and Max Pinhead. We look forward to having you back with us real soon. Snake just won't be the same without our sweet PinTheTailOnTheDonkey. Take care.

I was wondering what had happened to you, Pinhead. Iīm sorry to hear about Max, I know how you must be feeling. I was a mess when my dear Coco died a couple of years ago. Hope you feel better soon.

The use of no titles (Sir, Lord etc) wasn't in the rules when I posted.

You are correct Caerr and won't be deducted the 3 points this time. It will be in the rules starting now.

Thank you Sagebrush, I know it is only 3 points, but by some of the entries already posted, I will be needing every point I can get. lol.

Pinhead - Sorry to hear about your loss of a family member. They do become part of the family and the loss of one is felt just as deep. Hope you are back with us next week.

I was totally confused today due to Daylight Saving Time, and posted more than half an hour before my slot. I think I may have taken Valīs spot, and if so I am extremely sorry Val!!! If this is so, then please take my points away, or at least cut them in half for godīs sake! LOL

I canīt believe I got that unbelievably long entry today...I was positive someone would have found it before me for sure! Thatīs it for me though..LOL..thatīs by far the longest I could find.

Will be back on track tomorrow for sure, just have to remember to post an hour later than what Iīm used to.

Well, Fortunata, I had that puppy printed out and sitting on my desk waiting for Partsdude to give me an "A" - even contemplated pretending he had today - going off the last letter of the last name - but you're the one to buy the drinks now - I don't think anyone can catch up with you, and definitely not if they have to pronounce that name to pass "GO"!!!!

Pin Darling, I am soo sorry. I had a nightmare this weekend and at least I got to cuddle my Bear when I woke up. I know you miss Max, but I'm sure you're not far apart. Take care, and come back to the fold soon.

No need to get mad at me, Mama! As you can see, I already asked Sage to take my points away. I think I took Valīs spot anyway, and whether it may seem so or not...I believe in always playing fair.

Oh, I definitely wouldn't get mad at you in any event, Fortunata! (I forgot I chose that face, but I meant it more as frustration on my own, not anger!) But I'm sorry if you don't get the glory of that entry. It's a sight to behold!!!

Fort, sweetheart, I've got the celery if you've got the vodka!!! This is the frst week in a long time that I've been at my desk calmly working and able to play on time - life - better than the alternative, but still a four-letter word with a big "IF" in the middle!!!!

You betcha, Jo Sweetie!!!
I'm making doubles, cuz I just noticed that Karma's entry for today is a duplicate of BagLady's from yesterday!!! Here I knew I was getting nailed, and I have a slight reprieve - drinks all around!!!
I actually made the discovery because I was feeling bad about giving BL an "E" today, but when I posted it, I was just happy it didn't end in "Z" like I thought it did!!
Belly on up to the bar, BL, and I'll try for a new letter tomorrow!!

Partsdude, you said the other day you might be late today - I'm gonna search and post if you haven't - I apologize if I'm jumping the gun - but I have a meeting later, and I won't be able to do anything if I don't start now.
I don't have anything in mind, so this isn't an agenda or anything. Just wanting to get something posted today
