For the record, Utah has no idea what my feet are like, one way or the other.

I think it's funny that you are so self-conscious about your foot-smell that you resorted to "the record".

I had to hide that cover art from my 6 year old the entire time I read that book.  Fortunately that was only a couple hours and now the book is safely loaned to a friend.

For Christmas my ex bought me an autographed copy of Snuff in Italian. I had to wait until the kids left to unwrap it. The cover has a picture of a naked woman on it and it's called Gang Bang.

I wasn't.  I was always in.  I just thought some people might be really concerned and want to be sure.

I was concerned because at first I saw that your left foot was in, but then all of a sudden your left foot was out. I was waiting for the hokey-pokey, but it never fucking happened.

So the way I am reading the new rules, with the delivery to Utah's email address and the non workshopping of entries, that means non-paying tightasses like me can now participate?

If so, I'M IN!!

You will email your story to Utah (the lesbian), and he will post a poll, including the story, right here in the forums.

Sorry, but who judges the winner? Is it still by poll or is it left to someone's keen eyes to make the determination?

8 days, mothafuckas!  8 days!

If you can't tell, I'm beginning to get excited about this.

Are you excited?  You should be excited.  Sharpen those sabers.  Carve x's into the noses of your bullets.  Begin placing boobytraps around your positions. 

It might help if you learn kung fu through a jack at the base of your skull.

Also, any headway on making this an Official Tournament? Perhaps a seperate tab on the top where all this could take place. That way those who are not involved can see how this all works out. 

Just some ideas.

I'm working right now on locating a website that will host the tournament and maybe produce some unalterable file that I can post to facebook or something with a link in the main tournament page.  That'll be part of my weekend work.

Brackets are not together yet.  I'll contact our panel of judges to put together seeding this weekend.  Also, we've got six slots yet to fill to have a straight-32 tourney.  So if you know anybody you can coerce into participating, coerce away!  I'll be doing some heavier recruiting over the next couple days as well.
