11 dude, not 22. 11. Eleven.

Nathan said...

Ten.

Dude.

Nathan said...

I told you I was bad at math.

:(

Tania said...

9. Hah!

Tania said...

You have many other redeeming qualities. Just don't ever work retail where you'll be expected to make change.

Nathan said...

Actually, I can work up some fairly complicated budgets, worked out in man-hours with fringe benefits that are divided between percentages and flat rates with various overtime rates.

And geometry makes perfect sense to me.

Tania said...

Kewl. I have a spreadsheet that I use for that, where different employee types are assigned their code so the formulas use their benefits rates, if they get OT or not, and all kinds of other cool stuff.

Egads, but I miss that. My job is not intellectually stimulation. At all.

Nathan said...

RHOMBUS!

Tania said...

Rhombus! I thought this was a polyblog, not a polygon...

Jeri said...

Seven! Lucky number seven.

And I came here to review the picture hosting issue. Damn you for distracting me with shiny stuff like contests.

Random Michelle K said...

That's because geometry MAKES sense.

And I can make change easily. You just count *up*.

And isn't the damned contest OVER already? It's, like, totally past my bed time.

Nathan said...

I'd kinda like to go to bed too. But we're four visits from a winner.

Dudes.

Jim Wright said...

How about now?

Did I win now?

Jim Wright said...

What number am I?


Nathan?

Are you there?

Tania said...

C'mon. I DID NOT CALL THE WRONG JIM WRIGHT IN THE MAT-SU VALLEY JUST TO NOT HAVE JIM WIN. THAT WOULD BE WRONG. WRONG!!!

Tania said...

dude

Nathan said...

My loyal readers continue to not know the difference between "comments" and "visits".

Two more to go!

Shawn Powers said...

And this, I believe, is when the future becomes the present. :D

(And, it pays to work late, and determine that the time to come home from work is when Nathan's number approaches 10,000 so that your "home" visit might be the magic number. w00t!!!!)

My loyal readers continue to not know the difference between "comments" and "visits".

Well, some of them don't. And there was a radio station when I lived in the Cities that used to play that every Friday at the end of the morning show.

I loves me some Todd Rundgren!

Tania said...

Someone WON!! 10,001 is on the counter.

Tania said...

Yay Shawn!!

Well Jim, it was good to hear your voice tonight. Sorry, despite my best efforts, that you didn't win.

and Nathan, we know the difference. It's just that if you do a hard refresh, it usually ups the counter at least once.

Shawn Powers said...

Tania,

I'm fairly certain I was indeed the wiener, but I'm waiting for some New York verification before I go all ape crazy over here. :)

Jim Wright said...

Oh man, soooo close. Dammit!

Shawn Powers said...

I kinda feel like I just stole candy from Jim. Maybe Nathan will fudge the numbers, and call me a photoshopping bass turd. I'm OK with that. :D

Nathan said...

Tania,

What the hell is a "hard refresh". It sounds painful.

Shawn, You're the honest to God winner and will receive the prize.

Jim,

You are the first runner-up. Should the winner be unable to fulfill his obligations, you will be tapped to complete his reign. There's a tiara involved.

Nathan said...

I amuse the crap out of me.

Shawn Powers said...

Dear Lord, I AM NOT ABLE TO FULFILL MY OBLIGATION.

But only if Jim takes a photo of himself in the tiara. :D

Nathan said...

There's too many conditions involved. Somebody please tell me who to send tickets to.

Jim Wright said...

Hey, I look good in anything.

If you really, really want, Shawn, I will send you a picture of me in the tiara - just the tiara.

Be careful what you wish for, just saying is all. ;)

Shawn Powers said...

Jim, you win. No snark can beat the threat of a photo offer in only a tiara.

I'll watch the movie even if I have to walk to New York to do it...

:D

Random Michelle K said...

Also, multiple browsers can up your visits.

Unfortunately, I only have three browsers installed on my laptop (Firefox, Safari, and IE), and was too damned lazy to walk downstairs to turn on the desktop.

But YAY Shawn!

And if Jim really wants to win, you can give him my win. I don't mind. :)

Nathan said...

Michelle,

You won fair and square...and I'm pretty sure Jim is just bitching for effect. And he's good at it.

Please tell me which theater near you has a website that I can get gift certificates from.

Random Michelle K said...

I know.

But if it will make him feel better, I'm willing to let him win.

I know how fragile the egos of some men can be.

;)
