9rules Preliminary Listing

Um, excuse me whilst I go and have a sit down in a darkened room for a moment…

*comes back*

Er, yes.

Well, as you can see, my customary fluency has deserted me somewhat at the moment. Partly this is due to a hard night out last night saying goodbye to the Boy Temp (picture me all πŸ™ – work just won’t be as much fun without his tall gingerness to liven things up) which has left me a bit cream-crackered, a feeling not helped by then going out tonight with illyna and the rest of the Collective. It is also partly due to something I just spotted in my RSS feed.

The list for selected sites for Round 4 at 9rules.

I have checked the list. Twice.
I have texted illyna to get her to check the list. Twice.
I was notified to the link from Tyme by Technorati.
I’d get Moose to confirm it as well, but I don’t think she’d appreciate being woken up.

So there you have it. Out of the 700 who submitted, 111 have been preliminarily accepted, and it looks like Bright Meadow is one of them. I keep thinking this is some kind of elaborate practical joke – keep hitting “refresh” just to make sure my name is still on the list.

Holy Batman on a motorcycle! *1*

And if that wasn’t enough firsts for the night, the Crazy Canalman has made his first ever comment on the blog. Not totally convinced that letting my father have the URL was a good idea, but he kept asking about what I was doing with my time, and I let slip about this website I wrote. He somehow managed to comment as me (I corrected it), but I think that might be because I signed into the blog on his laptop the other week to do some admin stuff… However it happened, he commented, and then emailed me to say how much he liked it. It’s always nice when your Aged P’s appreciate what you are doing πŸ˜€

Well, because I am jabbering, I am going to take myself off to get some much needed sleep. Congratulations everyone else who has been selected by 9rules. Now it’s just wait and see what the member agreement has to say for itself.

Whatever comes next, it sure is nice to be selected. A much needed happy moment after a couple of shitty weeks. I’ve got a grin on a mile wide right now πŸ˜€

I think it was the penguins that got me in, don’t you? πŸ˜‰

Endnotes:
*1* Yes. Unimaginative, but you can’t underestimate how tired I am right now, or how much this news has completely knocked me for six. I just sat here for five minutes blinking in disbelief at the screen. I was then shaking so much it took a further five minutes to type a simple text message!

  1. Thank you both of you.
    And it must be the penguins. Well, I was trying to think what else it could be and was drawing a blank, so yes, penguins.

    Well, just because they are evil, it doesn’t mean they can’t be helpful as well.

  2. *thinks about it*

    Nope. It was the penguins.

    (The minute I start believing the good press, is the minute I get big headed, and then you’ll all start to hate me πŸ˜‰ )

  3. So Mr Flibble used his Hex vision? πŸ˜€

    (It’s okay to accept the compliments and good press hon, and I don’t think we could ever hate you. πŸ™‚ )

  4. Hi Cas

    Congrats on getting in… I did a few refreshes too when I saw my site on the list, is a nice feeling huh? Kinda scary too but it is all supposed to be good fun so I guess if we keep doing what we do we should be fine! Anyway… congrats again and I will no doubt see you in the 9rules forum (how cool will that be???? ;-))

    Cheers
    Alan

  5. Congrats to yourself Alan. I think we all deserve a nice big pat on the back πŸ˜€

    To be honest, I’m a little bit scared about what comes next – but scared in a good way!

  6. Well okay then. Since you are being so forceful on the subject, I shall have to start believing I am worth a damn.

    *blush*

    Thank you πŸ™‚
