I Am Not A Winner

Much to my delight, I did not win a Ditmar on the weekend. That honour went to Paul Haines (as it rightly should).

Regardless, that brings me up to ten nominations and no wins. I am equal, now, with Bill Wright, my friend and enemy, the only man worthy of sharing such an honour with me. No doubt you will all understand that I cannot and will not think you equal to myself and Mr. Wright. We have worked hard, we have. Jack Wodhams, whose first nomination was in 1970 (or 71, it is a bit unclear) is the closest to contest us, but at eighty-one, I am unclear as to what he is doing at this current time. No doubt, he is untrustworthy. No doubt, his plan is diabolical. I will await to see. Just as I will wait to see what Bill Wright plans.

My plans?

Well, I shall not speak of them, no, not publicly, not like this, no.

As always, thank you for your support and well wishes. I could not have come so far without any of you.

Congratulations on not winning! I did spare a thought on the night for how pleased you would be.

Peek, you have one advantage over Bill: Youth is still on your side. It's possible you could clock up another 20-30 losing nominations across the next few decades!

but the risk!

you have to be careful with this, to not push yourself too far. once you win, you're outta the competition.

You could always call the legitimacy of the voting process into question right before voting starts...
