    I was one of those who lucked into the First Blood bonus. So excited I ate the candy bar I'd been saving since Christmas.

    Kisses blown to you for letting me keep some centenarian solos.

    It's going to be invitation-only. DMs of the 'me! me!' variety, DSCDP handle provision included, are accepted. DSCDP: Beat a Dead Hearse is renewing the public hate-picks Funeral Home 'Die Motherfucker Die' for 2020, and will, I understand, be as thorough culling as s/he was in 2019. Because that's a public option my 'Spite: Every Drop a Delicious Ray of Sunshine' Funeral Home (well, ours, I have a partner) is invite-only. Accommodating FH directors, DSCDP folk who are mutual Twitter followers, and most anyone here choosing a high-on-glee-and-karma, low-on-points alternative expressing interest will receive an invite at least 48 hours before the pool starts.

    A DL/DSCDP pal and I are planning a Spite Pick pool on DSCDP, but would like to limit the entries to invitation only, for those who have met their quotas for competitiveness and are satisfied to coast on the rarefied glee of karma. For example, if seeing people like Ivan Milat and Jeffrey Epstein die, but coming in fifth, is okay by you on one funeral home, let that funeral home be mine.

    Does that mean Canada has to take in 52 US refugees or hide more Americans at its Iran embassy?

    I learned last-minute changes are accepted "as long as one's not an asshole about it". Re: Margaret Keane, I have an artwork original by her daughter Susan. All I'm hoping for this year is that my friend's $10/surplus hit bounty doesn't take me more than $50 out of pocket in our annual bet.

    Hares Death Pool 2019

    Valerie Harper is showing as my 24th entry on the masterlist, not struck out, and not on the quoted update. Am I due the 241 points others received for Valerie Harper (d. 30 Aug 2019)? The corrected score would have me at 10/25 for Hare's Death Pool 2019. Congratulations to John Key.

    yes, please, up with cancer. I don't want 1/5 of my lists to be face-tattooed "Lil" recording artists, and I don't want to consider 130 points from 8 hits "a good score." I hope you understand I was halfway joking.
