Sorry, give me a moment...

 

I'm not crying, you're crying.

 

Anyway, my total the past couple of years at the end of the year was 13. Looks like I'm on course for the fucking same.

As I was starting my shadowlist, I was wondering : the celebrities that I pick has to have an obit in an english speaking newspaper or a french obit is sufficient ? (as I’m french)

some celebrities on the deathlist won’t have any obit un France : do I have to play by the rules given By the official DL or can I use french celebrities with minor international notoriety ?

It is meant to shadow the main deathlist so you should follow the same rules that it does. However, shadow lists aren’t necessarily meant for competition and you could really do whatever you like. It’s really just to see how you’d perform under the same circumstances against the list.

Jean Heywood (I missed the notice of her death in September) and Clive James brings my total hits for the year to 14. Still (only just) managing to stay ahead of the committee. Curiously :scratchhead: the committee and I only have 3 hits in common - Herman Wouk, Robert Mugabe and Clive James; that's the wonder and randomness of death for you :axe:.
