Probably a good idea. I'm up to my elbows in Mr Muscle (ooh!) and Mr Sheen (ahhh!!) not to mention I've had my duster out for days (wheee!!!).

 

Cleaning the house for the valuations has been and is an ongoing bind. To be followed in due course by clearing the house and finding myself a cheap flat for my cheap ass. So really, I could forget to do the usual reminders. Or I could remember. I dunno where I am half the time. Ah, death, I now know where your sting is. It's in the foolish child who has to clear up his Dad's goods and chattels.

 

Finding OldWillz's erection remedy was a hilarious point, I'll admit.

This is one point we were fortunate on Dad moved into a home about three years ago so we got to clear the house under less stressful circumstances. 

Funeral tomorrow.

Hope it goes off as smoothly as my Dad's Biblio. All the best.

So I have 12 validated teams. Thanks.

 

Now the heavy hitters are entering and, needless to say, I'm having issues with selections, and I am somewhat dredging notoriety from some of those picks! Anyhow, I'm generally on players' sides and will seek out fame if I can find it. But I shouldn't have to, you know, ha! I will always ask if a player wants to insist on a selection if I'm minded to allow on a basis not put forward by a player.

 

Be kind to the game runner, I've just had a bereavement myself and running a casino is difficult enough, lol.

 

Keep them coming, and remember don't be too late as I still have to validate teams before the deadline.

I’m in now. Randomized it again, but then I switched a few names from the sub bench to the main team and vice versa in order to try to avoid a repeat of my past performances. Which means those who were brought into the sub bench has now been cursed. :blush:

18 teams are in and counting!

 

Need 3 more to equal the entrants for last year, 4 to increase the pool! So if you are waiting and waiting, come on, there's just over a day before the doors get slammed shut and the teams are locked in until December!

Is there a reason why this pool only runs for six months?

It ground shares with the Cup. :D

 

iirc Willz was inspired to put something in the quieter half of the year by the Cup coming to an end one time. I like its non-uniformity.

Yeah, it's cup time early and casino time later.

 

I kinda canvassed a 12 month run, then thought, acht, complements the Cup, why not?

It's just that I forget that these things have ended and then somebody kicks the bucket and I get all excited thinking I've scored some points somewhere, only to find they were a pick in this pool and it finished three months earlier   ...... :rolleyes:

Toast Hits since 2017 Comp ended: George HW Bush; Lord Peter Carrington; Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg; Stefan Karl Stefansson; IM Pei.

Toast Hits since 2018 Comp ended: Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg; IM Pei.

 

Think everyone has those moments, especially if you just dropped them and suddenly three days into a competition they've snuffed it.

Yeah, I sort of have a growing rep for dropping folk in the DDP who promptly snuff it. Only Gilbert survives from my 2018 drops, so look out for a decision on the likes of Barry DuBois and Carmen Callil end of December. :lol:

 

This year, 11 days in, Steffan Lewis snuffed it. My greatest ever "doh" moment however was dropping the great Derek Martinus in 2014, as I had second guessed my ITK "death bed" info, only to gift him as a unique hit for a Diana Rots style team!

You are able to nominate at any time during the game a card THAT YOU HAVE NOT DRAWN FOR ANY OTHER PICK as a substitute for a Joker, whether you have had a hit with that pick or not

I guess it only matters if my Joker dies, but for the life of me I can't get this right in my head.  I won't say who my joker is, but it rhymes with Bilford Wenitez.

Any guidance required, you only have to ask. ;)

If Bilford dies, I'll be in touch. I might just figure it out by then anyway.

Queue at the door is getting shorter as is entry time.

 

With a little over 12 hours to go the confirmed entrants are as follows:

 

1. YoungWillz

2. Bibliogryphon

3. msc

4. theoldlady

5. JiroemonKimura

6. Great Uncle Bulgaria

7. Torva Messor

8. Yorkshire Banker

9. Gooseberry Crumble

10. DeathByArsenic

11. Fixed Business

12. Toast

13. RadGuy

14. Grim Up North

15. The Old Crem

16. gcreptile

17. Joey Russ

18. Death Impends

19. Skinny Kiltrunner

20. Clorox Bleachman

21. Banana

22. Sir Creep

23. Sean

24. Captain Chorizo

 

@Banana has to come back to me on certain queries on that team. (Edit - team now validated!)

 

If your name does not appear above, you have not submitted and had validated a team. No late entries! Come one, come all, before I pay off the performing juggler and the unicyclist at the door. Closer to the deadline I will begin to make assumptions about your picks if you have not clearly indicated who the people are - do not assume the game runner knows who you are talking about!

 

It might be you who stops Death Impends gaining a third title - a complimentary feather and cap are on standby in my office for the player who can do just that! Otherwise, if DI does win, he will gain the mop and bucket from the janitor's cupboard for again wiping the floor with the competition! :lol:
