Actually, I believe that was Larry, & I've already got him down for
that. Larry's actually in a number of categories. I hope someone can
accept any awards he might win for him at the ceremonies at it seems he
will be cyberabsent.

Ok, listen up "that parenthetical guy Daniel" (& everyone else). Whilst
"most annoying newbie" might be an award to consider, we need to have it
based on a Groo character (sort of the theme of all the current awards),
so as of this time, it doesn't even exist yet. Daniel, you're aspiring
(hmmm...awfully close to aspirin) to an award that's non-existent. Plus,
I have news for you, whilst you may have been annoying at some point (I
don't remember exactly - I have a VERY short memory), currently you are
at times witty & other times just someone who adds to the already
copious amounts of mail which lands in our computers...making you the
same as the rest of us.

Now stop your whinin'!! That may get your letter printed occasionally in
the back of some comic, but it won't sway the Academy of Fine
Grooisticness which is riding herd over this whole awards business!

Scary? Yes!! Actually, I think the line is painted right at the edge of
a cliff. :) I don't think Gary's hit bottom even yet.

Parenthetically speaking, that award doesn't exist yet either. If anyone
DOES feel an award is particularly worthy to add to the list, please try
to base it on a Groo character & let us know by, let's say, Tuesday, so
folks have some time to nominate other Groop members before next weekend
when the voting starts. It could be just a 1 time award this year, or
something destined to be awarded annually.

I'm writing this whilst eating my breakfast, however, that in no way
should imply that I *am* an English airline.
