Default Palimpian of the Year 2007

It's difficult to do, I know, but try and calm yourselves. Oh, no, never mind, go shit-ass crazy people for it's that time of year again....Huzzah!

Yes, wshaw's reign as Palimpian of the Year is about to fade, and a new champion take the dais in the supreme approbation of his or her peers

The poll will close on Christmas Eve, and the winner annointed with the special Palimpian trophy on Christmas Day:



Ah! Now you're suddenly interested, aren't you? Huh? Yeah? A bit of bling and you sit up! I getcha.

So, without further ado, here is the shortlist and the reason for nomination.

Beth - for trebling her carbon footprint just to fly to the BDO

jim -
as compensation for cursing himself with a new Apple Mac

JunkMonkey -
for never falling to the temptation to read Revolutionary Road

ono no komachi -
for successfully splitting her time between new home, new garden, and the green fields of Palimpsest

Digger -
for getting a new job sixty miles from home just so she could post more book reviews

Let the voting begin!

Why haven't I been nominated, eh? Have I not been grumpy enough this year?

It would have been for your graciousness, if nothing else, amarie. What an ommission, my humblest apologies.

Fab list, a.

And of course qualifications vary from year to year (we understand Wavid has actually read a book written by a female of the species now) so strenuous over-grumpification or deliberate changing of jobs/houses/computers in 2008 to win this coveted title will do no good

Get your votes out, everybody!

And surprisingly no Donna Tartt thread here - Wavid, I think you must start one.
