Default Palimpian of the Year 2008

It’s that time of year again:

Beth’s year as Palimpian of 2007 has waxed and waned now reaches its dying fall – to mix metaphors. There have been sterling efforts all round these Palimp-shores in 2008 so now the time comes to vote again for which Palimper should gain the accolade supreme.

The poll will close on Christmas Eve, and the winner will be crowned with the famed Palimpian trophy on Christmas Day:



So a short short-list to set your voting fingers itching: all nominated for their great and varied reviewing and discussion contributions over the year.


Noumenon

beer-good

Daveybot

bill

Quink


Let the voting begin!

I enjoy the contributions of all of the aforementioned candidates - it was only Bill's Herculean Horror thread that tipped the straw that broke the scales.

Goodness me! I didn't even know there was such an honor. Thanks very much for the nomination, Col and anyone else who was in on it!

I'm going to express myself "surprised and flattered" while voting for the undoubted winner to be (in a desperate attempt to make myself look awful if I win). In other words, good luck Bill - if for nothing other than your horrothon you've been a top contributor to the year round here.

Aren't we going to get reasons, like RC's "for services to spamming"?

Haarrroooah ! (As characters in Our Mutual Friend are wont to do - must be a Thames dredgerman thing.)

For the next few weeks, I shall walk with a spring in the step, and perhaps throw my hat in the air from time to time.

Honoured .....
