Being the pushy sort I asked Red Planet when they might be announcing the winner, in order to save wear and tear on carpets, what remains of my hair and so forth.
The answer is: hopefully by the end of the month.
So now you can relax.
What's on the turntable? Nowt.
Thanks for the information.
Will the judges accept emotional blackmail if I explain that my roof is leaking into my daughter's bedroom and I could do with five grand to repair it?
I'd been thinking about it but reading your blog, Laurence, was the tipping point for me actually asking, seeing the agony you were going through.
Sorry David, the black hole of my accounts gets first dibs - family and mortgage to support, can you spare 40p, guv?
I appreciate you asking. It's daft - I could have quite easily asked them myself. Not sure why I didn't, really.
Aha, an official announcement, now does that mean there'll be a shorter short list announced? Which would be good in some ways, or going to the winner without announcing the shorter list?
Somebody else can ask :-)
Does this downgrade our talk of "Red Planet Finalists" to "Red Planet Second Round Qualifers"?
Well, I'll leave the CV as is for the time being...
Last year I think they had two rounds of finalists. I don't care if I'm finalist Layer 1 or finalist Layer 2. I'm a finalist and I'm goddam well staying a finalist.
