And the winner is...

So, here is Himself on the three finalists.

"St Burl. Now, I like that, I really do, don't get me wrong. For a long time that was the front runner, make no mistake about there. But I got to thinking. There's this THING about saints, see - to qualify to be one you either have to be poisonously good (well, that shouldn't be a PROBLEM, really, seeing as I'm surveying my world from this little spot in The Writer Woman's office, just how much in the way of shenanigans am I really going to be able to get into... although don't ANSWER that, nobody quite knows what my capabilities are, quite, yet, anyway, and I might well be found stalking the bucks outside if I felt like it...) or else, well, not to put too fine a point on it, a martyr. That has even less appeal. The stakes are kind of high, because - well - I WOULD (or should that be "wood") be the stake if any burning at the stake were to be contemplated. So I cooled on the idea. And just "Burl" - eh, no. Not quite there. So, regretfully, decline.

Farnabal. I like that, too. It's exotic and exciting and noble and kind of gives me images of riding on elephants and all. But, see, I am not in any way noblesse or oblige. I'm what you might call a working class chap of a gnome. I need a name that is simple, direct, and doesn't give me delusions of grandeur or those who address me the wrong idea. So, regretfully, decline.

Which leaves number three.

I will add my name to the signed book which The Writer Woman has offered as the prize. Would you kindly let her have a mailing address, she can be contacted at anghara at vaxer dot net, and the book will be on its way to you shortly after this information is received.

Yours sincerely,


So - he has apoken. Many thanks to all of you who played.
