Title: The 2007 Del Board Awards - Voting Results
Post by the last to know on 12/15/07 at 10:35:15
Sorry for the delay in posting the results (scant as they are); I was waiting to see if a promised ballot was going to make it in.

We did hit 10, though the 10th voter was ungracious and seemed to think that adding “xx” to their PM undid the “damn crappity smacking vote” it started with.  Nevertheless, onward, with a bongo flourish echoing through the nearly empty hall:

Best Post on www.delamitri.com:  a three-way tie:  KansaKarl’s “Ever Heard the Expression ‘Dumb Waiter’?” – Hayley’s “Dear Joe I’ve got your password” – David’s “I am incredibly intelligent and better than you”

Dullest Thread on www.delamitri.com:  Few specific threads were mentioned; most of the votes said “anything by/about ____.”  Sharing this award are Anything About Dreams/Rufus and Anything To Do With Football.

Best MySpace Blog:  Sometimes specific blogs were mentioned, sometimes the blogger.  Rory the definite champ here; the favorite blog was “No Man Is an Island – Unless His Name is Mr. Madagascar.”

Best Singing at a JC Gig (besides Justin’s):  Unpopular as these categories were, they didn’t get ignored as much as expected.  Justin stubbornly got two votes, tying with Joe.

Best Dancing at a JC Gig (besides Justin’s):  Good lord, this was me.  Honorable mention goes to Brady’s brother, who danced (very well, apparently) with at least two of the Del belles.

Best Poster on www.delamitri.com:   Rory, by a nose.  Tying for second place were Joe and David.

Gone But Not Forgotten (Most Missed):  No contest.  The worryingly long away Biddie.

The Dangerman Special Award (Biggest Irritant):  Good Joe seems to have kept Evil Joe in check enough that no votes for him were cast in this category.  They were well scattered—but Burke and Clinton Hammond took two votes each.  As neither of them are here to claim their virtual statue, it remains on the shelf till next year.

Stalker of the Year:  Chrissie lost out this time to the North American team tourers, Sonja and me.   ;D  Having been officially sanctioned by Justin, however, we are not the least bit embarrassed.

And so we are come to the board sovereigns:

King of the Board:  The consensus here was muddled.  Joe takes the crown again, but just barely.  He was closely hounded by David, Mitch and Rory.

Queen of the Board:  Joe’s chosen consort this year is the clear winner and lovely Chrissie.

But I have to say I quite enjoyed one voter's notion of Rory and Joe as King and Queen, respectively.


Thanks much to everyone who participated, willingly or not.  I had fun, anyway.  Just sorry more people didn't take part.

Just didn't want to provide another excuse for me to be the official scapegoat for whatever is bad on this board so take it in the tongue in cheek way it was intended. Or were you being ironic considering the vicious nature of 2 out of the 3 top posts of the year?

Congrats to the winners! Here's hoping we dont have to be put throough this again next year. ;)

Wow!  Thanks guys!  

A second win for me - maybe I should seriously think about going in for X Factor or something and make it 3 in a row!!!  ::)

Oh, tongue in cheek.  Give me a break.  Yes, after you'd made it clear earlier that you weren't intending to vote at all.  Nobody insisted that you vote except yourself.

Your assertion that if you didn't, you'd be made a scapegoat says to me that you need to get over yourself.  Just a bit.   ;D

I always said that the best singing at a gig was a great idea,I never even knew I was singing though to be honest so that one came as a bit of a shock...
As your king I would like to thank those who took the time to vote as after all its only a bit of fun at this time of  year,for those of you who never voted could you please remove your head from your own arse and and get a crappity smacking grip,why take your self so seriously?

I would like to dedicate my award for being named King again to Mia Grace Mitchell and thanks to Mary for doing it this year.
Cheers

HRH JJB.

Oh no...don't make this into another football thread....!!

Did I tell you about the strange dream I had where Justin was playing football with Rufus Wainwright and they were both wearing pink football boots and carrying pink handbags and singing Always Look on the Bright Side of Life....?  ;) ::) ;D

You know as well as I do that this board is like a parallel universe and if people hate you it really means they love you.  Hence, it is my award with my name on, which makes me one of, if not the, best posters ever.  Fact.

Since no one is here anymore, can we have another awards so that I can win one?  I'll vote for me on everything.
