I Hate It when I'm Right  
I got one of forthrightly's lovely banners just for being nominated which makes it much better . When I was nominated this quarter I didn't expect to win, I was really happy to be seconded even, but dead last a couple of slots below "No award should be given" is somewhat embarrassing. I feel a bit like Charlie Brown.

- Divinations of a Curious Nature by Abraxas, 11 votes, 22.92%
- Goldenrod by Fenikkusuken, 7 votes, 14.58%
- Miroku Meditates by Knittingknots, 6 votes, 12.50%
- InuYasha's Dream by Knittingknots, 5 votes, 10.42%
- The Power to Protect by Ginger Bits, 5 votes, 10.42%
- Sometimes The Wind by Knittingknots, 5 votes, 10.42%
- The Journey's End: An Epic Poem by JediK1, 3 votes, 6.25%
- No Award Should be Given, 3 votes, 6.25%
- Kissing and Quotients by Silent Scribe, 2 votes, 4.17%
- Resurrection by Ranuel, 1 votes, 2.08%

No, that one vote wasn't mine, the poem I voted for didn't win either though.

Really, being considered the 9th best poem of the quarter is pretty darn good given it's the first poetry I've done in years and how much IY poetry is out there.

Congratulations to Abraxas (AKA Ren), fenikkusuken, and Knittingknots for their wins.

congrats for being nominated! (though as you point out sometimes it's better for peopel to let you stay under your rock... ) funny how even when you aren't competitive it's hard not to feel the echoes of the competition....i love the banner on your sidebar!

Thanks! Yeah, even when you didn't set out to win something and you don't expect to there is still that "And the envelope please" excitement when you open the post to see the results and the resulting let down.

Hey, if you'd expected to win, perhaps you'd have been right about THAT! ;-D

You KNOW that's not the way it works.

And you didn't read any of the entries either so you could say that honestly.
