Thank you.

Originally I was going to catalog two versions of this - with and without bloopers - since the poem for each letter is pretty short. I am now going to do this the normal way - without bloopers - only. So no one will ever hear any stumbling first tries to get things right, if such stumbles actually occur. It will sound like we're all volunteer readers for audiobooks. So edit away and submit your final without fear.

Thanks, Todd.
I realized that you’d chosen not to do the bloopers after all, so I meant that the initial recording process would be painful :lol: I don’t think I was very clear. I’ll go ahead and do “I”, however. It’s nice to be able to finish up with the project anyway.

I need a voice credit - "P read by ____" - it serves as a separation to say what letter is coming next.

Thanks, Todd
sorry for the mistake...

I would like to emphasise that by submitting my section to this project I in no way admit defeat in the contest. After all, there's still more than 13 hours to go in which the final result can be turned in my favour. And also... oh well, here it is:

Hi Todd,
Helping you on your way to world domination.
Here's V, length 22 secs if you need that.

And here's I, at almost 23 secs:

Hopefully the file is usable. I switched recording stations after my first take and realized that the voice credit *wasn't* usable, so I had to rerecord that (that's why it sounds so different from the rest of it.) The actual twister isn't very good quality but I'm hoping it's still okay, as I think I'm understandable and the process was pretty painful to read aloud. :lol:

Well, 2020 is over and we have a winner! 1336 projects cataloged last year means that RSlabaugh can claim the prize with the guess of 1337. Hooray.

RSlabaugh is also the DPL for this project, so before you make any snide remarks, you might want to wait until this project has received its "PL OK" lest you start inciting PL comments on your selection up the wazoo.

We are only missing contributions from mightyfelix, SonOfTheExiles, and m8b1 to be complete.

Thanks, Todd

I will try to get you mine by tomorrow. I came down with a cold shortly after I claimed it. (That's my excuse. :lol: )

I quickly quoth this questionable query without a quaver. Though I was quondam queen of the contest, I was quelled by the competition, so I shall not quibble over the consequences.

You made that quite clear.

(I don't think I have ever seen quondam used in a sentence before.)
