Not to be morbid, but my prediction is based on insurance mortality tables.
Sunday is a good PL day for me.

So what about the 2 people whose guesses correspond to previous guesses? Are they cut out because they didn't change their number in time?? I don't care what you decide, just curious.

What's morbid about being broken down by age and sex?

Cheers,

I missed it!

Hmm. Guess I'll put 'em in as the same number, and if they win, they'll have to split the prize. :roll:

Sounds good to me! :) Jenn has already accepted loser rewards over in our favorite project of the year. So I hoped we'd let them stay! :wink:

Now we have the perfect amount of people for: one per tongue-twister; Todd for intro, outro, and editing; yours truly for DPL; and the winner for the honors! :thumbs:

Holy guacamole, Batman! We've had NINE projects cataloged today (so far)! :shock: Twenty in the first 3 days of the month!

At this rate, we're going to blow past my prediction. Slow down, people! :roll: :lol:

Darn it! Sorry to have repeated a guess. I swear I looked for the number I wanted before I posted but my husband will tell you I often can’t find things that are right in front of me :?

Yeah I didn't realize mine was a repeat until it was too late to change it. Oh well...
