Hi all! I wanted to make a new post about a couple of things, just in case some stuff got lost in the long old thread we've got going.

First, here is the list of people who want the fish, in order of when they signed up.

Secondly,here are the guidelines we've established. If anyone has any questions or remarks about the guidelines, don't hesitate to let me know.

And, also, as a reminder here is the fish's blog, just so you can keep up with his travels.

Thanks!

I can't view the guidelines as your Yahoo! Page has exceeded something or other.

I think it's hilarious though and want to be included on the list.

Can I join? Pretty please?

Minstrel, as always your update for the blog is too funny. [lol]

Matt H and kathryn, I've added you both to the list. Matt, you're pretty far down on the list, but if you let me know when you're deployed, I'm sure we can bump you up, just for the fun of it. [Wink] I'm sure no one will mind, since some people are getting bumbed for various reasons anyway.

kathryn, I'm surprised you had trouble viewing the guidelines. Unless so many people have looked at it that it overloaded it. I had no trouble looking at it earlier, so maybe you can try again.

dang! I couldn't find this thread but I think the fish may be lost in transit, and misappropriated.

"A man could face six months in jail for slapping a passer-by round the face with a fish. David Evans appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court today where he admitted attacking Alan Binnie in Grangemouth earlier this year. The assault left his victim with red marks and fish scales stuck to his cheeks."

You better make sure of its whereabouts!

Jenn, since all of the Canadian snopesters are kind of lumped together because of the meet, I guess you'll have to wait and see who takes it from Nonny at the meet. The Canadian snopesters that I have listed are:

11. Nonny (Toronto, Canada) (needs fish on/before January 14, 2006)
12. Canuckistan (Canada)
13. callee (Ontario, Canada
14. Looney /Ringkeeper(Newfoundland)
15. UE Loyalist (New Brunswick)
16. JR (Ontario, Canada)
17. Jenn (Alberta)

Whomever has the fish in Canada last will be sending it (him?) onto Silas.

Cervus, I think you're right about this fish traveling for a very long time. The list has grown to a total of 71 people! I'm going to pencil Remark down for March 1st, since that's when LTCC is coming to visit him. However, he's listed after the European snopesters. Would anyone mind if, whoever has the fish just before that time mails it to him? Provided it hasn't gone to Europe yet.

The latest people added to the list are:
70. lazydogweb (Rye, Colorado)
71. Jocko Hammer (Baltimore, Maryland)
72. klim5150 (Arlington, Texas)
73. Something (Northern California)

ETA: The webpage has been updated. I also want to appologise to everyone if I don't keep things as updated as I would like. Between Nicholas, the BF, work and school, I'm not online as much as I would like to be.

lazydogweb, Thwacky is comming to Colorado! I think I'm #49 on the list and I live in Westcliffe. Maybe we could meet half way and I could hand him off to you. What does everyone think? Would that upset any plans?
