*We might be lying here.

There you go – now go vote. And we’ll either listen to your calls or just blatantly ignore you, depending on how much alcohol we’re given by the nominees during the day.



EDIT - Changed Phil's name from Bartlett to Barnett - that'll teach me to be reading a West Wing wiki while typing...

*ahem*

Surely the second option in the Lifetime Acheivement Award list should be 'Phil Barnett'. Tch, shocking that you got that one wrong.

And dagnabbit, but I bet I lose out to Kev in the Gayest Gay Man category.

bollocks. Whoops.

Proud to be nominated in two categories but both I'm utterly unlikely to win! Now I know how you feel. I'll email my votes as instructed.

Fnarr! It goes without saying that these Awards are going to rock so much more than the Eagles.
bevismussonbevismusson on April 26th, 2007 01:24 pm (UTC)
Amen to that. Boo to the fact that I shall almost certainly lose out to Gillen and Kev. Unless people vote for me and not them, obviously.

That's wonderful, almost makes me wish I was going
idsharmanidsharman on April 26th, 2007 01:53 pm (UTC)
Well, at least now I can tell people that I've been nominated for an award in the same category as Alan Moore...

...I just have to avoid telling them which category it is...
Flatlineflatline2010 on April 26th, 2007 01:57 pm (UTC)
Yeah, and I've been nominated in two categories your girlfriend is guaranteed to win more votes in.

I am a little concerned that you are in the wookie category, I had £50 on you to win the ewok award but it appears to have been scrapped.

We're excited to be nominated. but come on, there are other nominations in our catagory (and they get more listeners than us), that's a sure sign of us losing.
We're the only podcast with 'Tony Lee News'!
Lone Samurai of the Pen and Papermrtonylee on April 26th, 2007 02:00 pm (UTC)
Ah, but you have Dan and Tony love.

And Dan and Tony love is MIGHTY.

Besides, gives you something to push in #19...

(By the way - Dan is listening to #18 right now....)
