  41. Great contest, though I'm confused. If you're going to add more to the list and yet one of the questions on the entry survey is what to do we want to be entered for...

    Anyway, +2 for being an old follower and I think +4 for commenting on reviews (I've been worse about that than I'd thought, sorry!).
