Maybe there is a way you can blame this on snakes on a plane.

Francis,

Same thing happened to me the other night at a bridge tournament. We were in the top 5 and felt on top of the world...until the last board came in. Stupid mistake knocked us out of the top 10.

I feel for you.

Don't hate me because I'm fabulous...

I would've tried to write much faster in puzzle 7 if I'd been listed as 11th instead of 10th, but I just aimed at preserving my spot and writing oh-so-neatly. If I'd known Kiran had booted me out of the top 10 in the preliminary standings, I'd probably have raced through 7 and written a wrong letter or two myself. So I have ceded the disgruntlement I felt prior to the awards ceremony.

Anyway, it was great to meet you and Rose. Same time, next year?

i repeat my condolences on that - it sucks. As I often tell anyone who will listen, I mistaked myself out of the C finals a few years ago - I would have gotten in with a clean puzzle 7 or even one error, but I didn't see fit to stop there, so my four isolated errors dropped me to 6th in the division.

just remember - you proved without question that you CAN crack well into the top 10. and you will.

Thanks, tho, for letting Orange pinch your butt for me. Rose was right, apparently...you DO have nice buns!

Why would Rose lie?
