      Thanks Dave. Maybe we’ll stick to this new timeline going forward then

      • Yeah, I really like the awards for 2013 bein’ right after 2013, too. Includes the whole year that way. Perhaps the nominations could be pushed back just a tad, too. I would have LOVED to have entered my post about how all those reporters and photographers were hangin’ out at the end my driveway ’cause of that video someone found of me enjoyin’ a biff bag full of nip but I couldn’t. It was written in 2013 but after the nominations were closed.
