The moment you've all been waiting for...the awards to end all awards...the Koala Challenge Awards!
Best Excuse for a day off: JC Montgomery: "I'm getting married."
Worst Excuse for a day off: Blogless Troll: everything he said.
First Smackdown: Whirlochre
Best exit from a Smackdown: Whirlochre (mainly because I think he was the only one who actually completed his penalty, including, um, me)
Longest time on Smackdown: Blogless Troll
Only victim of Koala Supersmackdown: Blogless Troll
Most humiliating Smackdown: The Koala (mumble)
Most polite manipulator of the rules: Sarah (see, you hardly noticed her doing that, did you? she quietly got herself permission to enter total weekly wordage rather than daily, tut tut)
Runner up: Chris Eldin (never once posted her stats, but made sure via other means that I always knew she was writing, and thus never gave me the pleasure of punishing her)
Second runner up: Janey V (I was never quite sure what she was up to, but somehow she got herself on smackdown, out of smackdown, up and down, turned me around and now I'm all dizzy)
Best illustrator: well, duh, JJ de Benedictis (but if she sees this, she's in trouble, she's supposed to be 'on a break') - and she's a runner up for the very last award, too, the one that really matters, so read on to find out what it is...
Most diligent reporter of wordage: shared between Sarah and Sylvia (the Koala thanks you for your diligence!)
Shortest time in the challenge before requesting a break: Precie (was it five weeks or six?!)
Flakiest Challenge Commander after she got that pesky job: The Koala (sorry!)
And, finally, the one that actually means something...the award for the most consistent writer...the person who spent the longest time on 'Koala Approves' status throughout the year...the person who thus has a novel she can be proud of...the person who puts us all to shame...is....: Robin!
Runner up: JJ de Benedictis
Congratulations to Robin, may the rest of us be ashamed of ourselves and roll on 2010!
2010 challenge? What, don't you lot want a break? Yes, probably, but it will take a different form and may be more sympathetic to those with office jobs. Now I have one. Selfis? Moi? The Koala is cogitating. Quake, all ye who write.
