Oh, man I know. I have to use it for text, and certain edits. I often wonder what my last 11 banner entries would've looked like had I been able to get the text where I actually wanted it... ^^;;;

x_X God, I remember when I used to have to use MS Paint. I gotta say, you guys are pretty skilled with it.

Wow. I'm surprised. I thought for sure that NGH wag going to get first place. I didn't even think my banner was very good and not half as original/creative as other entries.

Congratulations to the other winners!
And really, why shouldn't we be afraid? In case you haven't heard, life is terminal. Cigarettes will kill you. So will your cellphone. Your car is a deadly weapon and alcohol is a quiet killer. Don't lick the lead-based paint on the walls. Don't lick the back of a postage stamp and certainly don't lick any strangers! That will bring you down quickly indeed. Don't drink the water but don't drink less than eight glasses a day. Your enviroment is toxic, your natural resources are dwindling, your days are numbered, but what ever you do, don't panic! The stress, don't you know, will kill you.

Just curious...isn't there supposed to be a Kisu's Choice Award? I just noticed that the Christmas contest didn't have one, and I'm just wondering if that award has discontinued, or...something? :-P

That's usually if Kisu has helped me with judging, which he sometimes does, and if he wants to give an award of his own.

He didn't help me this time.

I work four nights a week in addition to taking five classes, so with all the homework I have (and the very small time in which to do it), I'm seldom online anymore. Add that to my having spent the last few weeks in constant hospital visits (kidney stones, anxiety attacks, etc.), I haven't really been able to do much of anything.

Hopefully I'll have more time next contest and can help Tiffu with the judging (if she needs it), but I can't really promise anything right now.

=P Tempest didn't make that one, if you're referring to Venus in a heart.
