    George Lucas sold his soul to Disney, the Mayan snooze button has a month left to go, and oh yeah WE NEED SOME NEW BLOOD IN THE RMFF LEADERSHIP POSITIONS! (except the Siths....this boat just don't float without you guys. You're stuck. No really.)[face_dunno]

    That being said, it's time to sacrifice, er, nominate this year's candidates for the five glorious positions! Before casting your nominations however, I would like to kick off this year's campaign season with our own slander video! Enjoy! [face_devil]

    My name's Jonathan and I approve this message.

    Wow, Lego. I could have sent you a picture of my butt, if you asked. I would have felt a bit weird if you did, but, for this cause, I totally would have done it.

    I think there have been people in the RMFF for "the bitches" way more than me! The Starfest stories I've heard...

    And just for you:

    And I nominate Sarnia for WOTR representative, Grimby for web mistress, and zeraduel for treasurer (assuming he pops up around here at some point!)

    I have 2, possibly 3 events in the first 6 months of 2013 which I am responsible for, and then another 1-2 in the Fall. Also, I'm pulling the trigger and going back to school.

    My time is already booked, so all I have to say is....

    NOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ergo, we need to book her some time in the loony bin right around a year from now.

    I second Grimby for Webspinner.

    I'm trying to think of people without babies or massive health issues for CR and CoCR -- although didn't we blend CoCR and MAL?

    I thought WOTR Liason was an appointed position, not a voted one? Did that change? I am still happy to do it=)

    Uhmm, I say no to CR and a possible no to Co-CR. My time doing other things (sewing) just doesn't make me available for computer time, my work is getting busier and busier by the hour.

    As far as I understand it, your're permanently appointed for WOTR Liason unless you say "not it."

    Not it! I think you're stuck with it for another 5 year term. I did enjoy the smear campaign video and await a good retort from J.T. Although now I know why he went through so many foster kids.

    Thanks so much for the nomination. I don't really like note taking. So I'd be a grumpy secretarian. I decline.
