As of this morning, we have a mere 537 comments to go in our quest for 35,000–and I’d like to see this done before we embark upon our Christmas Carol Contest.
Whosoever posts Comment No. 35,000 will win a dazzling prize! I can’t decide whether to offer a deluxe thoroughbred horse farm on the scenic Gulf of Ob, or to continue the tradition of the winner getting an autographed copy of one of my books.
The contest is open to all, and all comments are eligible, with the following exceptions: comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing blasphemy or profanity; commercials disguised as comments; or words simply too inane to bother with. Other than that, anything goes.
