  1. I’m sorry. I can’t do that, Dave. The site seems to be filtered for inappropriate content. I blame BYU.

  2. JI has secured some solid nominations; Justin, I believe you were also nominated a couple of times.

  3. I’m sorry. I can’t do that either, Dave. The site is filtered by the COB computers, too, for objectionable content.

  4. What’s in your gift bag?

  5. That’s crazy that Trash Calls is blocked. What does JA have on that site?

    For you, Ray, we’ll up your emoticon limit to 15 per month (see comment #25).

  8. I can access Trash Calls from my BYU computer anytime. And I do it often. He has some fun stuff there.

    I will definitely be voting for FI. I think you should list Richard Bushman as one of your guest bloggers.

    Comment by Margaret Young — March 15, 2008 @ 9:37 pm

  9. I meant I’d be voting for JI.

    Comment by Margaret Young — March 15, 2008 @ 9:38 pm

  10. #8 – and we now know that you don’t need to put an “aka BHodges” after Bro. Bushman’s name.

    Comment by Ray — March 15, 2008 @ 11:23 pm

  11. Hey now. I’m no Bushman poser.

    But I do largely credit my guest blogging with leading to the nom’s, of course.

  12. But I do largely credit my guest blogging with leading to the nom’s, of course.

    For a moment there I thought you were using “nom” to refer to New Order Mormons, and I was very confused, Blair. Assuming that nom is just short for nomination, then I agree. Your stint helped a lot.
