Have I mentioned to you guys that there are times when I think this
place couldn't possibly get any more surreal, and then it turns out
I'm wrong? But in a good way, of course.

But I'm not sure I can agree with the idea that EoMR doesn't get
enough appreciation.  After doing the number crunching for the
RACCies for two years, I can tell you that the struggle for 'Best
Review title' award hasn't been a close contest like it is for some
of the other awards. Not by a long shot. People do seem to
appreciate it, by they aren't highly vocal about it on a regular
basis, is all. But thanks for the thought.
