spoon-business: nweek 8 results

Yes, it's that time again...

The following are recognized during nweek 8:

"Run, Run, As Fast As You Can! v2.0" is 434/0.
The Sushi has been given to Scoff!.
"Roller Gremlin" is 435/0.

Glotmorf lobs the Witch Gremlin at Iain, who catches it and throws it back
to Glotmorf, who in turn slings it at Rob.

Bean gives 5 points to Wonko.

433 is revised (433/1).

I'm using a slightly liberal interpretation of Rule 31 here: Uncle
Psychosis' votes were received, by my mail server, after Voting had
closed, but they were sent from HIS mail server before Voting closed. R31
says "Votes may only be cast during the Voting"; even though the votes
were *received* late, they were in fact cast (sent) before the deadline.

Other end-of-nweek stuff:

The PIG is hungry. It eats Proposal 421.
Rocky throws a Big Rock onto the Grid at 17,18.

Everyone with queued Grid movements gets to move:

Rob moves to 5,4
The Voice moves to 6,6. E spends 10 points to fly the friendly skies
with Elbonian Airways, ultimately landing at 11,7.
Wonko moves to 18,6.
Baron von Skippy moves to 4,12. (I know eir move specified 12,4 but that
would be impossible; I'm assuming e merely transposed the digits.)
Bean Runs to 13,11.
Scoff! moves to 17,15, fires eir Pinball Gun at Antonio (who moves two
spaces to 20,18). Then Scoff! buys a new Pinball Gun (2 points).

Now, vote counting and sundry related stuff:

426/0 fails (3-3-5).
Bean loses 1 point.

427/0 passes (4-2-5).
Created 443/0.
Bean scores 9 points.

428/0 fails (4-4-3).
Rob loses 4 points.

Thus ends the nweek.

Nweek 9 begins, and the following events happen:

The new Gremlin number is 68.
The Immunity Idol is awarded to The Voice (again).
The Token of Proposals is awarded to The Voice (as the Bandwidth Gremlin
becomes Active).

(This involves a potentially-controversial interpretation of the rules:
Motions for Respect don't count as normal Proposals for purposes of
scoring, but they do acquire votes. The Voice is the one who proposed
Rob's Declaration of Respect, and with it, eir proposals acquired 27
affirmative votes. If you don't count that, then Scoff! receives the Token
with eir total of 22 votes.)

The weather kicks in...

It's cold, but technically it's not below freezing (tell that to my
driveway, though...) It's been above freezing for three Characteristic
changes, so all Wet squares evaporate and the Yeti enters Limbo.

A Ball of Wax falls from the heavens and lands at (12,3).

This week's Colour Commentator is Uncle Psychosis.

That should do it, methinks.
