Big congrats to the winner, especially to my bud B.A. for her DOUBLE domination! :)
And happy to see the runner-up for Hidalgo Vile. Makes me want to pull that one out of the trunk and get it circulating again (with a mention of the Meager Puddle runner-up in the cover letter, of course!) :)

Thanks! And apparently your titles are not as challenged as you believe...

'... I generally suck at titles...'

Apparently you don't ;)

Congratulations on both your victories :)

Lol :)

It's a good title, and though not everyone might agree, I think a good title buys you a little extra slush-reading time, in the same way a good first line does.

Woot! I'm a runner up. I loved the title 'The Department of Villainous Affairs'.

And of course, if at some point during the year, Barbara is unable to fulfil her duties as Puddle winner - chat show appearances, opening stores, red carpet walks at film festivals etc... ;)
