Welcome to the 10/28/2013 Waiting List!
Hey everyone — just wanted to quickly introduce myself as the new Listkeeper, which is a role that I am excited and delighted to take on. The lovely somethingaquamarine has been Listkeeper for as long as I’ve been around, and it’s to her credit that the Waiting List has been a positive experience for hundreds of Bees, including myself. To briefly recount her diligent work:
– Her first list was posted 1/21/13; she was #173 on that list
– In total, she posted 40 lists over a span of 9 months
– The longest list reached 368 and the shortest reached 233
– She covered as many as 11 proposals and as few as 1 proposal per week
– In total, she wrote proposal blurbs for a whopping 243 proposals
– Her last list was posted 10/21/13; she was #37 on that list
I hope you’ll join me in thanking her again, and crossing our fingers that it won’t be long before she announces her own engagement. We’ll see you around the boards!
