I only entered two, which played against each other in the quarter finals! Grrr! ;)

Untitled II and Modern Romance. Any other poems that were entered were not written by me - but were darn good entries! ... And I STILL like Pip's Baby! :lol:

Well as people are owning up and only one of mine made it past qualifying anyhoo I shall still retain a modicum of mystery* and just say that mine were either about teenage dolls, rip off anthems on Discworld heroes or valentines to bears of very little brain :angelic-innocent:

* because I've already forgotten the titles... :shock: :mrgreen:

People already know I wrote Modern Romance, and Untitled II is no longer in the running, so I don't think it matters that people know I penned it!

You may not remember the titles, Jan, but I found it really easy to remember the title of Untitled II ... :lol: :lol:

OK, if we're taking credit mine were the Star Trek TNG/Voyager crossover You Can't keep a Good Man Down, the Colin Smythe thing, both of which fell at the first hurdle and A Trick which crashed out of the first knock-out round

I quite like the Colin Smythe one, somehow thought it was one of Pooh's though :)

If everyone owns up as to what stories they wrote, the writers of the two stories in the final can be guestimated. :roll:

That sounds like the name of a Solicitors office!

They are obviously neighbours to 'sad, sorrowful, sulky, souls' ;) :lol:

I'll be going to my solicitors, Soo, Grabbit and Runne to see if anything can be done about it.

When I worked in the courts we had a real local firm called Wright Hassall and Co - they mainly did conveyancing (property law) and divorce cases :lol:
