I get a bottle of mead, too? Golly! Well, alas, I should be very
much surprised if I can attend Pennsic. But I know what I want to
do with "my" bottle:
I am exercising my right, earned fair and square under the "good
sport" clause, vol II, chap 3, sect 5, para 1. I declare Elayne's
song to be the winner of the "Henry's Favorite" category in this
+ 10 points: written by a newbie
+ 10 points: published by a newbie (if you don't think that takes
     guts, you have forgotten what being a newbie feels like)
- 10 points: filked from a modern song
+  5 points: filked from Suzanne Vega
+ 20 points: portrays me as "courteous to newbies" at a time when
     I was under extreme physical and emotional duress. That 
     makes me feel really good.
+ 10 points: nordic in style. Vega is 1/4 norwegian. Elayne looks
     like Freya and sings like Thor. 
So, please present my bottle of mead to Elayne. She already told
me she would be at Pennsic, so we are good to go on that count.
