    Well done.


    Thank you I'm sure. Imagine some are not celebrating & finding me a little tiresome

    Anyway, bound to be about a lot whilst Mt Buller is on - I shall afterwards disappear quietly back into my cave.

    BTW Bill - you failed to completely address the question! You have the best possible opportunity to reveal just what was your reaction to receiving the award!

    Congratulations anyway

    I was taken completely by surprise when Denis presented it to me last Thursday.
    I assume the other recipients reacted the same.

    As far as I know the nominees for the various medals are unaware they have even been nominated.
    In fact even now I still have no idea who nominated me.

    Well that's nice. The cat often escapes the bag with these sorts of things. It's much better to be taken by surprise. Also doesn't give the "shrinking violet" types the opportunity to wiggle out of attending their presentation.

    You may not know who nominated you but I trust you managed to thank God, the Academy, your first chess coach, your friends on the BB ...

    Baz, you there?

    Now the word that comes to mind from Libby's comment is 'troglodyte'.
    Do you happen to know the feminine form of 'troglodyte'? Just curious.

    I was thinking "bat" personally - "old bat" to special friends (as I pluck the grey hairs out).

    Sadly - 1st round loss for mine in Mt Buller, something about a capture with the wrong pawn ...

    Not aware that there is one. Troglodyte derives from the Greek name of a group of people who lived in present day Ethiopia. It comes from trogle meaning "hole" and I imagine these people typically lived in caves.

    Bill,
    Also congratulations for doing a top job and copping a flack from people who don't know better. There is no substitute for hard work.

    I'm sure Starter was not intending the term be taken as sledging. I word has been spoiled for me as I can't us it without thinking of the song "Wild Thing". That gets me thinking about Jimi Hendrix and it's all down-hill from there.

    There is something of a sledge there - if anyone is seeking to identify the cave-dweller I could be identified as. Don't spoil the moment for me. Takes me back to when I got to be one of the guys because I was the only girl in the office talking footy (proper footy - AFL) & cricket - not to mention belting them about playing mixed indoor cricket & mixed netball.

    These days I'm just slapping down those polite children who look at me as the equivalent of their mother and want to call me "Mrs Smith." Quite discomfiting. A troglodyte can seem like a real step up.

    hi Libby

    I will be quite honest here .
    There was no sledge intended.
    You did not need one.

    But on another thread I did nominate you for my appreciated post of the year (the stuff about registering chess as a sport).

    So, as for your gain in esteem from sledging, just remember the sporting cliche; "take it one triumph at a time".

    ^^ Now, that is a sledge.

    regards
