You're right. I must do something to change that. Not by becoming your neighbor, no, not that!

Re: The Best Xmas avatar of 2004 is...

This is a complete surprise so I haven't prepared a speech, but I would like to say... It's been a long hard slog and it's taken many, many years to achieve (non-****) artistic recognition. I'm so, so pleased with this award from the academy, It is, without a doubt, the highest accolade that guys like me aspire to and marks the pinnacle of my career. (And a Finnish beer is certainly the most expensive prize that I've ever won!)

Anyway, I must thank my partner, Mincing Vince (love you), my cat, Mrs Miggins (glad you can't talk - only joking) and my Grandad, "Fingers" Findlay who collected art before he went away and from whom I probably inherited my interest in it (this is for you, Grandad). Thanks also to my campaign team who have been up all night with me monitoring the votes. (It was so tense - just like watching your highest bid on an e-Bay auction, certain that you'll be gazumped at the last minute!!!). Thanks also to the other finalists, Hoygs, Hugo (my personal favourite) and Roswel who make this special by the high standard of their own work. Thanks to Pasi for organising. Finally, to my fans: thank you for your support (especially the two hundred or so complete strangers that I paid £5 each to register on the forum and vote for me). [tears type="BigSouthernJessie"] THANK YOU ALL!!!!!! [/tears]

Bill
