As you may remember, I finished 2nd in the last contest and won a Stargate Atlantis uniform. That sounds impressive (well, maybe) until you find out 1st place won a Mac Laptop and a live video chat with David Hewlett!

This time around, the prizes were the same only the live video chat is with Amanda Tapping. So how did I do?

I logged onto the contest page and saw a topic called 'results'. I paused for a moment. This is it. This is the moment I've been waiting for. This is the last moment I will have where I have that exciting anticipation of knowing I could possibly win a Mac, chat with AMANDA FREAKING TAPPING and throw a huge party to boot. I clicked on the thread. They listed the winners in descending order:
10th place-- nope, not me!
9th place-- not me either!
8th place-- not me!
7th place-- nope!!
6th place-- nope!!!
5th place-- nope!!!!
4th place-- NOPE!!!!!
3rd place --NOPE!!!!!!!

--this could only mean one thing. I have either won another uniform, or I have won the grand prize. I was very hopeful because the 2 videos I thought could beat me had already passed by. I slowly scrolled down:

wait for it...

wait for it....

wait for it.....

wait for it.....

2nd place: 'The Gate Room' by amoriconi

Yeah, that was anticlimatic, sorry! I won 2nd-- again. I won another uniform which I will undoubtedly force my family and friends to wear in my next attempt to win the laptop, chat and awesome stargate party.
Booo! :)

yeah, kind of a bummer. Oh well, if I keep winning 2nd place uniforms I can start my own series. :)
