Patience is not my strongest virtue

“Please allow sufficient time to process your registration,” they said.

“When you are accepted, your name will be posted,” they said.

It’s been almost a week, B.A.A. Most people I know who qualified in my bracket have been formally accepted. Get on it.

Please stop making me think that I spelled my name wrong or something.

Don’t even make me beg.

  1. Good luck!
    My aunt just got her notification today…there is still hope! :)

  2. Did you use 2 different addresses? Maybe that’s it? If so, I’m going to have the same problem.

  3. You will be in. Some people just seem to be taking longer than others for whatever reason. Your spot is held though. The message also said that :) See you in April!

  4. maybe they’re trying to build anticipation. jerks.

  5. I know people at the BAA. Want me to go hound them? 😉

  6. I’d be a nervous wreck. You’ll get in though. 6 minutes is a nice bank of time. Just keep checking the entrants list on the BAA web site. :-) and when you DO get your acceptance we must set up a meet up in April!!

  7. To distract you, check out the game sushi cat. You can play in online or download it for a buck on your phone. You make the cat fatter by feeding it sushi. What’s not to love?

    • OH MY GOD. The fat cat and his crush on the pink cat. I’m dying. I played through the entire game. I hope there are more levels!

      • If you buy the game, they have a bonus honeymoon game! I’m so you share my love of fat cats and silly game.

  8. You’ll get in. Don’t worry. You ran the time, they just need to do the processing.

    On another note, I LOVE that crazy cartoon in this post!

  9. Good luck!!!!

  10. this ms.paint post is the best. BY FAR.

    I see a book of MS Paint art in your future. :)
    also, I’m sure you’ll get in – fingers crossed!

  11. Hope you get your confirmation very soon! You more than deserve to be running this April. Love the pictures. :)

  12. Congratulations Shelby!!! I work for the BAA host hotel; would love to meet up around that weekend if possible! :-)

  13. Hello there! This article could not be written any
