Welcome to the game, and good luck!
After this round, I think i will take a page from Rhy's book and start the rounds at a set time every day.

The rounds will begin at 700 AM or PM (whichever is closer to when I get the memo).

Hmm, from the memo I'm thinking snow, bradon or 4demo.

Safety for snow for now.

In response to the psych question - I've put up my decs but haven't got a single present yet. eek!

Hoping I still have enough time to order from the internet and receive in time. Can't stand going shopping!

I did a bunch of internet shopping last night, have two errands to run today, and am pretty much done shopping. We aren't decorating much this year because of the construction project on our house... don't need decorations out when the drywall dust starts falling.

I'm going to put in a vote right now for 4demo. I could see her write that memo, plus, what good is it to me if she follows me into here if I can't vote for her?!?!

Glad the game has started! I'm excited for Christmas, mostly because I can get the CDs I've wanted for a while. I wish I could drive already.

Anyway, safety for Jayo. The memo/psych are kind of vague - maybe our boss is trying not to say too much.

Well you guys know me the memo/psych answer god....
I think the wording and the use of "ought" instead of "should"...leads me to think it is not someone from the usa
The "Good Luck" memo is weak...so I think it is probably a weak brit...Jayo or Sky...
voting Jayo
Lets get a clear in round one guys!!!!!


the stronger the fed govt gets the less you free you will be,,,,This is a no brainer...

I totally disagree, Sky. Snow has a young son, 14 I think, so she would most likely be prepared or at least mostly prepared for Christmas and the Boss said "No. I ought to prepare, but I have not.." This sounds more to me like a younger person, such as yourself, who doesn't have wife/husband and children so can wait to prepare for the holiday.Will safety for kitty-cat for now.

Well I'm blissfully unaware of the nuances of having children, so that's understandable. I was commenting mostly on the sentence syntax over the actual content.

I am open to who we clear this round.

I would like to actually clear someone this round... can we get a majority? It does us no good to do a MoO vote... the same number of people will be fired whether it is a MoO or a strong majority, and with a MoO, the Boss learns who their rat is.

That being said, I don't want to make anyone angry for voting with them, so I will vote with anyone who says they are willing to play the game...

If you feel, mocha, that the memo sounds like 4demo, then I would have no problem joining your vote. Changing to 4demo to attempt to get a clear.

Bradon, I should say, it sounds like it could be 4demo... it could also be many other people... but I am comfortable risking my place in this game for a majority vote on her.

The phrasing of the memo is strange, but it doesn't tell us too much.
I'm going to vote bradon simply because the use of tenses in her last post sounds similar... there's not much else to go for!!
SirHar what is with this "weak Brit" thing haha... also whether Ireland is British or not is somewhat debatable

HABS, is the 7 am/pm start of round on Braingle Time or your local timezone? (Doesn't really matter, just curious )

I feel like the psych Q&A can be interpreted in vastly different ways. Some people like to go "all out" on Christmas, with extensive decorating, baking, shopping for gifts, sending holiday cards, visiting family, throwing or attending parties, and who knows what else - someone in this category might have done a lot of preparation already, but still feel unprepared! Others might not celebrate Christmas all that much, if at all - maybe buy presents for a few family members or friends and put up few decorations. In this case, "not prepared" might actually mean "haven't started preparing because there's not that much to prepare so it can wait."

I also thought it was strange the Boss said "I ought to prepare, but I have not" instead of "I am not [preparing]." It makes it hard to tell if the Boss just isn't preparing anything right now or hasn't prepared anything at all. Probably me way over-thinking things...

Voting mocha for now.

Sorry, I thought I had specified that it is EST (Eastern Standard Time (GMT -5)). It is an hour ahead of "Braingle" (Central) Time.

Hmm well obviously a clear clear (if you know what I mean) is ideal in round 1, esp in 10 player game

Go for me if you like but if there is an alternative majority ye would be more comfy with then I'll join it

Safety for the one and only

Voting for SirHar. He seams like a guy that procrastinates.

Take all sorrow out of life and you take away all richness, and depth, and tenderness. The capacity of sorrow belongs to our grandeur. It is the furnace that melts hearts together in love. In loving memory of my dear friend Guy - take care Goobs . .

I was just thinking about how we needed one of those... thanks demo!

jayo, there is a majority not for you that you could join if you are serious about joining one. We'd love to have you! We need 5 people voting together for a rat proof majority.

Jayo, can you please clarify who you are voting for? It seems like you are voting for yourself, which does absolutely nothing for anyone (if you get fired, you clear yourself, which we would have known to be cleared because you were fired...)

Em, there is never a point to voting for yourself, that isn't where my vote was


Switching to 4demo for the clear, should be solid enough to clear, no harm to get one or two more
Don't worry about being a lemming, if you don't vote in the majority you won't win as an employee

4demo it is

I really should be working right now, but just wanted to say I'll be mostly offline for the next ~16 hours due to an exam, presentation, and research paper due today. Ditto for Wednesday when I have two final exams. (I will be online at least a couple of times each round, don't worry, but less frequently and for shorter periods of time.)

I've never played with Jayo before (that I remember) so I'm not familiar with his usual style, but his behavior's sort of striking me as weird: not clearly stating who he voted for at first ("the one and only" is unhelpful to some/most of us), plus the comment about "don't worry about being a lemming". (He's completely right about that, just seems very comfortable for being a lemming if he's an employee, might be a Rat/Boss move to get more firing candidates.)

Will think about this more next round if he and I are both still around. Goodnight!

Jayo, the only way to win as an employee by being a lemming, is if you are actually voting for and have enough votes, for the boss. Otherwise, you're just clearing a fellow employee, and placing yourself on the firing list. Not saying 4demo isn't our boss, we don't know, but it's highly unlikely that we'd get the boss in the first round. I"d rather stay out of a majority for a while.

To be fair, if I really was the Boss, I'd be protesting a bit harder (and wondering why I don't have a very good Rat).

I don't mind being cleared next round, don't have any strong suspicions but if pushed I'd say Snowy
