Default [Dixonary] Please vote in Round 2785, FEERIN

From time to time, Google Groups doesn't deliver a message to some of us. On the chance that some people therefore didn't get the voting request for FEERIN, I'm sending another copy (along with the note about extending the voting time until about eight and a half hours from now) in what GG should think is a new thread rather than a reply to the existing one. If this duplicates something you already got, my apologies for wasting a bit of your time..


************************************************** ***


It's a bit past the deadline for voting on FEERIN, but only seven people have voted. Since the time that I chose the deadline, I've gotten more visibility into our schedule for today. We're supposed to return to the hotel at 4 pm Jordan time, with enough free time there to compile the results. So, I'm extending the deadline by 9 (original extension email mistakenly said 7) hours in the hopes of scaring up a few more. The new deadline s 4 pm today (Thurs., March 9) in Jordan, or, also today:

3 pm in Continental Europe
2 pm in the UK
9 am in US EST
8 am in US CST
6 am in US PST

and sometime in New Zealand, but our player from there has voted and I'm too pressed for time right now to look it up or figure it out. New players or returning veterans in other places will have to figure out their own conversions.

Our group may run late. The real deadline is the above time or when I get back to my room, whichever is later.

So, the rest of you - especially those who sent in definitions - c'mon and vote!

> Folks,
> Eleven definitions of FEERIN follow. One is its real meaning. The others are the product of your fellow players' feverish imaginations in their devilish efforts to deceive you. They have been edited for format consistency and are in order by character count. Please vote for two that you like for any reason by public reply to this message before the deadline that follows the list.
> 1. fairy-like.
> 2. an invocation.
> 3. [Obs.] foreign.
> 4. an early, crudely made musket.
> 5. a furrow plowed as a guide for subsequent work.
> 6. a particularly obnoxious monkey of Southeast Asia.
> 7. expected expenses for a journey or a business scheme.
> 8. trees blown down, or branches blown off by the wind; brushwood.
> 9. [Colloq. Southern USA] a warm gust of wind that precedes a thunderstorm.
> 10. a dark grey mineral constituting one of the primary sources of iron ore, principally as magnetite.
> 11. fairy gold paid to humans (valueless, for it turns to dust in daylight); hence anything worthless.
> Votes are due 33 hours from now: Thursday, March 9 at 7 am Jordan time. That’s 9 pm PST, 11 pm CST and 11:59 pm plus one minute EST on Wed., March 8, in the U.S.; also 5 am in the UK, 6 am on the Continent and 6 pm in New Zealand on Thursday the 9th. You may want to check the time conversion that affects you.
> New players are welcome to vote, even if you didn't submit a definition for this word - as are, of course, veteran players who happened not to. Full rules at http://www.dixonary.net/game-rules-and-advice/rules <http://www.dixonary.net/game-rules-and-advice/rules> .
