Hey. I just wanted to mention that I've been playing along with previous TDs, but this is the first one where I'm actually officially participating. I was too shy to do it for real before, but I've been getting over my shyness in recent months.

Part of the reason for the distribution of sheep and other answers is the small number of contestants. These games used to attract in the neighborhood of 50 players.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.
