I was idly browsing the "Saints in our Book" page a week or so ago and noticed there were no monks at all in the 19,000s. None. That was most unusual and caught my eye. At that time, I was in the high 18,000s (with Your Mother and his gang of four sneaking up on me from behind). When I finally scaled the 19,000 peak, I checked again, hoping to see myself, and myself alone, in this exalted 19,000 category. I was shattered when I saw that an interloper had got there before me, one brian_d_foy! Now, his many blockbuster nodes notwithstanding, I doubted that he could have got past Your Mother and his gang of four that quickly, so the only other possibility was that he had sneakily descended onto the 19,000 plateau.
At that time, brian was still ahead of me, but has since dropped one behind me.
Hmmm ... I hope I'm not a suspect now.
Here's how it currently stands:

62 Your Mother 18716
63 wfsp 18340
Update: as at 24-Jan-2015 it is now:
22 toolic 39046
39 Your Mother 28788
40 eyepopslikeamosquito 28540
57 jdporter 23861
61 FunkyMonk 22652
73 wfsp 19164
74 brian_d_foy 19008
are currently engaged in a gripping duel I see. Update:
Twelve hours after writing this, I notice that toolic has just moved from one behind FunkyMonk to one ahead (18759 to 18758).
