The Continued Problem with Transparency

So the company that published my short story a while back, holds many similar contests.  Currently the publisher is informing the next round of winners if their submissions will be published in the upcoming anthology.  Because I had such a great experience with Absolute XPress last time, I naturally jumped at the chance to enter the latest contest as well.  Many of my friends (David, JR, Amie) also submitted stories to this latest flash fiction round.  Some of my friends have heard back from the publisher, but I have not... AND I AM GOING INSANE.  The lack of response doesn't mean anything as far as will I be published/will I not be, AXP informed everyone that the decisions would be made prior to the 15th, so my concern is purely becasue I want to know rather than I fear what is coming.  BUT I WANT TO KNOW!

Making matters worse, I'll be at work today without internet connection.  Okay, okay, that may not actually make matters worse because I won't spend my time at my email frantically clicking "Check for New Messages", but it will feel like it is making matter worse.

Boo to you transparency!
