Green Room - Week 15 - Day 7

Thursday!  We made it to Thursday!

That said...  your entries are due in 3 days!  Which is nice because it means clauderainsrm will have returned and I will have a few extra minutes in the morning that don't end up with me saying "Oh grap!  Green Room!"

Or attempting to be witty at ungodly hours.

However, I feel somewhat invested in you all now so this may mean I pay more attention than I have.

Hey, if you ever want entertainment, go into the archives and start at the beginning.  Seeing what this community and contest were in 2006 compared to what it is now....  amazing.  You will also see the evolution of me as tech support.  And all the times I screwed up the polls.  Good stuff.

Have a great Thursday!

Green Room - Week 15 - Day 6

Hump Day!  This is already the longest week ever.  No nightmare last night so that's a step in the right direction.

Which is good because I think the nightmare the other night caused me to sprain my pinky.  (If clauderainsrm reads this, he will do a little dance of joy.)


Current Topic:

Work Room:

Department meeting today followed by work that will hopefully lead me to a promotion.  Yesterday I was pretending that I have money and looking at homes for sale in my town.  I should not have done this.

In other news, our fearless (?) leader lost a fight with Sandusky, OH yesterday.  Way to go Sandusky!  (He's OK...)

With that...  I am off to prepare for another day.  Keep crackin' on those entries!

Green Room - Week 15 - Day 5

Good Tuesday morning, Idolers.

I had a horrific nightmare that was ended only because my alarm clock went off.  Never have I been happier for the alarm.  Have you ever had a night like that?  Felt like I kept waking up and going right back into the dream.

Are you all getting your posts ready for the poll?  I see a lot of comments about research so hopefully you're making progress.

Here are your daily links:

Heat index in the 100 degree area today for Wisconsin.  Tomorrow's high?  77.

Have a great day!

Green Room - Week 15 - Day 4

Another super quick Green Room because work beckons.

Monday... we meet again.  After getting nearly 19 hours of sleep between Friday and Saturday night, I've dropped back down to my usual 6.  Wheee.  Which one of you hid the Pepsi??

I best get moving for the start of another fun-filled work week!  Behave yourselves!  :-)

Green Room - Week 15 - Day 3

A late and quick Green Room today.  Someone got almost 10 hours of NyQuil induced sleep.  I don't want to name names though...

Current Topic:

Humidity in Wisconsin kicks back in today.  I'm going to miss my summer Polar Vortex from last week.

I didn't hear any news overnight about the city of Columbus imploding.  They must not have realized clauderainsrm is there yet.

Green Room - Week 15 - Day 2

Well.  It's been about a million years or so since I've done one of these.  I'm sure most of you have no idea who I am.  clauderainsrm was correct, though, in his statement that in earlier seasons I put forth the idea that it might be easier to just draw a winner from a hat and ban everyone else.  I was working 2 jobs then and trying to help maintain order in this madhouse.

Oh who am I kidding, it still may not be the worst idea I've ever had.  :-)

Regardless, here we are in a Saturday Green Room.

Per instructions here are the pertinent links:

The Current Topic:

The Work Room:

There is a breakfast buffet but I've hidden the bacon.  Ha!

Still amused that clauderainsrm told you about my secret plans to end seasons....

Have at it, Kids.  I'll be around.

Work Room - Week 15

It's a "writing oriented topic" for a group of writers!

What could possibly go wrong? ;)


For those who are going "What IS that?"

Not really anything else to say, without turning this Work Room completely meta. :)

Where is your head going on this one?

Topic - Week 15

I'm moving around this space, looking at all of the topics on the wall... thinking about each one.

and wondering.

Wondering what people are going to do? How will they be able to cope with the stresses of their lives and deal with the burdens that are upon them?

How will they function in society?

I sit and I ponder that for awhile.

Then, after some time, I go over to the wall and pull that topic down from the wall and put it here.

For you.

and the deadline to link your entry back to this thread is Sunday, July 27th at 7pm EDT

Have fun!

Green Room - Week 15 - Day 1

Last night there were eliminations: and a general update about this week's schedule: / a commercial break! :)

Coming soon - the new Topic and a Work Room to figure it all out in!


But since we are on the subject of vacations - what was the best vacation you ever went on? The worst?

Thank You!

To our newest Patrons (or Patreons) alephz and belgatherial!

And yes, this IS the Thank You that I promised in the Patreon page! :)

It's not the greatest Patreon page in the world, doesn't have a video or very much information. There are no set goals, and the incentives are things like "a thank you" or "I plug your project on Idol" or "Send me topic ideas and I'll use them"!

But everyone who goes there knows that's just kind of Idol. :)

I truly do appreciate it!

If anyone wants to join in on the fun (and get their own official Idol shout-out) the link is on the Update page: (Which you should be reading anyway!)

(Green Room, new Topic and Work Room being posted soon!)
