Green Room - Week 18 - Day 1

One of the topics changed from when I first posted. I'm mentioning it to make sure you saw the change: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1014004.html

That's what happens when I move something up on the schedule and don't go back to make sure I deleted it from the original spot! :O


Apparently, the Russians need money. Or at least *a* Russian needs money. Not sure if you saw that or not.

I need to start posting that with my own Paypal information, just to see how much I could get! ;)


The Work Room is open for those looking for partners: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1014035.html

oh, and of course the boards are shifting beneath are feet with this week's results: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1013728.html

You are!

Sorry for the radio silence here :erk: I've come to the conclusion that I'm getting too old for this working-X-days-in-a-row-without-a-break stuff. Today's my first day off in over a week. I'd like to be productive but so far I can only muster typing this, eating a bagel, and staring off into space. I am utterly exhausted, tbh.

In other news my Oakley needs an ultrasound. He's not absorbing protein and other nutrients from whatever he eats. He's had digestive issues all his life. My poor Bup-Bup :(

Poor baby boy! Hugs...

I know :( He's otherwise his usual self, especially when we go work a walk. Then he remembers that he doesn't have the energy and *asks* me if we can go home when we're not even halfway through it :/
May. 12th, 2017 06:10 pm (UTC)
Oh no! Puppy! <3 <3

Also, it's interesting to note that I don't ever remember seeing so many people looking for intersection partners...
May. 12th, 2017 01:20 pm (UTC)
Just eyeballing a list, there is a high number of people left in the competition who have never had an Intersection before (or not in a long time).

The social dynamic has also changed, so people aren't interacting as much outside Idol as they have in other seasons. That creates a "OMG, I need to find someone!" whereas you can tell the vets, because they are the ones who had someone already lined up, "just in case". :)
May. 12th, 2017 01:28 pm (UTC)
I thought all that too but I wasn't going to actually post it, LOL.

I'd contacted a potential intersection partner even before you posted the first topic this season. I'm obviously an old vet :D

It's nice when our Overlord actually acknowledges these things. XD

I kinda feel bad that I got voted out when I did because, although I didn't ask anyone in advance about intersecting, the one person I probably would have asked was scrambling to find someone this morning, and I'm pretty sure he would've worked with me because we've intersected before.

Instead I asked another former intersection partner if he'd home game intersect with me, but I've yet to hear if he will.

Hey, can somebody tell me if they see a line through my username like I do? I want to know why it's there. It's not like I've abandoned LJ...????
May. 12th, 2017 01:41 pm (UTC)
It looks normal to me! Nothing weird on this end :)
May. 12th, 2017 01:57 pm (UTC)
Oh, that's good, I guess...I think? I'm still seeing it on my end. Weird. Maybe it's to differentiate me from a paid user?
May. 12th, 2017 03:57 pm (UTC)
First thing: try clearing your browser cache; a bad bit of data in the cache could cause the problem you're describing.

If that doesn't fix it, contact LiveJournal customer support... and mention to them that other users don't see the line through your name, just you when you're logged in. It could be a problem with your personal account settings...

I've installed The Ring technology in Idol.

Whenever you see a line through your name, you have 24 hours to live... :(
May. 12th, 2017 01:57 pm (UTC)
I take it this is your way to extort me for cookies?
May. 12th, 2017 03:59 pm (UTC)
Well, he's got to extort somebody for cookies, as I refuse to declare him "dead to me"...
May. 12th, 2017 03:33 pm (UTC)
I checked both on my phone and computer and it looks normal to me.
May. 12th, 2017 02:24 pm (UTC)
Looks like I got dumped out of this one just in time *hides in bushes*
May. 12th, 2017 03:35 pm (UTC)
I emailed Gary my relief that I got voted out just before intersections XD (not playing the social game this season has kind of put me at the detriment that I wouldn't have necessarily known how to approach it).
May. 12th, 2017 03:51 pm (UTC)
I know we would have made an awesome intersection and smoked all them mo-fo's =D
May. 12th, 2017 03:21 pm (UTC)
It's always fascinating to watch the intersection process happen, as well as nerve-wracking when you're inside it.

There are a lot of folks who have been radio silent in the workroom so far - maybe they all had plans?

I pm'd the last person I had an intersection deal with, in season eight I think, because I was excited to write with her then and still am now. So if there is someone keeping track tonithegreat and I are off the table this round.
May. 12th, 2017 03:45 pm (UTC)

that's a great pair, excited to see what you two come up with!!

May. 12th, 2017 05:14 pm (UTC)
Aw thank you! Honestly, I was focused enough on finding a partner that I've paid no attention to the prompts, time to go and do that now I suppose.
May. 13th, 2017 05:17 am (UTC)
I need to get my gears grinding! Should be fun! Right?

I responded to your PM.
May. 12th, 2017 05:19 pm (UTC)
Cool, I've replied.
May. 12th, 2017 06:37 pm (UTC)
I'm relieved to have a partner, doubly relieved that it happened quickly. Perks of replying first to the workroom post, I guess!
May. 12th, 2017 08:11 pm (UTC)
LOL, I just realized why I'm seeing a line only not just through my username, but everyone else's:

I'm not wearing my glasses.

May. 12th, 2017 10:22 pm (UTC)
I pulled the whole spend 15 minutes looking for your glasses while they're sitting on top of your head thing this morning.

May. 13th, 2017 01:44 pm (UTC)
My first thought when I find my glasses after losing them is "Oh, now I can see to find my glasses!"
May. 13th, 2017 03:07 pm (UTC)

the every day conundrum!

If I had my glasses I could see to find my glasses...

May. 13th, 2017 02:40 pm (UTC)
Hery Gary, if because that's just how life is something you don't get a partner, do the unpartnered just become partners?

What if attempts to be in touch never happen?

Can one just write both entries and just submit them and you'll work out the rest.

I don't have time with a million other things going on to worry about the craziness of LJ Idol other then the writing. Popularity contests in real life are hard enough and I've always been popular for being the loner.
May. 13th, 2017 08:42 pm (UTC)
The last two people left would automatically become partners by default. Last time I saw the list though, there were other options,
