Vote - Week 14

A few words from me:



Welcome to the first poll of the New Year!

I hope you had a nice holiday season - and now we are back to the business of finding the Next LJ Idol! Which is a whole different kind of fun! The kind of fun that keeps you up late at night writing (and reading) entries.


This week the topic was "resolute" and there were some straight forward ones on the subject of resolutions - and there were some that came at the topic from a completely different angle. All in all though this particular poll has some real gems in it to be found. So make sure you read as many entries as you can (Hopefully all of them!) and vote to keep your favorites in this thing!


Because this particular week they are going to need you more than they ever have before.


The Month of Doom has started. It's going to start slow, but it's going to build - like all good Doom.


How slow is it starting? This week we are losing the bottom two vote getters from each tribe!


Voting starts now and ends Monday Jan 5th at 1pm EST. Good luck to everyone!


Unfortunately two people did miss the deadlines. Calling them "fan favorites" would certainly be accurate. One was a newbie and one was a veteran. Both will be missed (although hopefully they will stick around these parts! Goodbye to morning_stand and shannon_elaine


Which means the "march to the Top 75" is about to become a half step!*G*

This might not matter, but I just noticed it because of the way I vote. I think tigrkittn should be placed after theafaye

I don't mean to spread rumors, but boxsofrain told me that she SCOFFS at the month of doom and spydielives says that it's all talk.

And heykatie told me the real month of doom is in her pants. I don't even know what that means, but it sounds like big talk.

Well, this will all be interesting since I know we are going to be at one milestone for sure after this week. Smile!

And everyone wrote something this week. Accept those who had to drop and the ones who missed the deadline. Good job you all. Smile!

Well now, let's see who moves on?

Month of DOOM, hmmm.

How time flies...
Well, it is nice to know that *sometimes* G can be predictable.

As of the four losses today, my count stands at

81 (42%) Original Players Left

If we lose six this round, that means those of us who make it will be in the Top 75... and bye's go away.

Unless I miss-counted someone??

I'm pretty certain that had I not forgotten to write an entry this week, I probably would have been voted off anyways, I've been within 1-2 votes of being voted out for a few weeks now, and since there are two going home this week one of them probably would have been me. lol. I'm sorry to whoever is going home instead of me though!

I hope you all are having a great new year so far :)

Finished voting in the second tribe. Got one more to go. Perhaps I'll get it this evening? There has been some incredible writing. I'm a little confused by the results of the first two polls, as some people aren't getting as much vote love as I thought they'd be getting.
