Green Room - Week 15 - Day 7

While I was busy saving this Green Room, you were busy saving the Bridge to Nowhere!

Or at very least, obtaining ear marks for whatever sort of marks on your ears that you freaks enjoy getting! Who knows when it comes to you people, you're always up to something!!

What I am up to is letting you know that tomorrow is the last day to vote in the poll http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/533331.html so if one of your favorites isn't doing as well as you think they should, it's time to advocate for them.

That also means that the two remaining bouncing immunities out there have to be passed off, via an email to me, by one hour before the poll deadline. (so, 7pm EST)

Tomorrow is also the deadline for Second Chancers to get in their entries for a poll of their own: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/533531.html so hopefully everyone is working on getting their entries completed.

Since I missed them over the past couple of days, Happy Belated Plus Sized Tuesday and Bruce Campbell Wednesday! Also, I hope everyone had a Happy National Margarita Day! I'm sure today is something as well. so, happy whatever it is! Mostly though, it's Deadline Day. So Happy Deadline Day!

Ash Wednesday is in there too for those that are taking part in lent.

Not that this is important to me, but I do believe I'm first too. I must be really bored.

Yay, first! :)

And Bruce Campbell played a character called "Ash" in the Evil Dead movies, so Gary covered that one, too :)

Ooooo I want to be the first to comment in a green room!

I can't be the first when Gary posts them at 7 in the morning because I sleep at 7 in the morning, but I don't sleep at... 11:30 at night.

Off to finish my second chance entry... Once I think of something to write about.

Sometimes Gary posts these suckers at like 4 AM my time. I love he GR and I love being first... but yeah... no thanks.

I prefer sleeping as late as I possibly can!

Hee, Bruce Campbell Wednesday! But wait, isn't every day National Margarita Day?

Why didn't I get a notice about this GR? I had to go all the way to my flist to find it. *kicks LJ*

I'm going to attempt to write a couple of sentences on a story I've been working on, and then I'm going to go faceplant into bed. Hope you're all having a good morning, night, whatever! :)

I didn't get the notice either! I was reading my friends list for once, minding my own business and trying to avoid getting ready for bed (even though I promised Java I would try to go to bed early... )

And there was a GR on my friends page. *kicks LJ*

Dude, I didn't get the e-mail notification that there was a GR! I discovered it on accident!

That being said... Plus Sized Tuesday? Gary, are you calling me fat?

I guess I could put in a real comment. I am thisclose to paying off my car with my tax refund (ever since I found out my car doesn't have a timing belt, so I don't need to worry about replacing it.)

Miss Kitty ate up a chunk of that though, so I can't pay all of it off this month as planned. But next month is likely. That extra money will come in handy... to pay off medical and vet bills :)

I'm off for the next two days after today. If I end up being off Sunday too, that means I'm off the entire weekend. That's unheard of unless you're on vacation.

:boggle:

In other news, last night's Survivor hit a new low in female group dynamics, I make an awesome banana chocolate chip bread, and rumplebuttkins's entry definitely needs more love than it already has. It's sweet, funny, and it made me grin :)

I am so disappointed with the women's tribe on Survivor.

Have a good 2-3 days off.

Now I want banana chocolate chip bread.

I finally finished A Dance With Dragons, that mother of a beast, but now I don't know what to do with myself. The last few months, I have been consumed with all things A Song of Ice and Fire, and now... nothing. I guess I'll just have to spend my time looking forward to the second season. Though, I do have plenty of other books - that have been sitting on my shelves for months - to keep me occupied. I want to see if I can read 50 books this year because my reading stats have been dismal every year since 2008.

Aside from that, I'm going to enjoy my last three days of freedom by doing absolutely nothing. Should be fun :D

Hi greenies :)

I'm just popping in quickly to say hello. I'm about to make pizza for tea - yummy! I've been really slack reading entries so I'm going to get onto that (my) tonight.

Have an awesome Thursday everyone. Just to put your mind at rest, it's 5pm here and the world didn't end! Yay! That does mean, of course, that you're still going to have to: go to that boring meeting/clean the toilet/shower/buy groceries. But on the bright side, it's almost Friday!

I've got....nothing to do today. It's so bad I might have to clean the kitchen out of sheer boredom.

Or maybe I can drag my husband away from his writing long enough to go see a movie :) I really want to see The Woman in Black AND The Muppets, both of which I've heard great things about. I can go for ages thinking there's nothing good at the cinema, and now two at once!

Trying something different with the screening process, since LJ seems to have problems with it.

Obviously, if we end up getting a bunch of spammers again, that will have to be revisited.

But until then, let me know if you have a problem.

I have actual work to do at my job this week! Yay for finally coding stuff again.

...But a big plus-sized BOO to the fact that my connection to the client whose code I'm messing with drops if I'm not active in the system for like half a second. I go to look at a spec, and my connection is hung when I go back to my code. Then it drops and I have to wait 30 minutes or so to get back in. Wahhhhh.

That said, the changes I made yesterday are working, so I'm being productive, just very slowly and frustratingly.

Yesterday I had my first full shift as a service coordinator, and I did not totally freak out. Yay! But my Team Leader didn't get my updated availability, so I have to remember to redo that. I am off for the next two days, though, so I'm not going to worry about it right now.

I meant to write my SCI entry last night.

Instead, I ended up getting really sick after dinner. I wonder if maybe something I ate gave me food poisoning.

I called out of work today. That means I have the whole day to write my entry now, although I may go lie down for a bit first.

The worst of it is over with, but I'm still fairly dehydrated and just feel generally icky.

It's always "Plus Sized Tuesday" when I'm around, LOL. *pats belly*

Seriously though, I had bowling on Tuesday and I brought some delicious GiGi's cupcakes (vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting and appropriately-colored Mardi Gras sprinkles) to share with my bowling team. Yum! I didn't bowl too well in the first game, but I made up for it in the next two (85, 125, 126).

Still busy reading entries. Tonight we're going out to another Murder Mystery dinner theater - "Murder at Club Babalu" (based on I Love Lucy). I'm looking forward to it - maybe I'll win a prize for solving the mystery again! :)

I've barely gotten to read any entries this week :(

I'm sorry everyone. My RL really couldn't suck anymore. Free time? A concept I wish I could understand. The big tribes make it harder for me to even finish one at the moment. I'd say I hope life slows down for me soon... But who am I kidding? There's nothing I can think of that can help me out at the moment. I hate it :/

I've briefly considered leaving Idol, but then I realize it's about the only thing I do for "me" and I'd be giving into the forces that want my life to be constant working with no fun.... So I won't be doing that. It's just a struggle sometimes. I can only do what I can, I suppose. I am glad I do have something more to my weeks than just work, work, work though.

It's February and it's going to be eighty-freaking-three degrees today. I do not care to have another summer like we had last year.

In other news, tomorrow night it's supposed to get down to 37. Consequently, we are all sick. I have the can't-breathe, eyes-swollen-shuts.

I will, however, finish my entry today.

Just letting anyone curious know, that I have simply, first been perplexed on where to go with "high Wire" and it has taken a lot of thought, but also second, that I've had several "task" oriented things to take care of the last few days. I have a general flow in mind for my entry, but it's looking like it is going to be a bit of the "last minute" entry for me this time. Hate that. Seeing as how I was only 1 vote higher than the 3 who were tied for 2nd lowest in the first pole, I hate it even more, but who knows? Maybe I'll pull it off, any love will be appreciated! Lovins to all!

My longest Idol entry yet is now up. And I'm not sure how I feel about it, I like writing shorter pieces.

(Ok it could also be because it has me thinking a lot as there is some truth to it)
