Green Room - Week 24 - Weekend Edition

Good morning,

First and foremost - thank you to everyone who answered my call yesterday: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/935302.html and those who will be doing so in the near future. That really means a lot. Thank you.

***

Another call was answered last night, that call being "Who is going to be eliminated?" http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/935436.html followed by "What is the new topic?" http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/935840.html and "Is there a Work Room?" http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/936125.html

So it was more of a series of calls.

***

There was also a bit of math that was discovered last night. Some people already realized it and since I don't know if *everyone* has, and I mentioned to one person, I want to make sure that I'm mentioning it to *everyone*.

We are at the Top 5.

kathrynrose has immunity next week, her first and only week that can be played.
She was also given lrig_rorrim's bye on the way out the door. Next week is the last time a bye may be used.

So, she can hold onto it and NOT use it. Or give it to someone else.

IF she gives it to someone else - and they decide to use it (because you don't *have* to use a bye just because you have it. Some people decide not to use them as a matter of principle. But we are playing "worst case scenario" so let's assume they do... then 2 people out of the 5 can not be eliminated.

(Note: they could also decide to give it to someone else, BUT then that's the same situation with different names, so let's just play this out as if they keep it and use it)

But there is also one person, prog_schlock who has not used their topic bye. Again, it's the last week they could use it - or give it to someone else.

That means 3 out of the 5 can not be eliminated. Which means there are 2 people competing for 1 spot.

Who will those 2 be? Will there only be 2 or will the people with byes NOT pull that trigger? (Does it even make sense for them *not* to pull it?)

I'll admit, it has me on the edge of my seat waiting to see how this is going to play itself out!

A poll with two people would be pretty "wee". ;)

I have no ethical issues with using byes. Sometimes, a body has an especially busy week and just can't get an entry out. I took a bye during the Christmas week (where like half the field took byes). This is graduation weekend at my school plus i am going to be spending all day today prepping for and then attending an awards show. But then i might have a writing window on Monday assuming nothing comes up.

All of this is a long way of saying "I came to write so I'm planning on finishing a piece but if life gets in the way i might consider the bye again. "

Sorry that's not helpful. :/

Hmmm...that's positively nefarious...almost as if someone planned it that way...

Who could it be? Who knows what evil lurks--

Fuck it, it's Gary.

I just got back from a trip to St Augustine (thanks to a cousin with a camper who was spending the weekend there and let us crash with them).

It was my first trip to the oldest city in the US!

What were you doing this extended weekend - and for those who are vying for the title of LJ Idol, what have you been *working on*?

I've been working on coming up with a decent idea. Sigh.

Or any idea.
