Green Room - Week 15 - Weekend Edition

Hello there, and welcome to the last day of some of your Idol Season 10 lives. Or at least the lives as contestants, which is of course the only lives that *really* count. The only lives that have actual meaning. Those "lives" you have with family, and friends, in that "outside world" known as "reality", we all know those are meaningless and quite possibly just the result of some sort of head trauma you experienced. Idol is the only reality that matters - and that is about to have a shake-up.

How big of a shake-up? Honestly, I have no idea. I woke up to 6 more votes that I haven't "officially recorded" yet, or even looked at. BUT as of when I went to bed last night - every single contestant (who didn't have a bye) was "on the board" with votes and there was enough outstanding votes that I was waiting to get to completely change the trends and flip the results on their head. No one is "safe" right now. (Well, there are a couple people who I *think* the trends are favoring to be safe, but again, there are enough votes that I am waiting to get, and probably will in the last hour, if I know you guys and how you like to make me sweat, to completely change that!

So if you are a contestant, make sure to get your "Contestant Only" vote into me at clauderainsrm@gmail.com and everyone else needs to be voting in the poll http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1005827.html to keep your favorites in the game! I have a feeling today is going to hurt a lot. It would regardless. But I just have a feeling about it...


Since this is the last day of (some of) your Idol Season 10 lives - how are you spending it? In quiet contemplation? Are you going out to cross some things off your bucket list? Having a party?

Me? I'm spending the afternoon sharpening some blades. No reason. What's your neck size again... just curious... It must have come up at that March for Science or something, that knowing people's neck size was important...just thought I'd ask...

First?? Just got done with an episode of Class, the new Dr Who spinoff series. It's really good! After I take a shower I'm going to finish reading and voting. Lots of good stuff this week!

I voted in both polls a while ago already so now I'm just quietly hoping I'm not eliminated this round because I feel like I've been trending on the low side for a while...

But I'm planning to go to a science centre with my husband and kids today so at least that'll distract me from checking the poll. Also I need to coax my autistic son into getting a genetic blood test, as was requested as part of his diagnosis. I'm not sure how I'm going to get him to do that.

Have fun at the science centre! How old is your son? Perhaps he might be okay with getting blood drawn if he knows it's for SCIENCE! :)

He's 6, but I don't think that will work. He works better with rewards, but part of his autism is that he's super sensitive to pain, and gets anxiety whenever there's a fear of pain. That's what I'm up against.

Thanks for relieving any tension I was feeling about today's vote Gary! (frsht, mmrph)

One of the things I need to do today is buy a bucket, amusingly. Also, roast a spaghetti squash and write some birthday cards.

I know very few folks follow running as a sport, but there's a new women's marathon world record as of today, set by Mary Keitany in London. That makes today super cool, whatever else happens.

I just finished voting in both polls. I am sorry there wasn't enough time to comment as much as I would like. Sigh. I need longer days (or to quit my job!) Guess which would be favorable? haha.
Off to a concert in Albany, NY at The Egg (yes it's shaped like an egg) to see an acapella group called Home Free. It should be a fun evening!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

I saw Home free at Christmas and they were great. This is a much better venue and the acoustics are so perfect so it should be a great show. We'll go to a great diner before that. There is pie!

I also don't work (though I do have kids, which are time consuming), and it took me 3 days to go through them.

I love good acapella music! Enjoy your concert!
Apr. 23rd, 2017 05:34 pm (UTC)
Good friends, good food and good music=lots of fun! Hope all is well with you!

Arcades and dinner and now school prep for the morning my life is a whirligig of fun

I taught Sunday school this morning, just finished voting in the polls, and I'm hoping my husband gets off his butt from playing video games so we can do errands or otherwise I'm going to go nap!!!

What am I doing today? Reading! And I am terrified after reading, here, that it has taken some days to get through the entries. And I am terrified because my neck is relatively small. Sigh.

Spent most of today battling cramps and trying to put my home together after the Great Exterminator Visit of 2017. Dreading going back to work tomorrow. Trying to decide if I want to dye my hair tonight while the spousebeast is at work, or just hide under the covers until the vote is over.

Do the hair! I got some blue and purple streaks a few weeks ago and they make me soooooo happy when I glimpse them.

What a weekend! Getting measured for the noose in Idol is capping off a great camping trip where we tried out a new bigger family tent, and it weathered a thunderstorm pretty handily on it's second night out, so that was good. Even better, the new chair we got for Rog to sleep in worked great for him, so tent camping will work comfortably for all of us this summer, which is good stuff. But I still have two hours more to drive home while waiting to see how the noose fits.
