Green Room - Week 19 - Day 1

Last night was another in the series of weekly shocks: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1017342.html

If I were to make a "Top 10" list, even at this point, I'm best off just balling it up and throwing it away.

Then again, that early season "testing the waters" contestant only vote is still proving to be solid. Maybe the group made their decision back then... or perhaps it's just a matter of time before that too is thrown into the wind...

*cue dramatic music*

The new topic is up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1017582.html

and so is the Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1017639.html

I am also "up". Mostly. For some reason I woke myself out of a sound sleep at 3am this morning and didn't really get back to being completely out again after that. So if I fall asleep here at some point today, just leave me. I'll wake up eventually.

*Starts a giant pot of coffee*

I'm going to need this too for my day.

Was in a minor car accident last night - minor for me anyway. The kind where at a red light the car two cars back doesn't stop in time (it had just started raining) and hits the next car which is jolted forward and hit me. The middle car took no damage to its front, my car has some white marks and missing paint on the rear bumper but it's 20 years old so it's not anything I'm going to bother fixing.

Yeek! That happened to me once. I was the only one in the accident not at fault which is a good feeling. The accident part, not so much.

It's just not a pleasant sound ever - bumpers crunching together.

Ugh. I am so glad you are OK. And you are so right - the car crash sound makes my stomach churn!
May. 24th, 2017 01:36 am (UTC)
I'm relieved that you are okay.

I feel your pain. I woke up at 2:30, gave up on going back to sleep, and got up at 3:00. I thought I'd get to work on an entry, and managed to write and junk two really bad ideas. Now what I need is a good idea!

My inbox seems so empty the day after the deadline. Sigh

So, I went to bed around eleven last night, and woke up a few minutes ago. I also got up about three-ish, but went right back to sleep. I would gladly have slept longer as I hadn't had much sleep in about forty-eight hours, but I have a dental appointment early this afternoon.

I'm not really awake yet, so no loud noises,please. :-)

I went to bed around 11 last night, which is early for me since I didn't have to be at work this morning until 11:30.

But Mr. Fuzzy Butt, aka That Asshole, aka Max, my lovely, handsome, adorable, wonderful, perfect (*cough cough*) cat decided that 3:30 was breakfast time and proceeded to meow scream in my face while bopping my nose not-so-gently with his paw.

This is my cat being cute and snuggling a teddy bear. Don't let the innocent photo fool you. He's the freaking devil at 3:00 in the morning.

LOL! What a pretty kitteh! Looks as sweet as an angel...right?
May. 23rd, 2017 06:13 pm (UTC)
Of course he is!

Actually, when he's in a good mood, he lets me hold him like a little baby and rub his belly.

He was not in a good mood at 3:30 this morning. *sigh*

They are so loving. People say they're not, but they are. And cats can be just as tied into our emotions as any dog, it's just that their needs come first--regardless of the time. ;-)

Awwww! there's a chihuahua mix who lives here who has a stuffy toy that he carries around and snuggles with but it's almost as big as he is

silly nocturnal cats and then they are so cute and sleepy when we are expected to get up and do human things

That sounds adorable. Chihuahuas always think they're so much bigger than they really are. :D

I wonder if your angel is related to one of my kitties. Similar behavior patterns, but looks ever so cute while sleeping.

Serious questions: Have any of the season's top 10 ever been as you've predicted when the season starts? Or does each season have a fair share of curve balls?

I haven't slept well in a while either. I don't think anyone has. But in last night's case, I had the jitters after sight reading music that's being mentored by a famous composer. Said composer sat three feet away from me, and I'd never worked with the other pianist/conductor in this capacity before. I think the other pianist was nervous too.

I bring it up because like with the kid contestants that were here in Idol, the music world has quite a few up and coming composers who are fantastic. I hope that they'll become household names someday in a good way.

I've guessed a couple winners/finalist early in the season before.

And don't get me wrong, there were a few on my "possible winners" from Week 1 list that are still in the running.

But usually when I say "I had a feeling" (when they are voted out) they are the most surprised, because they never thought they'd even get as far as they did. :)
