Green Room - Week 22 - Day 5

The poll is up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1027086.html

and so are the results of the Spirit of LJ Idol! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1026817.html

rayaso was given choices for his prize, they were:

1. 2 byes that can be given away or kept, that are usable between now and the Top 10.

2. Immunity for yourself Good until the Top 10

3. Immunity for someone else. Good until the Top 10

4. Topsy Turvy (send the person with the most votes home) - good until the Top 10

5. Bring 2 contestants back into the game, effective Week 23.

He selected the two byes!! I suspect he's about to get really popular!

Well, even more popular...


How was your weekend?

Anyone else catch up on Doctor who?

I also watched the Fear the Walking Dead from 2 weeks ago, and granted, I'm two weeks behind - but that one episode gave me more hope for the show than the entire first 2 seasons and definitely more than the first few of this one... I had actually given up on it, but heard the buzz on the following episode and decided to see for myself.

I haven't watched the latest episode of Doctor Who yet. It's got one more chance to keep me before I delete it forever from my DVR. I love Peter Capaldi, but I'm getting real sick of the writers beating us over the head with the Message of the Week. I'm even more sick of the weeks they don't have a message and decide to beat us over the head with Bill's lesbianism. Yes, I know she likes girls. I don't care. Move. The story. Along.

Well, you only have a couple episodes to go before Capaldi and the Moffatt are gone.

There was no mention of *Bill's* sexuality in this week's episode...

and there was definitely a huge movement forward in the story arc.

Once again, thank you all for the Spirit of Idol. I was very surprised and it means a lot to me.

Well deserved.

Hi! I'm tired! I spent the weekend at Wilco's Solid Sound Festival. Way too much fun! Lots of music, art and food! What more does one need? Hope all are well!

One of the rare times I'm jealous of you!!

I've mostly given up on staying current with anything TV-wise. These days we're re-watching the original Twin Peaks, which I hadn't seen since it first aired. It's been fascinating to see how different some of my reactions to characters are now vs. then.
Jun. 26th, 2017 04:40 pm (UTC)
I'm doing that, too. I need to refresh my memory so I can watch the new episodes.

Aside from all the Idol fun last night, I watched the season finale of The Handmaid's Tale. Absolutely excellent!

Sunday night is my big TV night. Over three hours of KSPS, and THT, and Madam Secretary. It's going to be even worse on the sixteenth when Game of Thrones new season begins.

Of course the greatest excitement was therealljidol! Isn't it always?!

I think next week's Who is the season finale and Capaldi's final episode. If it's anything like the last half of this week's episode I'm going to be a weepy mess, especially since I now consider him "my" Doctor :(

I haven't watched Fear The Walking Dead since its first season. I haven't watched TWD for maybe two seasons now, maybe three? I'm all zombied out.

We were in Cabo for a week and got back Saturday night so my TV has piled up. I did get caught up on the Bachelorette and watched all the cast reveal interviews for Big Brother. Priorities, you guys — I have them :)

Also, can I just say how glad I am that rayaso didn't pick No. 4? Not that I think I'd ever have the most votes, but YIKES for whoever does!!

Cabo sounds fun!

I don't know if topsy-turvy has been used while I've been playing, but I remember watching it happen in the season I observed before I jumped in. It's evil and political and fascinating to watch the fall out from, but I wouldn't ever want to use it.

My weekend was busy. I spent Friday and Saturday as a passenger in my sister's car as we completed our cross-country road trip. It was fun, but I'm glad to be home.

Saturday night after we got home, we went to a family friend's and hung out in her pool. Sunday was grocery shopping, laundry, and work. And now that it's Monday, I work 8am-9pm.

I need a nap. :)

I spent virtually the entire weekend writing, madly writing.

That was exactly the reason I first tried the other prompt, because I knew how much work the first one would be! But the second one didn't really want to do much, and the first one... well, at least I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Despite the work!

Just hope voters are, too. :O
Jun. 26th, 2017 06:14 pm (UTC)
Your entry absolutely positively reflects the amount of work you put in! Brava!

Of course that was the reward he picked. Welcome to the nicer kinder gentler Idol! ;)

I have such a gag reflex when it comes to The Walking Dead now...I can't imagine returning or trying the spin off.

My weekend...was long.

But for TV? Better Call Saul. Fargo. (Be still my Wrench-loving heart!) American Gods. And a rewatch of The Vampire Diaries.

And in a desperate attempt to go all oldskool on LJ, I posted a multi-fandom comment-fic meme for THREESOMES. If you're so inclined, you can join in here -

When I finished the last season of The Walking Dead, which was tough, I was utterly infuriated that they hadn't closed off the storyline I hate so much. Because I want to be done with that!

We finished Better Call Saul S2, since it's on a channel we don't get and have to wait for Netflix. THAT ending was a little consternating, too. Must I want to kill Chuck at the end of every season?

We're watching Homeland right now, near the end of S5 I think, and started "Hinterland" on Netflix-- mainly because it's a British detective show (a good genre, overall), and it's set in Wales. Subtitles are on to help decipher some of the accents, and some of the work on those is crap. How can you misspell a common Welsh name like Caradog, especially after it has been shown in print? And keep misspelling it?

I haven't watched Doctor Who recently, but I've been watching The Expanse.

I am still recovering from surgery last week.
Jun. 27th, 2017 12:10 am (UTC)
I wish you a happy and speedy recovery, with a side of ice cream or some other treat. Take care of yourself.

Sunny and beautiful in Ohio all weekend. T'was a rare thing indeed. Bought a new bike and went to the Dayton Air Show.
Jun. 27th, 2017 04:59 am (UTC)
This weekend was beach, boobs, bad bbq.

Also watched a live wrestling show from Austin, Texas free on Twitch.

Then Sunday caught up on a lot of shows I'd missed binging.
