Green Room - Week 0 - Weekend Edition

Happy Cynthia's birthday to everyone who celebrates it!

It is, of course, an internationally recognized holiday at Idol!

How have you been celebrating?


I hope that you are getting your Week 0 entries in, for those who want to take part in the non-mandatory "practice round". Which, considering that you are here to write, I'd imagine that most of you would want to get in on this! https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1062306.html

The deadline for that is the same deadline for signing up: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1060711.html so if there are still folks out there on the fence about jumping in, there is still time!

Maybe we should make a list of Idol acronyms and phrases for the newbies?

I've got a really bad intro draft. We've spent the bulk of the day cleaning up the disaster that's out front yard. Benign neglect will cause that.

What are the idol acronyms?
Sep. 16th, 2019 12:24 am (UTC)
Check the FAQ. Kate has a list of Idol terms that I linked.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if there was one floating around. I wasn't even thinking of it until emo snal replied.

Still pondering my week 0 entry, but I plan to work on it tonight. Today was some light housework and laundry, nothing too hard. Also watching Big Bang Theory again, as it’s a household favorite, lol!

I got my Week 0 entry done today instead of cleaning out the worm bin like I should have done two weeks ago. Ah, procrastination.
Sep. 15th, 2019 10:27 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the reminder! *clean out worm bin!

LOL! ;)

I can certainly understand writing your intro rather than cleaning out your worm bin. What is a worm bin? It sounds wriggly.

Not to mention wiggly!

It's indoor composting. I have a bin in my bathroom filled with shredded paper and worms that I dump my fruit & veg scraps, used coffee grounds, and tea bags in. Every three months I have to clean out the old stuff and put the worms in new paper. Every three months I put it off as long as I can because it's about three hours to clean the whole thing by hand.

Indoor composting sounds wonderful, except for the worm part, although I bet the worms love it. Lots of food, warm, safe -- hard to beat that! Some days, especially when I'm writing for Idol, it feels like my brain has composted.

Happy birthday Cynthia!

My week O entry is done, I wrote it the first day. I couldn’t spend a lot of time on it since I’m finishing one book, outlining the next and also trying to spend time with my boyfriend while I’m here with him. I have a feeling most of my entries will be turned in late because I’ll have to think about them, but I could just wing it for the introduction. I think I know myself fairly well.

One of the busiest weeks I've had in a long time. I WANT to write an intro, we shall see....how the hours unfold.

Sep. 15th, 2019 10:34 pm (UTC)
Hey there folks! I am in the market for a second opinion before I post my week 0 entry. I would be grateful for a volunteer!
Sep. 15th, 2019 10:53 pm (UTC)

I'd be happy to look at it, but you'll have to tell me what I'm looking for. :)

I have my entry written but I calculate it to presently be Sunday in the States, and for reasons astrophysicists have yet to quite entirely explain posting anything on an American Sunday is tantamount to flushing it down the toilet and no one will ever see it or at least comment on it. So waiting for tonight when a spacetime window will open to the American Monday morning.

We have our own private black hole for posting entries that is in effect only on Sundays. It's one of those weird quantum physics things that no one fully understands and no one can explain.

"Intro" (if you want to call it that) posted. Clothes Kondo'd (at least the summer ones). Client memoir edit in progress, inquiry received for something to start Oct 1, and project booked to start Oct 15. Autumn is looking busy!

An enormous amount of ice cream eaten and coffee drunk (not at the same time). Also one Bojangles bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit. Does that count as celebrating Cynthia's b'day?

Happy Cynthia Birthday Day to ALL!! But especially to Cynthia. :)

I'm celebrating by playing the heck out of Stardew Valley, which is my new favorite obsession. So fun!

Happy Birthday, Cynthia! We are enjoying having Son home one last week. He was here all summer, but now we have to take him back to college.

Happy birthday, Cynthia!

Today I celebrated by having several enchanting squirrel encounters, and seeing the sunshine. Such a lovely day.
