"Seriously, I won't. It's not like I'm going to get distracted by a worldwide pandemic or anything"
If you've been involved in LJ Idol for any length of time, you know just how long a week is, and how difficult it can be to survive one at times.
Hitting that 100 mark is a big deal.
Two people hitting the 100 mark is an even bigger deal, and of course them hitting that mark several weeks back, well, that's just an honest mistake that I overlooked it. But I was calculating how close several contestants were to the 200 mark, and the Luna, and noticed, there were two contestants marked in red - which is what I do to draw my attention to their numbers. I thought they had a good chance of crossing that 100 week threshold. Sure enough, they did, with 111 and 107 weeks under their belts.
Both have undergone quite a bit since they first showed up - I know at least one of them probably wouldn't recognize themselves if I introduced the them now to old version. :)
I'm just really happy, and proud, to be able to say that Idol was a part of their journey.
Congratulations to karmasoup and mac_arthur_park! And welcome to the 100 Weeks club!
