I have some running around to do today so I took the day off from work. (Translation: I just woke up!)

I did some last minute Tribe shifts based on last week's performance. (Translation: If you did really well last week you have most likely been "moved up a weight class".)

When I was messing with the polls and muttering to myself about suesniffsglue I noticed that the plan to not introduce byes in the first two rounds has actually made sure we got out of the box faster as far as eliminations go. (Translation: Congratulations Top 175!)

Notice what I said in that last section? "In the first two rounds". Yes, I am admitting that the "bye week" is coming back as of Week 3!! Not sure what that is? Ask and I'm sure someone will tell you, or stick around and I'll be explaining it a little later! (Translation: You won't have to write something *every* week for 6 months. . .)

Have you been reading the entries this week? Wow. Just wow. There have been some really good ones, some that have made people upset, some that have revealed a lot about the writer and often the reader, some that have outright challenged and some that were excuses to show off cute bacteria.*g* But in the end the ones that I have gotten to have had the same reaction - they have made people stop, think or react. Heh, sometimes they might have missed a step.*g* But there has some really good conversation. (Translation: Read the entries!!!!)

If you haven't got your entry in yet - make sure you post your entry link at http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/180492.html before tomorrow at noon EST (Translation: Get a move on buster!!!!)

Hope you guys have a good day. (Translation: Have a good day)

Happy Birthday/Unbirthday to rose_idol (Translation: I wish I had known it was your birthday earlier when I wrote the post, but I'll put it up here anyway)

It won't be long... there are LOTS of chances to come.

[There have already been 17 GR firsts this season, if that helps]

Happy early afternoon...or morning I guess it sort of still is.

I was kind of wondering about the byes.

Hope everyone is doing well.

I can't believe it's Thursday already.

Hmm...confuzzled as to the "bye weeks" of which you speak...

Loving the entries this week though!

A "bye" (last year we had two apiece) is when you take the option to NOT write an entry, and instead just post in the Topic thread that you will be taking a "bye" (aka, a pass) this week. You only (last year, at least) got TWO byes for the season, so you DON'T want to waste them!

Yay! I'd been waiting for today's GR post so I could link my home game entry.

Happy Thursday everyone!

Yay, Home Game players!

How long before we get our own thread, O' Powers That Be? I posted my entry early in the week and I doubt anyone goes back to previous-day GRs, so I figure nobody else will see it unless I make myself obnoxious, which I don't want to do...

I'm not sure about the "bye weeks", either, but I can wait for the explanation later on!

and Good Morning! :D

Thank you for all those wonderful translations. Translation: You did some translations, they were wonderful, for that I thank you. I feel like crap this morning. Translation: it's morning, and I feel like crap during it, this particular time.

If the subsequent weeks' topics prove as good as the first two weeks', we'll have a great competition. Translation: Keep up the stellar work, Gary.

I just want to go home and sleep for the rest of the day. Translation: I'll be slaving away here all day.

Good thing the GR isn't voice chat cuz I couldn't. The plague I seem to have now has taken my voice away! Ugh! I sort of sound like Mickey Mouse.

I had every intention on going to work but I felt so lousy that I gave up the thought.

So I'll be in and out of here today between naps.

Ah...HERE's the Green Room post. I was starting to panic a little.

I have a horrible headache. It's actually more of a face and skull ache. I'm sitting at my desk with a heatpack applied to my face. My coworkers sympathize and then giggle. :P

But I'm still reading! I'm completely (need to be) committed. :D

Ow, I've had those kinds of headaches. I sure hope the co-workers are giggling because you look funny with something slapped over your face, not because it hurts. Those kinds of headaches just aren't funny at all.

I'd issue you one commitment to the looney bin, but I've been told that inmates can't do that; the rubber stamps used to make them are too dangerous.

Sure, NOW you post the GR... when I'm distracted by actual WORK! (Translation: Damn it!)

I've only gotten about a dozen entries read, but so far they've all been pretty darn good... like you really care what I think!

Whoa, I'm actually making an appearance in here at a decent hour :D

Well, it's decent for me. A cold front went through yesterday and now we have beautiful crisp cool (well, cool for northeast Florida) weather. All the windows are open and once the front actually got here, the pain levels went back where they belong.

I'm hoping since I slept long enough (just got up, I'm a slug) that there will be no unexpected nap attacks and I can read entries. I also have a million other things to do; my muse is busy, busy, busy and that means I have to follow suit.

Here, have some mulled cider and turkey chili; they're both good for lunch on a cool, crisp day like this one.

Hope everyone else is having fun and doing well!

My muse is being persistent. Lord and Lady it's been *forever!* since he's been like this! It's actually nice to see. :)
