Green Room - Week 3 - Day 5

Good morning Greenies!

Horrible confession time when I first saw the word I went "what???really???" but it's kind of grown on me as a term for people addicted to the Green Room.

So I'm going to use it for now until something better comes along.

***

I wasn't feeling very well this morning and so I'm actually at home today. Will this mean that I will stay up and catch up on my reading and various internet activities or fall asleep for the rest of the morning? Heh. . .um. . .*g*

***

In the last half of the Green Room yesterday I asked a question. I figured I would ask it again today just in case people didn't see it.

Last season I gave out "Gold Stars" to contestants who just plain did something in a given week to "make my day". I have it on the short list of "things to do" for this season but for one reason or another it just hasn't made it in thus far.

That said - if YOU had the power to hand them out, who would be getting Gold Stars so far for making YOUR day and why?

***

Remember to make everyone's day and post the link to your entry: http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/183784.html - I've got to admit there are a lot more people taking "byes" this week than I thought was going to be the case. Either this week is taking a lot out of people, the topic is just difficult for one reason or another for them at this time and people really really enjoy playing without a net for the next few months!!!

***

How is your net today? Looking secure? A bit frayed around the edges? Structurally unsound with big holes ripped in it? Or just plain "What net???"

Oh geez. I was hoping the "Greenie" thing wasn't going to stick.

Net?

Here's an image for the bye folks:

cat
more animals

ETA: I hope you feel better. Get some rest. Have some soup!

*yawns* TGIF because I don't think I could make it a day longer... not that I catch a break this weekend, with a convention to go to and a wedding reception, but hey, at least it won't be work.

Good Morning.

I have to find my net to add to the sea-faring Halloween display I do every year. I do have some really cool skeletons to add this year.

Now I have to get materials to make tombstones to replace the ones that were broken last year.

I recommend finding a better term since "Greenies" is slang for boogers. How about "Idol minds" since we're all idle in the "green room?" Or maybe "Idolites?"

No list of shame? I almost won that every-other-week bet, but I just posted.

It *has* been a hard week. I managed to find something, though.

List 'O Shame will go up sometime before the deadline. But yay for not making it!

I'm going to have the same issue when I return to work. Last year I was really cognizant of getting my entries in ASAP because I didn't want to be on The List. It felt like I was hanging off a cliff for dear life in a couple of instances :shudder:

G'morning! My net is doing well... not always as fast as I would like... oh, wait, you didn't mean my internetz? :)

I'm having a cuppa tea, making some yummy matzo brei (yes, I eat it often around this time of the year) and will be putting "real" clothes on (I'm still in my jammies) at some point within the next 15-20 minutes. Whee!

Oh so glad it's Friday!

I got strobed last night. That is, the inadvertent strobing effect of a ceiling fan mounted below a fluorescent light triggered my seizure disorder. After the twitchin' and floppin' got done, I scraped myself off the classroom floor, sat up, and rambled on about comma splices, sentence fragments, and unreliable narrators anyway. And, even though what I'd rather do now is sleep, I'm going in to give individual conferences anyway.

Because the show must go on, that's why, and my next-door officemate at the state university (this happened at the small art college where I also teach) has a brain tumor, for which he's already had chemo and radiotherapy, and if he can come in every damn day, I can come in every damn day.

'Sides, I have a friend coming over, and he'll pat my little head and make it all better.

Awww! *Huggles* **Pats head**

I had a friend in college with a seizure disorder - she hated Christmas because of all the friggin' blinking lights on the houses and whatnot.

Bloody TGIF

A week from tonight -- Claudia flies out to Manila and for three weeks I'll be bored stiff.

I suppose I'll get things done around the house abouts...

Bored stiff, eh? I'll have to see what I can do about that.

GREENIES - looks like I need a new icon
Good morning, my fellow Greenies!

[Do we have Veteran Greenies and Newbie Greenies? Cause that makes me giggle...]

I slept last night. While that might not seem unusual to most people (after all, don't most people sleep during their diurnal cycle?) according to my mood chart I slept as much last night as I have since Saturday.

I was getting just a little... well, some of you can relate, I am sure. I posted public an analogy if you want to read it. So, frayed was right, but I feel like a new woman today. I wonder what I should name her. *tips hat*

Re: GREENIES - looks like I need a new icon
Maybe Greenie Newbies?

Greenie Vets?

Green Berets?

The "Greenie" thing is making me giggle because all I can think of are those dog treats.

Good morning GR!

I'm waiting for my manager to call so we can hammer out exactly when I'm working next week.

I also woke up with a cold. Since half my FL also have colds...hmmm...

Good morning GR. Glad to hear most of you are doing well! It's Friday, so that's always a plus!

My wife took today off, because last week was our first anniversary but we were fostering 5 Lab puppies, so it wasn't much of a celebration. The puppies have been adopted, and the house no longer smells like, well, bad.

I was going to wait until today to write up this week's topic, but realized that I'm probably only going to be online for a half hour, at most. So, got it done yesterday. Yay, no list of shame for me!

How did you folks feel about the topic? I knew what I was going to write about as soon as I read it. For some, apparently, it was a stumper.

Oct. 10th, 2008 12:45 pm (UTC)
I loved the topic (but I have loved them all so far, so I don't think I count).

Of course, mine sort of wrote itself, so I am not sure that counts.
