Dear LJ

A few words from clauderainsrm about voting:

I love our canine friends. I love our feline friends. LJ Idol loves them too.

The fact that they can come together, here, in our forum in full agreement – wow that’s just amazing.

Dogs and cats working together for a common purpose. It gives me hope for our future.

However. They really shouldn’t be voting. Unless of course they really have been reading the entries and just happened to all come to the same conclusion… and somehow, I doubt that. I’m dumb, but not quite that naïve. Nor are we that unobservant to miss this kind of thing.*g*

Yes, I do realize that my statement comes off as highly discriminatory and that I’m sure there will be a lawsuit by PETA at any time now for violating the civil liberties of our four legged friends.

But the only animal who is allowed to vote is dragonfluff and come on, she’s a dragon! How can she NOT be allowed to vote!*G* DRAGON. Who wants to be the one to tell her "oh no you can’t vote!" Seriously. . .*g*

Every once in awhile we get a vote here and there that we have to toss, but it usually doesn’t make a difference so there isn’t anything to be gained by bothering to mention it. This time it will, and if I thought for a moment that the person receiving these votes was “in on it” they would be booted in a second. I think this is just people a little overeager to help someone they like. But if they come out like this again, they are going to cost their contestant of choice more than a few thrown out votes. Ok? Ok.

We now resume our regularly scheduled wait for the Green Room/New Topic to be posted, already in progress. . .

Eliminations/Special Powers Week 13

After a week of all sorts of surprises, ups/downs and where animals came out to support their favorite person of all time we have some results for you.

Sad ones of course, because that's how the first part of this goes. The second half are the people with power, and people with power always end up being someone's best new buddy.

The people being eliminated this week are:

The first person who ever offered to be my new "internet girlfriend" and fellow Milkman Stomper dedamona

dubheach
js_africanus
kittytech
and just to eliminate him again, worldofcharlie!!

Congratulations to all of you for making it this far. You really did do yourself proud and I hope that we will be seeing more of you in the weeks to come.

Now it's time for the "special powers". I'm happy to say that when all was said and done, our furry friends did not actually end up skewing the results. They came *close*, but no bone.

The top vote getter was porcelain72. She has earned the right to NAME THE NEXT TOPIC. Yes, it will be a second topic for this week, and the sooner she emails it to me at clauderains@rocketmail.com the sooner I will name it as an official option for the week on the Topic Post.

The lowest awallens, controlld_chaos and unsold_capacity are tied. (there were two more but they had more Gold Stars and thus weren't considered as "lowest" for sake of a tie.) Which means ALL THREE OF THEM have the power to declare a ONE ON ONE CAGE MATCH with someone for this week. Let me know what you decide to do.

Topics Week 14

Let’s see, the 2nd week in February and we have a topic. . . what will it be? What will it be?

Hmmm. . . if only we had a guide to go by, perhaps a past season. . . if only . . .

That’s right – just in time for Valentines Day, our topic is “The One I Love”.

You probably love SOMEONE or something. Or you did at one point in your life. Or maybe you want to sometime in the future. Or you just want to rant about how that REM song isn’t at all about what people think it is… I’m sure you’ll come up with something.

Alternate Topic, chosen by porcelain72 Love Stinks

You can choose one or the other to write on this week.

The deadline to link your entry back here is Friday Feb 15th at 1PM EST.
