Results - Week 20

Livejournal is a harsh mistress, and not in the way that people are willing to pay a little extra to receive.

In a series of ups and downs through the last week, it is has been rough going just to keep our heads above water and keep track of what is going on.

It's one of the problems with a site like this, sometimes it doesn't work as well as we would like. Sometimes we spend more time hammering our heads against wall than we can spend actually reading and enjoying ourselves.

Which is a shame.

Sometimes you play the course and sometimes you get played by it.

Thank you to everyone who braved the waters and kept trying until they got their votes in, and let their voice be heard over the chaos.

The second tribe was created to try to avoid automatically eliminating anyone caught in LJ's trap. It made things a lot more difficult, but hopefully it helped a little.

However, LJ did seem to aim at one particular household.
Both
diagenou
and
walkertxkitty
were eliminated from the Late Tribe.

In the first tribe, we are losing soprano1790.

At this point any elimination is going to be brutal. Seeing those names just reminds us of that.

There is a tie-breaker among the other folks currently tied for that second spot.
The contestants who will be battling it out?
