Green Room - Week 26 - Day 7

I believe in same sex voting in the polls:

I also believe in the right to vote for someone of a different sex in the polls.

Whoever it is that you love, you have the equal right to cast a vote for them! Which is how it should be!

I didn’t even have to “evolve” this position, it’s one that I have kept from the very beginning!

So, get out there and take advantage of it!

While you are getting out there and doing stuff, there is still a vote going on to determine who will be coming back into the game. Just to clarify (I did last night, but I’ll do it again) it’s someone who left between Week 21 and this week! Which does limit it, but also makes it more of a challenge! : )

Some games may no longer be afoot, but this one definitely is!!

Results - Week 26

*takes a huge breath and sits down* That was a bit of a ride this week!

Then again, when isn't it?

With a talented group like this, it was only a matter of which bounce was going to be the last to determine who was going to be leaving and who was staying.

Before I get into that though, I have some good news. People following the_day_setup already know this, but for those who don't - he made the decision to use the "Back in the Game" token.

So - welcome back xo_kizzy_xo! Congratulations for being chosen!

Unfortunately, as we gain one, we lose two people who have definitely made an impression on this season. One newbie. One veteran.

Two distinct voices and personalities, who will very much be missed.

Goodbye to


Thank you to both of you. I hope we will continue to see you in the Home Game and around here in general.

Topic - Week 27

On the best of days, your Idol experience can be like a living nightmare...

Oh wait, that's the best of days FOR ME!

For you though, maybe it's something out of a dream, or a storybook...

Which is why the topic is

Once Upon a Time

The deadline to link your entries back here is Monday, May 14th, at 9pm EDT

Have fun!

Work Room - Week 27

Once upon a time, there was an evil and twisted man who ruled over the vast kingdom of Idol. One day he summoned the best and the brightest to gather together and spend a good chunk of a year of their lives to battle each other to the death for his amusement.

Which, they did until there was only one left, and he got rid of that person forever and after resting a couple months, summoned more to take up the ranks and continue the battle once more!

The evil and twisted man lived happily ever after.

Your entry could be a happy story, like that one. The topic could certainly steer you in that direction -

But isn't that a little obvious? Who isn't going to go for the fairy tale?

Who isn't going to go for the metaphor of their life as a storybook?

When something screams at you to go one direction - when something zigzags at you, how are you going to resist making a rolling papers reference?
