Green Room - Week 5 - Day 4

Don't let your friend borrow your car. For any reason. Unless you really like spending time in jail for murder: http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/lending-friend-your-car-can-get-you-life-sentence

Of course, given that this is Idol, there are probably a few people here already spending time for murder! (or only NOT serving time because they haven't had the opportunity to commit it yet)

Speaking of doing time for murder, the deadline for Week 5 entries is tonight, and there are still quite a few people who haven't posted yet. If you know one of those people, start beating them upside the head until they post: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/726388.html
(after they have posted, beat them upside the head just for fun!)

I'm hoping for a smaller "bye-out" this week, but I'd predicted earlier in the competition that Weeks 4-8 would be bad, calming back down by Week 10. So, we are in the thick of where I thought "the action" was going to be happening. I'm seeing a lot of byes happening though, so people are putting themselves in the situation where one bad/busy week is going to put them on the chopping block! Playing that close to the edge, where we could literally lose just about anyone, I've got to admit, it's kind of exciting, but I'm hoping that we don't lose *too* many people that way!


Once you have your entries out of the way, go check out what other people have done: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/727151.html in the Killing Floor, and offer them your constructive criticism!

Well that and talking about the Game of Thrones episode. I'm sure some of you will be doing that as well! :)

Vote - Week 5

A few words from clauderainsrm:

It’s Week 5 of the greatest mousetrap ever created!

Which does mean that there were several people who had stuck their heads in and had the metal snap down on them. The are two variations on this theme, the people who let me know that they had to drop: gisellewakefld, maerhys and thealogicallady

and those who used their last bye, and missed another deadline. allie63
cacophonesque, isle_of_apples, lealila, livsnjutare, paws2see, pen_name and selcazare

Some truly awesome people in both batches.

Thank you for coming out. Hope to see you in the Home Game!

As for the rest of you - we will be losing the person with the fewest votes in each of the tribes (as usual) So make sure to get out there and support the people you want to see continue! Tell folks about what is going on here! Anyone who comes to read will end up thanking you for it!

The poll closes Thursday, April 17th at 10pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!
