Green Room - Week 6 - Day 7

What I knew about Avril Lavigne before yesterday - that she existed.

What I know now, that she's offensively racist and full of cultural appropriation, and put out a horrible song.

Except of course there also seems to be some backlash outrage movement from the within the Asian community who think that white people need to STFU and stop telling them what they should find offensive.

In other words, a typical day on the internet.

What makes up YOUR typical day on the internet? Other than the vast amounts of time spent at Idol. Because those are totally worth it, and enrich your life. What random rabbit holes do you find yourself getting sucked into?

How does that impact your writing? Do you feel like you are learning things you can incorporate or ultimately just killing some time?

Btw - Grumpy Cat is here today! *takes a selfie with Grumpy Cat* Everyone say hi!

The poll is up until tonight http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/730957.html and the Killing Floor is now up for your constructive criticism: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/731821.html

With the vote coming to a close, who knocked your socks off, but still needs more love to survive

Results - Week 6

This week has featured some extremely close battles and a surprise sacrifice that slipped through the cracks.

I'll deal with the sacrifice first. In Tribe 1, i_will_not_say needs to bow out due to Real Life. Looking at the poll results, you would have thought it would be a much longer run. Unfortunately, that "real life" thing doesn't consult the polls.

In Tribe 2, we actually have a tie between reborn_spirit and sestinaqueen, who will be the newest members of the Redemption Tribe!

From Redemption, by A SINGLE VOTE, we are losing seratonation
In Tribe 3, we are losing crazed_delusion

Thank you so much for coming out, and I hope that we will continue to see you in the Home Game (and you will jump in when the door opens for a second chance to play later in the season!)

Topic - Week 7

There are some topics that make you think, or go down memory lane.

There are some that lead you places where you laugh, and others will make you cry.

There are some that make you scratch your head going "WTF?"

Fortunately, this week it's none of those. Because I would never give you any of those kinds of topics.

No True Scotsman


ever would.

Nor would he tell you that the deadline to link your entries back here is Monday, April 28th at 8 pm EDT. So I guess I will have to do that as well! ;)

Have fun!
