Green Room - Week 1 - Day 7

I went to a show this weekend and actually got to see "That Guy" in action.

I'll admit that I've never observed Him in his natural habitat before. I thought that I had. But those were all smaller versions.  I'd always just chalked it up to maybe He didn't come to the same shows I was at...

Who am I talking about?

He was extremely drunk, and was going up behind women and grabbing at them "accidentally". I actually saw him get into position to do that.  Fortunately, the woman in question also seemed to recognize him for what he was and moved out of his grasp before he could make his move.

As soon as she was gone - he moved to another nearby woman.... who ignored him when he tried to make contact, and he wasn't in position to do anything "subtle" so he moved on....

The only time he got close enough to where I was standing was actually him stepping on my foot.... and then turning around like he was going to punch me,  (He wasn't a tall guy, but he definitely worked out)

I think he realized that he was the one with the foot in the wrong place, and moved on...

I lost track of him in the crowd after that - until the very end when I saw him actually dancing with a woman. Maybe they are right that there is always *someone* out there who will think your shit is charming.

Or maybe she was just drunk enough to not care about him....

Hell, maybe they knew each other!

I don't know.  But they both seemed to be having a good time, and she had several friends with her. So hopefully things worked out well for everyone involved.

Also at the same show was the very drunk and horny couple who were pawing at each other up against the stage.  Eventually she left - and then he left... a little later the drunk woman came back and kept trying to make out with some random woman who was there with her boyfriend.  (she kept turning her head every time the drunk woman came in for a kiss)

tl;dr   - People are messed up, aka "Don't be That Guy/That Woman"

What you *can't* avoid is that tonight is the deadline: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/867839.html  So you had better be ready for it!

Vote - Week 1 - Teams

A few words from clauderainsrm:

Welcome to Week 1 of LJ Idol: Friends and Rivals!

As you may know - this mini-season is a little bit different in that there are options to “play as teams” as well as playing as individuals.

LJ, being LJ, decided that (for space), that I needed to separate the polls. So I am cutting this message and pasting it in both posts. :)

Make sure you go over and check out the other one though - because what you are seeing here is only half of the goodness that awaits!

No real spiel this time around - other than to say that with the Teams, the scores of each group will be averaged and the team with the lowest score will be losing the member with the fewest votes.

For the individuals, it’s just the person with the entry receiving the fewest votes.

(Translation: We will be losing two contestants this week)

So make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites! It’s the only way you can guarantee that you will get to see more of them in the weeks to come!

The poll will be closing Thursday, December 10th at 10pm EST

Good luck to everyone!

NOTE: The last team should be "Team: The Geek Squad". This will be corrected for next week's poll. My apologies.
