Green Room - Week 13 - Day 7

I learned something important this weekend - apparently being gay is a "choice that people make".

Yes, that was part of the response to the email I sent. (see GR from a few days ago for details). The gist of it was that there had been a misunderstanding and that *of course* my sister and her wife were invited to come to the house whenever they wanted. It then though went on to say - as these things do - about being how being gay is a choice.

Being a straight man, I of course remember that day - so long ago - when I had to contemplate "Will I be gay?"

(In truth, had I been - my post-high school life would be *a lot* more active! There were a lot more guys hitting me on me than women! In retrospect, I may have made the wrong "decision"!)

The good thing though is being told that all the kids are still very much loved *regardless of what they decide*. Even though being gay is, of course, defying "how God wants you to be".

So, Happy Pi Day - Happy First Day of Daylight Savings Time - and Happy Last Day of the Poll for Week 13! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/907438.html

and Happy "Deciding on if you are going to be gay or not" Day! Hope you all decide "the right way"! :D

Results - Week 13

The difference between staying and going this week, for one of the teams was an average of .4 of a vote.

It was another brutal week as we head closer to the end of the Teams. From who is left, it's pretty much guaranteed to all be brutal weeks from here on out.

This week we are losing some old friends and some talented newbies we met for the first time a few months ago:

Team #Hack heinleinfan
Team Strawberry Snuggle oxymoron67


Rivals - aresrising05 and swirlsofblue

Thank you so much for coming out for this mini-season. I hope that we will continue to see your work in the Home Game! (and you in general!)
