Green Room - Week 17 - Day 1

Last night featured eliminations and the announcement of the Sudden Death Write-Off:

The new Topic(s) and announcement of the first ever Blind Box!

and a Work Room:

Make sure to get your email in to me. The sooner you do, the sooner you can get your topic!

So far we have 36/46 who have their topics and should be able to start working.

There are definitely some combinations of topic and contestant that have me excited because I *think* I know where they are going to go, and it's going to be really good. And of course some where I went "Well, it will be interesting..." :)


The litany against fear mentions in yesterday's Green Room reminded me that in high school I was really into the Dune books. Well, Frank Herbert in general, but I definitely loved them. I could have, at that point, recited the litany.

I *know* this is true (although I can't recall most of it these days) because I have a distinct memory of Grad Night for my high school, which was at the Magic Kingdom.

I am *terrified* of roller coasters. But there was a girl that I *really* liked (in retrospect it's pretty obvious she liked me as well - we literally ate lunch together every day and spent most of our time together. I later learned that she spent Prom Night home crying because I didn't ask her! I hadn't even considered going, much less figured out who I thought would say "yes" to be my date. But I digress). There was a girl I liked, and she wanted to ride Space Mountain. She wanted to ride it *with me*.

So I did.

I spent the entire ride with my eyes closed quietly reciting the Litany Against Fear.

It seemed to help.

Vote - Week 16 - Sudden Death Write-Off

A few words from clauderainsrm:

I’d like to think that they knew that Survivor came on tonight, and that a Write-Off was the last thing I had wanted. So both contestants turned their entries in early so that I didn’t have to wait to post.

Of course, if they were *really* caring about that, someone would have broken the tie before!

Reading both entries though, I’m glad they didn’t. This way we get to read at least one more entry from each of them. It’s a tough choice. They are both really good, and extremely different in their style. I’m glad it’s not Gary-only voting, I have no idea which way I would end up going!

That’s in YOUR hands, and you have until Thursday, May 4th at 9pm EDT to make that decision.
Read. Comment. Vote for your favorite(s) to stick around for another week!

May the 4th be with both of you!

Good luck!
