Green Room - Week 3 - Weekend Edition Part 2

It's the last day of voting. https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1073084.html

Have you gotten your voting in yet? If not - get to it you slackers!

If you have - what entries do you think should be getting more love than they currently are receiving? (Just scanning the polls I can think of a few that personally I'm pretty shocked about)

We were in the grocery store last night, and as I wandered the aisles I played that mental game that seeps into my head now and again. "What *would I have bought*, if it was around when I was single... when I was in my 20s... when I was a teenager..." There are so many new products and brands that pop up. Maybe some of them were around and I just didn't know about them. But what if I had? Heck, I never had the "college ramen days" experience with those cheap little packs of instant ramen. It was just never on my radar as something I wanted to try, so I didn't.

Which, looking back, is pretty weird.

What, looking back, did you miss just because it just wasn't something "on your radar"?

Results - Week 3

It was another week of some great entries, followed by the ritual of sadness.

Every week looks like another nail to me, just waiting to be hammered down under the weight of eliminations.

This time though there is a genuine sadness and a disappointed but still happy kind of sadness.

Which is a weird way to start this out. But hopefully you will realize what I mean.

We are losing two contestants this week, both of them veterans.

From poll 1 we are losing daisysparrow.

From poll 2 we are losing
puppetmaker40. But wait, you say, she took a bye. How are we losing her?

Because she sacrificed.

A great writing paying opportunity opened up for her and she wanted to make sure that she would be taking the elimination spot rather than have someone else go.

Like I said, sad but also happy. (and disappointing because I love reading her entries)


I hope that both of you will, if schedule allows, play the Home Game until Second Chance opens up later this season!

Work Room - Week 4

The result is up: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1074374.html

So is the new topic: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1074517.html

There is something unusual about this topic. Something special.

One of the benefits of a certain level of Patron is the ability to send me topics. https://www.patreon.com/user?u=70027

This is one of them.

So if you don't like it, it's from one of your own! Blame them. Or blame them even if you like it. Either way. :D
