It's going to be interesting though to see how things shake out vs how people currently think they are going to happen. After all, real life happens - and the game itself happens. There is still plenty of time to go, and plenty of game to play. Anyone counting a victory, or defeat now might want to stop for a moment to consider that.
After all, there is still contestant voting going on right now:
The voting details are here - http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/303858.html
We've crossed the halfway threshhold of votes, barely. Which means that almost anything can still happen. I don't *expect* the top portion to be in danger of elimination, but their positions are changing, and that bottom portion is spreading out into the middle, meaning that there is a fair chance of some surprises. I think most any result is going to be a bit of a surprise, just because everyone has lasted to this point which makes saying goodbye just that much more difficult.
Speaking of surprises - if you have socks on, you might as well take them off now. Or at least secure them so you don't lose them. Details on that soon.
The Free Topic is out there for folks who want to write/read some great new stuff. Again, this would be a really good idea for people from the Home Game who might want to get noticed and/or people who think that they might be on the cusp of elimination this round. If you think "maybe my entry this week wasn't as good as it could have been", then having another entry out there in people's faces as they are voting might not be the worst idea I've ever heard!
