Green Room - Week 8 - Day 1

Welcome back!!

The new topic will be posted a little later today, as well as more of the special powers assignments and the Second Chance Sign up sheet just went up: http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/408328.html so make sure to tell people you know who went out early or who have been hanging out on the edges this season saying "Maybe next time". Next time is now!!! :)

Hopefully everyone had a nice break and is ready to jump back into both the game, and real life - which seems to be starting back up for everyone as well. I'm not sure what this "work" thing is, what do you mean we aren't going to be stopping work to have a mini-party every other day? ;)

Party good

You are right the end of the years seems to have a lot of office parties attached to it.

Good luck to those who are taking their second shot at the title.

Thanks, I'll need it. I entered on the second chance but...ok, just need to relax and enjoy it for what it is right?

Even if I go out on the first week!

Did you enjoy your office parties? (or have any?)

Looking forward to getting back into the swing of Idol, and to reading the re-introductions of the second chancers!

Is there a deadline for the re-introductions?

Not that I'm signing up, but that might be something people want to know!

I'm curious about the signup deadline too. Hoping it stays up 'til Fridayish.

I'm more than willing to give that fic the love and care it needs to grow into maturity! :D So excited!

I'm glad I have a flat top stove this morning because my milk and water and canned pumpkin mixture boiled over when I turned around to get my mug out of the dishwasher. The mix is for a pumpkin oatmeal that I saw made on Aarti Party. Fortunately there was plenty mix left for the oatmeal, but oh the orange mess!

I hope I am not violating any rules here by doing this, but my last Lj Idol entry before break which was about the Christmas brouhaha, stirred up a bit of controversy, and over break, I composed an entry in response to this controversy. It is a little long, but here it is if anyone is interested. http://anastoff.livejournal.com/24047.html

To sign up... or not.... I did so miserably this season I don't think I have it in me to even give it a whirl again. :\

I think you have to look at the recent tribe structure as not really being indicative of your abilities if this were a different season. Because everyone's been grouped according to votes, it's made it a much more even and hard fought contest, whereas if this were an earlier season, you'd still be in.

I guess it just comes down to why you do Idol and how much you enjoy it. I signed cheese up because, yes, I think it was voted out prematurely, but really, it's more because I enjoy writing those entries and it's good to have an excuse to do it within the contest and have a broader readership. So if you think you'll have fun writing, go for it and try not to stress about results, which is, of course, easier said than done.

I'm going to have to think on what to do for the re-introduction. It's interesting and exciting!

Here's to getting eliminated again! ;)

Now, however, I'm going to ignore wise advice by going to the grocery store even though I'm hungry. I've got a shopping list. Hopefully I can at least mostly keep to it?

I'm looking forward to what the beginning of Phase 2 might bring, but it might just have me tearing my hair out. We shall see. My semester starts today as well, which I don't feel quite ready for. I wanted a little more time to get used to 2011 before the hard stuff started!

I'd love to get back into Idol in the Second Chance game,(using my alternate ID, of course), but I'm not sure I could fully commit now, given my mother's situation and need for care. I never know what each week will bring. My life will roll this way till at least March or April. That being said, should there be opportunities to come in as a guest/ partner writer for a specific week here or there, I just might be able to do that! Ya never know.

Happy Monday and Back to Life, Back to Reality Day to all! AW

Try again..you can always drop out if you have to.

I'm nervous too but that's what I told myself when I joined up on the second chance...

Ugh. Back to RL. My alarm clock even fought against Monday by not going off. I have no clue what happened, it was still set this morning and if it had went off, it wouldn't still be set. Luckily my internal alarm kicked in and I got up right on time (the alarm that failed is my "warning" alarm meaning it's a warning that I'm gonna be miserable very soon!)

It was a fabulous weekend with java_fiend as usual :)

Mornin' Folks!

I was dreading going to work today... but then last night I remembered that I have today off!!! I don't know how I could forget such a wonderful thing but I did. And now I feel like it's a nice surprise... kinda like finding a twenty dollar bill on the ground. :-)

So... I am just relaxing with some good coffee, good music, a furry feline and the sound of the rain today... 'tis a good day. Looking forward to getting the Idol train rollin' again!!!

You're just too cute forgetting about your day off! I remembered you saying you had the Monday after NYE off, but thought I may have misheard you!

I'm glad you're relaxing sweetheart *hugs*
