Green Room - Week 16 - Day 8

In a world gone mad and a society filled with social deviants, isn't it refreshing to know that there is something good, and right, in the world? It's right here in Idol http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/436587.html and every week it continues to promote. . .

Wait. I got that mixed up didn't I? It's the people causing all the problems in the wold and the social deviants who are the ones IN the poll every week!!

I always get those two confused.

But isn't it refreshing to know there is a place, outside of being institutionalized, that people can come and click on polls every week and wear out their fingers, and the refresh button?

It's funny I was just telling my grandma about this community. I said, Livejournal (as a whole) is just like anywhere else you go in real life; that you can stumble down the wrong path and encounter some truly mean spirited people, but then you find those really awesome tight-knit communities (LJI, what) that really make up for all the bad in the world. ^^

Nobody is free from drama, of course, but this place has been more home to me than anywhere else in a very long time. ^^ So yes, Gary, there IS something good, and right, in the world. And it's right here in Idol. ^^

Wow, I think someone fed me sunshine and rainbows for breakfast. For the past few days. Or maybe that book I read was really spiritually cleansing. I found myself thinking of all the insecurities and unresolved issues in my life, then felt them kinda melt away when I used some of my tried and true techniques as well as some of the new ones I read about.

It's making me a lot more hop-skippy lately.

Or it could just be because I'm on vacation.

Yaknow, that too.

Anyway, this is getting long. HELLO EVERYONE!!! ^^

It's always interesting to try and explain Idol to people who don't get it, especially non-LJ people even. I doubt they can understand the awesomeness fully. I also Think the non-social Idolers are missing out on a lot. I love the social component of the game and have met so many great friends here.

Hope you're having fun on vacation!

I've been up the last few nights with leg cramps and all sorts of nifty stuff :p When coworkers tell you it looks like you've been run over by a train, it's time to consider that perhaps they're correct.

I meant to go back to bed an hour or so ago. Why am I still here?!?!?

Legs cramps are the worst :(

I love polls. They're so refreshing! ;)

My teammates at work surprised me with a Thank You card and a $20 Starbucks gift card for helping enter tons of case plans into our computer system and "going above and beyond." It was very sweet of them!

I admit that I havent been keeping track of anything lately (it's not by choice just that I only have so much time in the mornings now)

I do miss the "shhhush... Read so and so's entry, I love/hate that person!" but it gets everyone reading and maybe other entries too... Ones that might not otherwise get noticed..

Bleh.. Don't listen to me hell I'm not like other people, I don't drink coffee, sing, dance (no wait.. I can dance but I'm on a roll here) and all that jazz

Oh yeah... It's hump day *snickers*

I'm tiiiired. It's not even 10pm here and I think I'll head to bed. But I just wanted to say: I've commented on every entry (I think! Big claim to make, now I'm wondering if I happened to miss someone!) so now I feel a real sense of achievement.

OK. Bed. Have a good Wednesday, everyone.

What a busy work week! Grrr! I haven't had time to do anything fun! *pouts*

So seriously, I am so happy to have had extra time for reading entries this week. It's made all the difference.

Would anyone like a Nekot Cookie? It's what's for breakfast. :)

I really hope LJ has their act together and emails me comments again! Grr! It's hard to follow the GR from my phone at work as it is, but to respond to comments, it's easier to click from the email than to scroll through. If I missed people's comments, I apologize.

I'm walking Annabelle now as I speak...and there are ducks taking advantage of the heated pool at my apartment. It's too cute and totally put me in a good mood this morning :)

Whew. I'm glad I fixed that embarrassing autocorrect mistake before someone commented... I really meant DUCKS, not what my phone made it into at first. Just shows that my phone has just as dirty of a mind as I do :)

WRONG AGAIN!!!
How dare you imply that I am a "social deviant"!

Nothing could be further from the truth!

I'll have you know that I'm about as ANTI-social as a deviant can be!

It's Wednesday! I think today I'll take a look at all of the things I was SUPPOSED to get done by March this year and have failed at massively. I mean, there are things I've succeeded at, like not forgetting to post to Idol, but I need to redo some of my goals. It seems like a good time.

I should also do some work too. For some reason that keeps showing up on my desk, even when I send it back.

What are your Wednesday plans, Idolers?

java_fiend and I often have those types of conversations too. Apparently people don't get that we are talking about creepy *fiction*, they just assume we are crazed killers or something.

That sounds about right! :D

It IS nice to come here. It's sort of like Cheers. Just like anywhere else, I'm sure there are people who may not like each other, but here it's the ones who do like each other that speak up. It's a very positive place!

And now, I must away, back to the salt mines.

Clearly, Gary is referring to those other deviants in the poll.

Idol is a great place filled with lots of wonderful goodness and awesome people. I seriously love this joint. Even when the polls are making me totally squeamish... like every week!

But I've met some amazing people through Idol... not the least of which is the wonderful pixiebelle... that I probably would never have crossed paths with otherwise.
