Green Room - Week 17 - Day 6

Good morning.

Contestants - make sure you get out and vote http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/439978.html your individual votes have never mattered more!!

Well, OK, they have. Pretty much every week. But let's pretend that this is the most important vote in the history of voting! Never before has a vote meant so much to so many people!!!

Cities will crumble. Mountains will stop collective bargaining. Sequels will become prequels and Madness with take it's toll, and not just in the middle of the street anymore.

I will implore you though, once you are done reading the entries of your opposite numbers, to check out your own tribe. Read their entries. COMMENT on their entries. It's one of the downsides of people going "Oh, I don't have a poll to watch" that sometimes that means that they just wander off.

But if you are voting for another tribe OR ESPECIALLY if you are NOT a current contestant - take the time to read both tribes.

There is some stuff well worth your time and attention there. You could discover a new favorite or be reminded just why you love "Contestant X"'s stuff so much.

***

So, what ELSE is going on out there in the world???

I have just finished reading tribe 1 and sent in my votes. Tomorrow I intend to read some more of tribe 2 (I pre-read some before the vote post) because it really is a great distraction from waiting for results, but also I know there are pieces there I want to read. :D

This is what happens when you try to educate children...

First escapes you!

I have read all of tribe 1 and voted according to who I felt deserved it. It's interesting not having a cap on vote numbers.

It's a dreary, cold rainy day up here today, but I'm determined to not fall into the mood it invokes. To that end, I shall endeavor to go out and do something exciting!

...um yeah :p

Actually I'm going to play Suzy Homemaker and vote on Tribe 1! And decide what to have for dinner early enough so I won't panic come 3PM!

IN A WORLD WHERE THE STAR WARS PREQUELS WERE ACTUALLY GOOD. DUN DUN DUUUUUNN. [/Movie Announcer Voice]

Last night in my dream I learned that Eric Bana is a good kisser. Clearly. Because my subconscious would NOT lie to me about these things! What happened in your dreams, Idolers?

I've just had an awesome delivery of a shed load of cheap slasher DVDs plus Dinner for Schmucks, which was my favourite movie of last year. I am VERY happy, even though this will distract me from the reading and writing I have to do workwise.

Oh my, I've been crazy busy the last couple of days! I'm dealing with another round of fallout from my mother's death - namely that we cannot find any trace of her bank accounts and that it will probably take a legal bank search to find them. The most confusing part was despite the tyrant she was I don't think she was that level of creative.

It's an icky dreary day out, a good day to sleep for a couple more hours and putter around cleaning the house, and maybe play some Portal or the like. I'm not feeling very motivated, I must admit.

Really? No canceled checks, no passbooks, nothing like that?

I had trouble with one of my mother's accounts, but luckily I remembered enough about it to actually call the bank in question. I had present myself there with legal proof that I was her daughter -- after that, I got the info with no problem.

I finished and voted for tribe 1! I will start reading and commenting on tribe 2 tonight!

I'm at work, but I don't want to work. I'm already grumpy in my head at my co-workers. My hair looked good when I left the house, but something changed on the drive to work because now it looks like I came in off the streets.

Hmm what else? I'm going to get to sleep early tonight since I don't have an entry to write! I'll read the rest of the entries bit by bit over the next few days, but I seriously need sleep. This DST coupled with new work hours that requires getting up at 5 am (which turns into 5:35 am instead) has taken it's toll on me!

Hot chocolate with a shot of espresso will save the day today though :)

Cool stuff today!
I'm a reader on the doctoral dissertation of a woman who was my supervisee a few years ago during her clinical practicum. Today she is defending her dissertation and we're signing it.

Ten years ago, I went through the same process. Today I get to go help someone I mentored as she gets her doctorate. I just love that.

Otherwise, I'm just hanging on til spring break next week!

I read and commented and voted for Tribe 1. I'm hoping to make my way through some more Tribe 2 entries this afternoon. There are some great entries this week so far. It's really making me nervous, especially since I wrote something more twisted than my usual style.

Otherwise, I'm working from home and trying to enjoy this rainy day. The weather is supposed to improve tenfold by the end of the week and I can't wait!

Oh I just remembered, today would be my 3 year anniversary with my ex. Yikes!

It's now known as my one year antiversary. Though technically we were separated even last year at this time, but hey, it's the first one since the divorce. I feel like celebrating my freedom from the nastiness that is my ex, but since I don't drink really, I'll just sleep soundly tonight :)

A lot of chaos if you are a parent!
Here's a post that made me truly LOL...the comments are great too:

http://www.danoah.com/2011/03/you-said-what-to-your-kid.html#idc-cover

It's about things you never thought you would say..until you became a parent.

Here's an example from the comments on that post:

"My 6 yr old son asked me if he could pick his baby brother's nose and I said no he then said" ok I won't do it again."

Re: A lot of chaos if you are a parent!
Oh wow at some of those! That's crazy!

I once told my 5 year old nephew that he needed to be quiet as I was backing up in a busy parking lot (so I could concentrate). He asked "why?" and without thinking, I responded "because if not, I might accidentally run over someone...and kill them..." he got quiet very quickly and I felt like the worst aunt ever for coming up with that response to a 5 year old! But it was true, I really was worried I might hit someone!
