Voting - Week 30

Sitting in the Panera, next to the AA Bible Study Group meeting, I was wondering if everyone was going to make it across the finish line this week.

Maybe it was the prayer circle, or the adherence to the structure of their study guide, or how close their discussion of putting yourself into the hands of a higher power who will bend you to their will - and how closely that matches the conversations of Idol contestants... but I think everyone did pretty damn well!

There were two who decided to be smelly hippies and drop. ;)

They know who they are, but in case they are looking for their names - goodbye to lawchicky and rattsu! It’s actually sad to see you go, I was looking forward to torturing you for awhile longer!!

As for the remaining contestants, jacq22 only finished 5 of the 6 entries, due to her surgery. Considering the timing of the announcement, and the surgery, it fell into that pocket of “No Man’s Land” where I’m honestly not sure if she even saw it posted. So, I’m going to show some mercy, and give her a *shot* at sticking around...

Because voting is going to work a little differently this week. Which, you kind of expected that, now didn’t you?

There are 6 entries from each contestant.

This is a Season contestant only voting round. Which means IF YOU SIGNED UP AND COMPETED DURING THIS SEASON OF LJ IDOL, YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO VOTE!!!

(Just make sure to identify yourself)

Send an email to clauderainsrm@gmail.com with your 5 FAVORITE ENTRIES FROM EACH TOPIC! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/574285.html

We will be losing the 6 contestants with the lowest overall selections/scores.

The deadline for people to send me their votes is Thursday, June 21st at 7pm EDT - so, if you haven’t started yet, GET READING!!!

Good luck to everyone!

Hopefully I'll get time to read. I'm going to bed now so I can get up at 3:30 to go to a conference for work. I need to remember about voting.

I have to say I'm impressed that so many people managed all 6 posts! That said, this is going to be one hairy vote. *bites nails*

Gary, I think you're missing a 2 in Jacq22's name there.

He fixed it. :)

jacq22 isn't the only one to have missed the final topic.

I frequently don't read my friends' list from about Thursday night to mid-day Tuesday, so I completely missed the "added topic" until I scrolled up through the entry post today, to check what time the entries were due.

If I hadn't, I'd have forfeited without realizing it.

Writing and posting that final entry in a little over an hour is one of the least fun Internet-related things I've ever done. :( :(

I didn't realize Jacq was still trying to work all this in around surgery. I kept thinking she'd already had it done. Gah. Wish I'd had a second bye to give away, on her behalf.

*hugs* Oh, wow. I was watching the topic thread, too, going "Where are they?" but it didn't occur to me to send a note and make sure you'd seen it until around 7:50, when I was counting down the last five or so people to get all of theirs in....

Re: Anyone care to double-check my work?
I'm still working on the per-topic list, but I know the last two are correct because those were required topics and only jacq22 was unaware of the late one.

I have noticed, randomly, that alycewilson, n3m3sis42, imafarmgirl and I all wrote the same six topics. But I'm only about a third of the way through making my own list of authors per category. *sigh*

I am not sure!! but am back on board and reading. Pain is pretty heavy though. Can't take one of the pills, so only low duty stuff.

40. Each person wrote six, but there were eight.

A question that occurred to me.
Do votes for ourselves count?

If they do, I'd be a fool not to get those six votes, but then that's six fewer votes for other deserving contestants.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, this helps me enormously and whatever happens will have a try, am in your debt sista!

Pain is bothering me I am at the computer using a table but nothing right now stops it hurting some of the time, surgery was only 6 days ago ....

Good luck to everyone.
