This is definitely one of them. Because I have to break some bad news.
I’d much rather be announcing that I will eliminate 50 of you in a poll, or that I have “accidentally” confused the swimming pool and the shark tank again, while “apologizing” that the “Idol family swim party” ended so badly!
Today, I’m announcing that two Idolers need to drop out. The first one is pen_name. She will definitely be missed, I was looking forward to the development of the story and the big reveal… but that will just have to wait for a time when she has more time. Everything is OK with her, other than the things that are so very obviously wrong with her! : )
The other one though is a bit of a shock to those who have been following along this season: oneonthefence is going back to the hospital for the next couple of weeks, effective immediately, and won’t be able to continue to participate. If you’ve followed her throughout her time in Idol, you know what a rollercoaster her life has been. One of those old wooden coasters where they haven’t repaired it in 60 years or so…
I mentioned it, in a comment, a couple of days ago – but there is a fund set up to help with her hospital bills: http://www.indiegogo.com/helpingoutmandi for those who wish to participate in that.
For the rest of you, there is still a deadline to meet! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/617893.html
And when you get the chance, be sure to check out what Second Chance has to offer: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/617661.html They had their own tragic drop outs this week, but don’t think you are going to get the same break that they did! : )
