Green Room - Week 3 - Day 2

Someone ran a red light this morning, and had to slam on their brakes and swerve to avoid hitting me as I was crossing the street.

Which is how I know it wasn’t anyone who had ever participated in Idol. You would have sped up.

I did, however, have a moment where my life flashed before my eyes – and had to ask myself some serious Life Questions. Such as “Have I ruined enough people’s lives recently?”, “How can I do more to torment Idolers?” and of course, “Who are these kids and what are they doing on my lawn?”

I need to do more to address these important issues, but for now, I’ll stick to the new topic(s) http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/658082.html
And Second Chance http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/658326.html

Good grief, Gary.

Glad you're here to torture us another day!

Yeah, you haven't ruined my life since... uh, July or August of last year. Yes, I am still traumatized by that hell week. I know, save it for my therapist. :P

Hm, I spent like 3 hours hashing out what I am writing next. Structure is hard. Haha.

Ugh. Poor Gary, scaring that motorist half to death!

I once got run down by a dude on a motorbike as I was getting off a bus many years ago. He, alas, was passing the bus on the right hand side, and was obviously not expecting the doors to open and have someone be getting off the bus at that very instant as he was illegally passing it!

Knocked us both down, fortunately I only got some scrapes and bruises. It could have been a lot worse!

My partner and I are currently working on our entries - she's got a pretty awesome first draft going; I've yet to write mine, but hopefully I'll get a draft to her later today. :)

Well damn, that's the last time I hire an assassin who supposedly specializes in vehicular homicide and "making it look like an accident." It's so hard to find good help these days!

Psssst... Drone strikes are more effective. After all, if he's out of his apartment, he's not in 'Merica anymore, so he's fair game!

Whew! Glad you're okay!

I don't think you've ruined my life... I though these intersections would be the death of me, but I'm really enjoying them so far! Clearly you are not being dastardly enough. ;)

I tend not to make updates on "the project" due to Cynthia occassionally checking out Idol. Fortunately, she is busy today and doesn't tend to go very far into the comments sections of Green Rooms anyway!

So, I can say that the ring arrived!!!

Also, I took her daughter aside last weekend - which was *supposed* to be the time I was proposing, and talked to her about it. I decided to be old fashioned, with a new twist, and ask her for her blessing. Considering that she's *the* most important person in her Mother's life, and who was about to have her life changed, I wanted her to be included in the decision.

She burst out with a huge smile and ran into my arms with a huge hug.

So, yeah, this is happening....

I'm happy I could help in a small way. <3

Woke up at 4am this morning with a fever of 101 point something. Less fever now, but still out of it.

Was hoping today would be better... chance to work on writing. Think it will be more sleep times instead.

Glad you're okay!

I've got a nice first draft going and am anxious to see what my partner thinks of it! In the meantime, today I'm running around trying to get work things sorted and also trying to stay cool. Who let a heat wave in here in the end of May!?</p>

Permit test round two tomorrow. I'm more concerned about finding two pieces of mail that are dated during the last 90 days -- do you know how few pieces of mail are dated? It's ridiculous. Cross your fingers for me!

That is a lousy way to start the day. I mean, the "not dying" part is pretty neat, but the "brush with death and loads of adrenaline" part is unfun, I'm sure.

This morning I whacked weeds with a weedwhacker, and it was surprisingly fun. Lawn people are supposed to be coming and helping to tame the jungle that is my front yard into some semblance of order (but not just a monoculture green grass thing because ugh, that just depresses me), but rain has delayed them until next week. And the weeds were getting impressive. My neighbors were starting to give me those significant looks and I swear, some of those weeds looked a little inclined to eat people.

And now, more writing...

I cannot persuade my husband to buy a new weedwhacker! Ours hasn't worked in probably more than 10 years.

Well, I believe I see a Father's Day present on the horizon... ;)

Your brain is very gorgeous, but it is not like my brain. Ugh, math. *shudders*

Daily Greenroom Rating
Hmmm 7.5 out of 10 geoducks -- concise with prominent mentions of intentionally tormenting people, plus references to own near death! No arcane pop culture references. Altogether a very good Green Room Post!

Re: Daily Greenroom Rating
Honestly, I've never had good geoduck ... is this actually a good rating?

(Full disclosure: I also can't get into boiled baby octopus, or pickled eggs. Not for lack of trying.)

We were once driving through a busy intersection in Chicago when this crazy lady decided to turn left across 3 lanes of traffic right in front of us.

I mean right in front. And then she just stopped in our lane staring. WTF?

We had to swerve into oncoming traffic to avoid hitting her and I felt our front bumper brush her back bumper. It wasn't until then that she started moving. Idiot.

It just happened to be on my birthday while we were on the way to breakfast with our youngest daughter in the car (then 2 or 3). I couldn't stop shaking through the whole meal.

We actually had someone pull up next to us at the next light to tell us the lady was insane and that was some fancy driving. He had been right behind us and had to swerve to avoid us and was shocked we didn't hit her.

*hugs* I'm glad it came out okay and no one got hurt. But yeah - there are a lot of people who should really not be behind the wheel of large hunks of metal.
