Green Room - Week 21 - Day 6

It was a busy night - we had both results http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/780659.html AND a new poll going up! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/780955.html

We also crossed that 75 contestants barrier and are potentially heading down that slalom to 50. I say "potentially" because everyone knows about that second chance that is due to pop up at any time! Who knows how that is going to end up impacting the numbers and dynamics!

Do YOU have people you know who might want to jump into the fray? Not just those who were involved earlier this season - but newbies who have been sitting on the sidelines, that might want their last chance to taste what a "full/regular season" of LJ Idol is like! Granted, coming in that way is a lot more difficult to get to the end. But, hey, it's a shot!

Tell me something funny. I *need* something funny right now.

something (hopefully) funny:

what's big, green, fuzzy, has four legs, and if it fell out of a tree would kill you?

a pool table!

well, it makes me laugh....

(and now that i've shared the stupid joke, i'm going to go read some entries.)

oh, hey, first!

Two fish are sitting in a tank and one fish turns to the other fish and says, "Hey, I didn't know you knew how to drive one of these things!" Hahahahaha

*cough* Okay, maybe not. ;-)

Being in the Redemption Tribe makes me nervous.

So if someone could tell me if the week during which you are eliminated counts toward the Grand Total of Idol weeks?

I am asking because my goal was making mine at least 50, and if it does I have reached it, and if not, I have at least 2 to go.

It's "Weeks survived".

If you go out in Week 20, you survived 19 weeks.

Too early for a joke, but never to early for a question. If I understand it correctly, we cannot use byes after the 50 contestant level. Is that number counting both the redemption and the main tribes together, or just the main tribe? You can see what's on my mind.

Total number of contestants, regardless of tribe.

Well, it's not really a joke, but it was an amusing back-and-forth commentary between myself and hosticle_fifer last week. He'd mislabeled his post as week 18 (instead of 20) and I called him on it. He commented to me:

Be the change you want to see in the world, they told me. ;)

And I replied: Hmm, I thought they only told that to tollbooth operators? ;)

Well, it amused me, anyway! :)

That's an old people joke.

No one knows what a toll booth operator is these days! ;)

I think one of my real life friends will want to do second chance. I've been whining to her about the comp for ages and she's dubbed LJ Idol 'Forever fic' :)

ETA: 'something funny': I was just reading an article about typical 'British' things, as written by an American. And there was a making tea one which was surprisingly accurate: I don't drink tea, and only make it for others rarely, but the notion of someone putting the tea bag and milk in before the water still makes me squirm.

WHY WOULD YOU MAKE TEA THAT WAY?!

Also another one of the things: British people find enthusiasm cringeworthy: this is so hilarious because of how wrong it is! I might fall off my chair with laughter. (Although I sometimes am unsure what I'm supposed to do when faced with an enthusiastic American Waiter/waitress, are we supposed to hold conversations, or just give polite quick replies.)

Also, I'm not British... But I do think 'British' tends to include 'Australian' when speaking to an American!! Well, Australian and Kiwi and South African and...

So I help my grandmother get downstairs yesterday--she's 92, and she needs someone to stay a few steps ahead of her on the stairs in case she stumbles--and then I go back upstairs for a while. (Tuesdays are a different routine, because it's Shower Day, so she's already had breakfast and I don't need to get anything else for her once she's down.) Ten or fifteen minutes later, I go back down for something, and she looks at me and tells me she's lost her dentures and can't find them. I shake out the throw blanket, paw through her wastebasket filled with snotrags tissues, get down on the floor to look under the chair and the sofa--nothing. No dentures. How do you not only have your dentures fall right out of your mouth, but fall someplace unfindable?

I ask her if she's sure she was actually wearing them when she came down. She says yes. I head back upstairs, anyway, to check, because she's 92, and she forgets things. Sure enough, there's her dentures sitting on her bed. She'd taken them out for something, and forgot to put them back in.

(And yes, I washed my hands after pawing through the snotrags.)

If you need funny, you should come live here. My grandmother is an endless source of entertainment.

Q: What's green and sits in a corner?

A: A naughty frog

Sometimes the ones that are funny to kindergarteners are still the best.

I need to get back to reading entries now.

Last week, Timmy was completely underfoot while his Uma was trying to get the dishwasher loaded. Worried that he would get hurt, Uma put him in his little corral and told him she'd spring him in a few minutes when the dishes were done.

He didn't appreciate this one bit.

So he whined for a bit, and she kept reassuring him that he could come out in just a couple of minutes.

So he ripped off his diaper and pissed on the floor.

And now we all know exactly how he feels about being in the corral when there are dishes to be done.

During Soviet times an American went to visit his friends in Russia. After vacationing for a while there, he says to them, "You know, I don't know how you can stand the lack of freedom here. Why, in America, I can run across the White House lawn screaming "RONALD REAGAN SUCKS!!!" and nothing bad will happen to me."

His friends are offended. "What the hell are you talking about? We have great freedom here! Why, in Russia, we can run across the Red Square screaming "RONALD REAGAN SUCKS!!!" and nothing bad will happen to us either!"
