Green Room - Week 23 - Day 2

Last night marked the start of Last Chance Idol, with the very first poll: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/786561.html so make sure to get out there - read, comment and vote your favorites to have the opportunity to get into the main competition!

It also marked the start of people emailing me saying that they were confused about when the deadline as and was there *any* shot of another opening to get into the competition?

Because "Last Chance" is kind of vague that way. ;)

My normal response would be "sorry", but (1) this is the last full season and (2) With that "unmentioned thing" hanging over me tomorrow, I want as much good karma as possible. Plus, I wasn't actually eliminating anyone this week from LCI.

So here is the deal: PEOPLE CAN SIGN UP UNTIL THE DEADLINE FOR WEEK 2'S ENTRY. Sign up, and submit your entry there, once the time comes If you do not, you are not in LCI and never will be. If you do, you can be a part of it. Until then, make sure to follow instructions over here: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/782944.html so that we know you are interested.

I think I'm being more than fair with this - and probably will be spark some of the "You're being TOO generous" cries of protest. But at the start of your average Idol season, I tend to be overly generous - to make up for when I'm not later in the season. :)

Don't worry, that balance won't be tipped in that direction for too much longer!

***

Speaking of "the main competition" - there is a deadline there as well. One that isn't going to be changing. http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/785896.html is the topic, and the Work Room where people are discussing it (and other matters) is http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/786119.html

***

Today is the last day before "D-Day" of that thing I'm talking about - the last day for things to resolve themselves on their own. So if you are the kind of person who sends out good thoughts/lights candles/sacrifices goats/plots the death of my enemies/whatever and you have an extra wish to throw on that particular fire, I'd appreciate you doing so.

***

Btw - Idol now has an Ello and diaspora* account, in addition to our Facebook and Twitter. So if you are on those want to follow us, come find us! :)

Wow, so I DIDN'T totally blow it by completely forgetting about the deadline? I'd been out of town with nothing but an iPad for communication all week until yesterday, and then of course I was too lazy to do anything productive when I got back home.

First?

This is the second day of pouring rain here :(

I've got more but it's a pain to post from my phone.

Here it is the second day of sunshine after over a week of rain and clouds.

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you, Gary. :)

In other news, I have an idea, but I don't know if I have the time to execute it between now and the deadline. Working 3rds and subsisting on something like 4 hours of sleep does not produce much writing, from me. I'm hoping that between my nap later today and when the child gets dropped off at the ex's, I can somehow knock out an entry in like an hour. I hope.

Otherwise I'll be struggling to get it done at all, on Thursday. I think.

*shores up* I'm out of my groove right now, too. As much as I loved the intersecting it really knocked my Muse around a bit. :(

Keep writing, bb.

I'm not sure what is up with LJ - I choose an icon for my comment (either on my phone or directly on the web page) and it just posts using my default icon instead. I can edit to change the icon, but that gets annoying... Argh.

Someone else mentioned the same thing when I was reading my flist earlier today. So, I don't know why it's happening, but you're not alone!

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS GARY WHY.

I was all at peace with the idea that my deadline for the novel would clash with LCI's first deadline and I just knew I couldn't manage both. And now this?

You've thrown me into confusion and disarray! Ack!

Sigh. Oh well. All the best for tomorrow, anyway. Meanwhile, I'll go to bed and dream about deadlines...

Confusion and disarray - sounds like my teeny tiny closet, lol!

The nicer you are to them, the more we'll haze them.

Did I say that out loud?

Sending good thoughts for tomorrow.

Ha! I'm being proactive and hazing / reading all the newbies first, because it seemed like a good idea at the time!

I want to read SCI, but I still need to get my own piece written. Maybe this will be more motivation to get started already.

Also, with us at 58 people currently, who knows how many leaving but some arriving for next week - I am holding out hope that byes will be good until the end of this month. We're going on a trip for our anniversary and while I'd like to write, I'd love to have the option to bag it without that being the end.

I am wishing good things for you Gary.

On the plus side since none of the SCI people are being eliminated this round, if you're pressed for time it seems slightly less imperative to get everything read and voted on...
