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! :)
