Results - Week 24

Wow.

I logged on tonight just in time to see what I "thought was going to happen" change. Not all of it. But even that shifted quite a bit to the point where I wasn't completely sure where the momentum was going to end up going.

When it comes to such a talented group of writers, I'm not at all surprised at how close the voting has been. I imagine that it is only going to get even more so as we move closer to the end.

Unfortunately though, part of moving forward is saying goodbye to some people - people who have been absolutely fantastic to have along for this ride, and I hope we will continue to see in the Home Game, and cheering for their favorites!

Today, we are losing:

cheshire23
walkertxkitty from Redemption

and from the main tribe
beeker121, mac_arthur_park and shimmerdream

I didn't even realize, until I was typing the names, that all of them are veterans. Which is either a testament to how awesome our veterans are, that there are so many of them left at this point. Or a testament to how awesome our newbies are... possibly both!

Whoa, not what I expected either! A lot can change in just a few hours.

Sad to see all those people go!

I am really disappointed to be losing shimmerdream!!! Seriously, hon, I had you right up there in my book with a few of my favorites, such as halfshellvenus, jexia, and kickthehobbit. Please, please, please home game???

I was excited to get mac_arthur_park back, and now we have to be letting go of her again so soon... it just doesn't seem fair.

As a theater buff and a creative, I have always enjoyed reading beeker121 every week!

I love how much cheshire23 lets us in on her insights on the world, she shares her perspective, and her heart... she's such a kind soul. She gives us food for thought. I will would miss that, except, thanks to LCI, I suppose I don't have to.

Aw thanks for the shout out. You and I have gotten into some intriguing artistic conversations, but I'll still be around to hold up my end.

Huh. On the bright side I was probably taking my last bye this upcoming week anyway.

On the super bright side cheshire23 has an amazing piece in second chance this week, so I'm hoping she can bounce right back in.

It's an honor to be on this list with all of you, even if it makes me grumpy. Good company makes things easier.

:( YOU WILL BE MISSSSSSSSSED. Who will make amazing puns now?

I do second that cheshire23 has an amazing piece in LCI this week, though.

I has a sad. :( I don't want anyone to leave.

Plus I have a soft spot for Beeker21 and shimmerdream.

I kept trying to come up with a clever response referencing soft spots but everything sounded horribly dirty - heh.

Thank you, though, for keeping me in your soft spot (see?).

I'm going to miss walkertxkitty. She always had some of the most interesting entries.

Thanks! I intend on continuing in the home game, time permitting. There were far too many instances where real life nearly took me out,

I'm so happy to have participated and made it this far. Thanks, everyone.

LJI has been a real boon and comfort to me. I looked back over entries ad realized I've been doing this since season three. It's done so much for my skills and self esteem. I wouldn't have recognized the work as mine, had I not read it in my own journal.

See you all in the home game, time permitting. We're about to put in the autumn crops.

Well, this didn't come as a surprise to me - I was struggling in the polls from the start.

My aim was to do better than I did in Season 8 and I achieved that, so I'm happy. And thanks to everyone for their encouraging comments on my entries. LJ Idol has been huge amounts of fun.

Now on to my next creative writing project... updating my CV!
