Green Room - Week 25 - Day 8

We filled the gas tank a couple nights ago - it was $2.91 a gallon! That's the lowest I've seen it in a really long time.

Of course, those numbers are probably going to climb back up after the mid-term elections. For "some reason", that just seems to be the way it works! ;)

***

Since LJ hasn't fixed the bug yet, I'm going to link directly to the polls that are closing tonight (AKA - ALL OF THEM!)

There is the Redemption Tribe: http://www.livejournal.com/poll/?id=1986105
The Main Tribe: http://www.livejournal.com/poll/?id=1986106

And there is also Last Chance Idol: http://www.livejournal.com/poll/?id=1986346

That's a lot of talent, on a really narrow ledge, that needs you to order to keep on going!

Voting is *tight* in a lot of cases, so your voice here could very much help tip the balance. So - in your opinion, what's the best stuff out there this week?

*refreshes for like an hour and a half*

*decides to go ahead and claim first*

I am all excited because on Saturday my mother is coming to visit, and we're taking her to the Renaissance Festival. She went for the first time last year and really liked it, and when I suggested going again this year she was all like yay and excite and said she would enjoy it very much.

She likes music and dancing and costumes and creativity and watching people enjoying themselves. :)

She is also excited about seeing the kittens. She says she has two picked out to adopt but she won't tell me which two until she meets them and sees if she connects with them.

Happy First! Enjoy the Ren Fest! I'm taking my kids to a haunted museum tomorrow night and that will have costumes and merriment too.

Right now I'm playing phone tag with Ortho as to what exactly is wrong with my wrist. I'm wearing a brace, but we all know this won't do when I go back to work on Saturday. Neither does constant naproxen popping.

We're in the "eye" part of a classic nor'easter right now too. The rain and wind will probably start whipping 'round again in a couple of hours. Lots of damage in the area last night and a lot of people lost power. We didn't but we've got water in the basement as usual when these things happen :p

:would be in a better mood if her wrist would behave itself:

what's the best thing you've ever written and what do you like about it?

For a long time, the best thing I'd ever written was my solo show, TRUE STORY. Then I revived the show two summers ago and realized I'd outgrown it :)

Now I think it's probably the memoir that I finished last spring. I hope someone buys it :) What I like about it is that it's the truth to the best of my recollection and nobody comes off particularly well. Which sounds kind of lame, but for me the process of writing it was all about coming to terms with not blaming other people, being honest about my own shortcomings, and being willing to lay my life on the table for other people to pick apart.

I have done all the reading and all of the voting! Voted yeah!

Then, because I like voting so much, I got in my car and went for early voting for the November elections. My strategy - always vote for someone who isn't currently in office. The guy with the job had his chance already!

Then I went to see my insurance agent and got a discount on my insurance because my employer made me take a driving safety course and I have the certificate for it. I followed that up by calling my internet provider and insisting on a cheaper rate. I hereby declare today Make Stuff Cheaper Thursday!!

I filled up my tank for 3.37/gal last night and was super excited. (I purposely stop at a gas station on the other side of the Bay from where I live because crossing the bridge tends to make gas at least $.15 more expensive.)

Hrmm, I read and voted in the main poll, and am trying to finish up second chance. I am expecting something interesting to be happening with both polls ending at the same time, I don't know what but am bracing for a twist.

I'm saving a lot of money by not being able to afford a car and never leaving the house unless I'm being driven to school, so ha.

Gas in my neck of the woods is $1.35/litre. I have no idea what that comes to per gallon, but it's expensive. Not as expensive as it's been, but it still sucks.

This has been a crappy week for me - sick as a dog Monday and Tuesday. Yesterday on my drive home I blew a tire on the highway. Scary as hell being stopped on the side of the highway during rush hour. Fixed today, and with the other things that needed to be done, we're out over $800... :-/ And today, I'm mentally preparing myself to be eliminated from the competition.

And I'm still reeling on a more national level - the shooting yesterday in Ottawa, and the soldier being run down in St. Jean sur Richelieu on Monday has me angry, shocked, sad, and super patriotic all at the same time. I don't know what the world is coming to...

And God bless my newest hero, Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers.

In Dubai it's $20 to fill the tank. Kind of expensive compared to Kuwait, though.

In the words of casting director, Bonnie Gillespie....You are your biggest fan. This article is about acting stuff, but it applies no matter what your field is. How can you expect others to be a fan of you unless you are a fan of yourself? It's not cocky, it's not arrogant, it's confidence.

That being said....my stuff is among the best stuff out there this week. You should read & vote for it.

Yeah yeah, just enjoy your >$3 a gallon. We Californians are just happy it has dipped below $4 a gallon.

Heh, right? I was starting to think the stations had thrown away the 3s. It's come down in the Bay Area but varies by a lot depending on where exactly you are.

Where in the state are you?

Hello from not-at-all sunny Seattle. :) I'm gallivanting again this week, and have been without internet for most of my visit so far. Today finds me in a coffee shop that has a lot of books in it, working on revisions and trying to catch up on things (like the last chance poll!). I'm glad I managed to do most of the voting on the plane earlier this week.

We are all on a narrow ledge this week! This thing is getting tight! I just begged everyone on the Facebook to vote for me for the first time.

It really is a close race this week, isn't it?!

Both icaruslived and impoetry wrote really neat things this week. I hope they'll be around longer still!
