I'm really thankful for LJ and the people that I have found on line.

I know that I wouldn't have gotten through my divorce without it. Heck, I probably wouldn't be friends with my ex without it. Even though it threatened that situation more than enough times! But the trial was good, in the long run.

I've made some really wonderful people, and with the "LJ Idol Tour" this summer I was actually able to meet a lot of them face to face, and I am certainly thankful for that! It really did change my life for the better, as well as being able to check off one of my long term dreams and being one step closer to the next one!!

I'm thankful for my mom and her boyfriend Tony.

I'm thankful for my girls and for the boy. A "furry and feathery pet daddy" couldn't wish for better. They are responsible for getting me through the day to day and at times giving me a reason to get up in the morning.

But, right now, I'm damn sure thankful for you guys.

Not just this season's competitors, but each and every one of you who have supported LJ Idol from the "hey, I have an idea!" stage on my own LJ to a field of 154 contestants and apparently it being mentioned in some sort of forum at Philcon this year! (or maybe I got confused and it was afterward, but heck, ANYONE mentioning Idol in a positive light - other than me - is more than I could have ever dreamed happening.)

Thank you all so much.

***

That said - SURPRISE ELIMINATION TIME!!!!!!

Heh, sorry, just seeing if you were paying attention. No elimination until after the deadline on Monday.*g*

Hope those of you who celebrate it are having a wonderful Thanksgiving with the people that you love, and the rest of you are having a really good day and have fun plans for the weekend.

You too... weak heart! ;)

LJ Idol Tour was where Gary didn't visit me and why I keep telling him I made cookies, but ate them instead. No, not really... I mean to making cookies and eating them.

I haven't done Thanksgiving in YEARS, despite my mom always being "You have any friends who might alone and want to come over?".

I don't even watch the Parade! Back when I was a kid I would watch it from a 40-100 feet above out a huge window of a conference room from where my mother worked or something I knew from my acting career, but that was when I was a kid and gave a damn.

I'll admit, those huge balloons are cool though. I should see who was new for 2007. Shrek...okay... um... who the hell is Abby Kadabby, this is what I get for not having children to watch Sesame Street with I guess?!? and Hello City Superhero?!? WHAT!?!?

Okay, this comment is almost entry-esque, I think I'll post it there too.

jeibear, the ex for those playing the Home Game of Gary's life, actually came over this morning to watch the parade specifically because I told her there would be a Hello Kitty balloon. So there is an audience for it!!

Commenting is now open for golden_sands ljidol entry :)
Thanks to angstzeit I discovered that I had disabled commenting for my entry.

If anyone would like to comment, I would love to read what you have to say, regardless of what you think. *g*.

A belated happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it! I hope you all had an enjoyable day with family and/or friends!

I'm grateful that I cooked my first thanksgiving dinner, just me and my best friend for the whole thing.

We did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself. :)

Jeez! Give a girl a coronary!! ;)

I miss Thanksgiving!!!

I wish I was home sitting down to a nice huge meal with my whole family, after which all the men would fall asleep on the couch watching football and all the women would sit around the table shooting the breeze! :)

If there are any OTHER American people in England, we're having a big Thanksgiving dinner at my house on Saturday! :)

It was mentioned at Philcon. My girl and I walked into the LJ Meetup panel late and I shouted if anyone was in LJ Idol and there was one guy who was, but I can't remember who it was now!

I think pete_wisdom was there. Not sure if he was at that panel though. There were a couple other former contestants there as well.

I'm onto you Gary, no heart attacks here. I was like, Probably joking... yes, joking.

If this contest is still going in April you should do an evil April Fools thing like a crazy random elimation... and then ACTUALLY do it, just to be evil.

We have a new addition to our family... A MinPin named Santino. Naturally, he slept all day, so now at bedtime all he wants to do is play with his new froggie and rope. *g*

Oh yeah... I gotta be at work at 5am. Stupid Black Friday sales. GAH. Why can't everyone be done shopping already?! Slackers...

It's 9:30... I'm going to bed so that I can be up at 4AM...
