Green Room - Week 27 - 11

The hamster wheel is coming to a stop today and the fun is about to begin!

TODAY is the deadline for your entries to be in: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/800348.html

Which means, after having an extended deadline, due to tragic circumstances, most people will hurry up and put something together today. ;)

We've also had a "Love Thread/Q&A" thing going on, divided over the course of the last few days: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/802311.html http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/802740.html
http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/802866.html
http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/803106.html

So make sure to get over there and say something nice.

Looking at the numbers, and knowing about sacrifices I've already been told about as well as those forces that no one can quite predict, we will be hitting Top 50 this week, which is the last time byes can be used, as well as the final chance for the Power of Veto to come into play!

If you survive this week though, the ride is only going to get more interesting from here! :)

Top 50.

Damn.

I have nothing to say as I have given everyone love in the Love Thread and am hacking away at my NaNo and making uncomfortable realizations about my characters and storyline for this book. Sigh.

Stop being so awesome. You're making the rest of us look bad.

Thanks for running the love thread. It was a sweet idea and I appreciated the wonderful comments I've received.
The extra time meant I got to tackle an idea that came to me fully formed and wanting to be written, rather than the half-hearted ideas I'd been toying with before. I just hope it pans out well.

You're welcome.

I hope people took advantage of it as a chance to start talking to people they might not have before.

It's interesting to me to see how the LCIers will do.


Is there a stigma to coming in late?
What about the people voted out who came back in?

*Should* there be, or should people vote for the entries that they enjoy the most, regardless?

One of the things that I like about it is that it takes that "what matters to you" question and puts it out there. It's always interesting to see how people respond to it.

There should not be a stigma. There should never be a stigma on anything other than hurting other living beings.

My job has been stressful the last couple of weeks, and honestly I gave up pressure in non-job activties a while ago. So I have my entry in now, but I wouldn't feel guilty or bad if I finished it in a hurry tonight after work. My mental and emotional health is more important than a deadline that I don't get paid for.

Agreed! I always end up taking care of urgent real-life business, while I work my entry out in my head. This week, for example, my son got the croup on Thursday. This meant that he was even more clingy than normal and made it next to impossible for me to concentrate on writing this weekend.

That is my story and I'm sticking to it. Completely unrelated to the fact that I was also searching through the Sims 2 downloads on The Sims Resource site for wedding party outfits for four different couples graduating from Sim State University.

Just because we haven't posted our entries yet doesn't mean we haven't been working on them. Some of us have a kid with the croup, you know. :P

KFP would have posted his entry days ago! ;)

I confess.
I'm one of those folks "throwing something together at the last minute". I won't deny I'm a procrastinator by nature, but I had other things "running me ragged" physically and emotionally for most of the last week. Plus I'm not enthused about my story idea, so I don't think I'm "bringing my A-Game". However, I intend to have something in by the Deadline. Whether it's good enough for me to survive, however...

There's also a home game/killing floor topic for this week to be found here: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/801010.html

Right now I'm the only one who has posted anything there, and I want other folks to come and play!

I'm curious to see if there will be a twist to this week's voting or not.

There is, but it sort of got lost with everything else going on, and since no one posted in it, I figured that I'd direct folks to where they could do the most good.

If they *want* to do that though - AWESOME. I'm all in favor of it!

I finished all commenting on the love threads-- every contestant, because each of them has gifts and strengths and wonderfulnes. \o/

I spend a lot of time coding and testing this weekend, as there's a deadline today and I was behind thanks to questionable test hardware. But I did finish my entry. AND... the Ducks won. \o/

I'm back from Paris. Trying to throw my entry together ASAP amidst trip recovery because I'm leaving tomorrow morning for another business trip. I'm woefully behind on everything, especially commenting on the love threads. I'll get there, I promise.

How are you even awake? Or is "awake" different from "coherent"? ;)

O month of November, you have got to be frickin' kidding me!

Thank you, Gary, for coming up with the love thread idea. I haven't jumped on to share the love yet, but I will!

Also, I still need to kill Gary.

November, are you really for real?
