Green Room - Break Week - Day 1

All the news you need to know:

We had people who were voted out of the game: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/817385.html

and an old friend of Idol passing away: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/817496.html

We also had someone who is celebrating their 100th Week: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/817814.html

One of those things is clearly *not* like the others. Our hearts go out to the friends and family of erica_crawford


The other thing you need to know is that if my FIOS (internet *and* cable) had to go out, this was a good time for it - because I had said that last week was the "final vote of 2014" and I meant it.

Happy Holidays everyone!

There will still be Green Rooms - and I'll probably be posting some "Free Topics" to keep you occupied. But Topic 32 will NOT be posted until Jan 1st.

I know this will mess with some people's momentum. Which should make it even more interesting to see people downshift, only to have to get back into gear in a hurry! :)

When we come back, you will be going headlong to the finale. So make sure to rest up!

Cool! I may still write Home Game entries on the Free Topics, given time. Right now, I need to focus on Christmasy stuff, like helping KFP write the little children's book he wants to print and laminate for his new baby cousin!

Aw, that is the sweetest idea ever! Go KFP!

There will be no downshifting. I am like the bus from Speed, less one overly agitated Keanu Reeves.

ahaha sameee.

and this comment made me chuckle.

The Schwazz always has a snappy, zany and very humerous comment and outlook! :)

(makes me wonder about... er... smoking habits, yeah that's it) LOL

Mmm... Keanu Reeves! :)

We are on the road to Texas, with an overnight in Hope, Arkansas. Long drive still ahead for the day, but at least I have my phone, Internet, and the "Skin Game" (Dresden Files) audiobook to keep me and the hubby occupied.

Over 600 miles to go until we stop for the night...

I'm dogsitting all four dogs today. Ordinarily this wouldn't bother me except 1) our "special" boy has been acting out, which means that 2) housemates' adolescent boy is acting out, which means that 3) the other two are getting into the act, which means 4) I'm contemplating finishing off the wine even though it's only 11AM.

Nobody seems to care that I need to finish my shopping.

And I'm going to stop there lest I mar the GR festivities.

A break...

oh thank goodness. I was already starting to feel a bit exhausted, and the prospect of writing over the holidays was... um... more than a little daunting. Whew. This'll give me some time to recharge my writing batteries, read some books, and otherwise not stress about missing deadlines (because I'll be stressing about other stuff instead. Heh).

happy holidays Gary! :3

I've had a couple people ask me "What do you want for Christmas?"

and since I told them, I'll tell you as well, here in the comments in an empty Green Room where no one is going to see it! ;)

(1) No one else die. Seriously. Merry Christmas me.
(2) Fix my internet and cable! ;)
(3) I have an Amazon wish list.
(4) Become a Patron!!!
(5) Buy yourself a t-shirt. Especially one of those variant ones, because I'll be honest, I made one of those *for me*... but if no one else wants one, the shirt won't "tip" and I'll have to go with the original design. :)
(6) If you buy anything on Amazon - use the Idol link to get there.

Very glad for the break, mainly to get caught up on all the Xmas prep (I'm behind) and because we travel to Oregon after Xmas, and there is rarely time or sanity enough to do much of anything requiring focus while that goes on.

I'll still be checking the Green Room, though. And hoping we don't lose any Idol friends again any time soon. *sigh*

The break is much needed by my Muse. Thank you for that!

I'm sorry to hear of another passing.

I hope the magic of the season begins to seep into the day-to-day of everyone for the next two weeks. Winter Solstice!!!

So, you're saying I don't have an excuse to hide out from my MIL in the guest room? Thanks, Gary. Thanks a lot.


OH WAIT. I just realized that if it's posting on the 1st I'll still be there so YAY.

Thanks, Gary!

You can *tell her* there's a deadline!
Dec. 19th, 2014 09:32 pm (UTC)
Oh no I'll be bored. :{
Dec. 19th, 2014 09:37 pm (UTC)
I'll post some Free Topics!
Dec. 20th, 2014 04:13 am (UTC)
Me? Do anything I'm not forced into by a hard deadline? Never.

(No, I'll take them up, I think - I'm used to writing every week now. And I probably won't have any classes to take over winter intermission, I'll be sorely in need of something to do.)

That's Cool..:) It's cooler here in India as well..:P. "Happy Holidays Everyone. Have your share of Fun and then steal some more..:)"
