Green Room - Week 35 - Day 3



I'm going to wait for a little while longer, because I know there is a lot riding on this particular immunity and want to make sure we get it right. After that - well, I'll make a call on it. (The good thing being we don't *absolutely need to know* until the vote itself closes, so while it can be annoying, for some, to wait, it's not truly time-sensitive)

Gary-only voting tie-breaker!! Woo hoo!!!

(Not really, but I got you scared didn't I?)

***

People were really fired up yesterday - who knew Girl Scout cookies brought out such strong emotions? ;)

Seriously though - there is always room to pick everything, and each other apart. Or you could be supportive... or you could be selectively supportive while picking selective other people apart. :)

It's always interesting to see how people react to the stress of the last part of the game. It has a tendency to strip back some layers in the process. What is it going to show about you? That's entirely up to you!

(Personally, I'm suspecting it will show you all cyborgs)

***

So get to it "We're not cyborgs!!" Your deadline is tonight!

Right now, I am kinda channeling Ed Gruberman. "Yeah yeah, patience. How long does that take?"

Like this.

I'm sure Gary will be happy to give me a boot to the head.

It does feel as though things have gotten less fun and more unfriendly. :(

People tend to get tense when the goal is in sight - and their expectations are either about to be realized (or dashed).

(For everyone but one person - dashed)

So, here's the thing - what can people who WANT it be to fun DO to bring people together?

That's always the question, and it's another one of those things that ends up being revealing. :)

No need to discriminate against cyborgs -- at least we're not hippies!

Speak for yourself. I'm both a hippie and a cyborg. :P

I had a long day yesterday and only skimmed the GR post, and now I'm curious as to this Girl Scout cookie business. I can't decide whether I need to go back to yesterday's GR, or whether Gary's just messing with us to see who's paying attention.

My initial post was about how I was volunteered to coordinate the orders for the Girl Scout troop, and my frustrations with it. :)

Honestly I think that Gary-only tiebreaking would be funny as Hell, but I'm sort of odd.

I also got back from a meeting whereupon I got Good News about the startup, so I'm inclined to be nice to everyone...for the moment. ;)

Cool quiz.

I just realised I remember who wrote certain paragraphs, which I usually never can because my memory is rubbish. Shows how awesome the writing in the comp is, it really sticks in your head.

Wow, I got 11 right despite the part where I fell into lurk mode shortly after leaving the competition proper.

Also:

Doing the silly little quiz made me realize just how much I don't know about my fellow Idolers, current or otherwise! Even with GR socialization and basically hanging out and reading each other all season long. So, let's share some random facts about each other!

lrig_rorrim trivia:
- I live in Wisconsin
- I'm a bicentennial baby
- My degree is in classical civilizations
- This is my second full season of Idol
- I have no kids

Your turn!

Random theun4givables trivia:

- I live in Delaware
- My degree is in ABA Psychology
- I did the "military spouse" thing for 4 years
- I competed in LJI S8 under the names thephantomq and armyandleg.
- I deleted both journals due to anon drama from another community; in fact, I switched names partway through the season and somehow made it 6-8 more weeks.
- ARMY were my married initials; it's just ARM, now. ;) This spawned a lot of jokes about how could my ex be in two branches of the military at the same time. (It still makes me giggle, to this day)
- I have a love/hate relationship with puns.
