Green Room - Week 35 - Day 7

The poll is closing today, and promises to be more dramatic than calling a pass play at the 1-yard line with a minute left in your last chance to win the Super Bowl.

Or maybe it promises to contain more heartbreak than a Nationwide commercial.

One of those. Maybe both.

http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/831470.html is where you can find the entries - and this is your last chance to advocate for them!

Who will get into the Top 10? Who will be left outside the door? (Until the special power is released that will "restart the season from Week 1, Day 1"...damnit, I wasn't going to talk about that...)

That's entirely up to the voters! So, if you have a case to make for yourself, or your favorites - now would be a good time to do it!

Another meaningless Super Bowl gone by. Much more interesting is the vote for the Top 10. Which great writers will be left out?

Proud to say I voted, after many weeks of missing the poll.

I'm accomplishing all sorts of things today :)

If there really was a restart-the-season-from-scratch power, I would laugh and laugh and laugh. And then cry. Heh.

It would be interesting, though, to see how approaches would change - like, what would you do different then if you knew what you know now? (That... was a horrible sentence. I hope it made sense. I need to get caffeine and breakfast real soon now).

I've been crap about commenting this week, due to all kinds of real life upheaval happening (nothing bad - just change, which is A Thing all in itself which wears me out). Gonna try to fix that after aforementioned caffeine and breakfast, and hopefully will get a rec list in here then too. I feel like everyone really stepped up their game this week. The entries were pretty damn amazing.

Believe me, I've considered it. :)

Might be interesting to hand it to the Spirit of LJ Idol, Season 9. Just to see what they would do with it.

"You have the power to reset this season. You can use it any time between this week and the Top 5".

I have a feeling that votes would either go toward someone who would *never* use the power, if you liked everyone OR to someone who would - if you especially wanted your opponents to have mental breakdowns! ;)

But then the person who reset it would also have to start from scratch, so why would they use it?

Also what would starting from scratch even mean? I'm guessing at this point a lot of people would refuse to come back anyway, both out of deference to the current remaining contestants and because we're invested now, we want to see what happens. And we're also exhausted, remember LJI almost killed us, let's not forget that ;).

Good lord. If they restarted the season, I would probably throw my laptop out a window.

I knew you would kill someone if there was a season reset. :)

Nah, I'm with lrig_rirrom. I would probably have a nervous breakdown and start rocking and crying in a corner before I could do any real damage to the man pulling the puppet strings.

I would cry and cry and laugh. And then cry.

(A fairly similar reaction to finding out that I was having twins, when I think about it...)

Hope that The Change Thing resolves soon - I find change hard, too.

swirlsofblue is doing some "comment fic" thing: http://tvd-originals.livejournal.com/63871.html?view=103807#t103807

Not sure what a "comment fic" is - I suspect it's something commies do. But since a lot of you are commies - you might like it.

We DVR'd the Superbowl, and just watched the commercials and the halftime show. The halftime show was AWESOME! :)

Other than that, it's Monday and I need more caffeine!

I have read and voted in the poll and submitted my Jury votes. W00t.

The internet really needs to make up it's mind about that Half-Time show.

All of the posts I saw *during it* were making fun of it, and saying it was awful - but most of the posts I've seen this morning have been saying it was great.

It's as if there were more than one opinion and individuals had their own tastes. Which isn't how the internet is supposed to work! :P

Gary, I have a poll question. You mentioned that if two of the three contestants in the redemption tribe received immunity, you would not eliminate anyone from that tribe. If that happens, would you eliminate 3 people from the main tribe?

No. We would be at the Top 11.

Just a reminder:

If you edit your votes - LJ doesn't save votes. You will have to re-click the ones you want to support.

That seems to have happened last week, to someone's detriment. So make sure it doesn't happen to your favorites!!

Nervous about the votes, busy at work, and now regretting that I didn't watch at least the end of the Super Bowl for that epic "D'OH!" moment. :D

If you have time for a simple two-question poll, I'm asking for feedback on the working title for my work in progress:

I've read, commented, and voted. It was a good week.

I'm not looking at the poll, because I never look at the poll. But I would bet real money Redemption Island is looking pretty nuts right about now.

In other news, it has snowed up to my waist, and I am effectively trapped inside. Just as well. *sips tea*

The Green Room is so quiet today!

Both polls are tight.

So is the Jury vote.

Tonight is going to be "fun". (your definitions of fun may vary)

"restart the season from Week 1, Day 1"


There may have been maniacal laughter when I read that.
