Green Room - Week 36 - Day 4

Today was a "Fair Day" for kids in the county school system, so they have the day off. So I took it off it as well, to "do something with the family".

That was the plan at least - only to find out that the "fun things" planned for the day was going to get their nails done, checking out a dance studio and homework. I was just going to hang out anyway... but was told "Go to work".

So here I am! :)

***

What did YOU have planned for this week and what ended up happening instead?

***

Btw - we crowned our newest Spirit of LJ Idol last night: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/835183.html

She received a special icon, and a choice of the following powers:


- Bring someone back into the game (as of Week 37 - and yes, you can pick someone eliminated in Week 36 as well)

- Immunity for yourself, from now until the Top 5. (you can use it to save yourself once between now and the Top 5.)

- Topsy Turvy - turn the poll upside down - the person with the most votes in that week goes home

- 1 bye for yourself (or a friend) to use between now and the Top 5

- The Save. Not an immunity, but an actual save. Someone is going home - you save them. No one goes in their place

What did she choose?

She is bringing someone back into the game (starting Week 37): So welcome back lrig_rorrim!

I'm sure that's not something she was expecting to be doing next week!

***

There is also a poll going on: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/835024.html There will be a couple people who will not be around to welcome her back into the fold. Who will those be? That's up to the voters to decide!

This is baffling and amazing and awesome and humbling and really really really neat and a whole bunch of other adjectives all at once.

~rolls up her sleeves~ Back to the word mines with me!

Also, massive kudos to kickthehobbit for picking one of the most selfless powers. That's just...really really awesome. I feel like it should be pointed out.

Heh. It wasn't really a choice at all. I saw the powers, knew the three-way tie had been upsetting for a lot of people, and saw a way to rectify that. That she happens to be one of my favorite writers didn't hurt anything, either. ;)

This is the scene where lrig_rorrim is defeated and kickthehobbit resurrects her with her tears. This is the epic story of crying your friends back into life!

Heh. When I got the email last night, the first thing I did was IM lrig_rorrim asking if she wanted to come back. As neat as the other powers were, she should have been Spirit of Idol, not me, and I feel like if she'd still been in, it would have gone to her. There was a little debate with her about doing the thing that would make it easier for me to make it til the Top 5—but it was basically a no-brainer, andI think if someone else had been given Spirit, they would have done it too. :D

I think you're right, or at least I hope so.

Thanks so much for making that choice! *hugs*

Immunity for yourself, from now until the Top 5.

Hey, I never got that choice in S8!

It would be hard to choose that one, though, knowing that lrig_rorrim could come back.

I'm so "yay" over that choice, you can't imagine!

Thank you, Jenn!

Yeah, I mean...immunity is tempting! Everyone wants to last, right? But the opportunity to right a wrong was too good to pass up. :)

On the other topic, I'm really sorry your family day turned into "We're froo-frooing, begone!" You have more patience than I if you would hang out while Cynthia and kidlet are getting their nails done. I don't have the patience to get my _own_ nails done!

Does "Fair Day" result in an actual carnival/fair happening at the schools later? Or does it mean something completely different?

I would have probably just stayed at home and watched Netflix! ;)

We have a County Fair that is going on. Kids get the day off school to attend. (kind of a throwback idea)

Bored now. Want new green room. ;)


Anyone want to play "share an image that's significant to you in some way"?

Well apparently I got all caught up in something and missed the boat on this! Congrats!
