Green Room - Week 40 - Day 7

It's the final day of Week 40 and everything is coming down to the wire. The poll: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/844574.html and the final Jury vote!

So make sure to get in your votes today!

Thus far, everything looks good vote-wise. Good job there. I know it's going to get tense in the final hours: But just remember (1) it's a community only poll, so you have to join the community in order to vote. (2) It's one physical body/one vote. (3) Encourage people to read and vote - absolutely. Just make sure you are doing both of those! Because if you're not, you're really cheating them out of some great reading!

***

As most of you know, last week our friend walkertxkitty went on to her next adventure. I set up a memorial thread/free topic so that if anyone felt like writing something and linking it. Maybe a piece about her and what she meant - or maybe just a story that you think she may have liked. http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/845386.html

I marked it "free topic" because it's one of those optional things that *anyone* can participate in. So I hope that you do!

***

And because I know some people need something "light" to get them commenting - what was your favorite thing about your weekend?

Nothing happening here.

Rain. Rain is nice, but I'm just grumpy as all hell for whatever reason.

And randomly, a little sad.

Sorry for the Debbie Downer.

Edit: Also, bizarrely first. Does anyone read these things anymore?

I'm reading. Just quiet, one thing and another. Also, busy. I had an astonishingly lazy weekend (sort of necessary after all that travel) and now I'm viewing the piles of stuff to do warily as they threaten to topple over and smush me.

Rain is nice. It'd just freeze up here, though.

Grumpy and sad are understandable. We're at the tail-end of winter, and it feels to me like the world is holding its breath for something. I just don't know what.

I wrote a small essay that I'd like some concrit on before I submit it. We settled my MIL into assisted living! YAY! So been busy. Have already placed my votes am doing a mountain of mom's paperwork that she had let lapse. Her dementia had been creeping on for longer than we suspected. There are pertinent papers everywhere! And the solicitation mail is unbelievable!

Anyhoo... can someone take a gander at this for me? I wrote it on the fly (for me anyway) Thanks in advance!

Congrats on getting your MIL settled! That's a big deal, and a whooole lot of work. :)

I read your essay. Very timely stuff! I have some thoughts on it, but I need to dash to the store and then I've got a meeting. What's your deadline for submission, and where are you going to submit it (because that'll make a difference with the kinds of feedback, too)?

*edited to fix a typo. I wurd real gud. Heh.

My favorite thing about my weekend was the part where I didn't leave the house. Heh. Had my writer's group over on Sunday night and fed them chocolate chip cookies while we tore each other's samples apart, played some games on Saturday, hid out and cuddled with Todd, and waved some toys on sticks at my cats. It was low key.

This week will be less low-key. There are a lot of protests planned here, around the police shooting of Tony Robinson, an unarmed black teenager. I'm trying to decide what part I can and should play in all that - I'm a white lady. I can show solidarity and support, but it's more important to make sure other people's voices are heard. That said, it's also a handy excuse to keep me away from crowds (which I hate) and uncomfortable situations, so I'm trying to make sure I'm doing the right things for the right reasons. It's not an easy thing.

I hope the protests go well, in whatever capacity you choose to participate. I just can't believe this shit keeps happening.

...I...

Don't remember my weekend all that well.

*blink*

I may or may not have spent most of it passed out. I'm a chronic insomniac, and once in awhile it catches up with you, I guess.

I did play Long Live The Queen for the first time, though, and was brutally murdered on the way to my friend's birthday party. Good game that, would recommend.

Hey Gary,

Just some clarification on the tribute to walkertxkitty since I'm thick and always need help. Are you hoping we'll write some stories about her family and adventures? Or about family and adventures with families in general? I'd love to write something for her.

Thank you for setting that up!
