Green Room - Week 42 - Day 1

Happy St Patrick's Day! What could be more "St Patricks Day" than a GREEN room?

Or maybe it's UnHappy Day After the Results: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/847519.html depending on your mood.

At this point, everyone has fans and supporters - and anyone leaving is going to be rough - and everyone is hoping that it's going to be rougher for people they *aren't* backing! :)

Which is normal. People get emotionally attached and everyone has their own bias.

MY bias is that we have a great season and a winner I can point to and say "They did a great job!", as well as someone who is willing to email with me and talk me off a ledge or two. :)

I want someone who is going to be supportive of Idol in the future.

I think all 4 of the remaining contestants are people who will be that.

(Heck, I think any of the Top 20 would have been good picks. But the voters have been making some tough decisions over the last few weeks, that I'll be honest - I'm glad I didn't have to make those calls!)

There's one more topic between now and the end! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/847866.html

I just put up a Home Game thread, so if anyone wants to link their own pieces - they can! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/847888.html

The great joeymichaels has just posted a tribute entry for the walkertxkitty memorial thread: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/845386.html You should definitely check it out, and add one of your own.


and yes, Kristin has continued to win, so check her out again on Jeopardy tonight! It's always thrilling to see someone you know do well!

(btw - tomorrow is our 1,600th Green Room! Who is bringing the cake?)

This GR has been up for an hour and I'm first? WTF?

Majorly bummed that lrig_rorrim is out. :(

And why have we not had a hell week?

I know.

They have been picking up in the afternoon. But usually only if someone says something controversial. Don't worry, I'm sure someone will. ;)

Perhaps everyone went on ahead to the next Green Room once they heard there might be cake!

It's quiet. Too quiet. Someone must be plotting something somewhere. (At least, I hope they are. Good stories have plots.)

I was wondering why there wasn't a hell week, too. Maybe the finals will be hell week!

Well, I was hoping to Home Game this week, but a 24-hour turnaround on a story? Not without it meaning something!

Heck, those quick-fire stories might have been my doom. I spent energy on them and didn't win immunity once, so while you can't help hedging your bets by trying... I think they did me more harm than good!

I'm trying not to think about cake. There are cupcakes in the snack cube at work, but they're vanilla, so I can overlook them. OTOH, I put my lunch in a different fridge at least every other day to try to avoid the allure of the snack cube. Damn my weakness!
Mar. 17th, 2015 06:28 pm (UTC)
I can overlook vanilla too, unless they have chocolate frosting... Nom nom nom!

Ah, but the benefits of home gaming means you don't have to have the same deadline as the contestants! You can post after the poll goes up!

we had chocolate cupcakes with mintish frosting (well, it was green, anyway) at work. i had one and then later i had half of another one. they were good.

now you're thinking about cake. :D because i'm thinking about cake, and i don't want to be the only one.

1600 - wow!! I will bring cake, or at least a cake icon.

I baked a loaf of Irish Soda Bread and brought it to work to share with my coworkers - yum!
Mar. 17th, 2015 06:51 pm (UTC)
Did someone say cake?
Mar. 17th, 2015 07:43 pm (UTC)
I think we know part of the summoning ritual for kizzies now. Caaaaaake. ;)

What kind of cake do you think the 1600th GR should have?
Mar. 17th, 2015 08:32 pm (UTC)
I haven't had a break with clients all day and I won't be home til 8pm. I have no topic. Ack!!
Mar. 17th, 2015 10:40 pm (UTC)
I think your topic should be cake... (laughing) :)

I wish I'd been able to write something a little more coherent for walkertxkitty, but I'm glad to be able to contribute something.
