Green Room - Week 0 - Day 4

The deadline for the Week 0, voluntary (as in not required) topic is tomorrow at 8pm EST!  http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/863082.html

The Sign-up sheet is also still open - http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/861191.html

I know I keep mentioning that, but I do it because it's important! Originally I was thinking 100-120 people would make this twist to the game work. Which means the floor on that is 100. *Could* it work with fewer? Maybe. But let's not find out!

I know that "LJ isn't what it used to be", but I also know that LJ Idol is worth people coming back to Livejournal!  I'd think that even if I wasn't the one in charge. :)

We have had some fantastic new entries into the fray over the past couple of days! We've gone from needing "40-something more people" to "20-something".  (there are a couple people who have paid and sent in their topics, but haven't posted a declaration yet!!!) So hopefully we can have that aspect locked down before Thanksgiving and be able to start strong on December 1st!

***

In the meantime - what's pissing off your corner of the internet today?

Nothing is pissing me off in my corner this morning, but yesterday, man...

Yeah. Yesterday was a bad day. And I'm glad that so far I haven't received another phone call home from my child's school.

Right now I am too busy enjoying actually building a world together with a good friend. :) I am bad at the actual worldbuilding part of writing, hah.

My corner of the Internet is largely pissed off by lack of refugee support. I am most pissed off by lack of food in my belly. Perhaps I need some perspective.

DAMMIT, G!!! I'm trying to NOT BE PISSED OFF.

*grumbles*

I've been doing a ton of monitor avoidance. And I don't mean the lizard.

How's you?

LJ is what you make it. It's just kind of disappointing to see some people only use it for Idol, and even more so to see others leave in favour of that Facebook drivel.

Hmm. As for the news, nothing moved my internet friends to strongly react recently, that's all the good new I need.

I only ever left LJ because so many others have abandoned it.

I was getting like no comments ever from usually having regular correspondence.

Facebook seems to be dying now too (at least for me)... Twitter seems to be the one spot I get traction.

What's the point of sharing thoughts to the world if the world doesn't react or prove they're still an audience?

I'm not pissed off by anything today, and I'm hoping it stays that way. :) I'm pretty lucky to have a lot of great people on my different friends lists that don't post reprehensible shit. I also don't read comment sections anywhere other than lj/The Toast (where they are heavily moderated), so that helps a lot, too. Lots of thoughtful discussion about current events, no racism or Islamophobia. I'm really happy about that.

I don't have a no tolerance policy for it, and I don't stop talking to people over posting stuff I don't agree with. But if we have a conversation about it and I discover that there's a fundamental disagreement, or they continue to post stuff reprehensible...I don't want anyone in my life that doesn't respect me or my family, and posting a lot of racist drivel tells me they don't.

The one and only time I reneged on this was with someone I didn't want to lose contact with, and they very quickly showed that I'd made the wrong choice in letting them back in (yay, speculation about how my family must have come here illegally, or I wouldn't be so sensitive about it!). So nowadays I just defriend and get on with my life, because it's too short to spend pissed off at content I can control seeing.

I know the world is full of problems. I'm not blind to that. But I don't need to be "friends" with terrible people.

Am I terrible people for giving you that notion about making Thanksgiving stuffing with KFC biscuits? Because I am not sorry.

My boyfriend got to see Mockingjay Part 2 during a special screening his company was invited to last night and I am jealous and BITTER, especially because I'M the one who got him into THGs in the first place!

A student sneezed on me this morning and I have been bathing in sanitizer all day.

On the bright side, I have a hot chocolate now and I'm super excited for the holidays!

I want to see that final installment badly, but have no one to go with. Hubby isn't comfotable going out anymore. MS is taking its toll. I'll just have to wait and get it through Prime.

May be getting a new laptop this weekend.  If I do, I'm in :) I haven't wanted to declare until I could make a commitment (says she whose work day starts now at 4am which means she's up 215am...)

I'm pissed off because I've been feeling ignored.

That's really all.

The internet probably is also what gave me my cold. Yes, the internet.

Mostly the being ignored thing.

I just want an IV drip of caffeine so I can think in a straight line. I really hate curtains today. The end.

Can I sign up for an iv too? My body wants to hibernate, but I need to be awake.

My workday is done, Friday is a light work day for me, and I'm getting ceviche for dinner tonight. The best part, though?

I WANT TO WRITE ALL THE THINGS.

I have the entry for Week 0 to write tonight, AND NaNo, which I'm hilariously behind on but still have hope of pulling off a win... somehow. And. AND. I found an online publishing house that is looking for a story for an anthology that I could write. Have started writing, for another anthology. Now I just need to finish that stinker.

My corner of the internet is pissed that my NaNo novel is moving at a glacial pace because my characters want to stand around and talk instead of moving the plot forward.

Oh wait, I'm avoiding the internet right now because it's full of depressing things so that's just me.

But the internet is also full of videos of animals riding Roombas.

Thank you little voice! Now I have something to do tonight!

Today has been mostly a good news day, so I'm not terribly pissed about anything yet.

We received an offer on the house we put on the market a week ago, and after the dancing involved, it looks like we will enter escrow soon.

Oh, and it's my birthday, so I've been recruiting after a two month hiatus from Facebook. ^_^

Hey, kids!
So, just to get it out of the way - I'm not going to be a participant this season. Just can't. Can't! :)

I did, however, want to say hello to those who might remember me, and tell all of you that I miss this sweet community of cool peeps. I hope you all have a blast! And, geez, I hope you all show your appreciation to Gary on the regular. This is a pretty impressive thing he's managed to do.

Love to all. Be well!!!!!
