Vote - Week 3

I had a last minute change of plans.

Why? Because Cynthia suggested it.

I've heard worse reasons.

I had the polls ready to go, and two more were going to leave us.

But she said that the people who took the time to get their entries in over Christmas deserved a break.

I was prepared to put you through the ringer, but her good nature has corrupted me!

So - there you go, you get a reprieve.

The only people leaving us this week are those from drops and bye-outs.

They are:

Drops
beeker121
gratefuladdict
shanns_ljidol
streetnights
strryeyedgrrl

Bye-out


deza
fourzoas
kittenboo
labelleizzy
locknkey
maerhys
sra33

Goodbye to those leaving us. Some of my favorite writers - and people - are on the list this time. So I certainly hope they take advantage of the chance to get back into the fray when a second chance rolls around!

On the other hand, there is still a reason for you to read, comment and vote for your favorites! Yes, I said vote!

Just go to http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/874412.html to check out the entries and then send me a list of your 5 favorite entries!

The two with the most votes (one from the Friends and one from the Rivals) will be given an immunity that they can use between now and the Top 30!

The deadline to send your votes to me at clauderainsrm@gmail.com is Monday Jan 4th at 7pm EST!

Have fun!

Thank you.

Unlike others, this 'week' was a combination of worsts for me: several topics + topics in languages I don't speak + too much time. It is all bizarrely counterproductive.

Thanks Gary & Cynthia.

I am seeing *WAY* too many talented Idolers on the "Drop" and "Bye-Out" lists...

What a fascinating twist to the plot! Oh yes. Thank you for pulling this out of the hat!
And Thanks YES for giving us until the 4th to send in our favorites list.

And can we vote for ourselves in that top 5? (because it wasn't clear and, well, who wouldn't, if it's okay to do so?)

I would hazard the guess that you can. Looks like it isn't contestant only either.

Darn .... I am so upset that I was not able to put in my entry on time and had to use both my byes. And then this twist ... :(

And the wierder twist was that I finished my entry just a couple of minutes before closing time. I hope the bad luck stays put in 2015 and does not move ahead to 2016.

Putting a link to my entry here ... Would appreciate comments and feedbacks ... just to soothe my upset soul.

What a kind thing to do for everyone. So sorry to lose so many people this time around. I'll probably have time to read everything after New Years.

Thanks to Cynthia!

I do have a question for our overlord… Does the head-to-head between myself and spydielives get moved to the next vote?

Nope. She took a bye, which means you both are safe.

You will be moved back into the main pack.

Damn! And I had to take a bye. Nothing was inspiring me at all on these topics.

Sweet! No pressure to write again until the New year, AND not being voted out because of the massive amount of byes! I might even have time to email my top 5! Thanks Cynthia and Gary!

♥ ♥ ♥

I was sitting at work the day after deadline and realized what I had done. It wasn't until now that I logged in to say anything.

The holidays just beat the crap out of me and then some! Those of you that are friends with me, I'm writing up my traditional annual post of annual-ness, but very soon will be a huge post of doom that has been what I've been dealing with for the past few weeks.

I know I've been more of a shadow than anything, so I'm probably not very missed. But I am sorry to be out so soon with not a single entry to my name this season.

I love you all, I really do. I'll be in the commenting game as soon as I can get back into a headspace that isn't full of negativity. ♥
