Vote - Week 4 - Rivals

A few words from clauderainsrm:


When I set this week’s topics out, I could feel the shockwaves that went down the spines of the contestants. Literally. When they weren’t looking I implanted seismic readers into their spines so that it would register the full effect. Don’t worry, they are all “perfectly harmless”. Or at least that’s what I was told. There may be some side effects of the knock out drugs though. Sorry about that.

Anyway - I knew there was a lot of concern of “What will we do?”

The answer - if this week is any indication is “We will step up to the plate and deliver some amazing entries!”

If future weeks turn out this well, I will be sticking a pin in Week 4 and saying this was where things started getting interesting in this mini season.

As usual, we will be losing one person from the Friends poll and one from the Rivals.


I have no doubt that this is going to be a different decision - so make sure to take the time to read, comment and vote for your favorite entries! And tell your friends about them! This is definitely a good “tell your friends!” week. You’re doing them a favor by letting them know about all the talent on display at Idol!


Before we get to that though, we have to say goodbye to some friends, who have byed-out this week. They are:

bad_tibbers
calicoumbrella
ewok_626
rejeneration
wickedsin
wupuga

The polls will close Tuesday, Jan 12th at 9pm

Good luck to everyone!

Thank you to those who came out for this mini-season, even if you did end up bye-ing out in Week 4, that means you were still able to share a couple weeks worth of entries.

So I hope you will be able to write for the Home Game, and look for ways to get back into the game!

I'm especially grateful to those folks who were out of byes, but who continue to fight for their place in the game! I really appreciate it, and I know your readers do as well!

To be honest, I thought I was already out of the game... then I saw your post about being out of byes and I thought, huh...maybe I should do something this round.

The timing of the start of the game was just horrible for me, but I have more time now (obviously... since I managed to get something in).

Good Luck everyone!!

Unfortunately, as much fun as it was for the short time I was in, I'm going to have to bow out. More info here: http://peteyplane.livejournal.com/1845.html if anybody wanted that for some reason. Thanks for letting me be here, even for just a little while!

Gary - what's the deal with the red lines on the big poll? Every week since the beginning, the red lines on this poll have been the same length regardless of votes. The other polls are just fine. It's making me a little nuts.

Yeah, I know. Honestly, I'm not sure what's going on with that. I'll look into it though.

I notice that it is only on this page as well - if you open the poll separately, it displays just fine...

When I open the poll itself it's still messed up for me. I wonder if it's a browser thing. I'm on Firefox.

I'm using Safari. When I load the page into Chrome, it displays correctly!

NOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooo I thought this was due Monday!! I was just sitting down to write my entry!!!

I had such a perfect plan for this!! I was going to continue my travelogue, starting with where I withdraw 350,000 shillings from an ATM because Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania all use the shilling" as their currency, even though it was originally a "1 cent" denomination, and further musing how many of these countries only have their largest denomination bill of a value equivalent to about $5.

Then I was going to mention sitting in the hotel "lounge" room watching movies and work the "movies people hate" topic in.

Finally Uganda gives ample opportunity for me to work in how people think of violence and civil strife when they think of Uganda but all that is many years in the past now and the Lord's Resistance Army now only consists of about 250 ranchers I mean militants hiding in Congo. So that's the terrorism topic.

I was really looking foreward to once again addressing all the topics without interrupting the "business as usual" of my current narrative. ARGHH!!
