Vote - Week 8

A few words from clauderainsrm:


LJ said that it was going down. But the quality of LJ Idol certainly isn’t!

I wonder how people are going to make their decision this week. I’m just glad that I don’t have to make the decision.

One person who will not be making the journey with us is bookishgeek, who had to drop this week. She will definitely be missed!

As for the rest of the contestants - we will be losing 2 people in the Friends (from the teams with the fewest average votes) .

We will also be losing 2 from the Rivals!

So make sure to get out there and support the entries you love - and tell people about them! It’s entirely up to you who will go forward, and who will not!

Read. Comment, and vote for your favorites!

The poll closes Monday, Feb 8th at 9pm EST.

Good luck to everyone!

True story.
At 6 PM, I was finishing up my piece for this week when my computer spontaneously rebooted for reasons I don't understand... and when the computer came back up my word processor's "auto-recovery" feature initially couldn't recreate the file. I thought I had completely lost several hours of work.

I was so frustrated that I damned near sent Gary a message saying I was taking a "bye" this week. However, before giving up I did an Internet search regarding where my word processor normally stores its "auto-save" files... and I was not only able to find the file but I discovered that it contained all my work up until the instant that my computer mysteriously rebooted on me. I don't know why my word processor claimed that it couldn't find it, but I was manually able to access it and continue from exactly where I had been interrupted.

So I was able to retrieve my work, apply one final "layer of polish" and post it by 7 PM... and the only reason why you folks will be able to read my piece this week is because I am *THAT* *GOOD* when it comes to dealing with computer problems.

Now pardon me while I go eat something, and maybe have a nervous breakdown...

HUGGGGggggggggg!!! That kind of stress sucks bigtime dude! You are patient, extremely patient, to hunt down missing data like that! Am so happy you didn't have to take a bye!

Hug again! Peace (and may life continue to be peaceful)~~~D

Re: True story.
Oh man, I'm so glad you figured it out! I would've had a serious "curl into the fetal position and cry" moment, then likely figured it out 2 hours too late.

Gary, Team LTTP's poll has an alphabetization problem. I meant to say something last week and didn't. It drives me a little nuts. I don't like that about me, but there you go.

So sorry that my teammate bookishgeek is dropping out. She got our team together, and I have so enjoyed reading her entries every week.

She's hella talented. I was sorry to see her go, too.

Still, you guys have got a great team together! :)

Thanks. All the credit goes to her. She made the contacts and worked to make it happen. Of course, I've always liked her writing, but I was tickled by how often our minds worked in similar ways with our approach to topics. I hope she does the home game.

I'm surprised I bloody finished this week. I was finishing up at one of my schools (passed my finals and practicals a couple hours ago, actually) and starting the semester at a different school and doing my clinicals and some days I was out of the house at 7 AM and back after midnight.

I miss my Playstation.

Things should calm down a lot for me now, though. Feel like I haven't been giving my Idol pieces enough time and attention.
