I woke with a start, to find that there was a big storm happening and it was 2 am.
So I went back to sleep. I should have checked to make sure my alarm was on though, or maybe in the confusion I turned it off, because then I overslept and I ended up being late for work after all! (by about an hour)
It may have been more appropriate if I dreamed that I had closed a tab that should have remained open while I was compiling the results last night. That would have been even more eerie, because it would have been true. Not sure how. Not sure why. But I've been able to work it through that it's what happened.
I woke up and saw several people emailing me about it.
Before I went to bed, I saw someone commenting about not understanding the way teams worked, and the results and I thought - "I need to explain things again" for today's Green Room. But after seeing the other emails, I don't think there was a misunderstanding. I think I just made a mistake.
And when I make a mistake - I make things as right as I can.
Which means I'm completely nullifying the results.
The three of you are safe and are still in the competition!
lawchicky and yachiru - you are NOT in a sudden death runoff.
I will say though that with the bye-pooling happening (and the byes being spread out when those teams dissolve) and two immunities still floating about, there *could* be some surprising results in the coming weeks. There was a moment when I thought an immunity could shift this game on it's head. (it still might in the coming weeks)
Which is always exciting to see how moves earlier in the game end up impacting things in the future.
(it's also why I made it so that in Sudden Death competitions someone just couldn't take a bye and automatically eliminate their opponent. It happened once, and I felt badly about it, so I changed it so it couldn't happen again)
