Green Room - Week 11 - Day 1

Welcome to Week 11!

Last night we had some results: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/898318.html

Some new topics: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/898794.html

and a Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/898968.html

Tonight is the deadline for the second (of four) weeks of the Second Chance Gauntlet: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/897827.html so if you, or someone you know, want a shot to get into this, now is the time!

***

Granted, there are still a couple installments of Second Chance Gauntlet that could end up turning everything upside down.

But right now, today, we are edging pretty close to the Top 40... which is just a little bit above the Top 30, when the bottom falls out of the teams completely and everyone is on their own.

How are you feeling right now? Where would you rank your chances of being a part of that Top 30?

Let the fun, frustration, panic and despair begin! Time to write another entry. I'm thinking about "innocuous," but who knows where I'll actually land.

So I can write an entry for week two Second Chance tonight, if I think I can pull something together, or wait for week 3, is that correct, Gary?

Yes. You can try to get back in any time between tonight and Week 4 of SCG.

Leaning toward Pourquoi Story, though I'm thinking that may be too popular this week.

I was planning on winning, so I hope my chances of hitting the Top 30 are good. ;-) But the team structure's caused a lot of surprises, so one bad week could send me packing.

Haha, that's awesome!

Does anyone else look at the topics week after week and think "I wonder if I suggested one of those?" Because I forgot I'd suggested any and can't find the list of topics I suggested. Lots of them sound like something I might suggest - at least one or two a week. This week, three look like they might be mine.

It's like sometimes I leave myself notes and find them six months later and recognize the handwriting but not the words.

Not with the topics, (although, kudos to this weeks suggesters, because I like most of them - shock and amazement).

I have done it with jotted bits of writing. It's weird to run across a well-worn tablet, and recognize my handwriting without any memory of writing the content, but it happens from time to time.

I'm thinking either Monkey's Paw or Pourquoi Story.

I don't know. I'll figure it out after I turn in grades.

What exactly is a pourquoi question? I know pourquoi is the formal why? In french, but seriously- is it as easy as a why question story? Not that it's easy , but you i'm sure you understand! :)

Google says a "pourquoi story" is a "why things are the way they are" kind of origin story. Like, "How the tiger got his stripes."

Because when I first read that, I thought What's a "why" story? Sounds like meta! :D

Do the words "idiot driver" ever appear on an accident report?

How am I feeling? Helpless and hopeless, as I don't have a clue as to what to write this week. I'm sorely tempted to take a Bye...

FYI
If you come back into the game (via "tag in" or Second Chance) you don't come in with any byes.

Bye the way...
I have a few queries :
1. Are we going to play as individuals when we reach Top 30?
2. Do we get to use the byes till top 20?
3. What happens to teams who have been pooling the byes? Do they distribute the byes among themselves when they turn individual? What if there are only 2 byes left for 4 people in the team?

Re: Bye the way...
1. Yes
2. Yes
3. a. Yes b. They would have to work out who gets them. If they can't come to a deal, I would have to intercede and solve that for them. (no one wants that)
