Sorry this is getting up late - I had a surprise anniversary dinner date! We ended up going to a place that I’ve been wanting to eat at since it opened a few years ago. I went in with high expectations, and if anything, the food exceeded them!
Which is far different from when I got home tonight. My expectation was that I was going to see 21 entries in the topic thread. Instead, I saw that there was a drop and someone else who missed the deadline. So I went to the spreadsheet and realized that when the byes were distributed out at the end of the teams - as well as a “whoever needs it gift bye” that had been left unclaimed, so they both ended up with one!
So congratulations encrefloue and witchwife, you are still in the hunt!
Which, considering how much it would suck to see two people that I like a great deal go out like that - this close the end - and this being the final week to use those byes - that improved what was already a good night. I'd hate for anyone to have that happen to them. Everyone going forward though no longer has that safety net, so please don't make me eliminate any of you because you've missed the deadline!
You? You’re not so lucky.
You are, but you’re not…. You get to read some great entries. That’s the plus.
The minus is that the voters are about to send two contestants into the Home Game.
I’ve said it before - and I’ll say it every week until people actually listen: Your favorites need your love, support, comments - and votes. So if there is someone who has written something this week that makes you go “Oh hell no - they need to stay! I want to read more!” you need to make sure they survive another week. Vote for them and spread the word that Idol is where people need to be!
The poll closes Monday, April 11th at 9pm EDT
Good luck to everyone!
