Green Room- Week 0 - Day 5

Good morning. I'm tapping this out in my phone right now because I have the day off and I'm already "out and about". Happy Veterans Day to those of you in the US.

There's a poll that was posted last night. Someone please post a link to it in the comments. There are no veterans on it. So I guess it's "Happy Newbies Day" here at Idol!

Make sure to check it out, and show some love to your favorites in the form of comments and votes! (Autocorrect turned votes I go bites. Do not give the newbies "bites", unless requested)

Have a great Friday!

This is exciting. I like the idea of an advantage. (I hope it's a better one than the latest "Survivor" advantage!)

You can steal items from another contestant's house. Like their TV? Their dog? Just let me know before they leave the challenge and our team will break in and get it for you!

If anyone steals my cat, there will be problems. But, if someone wants to steal our crappy stove, I might give directions.

Please, steal my cat - or maybe a couple of them. I promise to look the other way...
Nov. 11th, 2016 10:51 pm (UTC)

I have a few that could be stolen as well. ;)

Steal my new washer, please!!!
I hates it!!!

Welcome Newbies!
They are all so fresh and shiny!

*plumps the pillows*

Looking forward to meeting our new inductees, reading up on old friends and writing my (grizzled, Idol-scarred) vet's intro myself! I'm getting a bit of a late start.

Hey there-
Can I still post for this week or should I just scrub it until next week? Things kinda got away from me due to life and such.

I'll allow veterans to keep posting. Consider it an extended deadline until the newbie poll closes.
Nov. 11th, 2016 03:29 pm (UTC)
Glad to hear that!

O frabjous day!

I started yesterday decidedly positive, and after navigating the tides of rage and grief, I tried to post something meaningful. All I could think of was the prayer of St Francis, so I posted part of that on FB and just gave up on the internet for the day.

This to say, "The election ate my Idol entry." Glad it was optional.

I love just having the newbs on this poll.

I'm having iced coffee. Anybody want?
Nov. 12th, 2016 02:46 am (UTC)
I could totally use some iced coffee. But I shouldn't, cause I should sleep soon. I think this week ate a lot of our heads.
Nov. 11th, 2016 04:21 pm (UTC)
**brings in fresh pot of coffee**
Uhhh, Gary? You should have posted this sooner...I kinda already went and bit some of the newbies yesterday...
**hangs head in shame**
**meek voice**
Sorry, newbies...

There's a first aid kit in the GR pantry. :)

I am ecstatic to report that I HAVE TWO DAYS OFF NEXT WEEK!!!

(and the world just stopped dead in its tracks)

Er, never mind. Carry on :)
Nov. 11th, 2016 10:53 pm (UTC)

Yay two days off.

Nov. 11th, 2016 11:19 pm (UTC)
Yay! Enjoy them!

Gary and other interested parties

This is furzicle. Somehow the livejournalverse has seen fit to think that I have deleted my journal. I have been able to post one thing (simply an X) but am not being successful at posting otherwise.

Does anyone have any advice? Here's the story:
I was logged in as furzicle. I logged out and, merely as an experiment, created a new account. Because it was simply an experiment, I then deleted the new account. Now I find that the new account is deleted but I'm not able to open up the furzicle account. Of course the real panic is if somehow furzicle itself was deleted.

Re: Difficulties
This appears to be posting as furzicle...

Re: Difficulties
Yes, it's weird. But you wouldn't believe how hard it was to find a way to do that.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."

Today is Armistice Day, and as I say to my cadets (in an inner-city squadron, where many of them are neither white nor British), we remember everyone who has fallen in war, from all nations, religions and backgrounds.

I do not know your counties, and I do not know your traditions - but if you have a minute to give, then take a moment of silence to remember those who are not here tonight.

Up all night, busy all day, out all day tomorrow. I will read. I will vote, and if I haven't welcomed all our new writers...welcome! Welcome! Welcome! (Big smile!)
