Green Room - Week 0 - Day 8

Good morning.

Catching up from "what happened in Idol on the weekend" - There were Results from the Newbies poll: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/950046.html as well as the starting of Voting for the Veterans (same link).

So if you missed that post, make sure you go back and check it out!

***

How was your weekend?

What do you have planned to make *this* week better than the last?

***

And just "for fun" (Note: MY fun, the only truly important kind) - who, on the Veterans do you *think* isn't getting the attention they deserve? (Since you can't see the votes, you don't know, but you suspect it and want more people to go check them out!)

***

and yes, Sign-ups are still open! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/945807.html

What's the opposite of a Safety Pin?

That's what I want to wear while I'm here at Idol!

A stabby pin. Someone needs to make Gary a stabby pin icon!

Twists and turns about already. :D

I'm glad you divided the introductions this way. I never would have managed to get through them all in one week. :)

Going into the city to join the protests for a few days.

I'll be crashing on the couch of my oldest friend, who I don't get to see all that often. Lord knows I wish it were under better circumstances, but it'll be good to spend time with them. Also get to know their partner better, as we've only met once before.

Before/after that? Just working and reading Idol, I think.

I hope everyone here is doing okay.

How much are you being paid?

I've heard that the protesters are just paid agitators. I'm thinking about getting into it as a side job. ;)

We are celebrating Children's day today in India :) So, Happy Children's Day to the child in each of you. Would be recommending to encourage yamyam_kat and kfp_rawr coz it's actually their day :D

Which is a good reminder for people - we do have a couple Minors who are contestants this season. Their parents are monitoring their accounts and everything they can/can not see and interact with. That said, when commenting on their LJs, just remember - you're not dealing fellow adults.

I spent this weekend binging the first six episodes of Westworld.
I also picked up the laundry and bought a bunch of tuna (alabcore only in water) for a $1 a can (usually $2.49 to $3 these days in NYC).

I need more attention. I crave attention. I seek attention!

I also need a clone to be able to read faster.

I need to watch last night's Westworld.

green room - week 0 - day 8
I second 'who are the munchicans?' I took the bike for a spin and spanned 250 miles approximately across high desert roads. It was a lovely day. Spent the rest of the day downloading the Action Cam images and learning about the GSP feature to backtrack my steps and create a simple record of the route I took. I may be uploading that soon.

If I don't get off of jury duty this week, I have failed.

yamyam_kat and kfp_rawr - both of them are 6 and their parents screen their comments before they see them.

But those are my exceptions to the rule of "Adults can solve their own problems" policy, for the obvious reason. :)

Hello GR! I'm getting ready to take The Boyz on their afternoon neighborhood ramble :)

I need to rake the backyard. I'm not looking forward to it. Why can't leaves just stay where they're supposed to all year round?

I had a pretty good weekend, despite the Steelers losing yet again.

Today wasn't that great though. I spent a few hours at the vet with my cat. Looks like she has a UTI. My poor pretty girl was so uncomfortable. Hopefully the antibiotics help.

When the vet brought her back after getting a urine sample, she was so mad at me. She sat with her back to me, staring at the wall. Pretty sure she was giving me the "cold shoulder."

Weekend went pretty well for me. I got to hang out with some very happy babies and some not-so-happy toddlers. The happy babies made up for the not-so-happy toddlers.

Happy babies are kind of awesome.

This week I'm working. That's about it. Maybe I'll throw in some grocery shopping so my dinner on Wednesday doesn't consist of me dipping pretzels into cream cheese again. ;)

So glad the FAQ suggested a spreadsheet. I laughed at first. Then I started opening tabs for veterans intros. HOLY #$%$ there are a lot of you!

So, being the obedient newbie I am, I started a spreadsheet.
