What chain restaurants do YOU think should be boycotted due to their treatment of FOOD? ;)
Speaking of Veterans, well, a different kind of veteran at least:
Remember to get me your votes for Week 0 of the Veterans poll by Thursday! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/950046.html
Under "Information you can use": I'm ready to make two announcements that I will now bury in a Green Room post. So hopefully you're paying attention. I'm not just putting it as a comment though, so that's good, right? ;)
(Seriously, I'll make an "official post" about it as a reminder, but I'm thinking about it now...)
You will have two byes this season, good between now and the Top 50.
That's two "free passes", where you can sit out and rest a week. Life happens, especially around the holidays. So there's two times you don't have to worry about it. Once you miss the third time though, you are automatically eliminated. There *is* a Patron level though where you can earn a "Bye to give someone else" though. (For those keeping track of such things)
Also - the Sign-Ups are still open: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/945807.html and that's tied into the bye situation. I WILL be closing them at the deadline to get your entries in for Week 1.
I can't say the actual date for that yet (obviously) but for those still trying to make up your mind, or those trying to get their friends to join in on the party, that is going to be the time to keep an eye on.
