How is everyone doing with that?
I haven't said this before, but it's important. Or at least "important". Make sure to start reading as soon as you can. Don't wait for the poll. Because you're never going to have enough time to finish everything in a poll - something is going to come up. But if you give yourself that head-start, it will be easier.
I'll also give you the heads-up, for those who don't know, that the first poll will probably take me the longest to set up. I'm almost caught up with everything I need to do. But it's also Survivor night (I'm just saying!), and the first poll always takes the longest to put together because it's completely from scratch.
If you still need a little help and encouragement - the Work Room is still open: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/951867.html
Tomorrow is also the deadline to sign-up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/945807.html If you sign-up, and don't submit an entry for the week, that's OK. BUT you will be using one of the two "byes" that you have been given to start the game. There are some people who enjoy working without a net though!
So - other than post-election stuff - what news stories have you been following that other folks might have missed? Anything good/interesting happening out there?
