This used to be a much bigger deal for me. But I haven't gone out to anything yet. I used to love just walking around in the mall or major store in the frenzy of the crowd. Most of the time I wouldn't even be buying anything. I just liked to people watch, to feel the energy coming off them.
Back when I was living on my own, a friend of mine would actually pay me to come with him to midnight sales and stand in line for him.
Last night and today? I've stayed home with my family. Which is an entirely different kind of people watching.
What have you been up to? How are you planning on spending your weekend?
I posted this in the Green Room yesterday, but as a comment, so it may have gotten lost in the shuffle:
If you are buying anything from Amazon this year - LJ Idol has an Amazon store. http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20 If you use that link to get to Amazon, it's an easy way of "giving back". More importantly though - the store has a lot of books and other projects featuring past and present LJ Idol contestants! If you want to support some of the other folks who have walked in these halls over the past 10 years, here is the chance to do so! Also, if there are anything I missed, or if the newbies have books available on Amazon, let me know and I'll add them to the store!
Of course, the way to "give back" right now is with your votes! Support the folks who want to see go further in the competition. Support the entries you enjoyed! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/953518.html Read, comment (who doesn't love getting comments?) and vote for your favorites!
I had my first LJ Idol dream last night. I guess that means the season is officially started!
