Green Room - Week 1 - Day 12

Tonight is looming, like a big looming thing threatening to eat some of us.

Because that's what is happening.

The polls close tonight: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/953518.html

and at the end of it, two of your fellow contestants will be eliminated. Maybe someone you enjoy. Maybe you.

So if you have any last minute recommendations, or want to give some love to anyone who doesn't seem to be getting a lot of it, this is the time to speak up!

For those who survive, the new topic goes up tonight as well. (Technically, if you don't - there's always the Home Game, but that doesn't sound as final as the idea that you will be dropped into a pit of acid!!)

In the past, I've seen some surprising results in the first couple of weeks, people that I've thought had "no business" being eliminated. But that's what can happen - there is so much noise, that it's easy for something, or someone, to get lost in it. It's part of that struggle, to find a way to break out of it and get noticed!

So make sure to do your part to get the word out on YOUR favorites! (or even, if you think you are in actual danger this week, to make the case for yourself!)

Morning all!
I got a new phone last week and I am switching from iPhone to Android, after six years as an iPhone user. I stayed up WAY too late last night setting up my Google Pixel, four hours sleep is not good.
Also, we have a new puppy at our house, a darling little stray that came to us over the holiday weekend, and having him around reminded me of being a new mom again. This morning he followed me into the bathroom, tried to get in the shower with me, got upset when he got wet, ate some hair, puked on the bathmat and then cried at the shower curtain until I got out and snuggled him. It made me really glad my kids are tweens now, lol!

I've had Android phones ever since I got a smartphone, but I've had my Google Pixel for about two weeks now, and I am loving it! I'd say it's a good reason to stay up late ;) I'd have set mine up sooner had I had decent wifi where I was the first weekend I had it. But I didn't, so I wasn't able to use it at all that entire weekend!

I've been enjoying reading everyone's entries! So nice to see old favorites and new faces!

I am guessing it's all quiet here because everyone is busy reading.

That's the only reason why I haven't gotten out the cattle prod yet.

YET.

It's my birthday today, and Gary hasn't kicked me yet. What's up with that? :P

As far as I can tell, I'm not too concerned about being voted out tonight, so that's good, because it would suck to be voted out on my birthday. I have to watch the movie Flight with Denzel Washington today because it's due back at the library today, and I've already renewed it once, but after I get through that, I'm hoping to spend some more time reading entries and voting. I'm going out tonight, just after the polls close, so that's probably good timing for that. I'll have to check the new topic on my way home so I can start thinking about ideas while I sleep. But then tomorrow I want to go to the comic book shop to get the latest issue of Saga. I figure I may as well since I bought the latest three issues earlier this month, after binging on the first 6 volumes from the library over the summer.

I was too busy with a ton of chores yesterday to comment in the green room, but my Thanksgiving break was a lot of fun. Went down to Universal Studios Hollywood with the family and went on a good number of rides there, watched two movies (Moana and Trolls), caught up with a friend who moved to Austin earlier this year, and had way more people come to the bar for my birthday drinks evening than I expected. And was amused when it was pointed out that only dudes showed up. I invited women, but none of them came. But probably being in improv means I have a predominantly male friend community anyway.

n8tastrophe and I have had such a busy few days. My gosh. I feel horrible that I haven't been able to comment much, but I HAVE been reading. I am so floored by how much good work there is this time around! This holiday has felt like a blur; it went from a very happy day of engagement to losing the family dog (ouch.. that one hurt) to dealing with having to see my Gram in a home instead of living with my parents. This has been a rough week.

It's the reading other people's comments that eats up my time. I need to read like...um...the wind?..today. No TV! No food! No phone calls. No nuthin but reading. Maybe some brief comments. But such good reads!

Long day yesterday; I worked late. Long day today; I started work early. Co worker's hub is in bad shape. Cancer sux, so I covered for her.

I read alllll the things. And voted! And commented on exactly zero - I feel a little bad about that, but well, introvert on a reading spree with limited time.

Some standout entries:
- hwango's entry made me smile, a lot. It was great, and definitely one of my favorites this time around.
- kathrynrose's entry really worked for this prompt, and conveyed a lot of complex emotions with very few words.
- team_jessie's entry was both heartfelt and funny as hell. Super recommended read.

There were loads of other great things, but those are the ones that stick at the top of my mind after my marathon reading spree. Congrats are due to everyone who got in their entries by the deadline! With holidays and all it was a challenge, I'm sure. <3

Definitely seconding hwango and team_jessie! team_jessie's in particular was one I could identify with.

Yes! I get this too! And then I get into a guilt spiral of "well you can't reply to this comment when you haven't even replied to all entries yet. . ." And it's just a mess.

Just wanted to say I have voted but haven't yet commented on some of your work. I will comment, I will. Because as those of you who know me know I love to comment. (Grins)
