We lost our first contestants last night as the Results came in: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/954709.html
The new Topic went up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/954961.html
Which means there is also a new Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/955188.html
Going over to say goodbye in the Results thread is something that I would highly encourage people to do. I know it's not always the most comfortable thing, and people are, by nature, awkward. I also know that it's early and maybe you don't really know anyone yet. But, here's the thing - only one person is going to make it out of this without a "goodbye". Maybe that will be you. But the odds are against it. For me, it's kind of like encouraging folks to comment to each other's entries - because if you want people to comment on yours, you have to show the willingness to do the same.
I promised to post a reminder to the people who used a bye last week, so here it is: Hey guys. It's Gary. You know, THAT GUY.
I just wanted to remind you that the Week 2 topic is up now, and there is a deadline. You should really check that out. Because you've already used 1 bye. You only get 2. Once you use that up, you're out. I don't want to see you go out like that.
So I'm tagging you here, in hopes that either you will see it and go "OH yeah!" or someone likes you enough to reach out and remind you themselves: calliemajor, cheapxdate, dee_aar2, diaryofa_mom, dubheach, elbielievable, ellakite, emperor_smooth, ewok_626, feritatum. flipflop_diva, fodschwazzle, geekmomof2, gratitude1943, heatherenchantd, lapis_lazuli615, lespere, lupinlover, lyrical_liessss, m_malcontent, mirrorfortress, misfitmama17, mossmonday, muchtooarrogant, narniarose, nonhelema, rsn_studios, shanns_ljidol, slavezombie, sra33, superhappytime, tabloidscully, teresath, turned_in2_moon, turnerwolf, unmowngrass, violaconspiracy, witchwife and yuniebaby.
How is the "middle of the week" treating you?
