Green Room - Week 2 - Day 1

If you went to bed early last night, you may have missed what happened, so here's your link recap:

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?

I've got a 3-day "vacation" this week. One day is a mandatory PTO, so our acting manager was kind enough to jog it with my 2 days off. It's really weird, though, having this much of a stretch of time off...other than hanging with The Boyz and sleeping AND WRITING MY ENTRY :P I'm at a loss as to what to do with myself simply because I usually don't have a lot of time off to develop something, y'know?

Gah, I hate feeling like this. The younger me would've slapped me-right-now for even mentioning it.

Not only first, but second and third as well! It's an Idol Trifecta. If this were a horse race, you could have won lots of money. But since it's Idol, you get three times the cookies. Congratulations!

Hey there! ( waves)🖐. Regular work day then Zumba at the Y tonight. Every day is a power through day till Xmas break. Watching the news about Gatlinberg, TN just breaks my heart. Been there twice. Especially the safety of all those wild and aquarium animals. That one photo going around of those baby bears gets to me.😢

Hi all! It's been one of "those" weeks. Just lots of little irritations but hopefully they have passed and the rest of the week will go well. Not much for excitement around these parts. Just the usual. Went to see Arrival last night. It was a strange movie: Aliens that looked like squid.
Hope all are well!

Dropped the ball...
Mad at myself but not surprised as life is rocky and insane as usual.

Thank you to everyone who sent me well-wishes yesterday! I feel good today : ). I even got my idol entry done. So fast... not first though!

Thanks for tagging me. Lesson learned -- write your entry within the first couple of days whilst it's still in your mind (like I did with the introduction). DO NOT mull it over in your head so much, perfecting each sentence, that you actually forget to write it down!! Like I did last week. And then remembered, with a shot of adrenaline, when I got into bed... ten minutes after the deadline had passed! Grrr!

I'm three days behind on just about everything.

I start the days with good energy and intentions, and shortly things just go to hell.

Temps have been swinging back and forth between the low 70s in the days and high 30s at night. And today I've been sneezing my head off.

Now I smell something burning, which really can't be good, but the cats are unconcerned, so it can't be that bad either, right?

This just in - My Pandora station is playing the theme song from the Gilmore Girls, and once again I weep because the new episodes are only available on Netflix.


(and because it's much easier to focus on TGG than Standing Rock or the latest cabinet announcements, which suck the hope from my marrow.)

No one has a Netflix account you can borrow temporarily??? I've never watched it while it aired, but I'm watching the first season right now and I like it. I think back then I only wanted to watch anime and nothing else. Missed out on some good shows!

I've decided that December 1st is going to be a personal REBOOT, so, I am looking forward to that!

NaNo
So - who "won" and who is "about to win" and who won by getting some extra time to sleep?

Reminder: the deadline is at 3pm this week instead of later.

Hmm. This means I need to actually pay attention to the deadline this week instead of habitual posting before I go to bed.

This week has been crummy because I'm sick. Everyone at work today asked me why I was at work while clearly sick. My answer: I don't know. I really don't know. *Stares of glaze-eyed into the distance*

Stay home, rest, plenty of fluids, and rest again. And feel better soon. All I have to give is virtual chicken soup, but you can have all of it. (Smile)

I am doing housework today, probably all day. Whoop-de-do. But first I'll just sit here fooling around and playing with my email.

Today is work. Tomorrow is the first which for me in accounting means I get really busy for several days while we close the previous month, but today is just making sure nothing obvious got missed in November.

Good luck fellow accounting minion! May your journals balance, your accruals be minimal and all your entries go in correctly the first time around.
