Green Room - Week 2 - Weekend Edition

It's Saturday when this is going up - which means tomorrow (Sunday) at 3 pm EST is the deadline for your Week 2 Idol entries. http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/954961.html

Well, regardless of when this was going up, that would still be the deadline. But I wanted to give some context!

***

What's going on with your weekend?

So far mine has been running errands. I'm sure the rest will be "Idol related"/running more errands. If I sit for too long, I'm sure my weekend will be decided for me. ;)

Fiiiiirstttttt

I have such a headache rn and about 1000 words of my LJI entry and I'm not entirely pleased with them. I struggled a lot with this topic, tbh. And if I don't finish it before 10:30 tomorrow morning, it'll be interesting to see if I even get an entry in...

LJ's blocked at work. Well, partially. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, so whether I'd be able to finish/post/link back a post on one of the busiest weekends of the month at a bank, well...

We'll see what happens. xD

That's a bitch! It would make me nuts to not be able to get online when I wanted.

My husband has no internet at work, save for his phone. They want people to be more productive - I don't know why they think that helps (I say, as I type from MY desk at work, ha.)

It's cold and grey and rainy and perfect snuggle weather. I heated some frozen leftover turkey in some bbq sauce and had it with baked new potatoes. Tasted better than it sounds.

Sounds good to me. I'm drinking a protein shake at my desk for lunch, blargh!

I am working. This is the second weekend in a row. Usually I only have a weekend shift once a month but the schedule got a bit wonky due to some hirings/firings and it couldn't be avoided.

I started my day with an Elf on the Shelf Welcome Party - we did a storytime and crafts to welcome the library elf back. Now we will move him around the branch each morning. he gets up to some serious shenanigans!

Tonight I am taking the kiddos to see Santa and then afterward we are going to Bucca di Beppo where it is our Christmas tradition to sit in the kitchen to eat- where you get to watch the chefs - and devour too much Italian food and drink some Prosecco - me, not the kids, although I'll probably give them a sip as well.

Tomorrow is our American Girl Doll Holiday Tea. 55 little girls, darling dresses, cute dolls. We will drink fruity teas with our pinkies in the air, make doll tutus and beaded name bracelets for both girl and doll and decorate cupcakes. I am SO not a girly-girl but this is an adorable chance to pretend I am!

I have a great idea for my entry...I just have no idea when I'll find the time to write it!

Home. Bed. Rest. Sleep.

Otherwise, pretty good. Posted my entry yesterday, made two tiny adjustments this morning, and am getting a bit of a head start on the reading. Hope we don't have so many byes this week.

I recently discovered the magic of wearing an eye mask when I sleep so I had a glorious sleep and got out of bed around 9. Some french press coffee, some breakfast, and some writing for Idol. I scrapped the original idea I was thinking about all week because new inspiration struck. Also I ordered skin care stuff (Any skin care addicts here?).

Later I'll be meeting up with friends and tomorrow Boyfriend & I are doing brunch and a museum. It's definitely starting to feel like late fall here in Philly and I am already counting the days to summer.

Eye mask, noise-cancelling ear plugs, and warm socks is the magic trifecta.

I got my entry in super early because I knew I would busy all weekend at the Supernatural convention in San Francisco. Just got a few photo ops done, with a couple more today, and the main event with Jensen Ackles tomorrow. I'm too shy to say anything but thank you to them, but I'm glad I'll have the pictures, because chances are I won't pay for something like this again. I'm not part of the fandom community, I just love the show and hearing from the cast about it.

I've been traveling the world! I mean the World Showcase in Epcot.

I was happy for the wait for Soarin'. I started a rough draft of my entry while in line!

Seriously?

We didn't go today, but we do have passes!

If you had waited for Frozen, you could have been in line until the Weel 3 deadline! ;)

So much going on with my weekend, ugh. I have two major final school projects due next week for two of my most difficult uni classes. My dog has an eye infection so today was his second of MANY vet visits, and tonight is a yearly holiday party with a bunch of my karaoke friends.

It should be interesting to see what I actually get done in the next 36 hours, really.

I hope everyone else's weekends are lovely, and a lot less stressful than mine! ^-^

Zumba in the AM and my neighbor gave me two free tickets to Redsfest! Yay. I took my daughter, and we saw a few famous baseball ⚾️ players. Later we had spiced cider ( spiked too!) on the square! Fun!

ARGH! I was almost done with my entry and my computer randomly restarted itself and LJ didn't save my draft. I have to start all over!

Yeah, I forgot to save my Word document every once in a while this week, and lost about 20 minutes of work when my computer froze (it almost never does!) and the Word autosave did not do its job properly either for some reason (it should have saved the document every 10 minutes at least).

*commiserates*

Just saw Arrival at the movie theatre--gorgeous film and so affirming about the power of language!

We got a new car and I forgot about this week. Ugh. I'll get my entry done tonight.

I'm working as usual :p My husband heads back to his new out-of-state place where his job is...yay, no more paying hotel fees for him! He's getting the utilities turned on tomorrow.

My Boyz got into a fight yesterday. They're not adapting to Daddy coming and going very well, I think. Anyway, Oakley had a chunk taken out his face and forehead and he's been acting weird since, like he has to keep orienting himself. We're wondering if he suffered the canine equivalent of a concussion...?

SO's keeping an eye on him while I'm at work. If he's still acting that way when I return home, we have no choice but to take him to the emergency vet :(

I am sorry about Oakley. It is always scary when this happens to someone who cannot tell you what is wrong. Let's hope he gets better quickly.

Late comers club, ho!
I had only stolen moments to think about the entry during the week, and I did not feel too happy with the topic too.

So after over half a dozen false starts yesterday I was beginning to lean toward taking a bye (never a good thing so early in the season, not really because I might need it later but more because doing so plays tricks with my concentration and determination). And then I just went and wrote the entry start to finish barring minor correction in under half an hour this morning.


So I am now free to run errands and prepare little somethings for members of my philosophy club. See, this year, it was decided that the New Year tree at the philosophy school I have just joined will be decorated with wishes, however that may be, and I had this idea to make little origami boxes for wishes for all the members of my group. Something small and easy, and and at the same time handmade and unusual because I doubt others had the same crazy idea.

Well, I say easy. There is this one crucial fold in the box that is not obvious at first, haha.

Reading entries! Top of my to-do list!

Menfolk are installing a gutter today, over the front porch. I mean....I didn't mind walking through a sheet of water in the winter...but I suppose this will be drier? Hope the snow doesn't tear it off.
