Green Room - Break Week - Day 10

The break is almost over! And just in time, because I'm starting to go stir crazy over here, wanting to put my foot back on the gas!

There IS some Idol business going on right now though - with the Break Topics: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/961914.html You should definitely go check those out and show the people showing up some love and attention!

Since it's during Break time though, I can also acknowledge two people who have been assisting behind the scenes: For those who don't know eternal_ot has been doing a great job with our Twitter and Ello accounts in getting information out there about what's going on with Idol - and murielle stepped up and has been having fun with the Pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/ljidol/

Thank you to both of you!

And thanks to everyone else who has been getting out the word about what we have going on here. (or will have going again once the break is over)

First?!? Frist?!?

Eldest Niece's engagement party is tonight. What does one give as a present for an engagement party?

A coupon for 2 to a spa/massage business? His and her massages? Her and the Maid of Honor?

I was going to do the Break Topics but between work and my own stuff going on, I'm just not in the headspace for them :/

Good morning early birdies!

I'm still determined to write for the break prompts, but I still have to set up the new-to-me tower. Have laundry to do this morning, have to dash out for important things I forgot yesterday - why brain, why? - then the usual attempt at Sabbath prep. And then, set up computer and write!

I need to check out the work room!

Laundry room opens in ten minutes. I get to beathe for five! (Happy grin)

Thank you, Gary!

I am enjoying working around Twitter, thanks to the interactions there. For Ello I am still to find the pulse. Thanks for the mention, Gary :)

Dec. 30th, 2016 05:57 pm (UTC)
I think the pulse of Ello is all over the place. We do get things reposted by the official Ello account, so that's a good thing!

Hi all! Sorry I've been quiet of late! Between the holiday (which was nice) and getting mentally prepared to go into class to get a new guide dog, I've not been online as much as usual. I leave on Monday for The Seeing Eye and will be there until Jan. 19. I should be able to keep up with Idol though. (hopefully!) I hope all are well!
Dec. 30th, 2016 10:43 pm (UTC)

Missed you! (Big smile)

I hope when you get back you will tell us all about the process and the pup.

Hello from Texas! I've managed three of the four topics so far; hoping to get my possum in gear tonight, lol!
Dec. 30th, 2016 05:19 pm (UTC)
You're in the right state for it. :)

I just went and followed the LJ Pinterest, it looks both fun and useful.

I have today to myself (and work). Tomorrow friends are picking me up for a four hour drive to where we're doing NYE. I am looking forward to the gaming/eating/drinking but not the drive or the not having a quiet corner to retreat. Ah well, soon it'll be back to routine.
Dec. 30th, 2016 10:46 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad you liked it...if you think of anything please let me know. I took years to build up my personal pinterest page, it grew organically. This is new, exciting and not so much organic. (Smile)
Dec. 30th, 2016 04:42 pm (UTC)
Yay, I finished!

I wrote all the break week pieces and I think they're pretty damn good. I'll try and find time to read everyone elses now, but who knows what may come. It's almost the last day of the year.

2016 is ALMOST over everyone... ALMOST!
Dec. 30th, 2016 05:21 pm (UTC)
I don't even know what Ello is. Also I can't let myself be dragged back into the addiction that is Pinterest.

You kids get off my lawn! :)

I have two half-entries written. Heh.
Dec. 30th, 2016 05:55 pm (UTC)
I'm not entirely sure anyone knows what Ello is. :)

When it debuted it was going to be "the next Facebook". Obviously that didn't happen.

I'd set up an account, "just in case" - and there does seem to be some support from the Powers That Be over there for "reposting" our stuff (which are links back to here and other writing oriented material. So I figured it was a good enough place to keep playing in and seeing what could happen, since it's much more "writer/content oriented" than Facebook is.

Don't kick me, but I really appreciate having this break. There is simply so much going on at home and work during the holiday, it's been wonderful to not be freaking out about deadlines for Idol too. That said, I am ready for our next BIG topic - woohoo!
Dec. 31st, 2016 01:53 am (UTC)
*nods* Same. I feel this huge amount of guilt for not writing. I haven't even been able to look at the topics...but yes, am looking very forward to the next topic. And those who are writing definitely deserve an award of sorts for doing that x4 this week! Props!

I fully intended on doing one or two of those topics and then family flew in for the holidays and things just got chaotic.

Is it a bad thing that I'm glad they're gone now? Eh, probably.
Jan. 1st, 2017 12:44 am (UTC)
I got all four topics done - three of them are poems, but I really love them (especially Kummerspeck)!!
