Green Room - Week 9 - Day 7

The poll is up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/983712.html

Second Chances sign ups are happening: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/981280.html

Please spread the word about both of these!
Once that Second Chance door closes, it closes... so hopefully everyone who wants to play *can*...


This morning I came up with what I think is going to be "the next step" of Idol. Not sure if it's a mini season or a regular season, or if what we know will morph... it was all in a dream. So who knows what it actually *is*. But I just wanted to let you know I was thinking about it, because I've had a few people tell me that they wanted to play "next season" and I haven't actually committed to that yet. We'll have to see what this idea becomes. :)

(and more importantly - how this season plays out! That's going to be a *huge* factor! )

Ooh, intrigue...

I apologize for not being around as often as I usually am. I'm dealing with some issues right now which are affecting stuff across the board, Idol included. Hopefully time with unwrinkle all of it.

I hope things work out for you soon.

Thanks :)

I've missed you, and also hope everything works out for you.
Feb. 23rd, 2017 06:46 pm (UTC)
Thanks :)

I'm not comfortable talking about stuff right now, especially in a *public* forum like the GR. Maybe in time I will, though.

And there is no reason you should. I am a great believer in never revealing more than you're comfortable sharing. Hugs

I've been a stranger too. Busy with work and continuing ed class. Also outside enjoying nice 60-70 degree weather this week.

Enjoy the sun!

The sun is out, but I'm stuck inside waiting for an Amazon delivery.

I awoke from a dream where I bought a puppy--a beagle!--in a thrift store. I stopped to ask the proprietress a question and out of the corner of my eye I see my puppy, pre-named Ruffles, being let, leashless, out the door. Next thing I am in the parking lot calling, "Ruffles, Ruffles, Ruffles!" No Ruffles. A Little black puppy came up in need of a belly rub, so I'm rubbing this puppy's belly while I'm calling for Ruffles.

By the way, I would never name a dog Ruffles.

Sorry, that's all I've got, but I would love to participate in another season of Idol.

That's funny!
As a potato chip hound, I would totally name a dog Ruffles, lol!
"Here is my setter, Ruffles and my chihuahua, Frito-Lay!
Feb. 23rd, 2017 06:59 pm (UTC)
LOL! I never thought of potato chips! I thought of frills. Now I've got the munchies, and I am thinking, Doritos, Cheezies, and a chocolate lab called Cadbury. And I have a serious case of the munchies. LOL!

One of my friends had a group of cats all named after candy. Her favorite was a gray and white kitten named Cadbury, but everyone called him Whitey.

We mostly always gave our pets human names. Though over the years we had a Fluffy (cat), a Tiger (cat) changed to Tigger because he took the first name too literally, a Frisky (dog) came from someone else, and a Rattler (dog) came from someone else. Oh, and there was a Teddy (dog) but I have known boys named Teddy so I don't think that counts.

I need more dreams of dogs. (Smile)

My grandma had a big white cat named Fluffy and my oldest sister had an orange Tiger.

The cats at my house are all named on a Bewitched theme. I'm about to change Adam's name to Mrs. Kravitz because he's always watching us through the (closed off) outside cat door.

LOL! Poor Adam! LOL!

" but I would love to participate in another season of Idol."

Anyone who feels similarly - just keep in mind that the better this season is, the more likely it is for a future season!

So get out and get as active as you can! Let me know what you are enjoying!

Tell your friends about it!

That's how these things happen, and continue to happen.

I love Idol even in the seasons where I haven't been able to participate.

This season I have had a lot going on but I'm reading and voting and commenting when I can manage.

I wouldn't name a dog Ruffles either. Naming pets after snack foods ("Ruffles have ridges") would have a sad unintended consequence. I would either be constantly hungry or surrounded by empty bags of potato chips.
Feb. 23rd, 2017 09:11 pm (UTC)
Just writing about naming pets after food makes me hungry!

My daughter left for a three day trip with her school chorus today - she's in 7th grade - the first time she has gone on a trip without parents - meep! That's more a nightmare...I was totally freaked to say goodbye this morning, but I know it's good for her.

PLUS this means my son gets to be an only child for a few days. He and I are already planning video game marathons, junk food dinners and some action movie watching Friday night, woohoo!
Feb. 23rd, 2017 07:10 pm (UTC)
Junk food dinners and action movies...I'll be right over! (Wink)
Feb. 23rd, 2017 07:43 pm (UTC)
We are gonna watch the third Star Trek movie on Friday night! Come on over - I'll get extra Fritos and dip!
Feb. 23rd, 2017 09:13 pm (UTC)
I better get my runners on! (Huge grin)
Feb. 23rd, 2017 07:39 pm (UTC)
Wow, three days. I think my first overnight trip with school was when I was in 10th grade.

Although that does sound like some awesome time with your son. :)

She auditioned for the annual statewide chorus competition and made it. There are 10 kids from her school that are going and four teachers. She and four other girls all have a suite to themselves- very swanky, lol! I'm just worried about her money situation. She's never really had to budget for anything and she has to pay for food for three days, so I was like "Don't spend it all in one place...seriously!"
Feb. 23rd, 2017 07:52 pm (UTC)
Aww, that's awesome. Good for her!
Feb. 23rd, 2017 09:28 pm (UTC)
Congratulations to your daughter! How wonderful! She must be so excited.
