Today is your deadline http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/974915.html and right now things are looking more like Week 5's massive bye-fest rather than the sweet sight of Week 6's redemption story. Hopefully you are just a bunch of slackers and the rest of the field will get there by tonight. (Honestly, you're a bunch of slackers regardless. Damn hippie slackers. Don't tell me you've been too busy interviewing for the job of Acting US Attorney General! You could have fit in an entry as well, it doesn't take that much time to use a rubber stamp!)

Last night Cynthia saw something online that made her go into a rage. Was it a story about the government? No.

Was it a story about something horrible that happened to a child? Nope.

Was it... no. Whatever you were about to ask, that wasn't it. UNLESS you were about to ask "Was it that meme with Kermit the Frog?" In which case - yes, that was it.

I know you've seen it - it usually has something cynical and snarky followed by "but that's none of my business" with a picture of Kermit drinking Lipton tea. I'm not entirely sure why Kermit is doing that. Was there a Muppets endorsement of Lipton at some point? Is this entire meme just a Lipton counter-ad campaign? I'm not sure.

But any cynical or snarky use of that beloved figure makes Cynthia completely see red.

For me? It's seeing people using Calvin (from Calvin and Hobbes) on their trucks. I don't care if he's peeing, or praying, or just standing there. Bill Watterson told you NOT to do it, and you are doing it. Which means you deserve to be shot in the face.*

(*Note - maybe not literally. Although, perhaps. That could just be an additional factor in the reasons it needs to happen.)

What seemingly simple thing makes YOU go into "irrational anger mode"?

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:


By now, I’m sure you’ve heard that I ended up turning down the offer to become the next Supreme Court Justice. There just wasn’t enough time to do that with everything else going on.

So, you’re stuck with me for now.

Which means I’m back to torturing you in true Idol fashion, with a poll!

Before we get to that though, we have a drop to announce. Goodbye to [livejournal.com profile] n8tastrophe - thanks for coming out this season. I hope we can see you in the Home Game! False alarm. Please mark him as a bye for this week.

strike>As sad as I am to have to lose someone to Real Life, I’m so pleased to see so many people fighting to stay in this season! That makes me happy… and to celebrate that happiness, we will be losing 4 contestants from Tribe 1!

(spoiler: there’s a sacrifice in there, so it’s 3 spots up for grabs and 1 going that we already know. /spoiler)

I celebrate in strange ways though.

YOU can celebrate though by taking the time to read, comment and vote for your favorites - and then tell a friend. Or two friends. Or 7 friends and a hamster. You don’t know what a hamster might like to read… YOU DON’T KNOW!!!!!!

Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, the poll will be closing Sunday, Feb 5th at 7pm EST

Good luck to everyone!
