A few words from clauderainsrm:
People share their stories. It’s what we do.
These days a lot of them are told, and shared, on the internet. But at the heart of it, they are still our Campfire Stories.
Which is fortunate, because that was the topic this week!
When they write the tale of this week in the history of LJ Idol, those brave souls who delve into our history remark on what an “interesting” time it was in the blogging world, and how many external factors came into play. More likely than not, they will note that this was one of the turning points on the road toward Gary gaining full control of the world and amassing his armies to sweep across all of space and time.
It all started here, with this week’s entries. So thank you for being a part of that!
Unfortunately, we had two drops, someone saved by a “gift bye” and a sacrifice.
The last two I will let you find on your own. But as for the first bit - we are saying goodbye to two dear friends of Idol. One of them because of running out of byes and the other is vanishing from these parts entirely.
Goodbye to eeyore_grrl and sinnamongirl.
And no, I didn’t realize until I just cut and pasted their names into that spot that there was a “theme”. ;)
Thank you so much for coming out for this season and helping to make it special. I hope we will continue to see you around to root for your favorites and to Home Game. (Well, one of you probably will, and I hope that the other finds a way to be comfortable doing that, because you will definitely be missed)
As for the rest of you, we have our usual business, with a not-so-usual twist. This Week is the first week of the Second Chancers joining the main competition, and all *10* of them have a special, one week, immunity. Which should make life a little more interesting…
We will be losing 3 contestants this time around!
So make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites to stick around!
The poll closes Friday April, 14th at 9pm EDT!
Good luck to everyone!
