Last Idol Requests?

Unfortunately, despite appealing to friends and getting the voting link out in numerous locations, it looks like I'm probably fated to be cut from LJ Idol tonight after 36 weeks of blood, sweat and tears (in my case, more like toddler drool on my shoulder, instant Starbucks coffee and laughter).

So I'm posting the link one final time to my FL in hopes that somebody who hasn't yet voted will be inspired to do so, or to signal boost it, perhaps:

You need to join the community before voting, which is easy by clicking on the "join community" link at the top of the page.

For much of the day, I'm going to be spending time with my family, as my brother, sister and I have gathered in Central Pennsylvania with my folks for a group vacation. I know I'll probably be killing my cell phone batteries refreshing the poll all day but am trying to adjust my thinking so that, if I don't get the 5-10 votes I need to stay safe, I can at least be prepared.

So here's my other question to you: what would you like to see in my good-bye post, should it come to that?

Thanks again to everyone who has supported me this season!

Voted. It does look like it's a close race!

Thank you so much! Not only is it close, but the order of the contestants has been swapping like crazy! If the vote had ended on Sunday, for example, I would have probably been safe.

I guess it gives new meaning to the old adage that the only poll that counts is the one on election day, right?

Don't forget that contestant-only and the Gatekeepers are going to figure into this too...it's not just the regular poll, so really, who knows what will happen?

:biting my nails in support:

True. I was operating under the belief that the lowest number of votes in each form of voting would be eliminated. But I guess there might be rules that Gary hasn't announced that could benefit me. We'll see!

Well, we will be losing one from the regular poll, one from the Gatekeepers, and one from the contestant/HGs write-in... I don't know which order Gary will take those in, but three people are going home regardless. And Alyce can't get immunity from the Jury because she's gotten it once already. *pouty*

It actually occurred to me today that, depending on which order he does the eliminations, I could go out in fifth place again, just like Season 5. But hey, so did Chris Daughtry on "American Idol." :)

Even if you go out in 6th or 7th place, that's way better than you did in season 5 because there were far more contestants this season!

And I love me some Chris Daughtry - he's done far better in his career than some of the winners have, IMO.

I want your goodbye post to be the final topic, dammit! I don't want this week to ruin my fantasy top three! *grumbles*

But I'll also take cute KFP pictures.

I can definitely do cute KFP pictures, if it comes to that. :)

Aside from someone else taking off my cause, though, I fear I'm done. I've pretty much exhausted all my resources at this point.

Thanks for the support!

I hope your poll numbers bounce up - I already voted for you!

I went home in a contestant-only vote, there wasn't anything I could do about it, since appealing to my Flist wouldn't have done any good. There's never a good week to go. *Hugs*

I keep thinking of the movie Flatliners, "Today is a good day to die." :)

Still don't k.ow how you were cut. I remember voting for you.

I wish you could've remembered others voting for me too, LOL!

Wouldn't it be great if you remember things and have them retroactively be true?

That's such an Idol-worthy idea for an entry!

Definitely!

I haven't seen Flatliners, but that line was TOTALLY pwned from Star Trek! It's a well-known Klingon saying. =)

Yep. They were science geeks. Wouldn't surprise me.

I voted. Had to join to vote, but since I've been following and voting for people all season it shouldn't be too bad. Thankfully, I figured out a setting that I don't get spammed by LJidol since that has always been the reason I never joined. I also read several of the other entries, but I loved the Otakon stuff just too much. Staff solidarity and all that.

I think something both funny and poignant would be awesome for a goodbye post. But I hope it doesn't come to that.

Thanks! Otakon FTW! Feel free to share the link with other Otapeeps.

*hugs*
