So I'm doing therealljidol this year, under the username winterberries. I've done it once before but this time I'm doing something different -- instead of personal essays, I'm posting one piece of short fiction a week. If you're interested in that, you're welcome to follow (and, of course, if you're not interested in that, you're welcome not to). After this week I'm just going to assume that anyone who is interested in this project will follow winterberries and that anyone who's not will not friend that journal, so I won't be posting updates about the project (I guess technically it's a competition but I expect to get kicked early because I don't think fiction does very well over there, so w/e). This one week, though, I am noting in this space that the poll to determine who continues on to next week is located here. (Although I have a suspicion that it's not going to determine shit because I think Gary is going to declare this an amnesty week... but maybe not. He may be pulling a Purloined Letter on us with all his "may be eliminated" crap.) I'd love to stay in for at least the first week, so, you know, if you feel like dropping winterberries a vote over in Tribe 8, it'd be appreciated.

And now I will never spam you about this again, promise. :)

I'm on the fence about the "may be eliminated" crap. On the one hand, I realize that Gary's riffing on The Amazing Race, where Phil Keoghan (sp?) used to say that the last team to check-in "WILL be eliminated," and instead changed it a while back to "MAY be eliminated."

On the other hand, with as many contestants that we have this season, I think it would be ridiculous to not eliminate folks at this stage of the game.

Either way, good luck, and feel free to toss a vote my way too!
