It's the last day for Real LJ Idol voting. Some of us got moved to tribes where we are less-well-known, and are more likely to suffer in the voting. We could use your votes in the polls, if you are so inclined: halfshellvenus, karmasoup, impoetry, and beldarzfixon.

My back has been really cranky lately, messing up my sleep. Last night, I had some Advil ready, and that helped. The night before... I was persistently uncomfortable, but not awake enough to realize that my back hurt worse than usual. Don't you hate that? Too tired to wake up enough to fix what's keeping you from sleeping!

I might go for a bike ride today, depending on how windy it gets. Remember my amnesia route? I haven't ridden that for months, namely because A) I remember it too well, and B) my remembering includes the 9-mile stretch in the middle that is slightly uphill on a semi-crappy surface and heads due North. I need a South wind (and energy) to ride that route, and this time of year it's all North winds. I used to have a route that accomodated North winds better, but they built a casino down that road, and I'm not taking the risk. o_O

Lauren has a Mock Trial competition today. She currently does the Pre-Trial, and two expert witnesses (one for each side). She's also the backup defense attorney, which gets awkward when her expert witness testimony comes up. ;) Today's competition is in the Sacramento County Courthouse, which is probably adding to her nerves. I understand that people feel that's a real honor, but it's like our rec-league basketball championships being held at the local NBA arena: it adds intimidation and disorientation onto competition jitters. I.e., it's potentially more negative than positive. Or is that just me?

Happy Thursday! I'm living for the weekend once again...

It's a slothlet!

Does that mean you're too lazy to do anything? Or just loading me up on the cute?

Please tell me I didn't misidentify this little guy. :0

It is a baby sloth- just for the cute. xo

They have such soft, round heads, and distinctive little noses.

As you might guess, they've been making a lot of appearances on splodefromcute. Who knew they were that irreistible? :)

Thank you, Dei!

Have you particpated in one of these yourself, back in the day? You probably have a broader skill set to bring to it than I do!

Haha. NO. Original fic is completely outside of my comfort zone. No way could I keep up with the rest of you. /o\

Outside of mine, too, which is part of why I took the plunge.

Didn't expect to write so much non-fiction, though!

I already voted, so yahooty! I took my second bye this week - two in a row! I was sick as a dog (as a sick dog, that is) and just couldn't do it. I hope when I get back in this week, readers haven't forgotten who I am. And that there's an inspiring topic.

I had you in my list there, until I saw you'd taken a "bye" for the week, because you got shuffled around, too.

Hope you're feeling better.

And I also hope there's an inspiring topic, because the last two have really hurt. o_O

You rock. But you already knew that. :)

Hee! Let's hope that helped-- I mentioned you and two other people on the "needs love" listing too, because all three of the fun entries I was looking at were dangerously lagging behind.

Let's hope Billy Wylde can continue to ride another day. *fingers crossed*
