Apparently we can vote for entries already!

But it doesn't really count, it's just a "test of the voting system" or what have you. (This is for therealljidol, by the way!)

If you think my intro post was worth voting for, you can vote here, I'm in the second poll. But given that it's in alphabetical order, I'm sure you would have figured that out. :)

ANYBODY CAN VOTE, as long as you have an lj, it's not just LJ Idol people!

ALSO, do you guys want me to let you know when new voting is available? (Presumably there will be voting for each topic, which will start to happen weekly VERY SOON.) Or will that just get endlessly annoying? Let me know! I don't want to bug you. Much. ;)

Heroes

I wanted to make a post on some of my heroes, and why I consider them heroes and stuff like that. But I think I just want to post this video that one of said heroes posted recently, that's got me bawling like a baby because of how powerfully it impacted me. All of this can be applied to life and not just the hoop.

LJ Idol - Topic 1 - Empty Gestures

"I'm sorry."

Am I only saying it to move forward, or do I really mean it? Do I even know?

"I'm sorry. I'm so sorry, I made a mistake, I'll try harder next time, I didn't mean it..."

What I'm really saying is, will you please just freaking realize I'm human and forgive me so I can try harder to not fuck up next time?

"I'm sorry. I really am. I'll make it up to you! I'll buy you dinner!"

I want you to ignore the fact that I am stupid more often than I'd like to be, and go back to thinking I'm awesome. I'd like us both to just pretend that I never make mistakes, and perhaps with this shared burger, you will never think of what I did to you again.

"I'm sorry. I wasn't thinking. I had a lot on my plate today. It's just one of those days."

It's not like you never mess up, either, you know. It's not like you're perfect. Why do we go around judging each other all the time when we both make so many mistakes it's impossible to count them all?

"I'm so, so, so, so sorry."

No, I'm not.
