Well - first of all I want to say thanks! The encouragement from so many of you after my last post helped so much! I will not say I am completely out of the "concern" area - - but I have definately slowed down on my panic state... (Jen.... your daughter inherited my drama streak... so that is my payback:))
On to more important things.
I usually am not a huge fan of reality TV. Mainly because... well... it is not reality. At least it doesn't reflect ANYTHING that is happening in MY life! But maybe more of you guys have thousands of Americans calling your phone number to vote on whether or not you can make millions of dollars next year. I am not counting the myriads of politicians that want to be president next year...
On second thought...
Maybe THAT is the reality that the TV shows are based on.... Politics!
Back to the topic. Having said all of that... I am addicted to American Idol. I blame it on the overwhelming number of winners that have come from the Birmingham area... well... at least two of them... and no, they didn't sell very many cds afterwards - but YOU voted for them America!
Whoa - I am struggling to stay on topic today.
Anyway - I have not had the fortune of watching EVERY season of AI... however, I absolutely LOVE the first few weeks of the freak show! (It did get run in the ground a bit last year). Last night was NO disappointment. Ronnie has not always been so addicted to AI (not being a musician and all) - but last night even HE was laughing (he was reading the paper at the same time though, so who knows if he actually laughed at AI, or at something in the paper... I like to pretend he was watching AI).
The freaks DEFINATELY came out in Philly. The worst nightmare to me was the guy in the cape... or... maybe he is better known as the guy who took OFF his cape... AND his chest hair! If you didn't watch the show - this makes no sense... find it on youtube or something... words could NEVER do it justice. The stalker guy was just freaky, and the star wars chic??? WHOA!!!!
Ok... there was also some amazing talent. I LOVED the girl that is also a kickboxer, rides horses etc... I think she was from Oregon... auditioned with Amazing Grace. I also liked her shirt! she was just cute! The guy that had lsot so much weight seemed to be interesting too - - some of the singers with talent, I really think will not stand out in the crowd... too typical - but hey... this is American Idol right... anything can happen.
well - I hope you all have a wonderful day!
