Here is some randomness for your mid-week...

1. I did not fall off the face of the bloggy world. I just spent a few days at the Gulf of Mexico.

2. While my OCD tendencies might have calmed a little since I left the workforce, they are still there, as it took me a week to plan and prepare for a 4-day trip.

3. I realized last night that this is the first season of American Idol that I have not once voted in. I just didn't feel passionate about it. Am I outgrowing AI? I hope not.

4. We got caught up on the 24 season finale last night, and I was highly disappointed. I was glad to get some answers about Tony, so my extreme dislike for him is tempered somewhat, but everything else was a bit of a letdown.

5. I'm already getting sucked in to The Bachelorette. Did anyone else think Jillian is watching this now and is really creeped out by Tanner and his foot fetish? Ewwww!

6. I did something this weekend that I said I would never do: I read Twilight. I have thought it was a bit strange that grown women were swooning over a teenage book series about a hundred year old teenage vampire. I might have even made fun of it. But, y'all, it's a good book. I'll be reading the rest of the series.

7. Seeing as how I didn't post about AI for the last two weeks, here's my rundown. I think Danny's better off not winning because now he can make the kind of album that he should make. Not the kind of album that AI wants him to make.

8. I predict this will be the closest vote in American Idol history. I initially thought Adam had it wrapped up, but he did not do so hot last night. Kris had a few cringe moments too, but his songs, once again, showed what kind of artist he is. Beautifully.

9. Why are they still having these cheesy, inspirational, original (and I use that term loosely. All these songs are really interchangeable, no?) songs? They stink. And I love it that all the other judges obviously hated it, but couldn't pan it because Kara wrote it. And didn't she look all smug with her "cat that ate the canary" look on her face while they were singing it? I hate to be the one to break it to you, Kara, but it stinks.

10. I don't really have anything else to say, but I can't leave the list on an odd number. Darn that OCD!


  1. AMEN about the songs!! (point #9) I just do NOT GET IT - how can they not figure out how to have better stuff?!?!?

  2. I finished the last "Twilight" book last night. My favorites are in this order Book 1, 3, 4, and then 2. If you read 2, stick it out for 3--it's better. 2 was depressing! (I had a Facebook confessional where I admitted to reading it, even though I felt too old. A lot of 40-something women told me they loved it, and totally validated me.)

    p.s. Before you think I'm a stalker, I thought I'd mention I found you through Rachel's blog. I'm an Alabama Blogger, too. I'm adding your blog to my reading list! :)


Tell me what you think...go on, I can take it!
