Idle thoughts

Yeah, okay, so I was going to do the whole playon words and make the title, "Idol thoughts," but I figured that would lead you to believe I was going to go on some deep, meaningful tirade about "Idol..." And, while I may still do that, it is not really my plan.. :-)

Tonight's Idol showed the bad side of several folks: Chris Sligh, Sanjaya (of course!), and Chris R. Chris S. completely obliterated "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic." While he was singing, I kept saying, "He's just not.. getting there with the beat.." Low and behold, that's exactly what the 'pros' said. It was bad, and if the airheads that keep Sanjie around still do all their voting, then Chris S may find himself out of the contest... Speaking of Sanjie... Well, he sucked - from his stupid hair-do to the fact that HE CAN NOT SING. As for Chris R, I just don't 'get him' yet. Sometimes, I like his style, but for the most part, I don't seem him as 'contemporary' or 'modern.' He sings all over the place and I'm not sure much of it is actually ON KEY... Well, he's top ten, so more power to him....

As you can see, Sanjie got TWO no's this week from Shan. Her reason: The other two were bad, but Sanjaya is SO bad, it needs to be shown by saying it twice! :-)

Finally broke down and bought a new washer today. The other one was 15 years old and started leaking from somewhere I couldn't figure out. The hoses were dry, yes parts were rusted underneath... Rather than pay at least 100 bucks to have someone look at it, the money that would have been spent for that went into a new one. Turns out, 15 years is nearly 5 years longer than most washers are 'supposed' to last. Go figure... :-)


Have you seen commercials for the "TV Diamond Ring?" (http://www.tvdiamondring.com) Well, the premis is that they have this 'genuine' diamond ring, surrounded by imported authentic crystal. The ring comes with a certificate of authenticity. Umm, why would I need a COA for a ring!? Well, the price? 19.95... Yeap, 20 bucks... But, you can 'only' order 5 per caller... whatever... Guess that's what I get for watching late-night commercials, huh?


Well, it turns out my first PBS Teacherline class didn't get enough students to make, so I won't be facilitating my first online course just yet... That is a blessing and a curse all in one.... Maybe next time... :-)


Guess that's all for now.... I spared ya this time... :-)

  1. Sanjaya does SUCK!!! Amd who advised him to have that mock hawk? EE gads. I am not sure which Chris is which, but I do like the Chris that did the song by the Cure. But, then, I liked Austin for Danny On the one that I want........
    The diamond ring? Do you have any idea how small a 1/2 point diamond is? You need a magnifying glass to see it! Maybe even a microscope! And for $20 you can bet your a$$ it's not 14K gold!
