You're the One I (don't) Want...

Are you watching "You're the One That I Want?" No? Well, you should be. Why? I dunno, maybe 'cause I said so... Or, maybe because it is as head-scratching puzzling as Idol is... The judges, in all their superbly-evident lack-of-all-wisdom, elected to 'save' Austin in the competition. Now, in his defense, the other guy (whose name always escapes me) sucked just as badly. Here is my problem with Austin: He is TOO 'professional.' How can that be? He knows all the 'right' moves, and it's obvious he has been taught HOW to dance, sing, act, etc. And that is the problem. He is too mechanical, too 'fake.' Look, he'd be great in a soap opera or in some other show, or maybe some other role in Grease, but he is no Danny.... Should Max take it all? I dunno. He doesn't... LOOK... like a Danny, ya know? But, he has certainly grown the most during the show....


If you were on "Deal or No Deal," at what point would you say, "Forget it, I'm playing the whole game?" For me, that point would come if I had only one big amount (more than $100,000) on the board. At that stage, really, what do you have to lose? Yeah, okay, you might go home with 5 bucks, but so what? I bet you'd have fun getting there. Of course, my rule-of-thumb is $200,000. If my offer is more than 200 grand, I'm outta there (well, unless all I have left are big amounts, by some freak miracle). After taxes, whatever is left of 200 grand will pay off enough of my stuff that I could actually start to SAVE money...


On the radio today, I heard about a woman who called the police when she woke to find a strange, naked man on her couch. Turns out the guy was drunk, broke into her house, stripped, found a blanket, and passed out. He was arrested for breaking in and indecent exposure. She told the cops to keep the blanket and couch for evidence as long as they wanted - she wouldn't be using it anytime soon, or ever again for that matter... :-)


The helicopter crash in Hawaii had a couple from Arkansas (Cabot) on their honeymoon... Turns out, the woman was the secretary for the law firm where Shan's cousin works... She had borrowed a book on Hawaii from Shan's cousin... Arkansas really is a small town - in both good and not-so-good ways....
