Idol Tuesday and running flat out


Shan and I agree that Adam's screaming was way out of control. Of course, so was Danny's. Shan is not a fan of this kind of rock music, so she had a hard time with the songs. She said YES to Danny and Kris because she likes them and wants them to keep on going. For me, these were the songs I 'grew up' with and I know them well. I cannot stand Adam, though this was right up his alley... And someone stepped right on his alley-cat tail making him yell like that. Awful. Danny went the same route. Not good. I liked Kris' version of "Come Together," though I have to say the best version of that song goes to Michael Jackson in my book. And, to be honest, I don't even remember what Allison sang.

The duets were interesting, and Adam and Allison sounded so much a like that I could not tell who was the girl in the duo.

No "40 things..." tonight, folks! I have been basically running flat-out with work for a straight week. I am beginning to understand how my boss(es) feel now. I don't know how they do it. So far as I can tell, they work 7 days a week and at least 14 hours a day. I'd be dead.

I have come to realize that I have got to get more organized, though. Outlook has a 'tasks' feature that I have never used, but I think the only way for me to keep up with the different things I am asked to do is by using that feature. Too many things going at once means I usually have some thing (or things) slip through the cracks, which does not bode well for remaining gainfully employed! So, one of my goals for Wednesday is to put everything I have due into tasks so I can keep track of things. And, hopefully, that will help me cut down on things falling through.

On the plus side, we opened bids for the new building the city is going to build and lease to us! We (LOL, yeah, like I have anything to do with it!) did not make any final decisions, but it was very exciting to see all the bids we got - I think it ended up being close to 20! That's pretty major, and you can tell the economy is affecting a LOT of people.

The rest of the week is going to full, too! I am going to a statewide technology meeting hosted by the state dept of information technology, then spend the night in 'the rock' and on Friday help out with a training until noon. At noon, I'll head back home and then serve as chaperone for a group of kids enjoying their reward for earning reading points! I'll talk more about that after it happens!

Of course, there will be more Idol commentary tomorrow when we see who gets the boot. I'm guessing Allison.... or maybe Danny, though I'd love to see Adam get kicked to the curb.
