It was a beautiful day…

Allow me to refer you back to March 21st… I know how to pick ’em…


Idols – Anyone got a coin???

26 May

It’s FINAL time!!!!!!!!!! 

Yes, I’m a little bit crazy. No, I didn’t take my meds this morning. Yes, I need some help. No I don’t what to choose…

For the first time in living memory I don’t know who I want to win American Idol.

Ironically, right at the audition phase, the first time we ever saw them, they were put together side-by-side in the same video-clip. And they have each respectively been my out-and-out favourite girl and guy since the very, very beginning. And now they are in the final together. Who do I want to win??

Lee. Crystal. Lee. Crystal. Lee. Crystal…. Someone bring me my crazy meds… I’m going slightly mad!!

Lee was my absolute favourite to win from the beginning. I always thought he was the best of the guys. Let’s face it, I was smitten since “Lips of an Angel”. But then Crystal came along and suddenly I switched sides and was all “chicks-rule”. But then Lee did “Beast of Burden” and I was putty in his hands again. Then Crystal sang about a “Midnight Train to Georgia” and bewitched me with her voice and made me cry and I was a devoted fan again. Then Lee did “The Boxer” (all sing along now… all lies and jest, still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest) and I crossed back over the divide. But then Crystal went and did “Me and Bobby McGee” and touched my soul and sang my heart again and I started biting my nails.

Then the conniving little suckers went and did “Falling Slowly” as a duet and that’s when I started going slightly mad…

Lee. Crystal. Lee. Crystal. Lee. Crystal. Lee. Crystal…

The final results show is live in the wee hours of tomorrow morning… who’s going to take the title?

I’m predicting is that it’s going to be the closest final vote in American Idol history.

When all is said and done, as much as I am bewitched by Crystal’s voice and incredible musicality… my traitorous female heart still gives a little skip at that shy, lopsided smile (see above). My jaded heart can always be seduced by a smile. So, my head screams Crystal and my heart whispers Lee. 

I think Lee will take it in the end. But I would really rather have it end in a tie.

Idea Vacuum

4 May

I have no bright ideas, no inspiration, no grand ideas I need to share. Just me. Plenty going on, just nothing to write about… hmmm… let’s see…

  • Winter is here. For the first time I am not jumping up and down with glee. For the first time, I have a feeling I am going to mourn summer a little bit. It feels a little strange. A little bit not me. If I wanted to get philosophical about it I would say that I’ve learnt how to be happy these last few months and I’ve associated the good feelings with the warmer weather… and I don’t want it to go away…? But maybe it’s just that summer feels nice and I’ll miss the sun.
  • I am so unbelievably ecstatic that Lost is back. Finally, I can feel my brain engaging when I sit in front of the tv. I am going to be devastated when it is over for good in a few months.
  • I read The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. Beautifully written. Evocative. Poetic. Epic. Couldn’t put it down. It made me want to get a dog. But, what the hell…?
  • I am now reading (all next to my bed), The Kite Runner, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Magician:Apprentice; Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse Series); and a few random Paulo Coelho books. I’m trying to decide which one to finish and I think I’ll go with a good old fantasy to get over Edgar Sawtelle.
  • I am SO thankful that I can now turn on the radio and hear a host of new songs. I am back in love with my itunes. (Not my ipod, mind you… we are STILL not communicating). But music is back on my radar and I am loving it.
  • While I’m on music: Crystal Bowersox rocks my socks, and Lee Dewyze is a close second. I am astounded that for the first time in living memory I am backing a girl and not one of my boys.
  • Dave is running the Comrades. I am a little bit worried, but also proud of him. 90km people.
  • Ashley should have won Survivor South Africa.
  • I have my Football Friday shirt. As does Adam. I hope you all do too. (37 days to go).
  • These made me laugh:

Gosh, darnit, I love my Idols! I’m really silly that way. You’ll have to indulge me. I apologise in advance!

Of course, my boy didn’t disappoint:

Oh, that voice. Oh, those lyrics. Oh, I love my boys!

But, hells bells. These girls are friggin AWESOME!

okay, I’ve said my bit.

These 3 rock my socks! (geddit? three… idolatry… idol-try… I’ll wait while you catch up….)

I do amuse myself!!

(oh, and my ovaries did a little jiggle when one of my old boys made a guest appearance. I’m still a cook-sista!!)

I am a sucker!

He, he… it’s Americal Idols again. And y’all know I love that show.

Although I love the girls this year (for a change), there are a few guys (of course) who rock my world.

Man, I love my boys… 🙂

Especially Mr. Lee DeWyze. Lips of an Angel. Man, I loved this performance. Of course, before the show was out, this was already in my itunes.

Last week, he did Fireflies (a song which has been in my itunes since July last year, long before it hit the charts)

I don’t think he’s hit his straps yet, and I hope he is around for a little longer… 🙂

I can’t wait to see what he does tonight. This boy is headed for big things…

I just love my boys!!
