My hair is kind of blonde


Dear American Idol,

What happened to you my dear American Idol? People tuned into you in your first season for the prospect of seeing the stupid and cocky who thought they were talented get told that they sucked. As we watched these poor souls get their hearts ripped out we, at the same time, were drawn in by the truly talented and the judges incessant squabbling.

Now, dear American Idol, you’re the one who needs to be told that you have no talent. You now spend entirely too long focusing on each individual contestant. We don’t need to watch the same person for 10 minutes. We get that they suck after about 30 seconds. Short and bad is funny, long and bad is just painful. You used to shut them up and tell them they sucked right away. Why do you let them go on and on now? You used to show us a decent mix of good and bad. For the last two nights, dear American Idol, you showed primarily bad and didn’t even show someone with talent (albeit a small talent) until a half an hour in. Why should I watch past the auditions if I am not drawn in by what’s to come next?

And please judges, stop being in such agreement all the time. What happened to your constant fighting over each and every contestant? And Simon, was that shirt you were wearing last night not only white, but patterned…and not skin tight?

In conclusion, dear American Idol, I am highly disappointed in your editing skills thus far this season and hope you are considering changing your ways back to that phenomenon we know and love.



p.s. this doesn’t mean I will stop watching you.

There is this woman who always makes the conductors bring down the handicap ramp for her to get on the train. She walks perfectly fine to the train and when the conductors aren’t around she will walk up herself. I always thought those ramps were for people in wheelchairs or who really had a hard time. Maybe tomorrow I will wait for them to take the ramp down for me 🙂

MattH – when I went to your blog today, an ad popped up to “Tickle the Fat Kid Till he Barfs” If you did you supposedly won 2 Ipods. I did not tickle the fat kid until he barfed but it made me laugh.

I got a cheese sandwich at lunch the other day and the guy forgot to put cheese on it. 🙁

Don’t forget that one of my things on my list this year is to get flowers from a boy this year… 🙂

I also told Scott he should get me a cake with a man jumping out of it 🙂

My hair is blonde…er…but not really.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    What exactly is a cheese sandwhich without cheese? Two pieces of bread? Not that I’m anti bread or anything…but still.

    the sandwich was bread, mayo, avacado, lettuce, tomato, and sprouts. But I don’t like lettuce, tomato, or sprouts on a sandwich (I don’t like the crunchy texture on a soft sandwich, but I will eat them in salads. So basically I had avacado and mayo on bread.
