Cook

OK, so I totally was certain David Cook was not going to win.

But very happy that he did.  I’m guessing it was a reverse psychology thing for a lot of people and I wasn’t the only one who voted merely for disagreeing with the judges.  Also nice to see Simon apologize to David C.

That’s all. Yes, kind of pathetic… I know.

Annoying Cheese

Wow. I had no idea the American Idol judges were all about cheese? Seriously?

Am I that out of touch with pop culture that I don’t understand why David Archuleta should beat David Cook? I need help with this one.

So first was Round 1 (HATED the stupid boxing references) – an original version of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” doesn’t beat just another version of “Don’t Let the Sun go Down On Me” Seriously. I’m pretty sure I enjoyed Justin Guarini’s version of it better. And for sure Clay Aiken would whoop David A’s butt singing that song!

Round 2 – OK, the song written for the idol. Of course any schmaltzy feel good song (the judge’s never like these song “choices” -like they have a choice!) is going to go to the boy with the face smooth enough to be a baby’s bottom! Definitely not for a guy with an electric guitar – well maybe Bryan Adams* could pull it off.

Round 3 – David Cook should win just for trying a different song!

Grrr…. I’m guessing David Archuleta is going to win, no matter that I sat and hit redial on my phone for about 10 minutes after the show was over. I’m also guessing, that this year most likely will be the last season in this household! I think I would have rather watched the Twins go up 9-0 than hear Randy Jackson say how David A could sing the phonebook! ugh.

Seriously, what did you think?  I’m so wondering why I don’t agree with the judges really at all tonight.

* Loved the reference in How I Met Your Mother this week to Bruce Springsteen being the American version of Bryan Adams! Ha!!

Catch Up

Hmmm… I should be in bed, but I haven’t blogged for days…

To get you caught up on life:

Friday: worked, did some quick shopping. Didn’t realize daycare needed an early pickup until they called, so felt guilty all evening thinking our daycare provider missed her only chance to see her son in a track meet this year.

Saturday: still felt guilty. Weighed in at Weight Watchers. Down 10.4 lbs! yeah!  My parents came up. My mom, Maria and I headed out to a very busy Mall of America to do some shopping.

Sunday: My first Mother’s Day. Maria woke up screaming at 3:30 am. I was up with her for an hour. Still don’t know what was wrong. I got up around 6:30 to go to the Race for the Cure with my mom. It was cold and windy and Maria was still asleep so we left her at home. This was a very good idea, as we were gone until well after noon.  She was going down for a nap when we got home.

Monday: Worked.

Tuesday: Worked. Watched American Idol – I am hoping David Archuleta will be the one to leave, but I think it will be Sayesha. I really only care about David Cook. I just find David Archuleta annoying.
