Last night Dan went to play some board games, etc. with some of his new friends from work. I was kind of bummed out that I wouldn't be able to go, but thought it was really good that he's making friends already - one of us needs to have a social life.

Snagged this meme from Jen @ Our Daily Big Top - I'm pretty sure it has a couple of different questions making this sort of like brand new and not me killing time when I could be doing anything more productive... 8 Things I'm Looking Forward To: Going to the beach - this weekend I … Continue reading 8 Things: June 16th

Last night American Idol announced their Top 12 13 contestants. Those last few seconds of the show were a roller coaster of emotions for me. I went from, "WHAT HOW COULD YOU?" to "OH MY GOSH, HURRAY!" within milliseconds. Then I thought, "What does that say about poor Anoop? Should I be happy they couldn't … Continue reading American Idol Makes 13 A Lucky Number!
Last night was the last group of 12 performers who will make up 9 of the top 12 spots in this season's American Idol. Why is this so confusing? Anyway, yeah, apart from the Wild Card episode where I am under the impression that the judges will pick whoever they want to sing one more … Continue reading Idol: The Final Three, Except For Those Other Three
