1. Some people are liars. They tell other people that they are good singers. THEY LIE. Why do they lie? Because then they just give these people false hope. And false hope leads to... an American Idol audition. Dear Sweet Lord, just kill me. While some of the singers (the 16-yr-old twins-- WOW.) are actually very, very good... the majority of these people are bad. No, not bad... Awful. Atrocious. Abominable. Ghastly.
Eric (the one with the trashy grandma)... his music teacher told him he would go far in music. I'm really hoping that by "far," he/she only meant, "Go FAR away, so no one can hear you."
The Christina/Pink/Britney-wanna-be who had the same eye makeup as her W.T.* mother (who was wearing a mini-skirt? ewww... old, trashy moms should NOT wear mini-skirts!)--- she said her life is entertainment? Yeah, entertainment in a Gentlemen's Club. And I use the word, "gentlemen" very, very loosely. GGW** is just waiting for this one!
The Blue Moon girl? Just stop singing. Just stop. No... stop. STOP! Scotty don't! Go away now. No, don't start over. Oh... she started over. Again. Please. Just stop. Stop the insanity.
"I Shot the Sheriff" officer/patrolman-- it was like the old-time record players with a scratch that kept bumping him back to the same line over and over again. Painfully. "I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy-ey-i-ey-yay-eh." Repeat. Repeat. Lather, rinse, REPEAT. Eeek.
Oh, and Simon was exceptionally cruel tonight. What he told that poor kid about shaving and becoming a female impersonator? The guy wasn't THAT bad.
I don't know why I make myself watch this show. It's like a trainwreck. I. Can't. Stop. Watching. The. Horror. (say that again, but with a William Shatner/Captain Kirk voice... it's much more fun)
2. I just heard on the news that a woman in Tucson, AZ (? I think?) just gave birth to a baby. Why did this make the news? Because she didn't know she was pregnant. As in, until she was in the process of giving birth. Didn't know. Not a clue. She noticed that she gained some weight, and she felt a little funny the last few months. But she didn't notice anything "unusual." I'm stunned. Maybe it's because I've had two children. And let me just say for the record, YA KNOW. You can't stop eating. You are over-the-top with the rollercoaster emotions. Your boobs hurt. You have to use the potty... a lot. Oh, and the cute little munchkin inside you kicks the living shit out of every internal organ. Sometimes, you can even see the imprint of a little foot pressing into your skin (it's not like Alien-creepy... it's very cool). So, unless you weigh like, a GAZILLION pounds, it's literally impossible not to know. This lady was overweight, but not so much so that she wouldn't feel anything. I know this is not a new phenomenon. In fact, it happens quite often. I just want to know HOW. Not that I'll ever get pregnant again... just wanna know. I can't find a link anywhere for this... yet. I'll update when I do.
