I just saw a commercial that made my heart skip a beat with excitement. Was it for a great new restaurant? My favorite cleaning product? No and no. It was a reminder that we are soon going to be treated to that twice-or-thrice weekly roller coaster of ecstacy and agony, American Idol.
(The commercial itself is really quite spectacular. It has David Cook-LOVE him-remembering his rise to superstardom before he hits the stage. Seen it?).
For those of you who don't watch AI, you might as well move on to the next blog in your favorites list for now. For those of you who do know true entertainment when you see it, the commercial got me to thinkin. And you know how that can turn out.
The best part of being an AI fan is hashing over every detail of each episode with everyone you know. When I worked (remember those days?) Wednesday and Thursday mornings in the spring were almost completely devoted to AI discussions. If someone missed an episode, they just stayed home until noon.
So that I can still get my fix, I think I'll do a little AI discussion hosting right here on the blog. I'll post after each show (barring any unforseen circumstances that prevent me from watching the show)(like Ethan throwing the remote through the television) and those of you who watch can give your feedback. Whaddya think? Comment on this post if you think you'll join in the discussion--I'm not going to do it if it's just going to be me and my aunt Linda arguing over whether long hair on a guy is cute or girly. If you don't know me personally but have somehow managed to find redeeming value in reading my blog anyway, PLEASE join in--the more the merrier! Invite your friends! Tell your neighbors! This should be fun.
