Hell I can't even remember what city they were in last night. Randy and Simon didn't even know and no one expects Paula to know where she is. I think she's going to be fun to watch this year. She found herself a boyfriend last night. A Latino man. Are these auditions over with yet? I've had enough and I'm ready for the small groups to argue and rehearse into the wee hours together.

Isn't it wonderful a new episode of House was on last night. It was a Christmas episode. I don't know where they were going with that but it was new. Perhaps bad timing or quite possibly the writer's strike might have affected the viewing date. I really wanted to put Christmas behind me, but you have to remember this is House we're talking about. He ripped down decorations and had a "Secret Santa" with his new team of doctors and he put only his name in the hat to pick. He put me in a great mood. I missed him. He screwed with his new teams heads, making them think they could still be fired. I'm happy with the new team and they can get rid of the old ones, except Foreman. Cameron and Chase are taking up space.
Okay that was a burp. Paula's trying to tell the biggest audience in the world that it was a hiccup, I don't think so. I can't believe they didn't edit that out.
Paula was late last night so Randy and Simon started the auditions. Simon was in a reasonably good mood. Paula finally strolled in and was visibly still feeling the effects from whatever she was doing the night before. And then she burped. Nice. Simon threw his papers up in the air and rolled his eyes. It was priceless. It's a very short video!

3 days, 8 hours and about 10 minutes to go!
And I responded, "That was before American Idol. Idol is much bigger than the President of the United States. The nation has its priorities you know."
While I was only joking around, I'm pretty sure I'm not totally off on this. I'd rather watch Idol. I will not watch another politician tell me how they are wasting my money. I will not voluntarily sit down in front of the TV and let someone lie to me. I will not watch Nancy Pelosi chomp on a piece of gum behind the President. And I have no desire to see half of the senate stand up and clap at one time and the other half another time.
Enough already. Let me take home more of what I earn. Let me defend myself. Leave me and my freedom alone. And for God sake if a terrorist has information on an attack on our country - beat it out of them.
Now back to our regularly scheduled blogging.

I tried so hard to get one of my boys to join the Drama Club in High School. It would be nice to go to a school function that isn’t sports related, not that there’s anything wrong with sports, I’d just like to see my boys expand their horizons a little bit. They all have such a wonderful sense of humor that I’d really like to see them on stage. Boy #3 is my last hope he still has two more years of High School left after this year and I think I’m getting to him!
Gluing macaroni on to a piece of construction paper is called Macrame`. True or False?
Did I mention that the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders were in full uniform? This guy drew a blank on the First Grade Art question. He had to get help from his cheerleader he picked to stand next to him. Fortunately for him, this cheerleader was fluent in the world of macaroni/construction paper artwork. That was a $2,000 dollar question.
I have to watch this game show once in a while, it's a TV bloggers dream.
Just in case you slept through Macrame` class the answer is - False
mac-ra-me` - coarse lace made as of cord knotted in designs
mac-a-ro-ni - pasta in the form of tubes, etc.

Although I have a jamb packed, fun filled Thursday evenings television schedule, I still plan on telling the husband Happy Valentine’s Day which is on a Thursday this year. I won’t get a present, it’s just not his style. When we were dating and he gave me a bowling bag for our first Valentine’s Day together, I knew I wasn’t dating Mr. Romance. Now if I were to give in to dreaming about Valentine’s Day presents it would be chocolate.
I have received gift baskets before and love giving them as presents too. So when I sign up for Overstock.com's Valentine's Day Game, I want to win a gift basket. It’s something the husband and I enjoy, opening a gift basket full of goodies. The Valentine’s Day contest at Overstock.com is called Game O Love. I would love to win a huge gift basket for Valentine’s Day! We could sit on the living room floor and inspect the contents of the basket, deciding who gets what, kick the kids out of the room and watch LOST.
Last night there were a lot of pissed off people at the auditions in Charleston. They thought they could sing, the rest of the world thought otherwise. So did Randy, Paula and Simon. There were several confrontations. This guy in the picture says Randy, Paula and Simon suck, he can sing, forget American Idol he's going to be The World Idol. Look out world here comes #5651something, something.
I hear American Idols ratings are down, I am getting a little tired of these auditions, so I can see why. It's getting old.

I thought the show was rather uneventful last night. I was busy going back and forth from the TV to the computer but I'm pretty sure I saw most of the episode, which thankfully was only an hour long. We did go from one guy last week saving his fingernails in a plastic zip lock bag to a guy that appears to never have cut his. House was on after but it was a repeat. Damn! I was all excited for a new House episode, we have to wait until next week.
Tonight the premier of Moment of Truth is on. Show of hands, who's going to watch this show? I've heard quite a few of the boys friends saying they can't wait to see it. I think I'm going to pass on this one. Asking people very personal questions for money? Potentially ruining families and marriages? Not for me.

When you pack your bags and leave for vacation there are certain expectations you have when you reach your destination. None of which include watching TV. But that is just what we did our first night in Niagara Falls. You see when you have boys, no matter what age, they must and I mean must because it’s in their DNA, must jump on the hotel beds. When they simultaneously stopped wrestling and Boy #3 lifted his arm in the air and looked at me in a panic, I knew we were screwed.
The husband and I try to plan our vacations without them now. Trusted Tours & Attractions can help us find discounts on sightseeing tours for two. Sign up for their Newsletter before January 31, 2008 and you can enter to their Win Handheld GPS drawing.
The arm swelled, we got ice, ordered a Pizza and watched National Treasure our first night in Niagara Falls. We found an over-priced ace bandage, wrapped him up and I fed him ibuprofen for three days while vacationing. He really wasn’t in much pain but I took him to the doctor when we got home. The doctor called me into the hallway to show me the x-ray and said, “He should be screaming in pain, his arm is completely broken, both bones.” Mommy’s tough little man.
Yep, I'm getting a little crabby waiting for some good television. Remember LOST starts Thursday, January 31. Hey! Did you know this year was a "leap year"? I just figured that out today.

So I keep my eyes open and I ask questions, on the message boards and on my blogs. One of my main questions is, if you have multiple blogs do you host them at the same place or spread them around? I know that it’s smart to register your domain name and host in different places. That is in case you have a problem with one of the companies.

Your hosts of the new show are Lex and Terry. They will also challenge you creative people out there. This is your chance to show off your filming talents. Some of their challenges include: Reenacting you favorite Movie scene, show your best tattoo, make a commercial, cross-dress challenge and there’s more categories.
I’m excited about YawpBox. Boy #3 is showing great interest in filming, he received a video camera for Christmas. And he just so happens to have a very goofy brother to perhaps help him meet some of these challenges presented by Lex and Terry.You have to register with the site, upload your video and other user will rate your submission. So you can find out pretty quick if you’re doing a good job on filming. So I’ll be passing this information on to Boy #3 and looking forward to the start of the show in March.

Anyway, my dad was in the hospital for three months, now I can’t go a day without washing my hair so I can never be hospitalized. Hospitals have what they call dry shampoo but it doesn’t work very well. My mom would wash dads hair with the stuff anyway, just imagine if we would have had Salon Grafix Spray Powder Shampoo, he would have been styling in that hospital bed.This coming week we can look forward to some new televisions shows and hopefully everyone will have clean hair. Except on LOST, they’re on a deserted island with a bunch of creepy people and limited supplies.

“No, no, no, it just explains how to get rid of your negative thoughts and feelings.”
“Do I sound negative?” This is me giving her a hard time. And I did, she rolled her eyes.
