6 Days Til Court and American Idol Trivia!

Thanks for all your comments and support readers. I had over 400 hits in one day, the most I've ever had, and several emails offering to send gifts. I'll decline the gifts and ask for donations to Charlie's orphanage in the next month. But that is so kind to offer to send something to a person you only know through the Internet. Thank you. I don't think this has to do with Charlie being adopted... my family is not like that. I think it has to do with not realizing that this might be my one big adult rite of passage, and how important it was to me. I'm sorry to read from the comments how many of you have gone through this without familial support though, that is a real shame and must have hurt a great deal. So many of you commented on that it seems like almost a "norm" in adoption.

But enough about that. I'll let you know how the shower turns out.

And now back to my regularly scheduled programming: American Idol last night.

Adam Glambert's rendition of "One" was so awful at one point I thought he was going to make himself throw up with that scream. I used to like him a lot, but that scream is finally getting on my nerves.

Kris did a good job with "Heartless."

Kara DiMyMouthIsStuckClosed has GOT. TO. GO. with her pointing and lock-jaw and pauses and inFLECtions. Grr... she is annoying.

I thought Adam was HORRIBLE!! I can't imangine who is voting for him!! ugh!! I would think all the tweenies...up to my age group (35) are loving some Kris!!!

However, I think that Danny may be the one to go this week!! I did not like his performance at all....and I didn't ike Adam either....we shall see!! :)

Okay, I'm totally guessing here...
1. C, 2.A, 3. A. And I think that Danny is going to go. I really like Adam, but I admit when he sticks his tongue out when he sings...yuck. I thought Kris's "Heartless" was amazing!!!!

I don't watch American Idol either! :(

And yes, like Angela said they are caught up in their own world, but frankly I don't think your dad should have to (or should)step in and shake them out of it. How on earth are you supposed to know who had a momentary lapse of reason, came to their senses and came to your shower and who was coerced or guilted into it?
And here I disagree with Angela...I do not think there should be a seperate shower in NJ that you and Charlie could attend. The point here, if I'm understanding correctly, is that you have gone to them many, MANY times and now would be a nice time for them to reciprocate.
Anyhoo, that's my two cents.
