Poor Little Thing

Tricky tricky America.

It was crystal clear that it was Paris or Bucky's turn to go but they zapped Mandisa instead. Sure, she sucked hard but I'm pretty sure the other two were sucking and blowing at the same time. Paris was so relieved she forgot to turn on the waterworks.

Kenny Rogers looking like he may have had even more plastic surgery since last night's show treated us to a heartstoppingly mediocre song. I bet he couldn't even get a babysitter to marry him at this point.

Suggestion - give up the God thing and marry Vin Diesel just so I can call you Mandisa Diesel or ManDiesel for short. Or something like that.

I read this post several times over the course of 24 hours before I finally figured out what it was about.

Duh.

OK, this is how lazy I am when it comes to keeping up with pop culture: I've never seen American Idol. It's not snobbery or anything like that--it's just that the last time I had decent reception, it was on at the same time as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and that seemed more important. AI is my sister's very favorite show and she says I would love it if I ever watched it, and she's probably right, because I love all those shows that include some sort of real-life heartbreak and triumph in 60 tidy minutes. It's perfect.

Hi Holly...I'm big on pop culture but typically a snob when it comes to the AI and Apprentice-y type things. But then, I seem to be watching them both. There's only a small amount of self loathing involved.

Wanna know a secret? I've never seen the Buffy series although I know it's much lauded and well loved. I did recently see the film Serenity and loved it so perhaps sometime I'll go Buff diving -- sorry, that was uncalled for.

I feel a similar sense of self-loathing. At the beginning of this season, I had never watched AI and was pretty smug about it. Now I'm watching it every week. And I'm sad to see Mandisa go too, but jesus that song was awful. Holy crap.

dale, do you post on TWoP? That's one of my favorite sites but I just tend to lurk.

ManDiesel has a great ring to it.

Kenny's face looks like a pile of boiled pigmeat.

Dale said...

Mandisa should have known better than to get the Shania stink on her Gizmo - even Shania can't stay on key.

I love TWoP Chelene but I'm just a lurker too. I'm always scared they'll find me ignorant and wanting so I just read and enjoy.

She's large and in charge, he's bald and 4 feet tall, together they are ... MANDIESEL

Mmm, did you say boiled pigmeat? I like it baked or fried too but hey, as long as I don't gots to cook it.

I've never seen Buffy either. I loved the movie when it first came out, though.

Dale said...

Liking your new photo there Reese! You're way hotter than either Buffy!

I read this particular comment thread at least three times a day so I can giggle at "Buff diving".

I'm not ashamed.

Dale said...

I'm glad I'm slaying you with the Buff diving Chelene, it's why they pay me so much to blog!

Okay, maybe I don't know what pigmeat looks like since I don't eat it.
