Idol Rain Delay

Ok, kids. I know that I'm sort of your American American Idol recap idol (whew), but my recap will be a bit delayed this evening. I will get to it, it just may be a little later or maybe even not until...tomorrow. My brother, J-Fred, is in town again so I'm going out to dinner with him tonight while I tape the Duel of the Davids. Can you believe how out of whack my priorities have become? Family before TV*?? I know. I just looked in the mirror and didn't recognize myself.

I know that some of you immediately come to my blog after the show every Tuesday night to read my brilliant recap, and you sit there hunched over, staring blankly at my old post, repeatedly hitting the refresh button, nearly soiling yourself with excitement over what is to come, and then really soiling yourself when it finally does. All I can say is, I'm sorry. But don't be angry with me. And don't be sad. Just imagine how good it will feel when I eventually end your quivering anticipation by finally posting another masterfully crafted recap! I just hope your Depends are dependable enough to handle such a joyful explosion.

*Of course, you know that if Michael Johns was in the Final Two, J-Fred's ass would be alone in his hotel bar.

I hope at least that J-Fred is bringing along a copy of his will and having you written in as sole beneficiary.

Beth said...

I hope J-Fred picks up our bar tab. I'll have a cosmopolitan — with a premium vodka, thank you very much.

Dave said...

I'm going to wear out the "refresh" button on my browser waiting (with baited breath) for your Idol recap.

Editor said...

The final tonight was painfully predictable, an Archaleta lovefest. He seems like a nice kid, but incredibly dull and oh, so squeaky clean.

Andrew said...

For his first song choice of this delayed blog entry, Andrew chooses "Anticipation" (natch)

Does this ascot work on me?

Red said...

'Tis a good thing I got off my lazy ass and wrote my own recap this week instead of just linking to yours, I guess.

Falwless said...

Your priorities are so out of whack it's ridiculous. In fact, I'm boycotting your blog. That'll teach you.

Heather said...

Well, crap. Now I have to go watch it myself.

Travis said...

I'm definitely curious to see if you agreed with the judges and their gushing over DA. I thought he proved yet again that he's a capable vocalist and a stunningly boring entertainer.

DC may not win, but at least he showed that he's a versatile and charismatic performer.

Looking forward to your thoughts.

bloody awful poetry said...

I shall not watch the Duel of the Davids until after I have read your recap. It makes the show way more interesting than it actually is.

Dale said...

I soil myself for one reason or another everytime I show up here anyway so don't feel bad.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
