About Last Night...

First off, thanks so much for your get well wishes and incessant clapping. While still not 100%, I am feeling a zillion times better today.

More importantly, though, some serious shizz went down on the telly last night! While I was having my mind blown by the Lost finale, American Idol finally put the "Go" in Gokey when they sent home the talented yet annoyingly smug Danny Gokey. Thank God! While I appreciate Adam Lambert, Kris Allen is the guy I'd actually listen to on the radio...maybe...if I listened any Idol contestants save my girl K. Clarkson. An Adam/Kris finale should be pretty sweet. I'm so glad I won't have to endure another week of Gokey's craptastic yelling/90's balladeering. (Also, this is officially my last season of Idol. I mean, my grandma is even too cool to watch it anymore. Time to shut it down).

Also, Teyona won ANTM. I saw this decision coming 10 Tyra weaves ago, so I was a bit disappointed. The girl I want (Alison) never seems to win this show. I must not have an eye for top model talent. And no Paulina next season?! Lame.

I just wanted to post a picture of Terry O'Quinn

And finally, Lost. What to say about Lost other than What. The. Hell?!? Not many questions were answered, yet a dozen more were added to the list. Can I still love John Locke if he's evil? Can I admire Jacob knowing he was one of Dexter's victims? Will I ever stop missing Charlie? A bunch of other questions which are actually serious and hurt my mind grapes? I can't believe we all have to wait nearly a year to find out.

Your thoughts? On anything at all?

If I had outlined my idea of the "perfect" Lost episode last night, it would not have looked anything like that. And yet, I loved that episode. It reminded me of one of the reasons I love that show in the first place: It's frequent ability to give me not what I want, but what I need

I'm afraid I didn't read your last paragraph (or Liz's comment) because Lost is a show that must be watched over an evening either on DVD or by download. So I think this weekend I've got about eight episodes to catch up on. Huzzah!

As for ANTM, I'm sad Alison didn't win. I've had a little more success than you with favourites (Yay Carridee!) but they rarely pick the ones I want to win either.

Glad you're feeling better chica!

And yes, "Lost" surely did raise more questions than it answered.

And I too wanted Alison to be in the AI final. Still, as it's mainly little girls voting you knew it would be the boys who'd remain. Pah.

I suppose Adam and Kris is a decent final, although Adam and Allison would have been awesomeness defined.

And I'm glad to see you have joined me in my "This is the last season for AI, I swears!" campaign!

I've given up on television for now. If Aaron Sorkin writes something else or my life changes such that I don't have rehearsal or the gym most nights, maybe. But I'm a country fan, and I'm a big fan of both Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler. Oh, and Josh Gracin. And all of them started on Idol, even if I didn't know about them 'til later. I really like Kelly C's latest, though I'm hardly her biggest fan.

I had to stop reading when you started talking about Lost. I still haven't seen one episode, and I have the previous seasons buried somewhere in my Netflix queue. I'll get around to it eventually.

As for AI, you say you'll stop watching, but you won't. That's what I predict anyway. And my predictions are at least 50% accurate.

I clapped a bunch for you, I'm glad your feeling better.

My favorite character in Lost is Locke. It kind of hurt my feelings that he was really dead.

But maybe not dead. Probably dead. I mean there's his body and all, but is it maybe him from another time period somehow coming back like ... ahh, you know what? I give up.
