J came back into town on Sunday. He had been gone last weekend for a wedding. I spent most of Sunday catching up on house chores like laundry, vacuuming, and dishes. Since all of our TV shows ended the week before, there wasn’t much to look forward to this week besides American Idol.
Speaking of Idol, we watched the final face off between Kris Allen and Adam Lambert on Tuesday. Adam was good that night. Kris was okay. Although I still liked Kris better, I thought Adam was going to win.
After AI, we watch the new show, Glee. Did you watch it? Hilarious! And so true to high school life with the jocks, nerds, and cheerleaders all clashing. And it ended with a musical number! Can’t be that. But overall, loved this show and looking forward to watching it this fall.
Of course, Wednesday night, we had to watch the Idol finale. Cyndi Lauper, Lionel Richies, Santana, Steve Martin, Black Eyed Peas, Kiss, and even Queen! Wow! Wow! Wow! It was a great show and the final two contestants definitely shined, and I STILL thought Adam had it. Boy, was I shocked with Ryan called out Kris’s name. Thanks to that, I also win 30 bucks at work! Ha! Ha! Four of us drew two names each when they got down to 8 and each put in 10 bucks. Whoever had the winner gets the money. And I had Kris! I liked Kris because he is shy and was the underdog, and I’ll definitely be looking forward to his album.
Thursday night, at long last, it was time for Nigile, Cat, and Mary on So You Think You Can Dance. Two whole hours and I watched and loved every minute of it. Lots of promise this year, and it was nice to see some a few people from previous seasons return to audition again. I’m even more excited about next week because the commercial showed they held auditions in Memphis. Pronounced Mayumpfis by the locals!
Friday was a great day because not only because it was the end of the work week, but because it was the eve of my three day weekend. Whoot! Whoot! Friday night we watched the first two episodes of True Blood: Season 1 which had arrived this week thanks to Netflix. Have you seen True Blood? It’s an HBO show and the first season just came out on DVD. I’d never heard of it till a few months ago, and I may just have to add HBO to my channels for this show. Loved it!!!! Move over Twilight is all I have to say. True Blood is about Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress in a backwoods Louisiana bar. Her best friend is a sassy black chick. Her brother is a horny toad who spends at least ten minutes of every episode scantily clad and having sex. Oh, and vampires have just “come out of the coffin” when something called True Blood is discovered. It’s a synthetic bottled blood available right in you 7-11 which can sustain them, so now they want equal rights. A mysterious vampire named Bill Compton wanders into the bar one night and Sookie becomes intriqued. Let the lazy southern drawl and humor begin! Can’t wait to watch the rest of the season. True Blood is also based on books, which I might just have to read after seeing this show. It’s a great series which I hope they continue, but I’m afraid it might be hanging onto Twilight’s coat tails, not by choice, even though this show is TOTALLY different (and much better).
So now I have a three day weekend ahead of me. J and I might go see Star Trek this weekend. Other than that, I’m taking it easy.
And that’s my week end review!
