Yesterday was a good day, but as I’m sitting here preparing for school today, I realized I’m out of paper. Wouldn’t be such a big deal if the church wasn’t out of paper too and we didn’t live 17 miles from Walmart. Wouldn’t be such a big deal if I’d remembered to buy paper at Target when we were there YESTERDAY! It’s kind of hard to print out worksheets when you don’t have any paper. Looks like I’m going to have to be really creative to get some learning done today. *oops*
American Idol was “just ok for me” last night – to steal a line from Randy Jackson. Blake Lewis got things off to a great start. He’s got real talent and could start selling out concerts tomorrow. The best thing that could happen to him would to be knocked out THIS week so that he could be signed tomorrow instead of having to wait until the end of the season. Loved Chris Sligh’s version of We All Just Want To Be Loved at the end too. The middle stuff definitely left something to be desired though. Pearl Jam should SUE American Idol over what they did to Jeremy. It wasn’t so much that the vocals just weren’t there by Sundance, but whoever put together that song with background vocals should be shot. AWFUL arrangement. Sanjaya sucked as usual. Even the judges dont’ remember why they put him in this competetion and you know you’re bad when even Paula has a hard time coming up with something positive to say. I love John Mayer and what that kid did to Waiting On The World To Change is just plain wrong. I like Phil Stacey well enough, but it was just not his night. I don’t know if it was the fact that he was singing a song that was made popular by a female artist or the fact that the beginning was just too low for him (his tone is horrid in the lower registers), but last night was just not good for him. The rest of the performances were completely forgettable.
On a completely different note, we went out for dinner last night. Pizza Hut – YUM! We got lucky because it was Tuesday and kids eat free with a paying adult (which we had no idea about). We got out of there for the same amount we would have payed at McDonalds. And our kids ate and ate and ate. I don’t know what we’re going to do with Elijah and Noah as they get older. They must have hollow legs to store all the food they ate. The low point of th enight came when I watched a waitress drop an entire stack of plates on the floor and then try to put them away like they were clean! ICK! Thankfully the manager saw her do it and told her that they all had to go back in the dishwasher. Even then, the waitress stood there and argued that the plates mostly stayed together so they didn’t actually touch the floor except on their sides. *ick* The manager just came and took them and put them back in the back while the waitress rolled her eyes. It’ll be a while before we go back to Pizza Hut.
