I Miss Chris...

Two Words
There's no McPhever here, that's for sure!

I think America is dumb for voting for Katharine McFAKER. Chris definitely didn't deserve to go home! I'm so sad...he was my boy! My hatred for Katharine grows...if she wins, I'm for real going to be pissed. She was the worst one last night for sure. The look on their faces when they announced it...and Ryan made me crazy with the way he did it. Did you see the look on Chris' face? He was totally caught off guard. And Katharine even knew she should have gone home...she was totally shocked. Even Simon said she deserved to go home. Ugh. I hate that I'm this invested in these people. I've been watching and rooting for 9 weeks now...and then, we all get crapped on. It's all turned in to a big popularity contest. Why did I ever start watching American Idol? Blah!

bad tv is great

So I posted this on myspace as for those of you reading it again. :)

I don't know what's wrong with the sick world we live in...but David Blaine was going to be drowned alive tonight for all of America to see. My roommate said "I don't know why anyone would want to watch that." My reply..."I don't either, but I sure am one of those people." Yes...I know it's strange. I can't explain why I wanted to watch it. It was pretty horrific actually. I disappointed would you be if you wanted to break a record and hold your breath underwater in a plastic bubble for 9 minutes, but you had to have the divers rescue you after 7:08? I'd think it's be a pretty humiliating experience. I guess I'm not too terribly disappointed in myself for only being able to hold my breath for 1 minute. Of course he did break a record for being underwater for 177 hours...but then again his skin is falling off.

While I'm talking about subjecting myself to awful tv...I definitely watched the series finale of 7th Heaven. It's like a train wreck, but I continue watching. Why? I have no clue. It's got to be one of the longest running crappy shows ever. But little Simon all grown up about to get married...why wouldn't I want to watch? I mean...can you say DRAMA!!!!

Derby Day

So it was a little weird not actually being in Ky when the Derby ran today. I guess it's always been a big deal for me and my family...I guess because we're from Kentucky and it always was there. Growing up so close to Louisville probably also helped contribute. I've grown up loving the Derby. Just something about it makes me happy.

I remember watching the derby with my dad when I was little...It was 1989 when Sunday Silence won. It was my dad's horse, and therefore it was my horse as well. I remember cheering at the tv waiting for our horse to win. Then, it happened. Sunday Silence won the derby...and I was so excited. My dad even gave me a dollar. That was the first time I actually remember watching the derby.

This year, I sat in my apt wishing I was with people who would get as excited as I was. I always pick my horses based on the names I like...this years choice was Cause to Believe...and second on my list...was Barbaro. I didn't place any bets this year because I didn't have a real way to. Maybe next year, I'll just go to the Derby. Anyone game?
