I'm so anxious....

To see who is going home. Oh My God, I am so proud of Billy Ray he did such a good job. Compared to last week he was a hundred times better!!! I really hope he gets to stay, I'm scared for him though seeing he has the lowest score. BUT I thing Heather Mills was the big shocker of the night. While I am not a huge fan of hers by any means, she really was good. I also have to give props to Laila Ali. She was really good. But, my boy Joey stepped it up and I loved it.

I'm sitting here literally waiting for them to say who goes home. They just announced that Paulina was in the bottom 2. Aggghhhh!!!! Its killing me why do they have to drag it out? I know I know, ratings but its killing me. Yay, Billy and Joey are safe. Whew! And the losers for the week are....Paulina and Alex!!

Dancing with the Stars

Until last season I didn't really watch Dancing with the Stars, I mean I wanted Drew Lachey to win, but last year I was hooked with Emmit. And so when this season started I had to watch...especially with American Idol being such a disappointment. So the season opener was great. I was really hoping that Billy Ray would do so much better than he did. But man he had NO rhythm what so ever. WOW! But then I saw Joey Fatone dancing, and I knew he was going to my favorite! So I'm anxiously waiting Monday to see them dance again, and of course see who goes home on Tues.

Been so busy

That I've been kinda negleting the one or two of you that venture this way. Grey's is sure heating up and pissing me off. American Idol has become...well I dont know. Its no where near as good as it was last season. Dancing with the stars...oh yeah, loving Joey Fatone. They've been messing with my House. I wish they'd leave it alone. So I apologize for the lack of posting. I will try to get back to it. I've just started a new book, and with Spring Break coming I will be able to read it and actually enjoy it. And now back to our regularly scheduled program..

So did you like Grey's?

I did. I love how they brought back people from Meridiths past to get her talk about her giving up. I'm glad that her mom got to tell her that she was proud of her. It was the least she could do since she was so rotten to her in life. I think everything is going to change now. Especially with Izzy. Even though I feel bad for her and wanted to cry for her when Denny stood next to her. I am so pist at her for the way she treated Calli, and she deserved everything Calli and George said to her. She's going to have to grow up and realize that just because George is married doesnt mean they cant be friends. All in all I think it was a great end to a cliff hanger like that.

So who'd you vote for?

Well its time to start voting. Did you? I'll be honest I didn't. I'm not excited about this season like I was last season (even though my boy Chris got booted before he should have) I'm not hating though. I've picked my favorites, but only one or 2 of them seemed really good last night. It wasn't that interesting. Maybe when they get it down to 12 I'll be more interested. I dont know what's up. Either the people arent that great and we've seen better talent or its just me. Either way, if my 2 faves make this week, I'll post who they are. Dont want to jink it

Oh yes, there will be blood

And lots of it. Saw 3 is not for the faint of heart. But if you love gore its so the movie to get. The contraptions are better, and more invintive, which means more blood. I love the fact that they give alot of back story to the other 2. Which is awesome, it lets you think...ahhh now that makes more sence. I love these kind of movies, the kind that make you think, and make you jump. Mind game movies are so the best. I dont want to go into it, just in case someone actually does read this and hasnt seen it. I dont want to ruin it for anyone. But you'll be shocked and grossed out, and it will leave you with your mouth hanging opening. I promise, go rent it, or buy it...just go it now! And if you havent seen the first 2 go get them first..."I want to play a game."

NOOOOOO....not Meridith

They cant do it! They can not do it!! If they kill Meridith, what happens to the show? Man I started crying when McDreamy broke down and George crying. Oh that broke my heart. How rude is it that Izzy told George he made a mistake marrying Calli? Ahhhh....the drama. I'm so glad they found that little boy, and how funny is it that in Meridith's out of body expiriance she says "Oh Sh..." They ended it with comedy, while leaving us hanging. I cant wait until next week. They need to hurry up. I have to know what going to happen.

So ugly is cool...

So since my sister came down, I started watching Ugly Betty, and to my suprise its a really good show. I mean how could a show where a geeky girl is the star not be good. You get trans sexuals, difunctionaly famlies. Confused kids, and Love. Love sweet love...HA when is it ever sweet on tv? All the drama and comedy mixed makes Ugly so tivo worthy. Its something I'll be watching after my sister goes home.

And the Plot thickens...

Holy shit!!! Pardon my french!! "Someone Flies! Someone Dies!" Oh why can't Monday hurry up and get here. Poor Claire, now she doesn't even have an adoptive mother. I think her dad has erased mom's memory one too many times. And I just want to yell at Mohinder "NOOOOOO!!" Was it me or was Nathan crying? Man oh man, I cant believe Nikki killed old dude like that, wow. My mind is still realing from all of it. We're taking bets on who dies next week. I hope Nikki doesnt get to Nathan, I'm thinking he may end up being a good guy, and how cool is it that Claires uncle is her "Hero". Why oh why do they have to make it so good? I'm on the edge of my seat wanting to see next weeks. Who's on the list? Who's going to die? What happens next....I feel like a little kid waiting on Santa. Am I the only one?

And they're off to Hollywood

So auditions are over, and they've picked 120 to go on to the next round in Hollywood. Darn, I must say the auditions are my favorite part of American Idol. Some of those people...they have to know they cant sing. And if someone told them they could, they shouldnt lie. Oh goodness. I promise you those people. Those you cant understand, those who are just tone deaf. Wow. Now its time to pick a favorite and hope they make it to the top 12...oh did you know that this seasons Idol has already kicked off 3 people who made it to Hollywood. One because he wouldnt cut his hair, and 2 because they have records. I swear, dont they learn? Honestly, in the past when the history comes out they always get booted. Have some humilty people!! As you can tell from the video...some people just dont have any shame.

How sad...

I'm sure by now everyone has heard that Anna Nicole Smith has died. I'm not a huge fan of her's, but when her son died I felt her. I couldnt imagin the pain she must have felt. And now almost 5 month to the day of his death, she died. There is a lot of spectulation about how she died. I know alot of people think she killed herself. Even I did at first. But the more I think about it, the more I think about it I think she died of a broken heart. My sister said that was sad to think that she loved one child more than another, but Daniel was there 20 years. He grew up with his mom...I understand. I understand how it feels to love someone so much that just thinking about loosing them hurts. I really hope they dont drag out the details, and I hope little Dani Lynn gets where she belongs. And I hope Anna and Daniel are together where ever they are.

Claire's dad is Who?

Is anyone as shocked as I am to find out that Claire's dad is Nathen? Ohmygod!! We were taking bets here, I really thought it was Syler. Scott thought it was Linderman, and my sister (the hussy) got it right. I still can't figure out if he's a good guy or not. What about poor Peter. Still trying to figure all of this out. Poor guy. I was happy that Hiro stuck up for himself. You go Hiro!! And poor Niki...Jessica is going to get her killed. I wonder if Micha will be able to tell its her, he was able to before. Ahh so much going on. And the previews for next week? Make me want to hit fast forward...I'm on the edge of my seat. Mohinder and Syler. Holy Crap!!! So are you on the list?

I just finished it...

I had heard about this book, and I kept putting off buying it. But I went to Books-A-Million and I had to get it. I think it took me a week to read, it would have taken less but with everything going on...Its been awhile since a book made me cry and made me feel good after I read it. The whole plot of this book is, before you go you heaven, you meet five people. Five people from your life...could be a stranger, someone you loved, someone who was around before you were born...well these five people have lessons for you, not lessons per say, but explinations. I know people wonder why they were put here on Earth, why they lived when someone else died, and these five people give your life meaning. The meaning you've been looking for. Its an awesome thought. That you get your questions answered and when you meet your five people you go to your heaven. Where you were the happiest, where you wait for someone who's life you touched and you help them to their heaven. " share his part of the secret of heaven: that each affects the other and the other affects the next, and the world is full of stories, but the stories are all one." That is the final line of the book, it is nice to think think that all of our lives are intertwined and we will help each other when it matters most. I loved this book, I wish I could buy a copy for everyone to read. On the back of the book Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club said: "This is a fable you will devour when you fall in love. This is a tale you will keep by your side when you are lost. This is a story you will turn to again and again, because it posseses the rare magi to let you see yourself and the world anew. This book is a gift to the soul." and that sums it up.

I cant wait to see the movie

Yes I went out and bought a kids book, and I enjoyed reading it again. I read it in the 5th or 6th grade, and when it popped up on the banned book list I wanted to read it again. And now they've made it a movie. Which is really interesting to me since the book is a whole 162pages long, big print. It looks good though. BUT knowing how the book end means its going to be a sad movie despite all the great imagination there is in it. When I get to the movies and see it I will let you know if its worth going to see. Or if it should have just stayed a book.

You want to hear a story?

We were couch potatos last night, we watched movies and did nothing else. I loved Lady in the
Water, my sister didnt. If you like any other M.Night Shyamalan movies you will like this. Its a bed time story, that just happens to be true. Its has all the great elements. The mythical nymph, monsters, and protectors, and all of them live in the same apartment building. Yeah, yeah I know it sounds strange. But it all makes sence. Think about the most ordinary people can do the most extrodinary things, and I think thats the point of the movie, but of course it has that "twist" only M.Night Shymalan can put on it.

The word is Akeelah...A-k-e-e--l-a-h

I know this movie has been out since 2005, but I just sat down and watched it last night. And let me say it was a really good movie. Its one of those movies that reminds you that there is still good in the world. I loved how this girl from Crenshaw got the whole community behinde her to win the National Spelling Bee. The girl even got the drug dealers calling out words to her to help her practice. I loved that kids could look up to her. She is a role model in this movie, she is strong, brave, empathic young lady. Lawerence Fishburn played a seriouse role where he doesnt wear a black trench coat. If you dont have anything to watch, I would tell you to brush up on your spelling and rent this movie!!

Is the

Yes, I know I'm 2 days late on House, but there was an American Idol conflict. So did anyone watch it? We finally got to see a softer side of of Dr. House. Who knew he had any history that could explain why he is such a hard ass. Its funny that only his patients get to see the soft side of him and then its only a very few patients. And this one Tues. man, she broke House down like a little kid. I loved how Cutty made him do the grunt work in the clinc. I'm so happy she held the fact that she saved him from jail over his head. Its good to know that even the great Dr. House can be humbled. No matter how big of an asshole House is, I love him. I mean come on who doesn't?

Guess What?!

Guess what! Guess what? J.K. Rowling finally announced the release of the finall Harry Potter book. July21, mark your calenders!! July 21. Thats really not that far away. I'm so excited. That's just enough time to for me to reread the books and get caught up. I'm cant wait to find out what happens to all of them. Who dies? Is she going to kill Harry? There are so many questions that need to be answered and this book is it. Oh my goodness. Not only does the book come out this summer so doesn the fifth movie. Oh happy day, its going to be a great summer.

Harry?! Daniel? Who?

OH MY GOD! Has anyone else seen this? Harry Potter has grown up. And boy is he a hottie. I've been hearing on the news that people are upset because Daniel Radcliff has gone and grown up. I heard a someone say that he has a "moral responsibility" to the children who love Harry Potter. Is that fair? To say that he can only ever be Harry. Anyone who knows me I love Harry Potter books, movies, all of it. But its not fair to think that all he should ever do. The Harry movies only have 2 more to go, then what are they suppose to do. Nothing? I for one applaud him. Good for you Daniel. I hope they make it a movie so I can see it.
