Yes, the first contestant on one of the greatest shows on earth (American Idol) broke my heart.Ã‚Â First I felt sorry for her.Ã‚Â My goodness she laid it out there and it dropped like a sack of dead mice.
But then, secondly, American Idol always strikes at the heart of my greatest fear:Ã‚Â That I’m contestant number one’s doppleganger in the writing world.Ã‚Â What if that’s me?
I do have independant confirmation that I’mÃ‚Â notÃ‚Â EXACTLY like contestant number one.Ã‚Â But I could be wallowing in a only slightly higher level ineptitude forever, thinking the next book’sÃ‚Â the one that’s gonna sell…
Or I am the next one to succeed, tears of joy running downÃ‚Â my face, all that.Ã‚Â Yeah, I’ll go with that image.Ã‚Â It suits me better.Ã‚Â For now anyway.
And oh, that Jennifer Hudson.Ã‚Â Saw her in Dreamgirls and she was magnificent.Ã‚Â Totally love the underdog, rags to riches theme she has working.Ã‚Â She is awesome and it’s nice that someone noticed what Simon Cowell and, I guess, a lot of America didn’tÃ‚Â when voting forÃ‚Â American Idol.
So, are you watching or have you had enough?
PS, my computer has crashed so much so hard the last week that I ordered a new one.Ã‚Â I can’t be on this very long before it crashes again, so excuse my shoddy visits to everyone else’s blogs…I’ll be back as soon as the new one arrives.
