Random Thoughts

I've just learned that the American Idol Wildcard Round will be completely controlled by the judges. Each judge will pick two contestants from the Final 36 and one more contestant may be selected to make it 8 or 9 people battling for three spots in the Final 12. The wildcard round will air next Thursday. The judges will pick those three during the episode.

My favorite from Group 2 was Megan. I like her charisma. I also enjoyed the wild performance from "Norman Gentle" that Simon predictably hated.

My buddy's team (our alma-mater) won last night, and that is very special.

The new 90210 has not yet captured my imagination. I thought that I would love it, but something is missing for me. It reminds me that I don't know why I've never fallen in love with One Tree Hill.

I just can't understand the rationale for the requirement of a super-majority (60 votes) to move a bill through the Senate without a filibuster.

Why do I sometimes catch myself watching Tool Academy? I totally believe it's cruel and unusual punishment for the guys.


  1. Tool Academy? Sounds like a college course I missed!! (What's the black background about? Looks pretty stunning with the color titles.)

  2. Tool Academy is a television show where girlfriends have brought their boyfriends in for a personality makeover within a game show.

    Concerning the background, I simply like black.

  3. HOw about SNOW in Birmingham?????????

  4. Hey Stephen! Mom got me on your blog,and I love it...I will add more later. Enjoy the snow!
