Smells like *sniff sniff* second sock syndrome. It might be creeping into chez turtle. Only because I so want to finish the Mystery Tee. I want to wear it Monday! I do! I'm going to finish the back tonight, and cast on for the front. If all goes well, I'll have nothing left to do on Sunday beyond seaming it all up. I nearly finished off the back last night, but I didn't make as much progress at knitting group as I could have. Tuesday's are further away than my other knitting nights, so I lost time on the To and From. *sigh* 2 more stripes and it's done though. Now, a bit of a review. Some of you might know that I'm a bit of a reality show nut. I watch Survivor, Big Brother, Amazing Race, Blow Out (Jonathan is such an ass) and yes - American Idol. My favorite band of all time is Queen. And last night, the two joined in perfect harmony. Well, not so perfect as far as the harmony goes, but you know what I mean. Chris Daughtry really impressed me. I was so peeved that Simon was all disappointed that he didn't choose one of their "bigger" songs. Frankly, I was so proud that he had chosen a more obscure song ("Innuendo") than the rest! He did an absolutely fantabulous job! And Taylor too! "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" was such a perfect song for him. Paris Bennet, wow, "The Show Must Go On" was a great song for her as well, and I don't categorize it with all their "big" songs either. So I give her props for that. Now, please, somebody get Ace Young off my screen. What he "tried" to do with "We Will Rock You" was just flat out wrong. At least get the damn words right if you're going to change up the arrangement. Ass. You can't do that to a song like that. It's bigger than you, Ace. Kelly Pickler did an ok job. But really, if another amateur singer tries to sing "Bohemian Rhapsody" again (and Constantine didn't do such a great job, IMHO) I'm gonna scream. Just - don't. There were so many other songs she could have done. And whatsherface. Catherine McPhee - SUCKED ASS. She was off key, futzing up words, and just - gah! Bucky actually did a good job with "Fat Bottomed Girls" and I don't even like Bucky. But I did last night. Who else, oh, Elliot. Meh. He lost my support when he mentioned it was the first time he'd heard the song. It's freaking "Somebody to Love". If you were around in 1992 you heard the George Michael verision for the tribute concert most of that year on the radio, if not on MTV. I don't buy it. I missed Mandisa. I wonder what she would have chosen to sing. I'm sure she would have knocked it out of the park.
