What to say about the departure of Siobhan Magnus? This dippey gal has been quite an interesting contestant this year. I’ve never seen someone who can hit these incredibly high and difficult notes, but otherwise, cannot sing! I feel the judges did her a great disservice by only focusing on those big notes and not pointing out to her that everything else sounded awful! I believe she needs a good vocal coach. The potential would have to be there, right? Also, she needs to be advised about the fact that she has no soul to her voice. She should never attempt to sing R&B and she certainly should NEVER sing Aretha.
I tuned my TV in at 9:50pm. I’ve had no interest in the performers on results night. This truly is the least interesting season since Carrie Underwood. I’m finding far more entertainment on “Vote for the Worst.”

Wow! I really wanted to post the original Madonna, "Like A Prayer" video. However, YouTube will not let me embed it. It must have some licensing issues. It's a shame, because I can't get this song out of my head. I remember the video being controversial when it came out and I enjoyed watching it again. So I suggest pulling it up on YouTube and having a peek. All I can say is, "Man, Madonna sure has a hard time keeping those straps up!"

So I believe I’m a total and complete Gleek. I was so excited to see the Madonna tribute episode that I could barely contain myself. Then I found it they are repeating tonight and I was jumping with joy! Really! So I just watched it Tuesday and it’s on my DVR, yet knowing they were broadcasting it again made me so happy. Right now it’s like, “Screw American Idol, let’s get to Glee!”

I promised myself that I would not try to figure out the end of Lost. I wanted to sit back and let the final episodes unfold. I would not waste time on any more theories. I promised! Then they had to end last week’s episode with a Gene Wilder voiceover from Willy Wonka! What are you doing to me?
It has to be a clue right? That is way too random of a reference. If I dissect my Wonka Pysch 101 this is what I come up with.
1. We know our main characters are candidates. Wonka had to find someone to run the factory, so he opened his doors in hopes of finding someone who loved the factory as much as he did.
2. Slugworth was thought to be a villain, but was later revealed to be working for Wonka. He was testing those kids to see which ones were honest. Remember they were supposed to bring him an everlasting gobstopper? This means my earlier theory is true and Fake-John Locke is just a spy for Jacob and not evil.
3. Wonka told Charlie he could bring his whole family to live with him in the factory. I think we all know Jack is Charlie in this scenario. Will his family be the people who would have a better life on the island? I’m thinking Kate, Sawyer, Rose (where is she?) and maybe Claire.
This is all I have for now. Help me out people! Watch the clip above. Listen and think. By the way, I blubbered like a baby through last week’s episode. I need to remember to have tissue nearby this week.

So this is starting to feel like an albatross! I have so many index cards, sticky notes and scribbled on gas receipts, I can’t even keep track any more! I’m trying my best to get these all on here and then I really need to go back to posting these daily!
I had to call over my husband and daughter and to watch this great clip from The Daily Show. Apparently, Glen Beck thinks the library is free. I used my best Bana voice when I said, “That’s gold Jerry!”
After dinner I was chilling with the kids and suddenly we were all citing our favorite episodes. I looked at my new generation of Seinfeld fans and said, “Me so happy. Me
want to cry.”
Wow, American Idol really has a knack for bringing up the Seinfeld quotes. Tonight we battled quotes on the horrendous performances with me offering up Mr. Costanza’s, “What is that supposed to mean?” And my daughter argued that the better quote was from Kramer’s faux boss, “I don’t even know what this is supposed to be?”
After work I went to library to pick up some books I had on hold. My daughter texted me asking where I was. I messaged back that I was getting my books, baby! Her response was, “You’re using my babies?” I raised her well!
I often bring home a $5 Little Ceasar’s pizza on Fridays. It’s perfect for me because I can also enter the house with my Jerry voice, “Want some pizza?”
My daughter wants to win best use of a Seinfeld quote. She may take the crown because this was pretty good. I was relaxing in front of the TV and asked her to bring my pillow from the bed. She walked over slowly with it, stopping just before my face and said, “Oh Elaine, what are YOU doing here?”
Because of our pooch, I’m usually the first one up on the weekends. While getting my coffee cup from the cupboard I cut my finger on the handle. Later when my hubby woke up, I showed him where I cut myself. He said, “That’s it! We’re moving!” Just like George’s dad when George said he heard a rat.
