Making a Week Night Special!


My kids love to watch the auditions of American Idol...they laugh so hard. It makes me laugh to watch them! Of course, thank goodness for "tivo" so we can fast forward some parts like the lady who is inclined to wear shiny silver stars on her shaky chest! I am a fair weather friend to this show but I can watch a couple of nights and that's about it for me!



But, all we have to do is pull out the popcorn machine and seasonings and my kids think we are having a party. I must admit sometimes just doing things quickly and neatly takes over anything out of the ordinary. However, once it's started and I have gotten over the {idea} that I will probaly have to vacuum after everyone salts their popcorn...it's fun!


One more thing back to American Idol, as I watch some of those crazy people sing who think they have a voice but clearly within the first 3 seconds prove that they DO NOT! I sit there and wonder "Where is there family or friends? Is anyone ever honest with them and tell them they do NOT have a chance! Really!?".


I think one of my favorite moments EVER on American Idol is when that judge asked that young man last night "Did you eat paint chips as a kid?". It still makes me laugh!

OH WHAT FUN!! My kids would go crazy if we had a popcorn machine complete with all those seasonings for their choosing:)

Do you believe I have never watched an episode of American Idol?

I know so many people really enjoy it, but I just couldn't bring myself to tune in. I am not a big TV person to begin with.

TGIF! Enjoy your weekend and stay warm.

I'm with Lisa- I've never watched an episode of American Idol either.

WOW! That popcorn machine with all the trimmings looks AWESOME! I bet that's fun to have around and use!

I love me some AMERICAN IDOL! Abby and I almost always sit together and watch it with a big bowl of popcorn to share. I agree...Steven Tyler's comment about the paint chips nearly pushed me over the edge...SO FUNNY!

What a fun family time. I think the same thing about those people who can't sing but try. Why didn't anyone stop them from going?

That sounds like a fun night! I never got into AI. I am with you that most of them can't sing!
