Snarky Idol judges suck ass

I am SO SICK of hearing the bickering and barbed jabs back and forth between Ryan, Paula and Simon. Ok, I can understand that Simon has no respect for people's dignity, and he stomps all over these brave souls who dare to actually sing in front of him. Part of me says he deserves his comeuppance, and part of me agrees with him whole-heartedly. You tell 'em, Simon! Even still, the negativity of their bickering and sniping at each other is really beginning to grate on my nerves and completely distracts me from what I want to be focusing on: the critique. It's bad enough that Ryan needs to completely dis Simon at every turn, but I seriously thought Paula was going to smack him tonight when he told her to shut up. And I could tell by the way he was looking at her that he was ready to explode. You know, that really sucks. This is a family show, and we watch it as a family. We really don't need to hear that and besides, what do you suppose it is teaching my children? Argue with your coworkers? Hate those who disagree with you? Act ugly just because you don't like how someone said something? This show is quickly becoming non-family fare. Me no likey!

Rock My World

I know you've been wondering where I've been lately. Well, I started my new job in Holland ata place called Innovation Technologies something - ITC is what we usually call it. I absolutely love my job, my boss is awesome and everyday I make a contribution that makes me feel good. My title is Project/Data Coordinator and that basically means setting up processes and procedures to track production in China. It's very interesting and I enjoy it.

But that isn't nearly the best of it. I got my wedding dress and I feel absolutely gorgeous in it. I just got my hair done and Chris can't get over how "smoking hot" I look. Funny, I thought I was looking pudgy. But by far the absolute best thing that has happened to me is the Bridal Shower and Bride-n-Groom Party my sister threw for me last weekend. They were two separate events (she's so ambitious!). The theme of the shower was a tea party and the decorations were so beautiful and the cake was not only beautiful but delicious, too! And everyone brought me a favorite recipe plus the stuff to make it. I love the idea of cooking family favorites. You know, people used to pass recipes down through the generations. Well, people don't cook as much as they used to, plus they just don't pass recipes down much anymore. I'm really happy that we are changing that with my shower. I sent everyone my favorite recipe along with their thank-you card.

And oh, the Bride-n-Groom party! It was soooo much fun and it was so cool to see my family having so much fun. It made everyone really excited about the reception. We had so much fun. You should have seen Ray and Cindy. They were dancing really funny and having an absolute blast. It is so cool, too, that Chris is a great dancer. We have a lot of fun on the dance floor. I wish I could share some pics because they would have been totally awesome, but I haven't seen any yet. I know Uncle Yoobee got a lot of great shots. You'd think he'd share, but nooooooooo! (hint hint!!)

Well, I have to run because there is more to be done for the wedding. Off I go!
