I'm Baaaaaaaaaack!!

IN THE NEWS: According to FOXNews, "Akano Nzerem, 54, of South San Francisco, is charged with felony counts of domestic violence, mayhem, false imprisonment, battery and making criminal threats.
Nzerem told police he was provoked by his wife attacking him first and calling him a short man, according to the district attorney's office.
Police said Nzerem shoved aside his 16-year-old daughter when she tried to intervene in the argument. He then allegedly grabbed his wife in a bear hug and bit off her lip.
Police recovered the lip from the floor but doctors were unable to reattach it. Nzerem's wife said authorities have exaggerated the extent of her injuries."

Hey! I'm back from my vacation!

So how have you been? Good, good. Okay, shut up now. Sheesh! Enough about you. Let's talk about me.

Well, I told you I was some place hot. And I was. I was....

In the BAHAMAS!!!

Yay! We had a great time! And I even managed to avoid any burning--even with sunscreen that had an expiration date of 4/07. Ooops. That must have been why it was so cheap. You have to remember to check those things.

I'll chat more about the trip on Friday, since tomorrow is Thursday Thirteen and right now I must get ready because I have a busy day back. I have to take my daughter to the zoo for her last day of preschool, I don't have the cookies I said I'd bring, and long story short... I must get fingerprinted this afternoon. LOL!

So let's recap some stuff I've wanted to get off my chest since I left:
1) American Idol.
Melinda was voted off!! I was shocked. But then my hubby went on the explain the age of the people voting.
So I said, "But I voted."
My hubby: (looking surprised) "You did?"
Me: "Yep."
Hubby: "Well, did you vote for Melinda?"
Me: (suddenly feeling guilty) "Uh, no. I voted for Blake. In fact I gave him more than one vote." (Actually, 19 times courtesy of the redial before it was busy and I couldn't get thru anymore)
Hubby: (with smug expression) "I rest my case."
In my defense, I just assumed people were voting for Melinda. I thought a Melinda/Blake showdown would be more interesting.
By the way, my hubby predicted Jordin and Blake from the VERY beginning. And he likes to remind me of that fact.

2) 24.
Does anybody watch this show? I do. Was it me? But I didn't think the season finale was much of a "cliff hanger". In fact, it was tame/lame/zzzzzz.
You're suspect 24. But I'll give you another shot in January.

Well, that's all for now. We'll talk more later.

So what was everybody up to while I was gone?

I know you had a ball! Pictures, please.

I'm through with American Idol (hmmm, think I said that last year too.) I voted for Melinda and LaKisha 10-20 times each week, and ...

DH is right, the average AI voter is probably under 16, and you know how determined kids that age can be. They probably vote until their little fingers are bleeding. Most adults are going to give up after a few minutes.

AI is definitely NOT a singing contest. If it was, Melinda would still be standing. It's nothing but a popularity contest pure and simple.

I'm also disgusted with Dancing with the Stars...

Maybe now that all these shows have had their season finales I'll get more work done.
