Uh-oh. It's official. I realize I have been treading a fine line, you know, on the cusp between American Idol Afficionado and Overinvested Freak. Then, last night, I think I may have crossed over. To the Dark Side of the Force. Alas, it is true. Oh my, this is embarrassing, y'all. The fact is, I actually cried when Jessica was booted off. I cried! Over a reality TV show!
In my defense, I had JUST watched an especially harrowing episode of Law & Order: SVU. So maybe it was residual grief. But still! As Mamaramma pointed out, the other contestants (who were absolute sobbing messes last week when Mikalah was THANKFULLY eliminated), they didn't even shed a tear for Jessica! It was all, "Ho-hum, la di da... buh-bye, now." Interesting... Maybe she was really a diva in actuality, so they felt no sadness. Could it be? I never really saw an indication of this, but whatev. Or maybe they got in trouble with the producers for acting like big freaking bawl babies last week! We may never know.
But me? I'm in my living room sniveling into a Kleenex, snorting out between sobs (to no one in particular), "It's... just so... sad... you... know?" And I'm not even having my period!
To any family or concerned friends reading this post, it may be time to stage an intervention.

No tears here for Jessica. She had a great voice, but lacked something. She didn't have a shiver factor for me (in case I haven't mentioned this, I get shivers consistently with people who end up at the top). Right now my shivers have been reserved for Carrie, Nadia (but not so much lately) and Vonzelle (especially from what little I saw in the recap last night). Boys? I miss Mario.

I have a three degrees of Kevin Bacon for you that I thought you would appreciate more than anyone in the world: My friend, Jacob went to Boston Conservatory School of Music with Constantine. Jacob was Constantine's music theory tutor. After graduation, they both moved to NY and had talked about starting a band together, but nothing ever came of it. People who currently talk to Constantine say that C. is surprised that he's made it this far, that he told his band not to break up cause he figured he'd be back soon. Also, a couple of years ago, C. got cast as the rocker in the national tour of Rent, and told his band that instead of breaking up, they should come with him on the road, shack up in his hotel room, and whenever he had to promote the show, he'd also plug the band and say they were playing at whatever local bar in town... so he's a pretty good self promoter. Also, word is the Amer. I. producers have called the band and checked on their interest/availability to see if they would want to go on the Top 10 tour this coming summer with Constantine.
In other Am. Idol gossip that I got from my New Yorker friend, Mario Vasquez was spotted walking out of P. Diddy'''''s Bad Boy Enterprises the other day. Record deal???? On Regis and Kelly, he said he couldn't talk about anything.
Sorry for the long comment!

Mario is a dork. He was a talented dork though. That's all I'm saying.
