WHAT?! An HOUR for an American Idol results show? REALLY? Good lord.
So, I finally got a chance to watch the elimination show and oh my goodness I just about choked I was laughing so hard! While eating chips! And super spicy hot salsa! Which... ouch?! Anyhoos, other than a few minor hiccoughs (Hello? Clive Davis? This is not the Academy Awards! Someone cue the music! Please! SOMEONE CUE THE MUSIC!), this was a pretty solid piece of fluffy AI goodness. And if I busted a tear or two when Elliott was eliminated it was only because I was probably still choking on one of those stupid tortilla chips and I can't help it if I get way emotional when I am totally PMS-ing and in desperate need of anything in the chocolate family so SHUT! UP!
Taylor dancing with Kat and Elliott during his song. Very cute. They all honestly seem to like each other.
Paula Abdul crying with Elliott. It was like her face was melting, guys! For serious! FREAKY.
Kat singing "Think" which is one of my very favoritest Aretha Franklin tunes, like, ever. How hot was that?! So, so hot, that's how much! With the shoelessness? And the amazing voice? And the table dancing? And the sassy leaning over to sing to Randy? And the coyly talking to Simon during the song? And doing that cute little hop in a circle thing while singing? HOT!
Oh, and Kat Snaked at her old high school. She SNAKED! Did you see?! Did you?! Kat knows how to Snake. Wicked cool.
Simon picking at his lip and totally ignoring Clive Davis during Clive's excruciatingly boring two-hour-long speech.
The Elliott fan down in Richmond, VA, who I shall forever remember fondly as Crazy Dancing Camera Lady, who could not freaking hold it together long enough to take a damn picture. Boy is she gonna be PISSED when she realizes she didn't get the shot. Oh, and that AI showed her wig the hell out and fall apart on national TV in front of millions of viewers... Heh. Heh heh. BWAH! hahahaha! hahahaha! hohoho! hahahaha! Hoo! OH MY LORD, y'all. I had to keep rewinding because Tanner and I couldn't stop rolling around on the bed laughing hysterically, holding our stomachs, with tears rolling down our faces... And then we had to reenact her crazy jig of hysterical joy for each other and laugh again and watch it some more, and then we called Hannah and showed her (twice) and then we reenacted it for her and she reenacted it for us and we all laughed until we almost puked. Ahh. Seriously. These are the moments, guys. That's what family is ABOUT. See? AI's bringing people together and whatnot! SEE WHAT YOU'RE MISSING, KRISTINE?!
I can't wait until TGIM gets home. There will be a mad rush to the door to see who can get to him first with the reenactment of Crazy Dancing Camera Lady's jig of hysterical joy. It's gonna be crazy because my kids may look all sweet and innocent, but they can SHOVE like the dickens and will probably trample me in their effort to reach TGIM first. Whatever. Like I couldn't dropkick the lot of them. But I won't! Because that would be WRONG.
I'm off to cue up the TiFaux in readiness for TGIM.

I may or may not have cried at Elliotts departure.
Oh, and you have convinced me to check out this Veronica Mars...always looking for another television show to become addicted to!

I second that Charlotte.
Video, now! Oh and the puking part too. Too funny. I luz ya Cat.
Honestly, I am over AI since my baby sister has made it clear that I will be dead to her too if I watch anymore of the season. I did sneak a peek or 2 but that's about it. I think Mom the Fonz was right all along, it's going to be Taylor to win it all.

I hope that this lull in blogging means that you are feverishly working on the "Crazy Dancing Camera Lady" video. **keeping my fingers crossed**
