Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

That shizz ain't right.

Okay, I may simply be a bit punchy from lack of sleep due to extreme overexcitement caused by last night's season finale of Veronica Mars, but DUDE. Honestly. All you have to do is change my last post to past tense, and you have my recap of last night's American Idol. NOT. KIDDING. Do it! You'll see! With the exception of my prediciton that Simon would absolutely hate both of Taylor's performances (I am pleasantly surprised that he acknowledged the beauty of Taylor's soulful rendition of In the Ghetto), I pretty much nailed the show. No, seriously. Talor, a spaz attack and then soulful? Check. Elliott? Ba-a-a-a-a-hing like a wee lamb, minus the cute and fluffy part? Check. Chris, shreiking at me and glaring? CHECK! and Kat, sassy and cuttin' loose? Check! Judges manipulating the America Idol voting public? You bet! (I may not have mentioned that yesterday, but it was everywhere implied, for reals.) So... hammer? Nail? Square hit? You know the rest.

Don't get me wrong, yo? I'm not bragging. All I'm saying is that if I can predict the show before it even airs, tell me... what is the point of actually watching? Huh? Why should I? Why?! Give me a reason, y'all, because Kat is SO gone tonight and Simon hates Taylor, so really, what's the friggin' point?

[PSA] And seriously. If you haven't been watching Veronica Mars, you're in luck. (Kelly, you are in even MORE luck! The Veronica Mars Season 1 DVD's are on the way! Woo!) Last night Veronica graduated from high school, helped her dad catch a child molester, and solved all this season's mysteries (who killed the busload of kids, who killed Curly Moran) plus one from the first season (who really raped her), so she will be starting fresh and mystery-free at college in the fall (if the CW renews, please God, please, oh, please?!). Of course, the mystery-free part will last-- at most--about five minutes into the Season 3 premiere (please God, please, if there's a Season 3, I will be good! and floss more often!), but still! Good times. It's dark. It's humor. It's dark humor! And I certainly didn't predict what was going to happen last night, that's all I'm saying. It BLEW. MY. MIND. (All I want is for the CW to pick it up, God! Is that too much to ask?! Huh? Oh, and world peace. Amen.)[/PSA]

WHAT? I was in the frigging bath! Jaysus.

Oh, the Veronica Mars thing. Fine, whatever. I'll have her marry Archie, or run off with Reggie or whatever. Now, come back when you're praying for starving kids in whatever part of the world I'm starving them lately.

Thank you.

GOD! Welcome! Wow! This is a surprise... Hey, while I have you on the "line" (just a little prayer humor there, God), I was wondering... what's up with the whole Paris Hilton phenomenon? And could you please find a way to stop K-Fed from procreating and wearing manpris? Oh, and world peace AND no more starving people anywhere (especially Nicole Ritchie, because DAMN-- pardon the expression). Amen.

You are right about AI, I fear Katherine is gone tonight.

Ok, look ... do you have any idea what my Day-Timer looks like? I mean, Jaysys, Mary and Joseph. You people get like four pissy little appointments on your plate and you're all "Oh, vicious day." Yeah, hard life, dork. Try having "Keep John Stamos's career afloat" on your frigging to-do list.

What you have to remember is that I do everything for a reason. Okay, not everything. Jessica Simpson getting famous? yeah, I was just fucking with ya.

Paris Hilton is one of my pet projects. She is actually her own Hell. VERY efficient, that.

K-Fed? Who is that? God, some things are so insignificant that even I dont notice, and I hear every sparrow fall.

And as for World Peace, I'm working on it. But before that, I have to give some guy named nick Lachey a gold record. Christ, who is running my calendar?

OK, Cat, you nailed it on an easy week: Elvis Week.

Let's see you predict how they'll perform for next week's theme: Gangsta Rap Week.

Will Taylor go with gray cornrows and spout "F*** Tha Police" by NWA? Maybe some "Straight Outa Compton"? Will a member of the Soul Patrol shoot down Elliot's retarded goat-mom or anyone with McPheever?

I hope they don't try to sound exactly like Eazy-E or Dr.Dre...they need to try to put their own spin on it. Of course, Paula will still love it.

A girl with whom I went to junior high and high school was on Veronica Mars. Maybe not anymore, though. She's on the new Kay Jeweler's commercial where she kisses the bald guy. Small world.

wordgirl, do you mean that you went to school with Corrine Bohrer (who plays Veronica's alcoholic absentee mother who stole all her college money)? If so, you will understand why I get a kick out of that BEST. MOM. EVER. Kay's Jewlers commercial when they air it during Veronica Mars, because Veronica's mom? Best ever? Not so much. :)

She also played a little boy named Rocky's mom on the now-cancelled Joan of Arcadia. And I honestly don't know why I know all this.
She's a Texas girl, right? Coolness.

Shaun, you make me laugh, as usual. Good to hear from you again.

dashababy and misty, wouldn't it be a kick in the pants if Chris left tonight?! That would really shake things up, now wouldn't it?

And no need to get snippy, GOD.

God just don't let John Stamos watch AI tonight and see his former wife in the audience with her new fiancee. I heart John Stamos. I do not want his feelings hurt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, you made me choose between world peace, end to starvation, and Chris being voted off. I hope you're happy. That's it for you. Don't bother buying lottery tickets for a while.

Cat,
Kristine is NOT going to be happy with you. Ooooooooooh, glad I'm not you.

Whoa, I'm in total utter shock! I did not see that one coming.

Cat, you jinxed him with that remark earlier. Oh my, you have the power. Scary.

Mom the Fonz prediction is that Taylor will win the whole friggin' thing. What do you think about that? I know Kristine didn't like it when she that and has not spoken to her since.
