When I gave birth to my three children, I went from a being free-wheeling, fun-loving, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-capris kind of gal, who could hop in a car and go at a moment’s notice to a diaper bag-hauling, over-protective, sleep deprived, germaphobe with a Super Woman complex. Sound dramatic? Sound familiar? Click here to read more.

I will never bet my blog on anything ever again, until the next season of American Idol. I won't be deceived twice or thrice.
There are some happenings around the blogosphere.
This one is having a birthday!
This one is going through quite a change.
This one was the victim of a crime and is daring enough to post her weight.
This one, 28 years ago, had hair to envy! Don't worry, girl. What goes around comes around and when that style comes back, we are gonna be ready with our hot rollers!

I think what hurts the most is that I wrong. Read it again. I was wrong. I'm never wrong when it comes to A.I, except this time. I pride myself on being able to predict who will stay and who will go home. The producers set us up for an upset and I fell for it. I'm humiliated.
That's where I have been for the past few days, wallowing in my own humiliation. I could care less which David won, I just wanted to be right.
Thanks for all the nice comments. It's nice to know that if I actually had the guts to pull the plug, I would be missed. So, all of you who bet I would be back, you are right!
This is one Mormon you can bet on.

It's nice to be able to read strictly for enjoyment, again. My love for Bollywood as filtered into my choices of literature.

This picture could be a scene from the first few pages of the book.
I don't know what I am going to read next. I am willing to take suggestions. What are you going to read this summer?

It's obvious to me who the American Idol producers want to win. They put their money into David Cook! I think, that they think, in order to keep American Idol relevant, David Cook needs to win this whole thing. Another "cute kid," like Jordan Sparks, can't win again or they will lose credibility.
David A. So cute, he is hard to criticize, but I saw something on Oprah yesterday that made it all clear for me. Oprah had on "the worlds smartest, most talented kids." She had on a young Philipino girl who could belt out Whitney Houston songs. Although she did an amazing job mimmicking the sound, it lacked the soul, feeling, magic, and life experience Whitney brings to her music. This girl was just a really good parrot.
Don't throw tomatoes, but I feel that at this point David A. is in parrot mode. When he is older, falls in love, get's his heart broken, pays for his own toilet paper, deals with fame, he will become an artist, not just a good singer. The long and short of it... he needs to mature.
Syesha does not want to be the American Idol. Tonight, she tried out for a Broadway show. That is why she picked the song she did. She doesn't want to be a singer, she wants to be an actress.
We should all give her the chance to do that.

Don't try to dress him up and make him something he's not. I don't want to see Jim with Mandy
Moore. I don't want to see him play football with George Clooney. I just want Jim to be Jim, be Pam's fiancee, look at the camera and shrug his shoulders. That's it. That's all. No more. Just let Jim be Jim.
