What?! I have a blog?!

Blog posts have been few and far between lately. I won't apologize for it. I refuse. See the sidebar? "Blogging without obligation" means that I don't have to feel bad for not posting every day, every other day, or even regularly for that matter. Be that as it may, I know that I have regular readers who feel a twinge of disappointment - that they quickly get over - when they see I haven't posted anything new. Here is a list of excuses for why I haven't been to my blog - or your's - lately.

1. Facebook is so much fun. Connecting with friends, new and old. I'm even playing games and talking smack with a few. I've been defriended and even defriended a few myself. I hate it when people make me a friend and don't bother to leave me a little message. If I've done that to you...I'm sorry. I never said that I wasn't a hypocrite.

2. I've been a busy, busy mommy. My boys have been playing basketball for which I have been the coach and the team manager. Today was our last game. Whew. Fun. But glad it's over.

3. More busy mommy stuff. Mini Me has been in cheerleading. That's also over. Note to self: Don't put the kids in sports at the same time. They must take turns with the extra-curricular activites.

4. Ever since I did the radio show with Adam and Rick, blogging seems so passé. I would love to do a Bollywood radio show. Play movie soundtracks and talk about Bollywood movie news and stars, do movie reviews and such. I thought that I had made all my wildest dreams come true, maybe I have some dreams yet to be fulfilled, afterall.

5. ::thinking:: I got nothin'.

And there you go. That is the great thing about blogging. You don't have to have a witty ending or good grammar or correct spelling, for that matter, as witnessed on this blog. When you have nothing left to just stop.

Anniethology on Idol: Idol, Whooz ur daddy? Season 8, Part 3

Maybe you were looking for my review tonight, maybe you weren't. Fact is, I forgot. I am so unmoved by tonight's contestants that I forgot to open the laptop and share my opin with you all. If you put a gun to my head... you'd have to pull the trigger, because I can't pick a favorite tonight.

I can say that Kai makes me want to hide my children. He's creepy-deepy. I get a grody vibe off of that guy. He is a cardboard sign away from begging on a corner.
I'm doing "Idol, Whooz ur daddy?" in reverse tonight! Cuz I'm crazy like that!
Kai + a bar of soap = Eric Benet with a girlfriend! See Kai? Do you see your potential with a little hygiene?

Sarah Jessica Parker, The Good Witch of the North, Joy Behar and Tin Foil Hats

Joy Behar has never had an original thought in her haggard, jaded life. She stole my joke! That hack said on"The View" today that SJP looked like the Good With of the North. I'm going to start wearing my tin foil hat again, but this time I am going to fashion it into a crown.

Annie on KAFM community radio.

Click here to listen to the podcast of today's radio show.

I brought refreshments and took my bathroom break before the show. The "do" was easily refluffed after the use of headphones. Luckily, I did not have to test the compassion of my co-hosts by fainting. I refrained from "shout-outs," but it was reallllly tempting.
Thanks to my co-hosts. Thanks to everybody who listened. Thanks to makers of Throat Coat Tea, for helping me get through the show, despite my sore throat and a special thanks to bloggy buddy forever, Heffalump, for calling into the show and slow pitching me a softball of a question that I could swing at!

Annie on Idol: Instant Reviews

Contestant #1 whose name isn't worth remembering. JPL sang this song better. She looks like Feather Tuscadero beat up Betty Boop and stole her top.

Ricky-Love the velvet blazer. Good choice. Hard to go wrong with a crisp white shirt and nice fitting blazer. Ricky sings...zzzzzzz. Simon and I seem to be on the same wavelength tonight.

Alexis Grace- Cutie!I like to cheer on the mommies. I like the red lips. Her face looks like a young Dolly Parton. Good job Mamacita.

Ryan is so awkward on the fly.Brent Keith- I see a dimple. Guess who's going back to his hick town. Did Paula really hold up Buckie Covington as a success?! Ha! Simon prempted me.

Stevie Wright- Oh no! Starting off as atrain wreck. Experiencing physcial discomfort. Terrrible song choice. Karoke at a friends birthday party.

Anoop!- A little eyebrow grooming could go a long way. First four guy so far. He is going to get way more than the Desi vote.I would love to see him in an ice cream white suit.

Casey Carlson- Hello? Who is calling please? Disney? Yeah, hold on Casey is right here.

Oil Rigger- We've seen this song performed better on this show before. He has good moves for a big boy.

Ann Marie Boskovich - She could sell floss and lip gloss. Good teeth, good lips. Didn't like the song...finish strong though.

Steven Fowler- sang "I Want to Rock With You" but he forgot the metallic outfit that made this song great.

Ms. Coco Pants Tatiana- How did she make it and the Osmond didn't? This song just made Whitney Houston go back to crack!

Mejor dicho Senorita Pantalones Locas.

Danny Gokey- Most confindent performer of the night. I'm not a fan, but he did good.

3 Best Performances in my not so humble and usually right opinion: Alexis Grace, Anoop, and Danny.

Talk radio is not ready for me

....and I'm not quite ready for it.

I've been invited to be a guest co-host for a techie-type radio show this week. What I lack in knowledge of the subject, I will more than make up for in charisma. The other hosts, Adam Cochran and Rick Castellini have no idea of the pandoras box they are about to open putting a microphone in front my mouth.

It's been my personal philosophy in life to take advantage of every offered experience and not let my insecurity get in my way. That being said, I do have few reservations and/or questions on what to expect and how to prepare for my first radio gig:

1. Can I bring refreshments into the box?

2. Is it a box or booth or sound room or studio?

3. Do I have to wear the headphones? I'm afraid they'll crush the do.

4. Can I give "shout-outs?" Holla to my homies!

5. Will there be bathroom breaks?

6. Is techie spelled with a "y" or "ie"?

7. What is the difference between a "techy(ie) and a computer geek?

8. If I faint will my co-hosts seek immediate medical attention or will they wait until the show is over?

9. Does this gig include dental coverage?

10. Does Sean Hannity know that I will be in direct competition with his time slot and does he care?
I'll answer this one... I don't think so.
To listen to my talk radio debut online, go to this Wednesday from noon-1 p.m MST.

Anniethology on Idol: Idol, Whooz ur daddy? Season 8, Part 2

I've been a busy lady lately, but not too busy to fire up the "Idol, Whooz Ur Daddy?" macheen and crank out another DNA match for our A.I. contestants.

Pugsley from the original "Addams Family"+a pin cushion= Nathaniel

Version 2.0 for Chellie and B.

I hate the Tooth Fairy!

The downside of having trusting, faithful, loyal children is that, after what feels like a jillion missing teeth later, they still believe in the Tooth Fairy. Whether my ten-year-olds deep down think she is real or still believe in the process-put tooth under pillow, get money-is besides the point, I'm still paying them $$ for losing teeth.

I've been delinquent in my Tooth Fairy duties as of late (that's nothing new). So, I tried to come up with something extra special. Despite the $$, I love that my ten-year-old boys will still hold hands with me in public, they still love stuffed animals, and the still believe in the Tooth Fairy.

(not my picture. taken from the internet)

Tonight, I spent 45 minutes learning how to fold a dollar into a heart. Too bad that blanking Tooth Fairy is going to get all the credit.

Anniethology on Idol: Idol, Whooz ur daddy? Season 8, Part 1

Due to the success of last year's "Idol, Whooz ur daddy?" posts, the budget has gone up for this season. I am a busy woman who doesn't have the time for such frivolous analysis, so have acquired the help of a macheen to do the DNA matches for me. I put pictures of the contestants in the macheen and it provides the closest possible matches. I have to say the that macheen is a lot more brutal than I ever was. Sometimes the macheen is unable to find DNA matches for the Idols with actual people, so it will pick cartoon characters, animals, or inanimate objects.

This contestant is already gone-ja. She'll have to go home and cry on the shoulders of her daddy, Axl, and her mommy, Rainbow Bright.
Is Julie Brown sitting in Pee Wee's playhouse?

I don't understand this one. The macheen picked a crab and a brown belt. What's up with that? Something must be wrong with the wiring. I may need to look into that.

Fortunately, I know my Bollywood. Anoop, has been matched with Bollywood superstar Abhishek Bachchan and a laundry basket.

Lucky, lucky Adam. He has been matched with Monchichi, much like our boy "Archie" was last year and Michael "Hey kids rock and roll" Damian. Who wouldn't want to look like Michael Damian? Hello?!

Because I love you and I want you to be happy

Winter pudge getting you down? Are you hating everything in your closet and how you look in it?

Here are a couple of no-fail items that are on sale right now, online at the Coldwater Creek Outlet, that will take your attitude from blah to fabulous, even if your hips are telling the secret that you single-handedly finished off the seven-layer dip from your Super Bowl party.

Trust me, now. I wouldn't lead you astray. I get nothing from CCO for plugging these items. I bought them, have them in my home, put them on and skipped around in front of my full length mirror, I was soooo happy to have them. I want the same happines for you.

This black Ponte Pencil skirt is a steal at $14.99. The seaming, which is hard to see in the pic is very figure flaterring. The fishtail detail in the back is super flirty. And Ladies, I am telling you it's sooo forgiving.

Okay, I know what your thinking. You are afraid to take my word for it, you are afraid to shop online because it might not fit and who wants to go through the trouble of shipping things back and forth. I hear ya. I do. But these, my friend, these sassy red slingbacks cannot be passed up. They run true to size and you don't have to wear Spanx to get them on. Hello?! Look at them! You can put a price on red hot fabulousness and it's $20.99.

Still incredulous? How does an extra 25% off or free shipping sound? I went to and used a coupon code at checkout that took an extra discount off. See? Do you see? How much I love you? Do you?! And I don't want anything in return. I'm a giver. I just want you to be happy.

((((BIG HUGS from me to you))))))))
