I rarely watch T.V. anymore. It's not that I don't want to. I love to be entertained. Really, I do. But these days, with the constant programming going on in my head, I would rather spout my own stories (thus helping me achieve my ultimate goal of becoming the most narcissistic person I know) than watch stories on television. There is one show however, that always manages to pull me away from the inner workings of my mind and back to the long neglected spot on the couch. That show is American Idol. Perhaps it is my love of music, perhaps I secretly have a thing for Simon, perhaps I enjoy seeing new talent discovered and the raw emotion it creates in hopeful future stars. I admit, it is all of those things. But I must confess to one more...I am drawn to American Idol because I love to laugh. I LOVE to laugh. And, boy, do I! Especially during these first few weeks. I want to personally thank all the American Idol contestants who make complete and total fools of themselves purely for my entertainment. I know most of them do it just to get on television and are fully aware of the obvious fact that they can't sing. I'm okay with this knowledge. I'm perfectly fine with it as long as they can make me laugh. So please, don't let the fact that the whole world will mock you for days on end stop you. The more tone deaf the better, I say. Sing, people, sing (preferably on television so that I can laugh at you).
Yes, Simon, that's how I feel and I love it!
