Last year, was by far, my favorite A.I in the history of the show. A.I. is what got us through our mundane jobs, it's what helped us make better/more friendships. It wasn't the show I loved, (Although, I was a David Cook fan FROM THE BEGINNING!!!) it was what the show brought to my life.
It was reading Gin's blog stuff that she emailed about the best and worst of the night. It was back and forth banter between J.A., Gin, Mary, etc. on who sucked and who didn't. It was creating your own commentary and defending your favorite idol wannabe, and of course making fun of KFC and her horse story.
Now, here I am, 2 and about a half hours away, and it just doesn't feel the same. I mean there are some clear front runners, and some total freaks...that if they make it, will be better to make fun of than Paula, but it's still not the same. I don't really even watch it. I Tivo, then fast forward through all the dumb crap, which includes all those cheesy commercials.
So, I guess I will watch it when it gets to the Top 12, and perhaps I will vote a time or 2, but it will never again be the way it was in 2008 at EDS, Winchester,KY...Holla!
