Go Melissa!

Tonight's the final episode of Canadian Idol. If Melissa doesn't win, I'll be crushed.

There have been some decidedly bad choices in the past. Remember in season one, when Toya and Audrey didn't even make the top 3, and then Ryan Malcolm won? Hmm...whatever happened to him, anyway?

Still, even the horny 15-year old girls shouldn't screw this one up. Rex is simply a piss poor singer. And he's not even good looking! What do they see in him?

Kevin and I voted for Melissa 20 times last night. If that's not enough, what is?

Twenty times? Are you sure that was enough? Good to learn that you're spending your free time so productively. :)

And feel free to reply to my comments. Don't hold back that righteous indignation. I no longer need to make randomly timed manual refreshes of your blog to see when there's been a change. I love technology. Have I said that lately?

Righteous indignation?

Last time you commented (which, incidentally, was on the Kelly Clarkson post...are we starting to see a pattern, hmmmm?) all I wanted to say was, "you rock my world Sam, I lurve you!" I figured that wouldn't be especially dignified, so I exercised restraint.

But, we know how long that usually lasts, right?

Melissa won! Hooray! I'm actually listening to commercial radio this morning, hoping I'll hear her song.

Ah, yes, I've so often heard that blogs really bring out the dignity in people.

I have no idea what's cool right now on the radio because I am all about getting CDs from the library or just listening to the same 25 tracks that have been on my MP3 player since March. I discovered the latest CD I want to buy through my *mother*. That said, Feist is awesome.

I have to ask this: if you have a Blogger account and you leave a comment on another Blogger user's blog, do you get notified when they reply to you? Because from the docs, it looks like no. And that makes me think Blogger is the lamest blog tool ever. Besides which, you get spam comments. WTF?

Feist *is* awesome. I found out about her on the CBC, so I'm not sure which is worse.

I did hear Melissa on Mix 99.9 today. It was pretty exciting, and a good excuse not to get out of bed. I'm not sure I agree with accepted wisdom that "Alive" is the best idol song ever, though. I think I prefered "Awake in a Dream." Theresa's version, that is.

I don't really know much about how the notifications work -- I do know that I get an e-mail whenever anyone leaves a comment on my blog, which is enough for self-centred little me. I don't think the comments are even threaded, so it's doubtful that you'd be able to get any kind of "reply" notification. That does seem kind of lame, but oh well, I still think Blogger has prettiest themes, which is why I chose it in the first place.

Still, you could ask Karyn, since I just replied to her under "Photos".

*dies laughing* So exciting you had to stay in bed, eh?

I guess I'm just used to feature-obsessed livejournal. But hey, Blogger lets you put in javascript so that's pretty cool.

Yeah! There's always a radio next to the bed. If I got out of bed, I might have missed it. I had other, more nefarious (and more exciting, too) reasons for wanting to stay in bed, but we won't get into those now.
