♥ Gone but not Forgotten ♥

we'll miss you!!!

Andrew Garcia, my friends . . . kicked off American Idol last night. The day has finally come. I was in some way prepared for it, as I know that this whole pageant is just whittling the days away until Crystal Snidesox stands on the final stage, but I just wasn't really ready for it yet.

(For the record, I think that Crystal Bowersox has a freaking amazing, powerhouse voice . . . I just think she is a little full of herself, needs an injection of charm and/or personality, and that she sounds the same in every song).

Andrew took it like a champ. He showed the perfect amount of emotion, smiled that big sweet smile, and was incredibly gracious to everyone . . . what a dearheart! I mean seriously, he's SO sweet. And I just love his tender growly voice--it's so much more unique to me than anyone else's voice. Admittedly, his Hound Dog rendition was a little eh, but wtf was he eliminated before Tim Jonas-hair Urban? I guess the tweens are keeping him around cause they think he's good-looking. Whatevs.

So long, Andrew! American Idol won't be the same without you!


Guess what this Saturday is? PROM! I can't wait to see all my kiddos dressed up in their pretty (or at least brightly colored) dresses & tuxes and walk around the dance floor insisting that they stop grinding doggy style! It's gonna be amazing. One of my students said to me the other day: "Ms. Kiefer, will you go to prom with me?" I responded, "Uh, NO." Him: "Pleeeease? I'll take you to Elephant Bar!"

Ha! Classy . . .

Happy almost Friday!

Oh! And check out Micaela's amazing giveaway here. Not only is the giveaway fantastic (chalkboard mug, Keep Calm & Carry On journal, postcard, bunny buttons, black bow necklace!), but she and her blog are delightful. I read it every day!

I too was said to see Andrew go. I still can't believe Tim is sticking around.
And about Toms shoes - they run true to size. Go get 'em! They're amazing!

OH NO!! Have it TiVo'd, haven't had time to watch either one this week. Oh well, will have to "pretend" while I watch with the hubby. Andrew was starting to grow on me, think it was your influence. I see what you mean about Crystal. Side note - figs are not my fav's by any stretch but they have grown on me. Like you. Love all fruit.

its simple love said...

I saw him sing "Straight Up" Online and I was blown away - I loved his rendition of that song. That's a shame that he was booted off. :(

Thank you for your lovely comment :) How interesting that writer's should have at least 5 notebooks. That is great! Well that makes me feel better for having so many notebooks.
