Did anyone NOT watch American Idol last night?

So, I'm a recent convert to facebook. I converted from rebelling against it and now I'm hittin' google up left and right trying to find a 'facebook addicts' support group. It is WAY too much fun and I've gotten back in contact with tons of old friends. Having dinner on Friday night with a fabulous friend from high school...love meeting pals over sushi! :)

One thing I thought was hilarious last night while on facebook was that 99% of the people on my friends list updated their statuses to read that they were watching American Idol. I'm thinking the only 'show' that will get more viewers will be Obama's inauguration. Our country's priorities...not so sure they are that bad....we need some laughter in this crazy world these days.

Anyone as fascinated by Planet Earth as we are? Lots of deals on the series HERE.

Anyone freaked by the Valentine's Day ads everywhere? I'm still in denial that we're not counting down the days to Christmas. Where's that Delorean from Back to the Future when you need to go back in time a bit? Or rather, where's the gadget that can slow time down a little? For those of you who are interested in Valentine's gifts...
$5 off any order of $25 or more at Limoges Jewelry. Enter code SALECLEAR

I like the idea of a trip instead of a gift.

I didn't watch it. I feel so bad for the terrible singers.

Mandy said...

LOVE it. These auditions are my favorite part of Idol. In fact, I rarely tune in during the actual "season" after the 12 make it. Is that wrong?

Sandy Toes said...

I watched it..so funny!!! Some of those people amaze me...I am already routing for the man who is "blind"..his voice was wonderful!

I had Bunco instead, so maybe I'll catch it online. I really like it once they've weeded out the bad ones. How's the new judge thing working???

Generally I watch the first few weeks of American Idol--where they audition folks--and the last few weeks (when the competition gets tough).

And I love that you have Planet Earth today. It's such a fantastic show.

NJDecorator said...

I usually do't watch until they are about halfway through - I don't like the meanness at the beginning.

Lynette said...

Can you believe I have never watched American Idol!
Oh and I will meet you over sushi anyday.

Jen said...

Totally a fan!!!!!

Brooke said...

I am an American Idol fan. Yes I am. All I can say is thank you DVR!!! I don't know what I ever did without you.

Brooke said...

Oh and I am on facebook. I got really addicted when I first signed up but the excitement and fun kind of wore off for me. I would WAY rather blog. Still it is a great way to find old friends.

~Trish~ said...

Facebook is fun :) Add me!! I had to DVR it last night, so much going on. David Cook is from the KC area, where I am around so it's a big ta-do here. Tonight's Idol is from the KC auditions so I will have to watch!!

Tiffany said...

I guess I'm in the minority when I can say I did not watch American Idol last night. Oh well!!! he he he

Michelle said...

Glad your back. I did watch AI last night and I couldn't believe that girl showed up in a bikini and they actually got her to bounce up and down.

michelle b. said...

Watched it and loved every second...even the uncomfortable embarassing moments. Too bad some of those people don't have true friends who keep them from making fools of themselves. lol

nicole in nc said...

Just found your blog. A friend of yours who is a friend of mine saw your link on your facebook and emailed it to me. Now I'm thinking I should get in on this facebook stuff!!

I love it! I shop online most of the time and need help finding good deals.

Pennies In My Pocket said...

Nicole, who is your friend? and WELCOME! :-)

~melody~

Nerdy Jess said...

I DO NOT watch that show, blah.

I am on facebook too! You should add me, since you know my name from emails and stuffs ;)

I'm glad your back, FINALLY--sheesh hehe.

angie said...

I can't remember what season I watched last, but since AI is everywhere I still know what's going on!

I love looking at all the Valentine's stuff at stores, but Jingle Bells is still on my cell phone. I'm conflicted!

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

The Planet Earth series is amazing!

How cool you are catching up with an old friend!

CrYsTAL said...

LOL seriously where have you been, LOL.
I love to watch american idol, although I am not an addict, I can miss an episode and watch it later, You know. I did not watch it last night though cause hubby and I had to prioritize, we had to get rid of cable, so now I try to find other ways to watch things I like, LIke Desperate Housewives, LOL.

Firefly@www.firefly-shop.org said...

HEY I didn't know you got back to the bloggy world, I'm glad you're here...we've missed you :)

Kelsey said...

I may be the only person in America that didn't watch American Idol last night, or tonight for that matter. I just don't like the show - it bores me. I know, I know, I'm strange LOL.

I guess I never started watching it because I wasn't allowed TV during the week, so I never got caught in the AI bug. I'll gladly sit down and watch "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List" with you though!

Are You Serious! said...

♥ I could take it or leave it in the beginning stages. So of the people that get on there I seriously don't get but.... Some of it is entertaining mostly the reactions from the judges! :)

eetomost said...

i'd rather watch American Idol. Personally, i like the girl from memphis because she was the only one who was great! AND because I'm from MS 2 hours away from Memphis could be another reason, but she was good:)

Michele said...

Welcome back! Yep, I watched it last night and am watching it now.

Joelle said...

Yep I used to LOVE American Idol, and while I'm currently watching it - I'm reserving my love until I see something worth it, so far underwhelmed this season. Siigh.

Thank you for the awesome tips especially the Resturants.com one! Awesome!

Happy Thursday! Stopping by from SITS!

It's genuinely very complicated in this active life to listen news on Television, thus I only use the web for that reason, and get the most recent news.
