AI was in Dallas tonight. I missed almost half the show because we were out bargain hunting. Loves me some Craigslist. Found and purchased and love some new (to us) furniture. It was meant for man-cave but we may end up using it as living room. Who knows! But still, it meant we got to see the son-in-law for a bit tonight, because what good is a big, strong, 6'4" son-in-law if he can't move furniture for you once in a while?
So meanwhile, once I settled in to watch the show and of course, didn't have the beginning DVR'd, we were almost all the way through with Day One. Missed it all except that the judge was ....??? I've already forgotten. Oh wait, it was Dougie Houser/Neal Patrick. I love that guy. Anyone see him in Harold & Kumar go to White Castle? I love that movie. A theme this year seems to be a lot of kids who can sing well but grew up sick. A young man with Tourette's syndrome was very good, and leave it to Dr. Houser to pick up on what was wrong with him. That's about all I saw of Day One.
Day Two was guest judge Joe Jonas, who again I am too old to know who he is or why he is important. I think he is this year's New Kids on the Block. No one stood out to me in particular from Day two. But I was busy scooting furniture across the room. That might have had something to do with it.
I think it was the Dallas auditions that Ms. Kymmie's sister-at-her-dad's-house drove down to try out for. The producers told her she wasn't ready yet (?) and maybe try again. Kym will correct me if I am wrong about that.
I know a couple of years ago, a friend's daughter tried out in Dallas and got through to sing in front of the panel (as I recall the story anyway), but I don't think she was ever aired on TV. Meanwhile, this girl, Ashley, is the daughter of Sister Carole's best good friend and has recently signed to a local record label and is singing/songwriting all over town. Not that we've made it out to see her in a long, long while, but we hope to rectify that soon. Meanwhile, go buy her CD and make her mom happy :)
Waving to everyone from a newish sofa ... cheers for now ya'll.
