You kids have fun in LA, and don't do anything I wouldn't do!

So, I'm watching tv for the first time in quite a while, and American Idol for the first time ever. My parents are in the audience, thanks to the good people at Coca-Cola. Thanks to using their Regal Movie card, they won a trip to LA to see the two shows being filmed.

Until they won the trip they had never watched the show, but Mom watched a couple of times to see what it was like. I think Doyce probably would have been happy to take the trip, but skip the show, but Linda was super excited about seeing the show. It is something new and different and she is always up for new experiences. I'm just glad the finals are all country music all the time. What if it had been rap???

I love that my parents are up to all this travel and go out and have fun and try new things. They spent all those years raising us, keeping their noses to the grindstone, and now they are living large. I love them, and think they are fabulous. They are real American Idols, just good, good people.


  1. What did you think of the show? I watched one season of the English version when I was living in the UK and I remember voting for somebody called Will, but I've never watched it since. Opinion?

  2. Not my cup of tea. They sang well, but all the bullshit with the SmarmyHost and the Judges was icky.
