...and my girl, Alexandrea Lushington. Damn.
Hee hee, people look funny when they sing. Ah well, better luck next week.
...and my girl, Alexandrea Lushington. Damn.
I think Luke's looks saved him last week but after this week's whiny rendition of "Killer Queen" he'll be gone.The second guy is harder to predict. The obvious choice is Jason Yaeger but I think he'll be saved simply because he was so awful. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that...
...we'll be saying goodbye to Robbie Carrico. Between the attitude, the forgettable performance (seriously, does anyone remember what he sang?) and the rumors that he wears a wig, he's in major danger. Plus, do we really need to hear one more time that he was in a boy band?As far as the girls are concerned...
The obvious choice is Kady Malloy. Her Britney Spears impression was enough to save her last week but this week her poor song choice and uninspired vocals are going to give her the boot. As with Robbie, I'm going to be bold and predict that...
...Syesha Mercado will be bidding farewell to us. I really want to like her a lot, I do!! But she's not very humble and if you need to pick a song that forces you to belt each week...how much versatility do you have? So I could definitely see her going home and it would be an upset but not completely a surprise. I could totes be wrong on some of these choices but I'm going to be bold and say that's who the four outsted contestants will be!
I planned this big post on the Oscars but then, like the rest of America, grew completely uninterested with them. Seriously! Was I the only one?! Thank God it's Thursday because I am ready for the weekend...and hopefully a drama free weekend!
Bye Bye Colton! Good luck with your Ellen DeGeneres look alike contests!!Kelly Kapowski just left this morning and we had a really great visit. We went to see Spamalot, Legally Blonde, Spring Awakening, and Avenue Q and visited WTC, 30 Rock, and a few different neighborhoods so I feel like he got a really great idea of different places in New York. It was awesome to reconnect with him and while it was a little different than I thought it was going to be, we had a blast together.
More drama with the roommate situation but come this weekend everything should be clear and Dr. Mike should be moved in. Ding Dong the witch will be gone. They are exterminating today and tomorrow and part of Wednesday so this morning I lugged the two kittens to Page Six's apartment. Talk about a sight...me with three bags (my Jack Spade work bag, my overnight gym bag and a bag for the kittens' stuff) and two cat carriers stumbling down ninth avenue. Luckily Page Six lives only a few blocks away but still...it was drama. Thank God for him I would be totally fucked (Spring Awakening reference!!!) if it weren't for him.
Hot Damn I love this musical.
Off to get some work done. Hopefully I'll be able to hollaback later with some Oscar talk!!
Sailors not included. It was much more than I could afford to spend on a pair of jeans but she was intent on finding a nice pair that gave me an ass. And I think we succeded. All in all, it was a fantastic visit and I can't wait to see her again. I have a one night break and then Kelly Kapowski is visiting. Crazy!!! It'll be interesting to see him again but we've got some really great stuff planned so it should be a great time. I'm super excited for him to meet Page Six--I just wish DC Doug could be here so we could have a mini Utah reunion.
The one and ONLY picture we took her whole visit. Super cute though! Sigh, I miss her already.
The show itself was great, and included all of their hits. These five broads certainly know how to put on a show! They also sang their current single, "Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)." Well, apparently friendship does end and it'll be done as soon at the tour's over. The show was filled with great dancing and costumes and flashy flashy lights, but no real vocal feats were performed. Mel C, by far the greatest singer in the bunch, proved it with a few rifs here and there. Because we were so close, the seats in front of us were reserved for VIPs. Originally hoping for David Beckham, we had to settle for his offspring, Cruz. Yes, Cruz Beckham was in front of me. I was <---> this close to someone that was created with David Beckhams sperm. VERYNICE!
The best part of this story though--is that Cruz Beckham totally glared at me! The nanny was standing there holding him and he watched his mommy on stage for a bit (really I think he was just mesmerized by her robo-boobs) but for the most part he was staring at me and Page Six. It was very distracting. Now ya'll know I'm not crazy about kids but I was in a good mood so I waved at him and he furrowed his brow and GAVE ME A MEAN LOOK!! I was so offended! I dare to go out of my way and say hi to a child and the kid just glares at me. Lame. Then he had the audacity to go and poop his pants. I would like to go on record and say that Cruz Beckham? He sucks!
Also in attendance was Melanie Brown's baby also known as.....the bastard child of Eddie Murphy. It was funny because Mel's husband, Steven Belafonte, and her nanny were standing there together and he kept holding the baby, then giving it back. Holding it, then giving it back to the nanny. Everytime he did I would say to Page Six: "Here, take Eddie Murphy's baby." "Here, give me Eddie Murphy's baby." "Here, take Eddie Murphy's baby." Hilarious.
So that was the Spice Girls. I'm really glad I got the opportunity to see them before they retire forever and even happier I wasn't hypnotized by Posh Spice's robo-boobs. Oh, and a word to the wise? If you're on a dark, deserted street and you happen to run into Cruz Beckham? Run for your life--cause that bastard'll kick your ass.
I'm also losing someone else in my life and that is my roommate (see above). She got really freaked out by the thought of bed bugs and had a problem with the management all along. Seriously, she wrote a letter to the city because our intercom was broken and because we didn't have a carbon monoxide detector. She does know she lives in New York City, right? In Hell's Kitchen? This isn't Beverly Hills. Anyway, she's breaking the lease but now is super upset that the landlord is taking her security deposit. Um....you're refusing to pay rent--what else do you think they're going to do? So I have an open house on Sunday to try and find a new roommate and she stakes herself in the hallway and runs after potential roommates telling them how horrible the place is and how it's infested with bugs and the management sucks. Hey! Lady! I'm trying to help YOU out! I'm finding someone who will pay the rent so that the landlord doesn't take YOU to court! She just. Doesn't. Get. It. So I will be GLAD to have her out of my system and hopefully soon! I found somone named Mike (referred to hereafter as Dr. Mike due to his soon to be Ph.D in Psychology) and he's really great. Level headed, grown up, nice, what more could I ask for?
Last Wednesday BFF and I bought cheap tickets to "The Color Purple" on Broadway. Because the show is closing at the end of February I felt like I should see it and you know what? I was pleasantly surprised! Sure we made fun of the entire first act and sure Chaka Khan blew a big fat one and sure the lesbian stuff threw me off (was she a big lezzie in the book?) but by the end of the second act BFF and I were crying our eyes out. My initial response was "it was good for what it was but it wasn't all that" and but looking back I have to say it really "wasn't that bad." Solid B- for you Color Purple!!
Last Saturday I decided to try and get tickets to the sold out Mika concert with my friend EVT who is finally living in the NYC. EVT and I went to college together and were good friends for a while until he decided to have a quarter life crisis and ignore my calls. I'm happy to say that he has finally (finally!) figured some things out and he is the happiest I've ever seen him. We didn't get tickets but ended up having dinner together and it was fabulous. I had SUCH a good time laughing and recminiscing about the old times. Because of dinner with him I realized that going to Utah for Cassahondra's wedding in August would be an awesome time. I really miss the old USU times and hopefully there will be a bunch of people there in August (including Amanda, who I have yet to think of a nickname for and my wife Annette). I think I'm going to skip out on a cruise with my family in lieu of a Utah visit--I miss my friends far too much.
Have a big couple of weeks ahead of me. This week Kula is visiting, next weekend BFF Taylor is visiting and then the week after that Kelly is visitng. Yes, THAT Kelly. YIKES!! Enjoy your Super Tuesday everyone. I'm still undecided as to whom I'm voting for. I might want to get on that.
