First off, am I the only one who thought Heather Mills was a bit bitchy in her departure? She practically blamed the chick judge Karianne (spelling). Give me a break. I tried, I really, really tried to warm up to her, and every time she opened her mouth I asked myself, “What the hell was Sir Paul thinking?” I’m glad she’s gone. Now the hard part: I like everyone left, even Billy Ray. I think either Apolo or Laila will dance away with the title. That Laila is something else. And Apolo and Julianne? I just love watching them.
Now on to AI. I’m not really in the mood to do a detailed recap. In fact, as I watched them tonight, I don’t think I wrote any more than two lines each. No one was awful, and the stand out to me was Jordin. I think she will be the next American Idol. I think Phil stepped up as well. He’s growing on me. It was kind of weird not having Sanjaya there. I have to admit he sure made things interesting.
Now on to RT. I’m off in the wee hours of the a.m. for Houston. I’m actually looking forward to it. Mostly because REDEMPTION is in the can, and my agent loves it (always a very good sign) and I don’t have to start revising JADED until I get back.
I’m looking forward to hanging out with Hilary, my friend Sharon Long and Liz Kreger. Allison and Sylvia will be there too. Lot’s of familiar faces, and I’m bound to meet a few new ones. I’ll keep y’all abreast of the happenings. 🙂
Oh, speaking of Hilary, she received all of the First Line finalists’ entries safe and sound. So? Now we wait. She’s usually pretty quick about theses things. So hopefully some good news soon.
With that, my dears, I am off to finish my packing and then attempting to get about two hours sleep.
