This was the other layout I made for the Scrap Nook contest & was torn between which to enter. I liked this one better but worried about the fragmented sentences (since full sentences were a requirement) that's why I chose the one I posted yesterday. Sentence structure or not I liked this one better & it was much more unique.... oh well there were so many amazing layouts entered. If you have a chance go to the Scrap Nook. You'll see ones shaped as guitars, rainbow with clouds, birthday cake with candles, etc.
Ok so if you are brave continue reading & delve into the madness of a total crazed woman.I was so tired last night after the events of the day. It was nice just to veg out -- I was on reality tv overload.... I'm laying in bed with the laptop on - catching up on email, websites, & blogs...
8:00 American Idol final performances come on. I'm a Kris fan. He & Allison were my faves from the start. I think Adam can sing & will have a great career - Kris is just more my style.
So thankfully the first hour of Dancing With the Stars was just rehashing.... but that didn't stop me from clicking during commercials. I'm not a fanatic about that show but this season I really liked it & watched it more often & I actually did vote on Monday for little Shawn.
Back to Idol... what the heck was Kara thinking with that song. It was in one of Simon's favorite sayings "dreadful". It was filled with cliches & the key, oh my, was almost painful for both of them. Surely other people than the 3 writers listened to this song. One of them should have said something. Is it just me?
So at 9:00 I have my pretty blue Palm cell phone in hand texting "vote" to 5702 over and over and over. I saved it as a template so I could just hit the button 2x & 10 votes are sent. I even twitter about texting (I'm just getting into the twitter thing) GO KRIS
9:20 I'm really multitasking I have Dancing With the Stars on waiting for the winner announcement, cell phone in hand still sending text messages, & Paperclipping Live on ustream open & ready for Noell & Dedra to start while chatting with other paperclippers.
My hubby walks in & said "I want to watch the Tudors on demand". I just look up at him & say nothing.... he then says "I'll watch it in the living room" ha ha ha I must have looked like a crazed loon. He never gives in that easy & doesn't pick up on the unspoken clues unless they hit him like a ton of brick lol.
I always enjoy Paperclipping Live & look forward to it all week. Noell is so talented & the women in the chat room are just a delight. So last night Noell had Dedra Long on the show with her. I call them the Dynamic Duo. They are both amazing scrapbookers & so artistic but the best part is the "banter" between them. Their friendship really plays well over the web. It's just plain fun to watch. (you can watch recorded shows if you missed it)
They were also very sweet to mention me & my work several times which caused a shower of lovely comments from the "peeps" in the chat. I was very touched. Thanks so much.
They were doing a scrap lift of one of the members layouts they found in the gallery. I can't wait to see the finished layouts on the blogs. They both have very different styles so it was interesting to see their takes on a challenge.
All the while I'm watching/type chatting on the computer I'm glancing up at the TV - DWTS yay Shawn won! I really didn't think she would pull it off but good for her. She is a doll.
It's 10:00 & I'm still hitting the button 2x on my cell phone to send my 10 votes for Kris. I wonder how many votes I actually cast in that 100 minutes.... (I just went & checked my AT&T bill when you hear however many votes Kris gets for the night 1, 360 are from ME! That is too scary. I think I need an intervention.... "like" I'm a middle age teenybopper.
I finally stopped at 10:44 when hubby came back in the room with a look like "please can I go to bed now & not have to listen to scrapbookers giggle & talk about some embellishment or what adhesive to use...." I picked up on that look with & said my goodbyes (reluctantly) before the show ended (I was just to lazy to get up & boot up the big computer) & put my cell phone on charge.
I'm shaking my head as I'm typing this... I'm a grown woman. I don't know why I get caught up with AI each year. I just love that show & there are many talented people. I am sentimental & always want to see the dreams fulfilled. It's a life changing opportunity to all who get in the finals. I love music & really enjoy hearing the contestants sing their songs for the first time. When it's a hit cheering for them & cringing & genuinely feeling bad for them when it's a miss.
I hope I'm not alone & but if I am oh well that's me... with age I've learned to accept & embrace who I am & what I like/don't like. That really is big since I'm a bit of a people pleaser. How did I get here with a heavy self topic from reality tv? I better quit or who knows where my babble will take us.
