What silly women we are! Cleaning the house like mad before our friend comes over. A friend we've known since the sixth grade, who doesn't care if we have a clean house. A friend who has three small children of her own, and we know the combined chaos that will be caused by all 7 children in the same vicinity will completely wipe out any evidence of a clean house, but we do it anyway. We clean.
And then the friend comes, and with her comes pleasant memories! Memories of mutual respect, admiration, and love for each other. Memories of a distant life, lived in a small farming community amongst the Jackiest of all Jack-Mormons. Memories of the good, the bad, the ugly, and the down-right beautiful. We talk about these memories, about our new lives, about our husbands, our children, and our homes. We discuss politics, blogging, the Gospel, and other friends (but no gossip! I swear! I promise!). We are constantly interrupted by the 7 children, and we forgive the interruptions because we know they will happen, regardless of our efforts to convince them that Yes! They want to be in the playroom the entire 6 hours!
Then our friend leaves, and we are sad, only because we had so much more to talk about. But we are happy, because we know we will see our friend again this summer, and hopefully many, many more times in the future.
I knew it. I knew it, dear reader, and you can accuse me of gloating. And being silly because most of you knew it, too.
David versus David is gonna be fun! I really hope that it all goes well and there isn't any out-of-tune-idge because I will scream and throw something at the TV if there is...
I really loved watching each of their visits to home, and their "journeys" through AI. It was kind of sweet how all three of them cried with emotion and were surprised by their fan bases. Very sweet.
The commercial/Ford video was funny, but only because their acting was so bad. Loved it!
Fantasia was just...just...kind of insane, really, don't you think? The look on Simon's face said it all. She did more dancing than singing, and when she did sing, it was just a few short things and some really scream-y notes and then what the heck was up with the guy singing in the balcony who had no face?! Seriously, that was just weird. And wrong. Same with that kiss she was laying on Ryan Seacrest when the cameras cut away, because by golly! This is a family show! (giggle).
What did you think?
