American Idol - How did I do? And thoughts/faves of the top 24

Okay, so I did pretty badly this year, LOL! Only 10 out of 24, although, technically, it *should* be 11 out of 24 because Chris Golightly DID make it to the top 24, but was disqualified due to a contract dispute that was resolved too late for Golightly. Anyhoo, the 24 behind the cut, my thoughts on them, the ones I picked from auditions, and my early favorites going into the top 24.

Random Olympics ...

Avoiding controversy this time (I think, LOL!)

First of all, a word about figure skating. I am very patriotic; I love my country super-lots. July 4th is my favorite holiday, and even when I had issues with Bush, I still respected the office of the presidency. I am a proud American. And when it comes to the Olympics, I root for USA pretty much all the way ... except when it comes to figure skating. I love the beauty, artistry and sport of figure skating too much to just base it on my country. (Not to say that I don't admire when other countries' athletes do an amazing job in other sports, I just don't actively root for non-USA.) So, bear that in mind when you read my figure skating comments.

And that is all, although, I could have sworn that Apolo's final two competitions were last night and I was looking forward to see if he'd get another medal or two. If it did happen and NBC just didn't air it yet (stupid tape-delayed NBC), please don't spoil me.
