As I count my blessings and name them one by one today, my DVR is going to make the Top Ten List.
Because I double-booked Cade's birthday party with the season premier of American Idol, I had the good fortune of watching AI with limited commercial interruptions. Thank you, Jesus. A 2-hour show whittled down to a half-hour (give or take).
And for the record, I'm not particularly fond of the new judge. It could have something to do with the fact that I'm generally reluctant to accept change of any kind, but there were just too many opinions spouting from the judges' table last night.
But even if I had been forced to sit through 2 complete hours of terrible singers and even worse personas, and a freakin' annoying new judge, it would have all been worth it to see Ryan Seacrest try to HIGH FIVE A BLIND DUDE. Did anyone else feel as uncomfortable as I did? And secretly happy that Ryan exposes himself to the be idiot that I think he really is?
Why didn't he just try to turn it into a pat on the guy's shoulder since his hand was already all the way up there anyway? No, instead he even MORE AWKWARDLY bent down and tapped the guy's hand and verbally explained that he was giving him a high five. Yeah. Good save, Ryan. GAH!
