I've been a bit under the weather the last several days, and I'm trying to get ready for my mini book tour this weekend with Hank Phillippi Ryan and Julie Hyzy down in North Carolina (if you're in the Raleigh/Durham area, check out our schedule here), so I'm a little discombobulated and have only random thought for today:
Why is it that after days of promoting the women's short program figure skating, they didn't show it until 11 p.m. last night? We were even willing to forgo Girl's Night on American Idol to watch the skaters, but all we saw were bobsledders and even more skiers.
Which begs the question: Just how many downhill/slalom races can the Olympics have?
And further: Bobsledding should be on during the day. Like the curling. Or better yet, move the curling to nighttime and bobsledding to daytime.
American Idol: They kept saying how strong the girls are this year. Seriously? Not from what I saw. Any other opinions?
And more on American Idol: Every year the judges say they should pick songs that they can "turn into their own." And every year most of them don't do that. Don't they watch the show? It's like someone going on Survivor without knowing how to make fire first, or someone on the Amazing Race who doesn't know how to drive a stick shift. I mean, really. We are the only country that panders to drivers and allows them easy automatic driving.
Any random thoughts of your own?
