deadliest catch

i don’t know why i love this show so much. it’s about a bunch of alaskan crab fishermen and fishing for crab on the bering sea. it seems like it wouldn’t be that exciting, but week after week, season after season i keep tuning in. it’s a great show.

i think part of the drama is just seeing the greenhorns adjust, the struggles that the captains have managing their boats, and the great unknown of the sea. will there be crab? what will it be like? it’s interesting just to see what kind of life these men go through to make a living.

american idol – the top 5

spoiler alert. don’t read if you don’t want to know.

let me just start by saying: NO FREAKING WAY!

clearly america is voting with talent not on the top of the list! i cannot believe that jason AND brooke were safe! i think brooke was as surprised as the rest of us were. that’s great for me because i really like her, but my jaw dropped when i found out that brooke was safe and syesha was safe! that’s ridiculous.

if i had to choose between syesha or carly, though, i definitely would have saved carly. you have to start looking at who can really be an american idol and i don’t think that david archuleta is your man. he is just a little kid with a good voice. give it some time, but he’s no idol. david cook is the man that i have pegged to win it. syesha’s got the look. what will america do next?

at least they are all talented in their own way.

i haven’t seen it yet, so don’t tell me

i am going to try to avoid the internet like a thief in hiding today. i haven’t seen the american idol results show yet and i don’t want to know who got kicked off yet. it must have been a little part of me that knows that brooke probably got voted off last night. after forgetting the words at this stage of the competition, there’s really no excuse.

so maybe it was an unconscious desire to not have to deal with her leaving that made me not watch the show last night. i don’t know, but i’m going to go watch the episode soon and i’m not hopeful.
