Crying makes me laugh

Just watched American Idol. Yes, I'm a fan. I admit it. My favorites overall are Melinda Doolittle, Jordin Sparks, Blake Lewis, and Chris Sligh, in that order. My, what good names they have. And I haven't laughed this hard in a while. They kept showing this little girl with braces who was just crying and crying and crying, and it was the cutest, most ridiculous thing ever. Fitting that the theme was British Invasion because she reminded me of those screaming, crying Beatle fans. They first showed her when Sanjaya sang, then again when Melinda sang, and then they brought her onto the stage at the end. Still crying. Me laughing. Also remind me of that song Smile by Lily Allen, which a friend just recommended to me and I listened to on my iPod this morning.

At first when I see you cry
It makes me smile
Yeah it makes me smile

I was SO thrilled when they had Sanjaya go into the audience to give her a hug. She was precious!

Me loves Lily Allen.

By the end, though, I found myself worrying about her and predicting future therapy sessions where she re-enacts the show again and again ... Hey, and Sanjaya did okay, didn't he?

I like Jordin, too, and not just because she reminds me of a much more talented, prettier version of a younger me.

Although I live in the UK, I got to see Melinda Doolittle live in Nashville almost exactly two years ago. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had.

I just wish I could make it to Feinstein's this next week, but sadly that is just not possible.

If you can get to New York don't miss the opportunity.
