Goodbye, American Idol

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. No more AI for me, not after that debacle last night.

Walking Zombie

The docs put me on a new med which makes me feel as worse as my attacks. It may take up to three weeks for my body to get adapted to it, so I'm basically trying to make it through until I feel better, or at least have more energy. The dizziness hits me about 2 hours after I take the horse pills. Yecch.

But even though I'm low, I managed to pull off a kick ass draft of MADAM MOM. I also give tons of credit to my co-writer, thanks to her initial draft, I couldn't have done it without her. With this script, the key for me was adding a twist to Madam's character. When I got that part down, the comedy just flowed out of me.

On another note, I sure hope Bo beats the Farmbot, but I have a strange feeling that we may have another Ruben-Clay scenario. After those horrible songs they forced Bo to sing last night, I'm of the opinion he maybe better off NOT winning. This way, he can go off and make his "very special" album with Clive Davis, and Carrie can stand in front of the mirror and practice her performing skills.

More MHY

Just learned that Showtime has scheduled more showings of MY HORIBLE YEAR for the month of June.

My mother's house was invaded by a group of guerilla filmmakers yesterday. I made the mistake of telling my director friend Scott, who was lamenting that he needed a house with a big bright living room for his shoot, that my Mom's house fit the bill. It was a loooong day and we're all still recuperating. Sasha, our devil cats, was completely unnerved by all these strangers and clawed my Mom. But everything went well, free donuts and pizza and I even threw in home made brownies and chocolate chip cookies.

On the health front, my Doc put me on new meds, so we'll see how that goes. You know, the side effects sound worse than what you're being treated for.

Did have a computer upset, something crashed my AOL software and took HOURS to unravel, but I got back on line just in time to get another pass on MOTHERHOOD, damn it.

Treading Water

Stephanie has mono, still haven't heard anything about my scripts, still not one hundred percent, and Paula is still on American Idol. But we are getting two kittens, named Mozart and Kisses. Will our wild cat Sasha accept them? Or will she try to mangle them? Stay tuned.

American Idiot

The burning question of the day: did Paula Abdul have an "inappropriate relationship" with 2002 AI contestant Corey Clarke.

Based on the evidence thus far, I must sadly conclude...yes.

But on the other hand, we have a drunk driving, coke sniffing, good ole boy in the Oval Office that we elected not once, but twice.

President-American Idiot

Abdul-Fallen Idiot

America lives to forgive. All Paula need do now is go on Larry King and tearfully confess. The public will lap it up.

The Blackjack Bride

Who gives a shit about the Caliperi shooting, the senseless killing in Iraq, the bumbling Bolton nomination, fumbling Frist, stumbling DeLay, Boosh's Social Insecurity Tour, Laura "Leno" and Gannon/Guckert's overnight stays in the WH?

We's got more important things to worry about, like Constantine and Bo, did Paula really sleep with Corey, Nanny 911, runaway brides from Georgia and fingers found in our fast food.
