Mom Drank the Kool-Aid

My mom called last night, just casually, to tell me that my niece got a job. As I listened, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's just a job at Eddie Bauer, not like a job at the Pentagon or anything.

Then she says:

"So, who do you think will get voted off tonight?"

She totally called just to gossip about American Idol.

My mom is enjoying the freedom of watching whatever the eff she wants on television. When we were kids, she used to love variety shows, award shows, and the like. So it's not surprising that she has fallen under American Idol's spell.

At least she agrees with Kevin now. I thought their relationship was going to end over "The purple haired girl" that was voted off first-ish. Kevin loves her and my mom hated her.

Now they both want Casey James to win and they both don't care for Crystal Bowersox. Both of them were satisfied with "the screamer" getting voted off last night.

I did learn one thing, just in time,: Don't talk negatively about her Ellen. Whew! Dodged a bullet there.

Sometimes I forget that she's 75 years old. She thinks that Kara is acting like a hussy, hanging on Simon that way. She can't remember Ryan's name for anything. "That cute Bryan Seacourt...."

At least now we have something to talk about each week. (:-D
