I agree with you totally on Tom getting the boot. James should have been gone instead. Idiotic to keep him if you even think he may not come back full tilt. I can't understand how they cannot figure out a puzzle, one right after the other the puzzles keep foiling them. If one of them know how to do puzzles they must be holding back, for some sort of strategic move, we can only hope. Right now they all look a bit like chickens with the heads cut off.
The preview looks interesting for next week. Rob and Russell. The suspense is growing, will we finally see Russell try to make a move, it looked as if he was getting ready to use that immunity idol some how, will he bribe Boston Rob with it? Make an alliance with Rob? I don't think that's possible, but who knows.

Even Jeff Probst thinks it was the "THE DUMBEST DECISION YET" - it's the first line in his blog (which has been hilarious the past couple of weeks).

I had to drive around American Idol film crews at the school today. Look for Barnstable High School to appear in upcoming weeks.

How exciting. Maybe we will see you next. She's doing quite well, isn't she?

On Friday, a site with avid viewers (not the official AI site) asked "Who is the least deserving to be in the top 12?" The percentages may be a fairly good indicator of who might be in the top 4-6. Take particular note, that Siobhan received the fewest votes (which is a good thing) out of all of them! Just remember to continue to vote for her and use DialIdol.com if you have a landline.

Who is the least deserving member in the top 12?
Selection Votes

Aaron Kelly 12% 687
Andrew Garcia 10% 540
Casey James 1% 54
Crystal Bowersox 1% 73
Didi Benami 3% 159
Katie Stevens 13% 728
Lacey Brown 8% 452
Lee DeWyze 1% 73
Michael Lynche 1% 58
Paige Miles 24% 1,365
Siobhan Magnus 1% 50
Tim Urban 24% 1,351

Wow - Aaron Kelly? Really? I thought he should have gone home last week instead of my beloved Alex Lambert. The power of the teeny bopper vote should not be underestimated!
Okay, who thought of me while watching Medium? =)

I have two things to say about that episode:

First, why can't they pronounce the name of the town correctly?! Sheeze, it ruins all credibility when they can't even pronounce San Luis Obispo correctly. (Although, technically speaking, some people might argue that they did that deliberately to mimic the common mispronunciations of tourists so it sounds even more credible, but frankly, I can't believe that they'd deliberately mispronounce it for so-called tourist authenticity.)

And second, that whole airport shuttle stop.... Hahahahaha! That airport is so small, it has just one gate, and that doesn't even have a jetway. An airport shuttle... *shaking head* How ridiculous. *snort laugh*

How on earth did they pronounce it? I can only imagine one way -- I'm a native Californian but not from near SLO so I'm wondering if it's possible that I've always sounded like a tourist.

Same reason CSI mispronounces every town in NeVAHda - no local script consultants.

They pronounced it San "Loo-ee" Obispo. *shaking head* Shameful. Just shameful.

That's all I could come up with ... my boyfriend (also from CA) and I sat here trying to come up with something other than the Spanish or the Americanized way to say it -- and I finally said, "unless they pronounced it like it was French? San Louie?" But I guess I'm glad to say I've never heard anyone say it that way in real life.

It would appear a lot of people are not happy Alex left so early. Check out this petition to bring him back! Over 11,000 signatures already! And yes, you are right. The tweens know how to text like crazy.

I concur. I've literally gotten 100 votes in for her in 30 minutes. I have to work a double tomorrow so I can't keep this pace till midnight. Someone has to pick up my slack :-) If she wasn't deserving of votes, I wouldn't advocate for her. She has a good chance to go VERY far providing people vote.
She could be the dark horse :-) Let's see her through gals!

Oh man, I totally forgot that!

Thanks for reminding me so that I can be disappointed now instead of at 7 pm tonight!

And I was just thinking how much I was looking forward to the Rob/Russell showdown from the previews, too.

Grey's Anatomy drove me crazy the first season. They live in Seattle, one of THE espresso capitols of the country and they said in several episodes, "get me a mocha latte".

Excuse me? I live in Portland, which also loves espresso, and people always call it a "mocha". Just a mocha. No "latte" tacked on. Obviously, the writers didn't know their espresso the first season . . .

It also drove me bonkers that the characters would get some sort of coffee drink in a paper cup and lid and obviously have an empty cup by the way they carried it.

They would then take a sip from the supposedly full cup and tilt the cup like it was half empty. Get your props right, people!
