I usually don’t do a lot of pimping for my urbanmoms column. Sure, there’s a big button on my sidebar, and occasionally, i’ll put a little linky love at the bottom of my posts, but i usually leave it up to all of you to make it over there.

but today, i’m sending you all over there. go on, get.

you see, not like my good friend Di, who does them all the time, i’ve just written my very first book review. (how’d i do, Di? Do you want me to do guest reviews now??? ha!) and it’s not just any book review. this is a big one for me.

it’s Rebecca Eckler’s new book. that hasn’t hit the stores yet.

i’ve also been meme-struck by my partner-in-meme-crime, Haley-O. i will warn you, this is not an overly exciting one and my answers will likely resemble other answers you may have already come across….

5 reasons why i blog:

1. it’s a good outlet for my snarkiness and my potty mouth.

2. i would never have “met” some of the amazing people that i have.

3. it’s publishing. and i fancy myself somewhat of a writer. i’m getting my words out there. for other people to read.

4. this is the closest to fame i’ll ever get.

5. duh. it’s cheaper than therapy. don’t you read??!!

now…who to terrorize tag?? Let’s go with Anna, The Flip Flop Mamma and Jana.

American Idol

let’s bring back Daughtry, shall we? he would blow every single guy completely out of the water.

the good (and i use this term VERY loosely):

Blake – 311 on AI. yay. can they all learn from Blake and some singing the freakin’ Stevie Wonder??

Chris R – Simon was right, as usual. a bit nasally. but i still like his dorkiness.

Chris S – not my favorite performance of his but, i still think he’s GREAT.

Brandon – thought it was pretty solid, even though Simon’s worried for him.

the meh:

Sundance – props for singing something current-ish. but, it was Eddie Vedder. you don’t sing Eddie Vedder, unless you ARE Eddie Vedder. please don’t ever touch pearl jam again, okay, thanks. at least he didn’t cry tonight…

Jared – he sure was channeling his inner Carlton Banks, wasn’t he? and the eyebrows. dude, the eyebrows!

the bad:

Sanjaya – when did Sanjaya turn into his sister? he needs to go home. tonight.

Phil – that was quite the butchering he did of that song. i really just wanted to put him out of his misery. Leann Rhimes? seriously?!

best line of the night?? “If you make it, next week will you squint?”

  1. I’ll definitely hit your other blog today…I’m on my way out the door to a doctor’s appt. but I want to read your review!

  2. I read the review… I think you did a pretty good job.

    And you’re probably right… a lot of similar answers for why people blog (because no one is going to admit their plans for world domination through blog popularity… cough)

  3. Phil! Ewwww. He reminds me – and I may have said this before – of Nosferatu. I doubt Sanjaya will go home, because he has a HUGE voting fan base for some reason.

  4. I heard Idol was pretty rough last night.

  5. Your review? LOVED IT!!! You did a FANTASTIC job. congrats!

    I can’t believe how bad the boys on Idol SUCK!!! I can’t believe it. Everyone of them is, as far as I’m concerned, MEH! So disappointing!

    Thanks for playing this lamo tag! 😉

    Even the Carlton Banks thing!!!
    Too funny.

  7. Now I’m gonna have Big Pimpin’ in my head all day, which is fine, but my son’s nursery school teacher might not think it appropriate!
