I'm not feeling very creative tonight. I think I'm using up all my creativity at work right now. I've designed several invitations for upcoming events and am in the process of putting together our twice yearly newsletter. My brain is beat.
I forgot to mention the coolest thing about the Pilates that I went to yesterday. It's free and I did it on my lunch hour. A woman that I work with is Pilates certified and she teaches a class in the basement twice a week for employees. I've never been before but I've really been suffering with lower back pain recently and I think strengthening my core will help. So I went. And I'm going tomorrow.
Is anybody watching American Idol this season. I'm sort of half watching it --- literally. I'm only watching the boys. In all honesty I'm not a big fan of female singers in general and none of the girls have done much for me so far, at least in the clips I've seen.
I first watched American Idol the season of Taylor Hicks, Katherine McPhee, Chris Daughtry, et al. I think we can all agree that Chris really won that season. And I don't know if it's because that season was my first or if they were really that good, but the rest of the seasons have not measured up for me.
But this year, I've got an early favorite. Jason Castro. Did you see this last night:
That voice is just heaven. He's so different from anything we've seen on the last couple of seasons. And he's got such a hippy trippy vibe that I just can't help but like him. I'd kind of like to shrink him down and put him in my pocket and bring him out now and then during the day. I'd just put him on the edge of my desk and let him sing me a little song. His phrasing soooort of puts me in mind of Bob Dylan. I don't know how he'll fare once we hit the theme weeks (Bon Jovi, anyone?) but I can't wait to see how he does. Does anyone else have a favorite?
