Mission Impossible: Special American Idol Edition

OBJECTIVE: To get Totally Awesome Boyfriend Totally Hooked on My Favorite Show, American Idol.

THEORY: If I could do it with Lost, I could do it with American Idol. And The Couple that Idolizes Together, Stays Together!

PROGRESS:
2.13.07: Totally Awesome Boyfriend calls me Just To Say Hi. Mentions he watched “That Show With The Singing.” Realize he means, My Favorite Show, American Idol. I Celebrate Silently. Success Rating: (Scale of 1-10) 6

2.14.07: Totally Awesome Boyfriend tells me, “I agree with Simon Most Of The Time.” Positive Identification Of One Of Three American Idol Judges complete Success! Success Rating: 8

2.17.07 Kelly Clarkson Song heard on Radio While Driving. Totally Awesome Boyfriend Turns Up Song. I mention that I Voted For Her. He Laughs. I realize, He Confuses American Idol Humor with Political Humor. My Task is going to be A Rough One. Success Rating: 4

2.20.07: Utter, Dismal American Idol Backfire Failure: Totally Awesome Boyfriend asks, “What do you want to Watch On TV, The Daily Randi?” I Very Casually announce, “Oh, I Don’t Know. Oh, but, you know, I think That Show, um, What’s It Called? Oh, yeah, American Idol is On. Let’s Watch That!” Indeed, I do get him to Change The Channel. But, then I Screw Up when I start to go On and On about Paula Abdul’s Hideous Shirt that made her look Totally Fat Armed and How I Think She Dresses Too Young For Her Age and I think She Needs A New Stylist and Ryan Seacrest is Wearing A Vest? Why, Ryan? Why! And That Boy Singing is Really Cute…. I am So Busy Complaining, I fail to notice that Totally Awesome Boyfriend has Gotten Up and Left The Room. When I enter his Bedroom during Super Long Commercial Break, he is Fast Asleep. Later, He wakes up for Family Guy. Success Rating: -2

TAB watched that show with the singing? Or maybe he was watching the 7:30 rerun of The Simpsons, and then after, while he was busy preparing for tomorrow's Valentine's Day, he left the TV on Fox without paying much attn. to that awful karaoke program?

ps I liked that Colombian girl who auditioned but she was no Shakira.

Ha, ha! I like your scorecard.

When can we expect to see The Bragging Rights Meter at the top of the page?

Gooch said...

I don't blame TAB. All the guys sucked last night. Not a Daughtry among them. Hopefully the ladies will be better.

Diane Mandy said...

I got Max hooked, too. Yeah for American Idol (and Lost)!! Just ope the women do a little better tonight.

Green said...

I like that blonde boy who beatboxes. Hey, TAB should watch if for no other reason than to learn to incorporate that into his next bragging rights dance.

Aimee said...

Doesn't matter. You still dance better and will win permanent dance-related bragging rights. :)

Amy said...

Is it just me or is Beat Box Boy a little reminiscent of Thomas Dolby?

And I totally had another point but its gone. Gone I tell you, Gone!

My love for the American Idol is large and fierce.

Oh! I remember! What the hell was up with that growth on the back of Paula's head last night? Was it an inappropriately applied hairpiece? Was it the hair equivalent of a "kick me" sign? What was it? It is driving me battier than I already am.
