Today, I'm taking a break from my autism awareness month stuff. I've had a crazy past week. My computer's hard drive crashed and died mid-last week - as you can since my last post was last week on Wednesday. It's still in being repaired, and hopefully the data will be recovered as well. In the meantime, I just got my super slow laptop set up in a way I can do a bit of work on it. Of course, it all had to happen less than a week before I leave for my annual writer's conference in Utah. Yeppers. Not only that, but I've now received two rejections for my Teaching Special Spirits book. Depressing - heck, yeah. But nonetheless, I'm pushing on and it's out to two more publishers right now. So far, both are interested in it. It will be interesting to see what happens.
So, today I really, really, really needed a laugh . . . and some inspiration.
I've just recently (this season) started watching American Idol. And I discovered something about it I really, truly like - Simon Cowell. Can I just say, that man is gorgeous! AND his comments totally make me laugh. OK - it's totally not nice to be mean to people, especially on national television, but the crowd's reaction to him just makes me laugh! And most of the time, the guy is spot on. He really knows what to look for and is brutally honest in his feedback. In keeping with my recent Simon fascination, I discovered some totally hilarious Simon You Tube videos. These are from both American Idol and Brittain's Got Talent, as Simon is a judge for both shows.
First, the hilarious - get ready to fall out of your chairs from laughing so stinkin' hard!
Brittain's You've Got Talent loves Michael Jackson!
American Idol and the world are blessed because Simon Cowell a part of it.
And now, the inspirational - get the tissues ready!!!
Brittain's Got Talent and so does Paul.
I couldn't post this last one on my blog. You can only link to it. So here it is: Brittain's Got Talent presents Susan Broyle. I absolutely LOVE Simon's expression.
So there you go. A little bit of what cheers up my day. May your day be wonderful and your week fabulous, too!
