So my mother has--this thing.



Mom started tensing up when they started singing George Michael, because people, that's her Holy Freaking Grail since I was twelve, 'kay? Then she started leaning forward when they did the second song. And I swear, there was panting involved when the third started.

I'm currently deaf. My mother and my sister screamed so loudly the dog ran away when George Michael showed up. The phone rang abruptly at which time my mother picked it up, said "Call later, George Michael" and hung up.

Every once in a while, my family? Not sane.

The second big scream was David Cook, since Mom and both sisters were convinced that David Archuleta was going to win and were preemptively bitter (but still on a George Michael afterglow--Jesus that was disturbing), and my sister called again for as to family gloat.

IT was surreal. I can't even say I didn't do the same, despite the fact I was only passively watching (and er, watching his performances on youtube), because really. There's something about fangirls in a family; it takes you from a vague twenty to a thousand in like, five seconds.

Dog is still terrified to come out.

You mean, they still let George Michael on American TV..?

And starting his first American tour in seventeen years. I thought my mother was going to collapse right then and there.

George touring, now that's a new one, since I had heard he doesn't actually like touring very much. I'd love to see him live - I like his music, and the fact that he doesn't take himself massively seriously...

Tickets have been on sale for a little while now, so she might want to hurry to get them...

My husband has been obsessed with GM since high school, so we're off to see him at MSG this summer sometime.

I'm guessing your mom is a fan of "Eli Stone"?

^^ I was going to ask the same thing as grammarwoman...

SHe would be the biggest fan of Eli Stone then... :)

Tonight was a surprise, I want David Cook to win but was convinced America would vote for Archuleta... hmmm... very happy for Cook :)

LOL! I managed to teach my father to txt message last summer ("but... how does it know where to go?" "it goes the # you tell it to." "... but how does it know the number?" "... really?") and so I received multiple from him, attempting to antagonize me because he felt Archuleta did better on Tuesday, blah blah - and then at the end, after I yelled, "YES!" in the privacy of my apt, he sent me a txt that say, "you know i have been supprting dc all along?"

Way to CYA, pops ;)

*loads Youtube for George Michael*

I'm not in America, but I'm very glad that David Cook won as from what I have been reading it was rather unexpected.

I can understand the George Michael love. I'm not at the stage of randomly screaming, but I loved his performance.

I'm a huge David Cook fan, but had convinced myself that he wasn't going to win. I'm sure I scared my neighbors when I screamed after he won! I'm so happy for him.

"Call later, George Michael" and hung up.

Can I just hug you're mom right now? Not that I love GM but I just love any mother who is as obsessed like a fangirl!

Best and most awesome fact of the day? David Cook is my roommate's 5th grade boyfriend. That just keeps getting more and more surreal.
