Taking a quick break from the homeschool goodness to say...

Am I the only person on the planet who doesn't watch American Idol?

Of course, that's a ridiculous exaggeration, but I've read no less than half a dozen summaries of the Dolly Parton-inspired performances this morning and I don't even know who these people are. And how many of you think the dreadlocked guy has ever heard a Dolly song *in his life* in spite of the fact that he's from Texas?

I must confess that I have never seen more than a few minutes of American Idol (even though I love me some Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood) and I've watched a total of 12.437 seconds of Survivor. I tend more toward the sophisticated and cerebral. For example, last night I read Pride and Prejudice and played Webkinz. What? You don't think Webkinz is cerebral? Ok, *you* get past level 11 on Home Before Dark and I'll personally mail you a fabulous, handmade Excellence and Lightning Fast Reflexes in Spatial Reasoning and Manual Dexterity award. Maybe I'll work on it next Tuesday night while I sit in front of the TV and figure out this whole American Idol thing.

LOL...I have never, ever watched a single second of AI. And I have no desire to.

Goober's Lab, however...what's not to love?
