American Idols

Posted by Jon in HB | 8:30 PM | 3 comments »

I'm watching American Idol and surfing the blogs.

I have to walk around and go from room to room while watching it.
You see if I sit down in one spot and watch it then I get too in to it and start sniffling.
I know what you're thinking, "No, not you Jon, you seem so cold and unemotional!"
Truth be told, Extreme Home Makeover, Christmas songs, weddings, baptisms, and Little House on the Prairie, all make me go for the Kleenex.
Thank God they throw in a little Heart and Fergie to let me dry my eyes. Fergalicious!

While surfing the blogs I found a new posting from a really neat girl (actually young woman) that used to wait tables for me when I worked downtown. She's on a mission in Africa. She's been there about a year now. She works with kids. A lot like the boys in the Annie Lennox segment on Idol. It's cool that Idol does this once a year. It's even cooler that some leave their families, friends, homes and security and do it 365 days a year.

Take a moment and check out her blog, say a prayer for her, and maybe leave a comment too. Sometimes I think she needs to know that she has people here thinking about her.

Here's a link to her blog http://www.erinrockofafrica.blogspot.com/
