Idol: Exhibit A

Green Room - Week 11 - Day 1

It’s not Christmas, or even a holiday season – but I think Steve Martin still said it best:

“If I had one wish that I could wish this holiday season, it would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace.

If I had two wishes that I could wish for this holiday season, the first would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing in the spirit of harmony and peace.. and the second would be for $30 million a month to be given to me, tax-free in a Swiss bank account.

You know, if I had three wishes that I could make this holiday season, first, of course, would be for all the children to get together and sing.. the second would be for the $30 million every month to me.. and the third would be for all encompassing power over every living being thing in the entire universe.

And if I had four wishes that I could make this holiday season, first would be the crap about the kids.. second would be for the $30 million.. the third would be for all the power.. and the fourth would be to set aside one month each year for an extended 31-day orgasm, to be brought about slowly by Rosanna Arquette and that model Paulina somebody, I can't think of her name, of course my lovely wife could come, too. She's behind me 100% on this, I guarantee you.

Wait a minute, maybe that sex thing should be the first wish! So, if I made that the first wish, because, you know, it could all go boom tomorrow, and then what have you got? No, no.. the kids singing would be great, that would be nice. No, no, who am I kidding! I mean, they're not gonna be able to get all those kids together! I mean, the logistics of the thing is impossible! It's more trouble than it's worth! So, we reorganize: here we go. First, the sex - we go with that; second, the money. No! We go with the power second, then the money, and then the kids. Oh, wait, oh geez! I forgot about revenge against my enemies! Okay.. revenge against all my enemies, they should die like pigs in Hell! That would be the fourth wish! And of course, my fifth wish would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing in the spirit of peace and harmony. Thank you, everybody.”

That’s how I’m feeling today. But, to be fair, it’s how I’m feeling on most days. So there really isn’t much of a change there!


The poll closed last night – if you missed it, here is where you can find the results: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/639588.html
The new topics are at: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/639904.html


I also have a bit of good news this morning, due to circumstances, we did end up losing one item from our Community Chest. Which was going to mean that someone would have to go without. As usual, I was thinking that maybe the winner would just get the icon but no “prize”! Why? Because that’s the Idol Way! But Allison Williams (aka Season 8 winner whipchick aka person who runs idowords.net - under the circumstances, I’m definitely throwing in a mention of her business website, even if her site does seem to be anti-Robot American!) stepped up to the plate in a big way and delivered a new incentive to the Community Chest:

A Writer's Book Bundle of:

Carolyn See - Making a Literary Life
Betsy Lerner - The Forest For the Trees
Anne Lamott - Bird by Bird

So, if anyone who has already submitted their lists wants to readjust them, I more than understand! ;)

What else are you readjusting today?
