alexpgp is the type of “busy” that most people only dream about being. Which is why he ultimately had to drop this week, in order to concentrate on that pesky “Real Life”. Anyone who has been following Idol for any length of time knows that I would literally fight someone for an officer position in his official Fan Club. He’s someone who is fairly low key, and might not interact as much, so you don’t hear as many people talk about it – but those who find it usually end up quickly becoming fans. Losing him is always a blow, and is no less in this mini-season.
The good news though is that he’s the first to qualify to select something from the Community Chest! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/676576.html So, there’s that…
In other news – I learned something important yesterday. Something that I don’t think can be said enough… teenagers interested in social justice are extremely annoying. It’s great that they are taking an interest in the world around them – and realizing the existence of privilege… but teenagers tend to be annoying on their own, and believe that they have all of the answers… I know, I was one (long ago)… so, teens with a *cause*… man… they were nice enough people, and perfect great to talk to, but once they got on that soapbox… I’d forgotten what it was like! It makes me wonder why the homicide rate of teenagers isn’t higher! ;)
I thought Idol contestants were annoying!! “Teen LJ Idol” would be a nightmare! ;)
