The Faux-Hawk?

Aye caramba. If Sanjaya doesn't go this week, then he's got a good chance of winning the whole kit & kaboodle. Chris R still seemed kinda whiney. Haley was still hot, but not very good. Chris S is still having trouble with song choice and sticking with the beat. But Sanjay has just gone off the deep end. I think he finally lost it. He has realized that there's a good chance that it doesn't matter what he does, he'll get votes, so he's just going ape-shit. I don't even think he was trying to sing well last night. Also, I think he put a lot of people off with the bizarre hairdo last night. Gina did really well. Phil kicked butt. Jordin did great for a 17-year old. Too bad she's on American Idol and not 17-Year Old Idol. Lakisha & Melinda killed, as usual. I have heard that if Sanjaya wins, Simon will refuse to come back next year. I don't blame him. I probably won't be back, either. I would be hesitant to return if he even makes it in the top 5! He better go tonight.

Anyway, enough Idol for now. The Big Move was this past weekend. I have but no clue how we managed to accumulate so much stuff! It's unbelievable! We had taken over about 5 car loads ahead of The Move, then loaded a 15-foot truck and at least partially loaded 5 cars, and still have more stuff. We made two trips on Monday, one trip last night, and are going back tonight with two cars. Tonight should be the last of it. *knock wood* We'll swing by Friday night to check mail and drop off the keys, and that will be it! Yaayy! Of course, we're still trying to figure out where everything goes in the new place. But we've put away about... oh... 75% of it or so. As the place gets lived in, we'll probably wind up moving some stuff, but for now, it's getting put away.

So far, the place is great. Even though in terms of square footage, it's not leaps & bounds bigger than our old place, it feels much bigger. The kitchen is bigger. It's great having two bathrooms. We've got our new HDTV hooked up. So sweet! The new bed, queen size, is super comfy. Loving that. There are only a few downers: 1) no balcony; 2) no fireplace (not that I expect one in our price range); 3) parking's not great, but it's do-able; 3.5) Buddy's staying at his grandmommy's in Jersey until Easter (it's only temporary - that's why it gets the 1/2). He was a little stressed when we were packing and was a little confused with a new environment, so we decided to let him stay in Jersey for a couple weeks while we put everything away. By the time we bring him back, he probably won't even remember the old place! He's not too bright sometimes...

Once everything is presentable, I'll do a new video tour. Oh, I know I said enough Idol (sorry Julie), but I do have to brag just a little that I predicted Stephanie's departure last week. All the entertainment news outlets seemed to be quite surprised by it. Guess they should have asked me!

Thanks for the update! I was wondering how you guys made out over the weekend. Did you get to really "use" the new kitchen yet? Chrissy talked about cooking on Sunday - did that ever happen? Good luck with finding places to put things. I would love to move, but Al and I would probably need 3 full-sized tractor trailers for all our crap! :)
