Palm Springs and Other Things

Last night we decided to check out something special.

The Palm Springs Street Fair is always a good time.

We even asked the rabbi a few questions...

then hurried home for So You Think You Can Dance.

Speaking of SYTYCD, it seems like there are some pretty hot prospects this year. I'm looking forward to enjoying a brand new season of my favorite show.

As for Idol, I didn't get hooked in enough to vote this time, but I was glad Scotty won. He stayed consistent throughout and seemed like a great kid. I was especially struck by the ending where he hugged his entire family (and the other contestants) whilst singing the lame song the show wrote for him. "I Love You So Big???" Give me a break! Just what a 17-year=old guy always always wanted to croon to the world, right? A love song for two-year-olds. But I did think it was darling how he used his time to let everyone around him know that he cared about them.

Finally, my two favorites on Dancing with the Stars were Chelsea/Mark and Hines/Kym. I was surprised that Kirstie took 2nd place over Chelsea, but I was happy enough to see Hines win. (I liked the way he treated Kym after she was injured.) True, I was a little more into Chelsea than Hines, but Mark was a bit insufferable, so it's all good.

=)

PS. At the street fair, there was a guy covering Neil Young songs so well that we had to look twice and then a third time to make sure he wasn't the genuine article!

PPS. The hubby bought me an early birthday present...a really neat wind catcher (the coolest one I've ever seen) to go on my back porch. I'll post a picture once I get home and find an appropriate place of honor to hang it!

That looks like a fun and interesting outing. I am glad too that Scotty won Idol. I keep forgetting about SYTYCD. I liked watching it last year. Have a happy and safe weekend. Hugs

Palm Springs looks like a really neat place to visit!
My hubs was really into Dancing with The Stars so I watched it with him. I was rooting for Kirsty only because she was an old gal that could really shake it! And a big gal that sweated her a** off literally! She just amazed me. But I have to say the best dancer was Chelsea even though Hines was a real upstanding guy!~Ames

I'm with you. Scotty winning American Idol was like the good guy finally winning the reality show race. Wasn't he hilarious with Lady Gaga? I think I may have felt the same way about her. Ew.

Hmmn....the street fair in Palm Springs does look a bit like a street fair here in Ohio..without the hog and cow barn and curly fries and steak on a stick. We don't have many Rabbis either. In fact, we don't have any. Most of the patrons don't have any teeth either, but other than that I bet is pretty much the same! Have a ball and a very Happy Birthday!

A wind catcher?? Do you mean a wind chime? Yes, please do show us.

Have fun in Palm Springs!
