Two seconds away

from missing the BIG announcement.......


I can't fully convey what was going on at my house last night while we were watching the AI finale. We had the show recording.....we waited to watch until an hour into the show so we could fast forward through the's getting down to the wire when we realize WE MAY NOT HAVE ENOUGH TIME SAVED on the recording.

My DH did not record the show right after AI in case it ran long. ( He doesn't watch award shows and didn't realize he should have extra time, just in case they ran over...He records 7 extra hours when he is recording his NASCAR races..I'm just saying.)

It's to late to go back and pick up the other show...he may cause the entire AI show to malfunction....We are recording something on a different station so it will not automatically allow us to go back when we become "Live". (We had a misfortunate ERASURE of the CSI-Vegas FINALE FROM LAST WEEK that we are still dealing wasn't me, that's all I'm saying)

Anyway.....they are 8 minutes from the end of our time...they go to commercial...they come back with about 3 minutes left..they go to the judges for comments..NO!!!!!!! Paula can ramble for 3 minutes....hurry Ryan....Paula is sort of brief and then Simon desides to become HUMAN and apologize to DC.

THANKS! Should have done that LAST NIGHT.

Ryan starts to announce the WINNER .....of....... the .......2008...... American....... Idol.................

DH starts to check to see how much time is left on the recording...I scream......NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. He puts down the remote.....

Ryan says....IS........DAVID..........COOOOOOOK.

We Scream and the recording ENDS as the " K" leaves his mouth.

Our boy won!!!! BUT, we didn't get to see any of the celebration. The final Song. The family moment. NOTHING. But, we saw the winning moment by 2 SECONDS!

WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Now I have to go find the rest of the show on the internet. I tried for 30 minutes last night and they didn't have it available. I must find! that I have that out of my are my favorite moments from last night, before my Blood Pressure got a work out:

David Cook singing and playing with ZZ TOP.

Jack Black as a PIP (you MUST find that video clip!)

David Cook in the Guitar HERO commercial doing the Risky Business take off. !!!!!

David A doing the same commercial and showing EXACTLY the difference between the Davids. LOL

The Guru trying to shave David C and David A catching the shaving cream as it fell then watching David C crack up laughing. Priceless!

There would probably be other moments from the END OF THE SHOW but since I haven't seen them....Sorry, I need a second.....

Til later...............

So glad you were able to see the announcement of the winner.

My DVR sits in a constant record status of 75% it seems. Makes me too nervous to let it get any closer to 100%.. hehe
