If you are AMERICAN .. and you are visiting this site .. PLEASE call that number up there right away. Call it as many times as you want to. It’s TOLL-FREE and it helps vote my girl, Kelly Clarkson, into the next round of American Idol. They don’t let Canadians vote so I can’t do anything but beg and plead all you kind American folks to do my dirty work for me. Trust me, she’s the best in the show – just take my word on that. :)
Now, as for the comment from Michelle yesterday in regards to me being on ‘Just Like Mom’ – yes indeed. I searched last night for screen shots or information on the show but it’s hard to come by. Most Canadians around my age will probably remember it – it was basically a CTV game show starring Blue Jays broadcaster Fergie Olver and his wife Catherine Swing that featured three children and their mothers. The children would be taken into a back room warehouse while the parents were asked three questions, then the kids were brought back out and asked the same ones – if they got them right, points. If they didn’t, no points. Then vice versa – take the Moms away, ask the kids, bring Mom out, compare answers. The big finale took the kids to a kitchen where they were instructed to make some sort of baked good, in my case, chocolate brownies. However, they hide the chocolate chips and give front row shelf space to items like curry powder, nutmeg, and Orange Crush. So naturally, these brownies are somewhat wretched. Then the Moms get to eat these little pieces of wonder and pick which monstrosity was created by the fruit of their womb. The kid with the most points throughout gets to spin a big wheel for a chance at anything from a set of bikes to a week at a camp, and the big prize, a family trip to Epcot in Disney World.
I got 0 points. My pity prizes included a Snoopy Brusha-Brusha Toothbrush and Fun-Around Faces. My Mom was really mad after she had asked me beforehand what my favourite food was. As any 8 year old might say, I said cereal. So on the show they ask “If you were going into outer space, and you could only bring ONE food with you, what would it be?” My answer: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Mom not happy. After the show she questioned my believed swapping of answers in mid-show, but I had a perfectly good, logical, 8-year old answer. “But Mom, you can’t bring cereal into outer space, it would float all over the place.”
