I'm Irish! No, really! Plus Adam Lambert, Jonas Brothers, and SNL

I'm Irish. And I'll pinch anyone who says I'm not. Out of four grandparents, one was pure Irish, my maiden name is Irish, and I have freckles, reddish brown hair, and I used to be a seal.

So you know I'm probably related to Bono and he should totally give me free tickets to the new U2 concert.

Have you heard U2's new CD? I have. I'm not totally sold on it; it's a different sound from their last few CDs. But I'm totally in support of them, being Irish and all.

Entertainment recap:

  • It's Adam Lambert night, I mean, American Idol night! Hooray! I can't wait to see what Adam will sing tonight. My second choice is still the red-haired Allison; coming in third is that Justin Timberlake guy.
  • The Jonas Brothers 3D movie rocked the theater. (Kevin is my favorite.) Those guys were pumping with energy, and the stage dynamics--wow! The brothers rose high above the audience on different types of risers. Very impressive, but what a neck-kill if you're in the audience. Once again, 3D doesn't bring it for me in a concert movie. There's nothing about a concert that can fully use the 3D quality, except for bringing to life that annoying feeling of having heads or hands in my way.
  • Tracy Morgan hosted Saturday Night Live recently. It was the best show in a long time (the first half, anyway). I couldn't wait when I heard Steve Martin and then Alec Baldwin were hosting, but those shows fell flat. Tracy was up on his game. Did you see the opening? Ha!
Anyway, you know what I'll be doing tonight. Make sure you look around today and pinch everyone not wearing green.

Oh no, I should have a dozen or more pinch marks on me by now! I know have green somewhere in my closet...can't find it!! You look Irish, I believe you! I'm just a wannabe :-)

We're tuning in as I speak. My vote is for Adam Lambert as well...it seems implausible that he could screw anything up, but as we know from past seasons, he will eventually. It's inevitable.

I've received no requests to see the Jonas 3D movie. I've been waiting for an excuse to see it. How pathetic would it be for the mom to beg the kids to go?

Happy St. Patty's Day to you, lassie! I'm a wee bit Irish myself (which my hubby didn't know til today!).
I'm surprised my daughter hasn't begged me to see the Jonas Bros movie....I'll wait for the DVD unless she begs.
I liked SNL the other night too!
