I get to go to bed early

Kris Allen backstage on April 21
I have watched American Idol.   I have voted for Kris Allen many times.  (Rock n Roll was not the best showcase for his talents, but I still think he is great.)  I am about to go to bed.  I have looked forward to this almost all day.  What a wonderful thing when I have the freedom to go to bed when I want.  

My neighbor said the other day that she is like the birds... she goes to bed when they do and she gets up when they do.  That is my idea of a really good time.  

Tomorrow morning I will meet a sponsee at the 6:30 meeting.  It will be good to be there.  

What's the point?  This is boring.  But Thanks to God and the program of Alcoholics Anonymous, I get to live a good life.  In a good life, there is not excitement every day.  I have days when basically nothing happens.  And those are really good days.  I have had enough excitement for a lifetime.  I really enjoy boring.  

I think I will try it for another day tomorrow...

People sometimes thing that I'm kidding when they hear me say "...I aspire to a life where I could be stupid, boring and glum..."

Sweet dreams and a happy new day...

Well, I don't particularly care for "boring" since I've had so much of that in my life--all of my own making. And I don't wish either--to BE boring, but that's a matter of, Ummmmmmmm, perspective? taste? It's that time tonight.

...I'm getting bored, and being boring!

BED TIME!

Well, he's cute and I imagine he can sing, but I have never seen the show. I know, how un-American!

I tell (young-ish) people all the time that I have lived all the excitement I need for this lifetime.

I dig boring!
No rock was not his strong suit.
He's been trying to call you, but he says you go to bed early and miss his calls.

I've never watched American Idol. Maybe Scott W. and I are the only two to not have. And boring is okay with me. Although I call it peaceful. That sounds better to me than boring.

He did good last night. Either way, win or lose he has a very promising career ahead of him. Not to mention he is just as cute as a bug's ear. I like Adam myself. I love his voice and stage presence.

Sorry, but to me..."peaceful" is certainly not "boring". I LOVE peaceful, HATE boring.

Maybe this is a "semantical" thingie?

I think that talking about going to bed early and watching American Idol is pretty boring. Peaceful would have a lot more content... in my book anyway.
