Yep, I watched "America's Got Talent." The judge formula is intact, with a goofy guy, an effusive half-drunk woman (I don't know that Sharon Osborne is drunk during the tapings or if it's leftover from previous drunks) and a pompous British jackass.

Who "buzzed" Prince Poppycock for being "too serious." What was too serious? The castrato-as-Achilles armor? the floating angel in the background? the overarching silliness? And they picked this twit to replace Larry King instead of the so-much-more deserving Stephanie Miller? So I broke my vow of never being sucked into one of these stupid things, and I voted for Prince Poppycock. Ten Times. Fortunately, I never go over my minutes.
All else is quiet. Second evening in San Diego -- today was the "big day," Mom's surgery, which went well except for the hour-long delay getting her out of recovery & into the room, just because they were short-staffed. Fine excuse, hospital. Your short-sightedness on staffing cost me the brain cells destroyed by two episodes of Disaster Date on MTV. Combine that with the 30 seconds of audio from Keeping up with the Kardashians I accidentally heard on the plane flight down, and I can see that my decision to drop cable TV was not just financially sound, I'd be completely bonkers otherwise.

My parents have cable. So does my brother. I'm here for four weeks. Pray.
