Ramblings: David v. David

As I type this, I'm sure that Jeremy is at work doing exactly zero work. You see, he is probably spending the day worrying and pacing back and forth in his office. Why, you ask? Because it is a big day for his significant other, or excuse me, the other half of his man/boy crush. (That would be the little, goofy guy in the sweater on the left there. Oh, what Jeremy would give to be David Cook in this photo).


I have given Jeremy ENDLESS grief over his wildly obsessive, slightly creepy love affair with David Archuleta. When we watch our Tivo'd American Idol, we have to sit through no fewer than THREE repeats of his songs as Jeremy rewinds them and gushes over how great his boyfriend is. And yes, he has downloaded EVERY STINKING SONG that has come out of that kid's mouth from itunes. If his fan club is ever in need of a new president, they'll know who to call.

I thought the large vein in his forehead might actually explode last night when I told him I wanted Cook to win while he was in the process of text messaging his votes for little Archie. When I told him, yes, I may in fact call and vote for him, well I might as well have taken one of our Cutco knifes and planted it squarely between his shoulder blades.

FYI: Rooting for David Cook=ultimate act of betrayal. I'm sorry, I agree the Archuleta kid can sing but I can't get over how awkward and Gomer-Pyle like he is. Plus, I think Cook is awesome. Way more my style of music. But Archuleta is definitely way more Jeremy's--keep in mind that this is the guy that dragged me to box seats at the BARRY freaking MANILOW concert.

So after the results show, Jeremy will either be prancing around on cloud nine for a week, or he'll be calling in sick to work so he can mope around the house clutching a crumpled, tear-soaked picture of his man/boy crush listening to "Imagine" on his ipod over and over and over.......

That is great Laura! I have to say I am rooting for David A. too. I even voted for the first time ever last night. But I do think that David Cook is a lot better performer.

Hilarious!! I had no idea Jere was so in love. Best of luck this evening. Maybe you should make his favorite dinner in case Cook wins. Or do you have a recording of a BYU victory you can play for him?

That is hilarious. For your sake, I hope "Archie" wins tonight. (That's kind of how it is over here with the Spurs...)
