I love surprises. Being surprised, getting surprises, the works. So knowing that I could very well find out who had won American Idol before actually watching it on air (it being the information age and all) , I resisted the urge to do a google search, let alone allow myself to accidentally browse into an entertainment news page or something like that. Three years ago, to avoid this predicament, I went back home to catch the live screening of the program. Yup, caught it all…how Fantasia won the title and all the hoopla that came with the live show. This year though, I unfortunately don’t have that luxury. However, despite my being careful not to find out who had won, before I left work yesterday, I saw the status message of one of my colleagues on MSN, that said, “Yay! Jordin and…” (rest of the message was hidden from the window on my screen). GAWSH…. that just did it for me. It was obvious that Jordin had won. No fun already since I already knew the winner. To make matters worse, I turned on the TV at 8:03p.m. to catch the premier screening of the American Idol Results show and actually caught a glimpse of Jordin singing! Apparently the 6:00-8:00p.m. screening dragged on a bit … so it was clear who had won. Shucks.
This morning itself, I almost got conned. I was browsing through my Google Reader and was reading LB‘s new post from my reader. For some reason, I am unable to open his site and May‘s site at work. I used to be able to view their blogs using Firefox but now, I can only see them at home. Anyway, I was reading his latest post, and somewhere in the middle, he warned of a spoiler for Heroes! I almost jumped out of my seat and closed the window immediately! No way was I about to subject myself to a Heroes spoiler. Hehe….I was so looking forward to getting my weekly dose of Heroes tonight, but hubby just told me over lunch (steamed mushroom chicken rice and Hong Kong chee cheong fun) that his friend had not gotten it yet. Bummer….the suspense is killing me.
