American Idol’s Aaron Kelly – a Pennsylvania kid!

31 Mar

Did you know….

American Idol hopeful Aaron Kelly, 16, is from Sonestown, Pennyslvnania.

Sonestown is about 4 hours from Pittsburgh, and, in fact, Kelly has, in the past, performed in “Da’ Burgh” in his pre-Idol days.

You can see his face on billboards in and around Pittsburgh for PA Cyber Schools.

Aaron is one of the younger contestants from American Idol, and has steadily impressed the judges with his country twang and mature – yet current – vocal stylings.

Kelly has performed with Pittsburgh country band, Steeltown, and has been featured on Pittsburgh’s “See and Be Seen” website.

His  home base is closer to Scranton than Pittsburgh, but surely many Pittsburghers are rooting for this fan favorite to be the next American Idol.

The Office and Grey’s and Runway, Oh My! (Vampire Diaries, too!)

25 Mar

Sooo. It’s a TV night.

Who are your favorites this season on Project Runway? I personally was a fan of Amy until she got the boot; now I really dig Seth Aaron and Anthony!

As for Grey’s Anatomy – have you all heard the news? Katherine Heigl and her new brunette ‘do are done with the show. Is this a surprise to anyone? Or news to anyone? (Um, if so…Belated Spoiler Alert?)

I’ll miss Izzy Stevens and all her neuroses … but, I kind of have a love/hate relationship with Heigl. Anyone else?   I am looking forward to seeing what types of movies she does. I’ll admit, I was a fan of The Ugly Truth and Knocked Up. Big time.

I’m glad we have DVR because I’d be lost without it.

The Office is on Thursdays, too, and is another FAVORITE. I don’t know how ANY HUMAN could resist The Office. I think it is truly one of the funniest shows EVER! (Does anyone else just adore Jim & Pam?)

And one comment on Vampire Diaries: (Yes, I watch it, don’t laugh)  — was it a casting REQUIREMENT that you had to be a MODEL to be on that show? I mean, is anyone NOT hot in the cast?

Who’s watching what? Every night’s a TV night with me…and I’m gosh-darn proud of it!  😉
