Pollen, pollen go away..and take Scott with you!

Pine pollen has hit full force this week, covering everything with a thick yellowish coat. My car, which is hunter green, looks like it is layered with chartreuse powder, and my 2 cats, normally black as night, look celery green after rolling on the garage floor. Car wash shops are doing a booming business, but I wait until the pollen leaves for good. Otherwise, it is a total waste of money.
Update on the abcessed tooth: it is gone, but not forgotten. Someone forgot to read the full directions given him by the oral surgeon, and did not use an ice pack - on 20minutes/off 20 minutes - for 6 to 8 hours following the removal. So we have the chipmunks residing in the cheek again, but only 2 of them this time. I am somewhat tired of cooking soft foods; it will be good to get back to a normal diet, and popcorn every evening. He, of course, loves a good excuse to eat ice cream and pudding, but that will fade away soon.
AMERICAN IDOL FANS: Do you think that Scott Savol has paid a lot of people to call in and vote for him? That is the only reason I can think of that he is still in the game and Anwar is out. What's your take on it?

I watched American Idol once, but everybody screeched the same. I think you probably right about the voting system -- what a scam they can't limit people to just one vote.

I honestly think Anwar has a very average voice. Sure, he beats Scott in the Idol 'looks' department but for me, Scott wins on vocal talent.

But after Nadia left I lost interest anyway.

Oh...followed you over from Michele's.

Hi! I'm suffering from some kind of allergies. Maybe it's the pollen.

As for American Idol, I like Scott's voice, but thought Anthony should have been out before Anwar.

Nice to meet you. I've been seeing your name everywhere so thought I should come visit.

Though I don't like Scott's history much (he's got violent tendancies) I have to say I really like his voice. He has excellent control and range. I was actually happy to see Anwar leave - if only for his cocky "I'm the music teacher here so I should win" attitude. I think Anthony should have been gone two weeks ago.
Wow! That's a lot of pollen! I like your writings - I'll be back often.

Same here on the pollen, I drive a Taurus and yes, it is hunter green and yes, it is caked with ugly yellow pollen. The good news is they say all the pollen should be minimal by this next friday!!! You must live in the south!

I never saw the "cocky" side of anwar... He has seemed quite humble to me. He did have the better voice. I don't like scott either and he should have been gone weeks ago. He kinda creeps me out.
My picks for top two are Bo Bice and Carrie Underwood... from there it will be a toss up. (Constantine has the teen "Bobby Sherman" fantasy vote, so I am afraid that an undeserving will be in the top three.)

Nice to see you again. I'll stop back this evening when I have time, but to respond, I was answering Dukakis to strep. Does that help?
