I watch American Idol.

Oh, shut up, you do, too.

My point is that next week they're doing Neil Diamond's music.

Sweet Caroline I'm excited! I've been a Neil Diamond fan since I was like 9. I fell in love with him when I was about 12. Dad had a tape of his in the Mazda while he, Scott and I drove 2 hours out to Box Elder County to go rabbit hunting.

Maybe I've gone one confession too far.

Sorry to say it, Mindy, but I don't watch American Idol. I've tried, but just can't get into it. I'm more of a So You Think You Can Dance kinda girl.

There's really no point to this comment. I guess there's just something satisfying about being in the minority since I'm sure almost everyone in the blog world watches the show.

A tape, I love it- it's weird now to think of tapes. I love even more that you went with your dad and brother rabbit hunting! So cool. You need to add "hunter" to your list of things you are under your pic. :)

It's kind of embarrassing to imagine you going out rabbit hunting. Missing teeth. Chewing tobacco. Dating your cousins. Overalls. No shoes. Scott.

We're all glad you are who you are now...

I confess...I watch it. I can't believe that chick, Carley, got the boot!
Neil Diamond? How old are you?

Oh I totally love American Idol this year, so I know what you mean. Although I loved Andrew Lloyd Webber week the best so far.

I fell in love with Neil Diamond in high school. When KC and I started dating years later, I used to listen to Hello Again and think of him.

How can I have known you this long and not known of your love for Neil? I *adore* Neil Diamond and have seen him in concert 4 times (including the Houston Rodeo when I was pregnant with G). He has a new album coming out and it looks like it is going to be as good as the last one (a return to the early years).

Do I sound a little obsessed? Really, I'm not, but I once found a Neil Diamond concert jacket in a thrift store and was so excited I began to cry.

I actually don't watch American Idol, but I would for some Neil action. Can you tell em when it's on?

We record it and watch it when the kiddos are in bed. I never miss it!

Neil is coming to TX in October. Tickets went on sale today.

I Want to Hear From You!
