New Ellerbee American Idol Scoring System

I know, I know, we've sworn off TV for a month... which is going quite swimmingly, I might add. But it's American Idol season and Jeff and I have been TiVo ing Idol and last night I finally gave in and watched it with him. It was the top 36 and our first 48 minutes alone... together... in I don't know how long.
Jeff and I came up with our new Idol scoring system... and that would be the "goose bump" monitor.

goose bumps on the arms... 1 point

goose bumps on the back of the neck... 2 points

overall body goose bumps... 3 points

We will continue this new Ellerbee American Idol scoring system throughout the entire competition.
Alexis Grace......2 points

Danny Gokey ...... 3 ++++++ points

I still have goose bumps from Danny's performance last night. Here's to another great season of late night dates with my husband... watching TiVo'd Idol... locked in my bedroom... with chocolate... after all the children have been put away... pretending that we have any authority or idea what we're talking about when we say that the singers sound "pitchy." What an exciting life we have when TiVo'd prime time is an exciting date night.
