Life List Day 2 - The American Idol Drinking Game

If I’d known how amazing this episode of American Idol would be, I wouldn’t have bothered with the drinking game. That little girl crying! It was so ugly and fantastic! If you missed it, teen heartthrob Sanjaya made a fan cry.

I had flashbacks to the time I met Donny Osmond at a volunteer event—only I was 39, not 10, I more giggled than cried, and he asked me if I had any Advil. (I did—and yes, I AM proud to be Donny Osmond’s over-the-counter drug lord.)

My neighbor, Irina, and I watch AI together every Tuesday. Usually we have a lovely glass of wine. To try something new, I instituted this game:

American Idol Drinking Game

Rules: Take a drink every time...

Anyone says "pitchy"
- says "dawg"
- dresses down a contestant for daring to take on a song by the great Whitney, Mariah, Celine or Stevie (as in Wonder)
- punches Simon
- says a contestant looks beautiful
- feels his man-breasts
- says "if I'm being honest..."

My only disappointment was the judges were on their best behavior tonight. I need to have more reasons to drink! Any ideas for other AI moments we could add to the drinking game?

Have you ever actually made it to the END of an AI episode while doing your alcoholic gaming thing? I haven't tried it, but I'm betting that by mid-program, the booze would get the better of you and what the hell, forget the game and just suck on the suds!

Which brings me to Day 1 of your blog. All I can say is pop that cork and pour!pour!pour! You deserve it, with a book coming out in such a BIG way (yes, I looked at your website, too!).
I read Flip-Flopped, and laughed my you-know-what off. Can't wait to see what you do in your new book to top the erotic origami bit!

I'm glad to see that there are so many variations of the AI Drinking Game. Mine is much simpler:
Step 1 - set Tivo to record, just in case anyone has a poopy accident and I have to leave the room.
Step 2 - pour wine into cheap wine glass and set on a surface higher than a 4-year-old can reach. Sip.
Step 3 - engage kids in some sort of distraction (like bath) so we can watch in relative peace. Sip wine.
Step 4 - Gulp as much wine as possible while reminding kids about the rules regarding unauthorized water violations (everything out of the tub is out of bounds) and/or unauthorized soaping violations.
Step 5 - Pause Tivo to rescue child from accidental head-soaping. Sip on the way.
Step 6 - Get kids to bed while Tivo remains paused (hopefully in a good spot, like Ashley crying or something)
Step 7 - Scamper from kids room back to Tivo'ed show, pour your REAL glass of wine, sip and enjoy no matter what's going on.
