Surprisingly, even though Idol wasn't on last night, there's a heck of a lot of talk about it today. Not that any of it amounts to much of anything, but hey, it's a slow news day (again), and I'll take what I can get. If that means random Idol speculation from Simon Cowell, so be it. Also, there's some news on that Gossip Girl spinoff that's making this TV nerd pretty happy.
It's Wednesday, or hump day as those always peppy radio DJ's used to be obsessed with calling it (Do they still? I never listen to morning "drive-time" shows any more). And "hump day" is a stupid term for it anyway, but what the hell, this abbreviated week is already half over and now it is time to start cementing your weekend plans. Which, if you are me, involve digging through my closet looking for my old mix tapes, because the first news item has me feeling a little retro nostalgic.
