"Do You Want To Know A Secret" - Beatles, 1963

The suspense is over, thanks to Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling.

John and I were trying our best to avoid learning who had won American Idol until we could see the combination of Tuesday and Wednesday night's American broadcasts, being shown here in Britain tomorrow night. We avoided reading Yahoo and Google news. We've avoided CNN. We didn't even listen to British news this morning, fearful that they might just see fit to report that either Katharine or Taylor had won. Our American friends have been absolute saints to not let it slip, and we thank all of you so much for being so careful!

But this evening, I was reading a "breaking news" e-mail from CNN about the Enron verdicts. I figured that was safe. But NOOOOOOO. At the bottom of the e-mail was an ad for CNN's "Larry King Live", featuring an interview with the new American Idol --- Taylor Hicks.

ARGH......................!!!!!!! now we know. It's not the worst thing that has ever happened. And we're absolutely delighted with the news anyway.

And we are still very excited to see tonight's broadcast of the finals on ITV2, while eating John's world-famous tacos! (Yes, it's true -- my English husby makes the best crispy tacos in the entire world. Go figure!)

Wow, Janet, that is true dedication and seems that with so many ways to see and hear news today, it's almost impossible to avoid getting the info.
I'm a big Taylor fan, so Hurray for him. But I watched some of that Larry King interview, and it really seems as if Katherine is treating herself as the "winner" too...hmmmmm.
(any special recipe for those tacos?!)
