Birthday Songs

Since this was the week the American Idol finalists sang songs from the year of their birth, we also got to see their baby pictures. (And hey, look, it's the mysterious bald guy from Fringe in the audience.)

Host Ryan Seacrest kicked off the evening by showing baby pictures of the judges. The only one who's picture wasn't cute was the one of — big surprise — fourth wheel Kara DioGuardi, who was making an unpleasant face (did the producers do that on purpose?).

NaPoWriMo: Day 8

I am participating in National Poetry Writing Month, where the goal is to write one poem a day for 30 days. During the month of April, I will be using the writing prompts at ReadWritePoem.org and posting the results.

Day eight prompt (list day)

List all of your old flames. Try to go back as far as your first kiss in the 2nd grade coat closet. Sit with your list. Depending on your mood today, choose the flame with the most sparks, or pin the list on the wall and throw a dart. Whatever your method or mood, write a poem about an old flame.
