American Idol comes to Thailand!
Needless to say, I was thrilled when I discovered a new TV channel this week... one that has shows like American Idol and Grey's Anatomy! Sam almost had me convinced that CNN and the History Channel were about the best available as I really hadn't taken any time to explore the channels for myself. I guess I'm not that much of a TV watcher. Anyway, his downfall was tuning into the History Channel during dinner last night. They were doing a show on the history of toilet paper. I couldn't believe it, but he was just sitting there watching them talk about wiping...taking it all in without giving much thought to the fact that we were eating. You know you're a History Channel junkie when you can watch something like that without thinking that it's a bit of an odd choice for the occasion! Well, that's when the search for another channel began and I'm glad to report my entertainment world has grown by leaps and bounds. Tonight we watched American Idol and plan on watching it again tomorrow. It was great... especially the performance of the song, "I'm Glad to be an American." I've always been touched by those lyrics, but even more so living outside of America. I truly am glad to be an American and am also very glad to have a new channel..one with American Idol :)
