Dream A Dream

Isn't it a cryin' shame that we are judged mostly by how we look compared to the rest of society?

I'm not a big American Idol fan, but I came across this and it totally blew me away. Apparently it blew away the judges and audience also.
Please take a minute to watch.
Did it bring goose bumps or tears?
It gave me both. I've listened to it about 10 times.

You know what's sad? This woman has the voice of an angel. She's every bit as good as Elaine Paige, Betty Buckley or Patti Lupone, but no one bothered to get past her looks. Look at the faces in the audience before she started singing. They were getting ready to laugh at her.

I wonder were she would be right now if she actually looked like Elaine Paige? Probably staring in Les Miserables.
I can relate Susan. Really, I can.

Being suddenly single after your youth and body are shot to shit isn't much fun either. It infuriates me when I see men with these young beautiful girls with a personality of a brick wall. I think, geeze, don't they realize what they are missing. Don't they ever want to have a conversation?
Sigh, I guess not. At least not until they outlaw Viagra. It lets these old fools think they can keep up with the young ones, which is a whole other post........

Oh well, here's to all the Susan Boyle's of the world! And lets wish for the day when one sees no difference between her and Elaine Paige. ........... Or me and Audrey Hepburn.
I know, I know. Hey, I'm dreaming a dream OK?

Late Edition: Since I mentioned Viagara. My father is in the hospital. He will be fine. He's almost 85 years old. His heart is acting up.
But yesterday morning while we were in the Dr. office, I spotted this add.

WTF? Medicare covers Viagra? Come on folks. And we wonder why the country is going broke!

First of all, Eileen....
You ruined my mascara. I had to close my office door in the middle of watching this amazing performance. Truly breathtaking.....all of it.
Now, I have everyone on my hallway watching it too...
Second--you truly have an uncanny and insightful way to linking things together.
Third and most importantly--men definitely don't know what they are missing in you.
And, yes, I loved Niagara On The Lake!
Hope your dad is okay!

Well I wasn't necessarily talking about me, just old ladies like me in general.
Me? I guess I had my time. For 20 years. That will just have to be enough.

Thanks for the compliment.
