Yeah, Amanda, I definitely didn't like Blake's hair color either. He looks SOOOOO much better with the blonde hair.

Did anyone else think that Ford commercial last night was weird? I thought it was right up Blake's alley though. Also, LaKisha looked awesome with the red streaks in her hair. Too bad she didn't keep them in after shooting the commercial. I thought they really made her look kind of sexy and current.

I think Lakiesha should be in movies after AI. She is funny, has a dead pan sense of humor and a great look. I would rather see her than listen to her sing... She sings ok, but I like her more than I like her singing. I am glad blake changed his hair. I think he is too plain looking with the blonde hair. He needs to shake things up. Too many men who are stars never invest in their looks. WOmen have to constantly change hair styles, update trends in style. It is nice to see a male performer who feels the need to shake things up. I like to see a man work as hard as a woman!

I'm a fan of Blake's and I think he might be going home tomorrow. I hope he has enough fans to keep him in. Jordin as usual was great. I hope she goes to the finals.

I really like Jordin! She has this positive energy that just seems to surround her, she makes you want to watch her.

Hubby thinks LaKisha will be going home tonight. I'd be happy if he were right, she bores me to tears. I just tune out when she's singing. She chooses the most boring songs. Ugh... I hope that Blake stays. I really enjoy his music. It's really exciting for me to hear what he's going to do. He's so talented. I really wish he would change his hair back though. He just doesn't have the same effect on me with the brown hair.

I didnt like last night show very much. None of them did an awesome job. I actually hope melinda goes home, i would be so happy. Yes she can sing, but that is all she can do, she cant dance, she cant perform and she cant make me want to buy anything she produces.

I think jordins first song was awesome. I would like for her to win, but im not sure she will. But i do think she will get an record deal no matter what.

I love blake, i like he is original, his songs werent awesome last night, but i still love him, I voted for an hour straight for him last night lol.

I like lakisha, i really dont want her to go home.

I think i will be sad no matter who goes home, unless it is melinda but i doubt that will happen

I wasn't too impressed with the performances last night...or I should say the songs...I actually didn't WATCH the performances much because I wanted to just hear the songs without any other distractions. I have to honestly say that I don't think I would have bought any of them except for maybe Jordin's first song. That was awesome.

I also really don't like Blake's dark hair...he almost reminded me of peewee herman last night. :P I still really like him though. I do think that he should not do his thing on every single song. That was one of the things I was listening too last night...couldn't imagine buying a C.D where every single song had that on it.

I also think (boy, I'm full of opinions today :lol: -- just ignore me :lol: ) Paula should shorten her comments--the more she talks the more it doesn't make sense sometimes. :P But, I still love her. ;)

Phew, where did all that come from :lol:

Blake is the only reason I'm watching the show, so I really hope he doesn't go home. I hope it's Lakisha. I'm not a big fan of Melinda but at least she's not boring every time. Not once has Lakisha sung and I was interested. Some of it's song choice, but a lot of it is delivery. I doubt Blake can win, so I hope it's Jordin.

I don't know what it is but Blake has lost my interest. I differently think his hair color makes him look plain and just dull looking. He wasn't great at his first song but I thought he could of easily won over the judges with his second but he choose a song that nobody ever heard of and I always think that's a risk. That set him up for the b-box criticism.

Lakisha is my choice to get the boot tonight. She been hanging on by a thread,...time to take the scissors to it.

Melinda's always good but that's can be boring too, she's to predictable. I like her yet I don't think she'll be a big hit with record sales. She doesn't have that youthfulness about her. She looks like a well preserved 35 year old and isn't that what we got last year with Taylor Hicks. :( I just realized how mean that sounded....sorry.

So my vote goes to Jordin to win now. I always loved her and her first song was great. She was off pitch with the second song but I think she is so young that she probably hasn't heard it that many times. I really think it's between her and Dolittle.

I didn't care for the BeeGees then or now, lol. Not my favorite night of songs at all.

I thought that Jordin did the best, and she'll be who I root for to win. I agree that it's LaKisha's turn to go home tonight.

Is Taylor Hicks even around anymore? I couldn't stand him last season. I haven't heard any of his stuff on the radio or TV or anything. Granted, he probably doesn't do any of the kinds of music that I like...

Yep, a little bit of hair grease and he would have been the spittin image. :lol:

I actually really liked the way he did the second song...I'd not heard it before either but I really liked it...too bad the judges didn't. :P

Taylor Hicks annoys me, he looks too old for what he really is. I cannot stand to look at him.

I really liked the second song also. I hadn't heard it before either, but I thought it was really good, very modern. I was shocked that the judges didn't praise him.

Taylor Hicks annoys me, he looks too old for what he really is. I cannot stand to look at him.

I am so glad that I'm not the only one that feels that strongly about Taylor Hicks. He is the embodiment of nails down a chalk board, grinding teeth, metal on metal...

Hicks drove me nuts! Always acting like Ray Charles, it was insulting. Charles did what he did because he was blind, it was just wrong to watch a man who can see do it. My kids admire me, but they don't sit on the pot pretending their poop is toxic.

I am glad Jordin is still in the competition, she is very talented and she has a great look. She always has outfits on that compliment her personality as well. John says he likes her hair better when it is curly and for awhile I agreed but last night she had it straight and then curled at the ends and it had some bounce and looked great.

You guys are funny about Taylor Hicks... He wasn't my favorite last time either!

I'm glad that it was LaKisha to go home last night.

Do you all think that they pick their clothes or someone does it for them? I just thought that most every week her outfits were awful. Someone with as big as chest as she has should NOT be wearing the things she wore!

I was sad to see lakisha go home, but i figured no way they were going to let an single mom win again. I think they want a new type of person every year. I hope it will be blake this yr, but i have an feeling it will be a girl, and how i pray its not melinda, i will not buy her music if she does.

I liked taylor hicks, just liked i like rueben, but i dont hear much about wither one of them and its kind of depressing. All i ever hear of is carrie and kelly.

paula

I seen ellen the other day, and phil and chris were on, Phil said he might not tour this summer cause of the navy, which i think is sad. I know i was upset when josh gracin didnt tour either.

    • So, do they just test your DGP like they just test my TTG?
    • The only test I have had done is the TTG because that's what I had done initially after taking matters into my own hands and going to my local health fair. Celiac is so common they do that screening at our health fair. My number was so high that my doctor didn't order other labs and went straight for a biopsy, which showed stage 3b damage. I've had my blood re-drawn (the TTG IGA) at 2 months and then at 9 months, and now. It's always just been that TTG IGA test. He hasn't ordered anything else, and has said it's not necessary for me to get the other panels done. I think that's probably because all he had at first was the TTG and he followed protocol by going for the biopsy since my number was so high. They didn't do the IGA deficiency test on me first, but Gemini said that if I were deficient my test would have been falsely negative, rather than >100. Plus my intestines showed blunting and hyperplasia, so that's how he confirmed his diagnosis. I am going to ask him why he doesn't order me the other tests though, out of curiosity. I know that the TTG tests mostly for intestinal damage and that's likely how he's monitoring my internal healing. He's always said that as long as I feel ok and my TTG is normal he isn't worried about me and said that we can just touch base annually unless symptoms arise. I've always wondered a bit about the DGP because I've never had it done, but Dr. Kim said it's not necessary to have that done (in my case). I'm sure he knows why, but I've never asked. I know others on here have suggested that I have that done, but since my doctor hasn't ordered it I haven't had it done.  The results usually come back within a week so I should know something soon. I'll repost to let you guys know how it's going. 
    • Celiac used to be considered a children's disease - so, by the old standards, you are a bit old to be diagnosed.  We now know that Celiac can start at any age. I don't know if you are a  male or a female, but untreated Celiac can lead to miscarriages and infertility.  And all the other stuff mentioned above.  
    • 19 is not young for this. One can be diagnosed at any age.  How about this stat:  before anyone understood what actually caused celiac disease, most folks diagnosed with it died.  The complications when consuming gluten affect every system of the body.  Lack of symptoms doesn’t mean there isn’t damage. The cancer risk is real.  The neuropathy risk is real.  At 19, you have a lot ahead of you that you would be willingly tossing aside. It is a real, serious disease where the treatment is only food...not drugs with side affects, not chemo, not stents or insulin.   
    • Nope, you don't have to go on a gluten free diet.  It is a choice everyday what you put into your body.  But there caveats to that -- if you continue to eat gluten, you don't know how good you could feel.  Eating gluten will eventually lead to malnutrition, osteoporosis, likely gut cancers, other autoimmune diseases, and probably an early death due to your auto immune disease.   The only thing on your list that you really have to give up is beer and even then you can drink cider.  Gluten free buns, gluten free sausages and gluten free cakes all exist and aren't terrible.  They are in the beginning, but you get used to it. So, yes, in the beginning it stinks, but like anything you get used it it and move on.
