Another year and another Calgarian on Canadian Idol. That’s right, Calgary’s own Annika Odegard is in the Top 18 for this year’s biggest televised talent show.

Although you wouldn’t know it from her Top 22 performance I’ve heard that Annika is a wonderfully talented singer and I wish her all the best. But let’s get one thing straight Calgary.

You. Don’t. Know. Her. Ok, maybe a handful of you do. But while she is on the show, I do not want to hear the following statements:

-“I have a friend who used to babysit her”
-“I once had an audition with her”
-“I saw her once at Market Mall (This applies to Chinook, Southland, Northland, Marlborough)”
-“I live in her subdivision”
-“I once pushed in front of her to be that very last person the C-Train will hold”

For the record: None of these statements or variations of them will make you any cooler or any type of a better person. My opinion of you will not change for the better, if anything it will slide slightly in the negative.

Aren’t you sick of people saying they know someone involved in Brokeback Mountain? (Guess what, it didn’t win the Oscar, so it is no better than Independence Day.) Why Calgary? Why must you tell me about your association to Annika? I will cheer her on. cause she is from Calgary, not because you once passed her at the Lilac Festival.

Thank you.

(For the record, she was in the Storybook play after the one I was in! What do I get?)

  1. My wife and i were very glad that John could do his web research out of the ideas he acquired while using the site. It’s not at all simplistic to simply possibly be giving away points that men and women may have been trying to sell. And now we grasp we have got you to give thanks to because of that. The type of explanations you made, the easy site menu, the relationships you can give support to create – it’s everything powerful, and it’s really letting our son and us imagine that that matter is amusing, and that is quite mandatory. Many thanks for all the pieces!
