Good morning! I don’t know about anybody else, but I just had one of the hardest weeks imaginable, just work-addled and stressful and barely coherent. Last night, I went to a holiday party that ended pretty early, only to get home and almost immediately pass out. Delicious. And next week’s only going to be worse! In fact, I’ll say it now: It’d be super if nothing of consequence happened.
Because! Let’s call today the last chance to add any final Best Of nominations (it’s not looking good for additions, tbh), so we can prep for real-deal voting next week. I’d like to throw in a few wrinkles but may simply be left out of time. So let’s get down to it — if you haven’t yet, play this week’s very good Fun, and then settle in for one weird-ass week in idol.
How Weird Was It?
It was so weird …
