Welcome to the Hotel Archuleta … such a lovely place, such a lovely face

I just got back David Detox … aka a week’s vacation where, for the first time in a long time, I spent days on end away from computers and all things David Archuleta. (Well, not all things, I was in Honduras, after all, lol)

And rather than jump right back into uber-fan mode, I was feeling pretty good about being able to step away and maybe get back to real-life a little more. I mean, David’s taking a well-deserved break himself, taking time to regroup, recharge, plan for the future, so why not us?

Not gonna lie, as much as I still love the guy to pieces, it’s been nice to feel more “normal” again. … Then this:

He’s thanked us a gazillion times before, so why did this one hit me so hard? It’s only 44 seconds long, for Pete’s sake!!!

Is it because I’ve been out of the loop? ‘Cause his message was so heartfelt? ‘Cause we know how much he needs our support right now? ‘Cause Mr. Random wasn’t being random at all?

Maybe it’s all that … but most of all it just made me so happy to know that David knows that we’re behind him 100% no matter what. We might not think he notices our crazy poll voting, youTube views & comments, tweet-spamming and blog-a-thons but, you know what? He does. *toast*

P.S. Just ‘cuz:

    “So heartfelt” Yep, that’s why.
    I think the reason this hits so hard is because it is so out of left field, in response to nothing in particular.
    He said it just because he meant it. He was feeling it.
    He is such a love. ♥

    p.s. So glad you are back.

    Tofan, I think the intro sets the tone, the way he says, “I gotta tell ya, how impressed I am with this kid” He sounds a bit archu-struck if you ask me.

    It is nice to get away from the archu-vortex for a while (although we missed you!).

    But seriously how could anyone stay away from him for good??? His message to his fans was so sweet. He is too much <33333

      • abanana77 says:

        Lol totally necessary to have the tags “pinecone” and both “pine” & “cone” hahahaha. Sometimes I wonder how his brain works. Hahaha

    Not just you TOfan, David has made my heart explode a little again. Not the first time but this was very unexpected and straight from the most sincere, most grateful heart in the music business. ❤
    What a sweetheart. That's sweet….heart (as in pine….cone). 🙂
    Gosh I love the way David expresses himself, love the way his mind and heart work. Just lays it out there for us, as real as can be. He is just one big expression of love, completely honest and a true expression of himself. Love that a lot.

    Actually, his thank you video made me think of the very first video blog David ever did, just before the A.I. tour at the tender age of 17. That first video also made my heart explode, it was so incredibly sweet, humble and appreciative and this video gave me some of those same feelings….except that we now have a more mature appreciative David thanking us. ❤
    And yes…welcome back TOfan!

    TOfan – So glad you are back!!!

    Why did this video hit so hard – well for me it was the “constant support your guys have always shown” that did it. Verklempt again and again and again………Eeeeeeep a la refnaf style. 😀

    I love your AI “Where is WaldoArchuleta” photo puzzle.

    “Mirrors on the ceiling,
    The pink champagne on ice
    And she said ’we are all just prisoners here, of our own device’”
    (*ahem, cough, cough*)

    Welcome home Tofan, you have been missed. 🙂 So glad you had a gloriously relaxing, well deserved vacation in mama Lupe’s homeland.

    Heartfelt – I think you said it all in that one little word. He is as sweet as sugar pie.

    (and thanks so much tofan. The work you do – the time, the commitment, the love – the blood, sweat and tears, is really deeply appreciated. I would feel lost without my dja homes. ♥)

    Hello TOfan and David peeps…love the title of this thread and want to read more, but am just dropping in now to post this CALL TO ACTION! MORE VOTES NEEDED! Just in case it’s not posted everywhere:
    (I know not much escapes you guys, but haven’t seen many of you over there, so just in case)

    It’s a site, judging from the commentary I’ve seen there, I’m not sure many David people regularly go to, but a lot of other Idol fans do…which is what would explain David’s current 27.51% to Adam’s 72.49%.
    And while I SO know it is we, mere adoring David fan mortals, who care who wins such things and not one bit the very subject of our obsessive voting, (he is once again a “better soul than I!!”)…we cannot help it!

    So, while you are finishing up that very close call over at Q102 …please go put your votes in at TVline too (I think you can only do one….I tried the multiple obsessive voting thing and quickly got auto-e-reprimanded.)
    Not sure we can pull it off over there, but we need our guy to have at the very least the best showing he deserves. Ok…gonna copy and paste this seme post elsewhere…meanwhile…pass it on please? Tks ~’til later 🙂
