This site isn't about who should win, who will win, who I'd be friends with, or who is cute. It's about watching hamsters: which ones are doing what and why. Which are fun and which are dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! More to come, bookmark & come back! .. that dingo
8/29/04 - Day 59 >> to the future >> dwell in the past >> latest
Let's review things a bit, Diane
Everyone's in an uproar about a kiss. Again.
I don't like to post what I didn't witness, and I didn't see Cowboy telling Drew he saw Marvin & Diane kiss, so I don't know if he's referring to a quick peck last Thursday (I didn't think it was anything, and it's only mentioned in passing at TV Updates) or one way back on August 5 also at TV Updates - I have no clue what that was about! The other one I know of is below - Drew was present.
Either way, Diane's now scurrying around telling her girls - and Drew - that Marvin initiated it and that he must go. We've heard her complaints about him being a 'groper' and 'harasser' a lot - but not lately - until today. I caught her telling Nik & Karen 'now every time he comes around me I cringe' and 'I just want you to know I don't go around kissing Marvin!' Nik used the word 'violated' and said that they need to be able to feel 'safe.'
This whole 'flirt 'n cry harassment' style of Diane's is one of the first things that caught my attention about her. I'd hear the words, then I'd see the conflicting actions, and wonder WTF! Without getting into a big serious thing here, I have to wonder if this is Diane 'playing the game' or if it's merely Diane being Diane.. or if there's a difference. But if she's making such serious character accusations against Marvin, given the evidence below and elsewhere, she'd best watch out for that ol' karma boomerang.
Each of these scenes was initiated by Diane.. decide for yourself if she's a victim:
(left to right) Last night during condom volleyball
August 26 - about 45 minutes after the timestamp of the TV Updates post linked above
August 23 - a well planned striptease/lap dance - encouraged by Drew - reminiscent of the one she did for Cowboy
August 17 - she climbed onto his bed while he was napping to talk game (and later told Drew that Marvin had approached her)
August 17 again - she joined him in the hammock
August 10 - "I'll give you $10 if you can pick me up right off the ground right now"
July 28 - she straddled Marv and gave him a massage.. later told Drew she "had to"
July 27 - she left girls' group to join him at the hot tub, started rubbing his shoulders
July 25 - she joined him in the hammock and played with his hand - he said "hey this is my first time in the hammock with a chick!" (these were Jase/Holly days)
The pic above of Diane on Marvin's lap was also way back around July 25: her cries of 'groping' and 'harassment' were already in full swing but she's continued to approach him socially, strategically, and flirtatiously since.. tonight she's hanging out with him as usual, and not cringing at all.. so what's the deal with all that, Diane?
Moving on.. another slo-o-o-o-w Sunday in the habitat..
Diane provides a segue, telling Nik & Karen about gropes, kisses, etc. -
she is fun to watch when she tells a story!
Nakomis talks about "waddles - that floppy skin under your chin that old people get"..
she'll pierce hers, but for now she slaps it away.. Drew comes in & slaps her (playing!)
Karen's having a really bad hair day! but recovers nicely..
Drew seems pleased with yesterday's haircut.. Nik is going for hat-hair
Cowboy wins the call from home and finally speaks with the lovely April,
then falls in place for afternoon body count
Diane treadmills inside - Adria lifts outside (who'd win a face-off? a sucker bet..)
All sit down to a silent dinner except Diane & Karen, who've been eating all day
Drew and Adria have a long, long talk.. he talks (badly) about Diane and Marvin; she talks (badly) about Karen and Marvin.. they both complain about people talking about others behind their backs.. Adria and Karen also have a long, long talk - same story
Much of what Drew says Diane's told him between the sheets, between kisses and fingerpaints (many not true).. most of what Adria says we've heard already many times
I had a bunch of quotes here, but it's all so tedious.. they're all as bad as each other
Here & there they talk about other things: excuses to get out of work (Diane & Nik have used some doozies!), how much Diane weighs.. uh-oh, there she goes again!
Karen: I'm tired of getting hammered by them (twins)
Diane: Now you know what I went through for weeks and weeks!
Drew: Who do you think the strongest alliance is right now?
Diane: You think you can tell how much I weigh by lifting me up? Ok!
Diane: I'm going to baste in the sun tomorrow
Just when I'm ready to give up on them, they get a little goony again :)
I really don't want to have to rely on this kind of thing
(does she think those things are fooling anyone?)
Let's face it: the hamsters just aren't very fun lately
Maybe it's cabin fever.. maybe it's mid-point numbers stress.. maybe they've finally gotten to know each other a bit, told each other all their stories, and discovered they just don't like each other very much
Much of the time all they do is whisper horrible things about each other, and viewers are saying worse things about all of them.. boards turn on individuals in the house as a mob - one person's an easier target today than yesterday - it's depressing, and hateful
There's a fine line between poking fun and being vicious..
I'm not always sure where that line is
