Hamsterwatch Lite - hybrid version

Dustin's as relaxed today as an 8-year-old boy at summercamp should be
Due to website ownage/downage, this is a sloppy reconstruction of text & pics posted at MySpace for today.. apologies for the inconvenience & inconsistency

Until the site gets fixed and the causes isolated, I'll do a hybrid version using various resources including Myspace pics & blog, Youtube and Twitter.. links to all are always in linkage

I think this blog can be viewed by anyone.. pics can be viewed by Myspace friends only.. sorry for any inconvenience caused by either

Eric also relaxes - will he get away with tomorrow's vote too?
Anyway there's not much to report (fortunately for me).. they're on inside lockdown for the night and they're dull as dishwater, but maybe things will perk up later tonight

Dustin gave a "last night of HOH" toast over dinner for those eating.. Eric's still working on "I'd do that for a dollar" but I'm not sure who his eviction assignment is about - I don't much care either lol

Second section

Eric relaxes some more, kinda
So far it's a really boring day in there and they're on inside lockdown for 24 hours or so, so they can set up some pricey apparatus in the backyard for Thursday's HOH comp.. they're going stir crazy

Jessica tries to save us, of course, with a game of Life played with the Alice in Wonderland chess set.. the blues come along just as she's about to do Junior High Dance, and when they go away, Dustin's doing it.. what's up with that?

A bizarre food fight breaks out between Zach and Dick that kind of breaks things up for a little while

Most of them slept much of the day so I expect a long night.. Dick's got to go without cigarettes which probably won't help anything

Update: it's a first - they're all in bed not long after 4am, even Dick

Pics of the day:

I don't know what Zach's trying to say - but he isn't a monster jeez.. Daniele's getting along with Dick.. I dunno what's up with her hair.. Dick seems relaxed now, but he may be having nicotine fits tonight

Dick makes some tea to ice - and/or he's preparing tonight's weapons.. Daniele tears herself away from kissyface with Nick to mingle awhile.. She stops to say Eric's sleeping awkward, and thwaps him with a sandal

Jessica plays Life with chess: "Figure out that one, America!".. She starts 7th Grade Dance but the blues come, and then Dustin does it.. Fun's over soon enough and they're bored to tears again

Jen's bored to tears.. Jessica's bored to tears (but you get the idea she always has a cure).. Eric's bored to tears.. or is he?

Jessica relieves a bit of Eric's boredom with some footsie.. No telling if Nick & Daniele are bored to tears - this is all they do.. Dick prepares another weapon of mass destruction

It's not a tea war this time tho: it begins with a wardrobe fitting.. Later Dick says Zach was copying what he wore, so he puts on a 'kini.. Tonight's weapon: flour (for starters)

Direct hit!.. It's a reconaissance mission, with various access points.. A big fight over a little door

Zach's bed full of pita bread, mac 'n cheese cheese and M&Ms (I think).. Zach makes some concoction.. turns out it's to eat, not to retaliate.. Jen makes banana bread & deviled eggs - that she can't eat

O yea, Kail's still there - barely.. More & more feedsters would rather watch Jessica & Eric all the time.. The new hamsters have arrived - for the 2nd day in a row!

Jen does a mime routine, appropriately.. Amber doesn't.. Ok, let's have a caption contest for this one - but don't get too mean

Third section - Housecalls rant

One reason I hope my site gets up & running again ASAP is so I can remove all links to Housecalls

I happened to catch it today for the 2nd time this season.. today it was that font of BB wisdom Bunky hosting, with Lynette Rice of Entertainment Weekly - the same guest as the other show I caught.. lucky me

It's long been obvious that Housecalls people don't watch the feeds, "internet show" or no internet show, but today's episode takes the cake and I'm done with it

Among other things, one or the other of these two clowns today said the Showtime version is "better than the feeds", asked how the America's Player thing works, and said they hadn't been on the CBS BB website to know what's there.. not to mention Ms. Rice's repeated idiotic statements like she made last week also.. she went so far today as to spout opinions based on what a friend told her about a Youtube he or she watched

Well, at least I can leave Ms. Rice behind with a big, fat "I told you so" - she described herself today as a "Jen lover" but her early columns and her Housecalls appearance last week indicate very much otherwise.. it's amazing what a few tears and a glass of iced tea can accomplish, isn't it?

On a personal note, it just kills me that people like this are getting paid for their "expertise" while the rest of us who actually watch the feeds and write about Big Brother with a little bit of knowledge are scraping by on slop

Round 1: BBQ 1, Dick 0

Dustin is Head of Household
Kail & Nick are nominated

Who should Eric 'get evicted': Kail. Polls closed at midnight. He's still working on 'I'd do that for a dollar' thru Thursday.

Thursday, August 2 at 8pm - Westies can watch live thanks to Jen & Sean

Tuesday's show was 2nd for its timeslot again with a 4.7 rating and 8 share, behind 30 minutes of 'America's Got Talent' with 7.1/12 and 30 minutes of 'The Singing Bee' with 5.9/10.

EditorsPLEASE TURN UP THE VOLUME ON THE FEEDS (but not the blues music).
Regarding Tuesday's show, I'm tired of all the nit-picking about their fictionalizations: let's just jump straight to Thursday's show, in which Nick goes on a murderous rampage after being nominated, causing him to shave his head and beat Eric to a bloody pulp. He did bring Daniele & Jen together though, but exactly how he did that is too steamy for primetime CBS. (Showtime's going to release it on DVD though.) Dick & Kail kissed and made up, and she broke up with hubby Darin in Diary as a result - much to Dick's amusement, since he'd already moved on to Amber, who finally stopped crying over Dustin rebuking her advances by making a big speech about how he's happy ever after with Cap'n Crunch. Just before Julie announced the new evictee, Zach tore out of the house and through her boudoir as he'd seen a plane banner offering him a job at Discovery Channel. Jameka & Jessica won the House of Cards HOH comp in a tie thanks to yet more faulty questions, and proceeded to evict everyone else and proclaim themselves the winners.

He was on Big Brother 8. Barely. His game was like Drew's but without Diane, and without winning anything.


His & Dustin's part in the 'twist' felt legit and disturbing to eavesdrop on. Joe was chatty and catty, he told stories and entertained, and will be remembered for 'Amber from Vegas' and gonorrhea.


She & Jessica didn't fulfill the 'twist' as advertised so off she goes. She wasn't prepared for this, she moped a lot and was barely around, but she gave a good show when she had it out with all the cameras watching her.

This site isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me. It also isn't necessarily 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! Thanks for encouraging my behavior.
