March 10, 2008 - Day 32 (or 33)
>> Ryan is Head of Household - Sharon and James are nominated <<
Merriam Webster says:
1. noun: a crisp cake of batter baked in a waffle iron
2. intransitive verb: equivocate, vacillate (waffled on the important issues); also: yo-yo, flip-flop
Now they've got both kinds in there.. the noun is slop flavor, and the verb is typical hamster behavior
Yesterday's coup surprisingly came off as planned and its effects were great fun for us, but I expect much waffling (verb) between here and Wednesday when they cast official votes with Julie, and I'm not going to follow the back & forth.. but keep in mind that Sharon was the original target, and they very often do remember about original targets before voting time
There wasn't a lot else going on.. Sharon said she wouldn't campaign, yet she made a beeline for strange lounge-fellows Ryan & Joshuah, and later had a hammock session with Ryan (their first convo?).. she also chatted at length with Matt.. James is getting around too but it seems to be taking more of a toll on him
He woke up to join the boys for a game with their new toy basketball set.. Ryan & Matt both did pretty well but Adam sunk the most baskets, at least when I was watching.. they bitched about Natalie's and/or Sheila's cooking - while waiting to be fed by them.. pretty much everyone is bitching about everyone anymore, and it's getting very tedious
Alas, no booze
They probably won't get any tomorrow either, since BB seems to think it'll make them show up late for the live show, or something
James went face down again for awhile (Joshuah did the same for some reason).. James seems resigned to leaving but gave a rare comic performance tonight about being "in the process of eviction", culminating with shouting how he was kicked out by "America's most boringest person.. she has a shawl, reads the Bible, talks to guinea pigs"
Joshuah's paranoia developed further: he decided Matt & Natalie and Adam & Sheila were indeed couples, and he went on from there.. by the end of the night, they were wondering which of them were related to each other, even after they'd said how bad it was that Big Brother did that to Cowboy & Nakomis.. they also said that was BB2
Natalie heard about Matt kissing Sharon, and finally confronted him after a couple hints to him earlier in the day that something was coming.. he lied, saying it was just a smack after the pool makeout orgy.. you got the idea he's had practice doing this particular dance.. Natalie said she just didn't want to look stupid on national tv - sorry Nat, but CBS has been working overtime on that one
Chelsia re-pinked her streak and James his 'hawk.. yep, Adam's still there.. Joshuah got out the rule book to find out if he could abstain from voting in finals.. again, their ignorance and/or stupidity showed up since the rulebook spells out the finals & jury scenario, and the winner's pay.. why they all ass-umed they'd stay coupled all the way with all the paperwork they've signed is beyond me
Like clockwork, volume 2
Tonight the James & Chelsia makeout blackout was on Feed 3
Everyone had gone to bed.. she came out from a long Diary session and crawled in with James
Just as he climbed on top of her, Feed 3 switched from this..
Do they think nobody notices this stuff time after time? Everybody has noticed it
Hmm, maybe a sponsor, or maybe her dad's a big cheese for State Farm Insurance
Basketball plus Will Smith flyover; Sequester & sex chat, Sharon gripes, plus bonus decipher Adam game; Another Adam sex story; James' "eviction process"; and Natalie confronts Matt about kissing Sharon are posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Inspiration AWOL edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value
Sunday's show had a full 9 minutes of recap from Wednesday's - I guess since everyone was watching 'Idol' then? But not many have been watching Sunday installments either so why bother rehashing that much? They're still rerunning the Matt/Natalie junk even though it's very old news.. they can add all the Psycho music they want, but the fact is Matt volunteered to continue sharing a bed with Natalie soon after the live show ended, and he has been. Tinkly piano for Natalie's Bible class, the Amber/Jameka organ for Joshuah's prayer of 8 days ago, and sappy romance guitar for James/Chelsia: the BB soundtrack tells gullible viewers what to think more than their sloppy edits do. They throw another bikini comp at us and yet with all the scandalous footage of Natalie they've got, the best they could find for her was 'X, Y, and, Z' - well, that was a good one. Joshuah's solo disco happy dance won't help him much with CBS having now aired him trashing Amanda, Allison, Jen and Natalie; but that series of misogynist comments for their handful of viewers is nothing to Josh turning up on Perez Hilton and the National Enquirer as a drug-crazed stripper. All in all, a wasted show in my opinion and a long fall from last Wednesday's, especially considering the wealth of material they have to build from. Matt put it best on the feeds when talking about what would air tonight: 'nominations, food competition, and random acts of violence' - unfortunately for viewers, they left out the violence.
Paired with Sheila
He was the best at b-ball today but he still brings alarming expressions, incomprehensible speedraps, and now his "double deuces" story - gah. "I wonder at what point in Adam's life he looked in the mirror and said 'I have the makings to be a tv star.' " © Attw x
Paired with James
I've decided I don't really care for showmances, particularly the type where the participants just lay around with each other all day. This one won't last anyway: her daddy will see to that. I hope if James goes that she'll rejoin the BB9 game and more importantly, the feedster show, already in progress.
Paired with Chelsia
See Chelsia, but he put on a good show tonight for a minute, easily worth ups for the day since it included Sharon's blue blankieshawl thingy. He also said about Jen 'The little skeleton with blond hair fucked me over.'
Paired with Neil Sharon
This guy already has third month paranoia and they're only one month in, plus he keeps wigging out when he's the only one who hasn't been nominated. While talking about how much support he must be getting from the gay community (since 'they all support gays on tv') and how famous he must be, he earned the Line of the Day award with 'All the gays know who Dustin and the other one was.' Yep, he said it.. the famous 'other one'.
Paired with Natalie
I've never seen a guy dance around 'No, I didn't kiss her' outside of the movies before, and it was amazing. He had it all down pat and probably convinced Natalie that he was telling the truth.. for now. She's got finely honed instincts though - even if she's not sure what to do with them - and she'll question this one again sooner or later. She'll start to wonder why Sharon of all people would make that up?
Paired with Matt
Courtesy ups since she said over & over (like she says most things) that she doesn't want to be made out to look dumb on tv, and that seems to be CBS's prime goal this season, so far anyway. And they got some more footage tonight to string along that storyline a bit longer: nevermind her nail polish study aids, puzzle theories, strip shows & lap dances. She makes some blunders for sure, but they're cute for the most part and most of her personality seems so out of whack with her risqué side that she's just fascinating to watch, especially when her wheels are turning.
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Jen's boyfriend Paired with Allison
I didn't see much of him today, and I didn't listen to his convo with Sharon but I imagine he thought it was amusing since they've rarely spoken before - if ever.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
She's still in there, not realizing Joshuah has added her to his trashing list when she's not around - after all, she is female. She's also doing a lot of 'not campaigning' by having lots of convos with virtual strangers. I'm sure she's a nice person with lots of good qualities, but this is supposed to be a tv show: James's 'America's most boringest person' might stick.
Paired with Adam
I saw her around the feeds a lot today but I didn't listen to her. If I knew when to catch whatever she's saying the first time, I would tune in for it, but my eyes glaze over from her everlasting reruns and I end up having no idea what she's talking about.
Paired with Ryan
She called it manipulation - I call it emotional blackmail with a lot of 'poor me' thrown in. One of the most delusional hamsters ever (and that's saying something), she's the poster girl for Can Dish It Out But Can't Take It. She did give us some confrontation doozies and fireworks deluxe but trust her, like one million percent, she does not care.
Paired with Amanda
He started out looking like he was on board with Matt's showmance plan and CBS picked up that angle, but then we got to know a bright, charismatic, and goofy guy who had everything going for him in there except his partner. His diplomacy was remarkable and he might have gone the distance, but he went out as another casualty of 'Til Death Do You Part'.
Paired with Alex
She began with hysterics & drama and was at the center of the biggest BB fight ever, but she went out with more of a whimper than a bang. Her moods dropped as fast as her blood sugar but to her credit, she rebounded just as fast. She & Allison had dual 911 events, but Amanda's collapse brought unexpected (and uniformed) guests into the habitat and onto the air.
Ryan's girlfriend/Paired with Parker
She & Ryan could have gone far if she hadn't opened her mouth in the first days. She made loads of enemies in a short time and took Parker down with her. She'll be remembered for super-quickie sex in the bathroom and a rash on her backside.. hmm, coincidence?
Paired with Jen
He was good watching at first til he gave up and went on strike. He bounced back a bit at the end but his doom came early when partner Jen couldn't keep her trap shut about her & Ryan. She had to go, and he was just the innocent bystander casualty. 'I'm sick of people's dumbass assinine ass comments' might be Line of the Season.
Paired with Joshuah
He left suddenly and mysteriously but wrote on his MySpace that he didn't leave for health reasons and that he won't be back. He seems like a good guy and I wish him well.. he's probably lucky he got out when he did, unscathed.
Paired with Sharon (his ex)
Gone before the feeds kicked in: he didn't even make an appearance. All that potential for rehashing their breakup and/or a jealous rage up in smoke. To make it worse, he & Sharon didn't even get an exit interview in Julie's boudoir - how rude!

Jacob would make or break Sharon's game, bring angry sex potential, and we'd find out what he looks like

Parker would be entertaining and probably smarter the 2nd time, and he'd make the sponsors happy
Amanda would create chaos and cause fights, cry a lot and make excuses
Alex would be funny and flirty, talk in funny voices, do talk shows, and probably be a nice guy again
Allison would be Allison, and would beat Kaysar's 3 eviction record by combining them in the same season, and unanimously

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.
