This is one of those days.
FINALLY! The show decided to get engaing! The house had been squarely divded into two alliances:
After veto, Eric and Maggie were the two on the block. As they are not allowed to vote for eviction, and neither was Kaysar as Head of Household, that meant it was five votes for Alliance 1 (or as they call themselves, The Sovereign 6, you can read about it in Kaysar’s HoH blog entry.) to Alliance 2′s four votes. It was a lock Eric was going, and he did.
So, The Sovereign 6 were feeling darn secure that the house was now there’s to control, oh who cared about the pesky HoH competition, they were going to control the house, no one was going to stand in their way, feel our power, fear us, FEAR…..what? What do you mean Maggie won HoH? That’s…that’s not possible. That means that Alliance 2 will control the house for a week. NO!
hehehehehe I love it when this happens in a reality show. An alliance will think they have the game sewn up, but they get cocky too early and overplay their hands. Such is the fate of The Soverign 6. Let’s face it, Maggie will nominate two of them, even if they win veto, she will replace the saved member with another member of the team. She will effectively make them feed on themselves and campaign against themselves. YES! I love it when this happens!
Next week will be a replay of this week when it comes to HoH, but for now, Kaysar and his ego are learning a very important lesson, the lesson of the reality wildcard. Every show has them, wether it be Survivor’s immunity or Big Brother’s HoH, never count out the wild card.
The other rule, don’t name your alliance. It is ALWAYS a bad idea.
Google “Your name is”, leaving in the quotation marks, and adding your own name– for example: “Sean is”. Then pick your top ten favorite responses. Or you can just go to googlism.com
1. sean is ssooooo hottttt (well…duh!)
2. sean is a total wanker (hey!)
3. sean is using his british (bangers & mash please!)
4. sean is mine (but…who are you?)
5. sean is/is not (huh?)
6. sean is teaching class tonight? (I stopped teaching night classes years ago!)
7. sean is currently a post (stands very still)
8. sean is always at work (ain’t that the truth)
9. sean is incredibly cute (you’re so sweet!)
10. sean is a very active ambassador for afdr (Action Figure Defense Regiment?)
Please go help my friend with her research assignment. This is strictly a survey, not one of my stupid meme/blogthings.
Lots of shifting alliances, finally! Now Kaysar, Janelle, James, Sarah, Howie and Rachel have formed an alliance. With that plan in place, they decided to compete hard for the Power Of Veto to pull James off of the nomination block, and change the possible eviction nominee to Eric. The nice twist to this was it meant Eric was up against his own secret pairs partner, Maggie. Ruh-roh Raggy! Adios to another secret pair team.
At the POV competition, it was decided James would win so he could take himself off the block. From there it was just fighting and scratching as everyone got angry over the shifting alliances. Yay! Nasty time….AT LAST!
My biggest question now is, everyone is saying Eric has lived up to his word in the house. For the life of me, I can not figure out what in the world everyone is talking about. Yeah, he’s a bossy pain-in-the-butt, but I have not seen him break his word. Oh well. Like everyone else is so honorable.

Hell’s Kitchen on it’s way to the wrap up, and we are down to the last three contestants as this episode opens. Jessica, Michael and Ralph head back to the dorm, after Elsie’s eviction, and are greeted by champagne so they can celebrate being the final 3. Jessica gets blasted, Ralph looks tipsy, Michael appears to be…well…Michael.
After heading to bed in a dunken stupor, the phone rings at 4 AM and Michael answers. They are to meet Ramsay in the kitchen on the double due to an emergancy. After some rangling, they all got there and discovered that not everything in a resturant runs smoothly. The baker was going to be unable to deliver the bread for that nights service. It was up to the hapless, tired and dunken crew to make all the necessary bread. After two hours of working at it, Jessica, who had really done nothing, was sent off to bed by Mike and Ralph. She showed back up an hour later, all perky and ready to go, too bad they only had about an hour of work left. All three headed to bed at 8, just to be woken up at 10 for their next challange.
This time, it was mastering making a souffl?, not an easy task. Ramsay demonstrates, the idjits follow along, and in order the winners are Ralph, Michael and Jessica. Their prize? Choosing what dish they will put their own twist on that night to carry them through to the final two. Ralph takes beef (filet mignon), Michael takes tuna (sesame crusted tuna) and that leaves Jessica with chicken (stuffed chicken breast). As dinner approaches, they do not know their families are present and will help in the judging. Part of Ramsay’s decesion will be based on customer feedback of their dishes.
Long story short, Jessica flubs up everything, even to the point of asking Ramsay for help. HA! That was stupid! In the final tally of dishes, the filet was most popular, then chicken and finally the tuna. As customer feedback matters though, we still didn’t have an answer.
Unaware of who prepared what, the final threes families case their votes at the end of their meals. They were:
Ralph’s family – tuna, tuna, tuna
Jessica’s family – tuna, chicken, filet mignon
Michael’s family – filet mignon, filet mignon, tuna
Meaning the final total was Michael gets five vote, Jessica had one and three for Ralph. With the curshing of the votes, Jessica is sent home.
Next week, Ralph and Michael face off with each running their “own” resturant, and the help of the banished contestants. Here and now, I am calling Michael as the winner, but we shall see.
You’re a Ravenpuff!: You are a very analytical and
ingenius person, someone that likes to invent
new things. The way you look at life is with
wonder, and sometimes you’re even a little
naive. But people love you for that trait and
they feel the need to protect you from the
harsh facts of life so that you can retain your
innocence. You are very capable person and when
there is trouble people turn to you because
you’re able to stay calm and collected. You
like balance in your life and you try not to
make many waves. Even still, if there is
something that you believe strongly in, you
will commit yourself totally to that cause.
Your weakness is that sometimes you can be
indecisive and perfectionist, especially about
little details and you drive people crazy
sometimes with these traits. With the
innocence of a Hufflepuff and the calm of a
Ravenclaw you will be loved in life!
I was not aware that “turd blossom” was now considered a term to risque for some newspapers. According to this article, some newspapers took offense at todays comic strip of Doonesbury for use of the term. Here is the strip itself:
One of the things I have always loved about Gary Trudeau is that all political people are his targets, and thus, he can be enjoyed by all people, no matter what their political affiliation. Was it that took offense at Karl Rove being the subject of the joke? Or was it the term itself? Whatever the reason, censorship is never a good thing, and on something this small, it just speaks ill of the mindset of our country as a whole.

A few days ago, Microsoft made the big announcment about the long delayed next version of Windows. While it has been in devolopment for quite sometime under the name “Longhorn”, Microsoft has now announced the official and final name. Ladies and gentleman, I give you………Windows Vista.
Has there ever been an unsexier name for an operating system? Well…yeah, IBM’s O/S 2 Warp comes to mind, but you have to admit, Windows Vista just doesn’t roll off the tounge. Let’s even disregard the awful amount of time this sytem has been in devolopment (long story short, around 4 years), and the fact they are already stripping features out of it, in all that time, they couldn’t come up with a better name?
