Million Dollar Password Baby

So what's a network to do with all this free time on their hands waiting for the new episodes to start up again in January? Trot out an old game show with a million dollar price tag on it, of course, duh. And ever so gently wheel out Betty White to guess words like she did back in the day. Betty White is my favorite "senior" actresses, but I feared for her life after watching Million Dollar Password last night. She was totally into it, racking up points for contestants but there were so many bells and whistles, buzzers and beeps, lights flashing and dimming, I thought she would go into cardiac arrest.
Dear God bring me a new episode of LOST already.

Omarosa Wanna Be

Oh look! I have another blog. I don't know if I think this blog is going to write itself or what? I celebrated my 500th post over at Farvel Cargo, my "other" blog, at the rate I'm going with View of Sue it will be about 2012 when I reach that here.
I had planned to blog about the Survivor Finale and how happy I was that Bob won, but that and the Omarosa wanna be are old news. If you are a Survivor fan you know of who I speak when I say an Omarosa wanna be. And she will not be mentioned by name on this blog, ever. If you have to be that mean for money, you deserve the bad karma that life is going to throw at you. Nuff said.
Hopefully my head will stop spinning after baking all those cookies for Christmas long enough to post regularly. I swear if my hand mixer shows it ugly face to me again I will kick it to the street.

Shirtless Sawyer

Instead of sitting in front of my computer tonight I plan on sitting in front of my television watching my LOST DVD's. The wait for the new season is starting to get to me. I'm jonesin' for some Sawyer, shirtless preferably. And by the looks of the promo commercials he seems to have his shirt off quite a bit. Shirtless is how we last saw him at the end of season 4. So perhaps I will start with season 1 and fast forward to all the Sawyer scenes. I don't want to rush through the blessed holiday season but I can't wait for January 21, 2009!

Heroes/The 4400

I use to watch the kookamonga show The 4400. It started off promising. 4400 people dropped off in a big ball of light in a field, all missing from different time periods and all having strange "abilities". Huh. As the season continued new abilities conveniently popped up when need to complete an episode. Huh. And then a synthetic abilities drug was made to give the normal people abilities. And this guy was one of the normal people that signed up to take the abilities drug.
On Heroes Monday there was a volunteer soldier willing to take the genetically altered drug that is suppose to give people "hero powers'. Huh. It's the same freakin guy. But with shorter hair.
I've been watching Heroes this season thinking this is turning into The 4400. I think my theory has been proven right. Who's with me on the train wreck? I will continue to watch and then bash it on this blog.

24 Redemption - Meh

I watched 24 Redemption last week but I've seen it before. Tears of the Sun comes to mind. It's been done and I was bored by the two hour, 67 commercials movie.
They should have let Jack Bauer ride off into the sunset seasons ago. How much more tortured can a man get? I'm less than thrilled for 24 season 7. With every season there's a new President of the United States, so that put us in about the year 2024, give or take. A television show has jumped the shark when they start bringing people back from the dead. And that would be Tony. He's coming back, again.
So I have to decide if I really want to get into another season of Jack Bauer kicking ass. See just saying that makes me want to watch it and then there's Chloe, my favorite character, I'd miss her. I don't know what to do.

Dancing With The Stars Finale

Hey Brooke Whatshername won Dancing With The Stars. She's who I would have voted for if I still voted. But I haven't voted since Mr. Do Wap Diddy Do kept lumbering around the dance floor a few seasons ago.
Again I'd like to thank Dancing With The Stars for entertaining the hell out of me and bringing re-cap shows to a whole new level. There is no way you can miss anything on this show because they know how to re-cap until you're cross-eyed.
I watched just about the whole two hour season finale, usually I just watch the last 4 minutes of the results show, but being the finale, I thought it warranted my full attention. I dropped a few EntreCards during Miley Cyrus, not even sure if I spelled that right and don't even care.
I managed to watch House last night also, record NCIS and Fringe, watched Fringe this afternoon and will watch NCIS with the husband this evening. And I wonder why I have no clean socks.

The Fake Immunity Idol

Well Randy didn't see that coming, but the editors of Survivor made sure that everyone else on God's green earth did. I have to give kudos to Bob for making such a convincing fake Immunity Idol. Who wouldn't have thought it was real?
I confess I would have liked to see Randy win. Mainly because he decided not to kiss anyone's butt and he irritated Crystal - a lot. I'm not a Crystal fan. Crystal did make me laugh when she spouted off at Tribal Council during the voting. She elected to shout out her reason for voting for Randy instead of secretly whispering. Never saw that before. I can't think of anyone left that I want to win, they are all pretty much annoying. If I had to pick I guess I would go with Kenny, he's playing a good game.

That's What She Said



You really have to be an Office fan to get this little clip, but I had to post it because it was really funny. Poor Pam is feeling home sick. Jim is wearing a Blue Tooth ear phone so Pam can hear everything in The Office that's she's missing. And she grabbed a "That's What She Said." It was great!

Have a few questions after watching the latest episodes this season:
1. Why is Angela marrying Andy?
2. Why did Ryan want to get back with Kelly?
3. Why did Toby leave?

Those are a few things I don't understand.

Susan Lucci Never Got Jiggy Wit It.

When Susan Lucci got the boot off Dancing With the Stars last week you would have thought she won a major award. Samatha Harris asked Susan the standard yada yada what do you take from this experience yada yada question. And then the acceptance speech started. Susan grabbed on to the Samatha's microphone with both hands and thanked everyone. I didn't hear a word she said because I was fixated on that microphone. Susan Lucci had it in both hands but Samatha wasn't going to give it up, she held on and never let it go. You could see all three hands with a white knuckled, firm grip. I found a rather long clip on YouTube, but you can fast forward to almost the middle to see what I'm talking about:



It was truly time for Susan Lucci to go. She was never going to be able to get jiggy wit it, bust a move, get her groove on.................she sucked at dancing, really.

Survivor Season 17

You have to wonder after 17 seasons of Survivor why these contestants continually get surprised when they are dumped off on an island with only the clothes on their backs. They have on suits and ties or they’re in a skirt and blouse. Stuck for the duration with office wear in the jungle. Haven’t they seen the show before? Put on a pair of tactical pants guys!
I haven’t posted on Survivor this season, partly because there were too many names to remember. But now as they dwindle down I’m ready to post. Marcus was voted off tonight, making him the first member of the jury. Charlie is going to be pissed and Susie is toast. I wanted Ace to win but he was voted off last week. Now I think I’m rooting for that SOB Randy, he’s cracking me up.

The Comic Relief Has Left The Ballroom.

It is done, the comic relief has left the ballroom. No longer must we watch Dancing With The Stars cringing and waiting for those brittle bones to break. Or seeing good dancers leave to watch Cloris Leachman wander around the dance floor.
I look forward to enjoying the hour and a half show tonight and then waiting 2 days, because of election coverage, to see who gets the next ticket home.

The Huddy Kiss

'Bout damn time too!


I don't think there is a woman on the planet that is a perfect match for House, but I was happy to see The Huddy Kiss.
Huddy = House and Cuddy names mooshed together. The weird, geeky people that watched too much TV know that "Huddy" is a "ship name".
Ship name = Relationship of two people and their two names are made to make one.
Example: Brad Pitt and Anjolina Jolie = Branjolina
Be afraid if you understand this. Sleep well if you don't.

I'm Not Joining the Fringe Cult.............Yet.

I'm still watching Fringe, but haven't joined the cult. I know there are secrets and clues but I'm resisting getting involved. I only have time to be entertained, not start a full blown, obsessive investigation to the inner workings of a TV show. I am being entertained, that's why I continue to watch. I'm intrigued on how the relationship between the Mad Scientist, Walter and his son Peter will develop. Walter is stealing the show with his Mad Scientist/Repenting Dad/Kid in a Candy Store character. He can be talking about something as serious as reconstructing some one's DNA while shuffling his feet on the carpet so he can touch Peter on the ear to shock him. "Wool socks." he says. He's exhausting Peter and it's funny as hell.

Say it ain't so Maksim Chmerkovskiy, say it ain't so!

As soon as I saw her hobble out with crutches and a cast on her foot I knew all hope was gone to see Maks dance far into this season of Dancing With The Stars. Damn Misty May-Treanor's blown Achilles tendon! Just look at him!




He's as in love with himself as we all are isn't he?
Now what do we have to look forward to on Dancing With The Stars this season? Let me see..... Okay, which hip will Cloris Leachman break first, left or right? Because you know something is going to give. Which surgically implanted boobie of Susan Lucci's will burst first, left or right? They're too big for the rest of her body, dear God they are each bigger than her head. Which of Warren Sapp's underarm perspiration stains will be bigger next week, left of right? Wouldn't it be great if he didn't lift his arms anymore? Really you have a 50 / 50 shot at getting these answers right. Let's watch as see shall we?

Heroes ...... Huh?

Did Heroes have a hard to follow start this season or is it just me? I watched the last episode last year, but I'm confused. Nikki, she's dead then? I was happy to find out that there isn't a secret clone army of Nikki's on the planet Kamino being developed, just triplettes. Nathan and Peter are Sylar's brothers, all offspring of the creepy Angela Petrelli aka Mommy Dearest? Mohinder is turning into The Fly? He can totally pull that off though. Matt has been teleported to a desert, where he meets some kind of Guru with Guru goop that he eats to see the future?
Can you tell I'm not even trying with this show. I refuse to get sucked into message boards with theories out the wazoo. It happened to me with LOST but not again. If I can't figure out what's going on just by watching every week, instead of joining message boards, playing online games, reading a damn comic book and searching for spoilers then I'm done. Done I tell you!

Ladies and Gentleman, this is Dancing With The Stars

The Star Studded Extravaganza that is Dancing With The Stars has begun. WooHoo! Although I'm at a loss as to who over half of the "Stars" are, this show still entertains the hell out of me. Max is back this season, thank you God. Tony is partnered up with the skinniest woman "Star" this year, I guess after having to hoist the beefy broad around last season it was owed to him. Ted McGinley was voted off second, he's the guy from Married With Children. I can tell him why he was voted off, here you go Ted: he was trying to appeal to Joe Six Pack, "I'm just a regular guy who sits on the recliner and drinks beer, I just wanna show these guys we can dance. " Duh.... whatever. The problem is Joe Six Pack ain't watchin'. Trust me, I'm married to one, he'd rather chew aluminum foil. In fact, when Dancing With The Stars first came on, he got up from his recliner and said, "Where's the aluminum foil?" And then he disappeared. Nice try Ted.
And then there's Cloris Leachman. Dear God voters, you know you're voting for her for all the wrong reasons. You're going to feel bad when she falls down and can't get up. She was funny the first night, but the Alzheimer's routine is going to get old fast. Just keep her around a couple more week's and then that's it and I mean it, really.

Don't Lose Me!

It’s the first day of Fall, the pool is closed and my tan has noticeable faded. All that work for an even tan for the wedding, faded away. I can get rather dark. Especially when I was running around all summer without a care in the world. Actually, back in the day when I was a kid and I went on a family beach vacation with my rather pale friends family. Her mother said to my mother, “Don’t worry if we lose them, they’ll be easy to find. I’ll just ask around if anyone has seen a little black and a little white girl walking around together.” While they all found this hysterical, all I could think was, “Lose me? Lose me amongst all the New Jersey attractions, this is funny to you? Mom? Do you really think you should send me with this woman?” Now that I think of it, with children of my own, yeah it’s funny. You need to put a little fear into them to have them stick close to you in a crowd and we did. And I’m happy to say no one lost me or my lighter shade of pale friend on the Jersey Shore.

With Golden Tickets in Hand

With every intention to post my view of the latest episode of Fringe, I instead went to the Cleveland Indians game last night. We got our hands on four Golden Tickets and I couldn't pass up an evening of free food, Cliff Lee's attempt to win game number 23 and more free food. Cliff Lee had a rough night but I on the other hand, ate until I couldn't move.
We were in row J, so it was quite a chore to keep walking up and down the steps for hotdogs, peanuts, waffle fries, nacho's and ice cream, so we developed a system. The husband and I brought my parents with us and we foraged for food in pairs. Two of us would load up our pockets and arms with said items, chow down and then the other two would go for more. The evening went well for us, not so much for Cliff Lee.

My View of Fringe

I can think of no better to way to grab an audience than to show them a plane full of people as their faces melt off, awesome. I'm calling Fringe my new kookamonga show. Why? Because Fringe has government cover-ups, fringe science, unexplained phenomena, the creepy black guy from LOST, a half dead guy with transparent skin, a mad scientist and JJ Abrams is involved. All the makings of a cult show.
The mad scientist, Dr. Walter Bishop, played by John Noble, seems to be the only doctor that can save the transparent skin guy. The problem is, he has been in a mental institute for 17 years. It's amazingly easy to spring him out and start up his basement laboratory, but hey it's TV right?
The show moved at a faster pace than, oh I don't know, LOST? Another JJ Abrams creation. Like LOST, there were symbols and clues and I suppose Easter eggs to delve into, but I refuse to get that involved.
If you missed the first episode Tuesday, it will be on again Sunday night. I plan to watch the second episode, probably the third and so on, we'll see.

Fringe, I'm Watching It Tomorrow

After conducting little or no research I've decided the new show I'm going to watch this premier season is called Fringe. It's on Fox, tomorrow at 8:00pm. So really the research I did was to see if it conflicted with any of the multitude of other shows I already watch. And it looks freaky enough to hold my interest. Freaky enough to drive the husband crazy too. Oh and it will keep me occupied while America's Got Talent is on, because Lord knows I've lost enough brain cells watching that show.
Fringe is on a Tuesday on Fox, so I'm fully prepared to be totally into the show and then have it taken off for weeks and weeks to accommodate American Idol. That's what will happen, just so you know.

An Eskimo in the White House?

Unable to retain much information from my High School years, because let's face it, I knew everything back then. I went a little further back in the memory banks to see if I could dust off some information I may have on Alaska.
Here's what I found:
- Frozen Tundra
- Eskimo's
- Igloo's
- It's really cold, but it's not the North Pole and Santa doesn't live there.

Being a radio talk show junkie I first heard the news of John McCain's Vice Presidential running mate choice on the radio. You have to paint yourself pictures while listening to the radio and I painted an Eskimo. Not an Eskimo in an igloo, a more modern one, but an Eskimo none the less.
As the news of Sarah Palin was presented to the world, I learned she is the Governor of Alaska, married with 5 kids, a beauty pageant contestant, a basketball player, hunts moose and eats them. The more I read, the more I wondered, no one really knew who Sarah Palin was until yesterday. She had a pretty sweet gig going on. Now she has brought the world into hers and her families lives and opened herself up to the biggest media anal exam there is known to man. It isn't going to be pretty. Republicans get a more thorough exam than the Democrats. It will be interesting to see how she holds up. Trust me if she lives in an igloo or has ever been in an igloo, we'll know about it. Oh and she's not an Eskimo.

Celebrities at the Wedding

I'm not apologizing for not posting lately.
A. Boy #1 got married Saturday, you can see a post on it at Farvel Cargo and
2. There's nothing on TV except the Olympics, which I keep watching anyway. I watched Ping Pong with my morning cup of coffee this morning. I'm getting tired of the Olympics. I suppose everyone else is too, that would explain the lack of comments on my last Olympic post.
There were celebrities at the wedding Aug. 16th. Silly Willy and Fluffy attended, but their true identities will remain a mystery. Not on my watch!
They are a couple of clowns that have a blog called The World of Silly Willy and Fluffy. Here you can see them having punch and cookies right after the ceremony.
The wedding was a huge success, I bought the happy couple each a toothbrush, it's all I could afford after the rehearsal dinner and buying the booze.

What's Up With the Water Polo Hats?

I spent way too much time watching Mens Water Polo on the Olympics this past weekend, it was something like 15 minutes. I've never seen Water Polo except on the Olympics and I remain clueless after all these years. Are they wearing boy hats or girl hats? Why must they tie it in a neat little bow under their chins? I couldn't look away from the hats, never saw the ball. And why in the name of all that is holy are there two teams playing and in the picture, three different color hats. Is Water Polo the equivilent of Curling in the Winter Olympics?

Problematic Panties

I've done a little research after seeing the latest Hanes Panties commercial, the Wedgie Free campaign they have going on. You may have seen it, it's new though and I can't find it on YouTube, yet. Everyday ladies in all shapes and sizes, doing everyday stuff and all of them suffering a "ride up" problem. They are shown giving a few glances around their present surroundings and then do a little butt jiggle.
Seriously, a guy can hoist his pants up to his neck, swish them around, re-arrange his boys and scratch his butt and no one gives him a second look. Have a woman sneak a little tug and we are shunned from society. I applaud Hanes for tackling the "ride up" problem. You Go Hanes!

JAWS, Through the Eyes of the Innocent

Show me the way to go home, I'm tired and I want to go to bed. I had a little drink about an hour ago and it went right to my head. I never get tired of that scene, never get tired of the movie.




Our family watches it all the time. We have JAWS on VHS, we've never updated to DVD, it's always on TV. The family, all together one Sunday, including a couple girlfriends, we were deep into "movie" conversation. JAWS of course being the classic that it is started to dominate the conversation. Boy #2's girlfriend was quiet, too quiet. She explains to us she's never seen it. The hell you say! Boy #3 and I torn apart the spare room looking for the JAWS tape, Boy #1 and the husband made fun of her and Boy #2 started wiring the VCR to the TV again.
To actually find someone that has never seen JAWS and to be able to watch it with them as they see it for the first time, well that's huge. Then add the fact that the girlfriend is packing to go on an ocean cruise with her family, that's just priceless.
She's a screamer. She was sitting in a chair and Boy #2 was sitting on the floor, she kept smacking him on the head saying, "Oh my God!" He eventually put his football helmet on.
We haven't watched the uncut version of JAWS in so long we had forgotten how much Quint was chewed up. No wonder my cousin had nightmares after she saw it at the theater when she was 12. She thought the shark was going to come out of her toilet. It's time to upgrade to DVD and have some more people over to scare.

Our Golden Tickets

It all started with free Cleveland Indians Baseball tickets, a magical, summer evening of baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet. There are tickets to baseball games out there in the world that come with free food. I know all about the loge tickets, those are not what I'm referring to.
In th
e stadium, up the escalator, the unfortunate fans that had to pay for their food, took a left, we Golden Ticket holders turned right. Glass doors were opened for us, tickets checked, paper bracelets were double sticky taped around our wrists and we were ushered into a cornucopia of stadium food. Imagine going to a baseball game hungry, wondering what to have and then realizing you can have everything. There was a hamburger and hot dog grill with french fries, a nacho stand, a pasta bar, pizza and sticking out like a sour thumb - a carved beef station, holy crap carved beef! All the snack foods were well represented, popcorn, peanuts, cotton candy and hot pretzels.
Along for the feeding frenzy ride with me were the husband, Boy #2 and Boy#3. None of us stayed in our seats very long. We would glance at each other and say, "What do you feel like eating now?" The people in the bleachers were trying to get "The Wave" started in the stadium but it stopped when it got to our section. We were just to bogged down with food to bother standing up and lifting our arms.
In the middle of all the food was a pop machine (I'm from Ohio, we call it pop not soda and I refuse to conform) the nozzles went on forever, Pepsi flavors to the left and right of me. But this proved to be the trickiest part of the evening. We should have just stood back and observed, but we jumped right in. No lines formed for this little slice of heaven, the object was to stand back and stick your arm in and fill you glass, more pop could flow this way. Eventually we caught on and didn't look like morons standing in front taking up space. Boy #2 must've drank him fifteen Dr. Peppers.
Needless to say we ate and drank our fill. There was a baseball game going on too, we watched some of that. Did I mention the ice cream parlor?

Starbucks Across From a Starbucks

When I heard in the news that Starbucks plans to close 600 of it's stores, I immediately thought of Lewis Black.



So if you are planning on visiting the end of the universe, you better hurry.

Exorcism Squads

I heard on the news today that Pope Benedict XVI has said there needs to be more exorcisms performed in the world. Well it's about damn time. I haven't seen a good exorcism since about 1973. This is good news for entertainment bloggers, there's nothing on TV in the summer.
Of course we'll need a few volunteers to film the live exorcisms and post them on YouTube. I'm a little skittish or I would do it. The news failed to tell us when the barrage of exorcisms would start, I would imagine there is some recruiting and training involved. You really don't see exorcist on many resumes. Nevertheless be on the look-out for an Exorcist Squad coming to your town this summer.

Tuesday Night Bull-Crap

You'd think I'd have more time to post with nothing on TV in the summer. Wait a minute........ I blog about television, there's nothing on television.........
You can see where I'm having the problem. Actually the husband has taken control over the remote this summer and who can blame the poor guy after last fall and my wild viewing schedule.
I wouldn't mind watching America's Got Talent, because let's face it, it's a bloggers dream. I watched the last seven minutes of it last week and realized what a hyped-up, phoney baloney, plastic banana, load of crap show it was - only seven minutes. There's the audience cheering their heads off for someone who is suppose to be unknown, yet they knew his name. We, the viewing audience are told his life story. He was left raising his brothers and sisters after his mother left them, because she was being abused by the father. I'll let that sink in a minute..........

She left her children with their abusive father, got it?

I don't even know this guys name, but he's about to make it big on America's Got Talent and guess what? Momma came home! Awesome!

It's that kind of bull-crap I'm missing every Tuesday night.

In Plain Sight

On rare occasions the husband and I find a television show that we both enjoy watching. It doesn’t happen often, but we have agreed on In Plain Sight. I think the husband likes to see where, Mary, the main character that is a US Marshal, will hide her Blackhawk holsters. One time, under a bridesmaid dress. One reason I watch is to see Raphael without his shirt. The episode last night had me questioning the Witness Protection Program and the liberties television will take. It was my understanding that when in the Witness Protection Program you were hidden, you know from the people that wanted to kill you. But this episode had a high school basketball player on his way to the Pro’s. Huh? He’d be on TV!

Jesus! Celebrity Family Feud?

I voluntarily watched Joan Rivers last night on Celebrity Family Feud. What the hell is wrong with me? Gah!!! Clearly I have too much time on my hands. Four different "families" played for charity. We will use the word family loosely, because if they needed exposure they were part of the family. Wayne Newton seems to relish in the celebrity roll since appearing on Dancing With The Stars or likes to embarrass himself. And he still has no eyelids. He and Joan Rivers are a walking billboard for "the gruesome effects of too much plastic surgery."
Ice "T", his family and his wife's boobs were on the show too. The very first question asked was, "Name something that is slippery and hard to hold on too." The answer that Ice "T" gave, had to be bleeped out. Nice. Did I mention his 16 year old son was playing? Oh and his mother-in-law?
After watching Celebrity Family Feud one has wonder if the actors going on strike might be a good thing.

Paradise By The Dashboard Light

Quite possibly the greatest album of all time, at least according to me. I've been listening to Bat Out Of Hell since I was a kid. I had the album, had the cassette and now the CD and I will buy whatever is next. Unless of course Meat Loaf continues to ruin the songs one by one with mobile phone commercials.
Boy #2 had my car over the weekend, he used up my gas and rearranged my CD's. I couldn't find my mix CD so I popped Bat Out Of Hell in the CD player, I hadn't listened to it in a while. When I heard Paradise By The Dashboard Light that stupid commercial stuck in my head, gaaah! Meat Loaf, buddy it's a classic, not meant to sell Go Phones. Sell Go Phones door to door if you have to, work at McDonalds to make a living but leave Bat Out Of Hell the classic album that it is, alone.
Paradise By The Dashboard Light is ruined for me forever, damn.

Reality TV: Okay That's Enough

Hey, I'm a Reality TV fan, really. But damn. Celebrity Circus? Please, stop the madness. I watched a whole painful hour of that show. (I missed the first half hour because Boy #2 talked me into watching the movie Crank. Not a movie for a mother and her son, plus a his girlfriend to be watching together. I'm not going to talk about it.)
Celebrity Circus, and they use the word celebrity loosely, has about six or seven "celebrities" performing circus acts and they are judged by a know-it-all, uptight, woman acrobat with some kind of accent, some guy in the middle and a gay guy. Peter Brady broke his arm in training, some other woman broke her rib and Joey Fatone, our host, asked them, "why go on?"
"So we can get a great job like you got Joey, after you were on Dancing With The Stars. Look at you all dressed up in a red coat with tails and a top hat."
Okay so they didn't say that. They stressed how they didn't quit and stuff. I can't watch this anymore. I worried about Peter Brady falling on his head and I'm a little tired of seeing Rachel Hunter on every Reality TV show that comes down the pike. And what the hell happened to Antonio Sabato, Jr.'s career that he has to be on Celebrity Circus?

Let's Move an Island, It'll Be Fun

By now if you are a LOST fan you've seen the final 2 hour episode. So you don't need me to tell you what happened. But you do need to know what I thought of it. Any LOST episode is worth the price of admission to me, if Sawyer has his shirt off. Which he did. Oh................. Baby. He jumped off the "losing fuel" helicopter to lighten the load so the rest of the passengers could get to the safety of the freighter that was about to blow up. He lost his blood splattered shirt on his swim back to the beach where he found Juliette chugging a bottle of Dharma Rum and staring at the blown up freighter. She was bummed, she's never getting off Craphole Island and she knows it.
The six that did get off the island apparently have to go back, Jack was right, according to Ben. In the flash-forwards we get to see Claire and she orders Kate not to bring Aaron back. So you can safely bet the farm that Kate will. Hurley is comfortable in the mentally challenged house playing chess with an invisible Mr. Eko, it was good to almost see him again, when Sayid creeps in after killing someone that was watching the place. Sayid tells Hurley they are leaving for somewhere safe. The safety and comfort of his tent on Craphole Island I'm sure of it. Locke is the person in the coffin and I didn't see that coming until I read the spoilers a couple days before the episode, whoa. I was sure it was going to be Michael, but he was blown up instead, after Jacks dead father told him he could go now.
Ben successfully moved the island as you can see in the picture, see that big empty ocean? Thats where the island use to be. Doh! And Ben was really pissed at Jacob the Invisible. Because Jacob the Invisible is the one that came up with the great idea to move the island. The one that moves it can't come back - Ben.

I plan on harping on this 2 hour season finale a few times over the summer, into the fall and part of the winter, until we can see the new season of LOST. Trust me there is enough blogging material from this last season to get me through the long freakin wait.

The Wheel of Fortune, Still on the Air

Holy Crap! The Wheel of Fortune is still on TV? During an early flip through the channels today (because I'm lost without my Dancing With The Stars) I stumbled upon Pat Sajak and Vanna White. Vanna is still in charge of the letters but doesn't have to turn them anymore, she just pushes a button. Pat couldn't sound any less enthused.
Question? Do the producers of the show pick dumb contestants to play so those of us at home can feel smarter? For the five minutes that I watched, I saw two guys that were a team, go bankrupt twice and ask to buy the vowel A............ twice.
Dude, it's Leprechauns hidden pot of gold. You can't see that?
Apparently in an effort to spice things up, there are teams playing against each other. Tonight was Grads and Dads, clever. The dad on the far right is going to have his hands full with his grad, the hot-headed Wheel of Fortune player that buys for A's before thinking.
During my five minutes of The Wheel of Fortune the camera's didn't zoom in on Pat or Vanna, so I can not report on how well they are holding up. But they have to be the two most boring people in the world after playing Hangman for, what? about 50 years.

Thank You Dancing With The Stars

For entertaining the hell out of me! Call me a geek if you want to but I love Dancing With The Stars and I enjoyed this season a ton! I even voted the last week and I'm convince that I'm the one who was responsible for Kristi Yamaguchi winning the Big Giant Mirror Ball Trophy. I've watched the Cha Cha Face Off on You Tube about 7 times already and decided it needs to be on my blog:



I enjoyed Dancing With The Stars more than American Idol this season. There has been rumor and speculation about Paula Abdule being interested in next season's Dancing with The Stars. Oh please, please, please let that crazy woman be on the next season. That's an entertainment bloggers dream. Is there a petition I can sign to get her on the show?

Getting to the Bottom of LOST

I’m thinking of taking my economic stimulus check, hopping on a plane to Hawaii, then rent a car and drive around the islands until I find out what the hell is going on, on my favorite show LOST.

Who’s with me? I’m going to need a head count when it comes to the car rental part of the trip. I love LOST but I can’t take it anymore. I’m the kind of person that reads the end of a book first. It doesn’t help any that Claire seems to be in on what’s going on. She’s hanging out with her dead father now. I guess that’s more fun than dragging a baby around the jungle week after week.

So when you get your economic stimulus check, let’s go stimulate the hell out of Hawaii and find some answers!

Oh and I haven’t posted on LOST because being the impatient person that I am I’ve found out some spoilers and I’m afraid to slip!

American Idol Dorks

Finally! Jason Castro is free of American Idol. He didn't want to be there anymore than Simon does. I really think he tried out as a bet with his buddies and as a fluke made it as far as he did. I heard Ryan say, "You almost look relieved that you're leaving."
Jason actually said, "Yeah a little bit. There are three songs next week, I didn't know what I was going to do."
After seeing the Ford Mustang Commercial they had to star in, I got down on my knees and thanked the Lord above for a fast-forward button. The four finalists will be haunted the rest of their lives with those embarrassing matador costumes. I can't watch these results shows anymore and expect to keep my sanity.

A Decent Set of Knockers

Only in the name of science could House deliver the line, "Where can I find a decent set of knockers?" My husband and I laughed so hard we cried. House was trying to find out if his patient was impotent. In the name of science I'm telling you. The patient ended up having an allergy to quinine but getting to the diagnosis is quite entertaining. Hey Dr. House! Just look at my previous post!

Just Leave Paula Alone

She's an American Idol treasure for God's sake. And she can tell the future. What would the American Idol wanna-be's do without her infinite wisdom? Go right from Randy's "check it out dawg it was a little pitchy for me" to Simon telling them they sounded like cruise ship entertainment and they are utterly boring and forgettable? Paula is their "take a deep breath" babble buffer. A lull between two storms. A voice of non-sensical, un-constructed criticism. And she tells them they look good.
I've read the blogs. There are those who think enough is enough, Paula should leave the show. The hell you say! She's damn good, live television entertainment!

Explaining LOST

If you are a avid watcher of LOST have you ever tried to explain a scene to anyone that isn't? Last episode the husband decided to stay up instead of going to bed when LOST came on. He's under strict instructions to be quiet until commercials. During the episode when Sawyer found Aaron alone in the jungle crying I knew there was no way I could explain this to him to have it make any sense. But it went a little something like this:

That man in the middle of the night, deep in the jungle, that Claire saw holding her baby, Aaron, is indeed her dad. Only he's suppose to be dead, that's why Jack was in Australia, to bring back his body. Oh, Jack and Claire are brother and sister by the same dead guy, but they don't know they are related. This dead guy keeps showing up on craphole island, Jack found his coffin, conveniently empty.
So Claire followed the dead guy that was holding her baby and disappeared. Aaron, who Claire has been holding since she had him, is alone crying in the jungle. So where the hell is Claire? Walking around the jungle with a dead guy?

You see where I'm coming from? Claire has already gone missing, we've been there and done that. We know something happens to Claire and she doesn't make it off the island and Aaron does. I can't think of anything more annoying as to why if the explanation is that she just disappeared.

Survivor Blindsiding

It's awesome to watch these people get voted off not having a clue that they are about to be blind sided. Three blind sides in a row, Ozzy, Jason and then Alexis. Natalie is becoming quite the Survivor Bitch and it seems to be a role she's very comfortable in. She just might have a place in the top 5 bitches of Survivor secure. She wants to floss her teeth with Jason's jugular. Yikes!
James injured a finger, it got infected and medical took him out of the game. He's one of my favorite survivors. He walked into Tribal council and sat in the jury box hooked up to an IV. Another Survivor first. I'm going to miss him.
I'm enjoying this season. To keep my view of the television shows I watch my own, I've been avoiding the site Television Without Pity. One of my favorite sites and I will be catching up over there during the summer. There are some good writers on that site.

Bra Storage Room

Am I so out of touch with the rest of the women in the world that I didn’t know we are suppose to use our bra’s for storage room? I recently viewed a bra commercial that showed women taking everything from money to their cell phones out of their bra. I thought that was what pockets in your BDU pants were for or your purse. If I put a cell phone in my bra it would fall out. I really don’t have much to keep it secure in there.

Nailed at 9

It's a Home Improvement Show. But I caught your attention didn't I? I guess that's Nailed at 9's master plan too. The husband watches the DIY channel and they just advertised this new show. Holy Crap! It sounds like an Adult Film. How do you talk about that show around the water cooler?

Dancing With The Stars Rootin Tootin Extravaganza

There is really no way to discuss the group dance without sounding mean. But I don't want to watch a pair of big beefy thighs hanging out of a short denim skirt. It was a bit unsettling when poor Tony hoisted Marissa up in the air. There was no way she would come back down gracefully. And Tony is going to break something if he keeps doing that.
There have been no surprises thus far for this season of Dancing With The Stars. Perhaps the Stars have learned that you really have to work the viewing audience and go for the sympathy votes. We learned that Kristi Yamaguchi was born with a club-foot, Marlee Matlin got a pep-talk from The Fonz, Mario talked to his little brother on the phone and says he misses him, what are they trying to do, turn Dancing With The Stars into a telethon?
We say good-bye to Marlee Matlin this week. Maybe Henry Winkler should have worn his leather jacket and said, "Aye! Vote for Marlee."

Did You See Ozzie's Face?

Now that I only have one outside the house job, I should be able to regularly tear apart the contestants on Survivor. Did you see his face? Awesome. Ozzie really thought he was coasting through the game didn't he? I watched the episode at 11:00 pm, Thursday night and laughed my ass off. And Eliza's reaction on the jury? Priceless. I don't know what Ozzie is more upset about, being totally blind sided or having to spend the next couple of weeks with Eliza.
Here is a link to Survivor's website they're calling Life on the Survivor Ponderosa or something like that. Actually there are 5 videos and I watched them all, because I have that kind of time now. Before everyone of the 5 videos is the same Pantene commercial, I use to like that song of there's.
I'm still hoping James the Gravedigger will win, but he's seriously outnumbered. He's fun to watch. Cirie is playing a good game, I wouldn't mind seeing her win. I can't think of anyone else left that I would want to see win.

American Freakin' Idol with no Michael Johns

I know it's hard to believe but I fell a sleep during American Idol's results show Wednesday. It's so jamb packed with riveting entertainment. I'll never get over missing the online questions from the massive viewing audience. A new feature this year that has me on the edge of my seat every week wondering, "Oh my God I wonder which question Ryan will pick? What juicy bits of information are we going to learn from these deer in the headlights, worried to say the wrong thing contestants?"
Kristi Lee Cook is finally gone, one week late as far as I'm concerned because damn it, Michael Johns should still be there. I'm not over his premature departure yet, either is my mom.

Reno 911

While waiting for the TV shows to start back up again, since the writer’s strike ended, I’ve been keeping busy watching Reality TV, Lingo and my kids have me watching Reno 911. Yikes! Have you seen that guy in the short shorts? Something tells me I’m not going to find a pair of those on the BDU pants page of the LA Police Gear website.

Dancing With The Stars Says Goodbye to Adam Carolla

Dancing With The Stars Review:
I'll miss Adam Carolla, to bad he couldn't dance because he was entertaining as hell. But along with his awful dancing I think he offended one to many special interest groups. I'm sure the judges are happy he's gone, he made them uncomfortable because he talked back to them. Another celeb dancer that makes the judges uncomfortable or just down-right scared of her is Priscilla Presley. Her surgically altered stare has them shaking in their dancing shoes. It's to late for poor Len, Bruno and Carrie Ann, but a word of advice for the rest of us. Try to avoid looking directly into her eyes and perhaps we can avoid another final three catastrophe.

American Freakin' Idol

Mom and I are pissed. Look at him how cute he is! Where is the justice in this world when a cutey patutey like Michael Johns is voted off American Idol? He has a good voice too. It isn't like Mom and I just want him to win because of his looks. I don't want to talk about it anymore.
I missed the results show because I had to work and because I hate results shows. But I hear Ryan was a real jerk and Paula was upset with him. I heard it on the radio, Ryan deflated Michaels dreams, gave him a glimmer of hope then crushed him again. Real nice Ryan Seacrest.

I Have a Reason for an Entire Week of no New Posts!

I've never gone a whole week without posting. All can be explained in my other blog Farvel Cargo. Let's have a quick review, shall we?

Dancing With The Stars: Goot was banished and I think Dancing With The Stars will be a better place without his dorky facial expressions. Sorry but that's just me or maybe not. I was distracted by his mouth always open, I don't even know if he could dance well.

American Idol: Ramyalladalla, (the really short one) was dismissed and she cried her eyes out with Kristi Lee Cook, yeah Kristi was yet again in the bottom two. She will be lucky to come out of this competition with only an ulcer.

Survivor: James continues to entertain the hell out of me. He opened a beer bottle with his teeth and tried to coach Jason on the finer ways of beer bottle opening. But Jason was in serious jeopardy of immediate dental care, so James, claiming it's all leverage, opened the beer bottle for him. Ami the conniver was voted out and was asked to leave immediately.

That's it in a nutshell. Bare with me as I try to adjust to my new schedule. I ended up with two jobs, how I'm still not sure, but one will be done in two weeks.

My Beloved Cleveland Indians Have Started Regular Season

Occasionally I will post about my Cleveland Indians. I'm not going to talk about their ugly "throwback" uniforms today, since it's opening day I should remain positive. A big plus is that the weather cooperated this year. Last year's opening day was in the midst of a blizzard.
So be prepared all you Yankee, White Sox and Red Sox fans. This is Cleveland's year!
Thank God the game is on early today so I don't miss Dancing With The Stars!

Results Shows

Dancing With The Stars Review:
Well, not a review. You have to pay me the big bucks to sit through either Dancing With The Stars or American Idol's results shows. Big bucks baby. I don't have that kind of time to waste.
I missed the entire two hours of Dancing With The Stars Tuesday night, but did I call it or what? Penn Jillette is done and so is Monica Seles.

American Idol Review:
But not really a review. Again, I have things to do. But I did have it on and sat down from time to time. Unfortunately I caught the new part of the show where Ryan and his computer pull up questions from the internet. Ryan randomly picks a painful amount of questions for either the contestants or judges, who bumble through the stupid answers. I can not think of one question I would want to ask anyone on that show, that I thought I would get an honest answer to.
Last night Paula was gloveless and Syesha, Chikezie and dread-lock Jason were in the bottom three. I was surprised that Kristi Lee Cook dodged the bottom three bullet and so was she. In the end poor Chikezie got the ax, I thought he was doing so well. I guess it does all come down to song choice. Right?

Paula's Bejeweled, Black, Hooker Gloves

American Idol, Season 7 Review:
I hope that everyone noticed Paula's bejeweled, black, hooker gloves last night. She waved them around all night and stuck them out like Frankenstein to make sure we saw them. Ryan, Randy and Simon never mentioned them and I think that hurt her feelings. So let's all give Paula a round of applause for her hooker gloves and for managing to stay upright most of the evening.
Randy didn't seem to be happy with most of the dreaded song choices, Paula disagreed with him and then tried to form thoughts on her own and Simon agreed with Randy, imagine that.
The top three performances, according to our beloved judges, were Michael Johns, David Cook and Syesha Mercado and I agree. Oh and they were quite impressed by Kristi Lee Cook, but the rest of them fell into the poor song choice category.

Dancing With The Stars

Dancing With The Stars Review:
I saw The Fonz in the audience! Jimmy Kimmel was there too. Tonight after about 2 hours of stuff we have already seen we will find out which of the 12 couples have danced their last dance together. Two couples will go home this week. Monica Seles should go, she really sucks at dancing, stick with tennis Monica. There are two guys that should go but I will miss them terribly, because they are wildly entertaining, Penn Jillette and Adam Carolla. One person that can't wait to get rid of them, I'm sure, is one of the judges, Bruno. Jillette and Carolla will not take any crap from the judges and give it right back to them, especially Bruno.
I failed to mention last week how incredibly disappointed I am that Maks is not one of the Pro's this season, he's my favorite. And he takes his shirt off, a lot. Damn.
Kristi Yamaguchi <---- I took the time to look up the correct spelling, she was awesome. The football player Jason Taylor was too. The rest of the dances were middle of the road, I wouldn't be upset if Steve Guttenberg got voted out though or if he would just try to keep his mouth closed for most of his dance, that would work for me too.

Keep On Singing and Dancing

In a previous post I mentioned a Brady Bunch performance and then the next day I caught the end of The Brady Bunch movie right at this scene:


This is the sing and dance performance I was thinking of when I wrote my American Idol review. Can you see the similarities?
The reason I posted this video? I'm in a goofy mood and don't feel like working, is one answer. But the main reason is to see if I can get this song stuck in your head for the rest of the day. I don't want to be the only one seeking therapy today.
Have a great day and remember the Dancing With The Stars extravaganza is on for 2 hours tonight, all 12 dancers are to perform and for some reason Dancing With The Stars finds it necessary to have a 2 hour re-cap and elimination show on tomorrow night, that promises to bore the snot out of you.

LOST Episode 8: Meet Kevin Johnson

LOST Season 4, Episode 8 Review:
Uhhhhh..... okay this episode was mostly flashback. Of Michael aka Kevin Johnson, Ben's "man on the boat". Sayid confronts Michael and says, "How did you come to be on this boat?" And we went to one long flashback. Michael is trying to kill himself, because he's wracked with guilt, oh and a murderer. He drives his car into a wall and survives, wakes up in a hospital, hears a nurses voice and sees Libby talking to him while holding blankets in front of her. That was pretty creepy. Since he's already killed her.
Michael buys a gun at a pawn shop, goes to a back alley to shoot himself in the head and Tom/before he was dead Tom, shows up, you know in Manhattan and I'm sure there is a perfectly reasonable explanation why he's not on the island, really. But he tells Michael the Island won't let him die, well of course it won't, duh! Tom wants Michael to redeem himself and save the island from the freighter 18 miles off shore. Michael agrees to this after his fully loaded gun misfires twice while trying to shoot himself in the head. Michael goes to Tom's penthouse room and we find out that Tom is a big ole gay guy. Tom tells his gay lover to take a walk and gives Michael his new passport, "Meet Kevin Johnson."
So we come back to Sayid and Desmond questioning Michael and Sayid drags Michael to the captain and tells the captain everything. Now at this point I'm just going to see where this goes. I don't know if I should yell at Sayid or applaud him. Because I have no idea who the good guys are.
Speaking of Ben, he tells the Locke followers that as soon as the freighter people capture him they will kill everyone on the island. When alone with Alex, Karl and Danielle, Ben tells them they have to leave, get far away from here and here is a map. It's to the temple where the rest of "our people" are. Off they go to the Temple, they stop for a two minute rest. Alex and Karl sit to have a drink of water, they hear gunshots, Karl sees a hole in his water bottle then Alex sees a hole in Karl, he's fall over dead. Alex freaks out and Danielle grabs her, "We have to run, I love you Alexandra." she says. They run and Danielle gets shot. Alex is sitting there scared to death raises her hands and says, "I'm Ben's daughter, don't shoot." That's how it ends. I'm thinking Ben set them up to get rid of Karl and Danielle, but who knows. And we have to wait a month to find out. It's very tiring being a LOST fan, isn't it?

Viral Film Festival

Trying to spark some interest in school, Boy #3 and I visited the local vocational school for their open house. We were able to pick three classes to visit. Boy #3 picked the three he was interested in. The first two were total geek classes and I had no idea what the teacher was talking about or if they were even speaking English. The third class was a “let’s check it out” last minute choice. It was called Video Technology. The minute we walked into the class could see a noticeable change in Boy #3. He actually looked excited about school, it brought tears to my eyes.

Viral Film Festival is something for him to aspire to. The mission of the festival is to showcase the best national and international short films in narrative, animation, documentary and experimental categories. When the eyes light up in your kids it’s time for encouragement. They are going to be working the rest of their lives, they should be doing something they love.

American Idol's Top 10

American Idol Review:
So I thought it was the top 12 that went on tour..... my bad.
The show opened with the remaining 11 Rock Star wanna-be's singing a medley of The Beatles songs. It kind of reminded me of The Brady Bunch musical performances. Really makes me mad at myself for watching it again, I know I said I wouldn't. The husband worked late and I had total control over the TV, I couldn't help myself. I watched the agonizing, torture they put these people through.
The bottom three this week were Kristi again, Amanda the rocker chic that can't wait to sell out a bar and Carly. Everyone is surprised by Carly, I'm not. They panned the audience when Carly was singing Tuesday and pointed out her husband. He's a walking tattoo. She has a bunch too. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but your asking voters who made Taylor Hicks an American Idol, to vote for a tattooed rocker. I don't see it happening. Amanda the aspiring bar singing was voted out. I'm surprised because she's the one that the site I posted about picked her to vote for thinking she is the worst and trying to screw with the system. Kristi Lee Cook gets to sing again. *roll eyes here*

Survivor Micronesia: Episode 7

Survivor, Micronesia Review:
Kathy. We knew she was unstable. She is supposed to be an uber fan. Does she even watch the show? She quit last night. She wigged out, crying and hugging everyone. Whining, "I can't feel my family." Huh? Jeff came to have a sit down with her and then whisked her away on a boat, so she could quit.
I wish they would merge already because I still can't remember their tribe names. There is a purple and orange team, the purple team won the Reward Challenge. They got to take a shower. So we had some blurred out body parts this episode and a commentary by Cirie - priceless, I'm starting to like her again.
The orange team again won the Immunity Challenge, sending Ozzie and crew to Tribal Council. There was quite a bit of back stabbing talk going on but in the end Tracy and her cock-eyed left nipple went home.

Be Oyster Aware

I was watching the NCIS marathon last weekend and one of the characters called in sick, well she was kidnapped and made to call in sick, but anyway she made up a story about food poisoning and said she should have listened to the saying only eat raw oysters in months with the letter “R” in them. I’ve never heard that before. Maybe it’s because I don’t generally eat raw food unless it’s a fruit or vegetable. If you eat raw food, probably it’s a good idea to check sites like BeOysterAware.com. You can find all the information you need on oysters and some recipes. I’m posting a picture of what a gulf oyster looks like. My Aunt and Uncle brought me a bag of these shells once when I was heavily into the craft show scene. I was able to drill a hole in one end of the shell, I don’t know which end is considered the top, and I made Christmas ornaments out of them. Can’t you see a Santa face when you look at an gulf oysters shell?
So the husband and I have started watching NCIS but don’t know what’s going on with the characters. This kidnapped, oyster hating, Kate was killed somehow and we don’t know why or how. Just what I need another television show to get into.

Dancing With The Stars, The Ladies Turn

Dancing With The Stars Review:
Yep, the ladies were better than the guys or maybe they look better, except for Monica Seles, because the professional guys have to lead. Kristi Yamawhatshername got a score of 27 already. Mom and I have deep discussions on Dancing With The Stars and Idol. Mom says, "You know that Kristi had ballet lessons and is use to performing, she's very graceful."
"You think she has an unfair advantage?"
Is the the Dancing With The Stars community in a tizzy over Kristi and her background? Hmmmm.... I kind of wanted her to win.
Priscilla Presley and her face scream plastic surgery. I can't see her cha cha - ing around the dance floor, I'm scared something will jar loose.
There is another woman "star" I don't know who she is but she's under five foot and almost as wide, I had to get the weight thing out and I won't refer to her wideness anymore, but she was annoying beyond belief. Nobody is that full of energy and jolly, oops did I do it again? I can tell Tony, her pro partner, wanted to slap her, I would have if I were in close proximity to her.
I love this show it entertains the hell out of me.

Fast-Forward Through American Idol

American Idol Review:
I thought we were promised the strongest and bestest contestants ever, that's what Ryan and Paula keep telling us. When do they plan to show up consistently? When are they going to make the right "song choices"? When are they going to stop singing The Beatles songs?
Yeah, none of them sounded very good last night, a little pitchy. Except for the kid, David Archuleta. I should have watched Dancing With The Stars instead. Simon didn't like anyone, Paula babbled and Randy - "Gee, I don't know, it didn't work for me, I didn't get. What do you think Paula?"
"Babble, babble, you look great tonight, babble, babble."
The plus side of the evening was I had this episode recorded and used the fast-forward button like a cheap French whore.

Dancing With The Stars Season Opening

Dancing With The Stars Review:
Awesome, the show last night started off entertaining the hell out of me. All the professionals danced together, the lighting was great, the band sounded terrific, the crowd was pumped, it was just an energy filled extravaganza! Loved the beginning. When the stars started to dance the show slowed down some. It was their first dance and everyone was stiff. I was looking forward to seeing how Penn Jillette and Adam Carolla would do, they ended up in last place. I'm thinking after seeing these guys dance and not even seeing the women dance yet, that this time we will probably have a woman take home the trophy this season. I'm just saying.

Here is the beginning dance performed by the Pro's!

LOST Episode 7: Ji Yeon

LOST Episode 7, Season 4 Review:
Holy Crap, Michael is Ben's man on the boat. Not that I'm surprised, but what the hell's going on? Sayid and Desmond play it cool and don't blow his cover.
Juliette successfully gets Sun off the pregnant woman killing island, because we see Sun giving birth in a flash forward. She is referred to as one of the Oceanic Six. During Suns flash forward we see her in labor and calling out for Jin. In separate scenes we see Jin buying a stuffed panda bear and frantically trying to get to the hospital. But Jin was having a flashback, he bought the stuffed panda bear for a business associate of Mr. Paik's. Hurley shows up in Suns flash forward and he and Sun take the baby to Jins grave site. Damnit. They almost had me crying. Jin's dead, don't know why, don't know how.
On the island, Sun wants to go to the Locke camp. Juliette tells her she has to get off the island within 3 weeks or she will be dead. Sun doesn't trust her, she and Jin get a map from Kate. Juliette is really adamant that they stay and tells Jin that Sun had an affair. Uh oh! Jin understands more English than he can speak and clearly knows the word affair and who's the baby's daddy.
Jin goes fishing with Bernard. What else would you do when you're stranded on an island and you find out your wife has been unfaithful? Bernard rambles on about marriage and love and yada, yada and ends up talking sense into Jin. Realize what a dick he was when he and Sun were married, so he forgives her and she assures him he's her baby's daddy.
So if we are counting Aaron as one of the Oceanic Six, then we got all six of them accounted for. Jin's dead, Claire has to be dead and some of them are still on the island, don't ya think?

Survivor Micronesia: Episode 6

Survivor Micronesia: Episode 6, I think Review:
Maybe I'm just getting tired of Reality TV or I'm in a mood this week, wait what's the date? The 14th, yep, I'm in a mood. But last night Jonathan had to leave the show because of a raging infection from his knee injury. He cried like a baby. Kathy was sobbing. "We need you. We need you."
Can we get on to the Immunity Challenge please?
Since we have the Fans and the Favs mixed up I will be referring to them by the Purple team and the Orange team this week because I'm in a mood. Chet's team lost, Chet's team always looses, Chet's is a hindrance of great magnitude. Chet's team finally voted him out. Chet just about begged them to vote him out.
Here is the video of the Tribal Council Vote.
It's pretty boring, you can see who everyone voted for and what they said. Some of them draw pictures and you have to watch that too, but once in awhile I like to see who voted for who. I trying to figure out why some of them voted for Eric, his so called alliance I mean. I would vote for Eric, he's whiney and annoying. But Tracy did. And while I have Tracy brought up is it just me or is her left nipple way off to the side to much? I just stared at her nipples the whole time she was on the screen thinking, "That left one ain't right."
Oh and Jason went to Exile Island and found the fake Immunity Idol and he's so stoked thinking he has the real one. Chet went with him but just layed on the beach like a washed up dead fish.

LOST, Give Me Answers

I can’t post my LOST review until I watch it again, what the hell is going on? We get an answer in each episode and 67 more questions. I want more answers. I’ve been asked if I could find something in an oyster besides a pearl, what would that be? Answers to questions on LOST, that’s what I want. Like a fortune cookie. Why is Jin dead? Why is Michael on the freighter 18 miles off shore?

I’ve never had Gulf oysters before, but I would eat as many as I could for answers. I would prefer them cooked though. I just can’t do the raw thing. While they provide a low calorie protein that are a great source of zinc, vitamin B-12, and omega-3 fatty acids you have to be careful eating raw stuff. Did you know that if you have liver disease, diabetes or a weak immune system, you should avoid raw oysters. I found this out at a site called BeOysterAware.com when searching for information on diabetes. The husband has been recently diagnosed with diabetes. There is a lot of information on oysters and recipes. They have answers for you there! Which is more than I can say for LOST.

American Idol Eliminates the Stripper

American Idol Dragged Out Elimination Review:
This is the first elimination show that I've seen this season. American Idol three nights a week is more than I'm capable of, I can't do it. Checking online to see who was eliminated was good enough for me. This was probably the last elimination show I'm going to see this season. Because to be honest, I can't spare the brain cells. If I continue to watch these torturous elimination productions by the end of the season I'll need therapy. As I write this I have Kristy Lee Cooks country version of "Eight Days a Week" depleting my brain cell functions. Ferociously worming its way deeper into my brain, banging back and forth against my precious cells and rendering them useless.
Dear God they make the bottom three losers sing there song again. The bottom three were Syesha, Country Kristy and David Hernandez. David was the ultimate loser, which is good because there are a bunch of David's in the competition, we should get rid of one or two just to keep it simple. American Idol is dumbing their audience down and we can't be expected to keep track of three contestants with the same name. Kristy Lee Cook will remain in the competition at least one more week to country up another legendary song.

She's a Little Bit Country

American Idol Top 12 Review:
"It started off a little pitchy, but dude you worked it out." For God sakes Randy, again with the pitchy.
Paula disagreed with Randy twice! And Simon liked more than two performances last night.
It was songs from the Beatles night. Oh boy. So Kristy Lee Cook took the judges literally last week when they told her she should focus on county songs. She sang "8 Day a Week" in a country arrangement. Dear God it was awful. Painful to listen to. I still wince when I think of it. Simon called it a mess.
Simon also called the judges beloved David Archuleta a mess. Whoa! He really did a ghastly job trying to sing "We Can Work it Out". Simon expands my vocabulary. David A. forgot some of the lyrics. Yikes.
The judges and I thought that Brooke, Chikezie, Carly and David C. did well. In the middle of the pack were Michael and Jason. The ones I didn't mention didn't do well. Kristy should go tonight, IMO.
