|"Position the habitat of your hamster somewhere light and airy,
away from drafts, heaters, direct sunlight and other pets.
Never put it on or near a television, radio or hi-fi or a fridge."
This site isn't about who should win, who will win, who I'd be friends with, or who is cute. It's about watching hamsters: which ones are doing what and why. Which are fun and which are dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! More to come, bookmark & come back! .. that dingo
8/24/04 - Day 54 >> to the future >> dwell in the past >> latest
Cowboy isn't dissuaded from his acting dream by Marvin's triumph yesterday, as he soliloquizes over today's HamsterWatch star of the day:
"This was my friend Lobster, I knew him well"
It's a typical afternoon in the habitat - bodies everywhere
Karen tries to figure out the show air schedule and Nik blows a big one
(no gag reflex, remember?)
Diane seeks love advice from Karen, who has a surprise non-photogenic moment
but recovers quickly
Diane: I'm just not sure what's up with that Vanessa chick..
Karen: She's just a hot chick he picked up at spring break, that's my impression
Diane: I tell him how I feel, he tells me how he feels - he can't say it, but he can draw it - so I said 'What are we? If we were outside here would I call you my boyfriend?'.. we want to get the same flight back.. then hopefully move out to LA together
Karen: It scares me that Drew is so convertible
Diane: I told him 'If it's you and the twins at the end, do you think they're gonna vote to keep you???'
Karen: Blood's thicker than water
Diane: That's my favorite saying.. I gave my sister my blood once for Christmas..
Nik: That's cool!
Diane: ..cuz she was treating me like water
Karen: Have you noticed all of a sudden Pretty Boy became My Man Drew to Marvin? It's his right to vote however he wants, obviously
Diane: He's gonna vote the way I want him to, trust me
the lobster tails they got from Amazon.com (you can too!)
Of course Chef Marv includes all the fixings, and he explains to them what's in
all the various pots.. they all eat together, more or less like a happy family
No false modesty here: Marv enjoys his meal as much as anyone..
the gourmet cuisine is topped off by the evening booze delivery, yay!
They all love the fabulous meal and everyone cleans their plates like good kids
Karen and Ad/Nat tackle the huge clean-up - Diane escapes outside to pick scabs
Once the work's done Cowboy comes in to play Notice Anything Different..
with a routine Scott did weeks earlier (and much better)
Cowboy gets no takers among the clean-up crew
so he takes his act outside and gets the same reaction..
He tries it on Drew - two ways - but Drew doesn't notice much of anything lately
Diane turns the convo around to Holly once again - they're all sure now she's a twin
Nik: Sitting by her (in the pre-show selection process) I wanted to vomit! I was just hoping she wouldn't speak..
(because of her appearance Nik? hmmm..)
Karen: Sometimes the gap between her teeth was there, and sometimes it wasn't
Diane: I know! And one of them was cool.. I liked that one
They sip the evening away with a marathon trivia game..
having come up with Atreyu and Artak, they're still obsessed with the
girl's name in The Neverending Story (but you can find out!)
Marv kicks butt in most categories, but shockingly
admits he's never seen E.T. or the original Star Wars
It's a nice evening sipping around the fire - even the twins join the group again
(look in the background: Drew's playing catch with himself.. what's up with that?)
Marvin's still entertaining Karen & Diane from his bed in his trailer
with stories and Young & Restless and Sopranos trivia
"It's cool with central air".. (what is the name of that Italian meat anyway?)
(after half an hour or so of slurpy kisses and moving covers):
Drew: You know how to get me going
Drew: It's all good.. and what about mama?
Diane: You know what I love?
Drew: My receding hairline?
Diane (back to game game game): Me and you to the end
Drew: (mumbles something)
Diane: What? It sounded like you said hogtie
(keep dreaming, Diane)
Another day, another bug on a string
Marvin had Diary Room personnel checking the average lifespan of a dragonfly.. said he wanted to "find out if we killed him with a rope around his thorax, or if this was his last day on earth anyway"
Unfortunately I missed the entire Savage Junior adventure today..
Considering the outcome, I think I'm glad.. I'd hate to have become attached to him, knowing what I know now.. rest in peace, little guy.
(yesterday's part 2 is mostly posted - and it isn't pretty - thanks for your patience)
