|"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
8/25/04 - Day 55 >> to the future >> dwell in the past >> latest
Love lies bleeding
It's that kind of day
Maybe I missed the good stuff, but I have a feeling there wasn't much..
Still, we have to find our fun where we can
The nominees pack - always a sad time - but at least they have their special personalized Big Brother 5 bags to ease the pain.. Adria helps Natalie decide how they'll split up the wardrobe and they wonder where it all went wrong..
They worry how they'll maintain the Twin Power onslaught once separated.. Natalie worries her nails down to the nubs.. then they go worry Cowboy some more
In the storage room Marvin hurriedly assures Cowboy that "Diane can control Drew".. and Cowboy leaves a bit of himself behind (huh??)
Outside, Karen cracks up with her 19th nervous breakdown and laments to the twins
Karen: I don't know where I sit..
I know I owe you a decision and I can't give you that..
I don't even know my sister, but if she walked through that door tomorrow, everybody would be an acquaintance
Twins continue their Prevent Cowboy From Campaigning campaign, this time feigning interest in his show biz dreams..
Twin: So Cowboy, you still gonna write that sitcom?
Cowboy: I am always writing it, in my head.. but I shouldn't talk about it, somebody might steal my One Night Stand idea.. but what I really want to do is act
Twin: You could be like Quentin Tarantino
Twin: You know - Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction - Quentin Tarantino acts, directs, and writes all that
Cowboy: She does?
Twin: So does Drew Barrymore, she produced Charlie's Angels
Cowboy: No way!
Twin: Drew's always changing, she keeps doing new stuff
Cowboy: I'm like that too.. I change my look a lot too
The day drags on.. all packed, Cowboy goes down for a nap to dream of stardom..
Twins cycle through a few more diss/plot/scheme/pray rotations.. Nik goes bowling
Suddenly, Marvin jumps into Karen's nap-cocoon, surprising her
Marv: So is this how y'all cuddle? You spoon?
Diane: Nah, that's old-school cuddling
Marv: What do you do now??
Diane (spins around): We get in each other's faces!!
Marv (hops up): Uh oh.. nothing going on here, Drew! She was just giving me a haircut.. yea that's it, a pubic haircut!
Later Nik sits down to play cards.. perhaps assessing the state of her game strategy?
(symbolically speaking, of course)
She starts with basic solitaire - the solo/individual routine has worked ok for her in life, but somehow she lost sight of that in here, having seized the first-time opportunity for her to get in with the girly-girl types..
Then she tries a tarot layout, hoping the cards will tell her what to do..
Finally she realizes it's all just a big mess now, so might as well play a random game
Karen and Marvin compare notes and agree that Cowboy and both twins have to go
Another lockdown ends and they go out to find tomorrow's pricey HOH apparatus
It's a ski ramp!! Wait.. it's golf.. (the new camera's point-of-view is a bit iffy)
Drew says "Wow, where'd they get these balls at? They're all white!"
They read the rules and practice putt-putt like good hamsters..
Unable to compete, Nik wanders off in search of booze
Action sequence! Drew & Cowboy set up the pool volleyball set on pillows and
chairs (you can too!).. but it isn't as sturdy on land as regulation equipment
Funeral for a friend
Marv: Karen, did you hate Savage Junior so much you wanted him dead?
Marv: Look him in the eye! Was he alive the last time you saw him?
Karen: YES! He was breathing!!
Marv: The murderer has been found! Have her bound, shackled, drawn, quartered, tied to the stake!
Cowboy: Yes, he will be missed
Drew: He looks so good there
Marv: He just wasn't cut out for Big Brother
Cowboy: Only the strongest..
Marv: Did y'all contact his family?
Marv: Let them know they can fly in safely.. they won't be trapped
(which means the rest of the services and the burial will be an on-air exclusive.. "unlimited access 24/7" my ass!)
