<< woozy? - back to part 1

Shenanigans galore, continued

Somehow Diane ends up with a big sharp knife in her hands - not a good sign!

She and Nakomis have a drink-off.. Diane gives up midway through her glass..
but Nik has already finished! Predictably, Diane shouts "You bitch!!" and catches up

Diane and Nik are drunkest, but somehow manage to serve up a nice meal
anyway, thanks to their competitive spirits and drinkers' pride:
"I'm so drunk! I can cook when I'm drunk!" "I'm drunker! I can cook when I'm drunk!"

Adria's history, and Cowboy's not too comfortable around this display, so he
makes himself scarce.. Karen isn't drinking, but trooper that she is, she hangs
with the lushes - even sweeping them out of the kitchen to clean up - what a pal!
Diane's not feeling so well.. she heads toward the bathroom (and runs into the wall)

Diane enjoyed the attention from last week's field sobriety test so much that she requests another from Marvin (who's also a bit tipsy).. she fails as badly as before


Marv: Like this - 1,3,4,2,1.. 1,3,4,2,1..
Marv: Nope.. try it again.. 1,3,4,2,1
Marv: Nope.. try it again.. 1,3,4,2,1
Marv: Nope.. you fail.. again

Nik attacks Diane in the hall - her tummy hurts from laughing so much -
but she goes in for another charge

Diane isn't feeling well (again) so Nik takes down Drew.. Diane recovers and cheers

Now Diane's fallen and can't get up - Cowboy to the rescue! He gets his rescue hug!
Drew steps in and gives Diane a couple back-door pumps.. she likes it!

Drew and Nik go another round - he politely asks first "Is it ok if I put you on your back?" - but when they start knocking things off shelves, we hear Diane from the bathroom "What's going on? Drew? Big Brother's gonna tell you to stop pretty soon!"



Oh no, they aren't done yet

Nik piles into bed with Drew & Diane, coaching them to grab each other's "hoo-hoo's"
and pinching both of them, encouraging them to hurt each other "some people like
that" (true Nik, but get your terminology straight..) Nik spanks Diane and sticks around while Drew follows her lead, and is still on the bed while Drew grabs Diane's "hoo-hoo"

Earlier Drew had told Karen he was afraid to sleep with Diane tonight - Karen wisely counselled him to "just pet her quietly til she passes out".. (maybe he thought she said "cover her face til she stops breathing").. Not surprisingly, Diane says she's going to be sick.. Karen says hi on her way from the bathroom, and Diane grabs some "hoo-hoo"

Drew does some grabbing too

Still threatening to be sick, Diane falls out of bed, falls on the floor, and climbs onto
Nik & Karen before stumbling off to the bathroom, returning in just her undies

She pesters Drew before changing bras, and then stuff starts flying across the room

Pillows, stuffed animals, boxing gloves, shoes.. it all flew back and forth between
Diane and Nik.. Drew just kept mumbling he wished they'd all go to sleep
They finally settled down - Diane & Drew in their usual formation - and believe it or not, Diane started whispering game to him!! He shut her up finally with some sloppy smooching, but made her turn away so he could sleep without her "bothering him"

P.S. At one point during all this a door slammed and a shadow passed.. Diane shouted "Who the fuck was that?!" Someone whispered that it was Adria.. to which Diane responded - loudly - "Oh, that bitch! At least the other one's gone!"

Finally no more having to keep track of which is which! No more listening to their hate spewing forth or their warped justification system! But it was a good twist when it was just on paper - and not easy to pull off - so I'll let her get a fresh start from neutral tomorrow.. let's hope she stops crying by then.

Still with us, but nobody's celebrating. Here's hoping we don't have any more creepy shower incidents this week.

A wealth of quotables and snappables once again today! One of her Diary Rooms revealed that she blames the house and the game for her changing her mind every ten minutes (no Diane, it's you.) She told around the fire about her dad & uncles burying cats up to their necks, running over them with lawnmowers, other fun & games like that (yikes!) Later in her drunky room-spin phase said her mom used to agree with Nik about more booze curing a hangover.. I'm telling you, there's something up with her background that would explain a lot about how she is.

CBS finally picked up the ball with this dud, showing him as the mumbling doof we know he is. Lately he's either sleeping or silent or drunk - his teen fans who think he's so dreeeeeeeeeamy might not like him so much as a paunchy, gloomy alcoholic. He said during a convo about cameras everywhere and infrared nights 'You don't know if the covers are moving or not'.. wrong bub, we know.

The house chameleon keeps doing her thing, which includes vacuuming around the others' feet for the live show clean-up. Still one of the few in there who truly listens to whoever's talking to her, and she listens with empathy.. not a bad thing. I still say she's smarter than she seems: time will tell.

In the Young & Restless makeup chair: 'Y'all gonna make me so pretty I'll be the black Brad Pitt.. Barbecue Pitt!' He worked Drew and he worked Cowboy this week, he's always working Karen and Diane, and he putted his way to the HOH room minutes before they locked the door of his trailer. He's already getting his ducks in a row so he can enjoy the week, telling Nik & Diane they're safe (only Diane's pass required a promise for next week though.) Rest well Marvin, you've earned it.

Weasled her way out of a valid accusation from Julie - and later even denied ever making the broken promise in question - this girl has a shot at becoming Queen of Denial (Diane seems a shoe-in for the title, but it'll come down to quality vs. quantity.) Last minute upgrade for late-night boozey antics once again! but Nik's starting to look another future alcoholic in the making.. at least Natalie's praying for her <urp> The coppery-silvery hair color degrade is looking good.

Ups for Julie calling out Nik on Thursday's show for breaking a promise, but they're still regurgitating the stale DNA brother/sister card for anything Nik or Cowboy. Ups for finally showing Drew stuttering his way through the game, but nothing about his & Diane's messed-up romance this week? Resounding ups for Marvin's big Y&R adventure, but a resounding thwap for missing the last chance to stop glossing over the viciousness of the Toxic Twins. It's still fun watching them all check the mirror during live voting, but titling the HOH competition 'Putt-ing Power'?? jeesh! It all adds up to a definite neutral. And yes, I did notice that they're trying to come clean on The Great Lie at last: sales pitch copy for feeds has changed from 'Unlimited Access 24/7' to 'Exclusive Live Stream' - did somebody file a class action suit? or just too many people calling Real/Macromedia to complain and cancel?? Either way I guess it means 2 feeds of fishies are status quo from here on out.

They should have kept switching - that house isn't big enough for both of them.

Not quite gay enough for the token gig. I'd like him in real life - but this isn't.

Hamster watching doesn't get better than this guy. Bath buddies forever!

The goon is gone - long live the goon :)

Unique, fun, annoying, ditzy, and oddly vulnerable. Bless her pointy lil head.

This year's Lisa, but without her luck.

Smart or not, he was first out: 'nuff said. Fold your arms and go home.
