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

Karen's in the game
Finally! It sounds like a combination of small hands, powertools, and rum and/or vodka shots gave Karen the edge she needed to be dropped right into Adria's lap.. I knew Karen's stock would rise if she'd booze it up a bit - doesn't take much.
She says she's going to take the veto home..
"I wonder if it can be engraved"
A sunny SoCal day in late August plus ice - yep, it was a quick competition
Diane wastes no time bringing the new guy into her bed..
Karen & Nik have a rushed what-to-do meeting in the pantry/conference center..
Currency exchange rates for the day are established:
one bag of peanut M&M's plus a handful of Sociables equal one Bud Lite
Karen, Cowboy, and Nik have a rousing discussion about anthropology, evolution, geology, theology.. Karen contributes most of the ideas, Nik the factoids, and
Cowboy the Cowboyisms.. Drew eats, nods, and says "that's crazy" a lot
Drew tries new methods to get some game info from Diane while she naps..
Cowboy watches Adria work out in the new gym (his view, from the creepy-cam)
Adria gazes serenely at the photo wall.. then snickers and walks away (huh?)..
She makes a snack, talks to herself, snickers some more, and bites her nails (Nat??)
Right on schedule, Adria approaches Karen to work her about the veto..
Karen: Are you pissed off now that you picked me?
Adria: Not at all
Karen: You still wanna hang out with me?
Adria: Sure, why wouldn't I? ..if you want to give it away - I'm available
Adria: I don't see you as a target.. you're scary, but you're not a target
Karen: I'm not scary!
Adria: Sure you are.. everyone has their advantages
Diane: Somebody should go outside and rescue Karen
Cowboy (re April): I didn't have an orgasm the first night.. I usually don't the first time
Cowboy: I can count the number of women I've had on one hand.. how about you?
Diane: One hand and an accident.. It was like a penetration thing and then done - to me those don't count
Cowboy: Have you ever cheated on someone?
Diane: No, but I was with someone who was cheating with me.. it was a best friend kinda thing - well, not a best friend, but a best friend of a best friend of a best friend
Drew: That's the kind of girl she is - she'll be with a guy knowing he's with someone else
Karen asks Marvin his thoughts on the veto, and they talk about the game
(but tell us how you really feel Marvin!)
Marvin whispers quickly to Cowboy that he's safe this week, then chats with Drew in
the gym (about the gym).. later Cowboy tells Drew what Marv said.. Drew runs with it
Drew has to do his laundry: first the hose has a problem and sprays all over.. he cusses at it and cleans the window.. then he cusses at the faucet some.. finally he dives into his huge pile of laundry, washing it in the bucket.. Cowboy and Marvin tease that he left it too long and can't play with them.. Drew's just not having a good day
Diane is upside-down again, and now Adria is too! And Adria does it better! (Diane's not going to like that).. meanwhile Cowboy's having trouble staying right-side-up
Poor hamsters are really bored with nothing to do (except Drew, who's still doing his laundry).. then Cowboy gets some condoms..
A condom breaks on Karen - "I got jizzed!" - but she keeps playing!
Everybody plays (except Nik) - they have a great time!
It wears them out and they're all in bed by midnight.. even Drew & Diane go to sleep
Snippets du jour
Natalie's gone but her spirit remains
Cowboy: What do toilet paper and John Wayne have in common?
Cowboy: They're both rough and tough and don't take shit off nobody
Adria: But.. doesn't toilet paper take shit off people?
After volleyball while Drew was folding his laundry, Karen tells him she won't use veto (he's super relieved), and that he's the only guy in there who is always the same.. day after day, he's always the same.. he responds 'I feel the same about you'
Other Drew quotes of the day:
Last night I said the worst thing I could say! Marvin asked me how my day was.. I said 'Well, I escaped the block again' - I can't believe I said that!
Diane's always in the loop.. am I playing this game the way I'm supposed to be?
Marvin just scares the shit outta me this week!
Adria: I always saw you as a sharp player.. you'll look at all the benefits..
Karen: Everyone's got good and bad points: Marvin's mouth, Cowboy feeling sorry for himself, Drew's the quiet one, Diane the feisty one, I'm the homemaker, Nik the smart one, you're the sporty one
Adria: That's kinda not the point, know what I'm saying?
Ok, this is just tweaked: Adria in bed, talking to (her pillow? a shirt?) calling it Lenny and saying she loves it/him.. complete with nuzzles and deep kisses.. what's up with that??
(cooey voice) 'Oh stop, don't do that <giggle> no, don't stop.. I like it!'
It's not like she thought she was alone, either - Cowboy was there for some of it!
