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

Drew's making dinner
It dawns on them that it's high time Drew
start pitching in around the house
HamsterWatch episodes have been
getting carried away lately
Karen doesn't think she spoke well at the veto thingy, but apparently she made her point ok - Adria's now working her for a vote
Adria: I pray for these people every day, and I'm glad that I do, cuz they need it
They're all bored and miserable.. little worries gnaw at them:
Marvin & Cowboy don't understand why they can't play Yoplait anymore..
word on the street is that Cowboy's been hiding a letter - but even stranger, they're calling him CB now - just like the internet fans! hmmm..
Cowboy goes down for his nap.. (Natalie's bed is still prepared & waiting for her)
He decides to make it a "special" nap - off go the shorts!
He starts to get down to business.. and then he hears the camera
Everyone prepares themselves something different for lunch.. healthy & tasty
Drew's hungry but nobody made him lunch.. so he makes his own
He puts his new onion-cutting skills to use (after asking which direction to slice)
and opts for the fancy Watch-Your-Fingers method
He grabs some chips, warms up the skillet, and.. "Attention houseguests - this is a lockdown".. he cusses the timing, but obeys - grabbing more chips on his way out..
Lockdown over, he fries up the meat and dishes it out.. by knife-tip <scrape scrape>
Spread some mayo, lick the knife, grab a chip.. hmm missing something.. lettuce!
Another chip or two.. oops, dropped one! He parks his full plate 2/3 extended over the table edge, narrowly avoiding disaster - and finally takes his meal outside to dig in
"Check it out, look at this fine lunch I made!" He gloats so much over his accomplishment that they all decide he should make dinner for everyone tonight
Karen bakes.. Diane bastes.. Marvin applies mint-chip licious to a booty..
Drew shoves Nat's outfit aside <gasp> lays down and stares at the ceiling
(Drew was up late.. doing himself.. but Diane kept him company.. yep, just company)
Diane gives Marvin a new buzz and touch-up paint.. they have a friendly chat about non-game stuff.. Diane's so relaxed a little Kentucky drawl even slips out - it's nice..
They chat about makeup, making up corpses at Marvin's mortuary, lots of things..
Diane: I've never seen a dead person with good makeup
Another lockdown: Cowboy plays solitaire.. Drew thinks long and hard about Karen's cookies and joins him.. asks if Cowboy can play euchre..
Drew: Hey these are good!
Big Brother: Attention houseguests, please go to the backyard
Big Brother's given them a new toy
They read the directions:
Grab a handle, start it up, push the button
when it lights up.. sounds simple enough..
An obnoxious loud siren starts to wail..
ZAP! Diane screams and jumps away "It shocked me!!" It must be broken
They try again.. Karen gets zapped..
Diane says "I'm not touching that thing again! Is this legal??"
Marvin gets zapped.. Diane gets zapped again..
Everyone gets zapped.. they go back inside
I'm pretty sure most hamster care manuals don't recommend electrocution
Drew starts teaching Nik & Cowboy how to play and explains the important terminology
Diane's happy - she loves euchre! She always wins, especially when she's drunk!
Nik & Cowboy follow along, asking questions as they go
Diane: This'll be hella fun if you guys can learn it.. which I doubt
Cowboy: Why do you say that?
Diane: Because it's very very complicating.. I mean, well Nakomis picks up everything right away
Diane: I didn't mean it like that!
Cowboy: I took it like that
Drew explains more about how to play for awhile..
Diane: Cowboy, I'm really sorry, I can tell you're completely offended right now
Cowboy: It's all right.. actually I think I've played this before
Diane: I'm learning stuff now, and I've been playing this for years.. I feel really bad now
(Nik & Cowboy are doing better than Diane, who keeps getting confused by the rules)
Diane: I really have no idea what I'm doing.. I always win this game and my friends don't understand why.. I'm so retarded
The game moves outside and they all have a good time.. hey, Drew's happy too
They break, and Nik starts teaching Karen how to play
Drew & Diane do their usual tease 'n kiss a bit, dissing Marvin - Diane tells Drew some stuff about him harassing her that isn't true
Diane: Fuck off
Drew: YOU fuck off
Diane: You got yours last night
Diane: Nakomis is out there trying to teach Karen euchre, and she just doesn't get it
(it turned out later Nik didn't know all the rules yet)
Drew: It isn't easy to teach, as you saw
Cowboy: She's a sport
Cowboy: Both of 'em.. it's pretty cool she's trying to teach her when she just learned it
hell yea, there's a part 2 for this one - plug in
