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
8/31/04 - Day 61 >> to the future >> dwell in the past >> latest
Diane: I'm having a "Drew's getting on my nerves" day
If you read yesterday's HamsterWatch episode, this line pretty much sums things up.. I could just stop here for today, and probably should
I started off yesterday saying I've been getting carried away and need to "simplify" .. but then they all went nuts, and we know where that led
Today the fallout continued, everyone's getting "parannoyed" and Big Brother's contributing to it even more than usual with endless lockdowns
and things going missing
Hamsters are are on lockdown for a long time - and feeling pretty rough after last night
They get to write a message for Marcellas and Housecalls, to internet fans (that's us!) They get paper and pencil!! They misunderstand the directions a bit (thinking Housecalls is a fansite rather than show, and they're to write 100 characters or less - they write a novel!) Karen doodles a quick and excellent Nakomis drawing while they brainstorm what to say.. they remember to get Adria about 10 minutes after starting..
Nik (on all the things they miss in there): ..after you've been depraved of them
Cowboy: I'll remember this every summer, cuz I'll wish I was at the Big Brother house
Adria's still being shunned and the house is still tense, but the euchre lessons/tournament continue.. Nik is now playing from a perch, or standing
Karen makes a surprising discovery.. (surprising nobody discovered it before Day 61)
Karen: Dude, I see him in there! I can see the camera! It says v-i-a.. Viacom! Shit, now I have to clean the window
Cowboy: This one's cool, you can see the tracks and the back of the aquarium
Drew: Awesome! You know we're bored when we're looking at the back of the aquarium
Diane's clearly still rattled from last night
Diane (after losing a hand): I don't know why I play this, I'm just retarded! Drew, maybe you and me someday alone in a dark place, you can tell me how to strategize this game
Diane: Karen do you wanna play? Go ahead, take my hand, I suck at this game anyway
Karen: No, I'll play tonight.. you guys are in a game.. Diane jeez don't take it so personal
Diane: I'm so stupid
Karen: You diss yourself too much Diane
Diane: I know
Big Brother: Diane, please go to the Diary Room
Another lockdown inside - most lay down to nap, but then it's another lockdown outside! They cuss and grumble, but find a new game.. they read the directions, bounce the balls awhile - having fun - then get to practicing.. Adria does best
All: It's like basketball! It's like dodgeball! It's like cornhole! It's like four-square!
It's another long lockdown.. Adria does laundry - nobody's speaking to her at all..
They practice, mope around.. finally inside to euchre, and a bridge of sorts is made
Diane (to Drew): Stop looking at me
Nik: You two sound like kids in the car.. 'he's looking at me'
Diane: That sounds just like my parents (laughs)
Diane (to Drew): Every time I throw something wrong, you make me feel dumb
Drew: I do?
(they win a hand)
Diane: It's fun when you win!
Adria: You still pissed off, Cowboy? Those shades worked you over didn't they? One shade too many
(they talk about toenails coming off, someone who cut their own toenail off)..
Diane: I did that in high school
Adria: You did that??
Diane: Yea, I had to
Adria: I couldn't do that
It doesn't last long though: Adria is back outside again, and talking to herself again..
mostly about being shunned.. it's unclear if she's talking to herself, or to us, or maybe she's just got talking withdrawals - but she talks a long time out there
Euchre goes on and on.. Marvin sends out a nice appetizer from the kitchen - Karen thanks & compliments him on it.. a quick game of Break Your Toe then they go in for dinner.. after a little while Cowboy goes out to tell Adria it's on the table
posted at TV Updates: She may have deserved the nom but not the treatment
Karen whispers to Nik about things she's noticed are missing from the house, and things she's heard Adria saying to herself about Diane.. Nik looks like it's all putting a hurt on her brain.. Diane comes in and they change the subject to Adria herself (without skipping a beat), that she must work for CBS.. it's a weird blend of right-on observations and paranoid ramblings
Karen: I heard her (Adria, about Diane) say 'every time somebody leaves, somebody else turns into the bad apple'
Then Diane stuffs her bikini bra..
Diane: Every time I dry it, the pa.. these tiny paddings come out
Fasten seat belts
Diane goes into the gym room to talk to Drew..
Diane: I just busted Nakomis for the third time today talking about something, then she looked surprised and changed the subject when I got there
Drew: I'm telling you, you and I have to spend less time together.. like today in the cloud room you said 'we're over here strategizing'
Diane: I have to say that (as a joke), otherwise they'll know when we whisper at night! We don't spend enough time together!
Diane: Sometimes you just have to listen to me
Drew: Last week I wanted something that you didn't, and I did what you wanted.. what is there to talk about?!
Diane: I'm not here to talk about us!! Every time I try to talk to you about the game, you make it about us!!
(she stomps out, then sticks her head back in the door)
Diane: You need to tell me what you want! I need you to not just sit around, I need you to verbalize it!
(she leaves again)
Drew (muttering under his breath): Fucking cunt!
more to come, but that's the gist of the day, plus the big payoff:
Diane's wail that came a few minutes later, which started off this episode:
