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

Another day in hell
Feeders were treated to a mindfuck of our own today, when Dr. Gene Scott appeared on the feeds for a few moments
It turns out a lot of people aren't familiar with Dr. Scott: a pioneer televangelist and very tweaky guy who used to buy up overnight hours on local tv stations before Nick at Nite or Insomniac Theater were around.. you couldn't turn a tv on after midnight without seeing him there spewing the most bizarre stuff.. so it wasn't a total shock to have him greet me when I fired up the feeds - but it was just wrong to see him preaching silently where hamsters belonged, with fishies audio coming out of his mouth
It soon became clear that feeders were being lured into the Parannoyed Game going on in the house, as clues kept coming and odd things kept happening, and word spread that Thursday would have a special treat for the internet fans
I predict Scott's returning to the house tomorrow, possibly to emcee some silly competition to facilitate the double eviction said to be coming this week
Somebody's been sleeping in my bed
They are really messing with our poor hamsters' addled little heads
It's nonstop lockdowns now - inside, outside, inside, outside.. and every time something else has changed in the house or yard
The paranoia meter is in the red zone, so nobody wants to acknowledge they're losing their minds, but a few of them have caught on - which adds to the fun
Cowboy noticed some things missing (or did Karen tip him off?) and was the epitome of obvious as he looked around after each lockdown.. he's told Drew about the new game - but Drew hasn't told Diane, who's too involved in her own inner traumas to notice much of anything beyond the fact that she's being given a wide berth by everyone
Karen's on to the mindfuck game in a big way, to the point of filling newly-blank spaces with nearby objects and rearranging things herself just to throw the others off.. unfortunately that also throws us off as we try to play along at home.. Karen's filling in Nik with every detail as usual, so Nik still doesn't have to do her own homework.. As far as I know, Marvin and Adria are still in the dark about it all, and of course Drew - but at least he's been notified
The clues, as they may or may not truly be:
A floater was spotted by some feeders during euchre - and I don't mean alliances
I thought it looked pinkish but it was too quick for me to capture.. then outside lockdown (to scoop out the lil corpse we thought), and then a strange fishies sequence:
You know that little aggressive pinkish fishie? The one who's often throwing himself at the camera in a 'Help, get me the hell outta here!' kinda way? This was like a hamster 'action reel' that might air on a Tuesday show.. hmm.. pinky fishie.. pinky swears.. hmm
Fishies are almost always on two or four feeds - not one.. alternating spots..
Other weird shit:
Chickens wearing bandanas/mandanas (Scottdanas?)
The chessboard awhile ago, and after a lockdown today: the board itself (the polka-dot part) is gone.. this is what the guys were doing in the pic up top
Apparently the toaster's gone, also vases and/or flowers, the 'care pear' (no clue!), possibly a fern? Cameras added/removed outside, plus new/unusual angles inside..
one of the hammocks, but that could be for the giant skee-ball setup
Drew: What's this thing? (Marv said it's to grab pots - Karen said she hadn't seen it before.. can't trust what she says about all this though - she moved that blue vase there!)
Cowboy making his subtle <koff> post-lockdown inventory rounds
(note Natalie's bed is still prepared & waiting for her)
There may be something up with the living room - and not just cuz of euchre -
lots of close-ups and features of it on feeds today..
(you expect this on live-show Thursday, setting up shots, not dullsville Wednesday)
Same with the photo wall (Cowboy thinks so too.. one of his "Night Prowler" rounds)
(I think the second one is through a mirror - their pics aren't really flipped)
Let's not forget the sadistic siren electrocution toy, and dominoes for them to "practice" (for nothing?), and any number of things like that..
Call me crazy (dingo, yer crazy!) but I say it adds up to Scott coming in as the "special treat for internet fans Thursday" as announced on Housecalls
(or maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part.. he'd liven things up again!)
And now back to our story
Drew: Diary room filled me with all kinds of stimulus
Drew: Scratch my back
Drew: You don't know how to do it right.. do it like this..
Diane: I didn't know there's a way to do it right.. How come I never get a back rub?
Drew: We BOTH gave you back rubs! Cowboy and I both did. You always complain about everything as soon as it happens
Drew: I was thinking, you've kissed four different people in this house..
Diane: No I haven't
Drew: Count them
Diane: You, Scott and Marvin.. three
Drew: And Karen
Diane: You were egging me on for that one! It doesn't count
Drew: Little slut
Diane: You're the only one I care about
Euchre, euchre, euchre.. Adria, Adria, Adria..
Diane: I had my towel on yesterday..I think it bruised me under my arms
The condom volleyball committee play-tests new recipes
Marv: This one's water, but this one's gel, try it.. it's got a good bounce and feel
Karen works and works out while the others nap
to Nik: Tee hee, we noticed it first
to camera: Did you see me move that container out there?
Afternoon body count:
Drew's channelling Scott's spirit.. unflattering Diane shots keep coming at us
Karen fills Nik in the latest plan updates (Nik isn't as good as Marv at mental math)..
then she avoids another disaster/omen by noticing Cowboy's photo is about to fly..
and finally begins the long evening Adria marathon
Drew gets all passive-assertive again, hardcore! He shoots and scores! Twice!
Karen takes it inside while Adria packs.. Nik sets yet another fashion trend
Drew (to Diane): I had a bad dream.. it's weird when you wake up and can't separate dreams from what's really happening..
Adria: You got what I need?
Drew: I always got what YOU need
Diane tells the guys she's "parannoying", bitches about Karen & Adria still talking, bitches about Jase/Scott/4H alliance.. - BOOZE!! - Marv slams a beer in two gulps and starts another.. Diane tries to find a comfy spot without much luck..
Diane (to Marv, Cowboy, Drew): Two of the fucking 4 horsemen are still here!!
(uh yea.. you are talking to them.. oops)
Adria & Karen still bonding as Adria packs.. she gives Karen one of Natalie's shirts
Drew & Diane approach each other awkwardly, and ease into their special foreplay:
Drew plays Break Your Neck and then Break Your Back with her.. she responds, and counters with Dump Your Hammock
(unfortunately this doesn't qualify for the Amy/Holly/Marvin hammock-dump club:
it has to be self-inflicted)
Drew makes a discovery.. Adria makes Cowboy smile.. Marvin euchres..
and Karen explains Diane's behavior to Drew - having been present during her teary breakdown about her dad (Drew was there too, but.. well.. he's Drew)
Drew: Hey Cowboy! Do you think there's an internet camera behind the mirror? I don't think so.. hey what is this shit?? That's disgusting! (he leaves the room)
Diane & Nik aren't happy about plans for an Adria sympathy vote..
Cowboy continues his inventory rounds in the What's Different? game
Nik: I'm so pissed off I'm dizzy
Diane has put on a pound or two in there.. Drew gets a boner (or channels
Scott some more).. the kissy-kissy-jerky-jerky crowd does their thing
Diane: My dad has the shortest fuse in the world.. I get it from him
