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
9/19/04 - Day 80 >> to the future >> dwell in the past >> latest
Stick a fork in us, we're done
This was a good day for everyone to catch up on missed sleep, them and us both
Fallout from the jury questioning rant continued to obsess and upset internet fans more than the players, as usual.. screw DNA (DoNotAssume) - this season has been all about hearsay - both in and out of the house
I spent some my new-found spare time by filling in gaps in a couple HamsterWatch episodes (yes, there's still more content missing, but it will come), and by starting a long-overdue daily index for the site.. it too still has gaps but it's a start.. I figure it may come in handy for Wednesday morning quarterbacking, and when we all return here in the months to come to relive this twisted summer fling of ours, we won't have to slog through all the crap to get to the days we like.. but, every day has something
As for this day..
In a rare vertical moment, Drew gets reflective, and clues us in a bit more about his apprehension about life, life after college, and after Big Brother
Drew: You know you're gonna miss this place some when it's over
Drew: You gotta miss some of the sheltered parts of it a little.. not being out in the world.. everything's taken care of for us here
Cowboy: I think going to work probably beats staying in here for 3 months
Drew: You've worked like 3 jobs right? And this is better than that?
Cowboy: No, I'm not gonna miss it.. some things that happened here, sure.. but I'm not gonna miss being here
Drew: Yea, you will!
The bachelor pad kitchen goes into service tonight - which would possibly surprise the evicted house cooks - but they pull off a nice meal: pre-fab kebobs, baked potatoes, sweet corn, strawberries.. I know, it's not much, but it is beautiful food photography.. and it's all I got - they didn't do much else - and there's read-between-the-lines convo
Drew: I had a dream with Lori in it
Cowboy: Did you?
Drew: Yea, I forget what happened in it though
Cowboy: I was having nightmares thinking I was still awake
Drew goes to work chopping up kiwis, and carefully removes some water once the corn goes in, having forgotten what he learned in science class about displacement
Drew: I'm taking out some of this water, I didn't want to scald my hand by trying to take it to the sink
Cowboy cleans the grill and cooks up the kebobs.. gullible internet fans once again snicker cuz of the horrendously skewed version of Cowboy's steaks that aired on the show.. tonite's kebobs came out as perfect as those steaks did (and as beautifully photographed).. tonight's spider distraction was only momentary
They dish up and sit down to eat.. Drew says grace tonight (and the food's still hot when he's done).. they eat mostly silently except for polite comments about the food
Drew (saying grace): We're only here because of you.. we just want to say thank you for having us here, and hope we'll be safe for the next couple days, and enjoy each other's company around here
Cowboy: Thank you for your part in making all this, Drew
Drew: Oh yea, uh.. thanks for doing the grill
A bit of convo strikes up as they finish: Cowboy telling stories about his paper route.. they wash up together.. they barely leave each other's sides all day.. they're like a waiting room variation of the Odd Couple
They joke about getting a movie, or maybe they think they will get one.. but they don't.. Drew looks to the future, then he looks around the room, discovering things in it.. he's not a boy, but not yet a man
Drew: Tell you my plan.. I'm gonna have a big party with ten ladies over.. and we're gonna play strip jenga.. and after I'm gonna fuck her
Drew (about crystal ball): Wow, this is cool!
Drew (about plasma screen): It's like war, and the galactic ships are colliding with each other
They play golf..
.. and go through their basket of peanut butter snacks & candy
Drew expresses some doubt over cards about Diane, some "conscious".. Cowboy steers him away - mostly, and he's over it quickly
Drew: That was the worst thing.. to see Diane go to the door, crying like that..
Cowboy: Well I don't think you broke her heart on a relationship level.. I think you broke her heart cuz she didn't win the game, and she would have
Drew: Scott & Jase would've killed us
Cowboy: Yes they would have
Cowboy: I just thought of something. Karen defending Nakomis.. Marvin defending Diane..
Drew: Yep.. I think Marvin with me, he just didn't have anything better to ask me
Drew: That is weird how that happened..
Cowboy (snickers): I bet Diane is like, 'why'd he keep Cowboy in the game?'
Drew: Five girls and three guys, and two guys are left in the finals.. I don't know what that says but it says something!
Cowboy: And here I am with you
Drew: The thing is, if it was me and her and Nakomis, it would have been her and Nakomis
Cowboy: Oh yea!!
Drew: I would've been gone, just like Nakomis is
Cowboy: She'll beat herself up the rest of her life over carrying on that way (crying)
Drew: I had a dream about Lori.. she was like talking about Todd the whole time.. it was like pffttt
Drew: After three months being here, do we have the same brain wavelength? What is my card??
Later at the hot tub.. well, things just get a little iffy.. then they get ready for bed, together, like always.. Cowboy lubes up like Drew.. wears his towel like Drew.. Drew is using the eviction corner now.. he continues avoiding anyone get a shot of his goodies
Drew (reading Bible): Do you know what the word 'kosher' means?
Cowboy: It means everything's ok.. do you mean like kosher bread?
Drew: It says 'don't contradict God, if God says it's kosher' (he goes on a bit, about forbidden foods, etc)
Cowboy: It just means everything's ok
Drew: I like that word
Cowboy: That's one word I actually kinda know!
Beddy-bye time and Drew packs up to move to the eviction bed.. sky-cam shot makes it feel like they're building a fort.. they read Bibles and quote to each other, once again causing irony & symbolism fans to clap with glee at the passages they choose.. no idea what's going on in the 4th shot but feedmasters deemed it worthy of adding a date/timestamp - that's a first
Drew: 'A wise man thinks ahead.. a fool does too and brags about it'
Cowboy: 'An unreliable messenger can cause a lot of trouble'
Drew: I had a dream last summer.. Jesus was in my dream, and he was talking to me.. I couldn't really tell what he was saying, but he looked kinda scraggly
Wish I had more for you, fellow HamsterWatchers..
I warned them it could come to this way back during
Holly days, when they started kicking out the fun ones
