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

It's a wrap
Drew wins 4-3
The site will stay up so we can relive our summer fling anytime.. we made it through!
A few HamsterWatch Greatest Hits of the season follow.. there were so many.. we have to go back in time to see them all
Before all the hoopla today, Drew & Cowboy were understandably a little gloaty, and filled with anticipation and excitement.. they stuck together through vacuuming and they ate PB&J sandwiches before showtime.. just before the final cut to fishies they prayed in the gym, Cowboy mentioned "sitcom" and added "same old shit" after their amen's.. Cowboy brought out Jase's old alliance sign.. and then we had a winner.. Cowboy finally got to kiss April again.. Drew & Diane didn't even hug
Our finalists had a little convo this morning I found amusing, and representative of how we've come to know each of them..
Drew gets up pre-dawn, has a glass of milk, poops, goes back to bed, waking up Cowboy who goes off to the bathroom.. Drew lets a few farts rip.. Cowboy comes back to bed, tells WAY more info than we want to know about April's sexual appetite again.. Drew laughs and says 'every night would be perfect'.. then this:
Cowboy: I'm about to tell off about myself, after my divorce I went moreless humbug.. I didn't care about holidays, I didn't care for Christmas and it had been my favorite.. I never really cared for Thanksgiving cuz it seems like family's always fighting then.. I hate it most
Drew: What do you fight about?
Cowboy: It seems I get griped up by my sisters about something, every Thanksgiving that I remember, somebody's griping at somebody.. even my last Thanksgiving and I didn't even eat with my family..
Cowboy: I never really cared about Thanksgiving cuz it seems like people get tired of eating the bird, and they get grumpy
Cowboy: Then I started dating April, and moreless being a father, you had to change your attitude all over again and pretend that you like holidays
Cowboy: I'm not lying, I put on a big show, and April's like 'you BETTER enjoy the holidays'.. but we had a good Christmas, we moved in together December 15 and had a good Christmas.. we had Santa Claus at our house, then went over to her family's and had dinner.. So I'm starting to like the holidays more.. but yanno, for me, it's so pagan, the holidays are
Drew: What's that mean?
Cowboy: Pagan holidays, it's not like it used to be, it's about the birth of Jesus and yet we have Christmas presents.. it's not about giving, er it's not about the receiving it's about the giving.. it's like a pagan holiday, like Halloween, that's pagan holiday, and Thanksgiving.. it's more commercial now, it's like 'buy this, buy that' .. it's stress! You go to the grocery store and 50 million people buying milk and eggs cuz it's Christmastime and people are buying presents too!
Drew: That's what's been nice being in here, not being bombarded by advertising all the time
Cowboy: That's your field!
Drew: I know... but some companies do this subliminal advertising, they get inside your head
Cowboy: Like a nekkid lady?
Drew: Yea.. I think the average person is exposed to like 50,000 ads a day.. it's no wonder we can't think for ourselves, we get bombarded all the time
Cowboy: And Christmas is coming!
Remember these innocent faces?
Before we knew how ugly it was all gonna get? I'm going to skip farewells to Drew & Cowboy - they had five days in the spotlight, and plenty of coverage..
Instead, let's go back and remember the happy times.. I didn't monitor the feeds 24/7, I just got lucky a lot
There used to be so many of them! And they laughed.. a lot
Remember how fun they used to be? This pantsing & full monty incident took place a day or two before HamsterWatch started keeping tabs, but it's one of the best:
There were other pantsings too, and new members in the hammock-dump club
Bath buddies forever! Some people didn't get it.. they missed out
There was other odd behavior in and around the bathtub too
Lots of creative tanning out by the pool
Outted birth couples, happy couples, and odd couples
As for our finalists..
Drew wasn't always reserved - he drank from vases, played drunken nekkid pool party, electrocuted dangly bits, and posed with Danielle-style lil devil horns
Cowboy's look changed a lot.. but he was always Cowboy
They were a good bunch, as hamsters
go, and it was fun playing with them
Thanks for playing along, fellow HamsterWatchers.. I'll borrow Marvin's words to wish that all your pain be champagne
your pal, dingo
I enjoyed the season and the cast, and reporting on them here.. I sincerely thank everyone who's visited and all those who will
I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment - the cheaper, the better
