Dear LJ friends, I need to admit something to you. I? Talk to myself. Not little chit chat here and there either. Full on conversations and, occasionally, arguments. I’m not sure what compelled me to share but there ya go… Confessional Thursday.
So, hey, I’m totally not digging this no liquids on planes things. I am flying somewhere very soon and I don’t look forward to not being able to having my own bottled water. I just know they’ll only have Dasani water on the plane and I hate that shitty tastes like the plastic bottle water. Ugh. And, yes, I’m being totally irreverent about the whole terrorist threat thwarted thing but, seriously, how long before we’re just riding in the plane naked? Yeah, I’m looking at you terrorists. Clearly your logic is not our Earth logic because I fail to see how this type of shit makes any of us sympathetic to your issues.
Enough of that, let’s talk TV:
It’s Eviction Night on BB7 and I’m a bit sad. I suspect Kaysar will be going even though voting is live and you never know what Will and Boogie will do. I’m also not sure who I want to win HOH tonight. The coup twist makes things a mite unpredictable. Is it better for the folks I like to get HOH upfront or should I be hoping that they are the ones to overthrow the HOH? I’m really disliking James at the moment, so much so that I haven’t watched the feeds for days. It’s not his gameplay, that I can respect even as he betrays people I like. No, it’s his DR sessions. What’s up with continuing to harp on Janelle being the first to go against their alliance in those? It’s not like the viewers are fooled… we saw him make the deal with Danielle LONG before Janie kicked Diane to the curb. Does he think we’re stupid? Ha.
Another thing, I haven’t really talked about BB all week which means I never talked about Diane’s departure. You know the thing that amuses me the most about it? Everyone claiming she was too nice to be in that house. Clearly delusion has set in for EVERYONE. The girl was a first rate B-I-T-C-H during her season (not to mention from the second week on this season) and everyone’s all, “Aww, you’re too sweet for this house.” Gag me with a fork. (Yeah, I *really* don’t like her.) Also it kills me that she insists on believing Janelle dumped her for personal reasons. No. Diane was gunning for Janelle. Go back and watch the week before and how angry Diane was about Jase going if you don’t believe it. But, really, it was less about who was the biggest threat to Janelle as it was about WHO Janelle could nominate given the deals she was making and the deals her teammates had made. She already had Erika on the block but she didn’t truly want Erika gone because of the bond Kaysar seemed to have with E. She wouldn’t put Marci up because she still considered him her friend and an ally. She, no doubt, wanted to put Dani up but knew it’d send James over the edge because of the suspected alliance there. Obviously she wasn’t putting Will up because she had a deal with him so she was left with either Diane or Chicken George. And, let’s be real, why put up Chicken George when you can get rid of a real threat instead? Janelle’s choice made perfect sense given the things she was juggling. It wasn’t handled the best way but there were all kinds of game reasons to do it that had nothing to do with the personal shit… that DANIELLE brought up. Way to let Dani blind your perspective, Diane.
Woah! Sorry, didn’t mean to get sidetracked by a rant that has just been waiting to escape. Getting back to tonight… should be an interesting show. Wonder if we’ll get to see the things that have been going on in the house the past day and a half. Hmmm? Oh, yeah, and Happy Birthday, Kaysar!
It’s funny that everyone is like, “I hate those CW billboards! Could they have made them any uglier?! What is up with that picture of _____________ and/or ‘Free to be _________’ for _________?!” But, uh, you’re talking about ‘em. Seriously. You’re noticing them and talking about them. Sure it’s to bitch about them but you remember ‘em, don’t ya?
Personally I like ‘em. I LOVE the green. I don’t think the images necessarily reflect the shows accurately but then promo shots so rarely do as the years go on for shows. I do think the photos accurately reflect the feel of CW promos and are memorable and I think that’s the intent.
- A quick update on my various shows. Still loving Psych. Enjoying Eureka quite a bit. Laughing uproariously at It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. And can’t wait for the finale of Treasure Hunters. G started watching IASiP because of what I said here so I know have this quote to put on my site somewhere, “Thanks TV WHORE!” Hee. Because I’ve decided that all of these shows shall stay on my schedule permanently, I’ve made icons for them (minus TH, because I’m not big on reality TV icons). Here’s a preview:
And that about covers it. Plus the day is over and I’m so ready to go home and start packing for my cruise. Wheeeeeeeeeee!
