Joe and I have been looking forward to this day for quite some time.
It's the day the 25th season of Survivor starts!!!
We look forward to a lot of other shows, but those are a post for another day, because tonight was all about one show. Survivor.
We had beer--Michelob Ultra, 95 calories, 2.6 carbs. We got two pizzas from Papa Murphy's--cowboy pizza, it was delicious, so don't ask about the calories or carbs. It's the night Survivor starts, dammit. We did skip the cookies, however. Only because there aren't any. We're not saints.
We selected the exact place on the couch we should park ourselves for maximum viewing pleasure...and then of course the dog had to go out, three times. The pizza was delicious, the beer refreshing, the dog aggravating, the show interesting.
We marveled over how well you get to know the players now as opposed to other seasons, where the players were all nameless rabble until the final 10 or so. Then you got to know them really well.
Not this season. We got to see the good, the bad, and the ugly tonight, right off the bat. I discovered that Jonathan, one of the medical evacuees who was allowed to return, sounds exactly like Alan Alda. We like the petite brunette with the short hair who is a sex therapist. We did not like the blond in the yellow bikini (a student, who ran track, and was miss former teen whatsit) or the brunette in the yellow bikini (a know-it-all investment banker, lying that she's an executive assistant.) They're too giggly and have no idea what this show Survivor is all about...and didn't even recognize Lisa Welchel, who played Blair on Facts of Life.
They probably weren't even born when that show was on.
Russell, another evacuee bought back, said he refused to take the leadership role, all the while forcing himself down the throat of his fellow campmates as...their leader.
No one else really stuck out, except for Zane, whom I we pretty much hated on sight.
|Jeff, welcome back to our humble living room. Where you belong.|
Zane was no different. Bye Bye, Zane!
Stay tuned for next week, when there will be a different delicious dinner, a new episode of Survivor, perhaps a new and unique place to sit on the couch but most importantly, we'll be one week closer to Halloween!
And I'll be waiting. AAAaarrrgghh, Maytee!
|Soooooo ready for Halloween. 11 more days til D-Day...Decoration Day.|
