dudes, it's raining like crazy this evening. i like that. the sky is dark and the rain can be heard on the windows from time to time. these are the best circumstances under which to watch a movie; which i shall finally do tonight. for some reason, i've had weeks and weeks where i could take in a film but i always end up milling about on the internets or watching the BB feeds. speaking of which...
BB7 | Erika took the secure route (and thank god for that). hopefully Janelle still has her eyes wide open. Boogie inserts an ignorant anti-Muslim view while 'mocking' Kaysar. the usually calm Erika unknowingly shows her ugly side (ugly to ugly, that is) by being strangely arrogant and condescending towards Chicken George, telling him that he and her have !AN ALLIANCE!. for some reason, she's starting to lose her mind. go Janelle :) ps. i was seriously hating Will for the despicable way he was playing this season, but i've turned a corner recently. i don't know why. maybe because he's taken Janelle under his wing this past week. i think the only season i hadn't watched before was Season 2. the Evil Dr. Will season. i'd heard about it, of course, but never saw it. these caps make me feel all funny inside. as if i'm watching a younger version of Dr Lecter during his first stab at BB. the experience is not there, but you can still see the brilliance and the madness in his playing. ...awesome! :) (having said that, no one will ever make me like Boogie. now that's a waste of a human being.)

love this horoscope (and i believe it, as things have started flowing in that direction recently--and thank god they have. it's great when things go as smoothly and effortlessly in that department :)
This week: 21/08/2006-27/08/2006
Take charge! As the week begins, others look to you to take the lead - even if it's just to pick a few fancy dance steps. From Wednesday afternoon and on through Friday, you can expect to be exceptionally perceptive. You're always ready to lend a sympathetic ear, of course, but that's even truer right now. This weekend, you're a veritable magnet for affection and admiration. Nobody can resist your easygoing charms, so expect a momentous weekend, whether you're happily coupled or free and flirting.and this one too:
You're Christopher Columbus on Monday. You're leading ships full of people towards an exciting discovery. How you came to be the leader you're not exactly sure, but you tend to fall into leadership roles rather smoothly on a regular basis. Tuesday and Wednesday, the big picture is clear to you. The details? Someone else will handle those. Thursday and Friday, some celebrating is in order. In a social situation, take a passive role. Let someone else be the life of the party. Listen up, and what you learn may amaze you. Saturday and Sunday are super days: romantic, beautiful and busy (in a good way).
Kal Penn just signed up for 24? alright. i like him and he should fit right in, but i'm not sure about the whole Muslim/mosque angle - again. maybe someone fucked up and his role is pure speculation, because how many times can they sidestep the obvious China thread now? i want a Chinese/24 Prison Break goddammit. we need to shake things up. for the record, i do believe this'll be the year we get away from terrorist plots (crossing my fingers).
BB7 | Janelle is gonna need some serious detoxing after what Mr. Blinky is putting her through. she's brainwashed. i really hope James' efforts to go back to her are genuine. they could wreck havoc together in that house.

BB7 | i've finally caught back up to thursday's show. i'm about to start the HOH comp. no idea who won yet, so shhh on that for now, please. thank you:)
that's about it. the feeds have kept me really busy. i'm trying to give the sun most of my time, though. taking advantage of that this summer. speaking of which, my mom and her boyfriend left this morning (how high school does that sound??!) for an 11-day camping trip :) so anyone in need of some pool activity, please drop by. i've also started looking into getting a digital camera. i'd been checking them out from time to time earlier this year but i really want one for this fall when i go visit my brother out west. and i don't want a flimsy one either just for the trip. i want quality (although not SLR quality just yet - my wallet still needs a bit of catching up if i wanna be able to play at the same level as my tastes are running ;) i've always had an eye for visual art, and i've had some opportunity to take pictures. my dad was an avid photographer. i still have his old Yashica camera (although it's not working); he took it on every trip with us. so yeah, i've always loved taking pictures but i haven't had a chance to experiment or delve as fully into it as i would have liked to. but this trip is the perfect chance to finally get on with this wish, get a good camera and start taking pictures. i've started looking at cameras more seriously this past week, and one of my top choices right now is Canon's Powershot S3 IS (although, if i had the money, or generous friends, i'd go for Canon's Digital Rebel XT SLR in a second). it's a good price and i've been looking at pictures taken with it on Flickr to judge the camera's picture quality and some of the results are simply astounding. this might be it for me.
have a great evening.

BB7 | Janelle is a fucking dumb bitch. period. she was blindsided big-time. and why can't anyone just ask her why she won't put up Will instead?? doesn't she see Will has stopped saying he was miserable in the house for the past week or so? he's ready to come out. and sequester is where it will all begin. i haven't seen who she put up against Erika yet but i really hope someone talked some sense into her thick, lovelorn skull. come on, Janie! think, dammit! James. this is your time to shine. save the S6! if Janie goes with this plan, i will not feel sorry for her from now until the game ends. this is the dumbest, silliest move ever. and the fact that everyone around is telling her this should be a big enough clue for her to see Will played her. BB, baby, payback. i would now hope that the S6 would scatter and James and Kaysar team up. they've been working really well this season (especially in light of Janelle's dumbass veto logic).
end of rant:)
