See Ya, Cao Boi & Christina

Today, it's gonna be a little Blog, folks.

For one thing, Luke so politely pointed out last night that I write way too damn much and he doesn't bother reading past the first paragraph. If everyone only reads one paragraph, then I should try keeping 'em short - and write fewer of them, right?

Second of all, the Sens lost night and the fans booed Jason Spezza and I don't feel like getting into all of that. All I know is that, even though I often want to choke the guy, I felt sorry for him. It's bad enough that he's had a crappy start to the year - now the fans are booing him in his own building. That can't be a good feeling for a young guy who's accustomed to being treated like a hero.

Oh, and I'm not going to re-cap Grey's Anatomy, because I'm slowly beginning to accept the fact that I'm the only one in the Blogosphere who watches it, and no matter how much I love the show, I can't force you guys to love it too. I can't say I'm never going to write about it again, but I'll give you a break this time.

So that leaves Survivor, so here's the rundown - but I really am going to try and keep it short...

Adam was hot. He made googly eyes at Candice at Tribal Council, and she mouthed the words "I love you". She really should have learned her lesson. The last time she did that, she ended up with a stalker in Heavy Metal Billy.

I think the only major fault I can find with Adam is that his head seems slightly too large for his body.

Adam had better watch himself, though, as he caused some friction at camp after calling Christina annoying at the last TC. Some of his tribemates agreed with him, but a few of them thought he was too harsh in his assessment of the cop. I think if Adam had played it smart, he would have kept his mouth shut. It's better to lay low and choose your battles wisely.

At the challenge, teams competed in an extremely physical activity that had two people ganging up and prying an opposing team member from a post stuck in the sand, and then dragging them across the beach to their line. These kinds of challenges always get a little vicious, and I'm surprised everyone emerged in one piece. Someday someone's going to get seriously hurt doing something like this. It reminded me of when Luke and I used to wrestle and then he'd twist me into a pretzel, shove my face into the carpet, sit on my back, and yank my head backwards until I pretended I was dying and he'd finally let me go. The Whatchamacallits won again. But it didn't matter, because both teams were headed to TC. All they got was some chunks of bread and lamb shanks. Ewwwwww....

So at Tribal, the Whatchamacallits voted out Cao Boi (no surprise there), and then they sat down to their grody feast while the Hot Young Studs voted out Christina (again, no surprise). The big "twist" was that Nate got "kidnapped" and joined the Whatchamacallits, saving him from the vote. Which means the Hot Young Studs are dwindling quickly, leaving only Brad and Adam. And I'm starting to think Brad might be gay.

And that's a wrap! I hope it's a little bit shorter. I tried hard. Everyone have a good weekend, and for those of you coming out for Steve Agnew & Branded's last night at Gavan's - see you there!

I wanna hear how a rooster fertilizes an egg Jill!! Yes I did go back to yesterday's blog! It is quite the discussion topic though, isn't it? So at about what time will you guys be at Gavan's Saturday night? So Chad and I will know what time to come down at.

Stacy said...

you kept it short Jill - way to go!! I am still in the running for Survivor pool at work - i have Candace and Sundra - so we'll see. I have only won once and it was when Dani won!! i'll be going over to gavans whenever Jill goes most likely. Anyways nothing much happened lastnight. Today i'm running to Wal Mart to get Ricky's neice something for her birthday - but thats all! Nothing interesting on this end anyways - i see a bit of sun in Ottawa but its calling for rain all day. Anyways, have a great day,

Jill said...

Hi guys!
PK - I'll probably be at Gavan's by 10, but if you guys get there and we aren't there, drive around by the Ferry. Stacy and Ricky live next to the Catholic church, and my car will likely be there if I'm not at Gavan's. Don't be shy - Sara & Graham will probably be there too. But I'm really planning on being at Gav's by 10 'cause I don't want to miss the first set!
Oh, and NO, I'm not going to tell the story of how I thought a rooster fertilizes an egg. Luke sucks!!!

Priscilla said...

Okay Luke, so if you are reading this, would you please tell us Jill's story.

Jill said...

He'd better not tell my story.

My Sister the Chicken Scientist!!!

This is how Jill thought a rooster would fertilize an egg.... lol... try not to laugh too hard.

Step 1: Chicken lays the egg... I know this seems weird as most normal people would know that the egg would have to be fertilized before the chicken lays it.

Step 2: Apparently at this point the rooster would come over and kick the hen off of the egg.... lol.

Step 3: The rooster then proceeds to shit on the egg.... because shit is fertilizer.

And that is how a rooster fertilizes an egg according to Jill!!!!
Sorry, you say stupid things they get put on the blog... LOL

Stacy said...

OMG - that is hilarious - that has got to be the most interesting thing i have heard today!! LOL
Everyone has their theories though, i believe i used to tell one to Jill when we were younger. I had a spitting problem when i talked (ok so i still have it now at 23) anyways, she would get mad at me and i would tell her that God didnt make a towel inside of me!! LOL

Nice one Luke

Jill said...

Luke, you're a smartass.
I work around fertilizer all day, and I know for a fact that fertilizer is poop. So does it not make sense that the rooster would have to crap on the egg to fertilize it? I don't understand why this is so funny.
Watch your back, buddy - I've only put a FEW of the stupid things you've said in the past in the blog, but nowwwww.......

Priscilla said...

That is pretty funny. You seriously thought that's how to fertilize an egg?

Jill said...

Yup, I seriously did. I wasn't thinking...A blonde moment, I guess. Then Luke told me the lesson of the birds & the bees while Mom & Dad literally pissed there pants laughing. Ya ya, everybody get a good chuckle out of this, 'cause I don't say stupid things NEARLY as often as the storyteller does.

Anonymous said...

Lol.... oh I say stupid things but nothing quite like that... lol

stacy said...

that anonymous must have been Ricky - cuz he is PERFECT....lol

Sharon said...

Wow, first time I logged on today and there were 12 comments. First off, I would like to thank Luke for a) telling the story because I was laughing outloud in my space and people think I am nuts and b) for explaining to Jill the birds and the bees because I was going to until I saw that comment posted.

Now Jill here is some scoop from Josie and the City re: Grey's Anatomy
Well now I’ve got some scoop for you coming off the set of Grey’s Anatomy. Theodore Raymond (T.R.) Knight, the actor who plays the awkwardly cute George O’Malley is gay. The 33 year-old actor says there have been a few questions about his sexuality and in an effort to quiet any unnecessary rumours he wanted to openly admit he is in fact gay. T.R. says that he prefers to keep his personal life private and that he hopes the fact that he’s gay isn’t the most interesting part of him

Just a little something something for you.

I was quite dissappointed with the hockey game. I don't like Martin Gerber. I think that he has passed his time in the NHL and he should retire along with the other two old farts Hasek and Lemieux. Then Wayne told me they signed him for a 3 year 11 Million $$ contract. Were they drunk when this happened. He's been nothing but useless... instead of watching Hasek Flop around now I watch Gerber... GIVE ME EMERY!

And Lisa here at work told me about the flop that happened with losing the goal... and seriously, I would have boo'ed as well. They are really making me mad. They need to get their fertilizer together, play as a team and win some games. And lets get McGrattan out there for a scrap huh! Nothing better than McGrattan beating the fertilizer out of someone...

Sorry I just had to get some fertilizer bits in there!

Well this was truly entertaining and I think a record break number of comments will appear in here by the end of the day. Good Job Jill!

Oh one more thing. Linda named the two new calves my suggested names as Coffee and Bean... they are brown holstein twins... and I thought it would be cute. So they are coffee and bean... they are cute and if I have anything to say about it will be shown at the fair next year!

Okay toodles!

Sorry Jill my posting went on twice, please delete 1.

Jill said...

Oh my gosh, Sharon, you make me laugh! I'll have to kick the "fertilizer" out of Luke tonight for making me sound like a doorknob! haha!
As for the Sens - I'm going to wait until they hit game #20 - if they haven't vastly improved by then, I'll be calling for some heads. But for now, I'm going to try and chill for awhile and see what happens. Even in respect to Gerber. I think he's going to be fine. He was one of the best goalies in the NHL last season, so I have to have faith that he'll work out his kinks - along with the rest of the boys! The key right now is the Alfie-Spezza-Heatley line. They need to improve for the team to improve.
And thanks for the tidbit on Grey's. I read that this morning on the MSN Entertainment site. For some reason, it shocked me, when in retrospect, I guess I should have known. His character is not gay, however, so I guess it's okay that I have a little crush on him, right?
:o)

Sharon said...

Yeah that's fine.

Oh and about Brad being gay... thought that way long time ago.

And I will keep my hopes for the SENS just a little longer.

I'm laughing at the egg story and the family bonding thats going on here. Good stuff.
If you think you need to liven things up a little maybe you should try writing a blog on something world changing like your favourite Elvis pose...

And Gerber isn't very good in my opinion. He looked like a goalie who didn't want to be in nets during the playoffs last spring. I'm not sure Emery is ready but there was no point in overpaying for Gerber when Emery is already better and younger. I don't know why everyone got on his case last year after the Buffalo series. He will only get better.
Just my opinion.

Jill said...

Good Monday Morning, tout le monde!
I haven't had a chance today to post about the weekend happenings, but I'll try to get that up tonight - so look forward to a stirring tribute to Steve Agnew & the Branded Monkeys. Until then, continue to use this thread to post about your own weekends if you wish!
Also, once again hello to my anonymous poster. Too many favourite Elvis poses to pick one, though. And I'm still holding out judgement on Gerber. But Emery is definitely making a case for himself.
WOOOO-HOOOO!! 8-1 over Jersey. That looked a little more like my Sens! (I know, only one game, but after a few weeks of misery, I reserve the right to do my happy dance). And special thanks to Ricky for letting me catch bits and pieces of the game on NHL Centre Ice.
Have a good day, gang!

Sharon said...

Well we went to Cannamore Orchards on Saturday and I chatted with Jocelyne so did not hear the hockey game. However, Dan and Wayne were in the other car and were listening intently and notified us that they were up 2-1 when we arrived. And on our way home we checked and heard of their victory. I was very happy. Other than that, it was a very cold weekend. We still have no furnace and I am starting to get uncomfortably cold. Which is quite the thing seeing as I am always hot. But we really need to do something soon because I am start to be a not so happy camper.
Cannamore Orchards was not that impressive and I would pick Saunders Farm over that place from now on. Sure I have been there a few times but the scares are better and it's closer and less expensive.

Stacy said...

Good Morning All,

What did you think of the snow yesterday? We were getting ready to go to Aylmer and it snowed the whole way to Aylmer and then it was like ice pellets...its coming!!
How was the Harvest Supper Jill - how much did your Movie thing go for and who got it? We got home from Aylmer, had a bite to eat - watched The Breakup and then watched Amazing Race. Sarah and Peter were eliminated and Dave and Mary did come in first - thanks to a Fast Forward and the "Win" brothers. They would have had a 30 minute penalty if they did not come in first this leg of the race because it was a non-elimination last week. Anyways that's all for now I suppose.
Have a good day,

Up in Otter Lake we got snow!! And I mean snow as in Jeremy got his 1969 Ski-Doo that he's fixing up out and took it for a few rips up and down the road. He was super excited to try it out. Our grass was still white this morning when I left, by the time I got to the highway there was considerably less snow, and before Ladysmith it looked like it just rained, no snow there. Apparently Danford got lots more than us. Hopefully it will all melt soon, I'm not ready for snow just yet.

Sharon said...

I am not ready either. I love the snow but this year it just HAS to hold off a bit longer... PLEASE! I don't even have heat yet!

Jill said...

I love snow, but I'm being told here at work that because I am a member of the Mountainview Team, I must be at one with the grass, so I can't hope for snow for another month. But I did get butterflies of excitement seeing it falling yesterday! Yipeee!

Stacy said...

I dont mind the snow and i really dont mind it this year because i get to hibernate for most of it. ui'll be off January and then i'll be able to hide in the house till the snow is all gone - yippee!!!
i just hope its not too cold of a winter - we paid a fortune in oil last year and it was a warm winter so hopefully it will happen like that again this year!!

Sharon said...

Oh I don't dislike snow by far.Any other year I would be loving this. It's just this whole building, no heat thing. I just want the snow to hold off for another month or so. That's all :)

Jill said...

Never fear, Sharon, I think yesterday was a bit of a fluke - even if it does "seriously" snow around here anytime soon, the ground is so wet it will just disappear. I know you're a snow-lover like me, so I hope you get your heat soon so that we can enjoy our favourite season! ;o) (With LOTS of snow, I hope!)
