Pac-10 Volleyball: #10 UCLA 3 - #11 USC 0


#10 UCLA swept #11 USC. last regular season match for my honey Nellie Spicer. pic from UCLA Bruins official athletic site. love this blond goddess. she can run a quick offense... she can attack... she can block... she can dig... she can do it all w/ power, beauty and grace. love her. I hope UCLA makes it far into the NCAA tournament so I can see my honey in action again.

UCLA won the 1st 2 sets thanks to my honey getting all her hitters involved. UCLA trailed 24-19 in the 3rd set. what's up w/ USC? the Trojans couldn't close and win the set... losing 26-24. USC will head into the NCAAs w/ a 3 match losing streak. hopefully they turn things around and also go far into the tournament. backup setter Kendall Batman = cutie. she too sets a high ball like hottie Taylor Carico... though not as high... making the USC offense a little quicker... though not as quick an offense run by my honey Nellie.

in other Pac-10 action #8 Oregon upset #7 Cal in 4 sets. all ranked Pac-10 teams should make it to the NCAAs. I think Arizona will get an at-large invite as well considering it does have an overall winning record. if 7 Pac-10 teams make it to the tournament hopefully they're all spread out across this great country. looking forward to seeing the brackets this Sunday... looking forward to NCAA play next weekend... looking forward for another Pac-10 NCAA vball champion.

Amazing Race 13 - Moscow, Russia

current song: Two Hearts Beat As One by U2 on KPOI 105.9 FM

Nick & Starr 1st to leave pit stop at 21:21. clue instructs teams to fly to Moscow, Russia. pic from wikipedia.org. teams must take a taxi to a monastery... light a candle... receive their next clue.

Toni & Dallas 2nd to leave. Dallas: my mamma's the #1 person in my life... I'd do anything to win for her. awww. they meet up w/ Nick & Starr at the airport. Dallas & Starr flirt and hold hands. awww.

Dandrew last to leave pit stop at 00:41. although several hours behind all teams on the same flight to Moscow. Dandrew stole hotel slippers cuz they left their shoes at the last detour.

in Moscow, all teams encounter problems w/ their cab drivers. Nick & Starr and Toni & Dallas 1st teams to arrive at monastery. Toni's like: although we're in a race I still want to pay my respects. she is a bad mamma jamma. clue instructs teams to go to Kolosok Camp, a Russian military base... search the grounds for the next clue.

detour... boots or borscht. in each task teams had to wear a Russian military uniform. in boots, teams learn a parade march... basically goose step 1 lap in unison around the parade grounds. in borscht, teams serve 75 soldiers a bowl of beet soup.

Toni & Dallas 1st to arrive at the camp. Nick & Starr have problems w/ their cab driver. Dandrew and Ken & Tina arrive. Ken's like: the frat boys are good at travel... but they stumble at the tasks.

while changing into their uniforms, Tina's like: I gotta change behind that thing over there. Ken: why don't you just change in front of everybody? Tina: I can't get naked in front of everybody. Tina must have left her panties at some detour.

Toni & Dallas complete the task. next clue instructs them to go to a bakery. roadblock. one team member has to unload 50 55lb bags of flour from a truck... carry it into the bakery... lay it neatly on the floor.

while Andrew had a hard time putting on his sock rag, Ken & Tina completed the detour. Dandrew's like: someone should make a compilation of our mistakes. Nick & Starr finally arrive. Starr's like: there's so much out of our control... language... cab drivers... but detours we can control... we do great.

Dan has no rhythm. painful to watch. Russian soldiers laugh. I'm like: is he for real? Nick & Starr complete detour... Dandrew decide to switch to borscht.

at the roadblock Dallas carries 2 bags at a time. so does Ken. Dallas finished 1st. next clue instructs teams to go to the pit stop... Neskuchny Sad Park. Toni & Dallas win a trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. I will win the Mega Millions. I will win currency to get my aquatic on in the Atlantic.

Nick & Starr arrive. Ken's like: Nick will never be able to do the roadblock. Russian bakery lady laughs. she's like: yeah right. he does complete the task.

Dandrew finally arrives. Dan decides to do the roadblock. Andrew's like: look at the stud... that is studly. Dan: gimme simple neanderthal tasks... I can do this all day long. Dandrew last at the pit stop. non-elimination. next week they will encounter a speed bump. from the preview it's a dance routine. oh no. painful watching just a clip of Dan trying to get his groove on.

Animal Planet - Whale Wars

current song: Love Me Tomorrow by Chicago on KSSK 92.3 FM

single released in 1982. kick ass UK #1 single 26 cycles ago... I Don't Wanna Dance by Eddy Grant.

addicted to this series. in this 3rd ep Sea Shepherd captain Paul Watson works the media. 2 activists willingly boarded one of the Japanese whaling ships. he turns the events around and says that 2 of his crew have been kidnapped.

activist Kim McCoy gets on my nerves. I assume she's a trust fund kid. frell... how can one survive w/ out earning currency unless he already has currency? I will win the Mega Millions. I will win currency so that I too can become an activist and not worry about a steady paycheck. seriously... even the captain mentioned that all the people on the ship are volunteers and don't get paid. so... how do they earn a living? again... I assume they must be rich trust fund kids.

the activists miss Potts and Giles... the 2 guys on board the Japanese vessel. I myself can't say they're held hostage or have been kidnapped cuz they boarded a foreign vessel. I'd call them pirates. think Somalia.

then shots of whales being harpooned showed. damn I'm confused. love the great beasts. in fact I went whale hunting this past Friday... but the humpbacks arrive between December and May. didn't see any whales... but I did see a couple kick ass turtles. and yet I also see the whales as food for the Japanese that can't be commercially grown like American cattle or poultry. I remember some native Americans hunting whales for food. have they encountered any protests? I have to look that up.

anyway... phones ringing off the hook. captain still working the media. he then gets a call from the Japanese. they plan to hand over the 2 activists under certain conditions. he doesn't agree. Japanese and Australian governments get involved. Japanese whaling vessel will drop off the 2 guys on an Australian ship... Sea Shepherd then will pick up the 2 guys.

then in the distance Sea Shepherd sees the whaling vessel. activists are like: oh my gawd... they're taunting us. the captain's asleep cuz he has been awake 36 hours working the media. he puts incompetent Peter Brown in charge. he wants to send an inflatable boat... the Delta... to harass the whaling ship by throwing stank bombs and also disable it w/ a rope prop(eller) fouler. it's getting dark and they only have a few hours to carry out this plan.

it's like a suicide mission. I have to admit these activists have whale-sized balls... well except for Kim McCoy. she's like: we're here for the whales... we're a few dozen out of billions of people who are doing something. but what has she done? I haven't seen her go on an inflatable boat to throw stank bombs or deploy the prop fouler. she lost her cool when she spoke w/ Greenpeace. she didn't volunteer to go on board the whaling vessel.

so the inflatable boat Delta pursues the whaling vessel. helicopter flies to the vessel... but doesn't see the Delta. no radio communication between the Sea Shepherd or helicopter and Delta. and the Delta's way off course. why don't the activists on the Delta communicate w/ them? did Animal Planet have it's own cameramen follow the Delta so they weren't in any real danger?

drama on the Sea Shepherd. it's dark... no communication still. Peter Brown's like: I don't know what to do. in steps in some other guy breaking the chain of command. Peter Brown gets upset. other dude wants to head to where the helicopter last spotted the Delta and begin a grid search. oh... during this time the Sea Shepherd hails the whaling vessel asking about the Delta.

Delta finally communicates w/ Sea Shepherd. they meet up. whew. everyone's safe. they did meet up w/ the whaling vessel and threw stank bombs. the prop fouler failed. Sea Shepherd then picks up the 2 activists.

I assume that even while on board the whaling vessel, the Japanese must have continued to hunt. it's a commercial operation and so they have to make money. next week the 2 activists will tell everyone their ordeal.

Pac-10 Volleyball: #7 Cal 3 - #10 USC 1

current song: Krazy by Pitbull on Hot 93.9 FM

damn you jellyfish! none reported at Ala Moana beach today. I could've got my aquatic on. w/ the steady rain the beach would've been empty. I would've had the Pacific all to myself.

I did watch an awesome Pac-10 vball match this afternoon. Holly McPeak = shy today... wearin' a conservative outfit... not showin' off her personalities. at the start of the match Cal stood 3rd and USC 5th in the conference standings. since Cal defeated Stanford at Stanford for the 1st time in more than a generation, it has gone 4-4. 52nd meeting between Cal and USC. today Cal beat USC in 4 sets.

hottie offensive setters Carli Lloyd and Taylor Carico in action. hottie Jessica Gysin also in action. hmmm... other hotties... Hana Cutura and Lauren Williams. Zoe Garret = kinda cute. in the 1st set Cal offense too predictable... all Hana Cutura. for USC all Lauren Williams. at almost 6'5" she's lean... she has a quick arm swing... she's explosive. awesome. USC won the 1st set and in the 2nd had set point leading 24-17.

Paul Sunderland's like: Cal's goin' down faster than the stock market. boo... hiss. Cal then staged a furious comeback and tied the set at 24. bug eyed. Cal killed, blocked, and dug balls like cray-zay. on USC's side Taylor couldn't set her hot hottie hitter Williams. poor Jessica... USC had one last set point... but she served into the net. Cal won the 2nd set 30-28.

all downhill for USC from then on. Cal won the 4th and final set 25-6. damn. important win for Cal. conference standings should change. Stanford won the Pac-10 title. the Cardinal beat UCLA. Arizona upset #8 Oregon... and keeps its NCAA hopes and dreams alive. next week's televised match will be between the 2 LA schools.

America's Next Top Model 11 - McKey


single released in 2000. UK #1 8 cycles ago... Can't Fight The Moonlight by LeAnn Rimes.


finale begins w/ contestants shooting CoverGirl commercial and photo for print ads. commercial concept: the 3 girls on vacation taking boat tour of city... they see a guy... talk to the guy... they kiss.

Sam's ok. Mr. J tells her to maintain eye contact w/ camera. when it's time for her kissing scene, she's like: dude... please don't have herpes. McKey looks good. damn... does she have violet eyes? Mr. J likes the way she sounds... but doesn't like her body language twitches. poor Analeigh... she blanked out. she's like: I just saw my dreams go down the drain. oh no. Mr. J has to give her her lines. he's like: I'm surprised... she lost her bubbly personality.

Jim De Yonker photographer for the final shoot. he likes Sam's energy. to Analeigh: you look like you're gonna kick somebody's ass. oh no. he thinks McKey's a little 'cuckoo'... but he likes that.

at panel fashion designer Eddie Van Den Krommenacker's the guest judge. the 2 finalists will wear his garments in their runway battle. Sam's photo looks ok. Miss J's like: ooooo girl... your smile looks forced. commenting on Analeigh's commercial, Tyra's like: ooooo... that looked painful. Paulina's like: that sucked. Paulina comments that Analeigh's photo would be a great head shot for an actress. Tyra likes McKey's commercial. she's like: ooooo... look at you miss lady... showin' some peronali-tay. as for McKey's photo, they're like: wow. Tyra: look at that naughty smile. McKey's pic does look the best.

judges deliberate. commenting on McKey, Paulina's like: there's something Lurch about her. Miss J: you rang? McKey's called 1st. Analeigh's eliminated. poor baby. Tyra's like: are you proud of yourself?... Paulina thinks you can be a star actress... you can bank jobs.

McKey and Sam meet up w/ Ann Shoket for their Seventeen mag photo shoot. Ann's like: they both astounded me today... elimination's gonna be a tough call.

they then meet w/ Mr. J to take a look at the catwalk. it looks like a giant Lego set. Mr. J has to still top cycle 4's walk on water runway show where Naima felt 'superhuman' and Kahlen 'stomped on the girl who didn't believe in herself'. Tyra's like: make mamma proud.

judges take their seats. Miss J does her thang and walks the runway before she takes her seat. that girl can walk. Whitney's in the show as well as Ananda Marchildon... Holland's Next Top Model cycle 4 winner. McKey's like: I'm basking in all the glory... oh my gawd... look at all these people... I'm having fun... it's soooo cool. Sam looks good too. Tyra's like: work it girl.

at the end McKey's like: I'd love to win... I ain't gonna be that girl that lost in the last second. Mr. J: hey Tyra... do you wanna go up the ramp? Tyra: hell no!

at the final judging, Tyra's like: ooooo look at you two... when you 1st started you were little girls... now you're sophisticated women. photo comparisons. in swimsuit pic I remember I liked Sam's pic best that week. Nigel's like: Sam... at this point you became a fashion model. for their 1st shoot in Amersterdam I remember I like McKey's pic best that week... w/ her legs as long as her shoulders.

for this cycle's final top model in action... then blond hottie Anya. damn she's hot. anyway... McKey's the winner and I have to wait several months before the next cycle.

Humpback Whale Hunting

current song: Only A Memory by Smithereens on KPOI 105.9 FM

single released in 1988. UK #1 single 20 cycles ago... The First Time by Robin Beck.

spent half an hour early this afternoon at Halona Blowhole to hopefully see humpback whales. I thought the whales come to Hawaii between October and March... but according to a posted sign they're here between December and May. waves played tricks on my eyes... its movements looked as if whales surfacing for air.

can't get enough of friend Paco. box jellyfish invasion began today... light influx at Ala Moana beach. so... until May, whenever there's an invasion, I'm gonna go whale hunting. although I won't be able to chillax in the cool waters of the Pacific... just admiring its vastness soothes me as well. love it. I did see a couple of turtles today. awesome.

Amazing Race 13 - Almaty, Kazakhstan

current song: Womanizer by Britney Spears on Power 104.3 FM

Nick & Starr 1st team to leave pit stop at 22:14. clue instructs them to fly to Almaty, Kazakhstan... go to a chicken factory... get their next clue. pic from wikipedia.org. I will win the Mega Millions. I will win currency and visit Borat's homeland.

Toni & Dallas meet up w/ Nick & Starr. Dallas and Starr flirt. Starr: hey, are you shy? Dallas: no, not at all. Starr: well, you didn't even make eye contact w/ me in LA. before they could get a private room and recreate, bad mamma jamma Toni's like: hey Dallas... come here... look at the flight info.

Terence says something to Sarah in the cab. she's (meaning Sarah) like: babe, I'm in a great mood... I'm very relaxed. back off bitch. Dandrew last to leave pit stop at 00:00.

editing created drama at the airport w/ teams scrambling to get flights to Almaty. they all arrive and take cabs to the chicken factory. Ken & Tina pleased w/ their progress. Ken's like: hmmm... don't count your chickens before they're hatched. boooo... hisss... boooo.

chicken factory opens at 07:30. all teams rush to the clue box. roadblock... search for the golden egg. one team member must search for 1 of 7 golden eggs hidden among 30,000 chickens. clue also contains the 2nd and last fast forward. teams go to a restaurant for a traditional feast. local delicacy includes eating the fat from a sheep's ass.

Nick & Starr and Terence & Sarah go for the fast forward. Terence cracks me up. while running to the cab, he's like: babe, keep up. Sarah: I am. most likely she (meaning Sarah) would have been in front but Terence kept scolding her for running too fast. Sarah's like: babe, I don't think this is a good idea. Terence: well I do.

both teams arrive at the restaurant. Starr doesn't want to know what's she's eating. Terence's like: oh my gawd... I'm a vegetarian... boo hoo hoo... I can't do this... oh my gawd. Sarah: you can do it girl... nobody's tougher than us... stop acting like a girl and eat. Starr meanwhile pigs out. Terence: oh my gawd... look at her... she's almost done... boo hoo hoo... I give up. Nick & Starr high five each other and proceed to the pit stop. they win jet skis.

Toni & Dallas 1st to complete roadblock. clue instructs them to search the grounds for a crane truck... have truck driver take them to Kok Tobe Arch... follow a marked path to find Mongol warriors for their next clue. kick ass bird of prey delivers their clue... the detour.

detour... play like mad or act like fools. in play like mad teams go to the museum of folk musical instruments... learn to play a traditional song on traditional instruments... go to a park... get their jam on and earn the equivalent of $1.50 in tips for their next clue. in act like fools teams go to a children's puppet theater... put on a 2 person cow costume... go to a street corner and find a marked milk stand... have a drank of milk... read the clue on the bottom of the bottle. clue instructs teams to go to a bazaar... find a butcher who will give them their clue. all teams act like fools.

kinda slow moving ep. Terence & Sarah made it interesting cuz they had to go back to the roadblock after failing the fast forward. they got eliminated. Sarah's like: I know Terence is gonna have a hard time cuz he's the one who wanted to do the fast forward... in time he's gonna realize what fun we had on the race. Terence: wherever life takes me I know Sarah's gonna be a part of my life. awww!

Pac-10 Volleyball: #5 Washington 3 - #8 Oregon 1

current song: Working For The Weekend by Loverboy on KPOI 105.9 FM

Holly McPeak finally showing off her personalities again. love her.

huge Pac-10 match. frell... all Pac-10 matches important for NCAA seedings. I don't think conference schools would want to be in the same bracket as Penn State. as far as Pac-10 teams falling in the Nebraska or Texas bracket... please... no problem. middle of the Pac conference teams have defeated the best of the big 12.

got to see local girl Tamari Miyashiro show off her libero ski-zills for UW. Tamari = John Deere = digging machine. also got to see the blond goddesses of Oregon. let's see... there's blond hottie Gorana Maricic... blond hottie Heather Meyers w/ her uber-fast arm swing and wicked jump serve... and hottie Sonja Newcombe. these blond goddesses distracted me from the superb play of middle blocker Neticia Enesi. she kicks ass.

Oregon runs a quick paced offense. coach Jim Moore describes it as vball's west coast offense. rather then the setter calling the plays, the hitters do. interesting. I only watched the 1st 3 sets and each time Oregon led UW... but Oregon couldn't close out the set... well except for the 2nd, which it won. uber-digger Tamari Miyashiro helped keep UW in system.

Animal Planet - Whale Wars

current song: Send Her My Love by Journey on KPOI 105.9 FM

I thought this show would be about whale pods vs whale pods. it's actually about environmental activists willing to sacrifice their lives to save the kick ass species.

2nd ep of 7 part series began w/ Sea Shepherd spotting the Japanese vessel Yushin Maru #2. captain Paul Watson wanted to get 2 of his people on the research/harpoon (depending on one's perspective) ship... hoping the Japanese would hold them hostage. they hail the Yushin Maru #2: stop your illegal killing... hey, why aren't you responding?... where's your samurai spirit?... are you just gonna run away?

inflatable motor boat in pursuit of the Yushin Maru #2. helicopter above captures what goes on sea. Japanese fire water canon at the tiny boat. meanwhile activists throw stank bombs on the vessel. stank bombs make the ship stank for several solar days... also ruin whatever whale meat it comes in contact w/. activists want to try to disable the Yushin Maru #2's propellers to slow it down making it easier for them to board. Sea Shepherd: Yushin Maru, we are peaceful. huh?

anyway prop fouler (it looked like a very long rope) failed. activists have to board the Japanese vessel at full speed. 2 activists get on board. Japanese attempt to throw them overboard. I would. if someone entered the establishment I'd throw him out. they put up a fight and the Japanese attempt to tie the 2 activists to the ship. the Japanese then bring them to meet w/ the captain. oh... they have a letter... like a disclaimer... which says that they're peaceful, mean no harm, and that what they're (the Japanese) doing is illegal. ep ends w/ the 2 activists seen taken into the ship.

Sea Shepherd calls the media. story all over the news. western media reports of a hostage situation. Japanese media reports of piracy.

I'm confused myself. one part of me wants to protect the whales cuz they kick ass. at the same time I believe the Japanese can do whatever they want to do. they are following current laws regarding hunting/research. the Japanese will not waste the killed whales and so will process the meat for food. now, what if Hindus all over the planet staged violent protests in cow eating nations? what if Muslims all over the planet stage violent protest in pig eating nations? only difference I see is that whales not easily commercially grown for consumption.

America's Next Top Model 11 - Final Four


Paulina gives the girls some lesson in how to sell products w/out speaking, but by using their other senses. example... they're presented w/ a basket of stank fish. wannabes' expressions make it seem as if they're smellin' a bouquet of roses.

girls go to Amsterdam Worldwide for their challenge... a commercial audition w/ Mark Vanderloo. nothing's said in the commercial. models communicate w/ their eyes and body language. the concept: Vanderloo's in a cab... model chases after cab... Vanderloo gets out of cab... model kisses him, steals cab... Vanderloo now chases after cab. Marjorie wins the challenge... a $10,000 shopping spree at G-Star. she picks her BFF Analeigh and split the prize.

Marjorie calls the guys who took them on their go-sees over to the establishment to party. they bring food and dranks. hmmm... is Marjorie this cycle's Shandi? will she get drunk and recreate hunchback style? McKey's like: Sam, Analeigh and I don't drink... only Marj does. Marjorie: mmmmm... wine is my friend... ooops... I'm startin' to slur.

while McKey wrestles w/ a dude and Sam plays cards w/ another, Marjorie has drank after drank. one of the guys dares Marjorie to kiss his friend for 10 seconds. after 10 seconds Sam's like: ooooo. during the commercial break I'm like: Marjorie! Shandi! Marjorie! Shandi! Marjorie!

after the break Marjorie's in the tub w/ some guy. she's clothed while he has only his underwear on. no Shandi moment though. Analeigh protects her BFF. party over. Marjorie's like: I knew cuz I was the only one drinking everybody would take care of me... I knew I would be safe.

photo shoot w/ photographer Barrie Hullegie. girls pose in front of windmill w/ funky hair, makeup, and clothes. like Sam's photo best. pic from cwtv.com. Sam came to life in her last 7 frames. Marjorie must have had a mega-hangover. Mr. J's like: you look high... you look crazy drunk... you lack presence.

at judging Analeigh's called 1st... followed by McKey. Marjorie's eliminated.

initially I picked Analeigh, Sheena and Elina to be in the finale. only Analeigh remains. in her 1st pic she created wind. Whitney created wind last cycle and won. as far as my fav pic of the week Sam has the most w/ 4. but it seems that the judges love McKey.

I love you Paco. pigged out at the picnic... went back into the water afterwards. Paco not so nice early afternoon. lots of people in the water... tasted like sunscreen... water also murky. decided to chillax. while chillaxin'... spotted a kick ass honu. I thought I had a 'honu' label for this blog... apparently not. I decided to create a 'honu' entry so that I can make a note of when I see na honu at the beach. love them turtles. tomorrow friend Aria wants to chillax at the beach. love the Pacific Ocean.

love the Hawaii Quarter. pic from wikipedia.org. when I 1st started collecting them I knew it would be several cycles before all states in circulation. Delaware's quarter in circulation since 1999... damn... another century... another millennium. seems so long ago.

love my home state's kick ass quarter. there's King Kamehameha I... the state motto in Hawaiian of course... and the main islands. love the fact that Hawaii is part of the United States. in my opinion being a part of the US has helped preserve Hawaiian culture... but that's another entry.

what's not mentioned in the design? my friend Paco... the Pacific Ocean... cuz that's what I see around the islands. hmmm... King Kamehameha I looks like he's stand up paddle surfing. love it.

Amazing Race 13 - New Delhi, India


at 08:55 Nick & Starr 1st to leave pit stop. clue instructs them to go an apartment complex... find its park... look for the next clue. Nick: I don't mind telling the other teams little white lies if it helps us get further into the competition. hot mamma Toni & Dallas 3rd to leave. Toni: I know he's my baby... but I gotta learn how to trust him. awww. Terence & Sarah 4th to leave. streets = cray-zay. Terence: oh my gawd... look at that... an entire family (dad at the controls along w/ mom and their kid) is on that tiny moped... oh my gawd... I don't wanna watch us run over this family. at 09:51 Ken & Tina last to leave. whew. only an hour behind... should be enough time for them to complete their speed bump.

Nick & Starr 1st to arrive at the apartment complex. clue = roadblock. one team member has to climb one of 3 ladders and search for 1 of 6 Amazing Race envelopes among what looked liked hundreds of Try Again envelopes. but... there's a lot of people celebrating the Holi Festival, where they throw colored powder and spray colored water on the contestants and each other. Starr completes roadblock w/ ease.

Terence & Sarah crack me up. Terence: I'm gonna do this... oh my gawd... who's my girl? Sarah: you are! ha ha ha ha ha! then she's like: I mean I am... good job babe... I love you... good job babe... I love you. you go girlfriend.

Ken & Tina arrive. Tina gets pelted. she's like: what a bunch of morons. she does look hot though w/ her now bright green hair. Kelly's being pelted like cray-zay. she's like: oh my gawd Christy... oh my gawd... I can't do this... oh my gawd. Christy: for a million $s you can.

they all get the next clue, which instructs them to go to the Charity Bird's Hospital... search the cages for the next clue. on the way there drama queen Terence's like: oh my gawd... boo hoo hoo... I got powder in my nose... oh my gawd... boo hoo hoo... I'm still spitting out the colors... boo hoo hoo. when they arrive Terence tells Sarah too go inside the cages... dig her hands into what I call bird litter... and feel for the clue. he is a girl... letting hottie Sarah do all the dirty work. then he's like: oh... I found the clue. bitch.

detour... bleary eyed or teary eyed. in bleary eyed, teams follow power lines and need to keep track of the tiny numbered tags hanging from the lines... give those numbers to some utility dude for the next clue. Phil's like: the small numbers may be easy to miss... but teams will find this detour speed shocking. boo. hiss. in teary eyed, team members each carry a 40 pound bag of chili peppers a quarter mile away... grind them into powder for the next clue.

Ken & Tina hit their speed bump. they need to go to a Sikh temple and serve holy water. when no more people ask for holy water they can continue the race. it appears they completed the task quickly.

Nick & Starr and Toni & Dallas team up to do bleary eyed. they finish and receive next clue, which instructs them to go to the pit stop... Humayun's Tomb. pic from wikimedia.org. Nick & Starr 1st... win trip to Kauai. bad mamma jamma Toni & Dallas 2nd.

meanwhile Terence & Sarah grinding the chili peppers. Terence keeps coughing, getting her drama on... while Sarah's doing all the work. on the way to the pit stop Sarah's like: if somebody said to put cow manure all over my body to make myself feel better, I would... I would slather my body with it... that's what it's been like today. poor baby.

frat boys and divorcees having a hard time w/ bleary eyed detour. Dandrew: hey do you guys wanna work together? divorcees: work together?... don't think so. meanwhile Ken & Tina arrive and complete the task. Tina helps Dandrew out. Tina: you guys owe us. Ken & Tina arrive 4th. divorcees eliminated.

Pac-10 Volleyball: #5 Washington 3 - #9 UCLA 1

current song: With Or Without You by U2 on KPOI 105.9 FM

single released in 1987. UK #1 21 cycles ago... You Win Again by The Bee Gees.

6 Pac-10 teams ranked in the top 10... #2 Stanford, #5 Washington, #6 Cal, #8 Oregon, #9 UCLA and #10 USC.

52nd meeting between the 2 schools. damn... at least 26 seasons. UCLA leads the series 39-15... but UW has won the past 4 meetings... now 5. Washington won in 4 sets today. UCLA, w/ my honey Nellie Spicer quarterbacking an awesome offense, won the 1st set. blond goddess hottie Spicer is a very kick ass, offensive, fast paced setter. love her. in one rotation the Bruins have a front row of extremely tall hotties w/ 6'4" Sara Sage, 6'5" Katie Camp and 6'6" Amanda Gil. and they're all freshmen. damn. anyway after the 1st set I thought UCLA would win. but thanks to local girl Tamari Miyashiro... the UW libero... she basically passed and dug every ball w/ ease. she should be a spokesperson for John Deere. she helped UW take the next 3 sets for the win. love her.

in other Pac-10 action this weekend Arizona upset Cal. Pac-10 action should again change the national rankings. Arizona needs to win a couple more games to qualify for the NCAAs... same w/ Oregon State. they've each beaten ranked opponents and it would suck if they didn't make it to the tournament. next week's televised Pac-10 match will be UW at Oregon... yet another top 10 match.

Kamehameha - HHSAA Girls Volleyball Champions

current song: Can't Fight The Moonlight by Leann Rimes on KSSK 92.3 FM

friend Aria and I went to watch the girl's state vball championships at UH. Kamehameha won its 4th straight title and its 16th overall. they swept ILH rival Punahou. the ILH reminds me of a high school version of the Pac-10, where its schools win basically every championship in all its sponsored sports. earlier this cycle Sports Illustrated ranked Punahou the #1 high school athletic program in the country. the school's like a mini-UCLA.

Kam player Whitney Viveiros kicked ass. she has a wicked jump serve... she can pass and dig the balls w/ ease... she can attack from all areas of the court... she can block too. she's a senior and I wonder what colleges recruited her.

no dranks served at the arena. we met up w/ friend Noel at Queen Bee. had a few dranks... couple shots... played darts. we all ended up winning 1 game each... couldn't go home all tied up... played a final game to determine the night's winner. yours truly. thank you very much. I realize I've been going out for dranks a lot nowadays. bad for my growing pudge... good for the state economy.

chillaxed in the Pacific Ocean to stare at the sunset. water calm and cool. spotted 2 massive ships... one looked like an oil tanker... the other a Matson cargo ship. spotted peacekeeper transport helicopters. awesome.

I thought about Asimov's Robot novels. in Robots and Empire... the inhabitants of the 50th and last Spacer world of Solaria disappeared. I thought about Asimov's Foundation novels too... how the Galactic Empire began to decline at its periphery. I thought about my home Hawaii... how it's the last of the 50 States... how it's far from the capital.

I think this is my very 1st entry titled 'running'. 3 solar days in a row. so far this month I haven't gone to the gym. tomorrow I plan to work out on my chest, calves and abs... and then go for a swim. I'll decide afterwards whether or not to go running. I have to get serious w/ my Spartakiad 3 challenges. I want to improve all numbers before I do an update and compare initial vs current averages to realize all challenges.

America's Next Top Model 11 - Go-Sees


opening statements. Analeigh: the other girls don't think I'm competition... but no matter what they say it's still up to the judges. so far she's the only contestant to create wind this cycle. Marjorie: Elina gives the same face over and over and over... she thinks she's doing everything right... it's very very tiring. she rolls her eyes. Samantha: oh my gosh... oh my gosh... top 5 baby. she does a white girl dance.

go-sees challenge. at Touche Models wannabes told they're gonna meet w/ 5 designers... they'll be judged on their 1) portfolio 2) runway walk 3) personality and 4) personality. suit's like: Amsterdam's a water city... you'll be going on your casting by boat... remember, be back here in time or else you're disqualified. there's always at least 1 each cycle.

designer Marlies Dekkers meets Sam. Sam's like: oh... I'm so Dutch... I know that when I meet someone I have to kiss them on the cheek 3x. designer thinks she's 'too commercial' and will not book her. poor baby.

Marjorie's a nervous wreck, to the point of breakdown mode. at one point they all get lost. they're basically like: I'm so confused... I don't know how the Dutch can pronounce the street names. well it is their native language.

designer Mart Visser meets Elina. she's been sweatin' like a non-fat pig runnin' around the city. Visser's like: you're hot. I'm like: damn right she's hot. Visser: your back's all sweaty. oh. aside Visser's like: I don't like the idea of having her sweat on my clothes... she's playing model cuz she's not a model... I'm not going to book her. poor hot-n-sweaty hottie Elina.

Marjorie's still a nervous wreck. she's like: oh my gawd... I'm not gonna make it to a single designer. she starts to cry. for a reserved European she cries a lot. but wait... she meets w/ Dekkers. whew. the designer doesn't like Marjorie. she's like: you don't look comfortable in your body... you need to straighten up... don't be nervous. the hunchback look, which I still don't find attractive, works well in photos... but not on casting calls. Elina also meets w/ Dekkers. she doesn't like Elina too. she's like: you have a lot of tattoos... sorry, I cannot work w/ someone w/ tattoos... everyone will look at your tattoos rather than my designs. poor baby.

Visser meets McKey and wants to work w/ her. McKey loses track of time. she's basically seeing all the sights while on the boat. she's like: yay... sunshine. the other wannabes return to Touche Models. Marjorie basically gave up after only meeting 2 designers. she's like: hopefully the other girls don't make it back here on time. the other girls arrive one by one. while McKey's getting a much needed tan the other girls look at the clock and begin a countdown. it's after 17:00... McKey's not there... they all cheer.

McKey = disqualified... but she would have been the challenge winner. prize... $18,000 worth of designer clothes... goes to Analeigh. does Tyra take care of the taxes? McKey's like: I don't care much for prizes... I just wanna be America's Next Top Model.

for the photo shoot Tyra will take 2 pics of the wannabes... 1) plain Polaroid 2) all dolled up. her comments: Sam comes alive w/ make up and is very theatrical... Marjorie doesn't excite me... Analeigh is not a washed faced girl and needs makeup... Elina = stiff... McKey can model. I liked Sam's before and Marjorie's after shots best. pics from cwtv.com. Marjorie reminds me of the joker.

at panel judges like Sam's pics. Nigel: it's like a Calvin Klein ad. Miss J: ooooo girl... you got some invisible heels... you're all tip toe. Analeigh's pics look ok. Mr. J: ooooo Miss J must be jealous of those legs of yours. Miss J: mmm... hmmm. judges also love McKey. Paulina's like: I can't believe that this is the same girl who could only do boxing punches in the beginning... look at you now. Tyra's like: now we're gonna deliberate... who's gonna go on a home go-see to America... or who ain't gonna go-see Amsterdam w/ the rest of the girls?

Sam's called 1st... followed by McKey and Analeigh. Elina's eliminated. 2nd week in a row one of my initial top 3 favs gone.

talked to friend Cy(c)lon(e) Andrew today. I asked him about how he 1st started training for triathlons. he's like: I could run pretty good before... I did a couple marathons... swimming was hard... I had to get the proper technique... I wouldn't time myself... I would swim as far as I could. I seriously look non-lean... obese... standing next to him... like an anaconda that swallowed a capybara whole. speaking of animals... the Miami Metrozoo has 2 kick ass jaguars. what's up w/ the Florida panthers? I'll look online. anyway... I'm thinking about doing a personal sprint triathlon as one of the challenges for my 4th Spartakiad next cycle. still gotta complete my 3rd Spartakiad...
