thought about a triathlon this afternoon... decided to rest... went walking. nice afternoon... water nice escape from heat and humidity. walkin' chillaxin' too... spotted lots of regulars. lots of people out n about being healthy. a friend spotted this muffin top in a bikini... she seemed surprised at that muffin's confidence. I told my friend that perhaps ms. muffin top's skinnier than ever and that she wants to show off her bod.

what the frell did I swim in this afternoon? stayed away from beach yesterday due to 40,000 people attending the commercialized lantern floating ceremony. after a week of funk I pictured the ocean to be clear. on the surface yes... but swimming and looking under the surface... frellin' gross. imagine a goldfish bowl... stir up the gravel to disturb the trapped excrement... see all the fine brown funk moving around the bowl. gross. I showered and yet I had a film of funk on me.

AVP Houston - Dalhausser/Rogers

current song: Red by Daniel Merriweather

1st televised match this season I've seen w/ local boy Sean Scott. he and his teammate John Hyden got decimated in straight sets by the thin beast and the professor. Dalhausser should be on dancing w/ the stars... he's be the ballroom beast.

highlight of the match... ball spiked off the head of the thin beast... cap and sunglasses sent flyin'. announcers mentioned that's how other teams can win... hit the ball off Dalhausser's head and make in angry... make him lose focus... basically get into his head. boooo! hisss!

w/ their victory... Dalhausser and Rogers earned over $1 million on the domestic tour. amazing. Kiraly and Steffes lead everyone else w/ over $2.9 million in earnings. amazing.

Mike Whitmarsh up there as well. surprised to read online that he committed suicide. what the frell?

AVP Houston - Kessy/Ross

current song: We Are The People by Empire Of The Sun

Kessy and hottie mini-muffin top April Ross won their 1st AVP title. they defeated Branagh and Youngs... who also looks like she has a mini-muffin top... in 3 sets.

love mini-muffin April... her array of shots... her kick ass jump serve w/ her cute little grunt... her passing stance w/ her arms in the air lookin' like Shiva... her blocking and defense. she also showed off her coin slot this afternoon.

Branagh and EY didn't show off their coin slots... but their bikini bottom uniform had their names. how cute.

also found out hottie Holly McPeak retired. she earned over $1.5 million in 18 seasons domestically. damn.

Americal Idol 8 - Kris Allen

current song: Day 'N' Nite by Kid Cudi Vs Crookers on Da Bomb 102.7 FM

I already found out Kris won before show aired here while at the beach this afternoon. I decided to get my nationalism on... join this great country... and actually watch the finale. glad I did. it's like for 2 hours... forget about everything... just watch Idol and think of nothing else.

in attendance... hottie Janice Dickinson. love her. also spotted Kimberly Locke.

top 13 started off by singing So What by Pink. kinda cheesy... but who cares?... everybody's havin' a good time.

last season's winner David Cook sang his new single. didn't watch last season at all... 1st time seeing him perform. one thing I like about the contestants... no auto-tune. David can sing. not bad.

Queen Latifah and Lil Rounds sang a duet. why couldn't Lil get her funk on during the competition?

Anoop Dogg and Alexis Grace performed I'm Yours w/ Jason Mraz. I honestly thought Kris would have sang this song during the finals.

Kris then sang w/ Keith Urban. don't know any of his songs. as I've written before... Kris' like a regular dude we can all sing the national anthem w/. liked their performance.

Idol girls butchered Glamorous by Fergie. Fergie butchered her own song as well. awful live. Black Eyed Peas then sang Boom Boom Pow... current #1 single on both sides of the Atlantic. they definitely employ auto-tune. love performance though. rewind.

a blond Cyndi Lauper and Allison sang a duet. rewind. shout out to Cyndi: close your books when on stage.

Danny Gokey performed w/ Lionel Richie. love Gokey's blue-eyed soulful voice... but can't stand Lionel Richie's music. fast forward.

Adam Wentz... in full on Ashlee Simpson punk/rock wannabe mode... performed a medley w/ KISS. stark contrast w/ Kris' performance. beer vs champagne budget.

Santana and finalists... hmmm... cheesy... but again... who cares?... they're all havin' a good time. Steve Martin kicked ass playin' his banjo.

Rod Stewart kicked ass too. what I like about older performers like him, Cyndi... and even Lionel Richie... they can actually sing... no auto-tune in use. everyone's havin' a good time... even Janice Dickinson... she's dancin' and singin' along.

Kris and Adam then sang We Are The Champions by Queen. love Queen.

Simon: to both of you... each brilliant... nice people... both should be proud of what achieved... future is yours.

after close to 100 million votes... hundreds from me... Kris declared winner. will his debut song will be next week's #1 single?

American Idol 8 - Finale

current song: I Know You Want Me by Pitbull

$2.449 per gallon for unleaded gas at Costco.

Adam Lambert Wentz covered Mad World by Tears For Fears. when he 1st sang this song I liked his performance best that week... only because every other contestant sang ballads and they sucked ass. Adam not only in Ashlee Simpson punk wannabe mode... but also tryin' to be goth w/ the coat and smoke effects. fast forward. Simon: always thought that this was your best performance... maybe it's the coat... overly theatrical... little Phantom of the Opera. immediately thought of Rhydian.

Kris Allen better in the 1st round. haunting. sang w/ passion. Simon: to be honest I wasn't sure if America made the right choice last week... I take it all back after this performance.

2nd round... Adam sang a song I have not heard. sounded good. I don't feel his passion... he likes to scream and look passionate. not bad though. Simon: all I can say is that you're 100% back in the game.

Kris covered What's Going On by Marvin Gaye. this song I know. Kris showin' off his ski-zills... played piano earlier... now the guitar. he does remind me of Jack Johnson. he kicked ass. rewind. thought 2nd round went to Kris as well. Simon: love the song... but being honest... it looked like 3 friends strumming to Marvin Gaye... too laid back for a night like this... round 2 a million percent Adam.

Kara co-wrote the winner's single. I have a feeling she wrote it specifically for Adam to win. totally generic formulaic rubbish. would love to have just fast forward to Simon's comments... but I had to listen to each contestant sing crap. Adam sang it well. Simon: I won't judge you on the song... I'll judge you throughout the season... best original talent ever on the show... whole idea is to find the next worldwide star... w/ all my heart, found that in you.

Kris painful to watch. he sounded off from the beginning. Kara definitely co-wrote the song w/ Adam in mind. again... painful to watch. Kris seemed to struggle w/ the high notes... voice cracked a few times. Simon: highlight your 1st song... watching you throughout competition and how you've grown... incredible... mom & dad must be very proud of you... you deserve to stand on that stage tonight.

Kris deserves to win. would love to see judges stunned in silence.

USC - NCAA Men's Tennis Champions

current song: Dust Devil by Madness

USC's men's tennis team... which finished 2nd in the conference during the regular season... won it's 17th national title in the sport. the Pac-10's 8th national championship so far this athletic season. tough loss for Cal... runner up for the 2nd cycle in a row. one of its players got injured during a doubles match... forcing a change in the singles match ups.

lots of conference teams still alive in the postseason in several sports. in NCAA women's golf... 3 Pac-10 teams currently in the top 5 after the 1st round. 7 men's golf teams... most of any conference... will be in the hunt for a national title when competition begins next week.

in softball... 6 Pac-10 teams... again most of any conference... will play for WCWS berths this weekend. w/ Arionza vs Standford in 1 super-regional... the conference will be guaranteed a league representative in Omaha for yet another cycle.

in women's rowing... 5 conference teams... again most of any conference... will compete for the final aquatic title of this athletic season.

Pac-10 schools amassing lots of points in the director's cup.

24 (Day 7) - Season Finale

current song: Jump In The Pool by Friendly Fires

modernization
Europeanization
capitalism

24 ended it's 7th season tonight. whew!

I believed Tony to be deep deep deep undercover. basically he wanted to find out who killed Michelle. Tony meets Alan Wilson... the mastermind... and starts talkin' way too much w/ him. bug eyed when I found out Michelle died while pregnant w/ a son. I'm yellin': shoot him! Tony gets shot... Wilson taken into custody.

Wilson may get away w/ everything. nothing can connect him to any of the events. while in custody who knows what Renee did to him. when they 1st met... their eyes made me feel that they had a past connection. I assume they recreated in the interrogation room.

speaking of romance... Taylor has needs too. naughty naughty President. hottie Olivia's involvement in Hodges' death all out in the open. Henry wants to keep his family together... Taylor has to obey the constitution. I assume their marriage done. perhaps next season Ethan will be the 1st gentleman.

highlight of the finale = hottie Kim. she knows operatives out to get her. female bad ass holds knife to Kim's throat... Kim stabs bad ass in the leg. rewind. I also watched the scene where Jack slashed the throat of one bad ass... stabbed the throat of another... and choked a third... several times.

anyway... Kim's male bad ass escapes... she follows him. she sees the polizei. bad ass tries to drive away... polizei shoots... car flips over... vehicle on fire. Kim sees laptop... grabs it... bad ass grabs her arm... her jacket's ablaze. I'm yellin': stop drop roll!

Kim: I needed to get the laptop to back trace the signal. oh yeah baby... talk techie. more dirrr-tay tech lingo: they still can't source the transmission? love her. shout out to Elisha Cuthbert: when you're in Hawaii... let's get our spacer bronze on... get some dranks.

Jack's dying. Kim wants to do the experimental stem cell treatment to save her daddy. now I have to wait 8 months for the next season.

AVP Riverside - Branagh/Youngs

current song: Boom Boom Pow by Black Eyed Peas

watching AVP for several seasons... strange not seeing Kerri and Misty in the finals. Kerri's expecting a baby boy... hmmm... perhaps she gave birth already. Misty's still recovering from her injury. will they ever team up again?

I hoped Misty and Kerri would be pregnant and give birth at the same time. hottie Holly McPeak mentioned that Kerri will team up w/ Rachel Wacholder, who just gave birth... and they will be in sync.

love April Ross and her cute pudge. w/ vball players being lean... April's beach vball's equivalent of a muffin top. April = mini-muffin top. love her. she and teammate Jennifer Kessey... the current goddess of the beach... still seek their 1st AVP title. they lost in the finals to spacer bronzed Branagh and Youngs in straight sets.

AVP Riverside - Dalhausser/Rogers

current song: Poker Face by Lady Gaga on Da Bomb 102.7 FM

1st televised match I've watched this young season. players look pale... no spacer bronze. 1st set went to Gibb/Rosenthal 21-17.

after commercial break... interview w/ Kerri Walsh and Casey Jennings. they're expecting a baby boy. I seriously need to work out to get my lean beach vball bod rather than look like Kerri's twin.

loathe tape delayed matches. after another commercial break... 2nd set halfway done. either Gibb/Rosenthal swept in overtime... or match went 3 sets. at set point thin beast had a monster block.

3rd set and match went to Dalhausser/Rogers. combination of Gibb/Rosenthal errors... and several blocks by thin beast.

Todd Rogers wins his 50th AVP title. he and thin beast split $24K for winning the tournament.

America's Next Top Model 12 - Teyona


single released in 1983. UK #1 26 cycles ago... True by Spandau Ballet.

congratulations to Allison. pic from cwtv.com. in the finals... she kicked ass in her CoverGirl commercial w/ her smooth delivery... she kicked ass in her final photo w/ her sex appeal... she kicked ass in the runway show w/ her fierce walk/crawl.

why did ANTM fire Paulina? in my opinion she must have disagreed w/ Tyra, who already picked this cycle's winner regardless of what happened in the competition.

how long do I have to wait for next cycle's shawties?

American Idol 8 - Top 3

current song: Mr. Telephone Man by New Edition on Hot 93.9 FM

single released in 1984. UK #1 25 cycles ago... The Reflex by Duran Duran.

each contestant sang 2 songs... a choice by the judges and a choice of their own.

Paula wanted Danny Gokey to sing Dance Little Sister by Terence Trent D'Arby. oh no... what has Paula done? reminds me of Jasmine Trias' season when Paula chose an awful song for her to sing... painful performance... Jasmine eliminated. Gokey's gonna get his groove on. listened... not watched his performance. sounded ok. I personally like Wishing Well. Simon: I have to remind these 2 girls this is a singing show... I have to agree w/ Kara, your dancing looked desperate... vocally good... what's w/ the sax?... Paula on the right track... but she chose the wrong song... I would have picked Sign Your Name.

Randy and Kara chose Apologize by One Republic for Kris to sing. don't care for this song... loved Kris' performance. as I've written before... he sings like a regular dude. the country would be able to sing the national anthem along w/ him. Simon: Paula, how can you say that he sang a bum note and yet say that you're proud of him?... you don't make any sense Paula... Kara, how can you choose a song for him and blame him for doing that song?... if you wanted him to play the guitar, then you should have let him... overall a competent version of the original.

Adam Lambert Wentz sang One by U2... one of Simon's fave songs. Simon had to get permission from his buddy Bono for Adam to perform the single. I personally never cared for this song. Adam in full pseudo-punk wannabe Ashlee Simpson mode. fast forward. Simon: I may sound biased... but brilliant song choice... my point?... find a great artist... find a great song... brilliant performance... Adam, if you're not in the finals it's a big upset.

Danny picked a ballad. fast forward. Simon: love the song... call your performance a vocal master class.

Kris chose Heartless by Kanye West. song actually grew on me due to high rotation on a lot of the radio stations here. looked forward to hearing this song w/out auto-tune. Kris kicked ass. Simon: thought lame song choice for your 1st performance... I had written you out of this competition... that has all changed after this performance. Kris did kick ass. actually watched his performance 3x.

Adam chose Cryin' by Aerosmith. liked his cover version. Simon: I'm not gonna suck up like the other 3... it's easy to assume that you'll sail into the finals next week... this show's about finding a star... vote for Adam.

overall I liked both of Kris' performances best this week... and he's one of my initial final 4 picks from the start of the top 13.

bitch battle between Chloe and Janis... but they work well together to save America.

hostile bad ass wants morphine to kill pain in his stabbed neck. Jack: gimme info... you'll get morphine. hostile claims to not know a thing. Jack puts pressure on hostile's neck. hostile cooperates. love it when Jack does that.

hostile calls Tony... techies locate Tony. Jack's in pursuit... he rams his vehicle into Tony's. Tony's captured. federales basically saved DC from being exposed to pathogen.

group has back up plan to free Tony. either free Tony or Jack's hottie daughter Kim's gonna die. as I've written each week... would love to be an extra on 24. Jack has security watching over Kim until she boards her plane. security dude got choked to death in the bathroom.

and what's up w/ hottie Olivia? basically she's frelled. chief of staff's room has recording device of whatever's said in room. device biometrically turned on and off by her nemesis Kanin.

Caprica

current song: Intuition by Jewel

love opening scene. reminds me of Omen by Prodigy.

Zoe Graystone's a teen computer genius like her dad Daniel. she and her friend plan to leave their homeworld... start a new life on Gemenon. her friend's a terrorist... blows up train... lots of people killed.

teens have devices called holobands... allows them to live in virtual worlds. Zoe created an avatar of herself. her avatar lives on in the virtual world. her dad works on robots... has robot body functioning... but not properly w/out robotic brain.

Daniel basically wants to upload Zoe's avatar into a robot. bug eyed at end.

hmmm... just watch the movie. now... I need to wait several months until Caprica premieres.

UCLA - NCAA Women's Water Polo Champions

current song: Dirty Funk by Steve Appleton

congrats to UCLA for winning its 5th title in a row... and 104th NCAA championship. so far this athletic season the Pac-10 has won 7 national titles... w/ 3 coming from aquatic sports. in addition to UCLA in women's water polo... USC won in men's water polo and Cal won in women's swimming & diving. the conference can possibly win a 4th aquatic championship when women's rowing contested later this season.

the Pac-10 owns women's water polo... winning all the titles since the NCAA officially sponsored the sport. UCLA upset conference foe USC 5-4.

disastrous week for USC athletics. USC men's vball lost in 5 sets in the title game. in NCAA women's tennis... Washington upset Pac-10 regular season champion USC 4-3 in the 2nd round.

NCAA titles currently contested in several sports w/ several Pac-10 teams in the post season. men's and women's tennis... men's and women's golf. softball title not guaranteed as in the past. tough competition from the sec.

UC Irvine: NCAA Men's Volleyball Champions

current song: Omen by Prodigy

congrats to UC Irvine for bringing back a vball title back to the west coast... where it belongs. post labeled MPSF vball because both teams play in the same conference. UCI battled league foe USC for the title. cheered for USC. Pac-10 has not held any vball title for several seasons.

in the MPSF tournament USC upset... and swept top ranked UCI in a semi-final match. I thought USC would win the national title in 4 sets. coaching battle. down 2 sets to 1... UCI coach put in vball stud middle blocker Simmons in the 4th set. he basically changed the match. catalyst for UCI's come from behind victory. would have been an amazing late season run had USC won.

USC's Murphy Troy = uber-vball stud. watched him and the Trojans play against UH a few weeks ago. he's big... he's bad... he's burly. he can kill anywhere on the court w/ authoritay. USC hitter Tony Ciarelli couldn't focus on his game. UCI hecklers did a great job distracting him.

only several months before Pac-10 women's vball begins.

America's Next Top Model 12 - Bird's Nest Soup

current song: Magnificent by U2

Aminat's not keepin' it cute n mute. she's like: ugh... I have to deal w/ Celia another week... she's soooo annoying.

model wannabes meet Paulina... learn to samba. girls learn basic steps. Paulina comments: Celia, you look old... Allison, you look terrified... Teyona, you don't look graceful. Aminat's not keepin' it cute n mute. she's like: Teyona's not sexy... she's not sultry. Paulina tells the girls to 'practice practice practice'.

samba challenge... create illusion of havin' a good time. Celia's relaxed. she wrote 'relax' on one of her wrists to remind her to relax. Paulina comments: Allsion, you looked pathetic... Celia, you went for it... Aminat, you faked it well... Teyona, not your best moment. Celia declared winner. prize = Ara Vartanian jewelry worth over $7,000. Paulina: you get to share it w/ a friend. Celia: I choose Allison. Allison: hooray!!! Paulina's stunned... surprised Celia didn't pick Aminat for coming in a close second. Aminat: Paulina looked disappointed... but she doesn't know the dichotomy of the house. Celia and Allison pick up their kick ass prize. Celia chose onyx earrings. Allsion chose a turquoise pendant... matches her eyes.

contestants travel/sight see 2 hours into the jungle. they're transformed into exotic birds. Tyra's this week's photographer. Allison's an owl. what a hoot! boooo! hisss! she's kickin' ass. Tyra and Jay are praisin' her... boostin' her ego and confidence. Allison: Tyra, you're really pretty. off camera Allsion feels like such a nerd for saying that. I liked Allsion's photo best. pic from cwtv.com.

at panel, Tyra: I'll announce which one's not staying in the nest. boooo! hisss!

Allison's called 1st. Teyona's 2nd. surprised Celia's eliminated. this past week she outperformed Aminat... winning the challenge... and also doing better at the photo shoot. Tyra explains: Celia, the judges see a gorgeous face... but too mature... and fashion's obsessed w/ youth. gimme a break. every 3rd cycle a black girl wins.

American Idol 8 - Rock

current song: 1-2-3 by Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine on KSSK 92.3 FM

single released in 1988. UK #1 21 cycles ago... Theme From S'Express by S'Express.

Adam Lambert Wentz... painful to watch him bring out his inner Ashlee Simpson... tryin' to get his punk/rock on. turned away... listened to him sing. loved it. Simon: 1 criticism... performance underrated... I'm teasin'... could've been a disaster... but it's your best performance... nobody tonight will be able to top that.

Allison Iraheta... not bad. Simon: difference from when I 1st saw you 8 weeks ago staggering... composure... confidence... terrific vocals... but sounded like the original... I would have chosen the Queen song. Allison speaks up for herself... fights back. turn off. Allison's #2... innocently (perhaps not) flashes the backward V sign. funny.

Kris Allen and Danny Gokey do a duet. huh? they've been singin' too much ballads that they can't sing a rock song on their own? bascially Danny outsang Kris. Simon: who's better?... Danny, you were better than Kris.

Kris' solo performance ok. Nazi red lighting would have mesmerized me... instead he had GDR blue. still like the fact that he sings like a regular dude. Simon: didn't like it... like eating ice for lunch... nothing to remember... boring... it was a jam... at the beginning I said that no one would top Adam... I was right.

Danny sounded off from the beginning. genre doesn't match him... sounded like screaming. painful. Simon: last note's like from a horror movie... sound's like Friday the 13th... scream little over the top... for Adam it works... for you it didn't... still think you're safe.

Adam and Allison's duet best. I wondered how producers decided to divide the 4 contestants. I'm like: ooooh... boys vs girls. girls looked like they had a good time... huggin' in the end. Simon: in battle of duets, you win... completely different... Adam, you may have given her a chance to stay in this competition.

Adam's solo and duet performances faves of the night.

Tony... who's deep deep deep undercover... and his group proceed w/ their plans. they use the Muslim dude's younger bro as leverage.

Amazing Race 14 - Beijing, China

current song: Something Is Squeezing My Skull by Morrissey

teams continue to race. Jen's cryin' in the cab cuz she believes she and her sister's eliminated. Phil: you're still racing. Kisha: shut the frell up. teams make their way to a street... search among the shops for a Travelocity gnome.

teams find their gnomes... proceed to an area where they pick up a bicycle... ride past the Forbidden City. pic from wikipedia.org. Tammy & Victor amazed at the Chinese military goosesteppin' all over the place. Kisha & Jen runnin' to get their bikes. Luke, already on his bike... almost runs over them.

detour... Beijing opera or Chinese waiter. in Beijing opera teams go to an opera house... dress each other up in full costume (like the male and female models next to them)... go on stage... bow to some dude, who will give them their next clue. in Chinese waiter teams go to a restaurant... take orders from Mandarin speaking customers... repeat order to chef. if correct chef will prepare meal and then give next clue.

Tammy & Victor choose Chinese waiter. Tammy: if we can't do this task... mom and dad will kill us. Victor: it'd be very shameful. food ordered... fish, noodles, fried chicken, beef, and spare ribs. mmmmm! all other teams chose Beijing opera. Kisha: Jen, you be the gentleman... I've never been a princess in my whole life... here's my chance. Kisha ends up lookin' like one of the Mai T(h)ai trannies. Luke makes his mom look tranny as well. Margie: I look like a drag queen.

Tammy & Victor finish relatively quickly. u-turn ahead. Tammy: we can't beat Kisha & Jen in a foot race to the finish. they write an apology. Kisha & Jen disgusted by their u-turn. they're off to the restaurant... they have a hard time. they're like: we're black... we're not Chinese.

for the roadblock teams go to a street market where 1 team member must eat 4 fried Chinese delicacies... grasshopper, larva, scorpion and starfish. Victor kicks ass. he and his sister arrive 1st at the pit stop... the Bird's Nest. pic from wikipedia.org. they win a trip to the Galapagos Islands. awesome. Margie & Luke finish 2nd.

Kisha & Jen at the street vendor before NFL cheerleaders. Jen's eating bits and pieces... drinkin' lots of water to digest. she finishes... they get a cab. Jaime & Cara last to complete roadblock. Jen drank so much water that she had to pee like a mofo. bathroom break costly. she should have just pissed while running to the pit stop. Jaime & Cara arrived a few seconds before them.

for the finale the Race ends in my home state. the 3 remaining teams I liked from the 1st ep. Margie & Luke lived in Hawaii. perhaps this will give them an advantage. I do want Tammy & Victor to win. one time for the Asians!

contestants happy Natalie gone... they're hatin' on her. Teyona: good she got sent home... she wasn't that great.

go-see challenge. Sao Paulo looks huge. awesome urban sprawl. Aminat: traffic ri-dunk-ulous... worse than NY and LA combined. Celia's strategy... visit designers farthest away from HQ... work her way back. does she arrive back in time? nope... DQed. Fo's DQed too for being late. doesn't matter anyway... none of the designers would book her. ouch. the other girls take helicopter ride over awesome city to meet w/ judges who announce Teyona as challenge winner. she wins clothes from the various designers. now she can wear stylish outfits to judging. in past cycles... did the go-see challenge winner win that cycle?

back at their hotel Teyona shows off her winnings. she's like: don't touch anything... I want them all. Fo's cryin': I want to win this competition soooo bad. Celia: Teyona's my greatest competition.

Nigel Barker photographer for this week's shoot. I like Allison's photo best. pic from cwtv.com. girls pose in swimsuits while standing out in a crowded beach. bikini bottom basically Doritos sized triangle... enough fabric to cover the girls' va-jay-jays. bikini tops also Doritos sized... enough fabric to cover the girls' personalities.

at panel judges in awe of Teyona's outfit... as well as her photo. Tyra tells Fo that she didn't book any designers. guest judge... a designer and former model says that Fo's 'too short'. Fo mentions that she's 5'8". from what I know about next cycle all the contestants will have to be at that maximum height. bug eyed. I love midgets... hopefully there will be one next cycle. doubt it. so if Fo couldn't get any jobs... how will the girls do next cycle?

Tyra: we'll deliberate... we'll find out which one of you is sunburned. boooo! hisss!

Teyona's called 1st. Celia and Fo in bottom 2. Fo's eliminated. Tyra explains that Fo has to learn how to use her angles... make herself look taller in photos. next cycle should be interesting.

in April... an improvement of 7 dranks. 2nd consecutive month cardio kicked Coke's ass. decrease by 7% the number of calories I need to burn off to earn a drank from 368 to 342 calories. for running and swimming I need to run/swim 34 minutes (even solar day) / 35 minutes (odd solar day) to earn a drank.

exercise blitzkrieg... exercise onslaught... until cardio victory. victory... or at least cardio lead... possible by July. Spartakiad 5 challenges helpful... especially my -athlons.
