~~if Jonathan (who sounds REALLY way too much like Alan Alda. seriously. next time he speaks. close your eyes. you’ll die) had picked Nate first, he still would have been able to take Yul, since the other team couldn’t have, and he would have ended up with  a stronger tribe. just sayin’

~~do you think they split up the tribes this early because Mark Burnett’s little social experiment failed miserably….or do you think this was their dumbass plan from the start (“ooh…let’s revolutionize the game. for two. whole. weeks.”

~~also, is Jeff mispronouncing her name, or did her thoughtless parents actually name her “poverty”? “ooh…look at all that meat. i bet you could eat the whole thing yourself…” wow. that was all kinds of high school. seriously, we had to rewind this. several times.)

~~cao boi was just annoying. now he’s eating baby birds. that’s just not right.

~~Ozzy bugs with his whole…oooh…cecilia…you’re breakin’ my heart….you didn’t make an effort to get to know me…boo hoo…he’s such a woman…whoever compared the dude to bobby jon must have been drinking heavily. oh, how i miss me some bobby jon.

~~well, Candace clears things up for us. since we were all worried.

~~JP. gay or not gay? discuss.

i have a confession to make. (many of you will NOT find this new information). i love pharmacies. i love products in nice packaging. i love new! and improved! shampoos and conditioners and toothbrushes and toothpastes and razors and deoderants and don’t even get me started on the baby aisles (sippy cups and bottles and diapers! oh my!)

i am also a sucker for a bargain. 2-for-1! double shoppers points! 2 for $5. 50% off. loves it. so, when new and exciting products go on sale, i’m on them like white on rice.

so…let’s just say that a new product came out. in several dozen new colors and scents and pretty bottles. and. they. were. on. sale. anyone want to take a stab at how many i bought? well…i’m fairly certain that i bought one in every color. so now my shower and my cabinets look a little like Jennster‘s. dangerously straight! (i wear my hair straight!) body envy! (everyone’s hair needs body!) color me happy! (i color my hair!). naturally, i needed one of each.

this morning i opened up the blue bottle to try something new. it wasn’t until after i shampoo’ed up that i took a look at the package to see what kind of glorious hair i’d be having today. was it voluminous? was it super healthy? super straight? alas. i was mistaken. it was hello hydration.

and then the panic set in.

seriously. a girl wants straight hair. no flyaways. healthy hair. lots of volume. great curls. we do not want GREASE. who wants to ADD more oil to their hair? (clearly someone with super dry hair. read=not me) I have great hair (don’t look now, but i just mentioned something i like about myself. it doesn’t happen often. let’s cherish this moment, shall we?), and i don’t need to be adding moisture to it.

but, alas, this ends in good news. my hair, after a super panicked blow dry, looks the same. it looks the same as it always does. it looks how it does when i use the straight hair shampoo. or the volume shampoo. or the colored-hair shampoo. it looks the same. (herbal essences sure is a clever company, isn’t it?)

but this morning it smells all nice and coconut-y. mmm….


this is just because she’s cute. and bald. and she doesn’t need to worry about things like shampoo.

  1. Ali, Isabella look gorgeous (and well, she is starting to get some hair) and I think she looks like her big brother.

    Don’t get me started on bloody hair (see my blog…).

  2. I think the integration of the tribes was probably planned. They did the same thing last season after like a week of being divided by gender and age.

    I have used the coconut smelled hydration one and the tangerine one– maybe for anti-frizzies? I don’t remember. I love new things, too, I couldn’t resist. I even bought some sort of glitter spray. I’m WAY too old for glitter spray.

    And she is super cute!

  4. Aww, your baby is incredibly cute!

    Thanks for stopping by my site earlier :)

    7th Heaven got cancelled in May of this year, and I am not sure why they brought it back. Mary and Matt have been gone, then Simon went to college, now Ruthie has gone to Scotland (though I missed the why of that one), and you don’t see Simon anymore.

    Love your blog! I’ll be back to visit soon, and I think I’ll go check out Fabulous…I’m always looking for great new blogs to read. Hope you’ll come visit me again soon!

  5. Oh, and you’re lucky…..I have to use anti-dandruff shampoo or else.


    Comment by Belle on September 29, 2006
  6. Your daughter is sooo adorable! And I’m surprised Cao boi is not off the show already. I’m Vietnamese and the guy is giving us VNamese a bad name, eating baby birds and all. DIS.GUS.TING! AND all those “hickies” he left on people’s foreheads. Wassup with that?!

    And Belle, I thought they did can “7th Heaven”, and now it’s back. I didn’t know what the deal was. I thought my mind was playing tricks on me. Thanks for letting us “inquiring minds” know.

  7. BTW, JP? Yeah, he’s definitely batting for the other team. That’s all I’m sayin’.


    Comment by Waya on September 29, 2006
  8. I totally think that JP is gay. The way he talks and his job (I think Fashion something)…says enough.

  9. you are one snarky mom. good for the kid! cao boi is a fave of mine just bec. he’s weird. i’ve eaten baby birds before — it would be my snack after school growing up in asia. don’t know if i’d try it now though. But i’d definitely balk at trying the pig guts entrails (seriously, they make that stuff out there).

  10. Oi, that picture is SPRECIOUS! And, herbal essences is da bomb. I actually learned that from you….And, world, Ali always smells so pretty! At work, you always know where she’s sitting because it’s the only area that doesn’t smell like B.O.! Right Al!!!

  12. Finally I can read your post! I came by yesterday, saw that there was Survivor analysis and clicked away quickly before I read any spoilers (I was waiting to watch it last night on tape).

    Isn’t there some kind of reality-TV law that says that the game has to be set in stone beforehand? (i.e. timing of the merge, which challenge occurs which week, etc.) I seem to remember reading that after one of the contestants tried to sue them after the first season, claiming that Burnett had tinkered with the results.

    So, yes, I think the changing up of the teams was planned from the get-go: as soon as the premise of the racially divided teams was announced, I figured it would stay that way for three weeks at the most. In some ways, I suspect Burnett might have let the teams go on longer based on how the first two episodes went. A lot of the players seemed to embrace the opportunity to “represent” their ethnic group, and there were no really explosive issues to worry about.

    I always thought it would be pronounced “Par-VAH-ti” but what do I know?

  13. I watched Survivor so I had to come back…

    Poverty. Hah! Yeah, she’s ridiculous. “Oooh, your pants are falling down.”


    I’m not going to like the whole baby bird thing.

    The Candace-Billy thing makes me sad… I feel sorry for him. Poor heavy metal guy.


    Comment by Sadie on October 1, 2006
  14. Pavarti…like havarti…but instead of pronouncing it like havarti…they say it like poverty. She’s annoying to. Sean and I are sick of her.
    JP gay? I was thinking Brad…he is a fashion director y’know!

    Oh ya…I NEED towels for my kids just like Bells’a!!! Where’d ya get it? I have monogrammed ones for them, but I love the letters on hers!
    Or did you make it? If you did – I need 2! And I’ll get one more in January.


    Comment by Christine on October 1, 2006
  15. Yeah, I wasn’t into the whole “new” Survivor theme right from the start! Why set the tribes up like that? Now, the whole game is all going to be about race. Survivor is a competition amongst individuals not race–what a way to set up the possibility of stereotyping and racial issues. As far as I am concerned, it doesn’t matter what your background is, the game is Survivor! The whole issue has just gotten under my skin this time around–I’m not happy!


    Comment by Amanda on October 1, 2006
  16. Isabella is adorable as ever!

    My husband said the same thing about Survivor…that their little experiment must not have gone over really well.

    I’m with you on Cao Boi….I liked him at first but then he just turned into a freak? And yeah…what was up with the baby bird? Oh my gosh!!
