March 9 07

so, just this week i devoted an entire post to telling you just how unlucky i am. i never win anything. i can’t even roll up the rim and win at Tim Hortons. i can’t even win a stinkin’ coffee.

(note: not my fingers. i do not wear thumb rings. as if.)

BUT…i won! i won! i won! i won! i won! i won something!

on Wednesday night i went to this all-women’s charity dinner. I wasn’t planning to go, but a few of my friends were on the planning committee, and i didn’t want to let them down. And the dinner itself seemed like something i would enjoy. They brought in Chef Jeff Nathan who is the chef at Abigael’s in NYC to do a cooking demonstration. I love me some Foodtv, so this was right up my alley.

also…a night of not having to give the kids dinner and do their homework with them and put them to bed sounded like heaven to me.

you’re waiting to hear what i won, aren’t you??? Well, i won $100 to a resaurant and $500 to Mirvish, which means that even though i paid $100 to be there, i walked away with $600 in prizes.

Take that, Timmy’s. i don’t need your stinkin’ free coffee (actually, i really, really do. so forget what i said. pretty please!)

note to Jeff Probst. i hate you. This season of Survivor sucks. so bad. it’s hard for me to even watch it. that is all. You can’t learn from Ryan Seacrest who brings Borat on the show? seriously…if you dropped Borat in for a visit to Fiji, i promise i’ll sit through the rest of the season.

American Idol

i can’t say i’m sorry to see Jared or Antonella go. i’m sure it won’t be the last we see of her…i’m sure there’s lots more washing the floors in her underwear Antoiletta Antonella to be seen.

Haley should have been gone over Sabrina. maybe the fans didn’t like her 1984 hair? and did anyone catch her psycho scary pissed-as-hell face when she got the boot? creep factor was WAY high right there.

Sanjaya IS Kevin Covias AS John Stevens IN “Wtf: A Musical.” hahahahaha!

this is the most uninspiring top 12. ever. i forecast a Melinda Doolittle vs. Lekisha smackdown final 2.

  1. It’s not the idea of the thumbrings…(I wear ’em) It’s the content of those particular thumbrings that gets me.. Glad its not you.

  2. Ha, when I read the title I thought you were going to talk about the Newbery Award winner and the “scrotum” issue. Congratulations. What show are you going to take in?

    Re: Survivor… I don’t think it’s Probst so much as this Ravu tribe is so pathetic… they are like Ulong, only without any hope.

  3. RE: Survivor, yeah, it is like grinding the poor Ravu tribe into dust… I was hoping that choosing to keep luxury and voting off a number would come back to bite the Mutu tribe in the ass. Looks like a shakeup next week.

    RE: AI – though I’d love to see a Lakisha – Melinda smackdown, I think it is a low probability, they pull from the same voting pool, and so their vote gets split as time wears on, one will probably go around the top 5 or 6. One will definately make the final, probably against either Blake or Chris S.

  4. Way to go, great prize!

  5. Wow! When you break out of a “no prizes here” slump, you really do it good! Congrats!

    Also, I was so excited slut-tonella got voted off. I may or may not have been yelling, “Take that you dirty…” or something about what other industry she should try instead.
    I can now really watch it again. 🙂 lol

  6. Survivor is so (ahem) good this time that I forgot to pvr it. Glad it was lame.

    Mmmmm…as far as coffee: I’ve won 3 coffees, a donut and a muffin! Yay!

  7. congrats. 🙂

  8. Last night’s ‘Idol’ was a disappointment to say the least. While it was good that “Antoiletta” got out, I still don’t think that Sabrina should be out. AND SANJAYA NEEDS TO JUST GET OUT OF THE COMPETITION.

  9. i’m glad someone else noticed the creepy sabrina voodoo stare. i had trouble getting to sleep that night because of it. *shudder*

    Comment by lara on March 9, 2007
  10. Sabrina got voted off because, despite her talent, she’s just not nice to look at.
    Oh boy! At least one more week of Sanjaya! And that is why tv remotes have mute buttons.

    Comment by Rebecca on March 9, 2007
  11. Wow…must be a week for bloggers. Hurley and I spontaneously went out to eat at a sports bar kind of place Monday and found ourselves in the middle of a trivia contest. And we won!!! A $25 gift certificate for the restaurant…but the bragging rights were so much more satisfying.

    Comment by Di on March 9, 2007
  12. I figured Haley would be gone over Sabrina, but I think Haley has the likability factor that Sabrina just does NOT.

    And Sanjaya should be the first to go. I suspect guys will be eliminated in at least the first 3 weeks.

    And I am 1 for 12 in the Rolllll up the Rim. I won a coffee. Woo for me. 🙂 Still waiting on the iPod!

  13. Oh…and the big excitement from American Idol was that Gina was wearing a top that my friend carries in her boutique…she said the next day everyone who came in noticed it!

    Comment by Di on March 9, 2007
  14. I thought you were going to tell me you won one of the Mega Millions!! But the prize does sound pretty sweet. I have to tell you, I’m a total Apprentice Fan, and I don’t like what Jeff has done to that show either.

  15. congrats on your winnings wowsa

    Comment by Anne on March 9, 2007
  16. I’m with you on ALL of this. Survivor is cruel this year!! As far as AI goes, you’re right about the final two. I just hope that Chris Sligh is in the final four. I don’t know why but I really like him. He and Blake are the only guys I like. Sanjaya MUST go. NOW!

    Comment by Kristi on March 9, 2007
  17. Yeah, I agree…Haley shoulda gone way before Sabrina…but oh well. Antonella is gone, and I am happy. Jared creeped me out too..his eyebrows gave me nightmares & his dancing reminded me of Carlton on Fresh Prince.

    Awesome on the $600 worth of prizes! That makes up for never winning anything ever…almost.

    Comment by Anna on March 9, 2007
  18. I am so bummed about Survivor being flat this season. It’s been loosing it’s fizz for a while but come on! Maybe Jeff should start taking his shirt off for ratings. Yum.

    Comment by MommaK on March 9, 2007
  19. Congrats on your big winnings! Awesome.

    Comment by Jodi on March 9, 2007
  20. CONGRATS!!! I’m jealous!
    I have lost interest in Survivor the past few seasons…I don’t know why exactly?
    As for AI – I agree with you. Sanjaya is so weird and sucks I think. There must be some 12 year old girls voting for him? It will be a bitch-slap ending with Lakisha & Melinda duking it out.

    Comment by Fenicle on March 10, 2007
  21. I think the only reason Sanjaya is still in the competition is because there are SO many Indians in the US – so he gets all their votes. Way to go slurpee boy!

    Comment by Pnina on March 10, 2007
  22. Holy cow, congratulations! That is so exciting :^) Also wanted to say thank you for nominating me for a ROLF – You made me giggle like a school girl all morning. And thanks for taking my horribly embarrassing confession and making it something I was actually please about. Yay Ali!

    Comment by anne nahm on March 11, 2007
  23. Wow!!!! Congrats, Ali!!! You don’t DRINK Tim Horton’s coffee, anyway, now, do you! Helloooo? Starbucks!!

    Comment by haley-o on March 11, 2007
  24. I think you are right about the 1984 hair. Girl is beautiful, but that hair was distracting. Anyway, I kind of like the blond spikey guy from Seattle.. but then again, the last time I actually picked the winner was Kelly Clarkson 🙂

    Comment by Jamie on March 11, 2007
  25. Congrats on the win!! Nice 🙂

    And I so agree with you on both Survivor and the unspiring AI top 12. Snore.

    Comment by Sandra on March 11, 2007
  26. I never win anything either! Not even a coffee from Tim Hortens!

    And I am with you on the Survivor thing. What a crappy season. I can’t even watch it anymore.

    Comment by Green Eyed Girl on March 12, 2007
  27. Congrats–that’s awesome!
    The only thing I have ever really won (big win) was the 1st prize in a Homecoming draw in my first year of University. It couldn’t have come at a better time when I was feeling homesick!
