    Delilah and $250,000

    Just caught up on what I missed last night - what a clever girl to realize she had been evicted. I like the Bradleys. And I like the idea of contributing to the animal shelter: nobody voted Delilah out, if you could vote to save her, the animal shelter would get the quarter million for sure.

    Delilah and $250,000

    She would be a shoe-in. So sorry Sam left, for her sake. But where was she tonight?

    Michael's feeling toward Estelle?

    Michael is strategic, but I am not sure if he is totally in control of this. Estelle has definitely been flirting with him and Sam since Monday last - after pretty much ignoring them up until now. Sam takes the attention very easy, but he is probably well used to girls flirting with him, and...

    wonder how Angie will feel about Michael now

    How much love did she really have for Michael in the first place? She might be a little hurt, but she can be rather good at figuring things out for herself (I really loved Angie's inquisitiveness, and her relentlessness when problem-solving. She figured out the bathroom door without anyone...

    Oops. Too early to declare victory. This morning I heard that Labor was forming government in ACT with support of Greens.

    Sam's tighty whities

    You want someone else to examine Michael's crack while you make sure Sam's undies stay just where they ought to be?

    Estelle's "hard life"

    Sorry, I was using sexual abuse as an example of the sort of thing that Estelle might not choose to share with Micheal and all Australia, which might result in having a hard life and spending time on the streets in spite of being brought up with all the trappings of material wealth. Maybe her...

    Meow Meow and Estelle

    Samuel Taylor Coleridge is not a great example: he was in poverty, partly due to being out of it on opium, had a disastrous marriage, again at least partly due to opium, and a life crippled by depression, anxiety, opium delusions and failed attempts to quit opium. If you have read 'Confessions'...

    Meow Meow and Estelle

    Not true. If you look at the use of Opium from 1800 to 1850 (totally legal and available all that time) - in 1800, there was already plenty of anecdotal evidence and a general knowledge that opium lead to early preventable death, although many thought it was deliberate death - especially...

    Meow Meow and Estelle

    Heroin is strongly associated with sudden, gruesome, preventable death. It is also extremely addictive, with addicts spending thousands of dollars per day and willing to risk their own and other people's well being to get on. Heroin distribution networks have some of the most predatory and...

    Would Ben have done the same for Estelle?

    Actually, we know that she was suspicious enough to hold one of her two 'listen in' privileges to the bitter end in order to hear if Ben's relentless backstabbing of her extended to his nominations (it had on other weeks but not on that one) . Michael has voted for Estelle six times and...

    Would Ben have done the same for Estelle?

    No way would Ben do that for Estelle. But that was before Estelle did him the favour. And Ben doesn't have to. Except for Sam, nobody has Ben on their radar. Thanks to Ben, everyone has Estelle on their radar. Big Brother is sly - the moral dilemma is not Estelle's, it is Ben's. Does he...

    Estelle's "hard life"

    Well, apart from what Estelle has said on the Lil' sis and Confidential shows, and her explaining in the reveal of her 'secret' that she dropped out of school, and doesn't recommend it, I really have not heard her talking about her hard life. The people I have heard talk about her hard life...

    Sam is much smarter

    Poor Angie. She was a staunch member of the cool group - until the week before the fight with Layla (which I think was really a consequence of Lalya seeing the group was no longer protecting her friend, and Ben getting into Layla's head the idea that she would be seen as a bitch because she...

    Michael's KREW... respect women highly

    Re the Krispy Kreme badge: Michael cracks me up that way - he regards most forms of exercise as the solace of stupidity, unlike his declared and self-evident love of Sponser-Fried chicken, but keeps making comments about how fat he is, and how unattractive that is. If Layla was as consistently...

    Last movie you saw

    The movie is all style over substance, and pre-Thacher, pre-punk. Anthony Burgess (the guy that wrote the novel) was an incredibly prolific writer, and a composer, an a savant - a bigger know-it-all than Clive James and Stephen Fry rolled into one. Clockwork Orange is imaginative and original...

    Last movie you saw

    Love Breaking Bad and talking about Mad Men, On The Road (the movie I saw tonight) had Peggy Olsen (or rather, the actress that plays her, Elisabeth Moss) as Galatea Dunkle, a small but powerful role. I went into the movie knowing that it had been canned at Cannes, and had three strikes against...

    Delilah's Future

    Unlike many of her housemates, Delilah can look forward to a bright future. She has a great temperament, very easy going, and participates in all the adventures going on in the house. After poor little Ollie, I was not sure a dog in the house was a good idea, especially not a Kelpie (they like...

    2012 US Presidential Election

    "Who believe they are entitled to health care" Oh, America! Sales taxes are state taxes in the US, so they don't count. (although it is not unconstitutional to impose a federal sales tax, and they do have federal excise taxes) Thanks to sales taxes, bottom 20% pay a higher proportion of their...
