Friday stuff

Are we supposed to boycott nike because they make their shoes in Asia? I have no clue, but this commercial is spectacular – from the point of view of a rookie player…. (directed by Guy Ritchie I think)

Cavendish Microwave Fries sort of scare me. You put these fries in the microwave, nuke ’em for 5 minutes and they come out all golden and crispy. Crispy. From a microwave. That is so very very unnatural. I can’t help but wonder just how incredibly many chemicals are added to the potatos to achieve that golden crispiness. Like I said, scary.

Spoiler alert:

I don’t usually discuss the TV shows I watch here, because, basically, who cares. But last night’s Survivor episode was a classic.

In probably the most ridiculously stupid move ever, Eric (a fan of the show since it’s inception who knows everything about every player, ever) gave up immunity in order to “redeem” himself because he had lied. Lied. In Survivor… Well duh.

He gave it away to someone else and was promptly voted out, while believing he was safe because they had told him he was. He trusted the others. You’re playing for $1,000,000, there are five people left and you’re the biggest physical threat. Hello! How utterly mindbobgglingly idiotic. He deserved to go.

The rabid fan will go down as the most moronically stupid player ever…

(And yes, this is very repetititve, but there are only so many words for stupid.)

    I thought it was stupid from the point you admitted to watching reality tv.

    Fuball – We all have our failings, but other than Survivor, I’m perfect.

    I’ve not seen Survivor or 24 or many other TV programmes – not because I don’t want to but because I can’t over here in France (without buying hugely expensive satelites etc). I did see The Riches recently, though, which I liked.

  4. Great post, funny about those crispy fries?!Sandra Evertson

  5. I was shocked. SHOCKED. “You guys drive me crazy!” he said. What a sweetheart, but oh, brother.I used to get microwave fries that came individually bedded in a little foil-lined honeycomb. Yummy. Then I realized I was paying something like $19. a pound for potatoes.

    My favorite part was when James said, “YES! I have lost my reign as stupidest player ever!”So now there will be 4 guys on the jury that have been bamboozled at some time at tribal council. I wonder how that will play in when it comes to voting?This has really been one of the best seasons ever! I can’t wait until Sunday! Except that it will be over and my Thursday nights will be a little dull.

    I usually have wathched SURVIVOR but somehow never even tuned in to this latest one. Sounds like I missed some classic stuff.The commercial has such fine field footage (me loves me alliteration!), but why, oh, why, did he have to include the couple of gratuitous frames of “hot chicks”?

  8. Jazz says:

    Dumdad – I heard that was good, but I’ve neve seen it myself.Sandra – Welcome to my blog. I’m a great fan of your work. Seeing your name there just blew me away.Joe – $19 a pound for potatos. Wow. I wonder how much those crispy fries come to.Geewits – I love James.Jocelyn – You missed the best season ever. As for the bimbos, well, rookie player, male director, bimbos a must?
