Nomination time. Ritual blah blah. Keys blee blee. This week's unlucky slobs are It'sOnica and Krusta. Nicole sniffles and tells them that she didn't want to do this, at this point in the game, and that she'd "just as soon cut off her own foot" than nominate anyone, sob, sniffle, snort. It'sOnica and Krusta take the news pretty well, considering that they're both on the edge of total mental breakdowns and probably prone to violence. But It'sOnica does snicker during Nicole's "I'd rather cut off my own foot" speech, and her laughing scares me. Krusta calmly tells Nicole that she knows how hard it is to be HoH, and that she doesn't hold her nomination against Nicole. She's really quite nice about it. Bunky pats her. Next, It'sOnica says a whole bunch of nonsensical crap. "You got dogged out, totally wrong, happened that people bonded with you, Chill Town cheesesteak Jabberwocky camembert. It is going to be milquetoast football peninsula ceramics on!" Then she walks away from the table. Nicole sort of shakes her head.
"[It'sOnica] is not doing herself any favors by saying things that are kind of hard to understand. She just speaks in riddles," Hardly says. North America nods, and cracks open a communal Dr Pepper in Krusta's honor.
Nicole tells the camera that if It'sOnica gets HoH next, Nicole's toast.
Krusta sighs, and tells the camera that she just wants to make the best of the situation in which she's found herself. It's so hard for me to maintain the hate from week to week; now, I just feel sort of sorry for her. This week, the hate is all directed at It'sOnica, and I can really only maintain a high level of loathing for one person at a time.
In the Diary Room, It'sOnica says it will "get hot," which I assume is a variation on "it's on."
Tuesday. This episode is so full of filler. Sadly, it's not the shit-kicking it's-on-athon for which I hoped.
We open with It'sOnica and Krusta smoking on the patio: "I'm a bad bitch," says It'sOnica. "You understand that? I knew that coming in and I know it leaving. A threat, baby." Krusta exhales.
Hardly says that for It'sOnica to "say she wasn't given a fair shot is ludicrous." Have you noticed that the old Hardly seems to be making a minor but welcome comeback? Seeing him realize that Krusta isn't the end-all be-all has started redeeming him in my eyes. (Not enough for me to go back to calling him Hardy, or anything.)
