Nomination day. Everyone is somber. Lisa feels naked. All right, all right, all you Lisa oglers can relax -- she's not literally naked. Danielle discusses how deeply she loves everyone. Whatever, Countdown Queen. The nomination ritual is as boring as ever, but it's mercifully short -- only Jason gets a key, so Lisa and Amy are up. The only things notable about Danielle's speech are that she is casually unkind to Amy, hammering yet again on the fact that Amy was gone for two weeks, like, SHUT UP about that already, and also mentioning that Amy is, of course, nominated again so as not to "break tradition." Amy, being the good sport she's turned into, laughs at a joke at her own expense -- just as she always does. Danielle encourages Lisa and Amy to use their feminine wiles on Jason this week as he decides who to boot. I am so tired of Danielle. At this point, any outcome is all right with me except Danielle winning, which would completely horrify me.
Wednesday. Previously, Danielle was unbelievably irritating.
Blue-and-white nominations. I think this nomination rehash music with the little percussive triplet bell ("dinkdinkdinkdink... dinkdinkdinkdink") is my favorite of the regular music selections. I definitely prefer it to the sexually aggressive Theme From HoH Nomination Preparations, and to the somber Post-Eviction Swells Of Pain For Strings. Back in color, Danielle asks Amy whether she liked the speech, and Amy tells her she did. Lisa DRs that she thinks she'll be in the final two. Jason, in turn, DRs that it might be smart to keep Amy, because the evictees wouldn't be likely to let her take home the money, which I think is true. I think that had Jason kept Amy, he would have guaranteed that either he or Danielle would have won the money, which is why I really don't understand what he did this week at all. But anyway, I'm getting ahead of myself. Amy says again in the DR that Jason works alone, and doesn't have alliances. Oh, dear.
The houseguests stare at the memory wall and all the black-and-white pictures. Lisa talks about how much she misses Eric, blah dee blah. Danielle talks again in that horrible Deadly Serious DR session about how she now has "feelings," because "these people are [her] friends." Yeah. And it's nice, the way you talk about them when they're not around. Once again, I will point out that in my opinion, "friends" is in what you do, not what you say. I'd be interested to know how many of the other people she considers her "friends" think of her as their "friend."
