You know, while I'm taking a spin through the recaps, and in the interest of fairness, I thought it would be fun to end with a quick peek at some of the stupidest things I wrote this season. I think I owe it to the contestants, don't you?
"Men of the world, let me give you a short quiz that will help you determine whether shaving your head is a good idea. Question one: Are you Michael Jordan? Question two: Are you Ed Harris? If you answered 'no' to both of these questions, you should not shave your head, lest you bear an unfortunate and striking resemblance to Team Shower-Fresh Scent here.
Ah, the nickname that never took off. Why? Too long, I suspect. The entire point of the team nicknames is that writing "Momily" is faster than writing "Nancy and Emily," "Guido" is faster than writing "Joe and Bill," et cetera. The posters on the forums knew better than I did on this one -- "Frats" was better.
"At any rate, this is where Kevin makes his comment, much hyped on the previews, about how the two of them are the ugly Americans, and 'there's definitely the potential for an international incident.' Oh, okay -- I chortled."
Look at me, grudgingly admitting that Kevin and Drew might be funny. That they might be funny.
"Amie has to get through the turnstile, an act she not only has trouble completing with her pack on, but also has to have EXPLAINED to her. No, really. She has to be told how to go. Through a turnstile. And it's not a magic turnstile, or a turnstile that needs an electronic keycard, or a turnstile with glass shards sticking out of it. It's the same kind they have at every baseball game, amusement park, and subway station on the planet Earth."
While in New York for the TARcon, I was at this very subway station, heading for JFK. And I went through the turnstile, and I totally needed help. I didn't smack into the turnstile like she did, but that's only because I needed help before I even got that far. Amie, you have my sympathies and my apologies.
"I immediately suspect that Lenny and Karen are the Mohammed-from-San-Francisco of this show."
