As Colin now points out, there are hours to go before anything's happening, so Mirna doesn't necessarily have to talk to the guy at the same time that Colin is having this conversation with him. It's not that I think butting in was that big of a deal, especially compared to the rest of the annoyances Mirna brings to the table. It's more that she's so smug and unaware of how she comes across. I also strongly suspect her of being the kind of lawyer who throws in an unnecessary "hereinafter" now and then so you don't forget you are speaking to a real live lawyer. You know, the type who has to write parenthetical numerals. "There were four (4) individuals present." Like we don't know what "four" is without extra help. I hate those people. But anyway, Colin starts to tell Mirna in frustration to "go stand over there," but then he corrects and says that actually, she can stand right where she is, but he'd like to finish his conversation. "I'm going to stay right here; you can do whatever the hell you want to do," she smirks. She is, of course, also one of those women who loves to pretend she's tough because she says tough-girl things like "whatever the hell you want," when in fact, she's just pushy and obnoxious, which is quite a different matter from "tough." ["And who can't distinguish the difference between 'genuinely intimidated by her' and 'rendered incapable of speech by her interpersonal tone-deafness,' since the end result is the same." -- Sars] And by the way, does God like it when you say "hell" like that?
Anyway, Colin interviews that Mirna "might possibly be the rudest person [he's] ever met in [his] life," and he wants nothing to do with her. That certainly does seem to be an emerging popular viewpoint, doesn't it? I know it's popular in my house. Among...me.
5:04 AM. Twinkies. They announce that they're getting $241 for the leg, and one of them explains in a voice-over as they leave that racing with your twin is hard, because you have the same strengths and weaknesses, and no one to "balance out" those qualities. Ah, yes. It's the notorious "any flag you can miss, I can miss blinder" problem.
5:15 AM. Linda and Karen. You'll be shocked to know that they're all squeaky about going to Russia. One or the other of them voices over that they would rather be somewhere between first and third, because she doesn't like the feeling that they're "playing catch-up every single time." Or else it's that they "play in ketchup every single time." It's probably the first one. I don't really see that brand of kink in them.
