I realized tonight that I had episodes of “The Amazing Race” on Tivo that went all the way back to October 30th, so it was time to clear them off! So now I’ve watched up to last week, but I am going to bed instead of watching tonight’s two hour episode. Hello? I don’t have a job – I can watch it during the day tomorrow!
I am not doing my usual full post about all the little details of each episode thanks to the fact that I’m writing this on the PC in Jason’s room instead of on a laptop in front of the TV. However, I do still have some thoughts to share:
:: Flo is a pain in the ass. Hello? Could she complain any more? Poor Zach. Why does he put up with it? And what’s up with his hair?
:: The Wonder Twins have grown on me. I hated them in the beginning – how can you like someone that every episode has “Twins/Models” under their name? But they are getting better and legitimately hanging in there.
:: I think Ken & Gerard are my favorite team. Of course, if you’ve watched TAR a lot, you know that this can change from one week to another.
:: Jill & John Vito are also growing on me. His name still bugs me though. I’m sorry, I just can’t deny it.
:: Teri & Ian. Oy. Ugh. Oy. She whines almost as much as Flo, and Ian is just a bastard. Could he be more mean? “Hump it, Teri! Hump it!” I think I would have volunteered to do the archery shot in Grindelwald and accidentally shot HIM if I was her.
:: Can I just say that I *LOVE* when they are in places that I have visited? Munich. Neuschwanstein. Fussen. Grindelwald. *sigh* Can we please go to Germany? Someone? Anyone? It’s the perfect time of the year for the Christmas Markets (Christkindlesmarkt in Nuernberg would work) and some gluhwein. Yum, yum! (Recipe below from another site.)
:: What about the 911 boys? Dude, can you believe what they did? I mean … really? Damn. (Yes, this sentence is intentionally cryptic so I don’t spoil it for anyone.)
More tomorrow – I have two more hours of TAR to watch, and I can’t wait!
