Here we GO! Plus on time!!!

Delee said...

That's a first a moving pitstop

Tessa said...

I'm here. I'm just going to leave up my survivor avitar for the show.

Delee said...

I would hate to pay for a 2 hour cab ride here...

Laurie said...

I'm here. I was here an hour ago wondering where everyone was. Guess I was a little anxious for the race to start!

Delee said...

Good one Laurie HAHA

Tessa said...

I think I would choose child's play.

Tessa said...

Wasn't the previews of one of the teams breaking the giraffe?

Delee said...

For a lawyer he is pretty dumb Where's the clue!!!!

Tessa said...

Did they just yank out the dragon's tongue?

Sydney said...

oh I so don't like that couple -- the lawyer and his wife is it? You know the ones I mean. Where's the clue where's the clue? don't yell at me.

Them.

Sydney said...

OOps, forgot to say HI everyone. I have the two bros in the pool and I do like them but I really like the 2 globetrotters, the pink haired son and dad, and then two Globetrotters.

Also like the young couple who identified as Christian.

Delee said...

Think that is Lance and Keri

meb said...

If he's an attorney, he's stupid... they both are. Everyone else got it that the clue was the stamp????

meb said...

I have the older couple. She's excited that she has a whistle.. whoa is me.

Delee said...

Can not believe the poker players one pulling the suitcase and one pushing the dolly duh

Sydney said...

Lovin mr pink hair -- he can heard ducks AND take apart VCR's with the same ease. He's special!

meb said...

Did it say anything about if they broke one??? That giraffe has to be the hardest one to deal with.

Delee said...

THey said if something broke they had to gather all the pieces and deliver them also

Sydney said...

How do we like the poker girls?

Seems we always have the bickering couple and the bitchy female duo... the parent child team, the loopy group and the ones who cry from something travel shows them in the cast. I like the people who cry from the beauty or the lessons that visiting other cultures brings.

Sydney said...

I think the blonde coulpe looks alot alike! White teeth! Same smile! Blonde hair! Twinkle in the eye!

Awww, they could have used a trip for two to Aruba. The Globetrotters trot the glob and prolly don't care.

Delee said...

I agree Sydney Loved as she remembered the war...

Delee said...

Wow that team is a mess...

Yeh my guys 3rd!!!!

Jackie said...

I hope Lance and Keri continue to implode. I'd rather see Ron and Marcy stay in than them.

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. I am late but been paying catch up with email.

Jackie, I read the Week in Pictures and the David Letterman post. You are so creative.

I sort of like my Poker Girls. That gal was wicked with tools!

I wish the older couple would stay instead of the lawyer. I can't stand him. He is such an ugly American.

Laurie said...

I haven't seen the show yet, but Lance showed he was a pompous ass last week (IMHO) and I doubt he is changing his tune. How anyone can put up with him is beyond me. He and bad Russell should hang out together!

Becky said...

Well, I am off to watch Desperate Housewives.

meb said...

Oh Well... short lived, but didn't think we'd get very far. Can't believe they didn't ask sooner about the letters they chose... hmmmm... sigh of relief cause now my heart won't be in my throat.

I won't tag onto the attorney, since I'm out of the race... that's for sure.

Now I can just enjoy the rest of the season.

Thanks Margo for doing the pool

Laurie said...

Well meb and Monty, we are out of the race but we aren't out of the blog! We can still hang out here and root for the other teams.

I'm rooting for the San Diego couple,Meghan and Cheyne, even if they are too perfect to be real.

monty924 said...

I was afraid to look when I got home, and now I know why. Sigh! Sexy and 60 are headed to Elimination Station and here's my avi for them.

Day late and a dollar short. :(

meb said...

It's OK Laurie and Monty... I'm going to just sit back and enjoy the show. Might pick up on somebody to latch onto later on.

Margo said...

Mom and I just watched - again someone we like goes home to early.

Margo

Sydney said...

Next-- DEXTER!!!!

monty924 said...

Meb and Laurie, we can relax now, lol. I think I'll root for the Globetrotters for now. I liked them and the poker girls from their bios. Laurie, your home town two are ones to watch as well.

My favs now that Marcy and Ron are gone are The HGs, Zev and Justin (didn't see tonight yet) and the father son team.

DVR didn't tape so I'll have to watch it tomorrow or later online. Rats!

Laurie said...

I probably won't see it until tomorrow. We are watching our Chargers and I'm pretty sure the channel won't be changing at 8. It's okay with me since I already know how it ends. We can watch it tomorrow.

Now if the Chargers would just play the game to win ...

Kathy in NC said...

Laurie, I think having bad Russel and Lance hang together would be like giving a tiger a squeeky mouse. Russel would bat him around for awhile and finally get tired of the noise. The mouse would then be shredded and devoured.

Margo said...

RyzandShyn said...

I have to say this is one amusing season. We've been laughing a lot here at my house. Someone on the TAR staff has displayed a wicked sense of humor in planning these challenges.
I'm enjoying the teams too. They are as amusing as the challenges.
Loved the older couple that went home this week. What a lovely woman.

Anonymous said...

I hope the Globetrotters are the team that loses their passports. They along with Miss America SHOULDN'T EVEN BE ON A REALITY COMPETITION SHOW AGAINST REGULAR PEOPLE!!!

Anonymous said...

Oh yeah I forgot the poker players shouldn't be on it either because they are semi-celebrities and both do well for themselves...

Laurie said...

Kathy, you are probably right and how fun would it be to watch the batting around?

We are watching the show now. Lance and Keri are driving both of us nuts. His arrogance and her voice could make a person ask for drugs! She reminds me of the character on Friends who always said "Oh my Gawd". How I wish they were the ones going home tonight. Maybe there's an alternate ending??

AlbGlinka said...

AlbGlinka checking in at work on a break, Mon. eve...

Was sorry to see the sexy seniors go...

The show is growing on me. I guess I truly am a Reality Tv addict.

Rooting for the friends w/ the broken giraffe.

Laurie said...

Well, no alternate ending. I was sorry to see my couple go, not because it kicks me out the pool, but because they seemed like nice people. I loved that she really appreciated being there and soaked up what she was seeing and feeling. I'm glad they showed us that part.

Dusty said...

I know I should be rooting for my team, but boy to they bother me. I'm finding it very difficult to cheer them on!

My team is Lance and Keri.

Laurie said...

yeah, Dusty, I wouldn't be able to root for them either. They aren't likable people, are they?

Sydney said...

Lol Albglinka! I'm so glad that you are checking in regularly these days from work and commenting. You were sorely missed by all last year when you could not join in.

That's one good reason to have gotten that job. :-)

jillian said...

the amazing race is good show. I have watched it few times. I found that in your blog you have added very little about tv shows. you should also add about tv shows. And you should also add about reality tv shows like Dancing With The Stars episodes. that will be useful for you...

ML said...

Wow Kathy in NC, quite graphic, but right on. Lance does think he's all that doesn't he? And to think Keri would be squealing in her irritating voice just watching...
