The Amazing Race 25: November 21 Blog Party


Good evening! After a week off for an awards show, TAR is back on tonight! The only problem is that I might not be. I need to have my head examined. Oh, yes. I know what you're thinking -- it's long overdue! But, more seriously, I have an appointment for an MRI of my brain to rule out anything more serious than a concussion. I might not be back in time for the start of the show. So, I'm setting this to post automatically. Hopefully, that won't be needed and I'll chime in on my return.

The blog pool's standings from the Marvelous Margo -- The last episode was a non-Philimination leg with Tim and Te Jay arriving last:

Adam & Bethany - chrob61, Kathy in Brooklyn, Kelsey NY, Zoetawny
Brooke & Robbie - Caela, Sharon, Sharon N, Willie J
Kym & Alli - Brenda, meb, Nicklepeed, Rochelle, Terry in TX
Maya & Amy - Ed in OH, Karen in CA, Lynn1, Margo
Misti & Jim - Cheryl in NC, Laurie, ML, OrkMommy
Tim & Te Jay - Babs, Brent McKee, Dusty, Monty924,

Sorry you have been PHILIMINATED
Lisa & Michelle - Becky, Delee, dla, Donna in AL
Dennis & Isabelle - Auntie Leigh, Brian, David, Donna NY, sanra
Michael & Scott - Donna in FL, Glenn, Jackie, Marlo
Keith & Whitney - Jean, Jennasmom, Nana in NW, PDXGranny
Shelly & Nici - Buzzmaam, Merrilee, Rbennie, SueGee

Please make yourself comfy in the comments area and party hearty! If you can throw in an update or two, that would be appreciated!

Okay, I'm here. They're off to Malta. After a balancing glasses/booze act, they will rappel off a cliff in Malta.

Detour - Flag or Shine - no explanation for them. Grab flag at the end of a greasy pole (each get one) over water.

Tim and Te Jay's speed bump is to paint a Maltese cross on a shield.

Shine has them shining each other in armor.

While the others struggle, Adam and Bethany use their Express Pass to skip the detour and head to the Pit Stop.

Pit Stop -
1. Adam and Bethany! Each won $10,000
2. Misti and Jim
3. Kym and Alli
4. Amy and Maya
5. Brooke and Robbie
6. Tim and Te Jay -- Philiminated

Howdy everyone. I remembered :)))

Jackie, hope you're feeling better tonight.

Jackie said...

I just got in! MRI done.

Nickelpeed said...

Feel better soon Jackie. Hope you get more answers...that you probably already know.

Thank you for letting us use your place.

monty924 said...

Hope you get a clean bill of health soon. Knocks on the head are not fun.

I feel like it's been a month since TAR was on. My team has a speed bump tonight, I think??

Nickelpeed said...

Not all New Yorkers are like that.

Becky said...

Jackie, praying for good results. I forgot the show last week. Wondered why I couln't find it on line!

I forgot about Survivor Wednesday. Well I didn't forget the show, I forgot the day and thought it was Tuesday.

My head is clogged with allergies.

Nickelpeed said...

Let's see who does what...

Taxis are always fun to grab.

Jackie said...

Is your team Tim and Te Jay, Monty?

Nickelpeed said...

I really like Adam and Bethany.

The cyclists are my pool picks.

monty924 said...

Hi Penny! I saw where you asked about Petals the other night. I don't think she's watching Survivor since Rocker was voted out.

David said...

Hello everyone. =)

I guess you put the rumors to rest that you are a robot Jackie since you survived being in a MRI machine. =)

Hope all went well and you are on the mend and don't need anything else more serious done.

Nickelpeed said...

Yeah, they dropped it. Sorry, don't like the dentists.

Would hate him doing that fixing my teeth. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Got to root for Kym and Ali since they are my pool pick.

I want Bethany to do well.

Oh no. That's horrible. :-(

Nickelpeed said...

Crap

monty924 said...

Hey Becky and David

Nickelpeed said...

Yay Kym and Ali...go for it!

Nickelpeed said...

ooops Kym and Alli

monty924 said...

That's tough. I couldn't do it.

Nickelpeed said...

Why would they need a taxi? They have to do it all over again?

Drat, the Dentists are done.

But, yay for Adam and Bethany!!! Cool!

monty924 said...

They do have the worst luck with taxis.

Becky said...

Glad to see you are back, Jackie.

Don't care for the bikers, dentists or wrestlers.

Nickelpeed said...

How did the two college guys get a taxi so fast?

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky...how are things going?

Nickelpeed said...

I was so peeved tonight. Someone hit our mail box and busted the THICK post almost in half. Not a happy camper. Very irritated about it. Didn't even stop, just continued to drive on.

monty924 said...

The wrestlers completed it Penny

Jackie said...

U think the guy from the wrestlers can be funny. The cyclists I'd like better if they weren't so blatantly nasty about the dentists. I don't care for Jim of the dentists, but I kind of like her -- mainly because she said such nice things about Bethany. Bethany and Adam are my favorites -- because of her challenges and how she handles things, plus they get along so well!

monty924 said...

Yes, Jackie. I have Tim and Te Jay

Jackie said...

That's I think, not U think.

Nickelpeed said...

I always dislike it when they make them all wait. It evens them again. So, whomever was first, isn't first anymore. In this case....I'm glad it's not the Dentists, though.

Becky said...

Penny, I will vacuum tonight since I missed last week and last night.

Nickelpeed said...

I am so amazed at Bethany. She can do anything. I'm very impressed.

monty924 said...

I would so do this. Love rappelling but haven't done it in over twenty years.

Becky said...

Oh, you are such a jealous slug!

Becky said...

Bethney amazes me every week.

Nickelpeed said...

I love that...the Terminator. They all really admire her. She's a rock!!

monty924 said...

Hahaha, this is going to be great

monty924 said...

T&T are messing up when they need to race clean. UGH

monty924 said...

Dang! Now everyone is doing Shine

monty924 said...

Don't blame Adam and Bethany

Nickelpeed said...

I wouldn't be able to do that. No way.

Nickelpeed said...

Glad Bethany and Adam skipped it.

Becky said...

I like the T's.

Nickelpeed said...

Glad they came in first. Wow. A lot of money!!! Good for them.

Nickelpeed said...

They look pretty shined, don't they.

Well, you are negative! Hateful person.

I have a feeling they'll be last this time.

Becky said...

Brooke and Robbie irk me.

monty924 said...

Ut oh! bad decision on the part of the wrestlers.

monty924 said...

OUCH

Nickelpeed said...

These sports are kind of funny.

Becky said...

Close! Of course that doesn't count except in horse shoes.

Becky said...

Poor kid.

Nickelpeed said...

I kind of feel sorry for these guys. That is very hard.

monty924 said...

I think my guys are done this week.

Nickelpeed said...

She never stops complaining.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow. That was smart of them to hold their taxi.

monty924 said...

Well, good run guys!

Jackie said...

Aw, I didn't think they'd win, but they sure gave it their all.

monty924 said...

Thanks, Jackie. Everyone have a great weekend and a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Becky said...

Darn! I wanted the T's to remain.

Thank you Jackie. I will close and lock the door after I finish cleaning up.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I won't be here next Friday, I'll be at my MILs and she has not internet.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving all!!

Thank you Jackie for hostin us.

Get well soon

David said...

That makes you a free agent now Monty. =) Too bad for the guys, I liked them.

Thanks Jackie =)
Get better soon.

Jackie said...

Thank you all for coming by1

Jackie - I'm posting late because this is off topic, and I hope you do see it anyway. Back in the early '70s I bonked my head, and had serious problems for months, but they couldn't find anything wrong (pre-MRI days). It wasn't until my GP was checking the glands in my neck when he noticed a strange hard lump under my jaw. There was another hard lump behind the ear on the other side. It turned out that when I'd bonked my head it had been lifted off the atlas vertebra, the atlas vertebra turned, and the skull settled back down angled off the atlas. The doctor said I had suffered an "internal decapitation". He thought it was funny. I didn't.

So, anyway, when you get the results, it they don't have a definite diagnosis, ask if they did verify the atlas vertebra and the medulla oblongata.
