The Amazing Race 26: April 10 Blog Party


It's Friday night! I hope you haven't forgotten that it's time for The Amazing Race! While I personally haven't forgotten it, tonight will be a bit hit or miss for me. Y'see ... I have the Cold From Hell that's been going around here on the East Coast. I can't breathe, sleep, think, etc. Tonight's updates will be the major major happenings without much detail because my mind is so fuzzy. I think I should invest in the facial tissue industries!

Plus, several of our regulars here won't be able to make it tonight.

Double whammy.

Here's the blog pool standings presented by the Magnificent Margo:

Mike and Rochelle - Cheryl in NC, Laurie
Aly and Steve - Jackie, SueGee
Matt and Ashley - Delee, Merrilee
Blair and Hayley - Terry in TX, Margo, Chris
Jeffrey and Jackie - Brian, Donna in AL, ORKMommy
Jelani and Jenny - Marlo, Lynn 1, dla
Tyler and Laura - Ed in OH, David, Nickelpeed

PHILIMINATED:
Jeff and Lyda - Jennasmom, Paula Bell, meb
Lebya and CJ - Donna in FL, PDXGranny 
Harley and Jonathan - Becky, Willie J 
Bergen and Kurt - Nana in NW, Rbennie

Teams are headed to Monaco. After a Roadblock with chocolates and flowers, teams are off the Casino Royale in Monte Carlo where they'll gamble to determine their Detour.  

Win by a Nose has them making perfume and cologne.  Don't Slack Off has them ziplining down and walking a rope back up.

Pit Stop Order:
1. Blair and Hayley - Won a trip to South Africa
2. Aly and Steve
3. Mike and Rochelle
4. Matt and Ashley
5. Jelani and Jenn
6. Laura and Tyler

I hope you feel better soon, Jackie. Thank you for hosting even feeling lousy.

Terry is a Texan! said...

I really am not crazy about my team but they are still in it!

Becky said...

Hey, Terry. How is the weather there?

Becky said...

My team was Philiminated early. I do not like blondie.

Becky said...

If I was in the race I think I would leave whatever I didn't need at the pit stop.... like clothes I had worn.

I like the couple who got on the first flight.

David said...

Hi everyone =)

My team is also still in it, but they have flirted with last place a couple of times so I don't know for how much longer.

Cheryl Sherman said...

Hi all!! better late then never i guess....it looks like pool pick team has a few smarts..they got on that 1st plane

Cheryl Sherman said...

Becky said...

Hey, David and Cheryl. Glad you are here.

Cheryl Sherman said...

hi Becky and David!

Nickelpeed said...

I'm heeeereeee. LOL.

Got off of work early.

So, what's going on?

Monaco is so beautiful. When My husband and I were there, you'd see all these gorgeous cars and yachts. Very beautiful.

How's the weather in Texas?

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you for hosting Jackie. I just read you do not feel good. Hope you get better soon.

Becky said...

Don't just stand there. Get moving.

Becky said...

Hey, Penny. I dodged showers going to the nursing home and then to the grocery. We had a neat young man come play his guitar and sing to the residents at lunch.

~~Silk said...

Hello, all. I'll be lurking and reading.

Cheryl Sherman said...

Hi Penny ,
they all got Monaco....the trucker couple who were next to last in the last leg...got smart and the airport and got them selves on standby for the first flight and got on

Becky said...

How is weather where the rest of you are located?

Becky said...

Hey, Silk. Glad you could make it.

Cheryl Sherman said...

been hot here in nc...mis 80s the last couple days

Becky said...

I love that commercial. The one with the couple and the "I Had the Time of My Life" song.

Cheryl Sherman said...

lol...me too becky

Becky said...

What state are you in Cheryl? It sounds like here on the TX coast.

Cheryl Sherman said...

nc

David said...

Get better soon Jackie. sounds like that cold is nasty You can keep it on the east coast if you will please.

Nickelpeed said...

I've been to that perfume factory. OMGosh, I am allergic to chemicals. I thought I was going to die with that smell. Some are okay, floral just about kill me. LOL

Becky said...

I am allergic to so many scents. I would be in misery.

Nickelpeed said...

For the perfume, they need to neutralze the smell, then go on to the next one. Perfume chemists usually use menthol or others to make it easier to smell the next. LOL.

Cheryl Sherman said...

teh zipliners got the easy one

Becky said...

I hate walking into Kirklands because the store reeks of potpori.

Nickelpeed said...

Man, after smelling all of that, I'd be useless. LOL

Cheryl Sherman said...

of course i can say that because i dont have to do it...lol

Nickelpeed said...

When I worked at this super store, I worked in Health and Beauty. People would come in and spray perfume after perfume. Not just a little bit, but they'd give themselves baths in it. Was not good at all.

Becky said...

If I had to walk across a line, then I would wet my pants the entire way. I know, TMI.

Becky said...

Is this a non-elim round?

David said...

Ewwww. I would also be choking and gagging at the perfume factory. I don't know which perfumes I am allergic too, seems to be something in the cheap ones, but just being around someone wearing it will cause me to sneeze uncontrollably, eyes watering and start swelling up.

Becky said...

Me too, David. I always know what I am getting from hubby on special occasions because my perfume is not cheap.... or even reasonable.

Cheryl Sherman said...

crap...i left for a minute...howd they get to first.....did everyone else get lost

Nickelpeed said...

Becky,

How are you feeling? Your mom and your husband?

Nickelpeed said...

Noooooooooooo.

Nickelpeed said...

I like these two. Darn.

Becky said...

Oh, it's a shame that they are eliminated.

Cheryl Sherman said...

awwwwww ..how sweet...sorry to see them go

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you for hosting, Jackie. I really appreciate it.

Darn, I didn't like who was eliminated. :-(


I do work next Wednesday and Friday. No early outs, though, with baseball. LOL

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you so much for hosting. Stay in this weekend and get well. Tell Vincent it is his turn to take care of you.

Jackie said...

I'm sorry I was so quiet tonight. I can barely keep my eyes open. This cold is knocking me for a loop and I haven't slept well all week ... yet worked.

Thank you for coming by!

Cheryl Sherman said...

Goodnight all.....Jackie get some rest and hope you feel better soon..thanks as alwas for letting us hang out at tour place!!

Jackie said...

I have to work tomorrow, Becky. Sigh.

David said...

wow, my team flirted with last place again. But still in it. =)

Thanks Jackie. Hope you get better soon.

Everyone have a good evening.

Nickelpeed said...

Hope you feel better soon, Jackie

Nickelpeed said...
