What could be better than a cozy rainy Sunday evening at home, with everybody accounted for, some of the New York Times still left to read and Amazing Race coming on later. I can’t wait. Will Luke and Margie nice-en up? Will Cara and Jaime finally realize that the whole world does not speak English? Will Tammy and Victor be victorious? And will Kisha and Jen … well, my annoyance at them for escalating the whole Luke and Margie confrontation evaporated during this past episode, when Jen was so valiantly trying to face her body-paralyzing fear of water and Kisha was so bravely supportive of her sister. Seems as if Luke and Margie would understand something about trying to overcome obstacles. I’m just saying.
I am SO over Luke and Margie. They are not nice people. I’m rooting for Tammy and Victor. He has mellowed so much since the ill-fated casket episode.
You are so right, Sarah. At first I was for the mother-son team, but now they seem as if they feel entitled. But I wonder if really they’re nice people we’d like to be friends with but competition and stress is bringing out the worst in them.
I must not be watching the right shows because I didn’t understand any of that. It can’t possibly be the 2 glasses of wine. Enjoy the evening at home.
Michele — It’s Amazing Race, down to the final couples (and, I have to admit, a couple glass of wine, too!).
Update: Jen and Kisha out due to slow bug eating and a bathroom break. But really, I would have done the same thing in Jen’s place. Is everybody betting on Tammy and Victor for the win?
I was really sorry to see Kisha and Jen go. I think I’m rooting for Tammy and Victor at this point. The rude redhead has soured me on their team. I think Margie has babied Luke a bit too much in his lifetime – although I can’t say I wouldn’t have done the same in her shoes. It was somehow good to hear her admit that she’s tired of him calling her.
Ah! I miss TV! Real TV not BBC and MTV! Real TV shows! Soon!
Stuck here in Scotland I have no idea what you are talking about, but it sounds really exciting. Stress and competition definitely brings out the worst in me.
KayKay — I think you’re right. It’s easy to be critical of Margie but what mom among us wouldn’t have been just as protective over a deaf child? And I love that she’s getting a little annoyed at him, too!
Luke and Margie are still my favorites..she is running a great race. He is a bit impatient..but after all he is deaf. I hope they win..although Tammy and Victor are a strong pair also. I am over the Redheads..they seem so blonde…duh ..no one speaks English ..and all the cab drivers are out to ruin their lives:)
Can’t imagine why anyone would have taken a bathroom break before they checked in with the redheads so close behind them. Just wet yourself!! The mom is getting tired-she has had to run this whole race mostly by herself. I think being in China gave the siblings an unfair advantage. But, of the three left, I would prefer that they win.
Cathy Layne — You are so right! Especially when your only choice is a Porta-Potty. Yuck.
