BB hasn't woken the HGs yet, so I just did a quick look over on ebay, and oh my goodness is Steven making a killing?! He had one t-shirt go for over $1,000! Not quite Nick-mania, but still darn impressive. Steven still has another t-shirt and a hat listed, but hurry if you want to check them out. They both end very soon - one around noon BBT and the other an hour later.
Brian's got some offerings on ebay too, and they are considerably more affordable at this juncture. I'm tempted to go after the Big Brother Bag, myself.
9:33am BB - Fishies!
Wakey, Wakey Houseguests! It's time to entertain the live feed viewers! We want our 49 cents worth today! ;p hehehe. Come on.. Who's gonna go ballistic first? We dare ya.
Michelle's outside with Jessie. She's chipper. I'm noticing she wakes up happy every day. Pleasant chatter.
Ollie's in the Storage Room, changing batteries.
A couple minutes later, Keesha makes her way in to the Storage Room, too.
BB: Houseguests, I said it's time to get up for the day.
After brief Fishies, we come back to Keesha in the kitchen. She says good morning to Dan. Michelle and Jessie continue chatting outside.
BB: Memphis, I said it's time to get up.
Jessie's talking about his dream last night, involving a high school nemesis and BB.
Memphis is out of bed and into the storage room. Michelle and Jessie continue talking outside. Keesha's in the bathroom. Memphis comes in. Renny too. They all look very tired.
Ollie wanders down from HoH and heads outside to the backyard.
Keesha and Dan are at the kitchen counter, chatting nicely.
Renny's milling about in the bathroom, and she can be seen in the distance behind Keesha.
Dan, Memphis, Renny & Keesha
Happy chatter... and a little Dan teasing about wanting to use the HoH bathroom all the time.
More HGs are coming to life.
Renny, Dan, Memphis and Keesha are joined by Michelle and Jerry.
Ollie passes through again.
Chatter about what time they all had to wake up for high school. Renny can't believe how early they all had to go to school.
April's up, alone in HoH, and putting her makeup on.
She makes quick work of it, then sets to tidying up the room, grabbing her bag of dirty laundry and heading out the door.
Dan, Renny, Jerry, Michelle
Renny: Good morning, April.
April: Good morning, honey.
Dan: Can I go up and use your bathroom?
April: Sure, honey... You guys might want to hurry. Just 30 minutes ago they were telling me to get ready to do the blog, so pictures might be soon.
Michelle wonders what time they're going to be on the Craig Ferguson Show today, and she assumes the reason they're on each week is because there's an Actor's strike happening now.
Renny, Keesha and Jerry
Jerry's frying up some slop for breakfast and telling a story about one of his daughters and an issue she had with a school teacher.
The ladies are slightly less than intrigued listening to Jerry this morning.
Jerry turns the conversation to New Orleans reconstruction. Renny says it's coming along, but it'll take a while.
April & Libra
The chatter is about birthdays and rollerskating, but the subtext is all game. April's showing Libra attention very intentionally... Libra makes the first strike.
Libra: So apparently Ollie got really offended by something I said last night, and he doesn't even want to talk to me anymore. I don't give a sh*t. Nothing against you.
Talk turns to each woman's controlling nature, and how the house brings it out even more. Both acknowledge that in the real world, you can just walk away, but not here. Libra asserts her desire to be friendly with whomever she chooses.
April insists she took no offense to what Libra said last night.
Libra: I'm like, I have someone in my core alliance that I can't even express my true feelings to? Well F that.
April: I totally hear you...
Both agree that every person in the house has to do what's best for them to stay in the game. Libra keeps circling back to intentionally comfort April, referring to team, team, team.
April is now trying to cast doubt upon Keesha in Libra's mind... then April goes for the jugular..
April: I've been hearing that you Keesha and Renny are now in an alliance.
Libra: (laughs) Renny told you that?
April: No... I've just been hearing things. I don't want to believe it. i know you guys share a bedroom...
Libra turns it around, talking about her own concerns...
Libra: Think about it from my end. Keesha has Renny. She was up there in her HoH every single night. You have Ollie. Who do I have?
Talk turns to Michelle and Jessie. April wants to "reassure" Libra that there's nothing between her and them. Libra says she understands that, but she wants April to understand her feelings about Jessie and where they come from. Libra runs through the litany of Jessie's offenses.
Libra lets April totally off the hook and tells her that she doesn't hold her responsible for anything that's happened this week. Libra puts it all off on Ollie and Jerry being constantly in April's ear. April laughs and doesn't contradict her.
April laughs even more when Libra asks her if it doesn't drive her a little nuts that Ollie's treating her HoH as if he won it.
Libra gets off the Hammock and offers these final words..
Libra: You're gonna see Jerry's true colors as soon as that HoH is won.
April: Oh, I know.
April and Libra head inside. Libra gives Renny a hug and a thank you for being such a sweetheart last night when she was crying over missing her kids. Libra goes to change for HoH pics.
10:53am BBT - 11am BBT
Libra and Keesha
Libra tells Keesha what just went down outside. Keesha can barely contain her laughter. Complete disclosure.
Libra tells Keesha she told April she was "staying the course," and she's quite sure April only came to talk to her to "see where her head is."
Operation Mutiny is on track.
Libra: It's my vote. Kiss my ass.
Michelle and April
Jessie just left.
April's doing her hair while Michelle tells her about the school system in Rhode Island...
BB: April, please come to the Diary Room.
Michelle starts humming "The Hustle."
Keesha: I don't even believe they saw what it said.
Libra doesn't either.
Keesha: Because if they did, production wouldn't let them talk about it.
- ***Smart cookie.
Libra: I had to lie in bed last night and think about what my mom would say. She'd say, there are no f'in friends in here.
Keesha: I know. My mom too.
Libra: What? There are supposed to be 7 of us who don't talk to any other people in the house. That's stupid. We're getting ready to break this sh*t up, and ya know what, I'm going out on my own terms.
Keesha: I agree.
Renny, Libra and Michelle
Libra's doing her hair. Michelle's rigging up her uni over her bikini. Suddenly, they both hear a very loud toot. Both are cracking up, as silently as possible, when Jerry emerges from the toilet.
Backyard - Near Laundry Machines
Michelle & Jessie
Michelle tells Jessie what just happened in the bathroom.
A few feet away, Ollie's playing pool by himself.
Memphis comes out and asks if he's ok. He says yes.
11:26am - 11:33am BBT
Keesha & Libra
Libra says she was gonna do her makeup in the bathroom, but she had to escape the smell... apart from which, she couldn't even look Jerry in the face. Poor Slop Man.
Renny comes in.
Chatter about Dan... last night, Keesha showed him how to cut out the number 20 from his t-shirt, because he wanted to acknowledge his 20 month anniversary with Monica. He's wearing the shirt today.
Libra: Ollie pissed me off.
Libra: Last night.. Just how he thinks he's running the sh*t. Not for long...
Keesha: I agree.
Keesha: Also, people don't act that way unless they have reasons to...
BB: Dan, please go to the Diary Room.
Libra: If Dan backs out of this, I'm gonna kill him.
Keesha: You wouldn't be the only one.
Libra: Mmhm. I'd have to switch up my situation.
They talk about the other side's opinion of Dan... the other side being April, Ollie, etc.
April joins them.
Talk is about Jessie...
Keesha: He reminds me of like a junior Dick.
Libra: Who's that?
April: Evel Dick.
Libra: Oh please. He reminds me of shut the F up. But when ya think about it, he's playing the game in such a way that people are gonna want to sit next to him in the end.
Libra: I hate goodbye message day.
April: Me too.
Keesha: oh shoot. That is today.
Libra: I'm just gonna powder up. Remember that song... Party like 1999?
Libra: What? I'm just gonna quote a line. "I've got a lion in my pocket, and baby he's ready to roar." Just one of those weird quotes you realize you had no idea what it meant until you were so much older.
Hippie Room, cont'd.
April's still there. Talk turns to chatter about growing up in a very small town. Both April and Keesha grew up in towns that didn't even have a single stoplight.
