BB HGs: Oregon, eBay and Outer Space

Happy Thursday, Big Brother lovers!  Happy Passover!  Happy Easter!

Ok, so in the previous post we established that while CBS has confirmed a summer start for Big Brother 11, they haven't actually confirmed a date yet. They have, however, begun the casting process.

We also announced that we'll be twittering BB11 this season. You can follow us on twitter by clicking here and choosing "follow." 

I've been digging around for more Big Brother related info, and here's some of what I've found...

2nd Annual Reality Reunion

Kail BB8 and James from BB6 and All-Stars are hosting the 2nd annual Reality Reunion Event in Rainbow Oregon, and you're all invited. The event takes place from May 3rd to May 6th and space is limited, so if you're interested in attending, click here for all the info.

In addition to Kail and James, you can expect to see BB alumni from seasons 5-10: Cowboy from BB5; Howie, Janelle and Kaysar from BB6 and All-Stars; Ashlea and Beau from BB6; Joe Barber from BB8; Natalie, Parker and Alex from BB9, as well as April, Michelle and Brian from BB10.

***April 14, 2009 Update - This event keeps growing!  BB9 Chelsea confirmed her attendance just this morning.

Ebay Mayhem and Foolishness
I did a quick check on BB ebay auctions, and found that someone's got a buy it now auction for BB8 Carol's BB Duffle Bag. It's on the pricey side...

I've been a bit of an ebay spazz lately. Anyone else out there? I've got 2 questions for you: What is the weirdest thing you've bought? What is the most useful thing? 

I'll confess first:

Best/Most Useful: For obvious BB blogging reasons... Adjustable Laptop Handmade Bed Tray Table. It arrived yesterday, and I couldn't be happier! :)

Weirdest: I actually bought a 25 pound bag of rocks. lol. A friend of mine is a high school art teacher, and she's been on budget fumes for months, so I asked her for a wish list and set to filling it. Now, Rocks weren't actually on the list, but when I saw these, I thought they might be cool for all kinds of projects.

BB in Outer Space

Last but not least, I offer the following quote:

"Of course, it's a serious challenge to spend 105 days in isolation seeing the same faces, but it's a positive challenge: we represent different cultures, we have different experience and we can learn a lot from one another."

Sounds like a really enlightened houseguest on Big Brother, right?

Well, it's not. It's a German Astronaut talking about an "international team of researchers who entered a claustrophobic metal module in northern Moscow Tuesday to spend three months in windowless isolation intended to simulate the stress and fatigue of space flight to Mars." Here's the rest of the article.

Gotta love it when life imitates art. ;) At least the astronauts wont have the added pressures of weekly evictions and knowing everyone around them is out to get them!

My most useful Ebay purchases are books, my most unusual would have to be The Big Lebowski buttons. I'm thinking you spent a small fortune on shipping! ;-)

does the twittering mean that this site will cease to exist? or can we still get updates her as well?

EvelAlida - Thank you so much, hon! It means a lot.

Melanie - Welcome back, Melanie! :) Thank you!

NikNik - Noooooo!! This site will exist. Twitter will just be a little bonus feature. ;)

Oh good! I was wondering the same thing. I couldn't live through BB without my DishChicks!

Soooooo glad you are back!! Great to see ALL of you!! :)

Ebay stuff: got the books I didn't have for Anne Rice.

Most of my purchases as of late have been Christmas shopping things or clothes. I've lost almost 50 pounds!!

I'm not on twitter and am hoping to avoid that one since I've survived without my space too :)

Happy Easter everyone!
