Friday Morning in The Big Brother 11 House
The morning report is well underway below here, but a couple of things need re-stating... First off, a word from CBS regarding the America's Vote voting:
- IMPORTANT NOTICE #1-- All online votes cast before 9:20 PM EST (6:20 PT) on July 30 have been disqualified due to technical difficulties. We encourage you to vote again if you voted during this time period. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
- IMPORTANT NOTICE #2 -- If you're a U.S. resident and you subscribe to the live feeds, one of the perks you're entitled to is $10 in free music every month. Ahem... Today is July 31st... the end of the month. Make sure you take advantage of this perk, and go get your free music today!!
If you haven't noticed yet, there are 2 new Quickie Polls on the right sidebar that need your attention.
Russell's been up since 9:57am BBT, but the rest of the house is still fast asleep, and BB hasn't made a wake up call yet.
In the meantime, Russell's changed his batteries, made himself breakfast, ate it, stared at the memory wall for a bit, washed all his dishes and headed back up to HoH to use the bathroom.
He's puttering around up in HoH now... weighed himself, checking the drawers in the bathroom, hopped back into bed, turned on the spy screen, grabbed his coffee, had a sip, and then on to re-reading the wonderful letter from home....
It's good to be king.
Still monitoring the spy screen, Russell puts his headphones on to listen to the Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik, and something makes him laugh a little. Knowing the band, I'd guess it was a lyric.
Russell's chilling and all the other HGs are still sleeping... It's BB's habit to cut everyone some slack the morning following an Endurance Comp.
lol. As soon as I typed those last words, the feeds cut to Fishies!
Wakey, Wakey, Houseguests!!! It's time to get up and entertain the live feed viewers!!!
Jeff, Jordan, Michele, Russell
Jeff's fixing breakfast, Jordan's pulling down dishes. Russell comes in, then Michele. They're talking about breakfast and Casey... He left things behind for Russell and Jeff, shorts a shirt and smokes...
Russell and Jeff are talking about having the shivers last night.
Russell: I didn't even take a shower last night.. You were smart.
Jeff: Yeah, man, I had to...
Russell: Dude, you were in the diary room a looonnnng time.
Jeff: I know, man.
Russell: I was so happy when I came in and saw they got us pizza...
Ronnie makes his way into the kitchen. Conversation stops.
11:03am BBT - kitchen, cont'd.
Michele's cutting up an apple. Russell's about to wash something
Russell: Did they tell you when you went in there? They said that was the hardest competition we've done.
Jeff: No, I got no props.
Jeff resumes cooking breakfast for himself and Jordan... Looks good... Ronnie's in the kitchen, and thus far, he has not uttered a word to anyone.
Lydia has joined the living. Michele's developed a bad cough from the comp last night. Jeff's still preparing breakfast, and Jordan's sitting at the counter watching Jeff... Ronnie pours himself some coke.
Jeff: Coke for breakfast, man?
Lydia: How was sleeping in a big bed last night?
Russell: Dude, I barely slept at all. i was up and down all night... but it was nice not hearing Jeff snore.
Russell, Jeff and Chima discuss their war wounds... They're all pretty sore. Jordan's hurting too.
BB played music for Jeff and Russell today: Bob Marley for Jeff and Tupac Shakur for Russell.
Jeff, Jordan, Russell, Chima, Lydia, Ronnie
Jeff and Jordan are enjoying the breakfast he prepared. Lydia's making hers. Pleasant chatter for everyone and a bit of light flirtation between Russell and Chima... Chima picked up on Russell's sisters nudge to him to lose the mustaches, talking about how the women like his smooth, clean face. Russell says there were all kinds of hidden messages in that letter.
***To re-listen to the letter, access the HoH Reveal on Flashback - all 4 feeds, 7/30 11:50pm.
Same group, cont'd.
Russell, Jeff and Chima are chatting about their parents and text messaging. It's cute... They move on to the music this morning... and back to chatter about the comp last night. Russell peeing himself, everyone puking...
***And a pic of Jeff eating, because he looks better than the food he prepared, and that's saying a lot. ;)
Talk turns to the prizes last night... Lydia wonders if they can do some trading. Russell says he doesn't think so, because the DR told Natalie last night that her Slop Pass was not transferable.
***Anyone else wonder if it might have been, had Natalie intended to give it to anyone but Jessie??
Russell: Dude, my sac got caught in the rope... Russell, why'd you fall? Uhh.. my scrotum got caught in the wire.
Russell, Ronnie, Lydia
Russell says he still can't bear the idea of being under any water... Lydia asks if he'll be her tanning friend today. He says sure, they head outside.
BB calls a lockdown. Everybody outside. Russell goes up to the HoH to wake Jessie and Natalie who are sleeping in his bed, and let them know about the lockdown... Everyone heads out.
Chima notices how quiet it seems with only 10 in the house now.
Chima: What're you gonna do all day if you're not working out?
Russell: Talk to everybody about who they want up.
Chima: Oh yeah.. you do have a busy day... Any idea when they'll do it?
Chima: Those bastards on the ledge yesterday, man.
Russell: They were laughin' so hard.
Chima: I know they were.
***Educated guess here is SFX &/or PAs were up there.
While Russell and Chima are chatting on the couch, Michele piping in occasionally... Lydia's on the double chaise, solo.
Jordan gets out of the pool and hops into the hammock, and the camera op sets up a nice shot of her with the reflection from the mirror. As you can see along the bottom frames of the post, Ronnie's solo, separated from the group on the couch...
It's noon bbt, so the morning is officially over! I'll be opening up a new post by 12:15pm BBT!
