It's A Race! It's Amazing!

[Warning: Judging by a comment left by my long distance internet boyfriend, I think the link below may contain a spoiler. Forewarned and all that.]

It's The Amazing Race! This is singularly my biggest tv addiction, and it starts here 9.30 tonight. It aired yesterday in the US, so I'm in full media lockdown until tonight. Even with that link above, I didn't look at the screen too long lest it have some sort of ELIMINATED label on one of the teams.

Does this degree of excitement make me seem full of youthful enthusiasm, or just sad?...

Don't answer that.

You're adorable in full media lockdown.

P.S. It's a GOOD THING you didn't linger at that link, Martha.

Phew, I had a feeling that might be the case. I hope that link doesn't inadvertantly spoiler any readers...

::nibbles fingers nervously::

Media lockdown is really in force for the Oscars, but you just know that some ass will blurt out the results before air time. The newsreaders on the opposing tv stations (and sometimes even the same station) just LOVE to blurt out the results beforehand. Asses.

Bodes,
During TAR tonight there will be no talking while I'm trying to watch the tv, just so you know.

:-)

PS. how goes the not wanking?

I've only seen the show a couple of times, but i reckon Rob and I could go on it.
We would be crap and lose but have a great time doing it. Would have to get stressed at each other more often though....

The Other Andrew said...

They would never cast two people as laid back as you and Rob. They need screaming at each other, not two people going "yeah, whatever". :-)

You'd rock it though. You know how they sum up each couple in like one or two words ("Dating", "Soccer Moms", "Best Friends" etc), what would yours be? I'm guessing "Gnome Slayers"...

Michael said...

If it's screaming they need, I'm seeing a Long Distance Internet Boyfriends couple. Have I mentioned that I would ROCK THE SHIT out of this show? And you'd be along for the ride.

The Other Andrew said...

We'd be the snarky, bright and sassy gay guys that everyone, except maybe the born again Christian brother/sister combo (there's always one of those), would love to bits. You'd rock at the physical challenges I'm sure, I'd rock at the eating challenges...

The Other Andrew said...

BTW it's be more "shreiking" than "screaming" with us I think. Can you sing a show tune or two as well?

Michael said...

Is a frog's ass watertight?

The Other Andrew said...

Oh-kay, so they'd have to add "flamboyant" to our tag line as well.

giggle!

Well, as per my usual Thursday nite, I will be at my weekly gay therapy (at my Italian hairdressers), and then onto my old AA homegroup meeting. I won't be home till around 11pm, so the TV is all yours; you TAR tragic ;-)

PS. how goes the not wanking?

There I was sitting in the bus to work this morning, seats were all taken, and on comes this almost porn-star sterotype of a tradesman. This young, utterly beautiful blonde dude who's looks alone put the blue into blue-collar. He's wearing blue King Gee shorts so tight they accentuate his muscled thighs and awesome butt, and a black clinging why-did-he-have-to-wear-a-size-too-small t-shirt.

So I am sitting on those sideways facing-the-isle seats (you know the ones), and of course said hottie had to stand literally inches from my face whilst holding on the safety bar above. T-shirt sliding up enough to show a glimpse of rippling torso, nice treasure trial and revealing the tops of his boxers.

OH MY BRAD!!

What kind of fucked up karmic universe have I pissed off to deserve this?

*Sigh*

Must not think impure thoughts
Must not think impure thoughts
Must not think impure thoughts ...


[*Shakes head*]

Ummmm, what was the question again?

Bodhi said...

I know that treasure trial was a typo, but in this case I think its actually even more apt and fitting than treasure trail.

[*Quitely sobbing*]

[*Sniff*]

It goes well.

The Other Andrew said...

Uh huh, I can see that it's going well. I'm happy for you, I think.

:-)

Putting the 'blue' into 'blue collar', huh? More like the 'blue' into 'blue balls' I think.

I'm gonna have to start taking public transport again...

The Other Andrew said...

Suddenly the taxis futures market crashes...

You? Public transport. Bwahaha!

Amanda said...

So you might want to keep avoiding spoilers 'cause the US screened the first two episodes together so you see who gets philiminated, whereas we just got the first and a "to Be Continued ... "

Bugger this, I'm just gonna download them from now on.
