call me crazy, but I find the sisters enthusiasm infectious, i love it!

I do not abandon my friends when they make a mistake, so I shall stand by TAR and enjoy it anyway.

Ha! You are some friend, FG! I have dvr'd the first two episodes and we're going to watch it any day, I swear! It's amazing though, how little I care about this season already. I think it's a combination of still suffering from overload from the last smooshed together races and the fact that it's families. I spend time trying to *avoid* travelling with my family!

Remy pointed out to me last night that Phil did NOT say, "This is the next pit stop in a race around the world." Instead, he said, This is the next pit stop in The Amazing Race." I don't think they're even leaving the continent. I am so bummed about that.

No offense to my American friends, but I really am not interested in an 11-week American History lesson. Surprisingly, I know more American History than some of the people on the race, which automatically gives me an exemption, being a foreigner and all.

The Rogers Dad really pissed me off. I hate people like that. Life is making mistakes and laughing about them, not blaming your kid because you're a pompous asshole, and then when your team gets eliminated because of YOUR error, make some disgustingly sanctimonious speach about teaching your kids to not blame others when something goes wrong. My five fingers like to say SLAP! to his face, yo.

And Phil! Michael, I noticed his outfit right off. I like Phil as much as the next guy but he's not my big crush or anything. However, if he keeps wearing jeans like that I'm going to have to change my mind!

I would kill for any guy in those jeans, they were just awesome! (seriously, you could even put fabio in those jeans and I'd be all over him)

I am also hoping each week is not another history lesson.

How sad was it when the Gaghan son finally suggested they ask someone but he was ignored. I guess he can't run a 7 minute mile, so he gets the shaft.

Soosan at October 5, 2005 02:00 PM

I'm not interested in a season-long history lesson, either. I'd rather if they were going to do it this way, turn it a into Roadside America or Weird NJ-type thing - let's see all the really bizarre things in this country. Like that gigantic water tower painted like a peach in South Carolina.

How sad is it that one of the females in the Jesus Help Us Read This Map Family (sorry, can't remember their names) didn't know if the reflecting pool was in Washington DC or Washington State.

with about 15 minutes left in the show i said "i really don't even care about this episode anymore." either the paolos or the rogers could have lost and it would have been fine with me. although i did have a sinningly good crush on the son.

and seriously. when the gaghan dad said "we've been here for two hours" i about died. two HOURS of wandering around, and not even thinking to re-read the clue? good lord.

"When that boy turns 18, he is so moving to the big city to start up with the sinning."

That is so funny/so true.

How much do we miss the Blacks? Has anyone really picked a team to root for? Usually two weeks in and I have a few favorites. I am not STOKED about them, but I do enjoy the Cincinnati kids with their "Who Dey" and "X" shirts. Snarking and farting and needling each other with their generic accents--make one of the boys a girl and another one gay and it's like my childhood.

Michael at October 5, 2005 06:40 PM

I am so with Sar - with about 15 minutes left, I actually started fast-forwarding through the show because I couldn't care less who was eliminated. I NEVER fast-forward through The Amazing Race. It's like the one show that is sacred to me. Or it was.

I am kind of a fan of the Cincinnati kids too. And I don't mind the sisters, especially after this week when their screeching was toned down. Other than that, umm, no favorites at all. The Gaghan family annoys the heck out of me but I have to say, I'm pretty impressed that those two parents are doing all those physical tasks all by themselves basically.

"Like that gigantic water tower painted like a peach in South Carolina."

I really want them to go to South of the Border.

Maggie at October 6, 2005 02:50 AM

" I NEVER fast-forward through The Amazing Race"

awww fast forwards... think we'll see any?

Soosan at October 6, 2005 06:48 AM

Maggie, someday we will go. I've only driven past it. I remember being little and totally coveting other families' South of the Border bumperstickers.

freakgirl at October 6, 2005 08:10 AM

"pedro has sometheeng for every juan"

yes yes yes they HAVE to go there!!

Soosan at October 6, 2005 08:52 AM

One summer while visiting family in Virginia, my cousins and I took a road trip to Augusta, GA to visit my other cousin...on the way down we passed so many South of the Border billboards and I was completely mesmorized by them...I wanted to go in the worst way. We didn't. I still regret it. I want to ride in a giant sombrero!

Maggie at October 6, 2005 01:38 PM

I was wondering if when they starting filming TAR the bomb blasts in London occurred and that is why they have not left the US yet? I am just not enjoying this season as well as previous seasons.

warren at October 7, 2005 11:44 PM

Maggie, someday that dream will come true.
