Did you think you'd make the last four? (also did you think you'd make the last three?) (also two?)

    If not, what was your 'measure of success'?

    For my part, I was hopeful of making the last eight.

    No, being a latecomer I didn't expect to last more than a single eviction.

    Nah. As soon as you bested Arlol in the Intruder vote I knew you'd go far.

    Quite honestly, I'm surprised I'm still here. I suspected I might outlast SWA, but that's about it. Final four wasn't on my dream sheet.

    Haha! As in who I thought would be in the final four? You'd probably laugh. :p

    You know what? It just hit me that you might have no idea the subtext of the final four and dream sheet thing...

    It's a college basketball thing. We have the NCAA tournament every year. 64 teams play for the ultimate championship in single-elimination rounds. Anyway, you have brackets (like all playoffs). You go down to the "sweet sixteen", the "elite eight" and the "final four". Then you're at the championship.

    Americans usually have office pools for how things will play out and we all make up our individual brackets and fill out the whole thing up to and including the champion. The person who has the closest bracket to how things actually plays out wins the pot. I call these brackets, my "dream sheet".

    Make sense now?

    I figured as much. You're a super-bright one, Chris and your knowledge of American culture is astounding.

    Yes we shall. In the Orchard perhaps? I have observed dappled sunlight in that place that I am quite certain will delight you until supper.

    Oh wonderful! Brilliant plan, good chap! Perhaps we'll read a few books. Shakespeare, perhaps?
