    Weeks One and Two
    [blockquote]Week One: June 24 - 30 Okay, maybe not... but it was a bit awkward ;) :p :D

    At first, there was much getting to know each other, [b]jediguy[/b] asked [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7534155&replies=10][b][color=purple]So, how well DO we know each other?[/b][/color][/link], this was followed by [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7537450&replies=52][b][color=purple]20 more questions[/b][/color][/link] posed by [b]Jjanda_Solo[/b]. Not to be outdone, [b]Dark_Lord_Erik[/b] began his own series of [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7534143&replies=95][b][color=purple]Questions and Answers[/b][/color][/link], which would actually last the duration of the first two weeks.

    Meanwhile, [b]deltron_zero[/b] was the first to discover [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7534744&replies=276][b][color=purple]The Hot Tub[/b][/color][/link].

    [blockquote][image=http://www.thelakefronthouse.com/images/hot-tub.jpg]
    [i]No Big Brother game would be complete without one[/i][/blockquote]

    Other locations were also soon discovered: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7573970&replies=679][b][color=purple]The Pool[/b][/color][/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7629740&replies=695][b][color=purple]The Living Room[/b][/color][/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7642322&replies=61][b][color=purple]The Kitchen[/b][/color][/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7640412&replies=35][b][color=purple]Erik's Room[/b][/color][/link], and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7643868&replies=43][b][color=purple]The Girls' Room[/color][/b][/link].

    [b]Bithysith[/b] quickly recovered from her hotty gushing withdrawals by starting a new [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7542642&replies=81][b][color=purple]All-Purpose Hotties Thread[/b][/color][/link]

    There was much of this:
    [image=http://www.jude-law.net/gallery/judecc.jpg] [image=http://pobox.upenn.edu/~davidtoc/images/ck.body2.jpg]
    and [b]Silmarillion[/b] added some of this:
    [image=http://photos.nenya.net/hotties/orlando.jpg][image=http://photos.nenya.net/hotties/becks.jpg]
    which [b]jediguy[/b] combatted with a lot of this:
    [image=http://www.millaj.com/pics/wallpaper87.jpg] [image=http://www.maximonline.com/girls/amanda_marcum/gm_l4.jpg]
    which [b]Debo[/b] in turn battled with some of this:
    [image=http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:Bx2vTGLAnhoC:www.rasscass.com/kelly-grace.gif] [image=http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:9QlIlDFu8SsC:www.kinoweb.de/film2002/Others/pix/to01_L.jpg]
    Anyway, you get the idea, moving on...

    We quicky learned of [b]Jedi Speewwy[/b]'s [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7548814&replies=32][b][color=purple]Insomnia[/b][/color][/link] and that we can always count on her to keep us entertained at all hours of the night.

    [b]Debo[/b] was busy too, he gave us all [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7605429&replies=29][b][color=purple]a tour of where he lives[/b][/color][/link], then asked that we all do the same. He also made us laugh with some of his [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7557674&replies=12][b][color=purple]classic threads[/b][/color][/link] and started a [link=http://board>

    Weeks Three and Four

    Week Three: July 8th - July 14th

    On 7/8 we [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7533730&page=1]discovered[/link] that we had failed the first weekly task. Imagine what it would have been like if epic had asked us 10 questions each, as originally planned? :p

    Other sad news came our way when we learned that our comrade BISMARCK had been [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7765536&replies=10]evicted[/link] from the BB house. :(

    Our [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7683301&replies=59]Day Three Task[/link] was especially fun! We were asked to create our own superhero, complete with backstory and visual accompanyment. The winners were:

    ?Debo's Take It Easy Man
    [image=http://www.hatsinthebelfry.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/b636thumb.jpg]
    ?deltron_zero's Glam Man
    [image=http://sgtpepper64.homestead.com/files/spandex.JPG]
    ?and JediSenoj's Rubber Ducky
    [image=http://www.middlebury.edu/~store/images2000/children/ducky1.jpg]


    On 7/9 epic had us begin our [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7784386&replies=7]Second Weekly Task[/link]. We were required to create 7 threads a day, each falling under a specific category. If all of us participated, a bonus would be awarded. Senoj started the accompanying [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7784508&replies=148]organizational thread[/link].
    Some highlights included:

    ?wild_karrde's [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7790385&replies=14](WT#2) Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers (spoilers for LotR)[/link]
    ?Jjanda_Solo's [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7790198&replies=14](WT #2) A personal thread rambling on about my relationship with someone else (another JCer no less)[/link] (Apparently, an unwanted intruder crashed this thread, but was swiftly delt with by epic)
    ?Missninfan's [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7804234&replies=23] (WT #2) Personal thread - - - Job problems! Please help! (Day 2)[/link] (Debo have her some heart-warming words of congratulations:)
    [image=http://www.americangirl.com/agmg/tinytreasures/images/item_pie.jpg]
    and her [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7846612&replies=34](WT #2) Entertainment thread! Big Brother GOSSIP! (Day 4)[/link] thread.
    ?Debo's [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7811721&replies=12](WT#2) Out Of My Early Years (Day 2)[/link] where he posted an adorable picture of himself and a childhood friend:
    [image=http://home.mn.rr.com/rsafaya/fazant.jpg]

    Our most difficult daily task to date was posted on 7/11. We were required to go shopping for a list of items, but had to do it with EXACTLY 20 million dollars. Jjanda started another organizational thread, where Debo strongly lead us to victory. Some of our more zany items suggested were:
    [image=http://www.ASO.com/aircraft/60792/ext-1.jpg]
    a Learjet

    and
    [image=http://realestate.escapeartist.com/data/properties/images/1868-1135-1R8SH2N78D.jpg]
    a castle

    On 7/11 epic announced the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7822510&replies=10]Week Two Nominations[/link].


    Week Four: July 15th - July 21st

    deltron_zero wished his lovely wife Kerr_Plunk a [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7877970&replies=6]happy birthday[/link] on 7/15.

    On that very same day, epic [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7879715&replies=17]shared the sad news[/link] that jediguy had been evicted. We all posted our well-wishes and thoughts.

    On 7/17 epic declared that the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7913129&replies=19]Week Three Nominations were in[/link].

    Week five in Review: July 21-27
    ?He just keeps going, and going, and going??
    In reference to the Energizer Bunny and also wild_karde?s miraculous feat in escaping eviction three weeks in a row. ;)

    To go this week was Jjanda. We miss you! :(

    Ah yes. Finally, the 9 Big Brother housemates left had made it to the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=8046856&start=8052241] one month celebration.[/link] (Thread started by deltron.) Just think! Only two months to go for some of the Big Brother House mates. Where has the time gone?

    Speaking of time? it was also time for week 4 nominations sadly. Nominated were wk, Senoj, and Missy. Who will leave the house? We?ll find out Monday morning!

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7897450&replies=25]Weekly Task #3[/link] also continued into week four. Suspects include:

    Think you know who murdered epic? Vote in the poll [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7986222&replies=21]here[/link] started by Erik. :D

    Many threads were created this week, so I can?t link to them all! But to summarize?

    Epic commanded us to state our hopes for the future! And so we did. It was quickly clear that we all had many different dreams and aspirations?

    Missy stated that she wanted to marry Joe (Remember to post the wedding pictures for us when you do! :D ).

    Senoj declared that she was determined to get into Columbia University. In three years we?ll see if she achieves this lofty goal? ;)

    Erik, on a lighter note, said he was determined to see people live happily on Mars? and also made the point that he wanted clothes that washed themselves. I think we all do. Laundry= yuck. :(

    Deltron wished that he could find a way to buy a larger home to raise his children. Debo responded that he had been fortunate to come from a wealthy family and live in a large home. However, ?unlike most of these rich people, you actually have a heart of pure gold, Tom.? Indeed you do. :)

    Bithy said she would love to write a book and one day swim with dolphins. Wonderful goals if I say so myself. :D

    Sil expressed her wishes to find a guy? and of course drink more delicious beer!

    Wk stated that he wants his job to be a success. We all do too and are rooting for you, wk! He also expressed his desire to get drunk this weekend. Maybe Sil and wk should get together at the pub? They?d both have a grand time, eh? ;)

    Speewwy declared that she wanted to be on Broadway. I love musicals too! We hope your dream comes true. :)

    Debo hopes to break away from the monotonous workman?s life. So you should! Be yourself, and live your life to the fullest. Life is too short to be a ?droid.?

    The [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7897662&replies=22]Points Task[/link] is also being worked on this week. So far, Sil has done a fabulous job with the banner! Hopefully, the new look designed for the BB forum w

    Ack! I just realized that if I get evicted Monday morning, and we also reach the 3000 points mark on Monday, I won't be able to share in the prize after doing all this work. :(

    Ah well. Most of the tasks were a lot of fun... so I guess they were a reward in themselves. :D :)

    And -- hee hee, a nice surprise awaited me at the bottom of your post: my own mug staring at me! :D

    Jones -- excellent! A nice read.
