    Weeks One and Two
    Week One: June 24 - 30It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way--in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only. - Charles Dickens(A Tale of Two Cities)

    Okay, maybe not... but it was a bit awkward ;) :p :D

    At first, there was much getting to know each other, jediguy asked So, how well DO we know each other?, this was followed by 20 more questions posed by Jjanda_Solo. Not to be outdone, Dark_Lord_Erik began his own series of Questions and Answers, which would actually last the duration of the first two weeks.

    Meanwhile, deltron_zero was the first to discover The Hot Tub.

    No Big Brother game would be complete without one


    Other locations were also soon discovered: The Pool, The Living Room, The Kitchen, Erik's Room, and The Girls' Room.

    Bithysith quickly recovered from her hotty gushing withdrawals by starting a new All-Purpose Hotties Thread

    There was much of this:

    and Silmarillion added some of this:
    [image=http://photos.nenya.net/hotties/orlando.jpg][image=http://photos.nenya.net/hotties/becks.jpg]
    which jediguy 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 Debo in turn battled with some of this:

    Anyway, you get the idea, moving on...

    We quicky learned of Jedi Speewwy's Insomnia and that we can always count on her to keep us entertained at all hours of the night.

    Debo was busy too, he gave us all a tour of where he lives, then asked that we all do the same. He also made us laugh with some of his classic threads and started a [link=http://board/>/>

    aww, thanks April! :D

    of course, it took me 5 edits and it's still a mess, but oh well at least it's done. :D

    Now THAT's some good work.

    And a nice read. I hadn't realized we've done so much.

    Très bien! :)

    Yes, very nice update, Tom.

    Memories of the early days are great.

    Tom, that was magnificent! I don't know how I can possibly match it. :)


    Weeks Three and Four

    Week Three: July 8th - July 14th

    On 7/8 we discovered 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 evicted from the BB house. :(

    Our Day Three Task 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 Second Weekly Task. 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 organizational thread.
    Some highlights included:

    ?wild_karrde's (WT#2) Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers (spoilers for LotR)
    ?Jjanda_Solo's (WT #2) A personal thread rambling on about my relationship with someone else (another JCer no less) (Apparently, an unwanted intruder crashed this thread, but was swiftly delt with by epic)
    ?Missninfan's (WT #2) Personal thread - - - Job problems! Please help! (Day 2) (Debo have her some heart-warming words of congratulations:)
    [image=http://www.americangirl.com/agmg/tinytreasures/images/item_pie.jpg]
    and her (WT #2) Entertainment thread! Big Brother GOSSIP! (Day 4) thread.
    ?Debo's (WT#2) Out Of My Early Years (Day 2) 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 Week Two Nominations.


    Week Four: July 15th - July 21st

    deltron_zero wished his lovely wife Kerr_Plunk a happy birthday on 7/15.

    On that very same day, epic shared the sad news that jediguy had been evicted. We all posted our well-wishes and thoughts.

    On 7/17 epic declared that the Week Three Nominations were in.

    I started my own personal threa

    Thanks you guys... although it took awhile, that was very fun to do, quite a trip down memory lane. :)

    I can't wait to see yours, Jones. :D

    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 one month celebration. (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!

    Weekly Task #3 also continued into week four. Suspects include:

    And the faceless one? ;)
    Steve_Anderson.

    Think you know who murdered epic? Vote in the poll here 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 Points Task 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

    Indeed we rock. :cool:

    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 :)

    Well, if you do get evicted. Really quickly change your colors a bunch of times and take screenshots.

    Whoa, another tour de force. Great work, Meg! Fun to read about the things we've done together. All our stuff should be archived somehow.

    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.

    Life is too short to be a ?droid.?

    Yeah!

    It's okay Tombo go for it anyway. Since your not a "real contestant" you'll never be nominated anyway.
