Seriously, he was so amazing. What a fantastic person, he was so genuinely enthusiastic about helping the contestants. And so committed to making their ‘make-overs’ the best experiences possible. I just love how he embraced Dan’s rock-and-roll side. His haircut is so FAB! And showed Roger a fabulous suit, right off the rack. And ultimately, the best moments were when they all saw their make-over clothes and how small they are!
Last night, Dan protecting his slice of cake was cracking me up. He is so funny – and that cake sitting on the treadmill was classic. It reminded me of that classic high-school project where the kids have to carry an egg around with them, and take care of them like a baby.
I have to admit, I agreed with Ali. The boys’ behavior at that challenge this week came across a bit arrogant. And I didn’t get the concern they had about jeopardizing their friendship by playing against each other. My friends and I would SO have fun piling up on each others tables. They key is you have to be fair, and gang up on everyone equally… play to win! The ‘snacking’ as they played definitely added to that impression. I think in retrospect the guys saw that. Roger, Danny, Mark, Jay, you know I love you guys... am I the only one who always finds myself rooting for the underdog??
And after everything, not only did Ali and Kelly survive another weigh-in – they kicked @ss! They came in 1st and 2nd! How rad is that?! (okay, I know I have pulled ‘rad’ directly out of 1987, but I can’t help it.) I was sad to see Danny go. He’s a good guy, and it’s been so amazing to see his inner growth as well as the outer loss.
Am working at Days today. yay! As you may have noticed, I haven’t been in a lot lately. Which, I must admit, has been nice for me personally. I have been playing with Ben… being my old wanna-be Martha Stewart mom. We had such fun with our Easter crafts!! And Ben has been growing so much lately, He started pre-school!! Can you believe it? It’s so weird to talk about Ben being on Spring Break.
Back to Days – Ari is BACK!!! YAY!!!! You know how much I heart Ari Zuker. She rocks. And we have SO MUCH FUN working together. SO, I can’t wait to hear your feedback of Soul (Sami/Nicole) the sequel. I think Nicole is coming back just in time to remind Sami of who she really is. :)
