| The Amazing Race, Tin Man, America's Most Smartest Model

Crazy morning! The trains weren’t running to downtown again, so the station was swamped with shuttlebuses, which made all the regular buses late.

America’s Most Smartest Model
Over on TWOP, a poster asked an interesting question – What if we, the viewers, are being punked by this show?
I think it’s a possibility. Actually, no, I think it’s probable that the producers are laughing at or with the audience at how fake and rigged this show is. And they’ve revealed to the audience to some degree how fake it is. When it started, I was under the impression that the contestants were all (or mostly) working models. But we’ve learned that isn’t true. Some of them are. Andre, at least, has a portfolio online and I think another couple of them did, as well. But enough of them aren’t that the name of the show is pretty misleading. So the question is, next week during the finale, are Ben and Mary Alice going to turn to the cameras and say, “Hahahahahahaha! We got you!”
( And this week’s America’s Most Smartest Model really left me wondering... )

It is Friday, and I am very happy.
Is anyone else planning on watching Tin Man on Sunday?
These pretty pics of fall woods are from a couple of days ago, so take a look asap before their replaced with newer pictures!
New Product! Hershey’s Hot Cocoa Creme Kisses
Even though Redacted isn’t opening in Dallas, probably ever, (and that’s not a bad thing from what I’ve heard – it’s supposed to be pretty awful) Mark Cuban called Bill O’Reilly a moron. That totally makes up for any clunkiness on Cuban’s part on DWTS in my opinion
I’m guessing Grace is Gone won’t open here, either, next Friday, so I don’t have my hopes up. But in much, much better Cusack news ...
In fact, the Best News of All This Friday:
Monday!!! 7:00 p.m. Central, 8:00 p.m. Eastern!!! Joy!!!
( Survivor )
Other happy things:
- We have a puppy in our office today.
- DART customer service just called to answer a request I put in at the beginning of October asking for at least one of the new stops on University to be added to the schedule they publish. After apologizing for taking so long to get back to me, the customer service rep said they would be adding the stops to the schedule the next time it changes and they reprint them. Could be a while, but at least that’s progress.
- I had the most bizarre conversation with a hotel reservations agent ever this morning. I was attempting to cancel a reservation for my boss. Chain reservation agent told me that the name on the res had been changed to Clarabelle Delgado, but that it was still guaranteed to my boss’s credit card and I could not cancel it. Only this Clarabelle Delgado person could. She suggested I call the hotel directly and beg them to cancel it. So I did. The hotel’s res agent told me that the name had never been changed, and furthermore, the reservation had already been canceled just before I called. !!!

I hope you all are having wonderful Fridays as well!
