Up way early today
I got up early for no other reason than that’s when I woke up. Kaysar’s up also, and has been for some time. I asked him for about the eighth time how to pronounce his name correctly, although I know that it’s (KAY-SER). I think it bugs him that I keep asking, but it makes me laugh. He was up to pray, which is good. I think he has to and I respect that, but I do wonder if he’ll be able to keep it up. Not that he’s not dedicated to his religion, just that “living in the unique world of the Big Brother experience” doesn’t lend itself to keeping any sort of a regular schedule.
Regardless, (KAY-SER) is a cool dude and way laid back. I get the feeling he’s in a sort of “wait-and-see” mode. We could speak in Arabic, although he has no idea I know how. I keep asking him to say things in Arabic like I’m really curious about it, and again laugh to myself. (I’m not picking on (KAY-SER) here, it’s just that he was the only one up when I got up. btw I feel like crap and won’t be getting up early on a regular basis if I can avoid it.)
Some early impressions of the house:
1) It’s colorful, which is nice. From what I saw on the DVDs of past houses, they were kind of bland. At least with the high ceilings here, the colors, and a second story, there are interesting visuals. I fight on a daily basis the urge to jump off the balcony and try to smash the dining room table to pieces with my powerful feet.
2) The “woven” metal wall is interesting, and if they let me, I may tear it down and make something out of it. It’s actually these things that I wonder about most at this point, at least in regard the house itself.
***Like, if I started taking apart the dining room table, they couldn’t run in and stop me, could they? I guess they’d call me into the Diary Room and be like, “hey, stop it jerk,” but what if I was like “nah, I really want to take the table apart,” and kept going? See, I can’t help but think that openly defying the orders of BB in innocent ways (like taking apart tables) would actually be fun for the audience. Sure, the producers say they have the right to boot you for doing stuff like that, but would they? Is it worth risking all this money to find out? What would it take to get them to come in and physically remove me themselves at some point? Sorry about the aside – thinking about things like that are why I can never get anything done on time. Some people call it ADD; some call it a creative brain. (I call it ADD.)***
3) This may seem trivial, but this washer and dryer kick [edited]. If I can figure out how to use them, it’ll be pretty exciting. (I’m about out of space, so I needed something short.)
I’m still evaluating the girls. I’ll give a full report soon.
