What I should have done (now with outlining!)

ed. note: Check www.hamsterwatch.com today for an extensive interview regarding the execution of Michael's blog and answers to all questions you could possibly have.

Looking back is always easier, but I really meant what I said about not figuring out the game until the last day I was there. As I sit in sequesteration (which I'm told has become quite the buzzword), here's my "if I had a time machine strategy":

1) Not flirt with my hands or mouth.
2) Realize right away I'm not at Club Med.
3) Pretend I was deaf, thus garnering sympathy. (And much humor, as dimwits like Ivette would have no doubt shouted to me, thinking that it would help me hear, regardless of the fact I was allegedly DEAF.)

I think that would've gotten me a free pass and I'd still be there, but assuming Cap'n Short Shorts still executed Operation Predator III, here's the new retro-plan:

4) With Ashlea evicted, go to Eric and claim she was my secret partner.
5) Make him realize that without a secret partner, I'm the last person he should be targeting.
6) Threaten to expose him and Mannie if he doesn't do what I wish with his nominations.
7) Get him to evict Janelle.

What??? Why #7 you say? Two reasons:

a) Janelle and I had made ourselves targets by making out.
b) With Janelle gone, Kaysar could then claim Janelle was his partner.

With nobody to deny our stories of our fake partnerships, Kaysar and I could've had a longtime free pass as the "wild cards". I really don't think there's any way two partners could make it to the end once it's all exposed. They'd have to trade winning HOH every week, and that's just not going to happen.

Of course, it's only now I realize this, when I am living somewhat of the resort life.

Now it's looking rather suspicious. Oh well, props to who made this because it was very convincing! Nice job. I really wanted to believe the producers would have thought of something this cool though. Of course, the entire thing would've hinged on how good of a writer the houseguest was. I didn't know the Hamster Watch website but now that I do, I'll be visiting it often. Maybe that was the goal here? Nice job. It was very entertaining, even if now I feel like a sucker. Don't do that again, jerk.

Whatever is the result of the interview, hamsterwatch didn't have anything to do with this blog. If you read some of the earlier pages, you'll read that someone sent an email to dingo with the same clue (the sky captian ray gun) as was posted here. Hamsterwatch has said all along that it thought the blog was a fake, and I don't think the site would be promoting the interview if it WAS fake, or unless it's just really really interesting. AND....even if it does turn out to be fake (I don't think it is), it was and is fun for me.

Personally, I am not pointing fingers at Hamsterwatch.com. I am pointing out the obvious... if this was real, why would CBS not be the first to explain all on their website. Also.. CBS isn't allowing Michael to give interviews. If they were, I am sure their network news shows would be first in line.

Finally another post from Michael! I never doubted this blog from the beginning. His early post when he described the good cop - bad cop producer reaction after they discovered the blog was hilarious. I laughed till my stomach hurt. I totally applaud the producers for making the best of the situation and letting it continue.

However...easy on all the edits, Please!! and Will you publish all the edited stuff at some point. I'd love to see them as michael first wrote them.

Michael did give an interview to the Today Show. Julie Chen conducted it. It was the day after his eviction.

I don't see anything on hamster watch, is it posted yet?

I think you mean the Early Show with Julie Chen...The Today Show is on another network.

gamer3, I meant specific interviews regarding this blog.

Hmm-nothing on Hamsterwatch,yet. Although I still believe this is fake,I would like to see what they have to say. I do agree with you,Oz, that it would seem more likely for CBS to have an explaination (or at least a link to this blog from their website)for all this,which,again leads me to think this is fake. I mean why would CBS allow this if it was not their idea?

It's up now. Check it out and appreciate this blog for what it was.... a fake!

4:19 PM  
Blogger Dennis said...

Oh, well. It was fun while it lasted and very convincing, but I expect the 10-12k traffic will die off now that it's out.

And glad I never stated a firm opinion one way or the other. ;>

Well, I AM somewhat disappointed, because I think it would have been a terrific "twist" to punch up what is turning out to be a fairly boring year. But it's still funny, and I will be continuing to read! :)

Blogger troublemaker said...

I knew it! Well,I'm glad the cat is finally out of the bag! I hope Michael does get a chance to read all the things everyone wrote to support him-you guys really have a lot of fire! Hope nobody is too disappointed,though.

Now that I know this is fake I might jump off a building.

Wait a second... yep, I'm over it.

I believe this blog was real until michael got evicted. how could this fan have known that michael spoke arabic. He called it long before michael talked arabic on the feeds. It was michael and this is how BB6 planned it. they would let it go as far as it would benefit them. Then disown it when it became a thorn in their side.

You can even see the changes in the writing style now from before.

The hoax is the claim that this was fake all along.

if you red mikes bio on his business site, it says he speaks arabic. so anyone could have known.

What if the blog's not fake? What if the hamsterwatch interview was *gasp* a brilliantly hatched plot by CBS executives to bury the truth about Michael's implanted wireless connection and the fully wired keyboard tattooed on his butt!

Hello? I can't believe some people still think this is real! Wake up! Michael was not blogging from in the house. He was evicted-the show will go on without him(an apparently,so will this blog)
