Weird, wild stuff & Survivor: All Stars Wrap-Up
Every time I eat Sonic late at night (late at night being less than two hours before bedtime), I end up having the oddest dreams...and last night was certainly no exception. I had the oddest dream that I was somehow back in some huge chapel, where all kinds of people I knew back from the Wesley Foundation had all gathered there together for a dramatic presentation of the Crucible. I remember walking in and seeing Enoch handing out bulletins and introducing him to my wife, who sat near me the entire time but I could never see her, if that makes any kind of sense (of course it doesn't you say--it was a dream!) I remember Enoch asking me if I'd be around and I said, I want to because this is home and I want to stay here. (I'd been doing some heavy thinking on where I am and where I want to be in my life yesterday and so the subconsious was probably working overtime on that one). I also remember seeing Barry looking around and I think maybe he was the director of the show, getting over those opening night butterflies. In some ways it was like we had a contempory worship service before the play began...but I woke up before the play actually started. Which is a shame really as I think it might have been pretty good.
As for Survivor: All Stars....my bold prediction from last week came to pass-Shii-Ann got the boot. The woman is not all that bright...she started playing the game too well, too late. She may have had some good alliances built up or sewed some seeds that would have led to a split in the voting, but than at tribal council she opens her mouth and burns every bridge she's built. Oh, I know who the real power player is and I'm gonna write it down and expose them for all of you to see! Also, I'm gonna shake it up...I hate to tell you kid, but the way to win this one is to fly under the radar. And take Boston Rahb to the finals with you--he's got three people who won't vote for him on the jury so far (and I can't wait for the reunion show now that we saw Boston Rahb bragging to his brother how he screwed Lex over and thinks its funny...NOW that's good television!). One more and you're guaranteed a million bucks...which is why, unless they get rid of Amber, she could do it. She can fly under the radar and come off like Tina Wesson--she didn't piss anyone off but she played the game. She knew how to build an alliance and how to stick with it to win a million bucks...which that could be interesting to see how it all plays out.
