Today's photo is from Christmas 2009. I had read about Valentino The Last Emperor on my favorite gossip site (Lainey Gossip). She had talked about how amazing the movie was so I rented it and took it to my parents' house the night before our wedding. My sister, Teenie ended up watching it with me and eventually my brother, Bobby joined in. We loved it and couldn't stop quoting it. Once Christmas came I decided to get them each their own copy of it and thankfully one of them gave it to me. It was pretty funny to see us all get it as a gift so we decided to get a picture for fun.
Anyone else want to get in on photo Thursday? Post the link for it in the comment section.
Today's topic is Top Two Dream Vacations so head on over to Taylor's blog to get in on the fun.
1. Disney World
Even though I've been there several times I can never get enough of Disney World. It really is my happiest place on earth. My main reason for putting it at #1 though is because we went there on our honeymoon this past October. It was by far the best vacation of my life and I would love to relive it all over again.
After taking 8 years of French in school I realized how much I fell in love with France. My dream has always been to move there for 6 months - a year. Now that I'm married I know that won't be happening anytime soon but I'm hoping we can try it once we retire.
Now onto my thoughts on who I think will go from the Villains tribe on the next Survivor.
Coach - Oh Coach your man crush on Boston Rob is so sad. He was hanging on Boston Rob's every word as if it was God talking. For now I think the dragon slayer will be safe especially since he had a good showing in the reward challenge against Colby.
PS Can you believe our "showmance" this season could be Coach and Jerri?
Courtney - Courtney annoys me to no end and it's only the first episode. She's the smallest girl this season which makes her a good candidate to go home next episode.
Danielle - I wasn't a fan of Danielle on her season (mainly because I was a big Terry fan). I do think she could go far this season since she might fly under the radar for a while. It will be interesting to see if she aligns with Russell.
Jerri - Jerri will never win Survivor since she takes the game way too personally. I don't see her going right away but I also don't think she will be around for very long.
Parvati - Even though Parvati is a part winner I think she has a good shot winning the million again. She's a smart player who can go far in this game. I'm guessing she'll team up with Amanda and Cirie come the merge.
Randy - I don't think Randy is long for this game. I'm actually surprised he was even brought back. My guess is that he was added once they realized Richard Hatch couldn't make the trip. I had heard that Shane (who didn't love him with his Blackberry made of wood) was going to be coming back but was bumped for Russell. I would of much rather seen Shane instead of Randy. I'm going to say that Randy could be on the chopping block this week.
Boston Rob - Like Candice on the Hero tribe Boston Rob is my pick to win it on the Villain tribe. Even though he's a huge threat he's so smooth that they won't get rid of him anytime soon. I know they showed him passing out in next episode but I'm guessing it isn't as bad as they made it seem.
Russell - Russell was my favorite player last season (although I hated him at first) and I think he was robbed by a bitter jury. However, I didn't get a good feeling about Russell from the first episode. They focused way too much time on him which I'd like to think was because he's the freshest in our minds and played the game so crazy. He's already making multiple alliances like he did the last time but I don't know how easy it will be for him to get rid of his targets this time. If Parvati expresses her concerns she had this past episode he could certainly be gone next episode.
Sandra - I'm not a Sandra fan so I'm hoping she goes soon but I don't see that happening especially if she tries to align with Boston Rob. Even though she's a past winner I think she's safe for now.
Tyson - Tyson certainly provides us with some entertaining soundbites (like most of the Villains). I saw an interview with him where he said he would be playing a different game this time around that put him more in the background. If that's the case I think he could go far in the game.
Who could go next?
Courtney, Randy or Russell
Who will go?
I'm going with Randy since he told Boston Rob he would never get the fire started and that they should just give up. Also he doesn't really offer anything in challenges.
Who do I want gone?
Courtney since I find her extremely annoying.
Any thoughts on what I have posted? Do you agree or disagree and who would you like to see go next week?
Also head on over to Couchtime where Jill has posted a great recap of the first episode of Survivor season 20.
The premiere of Survivor's 20th season aired last night and I have to say I think this is going to be a season to remember. Since I started it last season I'd like to continue posting each week who I think will be voted off next and who I want to see voted off next. I've decided since there are a large amount of players still in the game I will take each team one at a time and chose a player from each who I think will be gone next week.
First up the Heroes Tribe....
Amanda - I know Amanda is a fan favorite for some but I really cannot stand her. I don't know what it is but I think it was probably her two tribal council performances. However, she has been able to get to the finals twice. Right now it looks like she is aligned with Cirie which is good since she is such a good game player. Right now I say Amanda is safe.
Candice - Candice is my pick to make it all the way. She doesn't have anyone to align with and I think that may work to her advantage. I'm thinking she'll fly under to radar while the other big players try to take each other out. Come the merge I see Russell trying to align with her.
Cirie - Cirie is one of my favorite players in Survivor and I would love to see her win this game. However she may not be able to play her nice girl/stay in the background game this time around since everyone is on to her. I'd also say she could go home next week since her name was tossed around by Tom and JT.
Colby - Like Candice he doesn't have anyone on his tribe to align with from his previous season. For now I think he's safe since there are two previous winners on his tribe but once they get closer to the merge he needs to watch out.
P.S. How sad was it for Colby to get his butt whipped by Coach?
James - James is another favorite of mine and even though he made some stupid moves in his previous seasons I'd like to think that he has learned from them. For the time being he should be safe especially since he's the biggest guy there and they will need him for challenges.
JT - I have a feeling that JT is not long for this game. Unless he gets to the finals with another winner he'll never win the million this time around. Right now he seems to be safe since Tom has a bigger target on his back per Cirie.
Rupert - Rupert what happened to you?!? You used to be my favorite Survivor but now your head has gotten so big that I can't really stand you. I loved Rupert but game play wise he's never been good. He just doesn't have what it takes to win Survivor since he's can't play the game somewhat dirty. Now that he's got an injured foot I wouldn't be surprised if he goes soon.
Stephanie - I loved Stephanie on her original season but then again who didn't. Everyone loves the underdog and Stephanie definitely was her season. Unfortunately she came back a second time and became a gigantic bitch. I couldn't stand her by the end of Guatemala and was glad to see her loose to Danni. So far she didn't seem too bad last night and I hope we get to see the Stephanie we loved in Palau. I do think she could be in danger though since she is aligned with Tom and probably the strongest female there.
Tom - Tom is another favorite of mine. I loved him in Palau and I hope to love him again this season. Unfortunately he's a past winner and Cirie already has a target on him. He could very well go next week especially if Cirie has her way.
Who could go? Cirie, Rupert, Stephanie, or Tom
Who will go? I'm going with Rupert since he's injured and and an easy target to get rid of if they have to go back to tribal council again. Also since Rupert is so well liked he'll be tough to beat in the final.
Who do I want gone? At this moment probably JT since he's already won and he's not really a favorite of mine. It's so hard to pick someone you want gone when you like almost everyone in one way or another.
Sugar: Sugar sweetheart you were just too annoying for this game. You didn't seem to help much in the challenge with the puzzle and then you annoyed poor Colby and followed him around like a lost puppy dog. While I give you credit for ditching your top during the reward challenge once Sandra unhooked it you just weren't long for this game. See you on the finale!
Well that's it for the Hero tribe. I'm going to work on the Villain tribe this weekend and will hopefully have it posted soon.
Any thoughts on the Hero tribe or the episode from last night? Do you agree with my pick for next week? Who do you want to see gone and who do you think will go next week?
Also make sure you head over to Turn On My TV to read Taylor's fantastic recap of the Survivor season 20 premiere.
Hi my name is Meghan (aka Mrs. D) and thanks for stopping by. I’m a 20-something from the east coast who has a slight obsession with celebrity gossip, coffee, and shopping. I also enjoy cooking (or at least trying to) and watching lots of movies and tv shows with my husband and cats. Speaking of my husband I married a truly amazing man (Chuck) on October 10, 2009. He’s everything and more that I could want for a husband and a truly amazing person who I strive to be like everyday. I hope you’ll stick around for this crazy journey of mine where I’ll go from crazy, wedding obsessed bride to hopefully a normal and calm wife.
