High point of yesterday for me: A feature on Ripley's Believe It Or Not about the chewing gum ban in Singapore. They even flashed the words "LEGALLY INSANE!" across the screen during the presentation. You said it, people! Haven't laughed this hard in quite a while. :D

And looks like my assessment of Christy the deaf Survivor contestant was off-base. I was taken aback by her outburst on last night's show, and whether it's a case of clever editing or not, we'll never know. She came across as quite a witch, but hasn't been voted off yet, so let's see if the tension will subside in subsequent installments. The women lost their second immunity challenge, but they did win the first reward challenge, crushing the men's egos even further :) Janet was the first female to be sent packing, but it's for the best, 'cos she's obviously not well, and will only hinder the group's efforts to have the upper hand in the competition.

The guys seem to be doing okay this week. And I really like Dave the rocket scientist. Seems like a down-to-earth fellow, and cute too. :)

Also caught the first few minutes of Monk ( couldn't watch it live 'cos I had bible study to attend ). Looks like one of those dramedies, ie. the law enforcement version of Ally McBeal. Tony Shalhoub's frightened-wild-animal look when confronted with dirt is priceless, and so far, the script and plot are pretty unconventional. Will write more once I get round to seeing the rest of it.
