    I've been on a Project Runway S17 binge and haven't had time for MCAU in the last few days, but man oh man. Sounds like Simon and Tessa will be my light in the darkness through this! LOL it almost does, doesn't it? Almost. (OK who am I kidding? It totally does.)

    What Are We Currently Reading?

    Congratulations, sir/madam! I read it too, in 2012 or so. It's so dense, but I did mostly enjoy it. Just finished Delta of Venus by Anais Nïn. I don't read erotic lit that often (unless I know it's going to be good quality, which it's often not), but as it's by Anais, I gave it a go. It certainly was… interesting. Last night I started Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade by Diana Gabaldon. It's quite literally been ten years since I read the first volume of the Lord John series, so it's high time I continue!
  3. You're correct. He said on IG that he's having a break this year. It said somewhere (maybe Sasukepedia) that he was cut from the broadcast. ☹️
  4. Hey that's right, I didn't even remember Ian! From the original Wolfpack only Ian and Meagan are competing this year (or so I understand), so maybe they just haven't deemed it necessary to mention it. e: Still doesn't explain cutting Ian off completely, though.

    Me too. No matter what the dish is, there seems to be a puree involved. I get that it goes with a lot of things (and it's probably fairly quickly made, dunno, never made one 😄), but I just wanna see something… different. Different and innovative. … first I thought for the most of the season that Derek was gay, and now I learn that it's 'naturopathy', not 'neuropathy'. Such a thing as a 'neuropathy student' likely does not exist now that I think about it, but that's literally how I've always read it! Oops. Swiftly from medical to pseudo-medical. 😄
  6. That one guy's gimmick was that he had a lot of cousins? … okay then. Yamauchi, y u do this to me? 😭 I identified strongly with that Tamara Kirk girl because that's exactly what would happen to me on a ninja course. I didn't like Grant at first (and I still think Island Ninja is a stupid name), but he's kinda grown on me. I surprised myself by being happy he finished. Aw. My cat's my best friend too, Jackson! ❤️ I'm so glad he did well! LOL if there's one backstory I can get behind, it's that one. That's exactly how I felt tbh. Glad I'm not alone. 😄

    The 'other two blondes' excelled again. Is it just me or this just a really weird top bunch. ?? When they decided Christina would do the main, I was immediately like "I don't think that's a good idea" - I just don't remember her really wow'ing me at any point… and then she went and won! (But still didn't wow me.) I think we need this quote now more than ever: (I still love him, though.)

    True, very true. I'm just extra angry at Tim because he got the protein he wanted AND had the most time AND cooked something familiar to him, and still managed to f it up. Derek was of course batshit crazy as usual, but at least he tried something new and took risks, even if they always didn't pay off. And I like crazy. ❤️

    Well, so much for my daydream of Derek & Simon finale. 😭 lkdjlkasjkdsls WHY IS TIM STILL THERE????? *deep breaths*
  10. I kinda agree, but then, if they last less than 30 seconds in the qualifiers, they're likely not gonna get very far in the city finals anyway. So it's just like… whatever. I actually found it quite refreshing to see new faces in the Tower. Maybe it's just because I find so many veteran ninjas annoying (I'm not sure why). One of the veterans I don't find annoying is Jamie and of course they WWWA'd his run. 😑 I, too, think there was something off with that Mega Wall. Najee got up last year, so why wouldn't he be able to get up this year, after yet another year of training?

    Not sure if MCAU is the right show to preach about food waste. (If they do something reasonable with their food waste, then I stand corrected.) I legit can't believe Anushka missed a whole page on her "apple pie" recipe and yet somehow pulled it off. Tim was of course outstanding. 🙄 Another thing I can't believe. I've got nothing against her, just that… in the beginning she really gave me the vibe that she would be booted off sooner rather than later. Shows what I know, I guess! Couldn't the final top 2 be Derek and Simon? Pretty please? With sugar on top? Oh well. A girl can always dream.
  12. I'll finish the sentence for you: ... and the ones doing it improperly make it look fucking impossible. :D
  13. Geoff! Jessie! Meagan! ❤️ I was watching Geoff's run through my fingers because I was so afraid he would fall… and he fell exactly where I was most afraid he would. OH GEOFF! 😭 Other bummers of the night: Sean Bryan winning Power Tower and Lance Pekus finishing Mega Wall. (Once again I'm a bad person, I know.) Very happy for Zimmerman, but god, they're milking the "mom" thing for everything they've got. Ugh. SWEDISH NINJA! Go neighbour! Israel Del Rio must be the coolest name ever. LOL @ Jake Murray & Grant McCartney… even though I'm not the biggest fan of Jake's antics. But he's got dem skillz, so I can forgive him. So many interesting-looking runs I would've liked to see that got the WWWA treatment. 😞 Is Isaac Caldiero competing this year, does anybody know?

    Interestingly, they even sell Vegemite in Finland! (I've never tasted it though because it sounds a bit gross to me… but perhaps I should? 😄) I am, however, ashamed to admit that I'd never even heard of Milo. I didn't watch the episode yet so I had to google it. Googling it just raised more questions. Some kind of a malt… cocoa… thing??

    Such a weird thing to say about someone who's clearly not on drugs (as if any of them even could be without being booted off in a nanosecond)! Maybe he has a history of drugs? (Not judging or anything, just curious as always.) ...OR the person was just being mean for the sake of being mean and people like me are just drawing conclusions. 🙄 How beautifully said. ❤️ Bummed that Sandeep had to go. 😞 The worst time ever to injure your back.
