If I Was on Survivor I'd Lose

After leading all season in the Survivor Fantasy league, and royally kicking Aaron's (shoefly's) butt, I lost my 1st place standing over the finale. And why? Because I am no good at saying who is going to go out when and that's the only way to make points on the last episode.

I know that no one reading this will really care about the points I got on fantasy league which really are no good to me except as bragging rights over Aaron, but I wanted to beat Aaron to the punch of saying I lost my first place standing. Yes, Aaron I did, but I was in the lead the whole game and I kicked your butt so whatever. I admit I am no good at predicting who will win. I wanted Sandra to win, but I thought she would go out early and I did think Jon would make it to the final two. If Lill had been smart she would have taken Jon and I would have made more points. However the fact that Jon got no money out of the game makes me EXTREMELY happy.

So I came in second. Oh well....what place were you Aaron? Oh that's right we don't like to talk about that. Hmph!

I was in 5th place this season. Admittedly, you spanked me. However, you managed to leave out that i placed 1st last season, and kicked you butt in a very royal and ancient fashion.

Anyway, i'll give you your props, because you led all season long and only through a miracle was Chris able to overtake you (barely), in the final episode.

Did you like my list of 16 all-stars for the next season? I wonder if Rupert will be on that show. If so, then he probably left for another island immediately following the recent taping of the final for this season. I think Rupert was my all-time favorite, although I liked Tom the goat farmer a lot too, and also Alicia, the workout trainer. I actually enjoyed Jon as the villain too. You must admit, he was entertaining to watch. Some of the things he said about women were stunning. I think he must have had his tongue in his cheek, but if not, then he's a pretty sorry person. I know you hated him. I think it was an act though, and all for shock entertainment.

For the record, here are the final standings:

1st, 4210, turn it off (chris)
2nd, 4186, nuts to you (nuala/eecs)
3rd, 3430, henrymorgan (diane)
4th, 3606, yo-ho-hos (tiffany)
5th, 2259, the discharged sea men (aaron/eecs)
6th, 2024, the lightning five
7th, 1792, what is for lunch (jennifer/eecs)
8th, 1123, aquabeard (lorie/eecs)

Also, i may have lost, however i had the most creative team name. It was based on the pirate theme. Some sea men make nautical blunders and get discharged, you know.

Jon probably did say things for the shock value, but I hated him none the less. I mean lying about your grandmother dying is just low and unnecessary.

But he was fun to hate and root against.

I did like your list. However I don't know everyone as I haven't watched all the seasons. I am looking forward to the All Star. I do hope Rupert is there. He was definately the best.

And as for your creative team name all I have to say is Nuts to You....

Your Vik's Chaat Corner link is bad. It's absolutely unacceptable!!!!!!!!!!!

I was thinking, both of our team names are actually very closely related, because sea men come from nuts.

Well what link would you have me use. It's not like they actually have a site!

Posted by: nuala on December 19, 2003 06:30 PM

at least it's not a dead link, like the one you're currently providing...

Posted by: shoefly on December 22, 2003 03:33 PM

I didn't know it was a dead site. Why didn't you say so. It wasn't when I FIRST linked it. I'll put up the new one.
