    the survivor premiere was on last night 

    tony loves “survivor”. i dont think he’s missed one episode. ashley was sitting on his lap being cool. the phone was ringing off the hook and i was rocking in the lazy boy as we all watched the first episode like a little family.

    if you didnt see it, the people got to pick two teams. a lady who said she was 53 and a man who was 55 picked teams out of the other 14 or 16 “tribespeople”. i dont remember how many there were.

    the lady picked what seemed to be nice people. the man picked what ended up being pretty, fratboy and sorority girl “athletic” people. so you had the beautiful people against the regular people.

    i wont tell you who got kicked off because they’re gonna show a special “encore presentation” tomorrow night.

    but i think it was a brilliant move for cbs to have them pick themselves because at first i thought i was gonna root for the hot babes, but it turned out that i ended up rooting for the regular, non-fratboy team.

    ashley watched them try to scale a cliff in search for water and she said, “at this point they would have voted to kick me off.”

    shes not the survivor-type, in fact at 1:30am they woke me up as i slept in the guest wing, and asked me if i wanted to make a mcdonalds run.

    i like survivor. ive learned a lot about life through survivor. sometimes when i come home and look through my cupboards and think, “shit, i dont have anything to eat,” i think about survivor and think, “hell, those people could live off of what i have in here for a week,” and then i put something good together.

    of the new survivors, ashley thought the used-car salesman was a cheeseball. she thought the tommy lee skateboarding bartender was an idiot, and thought the preacher was a dumbass.

    i liked the big black guy the most.i hope he wins.

    well i hope i have entertained you today. and tomorrow we’ll see what happens.

    happy friday, america,

    Lefty Tony
