It’s taken them 13 days, but Tadhana finally won an immunity challenge. It was stupid to send Laura to Redemption Island. We will see if Aras’ strategy pans out. Probably not. Unless, there’s a big puzzle in which Laura can smoke Brad’s ass.
At Galang, Annoying Laura is surprised to be back at camp. Laura M. looked Aras in the eyes and let him know that about his douchebag move. Aras realizes that he is the ringleader and he’s got no way out, yet.
We’ve heard quite a bit about this season. It’s finally time for it to begin. Returning players will be matched against their loved ones. Gervase, Kat, Rupert, Laura, Colton, Candice, Monica, Tina, Tyson, Aras are starting off with their loved ones at different spots on the island. They are spending the night alone in the jungle with their loved ones.
Eddie feels like he’s a sitting duck unless he wins immunity. He tells Cochran that if he wins immunity, he thinks that his alliance will vote to evict him. That makes Cochran wonder.
At the same time, Dawn is talking to Brenda. They think that they will vote for Cochran if Eddie wins immunity. They have Erik with them and talk about going to the final three. They decide on Cochran. Erik has played Survivor for 70 days. He says that today was one of the hardest days.
Michael is trying to recover from losing Matt. Corinne wants to keep her gay in the game, her words, not mine. Philip sees Corinne talking with others and decides that she needs to leave. He talks with Cochran.
The fans think that they need to win challenges. The vote went down that way. The idol also got flushed out. Reynolds is the man at camp who’s able to get things done as well. Mikael is threatened by this.
Reynolds is an idiot for so easily showing his idol. It has almost no power now. The power of the idol resides in the fact when no one knows about it. Reynolds makes a big deal about playing the game. Shamar starts getting in his face. They start arguing. Shamar starts yelling at everyone. If he was at a bar, he could get kicked out.
As much as I enjoyed using Delicious for a while, I’ve currently moved onto other ways of keeping tabs on what I find. To start off with, I read all of my feeds through Google Reader. My workflow as a freelance writer implies that I have to read copious amounts of published posts in order to flesh out my own. I star anything that I find interesting, but ultimately, this is reserved for work-related content. If I star anything else, it would be lost amidst a lot of other content. Work-related stuff gets starred and unstarred once I’ve addressed/used it.
If I want to mark something to read it later, I use a Firefox extension, which is appropriately named Read It Later. Any links that I find, I either tweet or publish on my blog as asides. I stay away from using my email, because as it is, I already receive between 10-50 emails a day. I don’t want to add more noise. While I used to browse links before, I’ve had less time and the time that I have available now is more focused on getting things done.
If I would still be using Delicious often enough and if I was concerned about it shutting down, I’d switch to Pinboard.
I think that many people seem to forget that links and bookmarks have an inherent shelf-life. If you go through all of your links, you’ll find that some of them from a few years ago aren’t relevant anymore. It’s kind of like tending a garden. If you don’t keep updated on what you find, you’ll end up with nothing a few years later. Maybe this is something that some users enjoy doing, but I’ve got other things to do.
