Apprentice Live Blogging

Got a late start. Missed the project assignments.

9:10 - Hey Net Worth, if the cell phone don't work, pick up a land line. That's a no brainer.

9:15 - Net Worth is making a tabouret. Magna a lazy susan.

9:25 - i'm waiting for Craig to throw a tape dispenser at Kendra. That would be funny.

9:28 - On second thought, that's not a tabouret, it's a credenza.

9:29 - Craig's doin' a verbal smackdown on Kendra. If they lose, Tana is golden in the boardroom. But Kendra has immunity, interesting. Craig has totally missed that key dynamic, which could be his undoing.

9:31 - No, i changed my mind again. Since it has wheels, it's a tabouret. It looks expensive too.

9:33 - Net Worth lost. Back to the ivory tower, boys.

9:35 - Haha, the Staples "Desk Apprentice" is actually for sale. i think it's stupid. Too big for most desks, plus you need to keep the area around it clear so it will spin, thus it takes up even more space.

9:39 - The rainbow room looks suweet. i just heard the male half of the tv audience let out an audible sigh of disappointment when Carolyn revealed she was married.

9:42 - It's traditional at my place to say "Trump" in unison when the boss walks into the boardroom.

9:43 - Can lawyers be creative? Sad to say, in my experience, mostly no.

9:45 - Alex, you're a loser, face it.

9:48 - i love that Jetta commercial where the dude's on a job interview and his car radio comes on accidentally and it's way too loud.

9:50 - Alex is the "hungriest person here." Should have had lunch before he went in. Brin has trouble "taking risks." Might have wanted to keep that to himself. Trump just smelled blood.

9:52 - "Branson went after me, I killed 'im. Cuban went after me, I killed 'im." Whoaaa. Nice trash talkin' Don. What about Martha, i wonder?

9:53 - It's Bren. He didn't want it. i just watched him commit boardroom hari-kari. Talkin' about how he'd rather be home with his kids. i can respect that. Oh well. Another bow-tie bites the dust.

9:59 - In the cab, did i hear Brin clicking his heels together three times?

I didn't see last night's show, but it has been obvious since very early on that Alex is an empty suit. Trump, inexplicably, is blind to this and the guy keeps hanging in there week after week. Brin may have not been the best guy in the world, but he would add more value than Alex.

I can't say I was disappointed with Carolyn being married. I don't consider her to be attractive. I was a little surprised after watching her fawn all over Bill in the 1st season though.

I'm hopelessly addicted to this show. LOVE IT.

I'm not so sure I like Craig. I didn't like that he didn't participate in the focus group research. You can never have too much market research. And who the hell files their folders vertically anyway?!

And I sure as hell am not impressed with Alex. Brin seemed like a really nice guy, but he did seem to be much more exhausted for the past couple of weeks.

I think the one that will come out on top (ultimately) will be Tana. That's my prediction anyway. :)

I hate the show, mostly because Trump is one of the biggest cheats in America. His biz model is basically trailor park chic; buy on credit, hide assets, go bankrupt.

Anyways, the rolling credenze was a BRILLIANT idea. That fucking lazy susan was ultra-lame, and says more about the "judges" than the judged.

It may not strictly be a rolling credenza, but it is most certainly NOT a tabouret. For one thing, it is not low.

yes it was.
