Summer Hummer 2014 Update #4 – Showcase, Kissing, and Cooking

Lot of non-USers at Summah Hummah this year! Flags from every country draped across the backdrop. One priceless scene: Bill tearing across the floor, through the ballroom, waving the huge Canadian flag above his head, Louis striking up “Oh Canada,” and a large section of the ballroom standing up to sing along … Russians, French,Continue Reading

Summer Hummer 2014 Update #1 – The Most Boring Update Ever Written. In Tables.

For Summer Hummer I got the brilliant idea to use fancy formatted tables for updates on contestants. I thought tables would look better than my hand-typed lists, with names the spelled wrong, very amateurish.  This is 2014.  There should be tables. So. I spent the entire weekend of Summer Hummer hurling shoes at my laptop,Continue Reading

Summer Hummer 2012 Update #1

On our way to Summa Humma! At the gate here in the Air Tran terminal (merged with Southwest) so we get the hip line of rocking-chairs looking out onto the tarmac, wide leather armchairs, and banks of outlets everywhere. There are *three* women spotted so far buried in “Fifty Shades of Grey.” What is itContinue Reading

Summer Hummer 2012 Update #2

Metallic! First time I’ve seen that. Must have this! I asked if she modeled andContinue Reading

Just finished Champions’ Strictly and WHAT FUN! Louis and Victor – the DJ dream-team, are, as Bill said on the mic, always trying to figure a new way to “bust these guys’ chops” (meaning find some new fun thing to do with their comp music.) So guess what they did tonight? Each couple got theContinue Reading
