There's not one good Mexican restaurant in this town.

As requested, I set up a new blog for the entire story, Life in the Valley. Now, someone with legal expertise (*ahem* Arabella?) - can you tell me what legal jargon I should put in the sidebar to prevent copycats? And also, someone with CSS smarts (*ahem* Nancy?), can you tell me how to fix the margins so the sidebar isn't so prominent?

Now, on to some business... Nnnenna (left) got kicked off! But guess what! She's boring! I like Danielle (right). She's my new fave.


I don't see why she has to quit being so 'country.' Giselle doesn't have to quit being so foreign. What - if you're American you have to sound like Matt Lauer or else. Or else what? I don't get it. Also, any African American readers? I think I've heard that it's kind of trendy to have a gap in your teeth. And bow-legs - or is that old school? What was that line from SaltNPeppa? Anyway, I liked Danielle's gap before it was fixed. I'm wondering if this is Tyra's personal preference, as if the gap was too ghetto for her, while the rest of us thought it was unique and interesting. Can anyone shed light?

In Chaucer's time the gap was a sign of lechery.

I'm glad Nnenna got the boot too. I thought the others have consistantly showed improvement while Nnenna really didn't.

I like Danielle too, but my favourite is Joanie. She's awesome.

Forgot to mention this: Yay, you put your story on one blog. Awesome! I can't wait to read it in one shot, when I get a spare second to myself.

Coolness, I can't wait to read the story in one shot.

I will check into your question and get back to you, madame.

And I have not one clue what show you are talking about.

I think you can put one of those Creative Commons Licenses on your blog (I have one on mine; there are a few different varieties). TB had one on hers, too.

I was tired of Nnenna ("Suck it up, John!"), too, but I was shocked she went home (especially over Furonda!). I like Joanie and Danielle, and I like that they're friends. I'm just glad Danielle didn't close the gap completely - it really is her trademark. Just like Cindy Crawford and the mole.

I don't watch it. Sorry. I like the mermaid lady. Do mermaids HAVE bow legs??

I don't watch it either, but when Lauren Hutton (model from way back and very gorgeous) had a space between her teeth, no one cared. Probably because she was white and had a cap she used when she was doing certain gigs.

1. I just tossed up a "┬ęCopyright; Name Date" on mine. I have no idea if that's enough. But at least it's documented. I'm open for suggestions too.

2. So does this mean you're going to CONTINUE the story?

3. I'm glad Nnn got kicked off. She was seriously annoying me with the whole boyfriend situation.

4. I really like Danielle too. And I DONT understand the changes they made her go through. I loved the gap (Madonna had one) and I thought her accent kink of cute.

See? I have a serious side, too.

That said, and with the caveat that I'm not an intellectual property lawyer, the copyright suggestions given are good ones, particularly "┬ęCopyright; Name Date" (you can see this form on the copyright page of books). You're basically giving notice to the world that this is your work.

And I think gap teeth are kinda sexy.

Lauren Hutton, anyone? She might be aging at this point, but she was amazing as a youngster. Love the gap.

Yes, gap is good. We're a couple of weeks behind in the southern hemisphere. Cannot believe the gap's gone. Is it true? Hello...Madonna? She has a gap. If you can fit a coin between your front teeth you will become fabulously wealthy, everyone knows that. Is Mollie Sue still in? She is stunning. I adore her hair (of course). If she's still in now, she's the winner. Do you think Nigel sleeps with at least one contestant per cycle (as in season, not menstrual)?

I have a gap due to having 4 molars removed to make more room in my mouth when I got braces. Now I have a permanent brace to close it up and I can't spit water between my front teeth anymore.

Also, Creative Commons is the way to go for licensing. www.creativecommons.org

PD, the gap's not totally closed, but just ever-so-slightly spaced. Mollie Sue's hair. Oh you found my weekness. I'm afraid mine's too wiry for that. I'd look like one of those scratchy doormats. But I'm so tempted to try it anyway.

I think Nigel sleeps with all of the girls every week. I think they should make a show about that and shoot it direct to video and send it directly to my house.

teebs, I'm sorry. When my teeth grew together and I couldn't spit out the front two it was a really sad day.
