Dear Diary,

Tonight I met a real dick. Oops, I forgot this article needs to be suitable for children of all ages. Tonight I met a man named Evil Dick. I can’t quite put my finger on why, but I can’t get enough of him and what he’s doing on Big Brother 8. I’m so hooked; I searched out a website,, and now I know everything as it happens, play by play! Yahoo!

I miss Dick. I don’t know what happened. I saw him three times a week and then he just disappeared. I tried to find out why I wasn’t able to see him anymore on but they aren’t tracking his movements 24/7 anymore. I did read a very cool article about the finale. Someone wrote an editorial after winning the opportunity to attend the finale as Janelle’s guest. What an awesome adventure!

I caught a glimpse of The Biggest Loser. Kim, Marcy, Courtney, Mark, and Chism, they seem cool. My friend Jill has been telling me to watch The Biggest Loser since she begged me to audition with her in 2007. Maybe she’s right and maybe it’s a show worth watching.

1 hour later:

Uhg! - I hate admitting when I’m wrong, but I really like them and I am loving this show. Maybe I should set my DVR to record every “new” episode?

I went on my first long Harley ride today. Troy and I went to Shreveport. On the way we passed Tyler Texas. Why am I still worried about what happened to Mark and Chism?

I miss Dan. I don’t know what happened. I saw him three times a week and then he just disappeared. When I tried to find out where he went, I saw that was looking for people to write editorials about Survivor. Maybe I should give it a whirl. I’ve always considered myself a writer and I do have those unfinished novels under my bed.

I’m stunned! likes my writing style and they just posted an article I wrote as an audition about Big Brother UK. I’m going to start off by writing editorials about Modern Family and Revenge.

I woke up this morning to find an empty wine glass by my nightstand and my laptop keyboard has crusted chocolate on the keys. I hope I didn’t write anything stupid and submit it to

I decided to create a Facebook page for Solstice Tanner so I can continue to be anonymous.

Yikes! Someone at work found out I was writing freelance articles for and they overheard someone at work mention their niece is a contestant on The Biggest Loser, I hope I haven’t done or said anything awful.

Ring Ring – “Hello Doris!”

“You’ve landed?” Doris, Alex’s Aunt, asked.

“I just landed and I’m in Downtown Disney with my friend Jill. We’re so excited.” I answer. “What’s the plan?”

“Alex is in a dress rehearsal until 7. We’ll come by your room then.”

“Thank you so very much. Jill and I together have lost close to 300 lbs. We can’t wait.”

Now you’re all caught up, right? Everyone understands how we got here, right? Because I fell in love with former pro wrestler Kim (and I had to know everything about her journey) as well as her crew I set my DVR to auto record The Biggest Loser and ironically enough when I should have been finishing the final edits on an article about the TV show Revenge. My DVR clicked on and I ended up watching the opening episode for The Biggest Loser.

And my adventure began.

To be continued. . . . .
