Summer Birthday


I’m turning 38 years old tomorrow. This is the first birthday card I’ve received pre-birthday, from a girlfriend in Michigan. She made the blonde on the card a brunette with black pen, just for me. I don’t know if I can pull off such a dress, but I can certainly hold a cosmo and clutch.

This year I’ll turn another year older thinking back to 10 years ago to when I turned twenty-eight, in the Big Brother house. There’s nothing quite like spending your birthday in a house full of people who want to take your half-a-million dollars away from you, at the end of the day even on your birthday. I wouldn’t trade that birthday year though, because I’m still learning so much about myself as a result of my summer of Big Brother 4. On the eve of my 38th birthday I know I’ll be spending tomorrow in a house full of Davy and Noah, who are worth more than half-a-million dollars. I’ll be tuning in with you to see who loses their claim to $500,000 tonight, on Big Brother 15.


This question from Robert, guest blogger in “A Letter”, made me stop and think awhile because I couldn’t come up with a spur of the Twitter moment answer per usual. Then I realized it’s the things you do that won’t win you the game, that you should be least proud of. Things done out of pure spite and intent to hurt…for in those moments the worst in you comes lashing out.

I’ve touched upon this in my blog about my hateful moments in the house, “Crazy Mommy”, and how I see now that I could have been a “better” Korean in some ways in “Another Korean on Big Brother”.  I can also admit how happy I was that half the house couldn’t eat any of my birthday cake because they were on PB&J. That’s the spiteful bitch I was and can be still.

However, everything else I did in the house from baiting Ali and Nathan into fighting with The 3 Stooges and turning on Jack evicting him? I am proud of. I’m proud of letting Dana dig her own grave while she was up on the block with me, because although I loved her as a person she was collateral damage to me in the game. I’m proud of the role I played in getting Scott riled up and expelled from the game. The game.

I don’t get all the crying when people are evicted. Your alliance member got evicted? Would you rather it be you? No? Then stop crying.

This is why I wish Helen wouldn’t use tears to get her work done. It would be a cleaner game and more snot-free sanitary for the Big Brother 15 house. Crying women bring us back a few decades, and I abhor it as a tactic in life and inside BB. It’s a game though, so she can cry.

It’s those things that are NOT about the game that make us question ourselves, as we watch Houseguests once strangers to us, because we all say we “wouldn’t act a certain way if I was on the show.” You never know until you’re on the show. Sorry.

So no matter what…each HG deserves a shot at redemption post-show, and it should start with some silent reflecting. Wait, did I just sound like a mom right there? I don’t want to go all Helen on you…

Always dishing,

  • Happy Birthday my beautiful friend! A rich blog by someone who is a rich and juicy ingredient to the recipie of life.

    Only fitting for the food analogy considering you wrote of BB..cake..and cooking was merely one “utensil” garnishing (I’m on a role here Lol) your $500K paydirt.

    I’d buy you a drink if I were in your presence. And I’d give you a hug. And I’d squeal. But only once. Then I’d ask Davy to bday spank while we (the world) watched.

    You’re a treasure my dear. Muah! XoXo

    Happiest of Birthdays to you Jun! Hope you have a great day and many more Happy Birthdays to come.

  • What about the hat, Jun? Could you rock the hat? :)

    Another great one mama. Your blogs are a highlight of my day. Don’t always comment but I always read.

    Gonna play your digits. I want some hubcaps for my ride!

    Kisses & hugs for Mr. Awesome and Mr. Hottie. Take some for yourself, too.

  • Happy Birthday dear Junbug!! I remember your birthday in the BB house very well….10 years hasn’t aged you and happiness in your life has added an extra glow! Have a wonderful day and I think you could rock that dress in the card…I thought it was a painting you were trying to find a place on the wall for it! Huggsss

  • Happy Birthday Jun. I think you look better than you did 10 years ago, because you have a radiance about you that only comes from experience and finding your true path in life. I hope you have many more and that we can share them them all with you.

    Happy Birthday jun, I hope you have a great day tomorrow. I agree totally with the crying thing that helen is doing I don’t think it helps her game. Pus they have done a study and found it actually can repell the opposite sex. I’ve found that there are other methods that work much better to get what you want.;-)

  • happy happy bday to my sweet cyber bb “winning’ friend. you’re a sweet lady. thanks for the laughs, pics of noah, and entertaining me for yrs. love my Jun, Nancy

    Happy Birthday, Jun! I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since you won BB. Feels like yesterday to me.

  • A very Happy early Birthday Jun. I think back and it seems so much longer than 10 years. Of course I thought you were no more than 23 y/o that season so it makes my confusion more explainable. Maybe?

    I’m sure Davy and Noah have big plans for you today and I bet Davy gives you the ‘big one’ at least once for the day. You are the hottest cougar we know.

    As for the tears a female uses to get her way, we are the same. It has never worked on me. If tears are sincere I can, and sometimes do, cry along with them. Contrary to the heartless GaYToR I play online I can be more compassionate than anyone would believe. I cry even get moist eyes watching reruns of 50’s sitcoms. Back then they had meaningful scripts with a moral.

    HaPpY BiRtHdAy to you!!!!! :-*

    Let’s see. It’s almost 6 PM in the NE of the USA. That means it’s almost midnight in Belgium. So, I’m hoping you, Jun, are peacefully sound asleep and when you wake up and you’re reading this (right now)…it actually is your birthday! Yay!, Good morning and Happy Birthday to our favorite blogger/houseguest and writer. May the dear Lord shine His blessings on you on this, your special day, and the year ahead. Happy Birthday!!!

  • Happy birthday Jun! Enjoy your big day. I am so happy for you and your family. It is obvious to all how happy you are in your life.
    I look forward to your blog each and every day. Thank you for your words.

Feel Free to Dish!
