House of Cards: This Week's Survivor Challenge

So, my player was voted off the show last week.

Bye, bye, Cirie. I was yelling and screaming at the screen.

But, I am still in the competition because my fellow survivors have kept me around so far.

This week, we are playing for individual immunity. The player who can build the tallest card tower wins.

I'm a klutz. Seriously, I fell down the stairs this week, flipped up on the air like a cartoon character, and kept right on going, due to the hideous silk pj bottoms I had on. I can barely turn my neck. I'm a freaking wreck.

So, this challenge....yeah, NOT up my alley.

But, I managed to get 5 stories up. We had to take a pic of ourselves with it, but everyone was sleeping when I did mine, so I just got my foot in the pic. If you need me to, I can show you other pics where this is my house in the background. But, really, if I was going to cheat, I would have picked a much more impressive card building to claim as my own.

Not counting on a win this week, unless people forget about doing this challenge!
