Next up, Valentine's Day. I usually dread it. Haha - I did actually dread it but it turned out better than I thought. One of my FB friends called it Singles Awareness Day (s.a.d), I thought that was hilarious. He said it's because he's never more aware of being single. Anyhow, my little sister and her husband and the new baby have been coming over every Tuesday for the last 5 or 6 weeks. I make supper and steal the baby and we watch the Bachelor recorded from the night before. We have a good time. It wasn't until Sunday that I realized that our next Tuesday fell on Valentine's Day. We'd already decided what we were having for supper, "breakfast for supper". When I realized, I offered to just babysit so they could go out on a date and they both said no, haha! They wanted the eggs benedict and the bachelor. So it was just like any other Tuesday but this little cutie pie had a Valentine's Day card for me and she was decked out in hearts. She was the best Valentine I've ever had. Haha - all the previous ones turned out to be d-bags in one fashion or another.
And now the segue (not a weird word when you say it, but totally a weird word when you type it) to the bachelor . . . Oh Courtney. She is just so unreal, I wouldn't know where to begin. What stuck out most to me this episode was how much she doesn't look at him. If you still have it on PVR, go to the part where she & Ben are having dinner. She glances all around her and then all of sudden looks fake interested in what he's saying. So bizarre. Then, the whole cocktail party thing when she was acting weird and talking about her pina colada and talking about how confident she was, OBNOXIOUS! However, the worst was when she was sniffing her rose and waving it Emily's face and then sang her little "see ya, wouldn't wanna be ya" as she left. How does Ben not see that??? He's RIGHT THERE. He doesn't want to see it and his penis is incapable of seeing it. Anyhow, internet rumors have long since said that he picks Courtney in the end and I really hope he does. I hope he picks her for two reasons: first, none of those other girls would be having a fun time right now. Imagine, he picks you. Then you have to sit and watch this whole season and how he carries on with Courtney. Awful. And the second reason I hope he picks Courtney? the aftermath. This aftermath I think will prove to be delicious reality television for both the Women Tell All and the After the Final Rose. Delicious. Yes, I'm a junkie. If you haven't watched this yet, please do, it's hilarious and unfortunately, the tune is a little catchy so it will get stuck in your head.
Hometown dates next week! I'm kind of wondering if Courtney hired a family, hahaha!! And if she used her own family, are they embarrassed by her behavior now while watching the season??
It's a terrible show and I love it! I was going to include some Survivor thoughts in this post but I'll do that on the weekend. Sneak preview, the women are driving me nuts and Matt is so arrogant and cocky that I hope he goes first.
So what say you Bachelor fans? And how do you stay on track for special occasions and/or out of town company when you know there will be lots of food and socializing?
