On Probation

January 18th, 2011 · No Comments · Good bad television, Stuff

So if it was my job to write here, I might have to fire myself. I haven’t even bothered to call in sick or request a leave of absence. I have just been completely MIA. Luckily, as I am more of volunteer, I just gave myself a stern warning and put myself on probation. I [...]

Ali’s Fair in Love and War

May 25th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Good bad television

I was not a fan of Ali Fedotowsky when she appeared on The Bachelor. I thought she was a “mean girl” and while I was not particularly fond of Vienna, I found Ali’s behavior towards her really unflattering and borderline cruel. So why am I watching The Bachelorette, you ask? Because it’s on. Because I [...]

I may need to get a life

January 21st, 2010 · 2 Comments · Good bad television, Stuff

So my People Magazine arrived last week. You know, the one with the “new improved” celebrity wannabe Heidi Montag on it. I promptly wrote a long scathing post expressing my dismay at her insecurities, her surgeries and how sad and pathetic it all was. I am not going to publish it because in rereading said [...]

Reality television, I wish I knew how to quit you

July 12th, 2009 · No Comments · Good bad television, Stuff

Just to be clear I didn’t give up reality television. I have totally been watching The Bachelorette. And I must say that for the first time in Bachelorette history, Jillian, our bachelorette, actually had choices that were appealing. There were a couple of duds and of course, one big slippery weasel, who really doesn’t deserve [...]

Nada Mucho

April 17th, 2009 · No Comments · Good bad television, Stuff, Venting

There are some weeks that go by and nothing much happens. And while that can make for a peaceful existence; it does not make for a colorful blog. This week has been one of those weeks. Nothing special happened, nothing got my proverbial panties in a bunch. It was a nonevent kind of week. Sure [...]

The most disappointing rose ceremony

March 3rd, 2009 · 2 Comments · Good bad television, Stuff

I had other plans for today’s post, but after last nights final episode of The Bachelor, I had to post a protest. In the most selfish and ill-conceived rose ceremony in Bachelor history, Jason Mesnick proposed to Melissa. This is the same guy we were all sorry for last season when he got down on [...]

Reality TV is preferable to reality right now

February 10th, 2009 · No Comments · Good bad television, Stuff

I don’t mean to keep writing about The Bachelor, but then again I don’t really mean to keep watching The Bachelor. I just can’t help myself. Besides what with all the gloom and doom and layoffs and bailouts, reality television may be just what the doctor ordered. Also I seem to have been on a [...]

Bachelorama

January 14th, 2009 · No Comments · Good bad television, Stuff

I don’t have penis envy, but watching The Bachelor makes me want to change teams. Watching the way these women behave makes me embarrassed to be part of their club. When asked how he approached his experience on The Bachelorette, the current bachelor Jason said that he wanted to have as much fun as he [...]

Puppy Season

January 11th, 2009 · No Comments · Animals on my planet, Good bad television, Stuff

I am over football, for this year at least, which is too bad because this is the post-season when Bob and all his testosterone-wielding brothers are in football heaven. The Bears just sucked all the football out of me. It was a season of too much anxiety.  If they were winning, it felt as if [...]

Bachelor-not

January 7th, 2009 · No Comments · Good bad television, Stuff

As we gear up for another season of The Bachelor, I stop to wonder why we keep watching? Bob gripes at the beginning of each new run that the guy never gets married. He has a point. Heck, half the time they don’t even get engaged. That doesn’t deter us from enjoying the antics of [...]
