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 [...]

Of Great Importance (or not)

March 5th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Stuff, Venting

It has been a while since I’ve unloaded on the Internet and well, I have some questions. Do some drivers really believe that if they pretend to have no peripheral vision they are excused from letting other cars into their lane? A message to said drivers: Just because you act as though you can’ t see [...]

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 [...]

Deja Vu

January 4th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Stuff

I’m doing it again. I can’t believe it. I am officially pathetic. I am watching The Bachelor. I apparently had a lobotomy at some point since the last season. Beyond being the usual women, desperate enough to actually be on this show, this group of bachelorettes keeps talking about winning. The idea is to meet [...]

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 [...]

Now hair this

April 25th, 2009 · No Comments · Stuff, Venting

Maybe I should have lied and said that I just got back from filming Survivor, Yemen or that I had been sequestered in the Big Brother house, but I didn’t. I just let the chips fall where they may as the receptionist checked and announced that I hadn’t had my hair cut or colored since [...]

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 [...]

Pump up the volume

February 27th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Stuff

I am not normally a nag. I am a lot of other things: impatient, moody and sometimes an all around pain in the ass, but not a nag. After months and months of listening to the television on volumes meant for sports bars not homes, however, I started to nag. Bob claimed that at normal [...]
