Just playing the numbers game. Hopefully ONE of these dudes will stick...because I don't think I can go 4 for 4. Mama needs a nap.
Melissa is so crazytown that she really might never get a date again in real life, and Erica is just...Erica. Her oily rubdown of Blake was another fast-forward inducer for me. Vom.
And what was up with Michael's "I Heart Water" t-shirt? Is he getting royalties for some sort of water company? Or is that just how he truly feels? I'm sure we'll find out soon enough, as he tends to express his feelings often. (Shame on you, Holly. Shame on you for making snow angels with Blake and being all "woe is me - two guys are in love with me!" Must be nice.)
What I truly don't understand about this show (and perhaps one reason I'm not picked to participate) is why. They. Don't. Just. Vote. Off. Kasey. No one can understand him anyway...would just make communication a lot easier around there, if you ask me. Not that you did.

Spell your own name correctly. Seriously. Just got an email from someone with the screen name "Chrisitopher." Now, unless this is some new hip spelling for Christopher, run a quick spell-check, buddy. I know, my standards are just unreachably high. Sigh.

Last week I was tasked with testing out the webcam capabilities at work in order to record a presentation by our CEO. He would stand in front of a screen with PowerPoint slides, which we tested on the camera, but I of course wanted something more. So I asked our IT wiz to download a roaring fire to create a fireside chat. And he did. So the above is what we came up with. Sadly, the CEO ended up using the slides anyway. But how great would it have been for him to rock some sort of cardigan sweater in front of the "fire," remove a pipe from his mouth, and delve into the meeting.
(Note: this is why I'm not a CEO.)
Someone asked him what restaurant he went to. He said he couldn't remember.
(I wonder why.)
Thanks - I'll be here all week! Try the veal!

Cringe-worthy Moment #1: When nutty Erica Rose kept pawing at Jake and I knew a serious mug-down was about to happen (and I was right. Ew.)
Cringe-worthy Moment #2: When Kasey serenaded Vienna. WHY DO PEOPLE DO THIS. I seriously can't deal.
Stand-out Moment #1: Bret f-ing Michaels. What the hell he was doing there, I have no idea - are they giving him a new show where he's a relationship coach? - but damn I heart him. And damn I miss Rock of Love.
Stand-out Moment #2: Synchronized swimming, people. SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING. I heard an interview with Chris Harrison on the radio and he said the guys' Speedos were quite...revealing. HA. And the whole thing made me think of the best SNL sketch in history, featuring Martin Short in a life vest because he's "not a strong swimmer." Greatness.

I do think it's amusing how my profile headlines have evolved over the years. And yes, it has been years. Oh the humanity.
Started out with something super lame like "Blondes DO have more fun." Oof.
Then I tried the humor approach: "This one time...at band camp..."
And then the guy-friendly movie line angle: "Damn glad to meet ya! (and yes, I'm quoting Animal House.)"
And the latest incarnation, which probably reveals the most about me as a person:
"Stop. Collaborate and listen."
Oddly, not bringing in as many suitors as one would think. Curses, Vanilla Ice. Curses.

I crack myself up. But seriously - I will be taking photos of this purse and putting them on Facebook. You think I'm joking.

Ah, Nana. Here's to 87 more years. Which she will probably live to see.

It's very much a "how many blondes does it take to screw in a painting" situation. And apparently it takes more than two: we finally gave up and hired the maintenance guy at my apt to come and drill a bunch of holes. There's a "that's what she said" joke in there somewhere...

Apparently I wandered into some sort of street performance, and looking back it is hysterical. At the time, though - mortifying. What else is new.

The rolling power outages also sound like fun - no A/C at all! Wheeee! (Just like being back in London!) So far, haven't experienced one (knock on wood), but I have a feeling it will be happening soon enough.
Damn you, global warming. (Actually, damn you Aquanet users from the 80s. I blame you for this. And mall hair.)

And BIG le sigh re: Ben C. I so heart him. And I so knew he was a goner when he started telling the camera about being engaged. Wah. Call me, Benny. We'll get you a quick haircut and then we can start dating. K?

Regardless, Paris was amazing. I might write a book on how to see it in 24 hours. Because that's basically what I did. The Eiffel Tower, a cruise down the Seine, Notre Dame, Arc de Triomph, Saint Germain des Pres...and finished it off with a mani/pedi. Seriously considered asking for a FRENCH manicure...but is that just a manicure over there??
