Billie On – The Bachelor 1/26

I have to be honest, I've never spent much time watching The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. I've seen bits and pieces here and there, but the concept never caught my attention. Usually I like shows that have more drama, especially when it's reality related. I'm talking girls spitting on each other, cat fights, name calling - that's my tv jam. What can I say? My life is boring so tv drama fills a void. Anywho, I have a friend that mentioned she likes The Bachelor and I had heard that this time around it was a guy from Iowa. Since I'm a fellow Iowan, I thought I'd give it a shot. It turns out Chris, this season's bachelor is from Arlington which is actually pretty close to me though I don't think I've ever been there. Some Iowa towns are so small though that you may have driven through them, but never been there. First off let me say I don't like how each episode so far has been a couple hours long.

I usually listened to the radio, but honestly my favorite thing was a subliminal weight loss tape. On one side it was the sound of a rainforest and on the other it was a piano playing. I liked the forest better, but I listened to both. As I got older, I transitioned into needing the tv on, but we didn't always have cable. This was back when there would be such awful infomercials on in the middle of the night, so I would often record movies on a tape and when I went to bed I would just pop it in. It didn't matter if I missed any of the it because I had seen them. Fast forward years and advancements in technology and I do the same thing, but with the DVR. Whenever I see a movie that I love, I record it and then when I'm getting in bed I pop it on. This largely annoys my husband, but thankfully he … [Read more...] – Goods Delivered Directly to Your Door
