I hide this fact from most people. I would never admit it in public where people could guffaw at me, or give me a dirty look. I mean, there are far more redeeming things to do with my time, I am sure. However, I do enjoy it soooooooooooo much. I have already revealed my reality TV obsession. Maybe I enjoy it because --it make me feel like a semi-normal individual-- and even if it suspends that belief for just one hour, it helps and is worth it. I look forward to it and watch the clock click down to 10:00 p.m. I have the DVR set to record and at 10:15, I turn on THE BACHELOR.
I know, I know.. horrible, disgusting... HILARIOUS TV!
I must admit that it is more fun when you are watching it with a girlfriend. I finally convinced my neighbor and friend Amy to come over and watch it with me. It is far more fun that way because you can process the ridiculousness in new ways. Tivo helps to, because sometimes things go by WAYYYYYYYYYY too fast and pausing to stare at the ensembles that are put together at the final rose ceremony make it TOTALLY worth it.
Favorite Quote from Amy: "Oh, please don't sing Opera. . . NOBODY looks good singing Opera."
Favorite Quote from the Bachelorettes: (and yes, we rewound it just to be sure it is what she really said) upon her departure. . ."I just can't wait to get home to my cat . . and to hear her puuurrr again . . . [sniffle] she is the only person in my life right now."
COME ON! Doesn't that make you feel PRETTY GREAT about your life???? Even just a little?
Please join me 10:15 p.m. my place, Monday night. I provide goodies. It is always good for a laugh.
