the four horsemen

Do you ever dream that you're sitting down to a delicious dinner with friends, then you wake up, and then you feel sad that you never got to eat the meal and then embarrassed that you abandoned all your friends without any explanation, then you realize that because you woke up that gathering no longer exists and then you just feel really guilty? No? Just me? Must be the sleep aid I'm taking.

I watched the season premiere of Bachelor Pad, because someone has to, right? I was just really curious to see what it's all about. It did not disappoint. I mean, it was disappointing in the sense that it reflects the current state of our society and consumerism, etc., but shoot if it wasn't entertaining. The producers somehow wrangled eighteen of the stupidest contestants in Bachelor/Bachelorette history to compete in a contest no one understands. You think I'm judging too harshly? Let me back it up. The following conversation actually aired:

Gia: You don't build the emeny, er, enemy a bomb shelter if you have the chance to blow them up.
Jake: Yeah, but how did the Trojans beat the Greeks?
Gia: They left an elephant on their door.

You don't need to know the context of the conversation. It doesn't help clarify, nor does it correct the numerous factual errors.


  1. So glad you watched the Bachelor Pad. And don't worry, you never stop worrying about having an ugly baby even after you have one.

  2. Britt, I love Ames too, But I think he's looking for love in the wrong gender.
    Katie, that's oddly reassuring.


Don't be shy.
