Talk About It Tuesday

Happy Tuesday to you!  I am happy to say that I have upgraded my clothing attire.  I am out of my pjs and into sweats.  Does it matter that I have on the same Boomer Sooner T-shirt that I had on yesterday?  And quite possibly the day before that?  I don't think I slept in it . . . Scratch head.  Oh.  When was the last time I washed my hair?? 

I am just kidding about my Summer Vacation hygiene.  



Let's talk about the Bachelorette.

All I really want to talk about from the entire two hour episode is this:

What in the world is Ryan wearing???  Is it a tank top?  Does he have his underwear on the wrong end of his body?  Or is this a bra gone wrong?  I mean, WHAT IS THIS????????  I do not understand it.  

And can I just say that I like facial hair on guys.  I do.  I like some scruff.  I just do.

But Ryan's facial hair?????



I think I need to wash my eyes out with soap.

I didn't take notes on last night's episode.  This is due to the fact that my hubby was flying in late to an airport near my parent's house.  So I went over there and hung out until an unGodly hour (at which point the hubs finally landed on nearby soil).  My older sister was at my parents, too.  Do you get the picture that we're a close knit family?

So we watched it together.  Without Tivo.  (The parents did NOT watch it.  They stayed in the family room with the big screen TV and the Tivo.  We were booted to their room.  Where the TV is small.  And does not have Tivo.)

It was like being transported back in time.  I actually had to watch commercials.  No wonder my eyes need a good washing.

So I didn't take notes.  I couldn't.  Not with the piece of Chocolate Mousse Pie that my mom made with her own two hands and then made me eat.  

So I don't have too much to say.

Travis - Egg Boy - Goodbye.  

He cried.  

Sean - he threw a big log and then the log broke.  Emily liked that.  So did I.  Wink wink.

Emily kissed Arie, Sean, Jef, and Chris whilst on that date.  That is not gross or anything.  Her cold had cleared up.   

Ryan -  I guess he's worried now that the show is going to edit his stuff in such a way that he comes off looking like a big jerk.  I can't wait for the Guys Tell All.  He made some great friendships along the way, you know.  I am sure it will be a big Bro-mance.

Doug and John Wolf - cried.  Cried, cried, cried.  It was a little embarassing.  Doug almost couldn't get the words out.  And then she kept both of them.  By dramatically and heart stoppingly asking for an EXTRA rose from Chris Harrison.  

I heart Chris Harrison.

I wonder what he and that girl were talking about outside?  Possibly basketball.  Or maybe the weather.  Or their conversation might have been about when in the heck was Emily going to come out and ask for that extra rose that they told her to ask for.

Next week, Arie is in big trouble because he dated a Bachelorette producer and now that producer is Emily's friend.  And no one told her.  Whoa.  BETRAYAL.  Arie better watch out for his a** or Emily might go West Virginia-Hood Rat-Back Woods on him.

I mostly got the above information from US Weekly.

And there you have it.



  1. I LOVE these posts, you're so gosh darn funny! It kills me. Laugh laugh laugh.
    I have no idea what that garment is, I didn't even notice it until I read this! :D Needless to say, glad he's gone, and BF and I laughed at the "I made a lot of good friends here" comment. Ha!

  2. You are sooooo funny! Ryan- the facial hair? And just his hair generally it's like he just touched some sort of magnetic force field and it stands up on top of his head. Not sure about the tank top though. Yikes. I think he figured if he stared at Emily long enough she would change her mind and say - OK never mind here's the rose.
    For me it's Sean all the way. If you have Sean as one of your choices what else could a girl possibly need? He is just a solid good guy.

  3. HAHHAH! I LOVE your posts. Hilarious. I didn't notice Ryans awkward tank until you mentioned it. SO weird.

    I enjoy your weekly recaps!

  4. Ok, I LOVE that you posted that tank top picture...when I was watching it (my girl friends and I get together for it) all DIED! I seriously had that tank top in high school, but it was baby blue..... GROSSSSSS~

    Apples and ABC's

  5. I was SO proud of Emily for standing her ground with Ryan... I mean it. I don't understand how the turquoise shoes were to impress her? Just throw a log dude.

  6. Funny! I didn't notice the tank top! OMG what was he thinking that is not good for a guy to wear! Guess he wanted to wear a wife-beater, but thought not good for TV, and came up with the girlie option?! Then again everything about this person creaps me out! I thought he was going to bully her into giving him the rose. I was mentally screaming at my TV "NO, DON'T DO IT." (My hubby was sleeping).

  7. Ryan is wearing a dancer's tank top. I'm a big fan of So You Think You Can Dance and you'll often see the male dancers on that show wearing it. But Ryan...no...NO! He didn't pull it off. So proud of her for seeing through him and getting rid of him.

  8. Omg! I didn't notice the tank top because I was working on a project, but no that shouldn't be worn. I'm glad she got rid of him even though she was passing up the opportunity with such a "great" guy. Thanks for your weekly update!


  9. Hey girlfriend! HOW on earth did you fix your font?! Mine is going crazy too and looking all cursive/grandma like. HELP me! People that are opening my blog through Firefox say it's fine, but the Safari browser is showing something crazy. I know you had this problem too! What did you do?!?!

  10. OMG- I so did not notice this tank last night. That is so funny. I was on the floor laughing when he was saying that he had developed some great friendships as they were high-fiving each other because he wasn't coming back. Then... a small part of me felt bad for him because he's going to {eventually} realize that he had no friends... zero... nada... nothing! He is such the charmer, but I am so glad that Emily did not give in to his long speech about how he was 'shocked!' If I heard him say that again I was going to go crazy!! BTW- I've never like Arie that much. I can't wait until next week. Oh- and Sean is oh so cute, BUT I would like to see her with Chris. Can you tell I love this show??? lol

  11. When I saw Ryan wearing that shirt, I was crying laughing!!!!!

    I could not believe that Ryan went home. And I was super scared that she would take him back.

    Also if Arie leaves because of this stupid producer thing I think I will be the one crying next week!

    Marvelous Multiagers!

  12. That wife beater tank top was just disturbing. I really loved when he tried to stare down Emily for the rose. I wonder what great things this winner will accomplish in the future. HA!

    Yeehaw! Teaching in Texas

  13. I don't even watch the show (yikes!), but I sure LOVE reading your post! I almost want to watch it! Wow. That "thing" he is wearing is a bit scary!

  14. We had the same comment about the tank tip! What a dufus! Don't worry thing, he knows there are bigger things out there...he may even become the next Bachelor! He kind of scares me.

    Don't know what I think of Arie....is he for real?? Cuz I see a short relationship there...not a long one and I also can't quite picture him as a dad....he sure is cute though.

  15. oh my goodness.. I just came across your blog today and I was literally rolling on the floor laughing reading your post. Of course, I watch so I get what you're talking about :) Thanks for the giggles!

  16. My girlfriends and I (and their mom) are driving home from Branson right now and giggled about your post! That pic was passed around the car - so funny!


  17. I was so glad she got rid of Ryan. He was such a creeper! You read my mind about his shirt. What was that???

  18. I'm so happy that RYAN is gone! I sure hope he's not the next bachelor. I don't know if I'd be able to watch. That "shirt" is ridiculous. I think it's for women, because I've seen girls at the gym wearing something like it.

    Is it just me, or is Doug a REALLY ugly crier? You know, some people are cute when they cry (they sniffle and all you want to do is snuggle them). Doug is gross when he cries. Suck it up big boy! His time is about up and he knows it.

  19. How could you not comment on the shoes?? (shakes head) really Kristin... Turquoise shoes..... on a man... (shakes computer). I missed the first ten minutes and have no time to watch and catch the tank top. YUCK! As bad as the shoes but I am so glad he is gone. I was so worried he was gonna stay when he started bullying her. I loved how she said she dressed like a trophy since he wanted a trophy wife but hated his response of how could you not want to be a trophy when you dress like that. I so wish she would have thrown a glass of water in his face or something. Sigh.


    Think, Wonder, & Teach

  20. Okay, I'm always obsessed with this series, but especially since Emily is my {reality} BFF! How did I miss that tank top?? I know I'm the least observant person in the WORLD but I would think even I would have noticed that...or the turquoise shoes?? It definitely looks like a girl's workout tank! Soooo glad he's gone! One of my teacher buddies taught him in high school and swears he's a great guy {not seeing it!} I know I shouldn't like Arie and don't think they're a good fit {since I read everything out there about these guys}, but doggone it, for some reason I do! I'm thinking Jef is going to be the one {personally, I think he's a little awkward...a sweet, great guy, but awkward.}

  21. Okay, don't watch the show anymore, but CANNOT stop laughing...Oh my gosh, you are so hilarious and seriously...What is that boy wearing?!? Maybe he found it on Pinterest and DIYed it...Yikes! :)

    Thanks for waking us out of our summer slumber (first day dressed for us too!) and giving us a much needed chuckle! :)

    Christy & Tammy

  22. I think he has on his sister's training bra. That he secretly wore at the age of 12. :)


  23. I believe that type tank I've only seen on guys who prefer guys. Hmmmmm....you are HEElarios girl!

  24. Oh.... that "shirt".
    So... according to Ryan... if he comes off as arrogant, it's the producers' fault?
    Totally blaming you for getting me hooked on this ridiculous show by the way.

  25. Your posts crack me up...I read them ALL the time and never post (silent stalker). I've read a few out loud to my husband thinking he could possibly appreciate the humor the way I do (I do the same thing with those ecard things on Pinterest), anyways not so much :(

    So happy Ryan got the boot. I was worried for awhile that she might change her mind, but I was happy that she stood her ground with him! The tank top....yep, I have a very similar workout tank top! Oh, and all his references to his "trophy wife" made me want to slap him!

    I'm rooting entirely for Sean...LOVE him! He's been my favorite since he stepped out of the limo. I actually was disappointed in the lack of hot guys for Emily's season as I think she's way more attractive then several past bachelorettes. Don't you wish you could be on the committee that gets to pick out the guys?...now that would be fun!!

  26. I have no idea what possessed Ryan to wear that...thing! So glad he is gone though!!

  27. while surfing around looking for nifty teacher blogs to add to my list on my new blog i came across your blog and you are stinkin hilarious! don't even know if you have anything to say about school or teaching or any of that jazz but you made me laugh out loud so i'm linking you up babeee!

  28. I've been stalking your blog forever now and finally have time to comment...what with being off for the summer and all. I am truly baffled at how many commenters say THEY DID NOT NOTICE THE TANK-TOP until you mentioned it! Whaaaa?! How can you not notice that thing? I've seen really built, black men be able to pull that look off, but that's about it.

  29. What I love about your article is that it is unique and loaded with substance which really captivates me. Some of the blogs today are not very informative and that is why site visitors will not read the full post. But yours was different. I'd like to thank my friend also for referring your blog to me. Hope to see more of this. Keep it up!
