I debated not doing this. I watched the show and thought to myself, why? Should I talk about this? Isn’t that what this show is already about? The Girls Tell All so why does anyone want to hear from me?
And then I was afraid of disappointing people. So I have a few thoughts for you. Just a few.
We start the show with “Where are they now?”
No more Ed and Jillian.
No more Ali and Roberto.
But we do have Bachelor Pad. YES! I can’t wait. The hubby even watches that one with me. 🙂
Is it just me or does Shawntel need to go away?
Emily – Re-watching Ben tell her to “tread lightly” made me sick. I do not like him, Sam I am.
And hooray, hooray!!
She listened to me!! Emily discovered his true colors!! She found out that she didn’t want him in the long run. She was SO RIGHT ON when she talked about how he disrespected the other girls by skinny dipping with Courtney. Stupid boy. Stupid, stupid boy.
I have to say I really enjoyed Emily’s time in the hot seat. I think Chris Harrison did, too.
Nikki – she’s sweet. I like that girl. I was hoping she would say something along the lines of . . . “Now that I’ve seen the episodes, Ben is a dirty dog, and Courtney can feed him his treats.”
Kasie B. – just seemed like Little Girl Lost. What do you think?
Courtney – do you believe her tears? I don’t know. Once again, it goes back to the whole “you would never want me on your jury because I am wishy washy” thing that I’ve got going on.
When the girls were attacking her, I was their cheerleader. Rah Rah! That’s right! Pow! Upper cut! Take that! Good one, Emily!
But when Courtney started crying about the tabloids and how torn up her family is . . . all of my defenses came down and I just felt sorry for her.
I know. It’s a sickness. My neck hurts. From all the rubber necking.
I debated turning off the TV when Ben came on. I don’t think I’m wishy washy there. Nope. My mind is made up. I am not a fan. But I carried on. For you. I did not turn off the TV.
Is it just me or did it seem like Ben was just LOVING his time in the hot seat? Fame! I want to live forever! Baby, remember my name!
(What is up with these girls saying that he’s fabulous? What? Wait. Huh? When did we start talking about Ryan Gosling?)
That’s all. That’s all I’ve got. I know it’s not much. I apologize. There was stuff about Blakely and that Chihuahua girl . . . it was fun to watch. I enjoyed every minute of it (except the Ben parts).
I am very distracted by all of this because I just rushed home (we are taking the Dave Ramsey Financial class . . . every Tuesday for the next 13 weeks! My poor Orange County housewives!!!! Whatever will they do without me?). I had no intention of rushing home, but after school, I had to rearrange the furniture in my classroom a bit. Rather than check papers, get ready for tomorrow, etc. So I rushed.
Why did I have to rearrange the furniture, you ask???
BECAUSE DOT ARRIVED!!!!!!
DOT. THE LADYBUG.
Take a look!!!

I am still laughing at TampoNs….hilarious! And Todd…I salute you. Can you image the site of all the Todds thrown out in the teaching world?!!!
yay for ladybugs! Yay for being wishy washy…thought the girls were a little too vicious. They didn't like it from her…but…they were all talking smack.
anyhoo…My team tried to figure out where frisco is today so I can somehow some day meet you halfway….
Reagan Tunstall says
imagine not image…ugh.
Laurel Frazier says
Good move with the Dave Ramsay class. He's why my car is 10 years old and I don't care. Congratulations on your ladybug. I have an Elmo and I couldn't live without him.
I AM SO EXCITED you got a ladybug!!!!! You are going to love it…the kids will be so quiet and engaged! Have a great day tomorrow!
Mrs. Poland says
Yes — you had to write this! I am currently watching "Inside Job" as hubby thinks I needed to hear this. I think he got I have an MBA… I told him about this. Geesh.. blah, blah, blah… So needed your post.
Oh and my blog is getting a makeover atm. It is still have naked. No peeking till tomorrow!
Think, Wonder, & Teach
You crack me up! I took the Ramsey classes a few years ago and boy, did he change my life! Loved it! Good luck with that! Now please educate me on this ladybug thing? What is that???
okay just to comment on the bachelor. I really don't think Courtney was sincere, great actress though. the whole thing is weird, will he pick Courtney and make the biggest mistake of his life. that is what the tabloids are saying. okay so you have peeked my interest. what is dot the ladybug???? Looking forward to your response. mary at firstname.lastname@example.org

You will LOVE your doc camera! I don't know how I ever taught without it! Good luck with the financial class-sounds thrilling! 🙂
Stacy Johnson says

RIGHT ON. I can't stand Ben or Courtney. They belong together I guess. Your commentary was way more funny and entertaining! Thank you! Have fun with your doc camera!
First Grade Brain Sprinkles
Oh….Dave Ramsey….I need some of that in my life….I started to try it on my own this summer and it was a FAIL….really my fault! I mean, tonight when the hubby went to get a beer after work….I was thrilled….took all three kids with me to a fun and fast mexican restaurant! CHACHING!
Also….he changed over my pay pal to his email so that he could charge his buddies for their softball team….and he keeps saying….What is teacher synergy….oh my!
What do you think about Emily for the bachelorette? I think that she or Nikki may end up getting a chance down the road! I am sad that Ali and Roberto are out….but seems that Ali and Frank will just get going instead!
Thanks for a fun tuesday post….now I have to get back to my report cards!
Kelli :) says
WHAAAT??? How could even CONSIDER NOT writing about the show??!!!?? I will admit it wasn't as exciting as the other episodes, but to be honest, I think I liked it better because I saw LESS of Ben! What a creep!
Kacie did seem a bit lost this time! I really HATED to watch her Limo Language AGAIN! Enough, already!
I FOR SURE think Courtney was faking it! They are all about the FAME! But for real, does being on the Bachelor give you GOOD fame????
HOW CAN YOU FORGET ABOUT JENNA???? I was watching and about fell off the couch…all of a sudden…55 minutes in…there SHE is? Didn't SHE become meek and mild???!!!!
One more thing…WHAT were all the girls wearing???? I don't have a dress like it in my closet…I think I stopped wearing anything that short when I turned 25. I mean, WOW! I know I def can't wear those to school….
Until next week…

I love your recaps- even though I gave up on the bachelor a few weeks ago.. I just could not stand Ben or Courtney one more day!

I used to think my teachers were so cool- getting to write on the overhead with the vis-a-vis markers….I loved it when I got to solve a problem in math on it!
I have a doc camera now and a big screen- i want a smart board though….i'm greedy- but I preface it with "it's for the kids!!!"
Mrs. K says
The WTA show was super boring for the most part. I love your recaps. and wow! The ladibug!! enjoy! Have you ever had any other document camera? I'm wondering how it compares.
Miss T says
Haha! I'm cracking up 🙂
Oh the other week I was in kinder and apparently their teacher has not used the overhead (and she doesn't have an elmo) and they were all "ooooh" and fascinated. She still has blackboards in her class! I was just laughing they were obsessed with the overhead. Wait til next year and they see the elmo!
Journey of a Substitute Teacher
I don't think the tears were that sincere…did you notice how low her voice sounded vs the baby voice she uses around Ben? BLAH I found you through Oh Boy Fourth Grade. Farley is my friend! 🙂
My doc camera doesn't have a cool name. Its an AverMedia… maybe I could call it Avery… Averie? IDK… I love it, but it isn't as cute as yours! Congrats! (Are those lights on either side?)
Courtney. Oh Courtney. I think she IS embarrassed, humiliated, and sorry that she is now getting backlash for her horribleness. But I also think that is who she is. Maybe she'll change? My teacher friend felt it was all an act. But seriously, how could you watch yourself act like that and not be embarrassed and sorry?
I didn't understand why so many of those girls were still gaga over him. I don't get it at all.

I LOVED when you sang Fame!!!!!!
Also I am crazy jealous of Dot. I hope you give her lots of love on my behalf1!!
Jenn Bates says
I don't know how I taught before my document camera! Plus I love having the projector to hook my laptop up to. Have fun!
Finally in First
I gagged when one girl said he has perfect hair! Ick!
Melissa, DillyDabbles says
I have the exact same doc camera model. It's great! I use it all day long.
I was so excited to tune in for your Talk About it Tuesday (thanks for taking one for the team!)…but now I'm even more excited about the whole ladybug thingy! Hmm…need to check that out! 🙂
I think ABC *made* Courtney apologize and are trying to make her look better because Ben picks her in the end. That's just my prediction ~ I don't know for sure, of course! I mean, didn't Chris say it's the "most controversial Bachelor proposal in history" or something like that? Or does he always say that?
Oh well, I'll still tune in next week…even though Ben is a complete goober. I mean, really…have there been any GOOD bachelors lately???
Good luck w/ Dave Ramsey – love him! Never took the class, but listen to his show all the time & follow his teachings. Great advice that works!
Buggy In Kindergarten says
OMG girl, you crack me up! TampoNs. Literally made me laugh out loud. I wish I could find money to spend on all of the TpT items… rather they are target finds or teacher finds. 🙂 Thanks for your update on The Bachelor. If it wasn't for you and the ladies I eat lunch with, I wouldn't know what was going on. I can't watch that much drama. But I do enjoy hearing the recaps.
Kreative in Kinder says
I so need to take the Dave Ramsey class. I wish I made enough money that it didn't matter what I spent. Geez! Talk about sucking all the fun out. LOL! I haven't watched B this week because I have been too busy and know I won't be able to until Saturday so I was glad to be caught up momentarily through your post. I feel like I can make it until Saturday. I agree, NOT a fan of BEN. Ewww! So, June?! I'm there (or here actually..in Texas!). 🙂
Mrs. B. says
Don't give up on Todd! I know you have to stick to the program and everything, but the overhead CAN be used as a workstation in math and ELA (if you're able to squeeze out some small group time).
I use mine, scooted off to the side of the room on a cart, for a math workstation. 2 kids work with math manipulatives (right now they're matching unit fractions with my centuries-old overhead manipulatives). They roll the cart over, plug it in, and everything! They are 2nd graders. 🙂
