Hello, don’t kill me.
Because I’m going to sit this season out.
I’m just going to sit and watch the show every Monday night (possibly with ice cream and/or wine) and I’m not going to take notes.
It’s kind of freeing.
Except that I’m afraid you want to kill me.
I have a few thoughts (or excuses, if you will) about it.
1) I don’t think I entirely agree with the whole Kaitlyn vs. Britt shenanigans that are going on. SCOFF.
2) It’s the end of the year. I’m tired. I’m stressed. I keep calling kids by the wrong name and I know these kids. They’re in my class and have been in my class since day one. And I’m not talking a little bit here and there. I’m talking no one is safe and even if your name is just as easy as pie (like Ann), I’m gonna call you Jim Bob by accident. Don’t even get me started on spelling the names.
3) I figured if I Talked About it Tuesday on Facebook, we could have more of a conversation . . . and reply to one another and chit chat that way in more of a live feed situation. I think. I don’t know. I’m not saying I’m going to sit on FB all night on Tuesdays, either. I mean, hello . . . The Real Housewives of New York are on Tuesday nights. One has to prioritize, right?
I have talked about her before. I kind of stalk her.
I also stalk her best friend, Shae, who happens to be Sean’s (The Bachelor who married Catherine) sister.
Sometimes, I even enlist people to do my stalking in person. As in, Kerry, my twin, has met both of them at the mall (in her city in Texas). She just went right on up to them and said hi.
I like to pretend I was there, too, and that we all sat down and had a frozen yogurt or a Starbucks together.
Anywho, Shaeffer cracks me up. I mean, I laugh and laugh. I love the way she writes. And, according to Kerry, we have similar writing styles and a similar voice. So. Maybe it will be like you are reading my recap except for the fact that you won’t.
But seriously, give Shaeffer a try and let me know what you think. She is super duper popular and has a ton of fans. Her recaps generally come out Wednesday or Thursday because she has a son and a husband and a job and a dog . . . and a life.
And, if you DO visit Shaeffer for a bachelor recap, you HAVE TO TELL HER THAT I SENT YOU!!
In fact, HOW ABOUT EVERYONE LEAVES A COMMENT TELLING HER THAT I SENT YOU SO THAT SHE THINKS I’M IMPORTANT?! And then maybe she will stalk me!
I’m not embarrassed to say that I’ve also emailed her on several occasions for fashion advice. She always replies.
We are this.close.
In my mind.
Please forgive me for not doing the recaps. Don’t hate me. Please.
Although, I’ve kind of always wanted a hater (just to know that I’ve arrived) so maybe one negative comment would be okay. But just one.
No more than one.
Or I might cry.
And delete it.
