I made it through my first day back at work and it was a really great day and I remembered how much I love my kiddos and how much I love teaching first grade so that was good.
Considering that’s my job. And that’s what I went to college for. And that’s why I’m paying student loans.
Now, as far as the The Bachelor goes, I have to say I was bored with the first half. Just warning you. There was not a whole lot to work with and/or my first day back made me tired and I was not up to par. It was either that or the wine. And the chocolate. I still have left over chocolate. This was not See’s. It was Ghiradelli. Just as yummy and the squares are way bigger, by the way.
Anyways, the episode started by getting right back into it. I mean it. No red carpet this time. No here’s what happened last week and let’s all watch Prince Farming frolic through his cornfields or wheat fields or whatever kind of a crop it is (like it matters, he is shirtless!) . . . Nope. None of that.
The episode opened right up with the girls who were given roses toasting Chris with champagne and then BOOM.
In walked Kimberly, a girl who was not given a rose.
She asked if she could steal him which leads me to believe she has seen the show before, but was just really messed up on her timing.
Chris said yes and she went on and on . . . she cried and talked about how this was her destiny and she felt really strongly about it, etc etc etc. I’m sure Chris was not weirded out about it at all and envisioned a basket case for his future wife. Don’t all men?
Meanwhile the remaining girls who did receive roses debated the entire thing.
In other words, more math.
Jillian and her sidekick, Megan, snuck over to Chris’ house (which was empty because he was watching bikini-clad girls show their country sides) and had a look around.
Mackenzie started off by saying that her favorite thing in a guy is . . . wait for it . . . NOSES. And she likes BIG ones.
Public Safety Announcement: Do not wear that helmet if you’re trying to protect your brain. It doesn’t work.
There was a lot of this:
I don’t know.
Stuff like that cracks me up even though it scares me to death, too. I tend to laugh when I’m scared.
Call me dumb, but I have no idea what that meant. But I think I’d like to make it the new catch phrase for when someone is crazy or something is crazy or we have a new task that we have to do at school.
For example, if our principal says that we have to start turning in weekly data for the such-and-such and it should be such-and-such and it’s due on her desk every Monday before 8am, I think we should all say:
Run for your lives! It’s Onion Girl!!!!!!!
He also reconnected with Britt and got her a little gift. It was a card that said Free Kiss from Chris which was really cute, but it seems as if he went to Staples and made about sixty copies and he’s handing them out to every single girl including women on the crew.
He is not figuring out anything at all in the way of who might become his wife. It is driving me crazy. He has to start getting rid of some people already!
Seriously. This is what happened on the show.
But Jordan, Drunk Girl Number Two, was still drunk and that upset her so she interrupted someone else’s one-on-one time.
I watched it three times.
CLEARLY ABC HAS ONE OR TWO PICKS EACH WEEK. Otherwise, Chris must have been wearing that helmet and got into an accident that we do not know about.
Some girl that we never got to know and did not interview with the camera.
I kind of get why these girls are sad and want to fix what might be wrong because Chris kept Onion Girl! And Mackenzie!
IT IS SO WEIRD.
And I don’t feel like we’re getting to know Chris at all.
It was just a STRANGE show last night. It could just be me, but I don’t know. What did you all think???
Miss Kindergarten says
So strange!!!! I hate this season so far! #theyearthebachelorwentdownhill
Bizarre. It's lost its edge but I can't stop watching.

I was dying when that girl had him rub her belly button ring. Ewww! I'm at a loss for which was worse; that or her eating his face off. Plus they said on the first night that in this most shocking season ever a virgin goes to the fantasy suite…so I guess she's sticking around for a while. And what is with him keeping the loony girl? I feel offended on behalf of the girls who left and I too would be haunted for the rest of my life if got sent home before her. The girl cannot even form a sentence!
Julie Clark says
It was VERY weird!! I totally believe now that the show has them keep certain girls for entertainment purposes. There is no other reason he would keep those two weird girls.
Jill Sloothaak says
I agree. I was excited for Chris, but he is boring me to tears! And the girls he is keeping…..I just don't understand! Some guy would only have to talk to me about aliens one time before I would know that he was not the man for me.
Love these posts!

Thank you for making me belly laugh after a rough day. Love the way you tell it!
Strategies for Success says
What was weird, was that Mackenzie was so scared to tell him that she had a son. However, she was not scared at all to tell him that she might have seen an alien. CRAAAZIEEEE!
Do they not give these girl a mental stability test before they put them on. Or do they pay them to act that way to increase ratings?
Jerica J. Douglas says
This season is pretty boring to me. Or mabye it's Chris. Chris could be the problem. I'm rooting for Britt or Whitney but I'm pretty sure Chris won't pick them because Mackenzie is still on the show . . . and Onion girl. That's just weird.
I just love your posts!!! Thank you so much for making my day!! MESA VERDE!!!!
I believe he told Jimmy Kimmel that Onion Girl was Cra-Cra. .. might not have been his exact words, but you get the jist. I needed to read this today. . .just wanted a good laugh! Thanks for the updates (I believe I was vegging during my watching time. . it was Monday.)
Rhonda Hafner says
This made me giggle as I read it! Great writing style! Agree with all parts! Totally think ABC has a part in who stays! Crazy girls to keep people wondering! Could NOT believe the virgin…sure didn't act like one! We will see what next week brings…
Luv My Kinders says
Ok, so I totally agree I could not believe he kept Mackenzie, after the nose and alien comments. I was like WHAT? The same reaction I had about whack-a-doodle Mackenzie. I agree ABC must have the say on a coupe to keep the drama alive for the ratings. Let me just say, for being a virgin Ashley I. sure doesn't kiss like one, or dress like one. It was gross. I was not surprised about the two drunk girls. I like Brit as well, but with her crying I don't know that she can last. Looking forward to next weeks commentary!

You crack me up! I'm so glad you're still writing about The Bachelor, because we all need a little non-school Mesa Verde, if you know what I mean. And chocolate. But I have to agree completely with the Grand Canyon date – it was borinnnng and I can barely remember it or the girl, or anything they said or did. That doesn't bode well for their relationship! Hahaha! Okayyy, my version of memorable moments don't necessarily have to match up with theirs, but still…. Can't wait to watch it tomorrow and then read what you thought about it on Tuesday!
annie ramos says
hahaha.. This is the best. I can't wait to start up the Mesa Verde at my school! 🙂
