The Bachelor III: Andrew Firestone

weather: cloudy
outside: 9°C
mood: callous
Husband Guy says I'm more callous than Simon Cowell. *evil grin* It's funny because I took an instant liking to SC when I saw him during the auditions in Idol I. And a lot of the things he says on public record, I agree with.

Anyway, the point of that was that I randomly caught "The Bachelor III" last night as I plopped down for my approximately bi-weekly tubing*.

If you're mean to stupid people, are you still mean? Okay, so Husband Guy and I are Certified Meanies™ then. But these people rrrrrreeeeeeeaaaaaaallllllllyyyyyyyy deserve it.

What's with Fox picking only fugly guys whose names begin with the letter 'A'?

Andrew is SO not marriage material. He's divorce material though. >KD

Gosh, Fox Producers, how long did it take you to find that many women to make up the IQ and depth of a dog piss puddle?

* - As in Cathode Ray Tubing, in a pile of Phosphor Cells, not the Frolicking In The Snow kind of tubing =)

And I only subject myself to that non-interactive CRT crap because M-I-L Woman** says that I shouldn't sit in front of a computer as that could damage my ovaries. Yes, of course, computers do nothing to Husband Guy's testicles that are on the outside of his body and less protected than my ovaries are. *grumble* Here, have some Sarcasm Cleaner® ... *sprit* *sprit* ... and a sponge. Your keyboard's all disgusting.

** - She's not that bad overall. I've seen much worse Mothers-In-Law. She's just a bit naïve/impressionable when it comes to health/medical issues because it's not really her thing (finance is her thing). She's also quicker than most Ms-I-L to get it if you explain things to her or challenge the erroneous mode of thinking. I can't remember if I rebutted her on this one, sometimes I don't bother.

On occasion, she comes up with some gems. And it's usually not on her own. She's into this tiered marketing thing that pushes health supplements. There are people involved in that who make up health/medical shit that sounds legit all the time. It wouldn't surprise me if they told her that. There's really nothing you can do about those people because they're "trying to help" and they genuinely believe that what little they know is absolute.

*boggles at MIL Woman's blatant sexism about having kids* Please tell me she's not the stereotypical should-have-been-born-a-few-centuries-ago chinese MIL, where everything is your fault and all fertility problems could not possibly be related to her darling son because of course he's got enough sperm to repopulate the whole world if he so chose.

*squeegees the sarcasm cleaner off her laptop*

It's usually not on her own, she's into this tiered marketing thing that pushes health supplements, so there are other people who make up shit that sounds legit all the time. It wouldn't surprise me if they told her that.

BWAAAAHAHAHAAAAA!!!
I saw the "The Bachelor III" last night as well. "Car accident TV" Mike and I call it - it's horribly gruesome, but you just...can't...stop....watching!


"Gosh, Fox Producers, how long did it take you to find that many women to make up the IQ and depth of a dog piss puddle?"

Likely from their viewers demographic, these ladies grew up watching Kelly Bundy, don't forget.

My keyboard is way beyond a simple cleaning of Sarcasm Cleaner.

:D

And about the computer thing -- can that possibly be true? Personally I think you're more likely to do damage to your ovaries if you stand in front of an operating microwave on a daily basis.

There are people who with computers all day that are still breeding. Not necessarily geeks, but admin staff, artists, designers, writers as well. It's obviously not affecting the ability to conceive.

find something that has some redeemign quality

Yeah, it's for therapeutic shallowness. That and I still don't really get the concept of the clicker. =} I grew up with a clickerless TV, so I tend to just turn the TV on and whatever channel it happens to be, I'll watch whatever is on =D

Ah, yes. The woman who lived across the street from me when I was growing up told her children that red M&M's give you cancer.
Oy.

And that comes from studies that link food colouring to abnormal cell growth. Which is true, there _is_ a correlation, but exactly what happens, which comes first, what causes what, is unclear. Correlation does not mean causality.

You see how it gets miscommunicated? Someone probably gave the analogy that red M&Ms could cause cancer and she took it as absolute.

Yeah they can't seem to pick good guys. Trista and Ryan are probably going to tie the knot. Why can't they find more "bachelors" like her? I never really thought that Evan and Zora would get married although I admit i was hooked on that show.

Really? I thought they were toast...

Evan and Zora

They _were_ the best match, weren't they? But, they were both kinda dippy. I'd have no qualms about lying to get ½mil, then walk away from it either.

Well they're still together as far as I know. THey both were very marriage minded, unlike the other folk.

I also agree that Evan and Zora were both dippy. But I didn't get the impression that Evan was looking for a potential wife. And I also didn't get the feeling that they were even remotely madly in love either. They didn't know that they could get 1/2 million each, so I don't think that she was lying.

fame? on the Bachelor they just get each other, so I'm not sure that Evan and Zora thought that their show would be any different. They seemed genuinely suprised at the check.
