The Bachelorette

To be honest I've never been the biggest Ali fan but since I just keep getting lured into this show. I have to watch!

She is still annoying. Did they really have to show her walking down the beach with her shirt open- this feels very Jakeish to me- is he a producer?

Ok Bachelor #1 Frank is super cute. What?! He quit his job to move home and write screenplays- what the hell!?!? WHy not keep your job and do the screenplays in your free time? He has just become unattractive

I hate Jay's hair- not a fan.

Craig from downtown Toronto?!!? I hate the attention that he is paying to his hair- seems like a douche

Kyle- oh god that is some horrid baseball cap hair. He needs someone to go icefishing with?! Is this guy from KL? He wears a bullet around his neck!

Is there anything less attractive a barbwire tattoo?!!?! HE"S CANADIAN!?!?!? WHAT!?!? Well he's on crutches so that does make him a bit more kindred. He also has the douchepatch...lovely...

Phil is very attractive- he looks damn hot. And he's a triathlete!?!? Oh good lord call me!

Jonathan the weatherman looks like a baby. But he seems like a nice guy- he could be someone I like

Ty has a lab- that is a sign of a great man. Lost flashback- all you need is a lab to make you feel better. Oh no another singing cowboy!?

Chris- he seems like another nice guy. And he has nice eyes. And another lab- nice

Roberto- oh jesus way too many tattoos. Oh now they are flipping through guys too fast for me to write about all of them. I'm guessing they are not front runners since they aren't being profiled

Well someone got herself some extensions for this show.

I hate when these guys have a staged way they want to meet someone and they get thrown when they veer off script.

I'm loving Chris from Cape Cod- god he's hot

Oh god Frank is turning out to be way too weird for me!

I'm jealous of this guy's boot- when will I get to move up to the boot!?!? He is in WAY better shape than I am and able to do all the hopping on one foot. My foot might feel better if I was able to take all the weight off it completely. Damn my gimpy status!

She can't pronounce Roberto?!? What the hell is wrong with this girl?!?!

This Craig guy from Toronto spends WAY too much time on his hair

The guy who went down on one knee is way too weird for me- I don't like the stunts.

Steve from Cleveland is also super cute. Oh god the cowboy boots guy is super awkward- that was an awkward exchange

These guys are really enjoying making an impression with the way they come out of the limo

Frank is starting to border on obsessive stalker...

Ok I think the scrapbook is actually cute- the Canadian is a total douche

Wow that is a lot to tell someone your dad cheated during your first conversation- that is a lot to put on someone

Oh god Shooter- WHAT?!?!?!? That is why he is called that!?!? And he admitted this the first time he met her!?!? What the hell is wrong with him!?!?

I just adore Chris- he is amazing!

I think Craig is here for more hair products- HAHA.

Craig is unattractive with a lazy bassett hound face- not a fan

Oh she picked the crazyass Frank

She picked my hottie Chris- I love him


Why is she not picking Phil- he was also fantastic. He was probably too shy.

Yes Shooter you are going home- you never talk about that stuff the first time you meet someone!

At least Jay the lawyer can acknowledge he didn't present himself well

She seems to go far with Chris and Roberto and Kirk. Oh and Casey looks psychotic

My god look at all the places she gets to travel to- that's amazing

This was the first audiobook that I ever listened to- I decided to get one for my last trip to Kirkland. Little did I know it would be 15 1 hour CDs so it took me a while! My friend Lindsay recommended it to me and I have to say...I'm not sure if I would ever do it again with a fictional story. The narrator was HORRID!! HORRID!! The story involves 3 generations of an immigrant family- and this lameass narrator decided to use accents! It is the story of a Greek family that moved to Detroit- and it's full of Jewish, New York, Scottish, you name it accents. And good lord when he was speaking for a woman- I cringed. So I really think that may have ruined the story for me. If I were to do it again I would probably get an autobiography that has the author's voice- I think it would be less distracted.

As for the story- meh. I didn't love it. This is another book that had a lot of hype behind it that really did nothing for me. It is not a rereader. I found it to be HORRIBLY detailed with incredibly inane items yet when the story got juicy and interesting it got rushed. Not my thing.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

There was a lot of hype associated with this book- I have been hearing about it for a while and had quite a few recommendations to read it. This was a complete departure for me- I never usually read thrillers. But I have to say I did enjoy it- it was much more of a psychological puzzle kind of book- not a North American thriller full of gore. I have to admit I really only enjoyed one of the storylines- the whole financial journalist was completely boring to me- I only cared about the murder mystery. But on the whole a good book and a surprisingly quick read.

Time for the controversial statement- I hated Lisbeth Salander. I absolutely could not relate to the character. Everyone portrays her as a feminist hero and I just feel sorry for her. She is not someone I would want to be around. Maybe I'll read the second book and I'll get it but right now she is a very unappealing character to me.

Amazing! I love listening to Broadway boys

American Idol

Yet another week with music I hate- god I despise crooning. Frank Sinatra is the worst- dude was tone deaf!!! I know it sounds like I don't like any music- I swear my tastes are quite diverse. They just keep picking crap

I also don't enjoy Harry Connick Jr.'s music but I can acknowledge that he is talented

Aaron- I think this song is way too old for him. Thi sis awkward. Kid can't smile or exude charm.

Casey- I wish he would get rid of the gross ponytail. He seems a bit awkward without the guitar- he doesn't know what to do with himself. And the song is too big for him- he is a bit flat.

Crystal- I hate this and I'm completely bored but that's not her fault since the song is horrid. She is completely amazing though vocally as always. And I like her eye makeup

Mike- I am over this guy. There is something about him that really irritates me. It could be the tongue and licking the lips- that grosses me out. Seriously- I can't watch this guy it's so disgusting. He is way too good times for me

Lee- and he's screaming. This is the worst night ever.
