I have been an avid fan of The Bachelor since… wow. Forever? I think the only season I didn’t watch was Trista’s season. Figures. The one season that was actually successful. Anyway, I feel I need to comment about what an asshole douchebag Jason Mesnick is. I think I kinda knew all along that there was something not right about him, but this really is messed up. The thing that bothers me most, and it isn’t even him dumping Melissa on national TV, is that his poor little boy is probably so confused by all this. I don’t know if he’s actually been able to shield him from it, but I’m sure he got to know his future stepmom, Melissa and now he has to get to know this other woman who is replacing Melissa. This poor kid is going to have such an amazingly messed up life. I can’t imagine that he has any idea what stability is. Deep down, I never bought into the whole sweet, single dad routine. Uuugh. Anyway. Will this all deter me from watching more of this trainwreck tonight? Nope. I’ll be watching. Will I continue to watch The Bachelorette and The Bachelor? Yup. Why? It is my guilty pleasure. I don’t know why. It is a waste of time. Yet, I watch it. I think I just thank god that I found my soulmate and don’t have to go through any more dating BS.
What else will I be watching? The trainwreck that is American Idol season… uh… I don’t even know what season it is. 8? I thought for sure there was going to be some wicked good talent this season, but nope. I was mistaken. But, as a singer and my own personal judge, I’ll watch. Not sure that earplugs will do the job in keeping my ears from bleeding.
On a more personal note… I have started out the week on a great note. I work at a Credit Union and we are about to change our name. Being able to work on such a project is a marketer’s dream and I am so proud of the things I have accomplished thus far. My portfolio is exploding! Certainly now isn’t the time to be going out looking for new jobs. My husband called this “Obama Thinking”. I prefer to look at it this way: even if I FOUND another job, companies are NOT paying people what they used to, so until the market rebounds and companies start paying people what they are worth I’m going to stay put in my happy little comfy world. Anyway. I digress. I got a lot of high fives from my boss this week on some of the design work that I’ve been doing. Nothing like good warm fuzzies from work to make the week go faster!
