Whew! Its been a long time, hasn't it? Sorry for the delay in posts, the holidays were all-consuming (in the best possible way, Mom and Dad!) and we've had back to back guests visiting our new abode in San Francisco. Speaking of which, y'all should come visit! We are trying to recruit as many friends as possible to move here and enjoy the loveliness that is Northern California. We even have a nautical themed bed for you to sleep in. And a dog which will perch himself so daintily under the Golden Gate Bridge for a photo to send your friends and family!

First, can we talk about the new bachelor? UGH. It's Sean Lowe. I have major issues with this guy. I didn't like him on Emily's season, and I still don't like him. His face is persistently red and I find him completely disingenuous. I will bite my tongue on my feelings about his family in fear of retaliation from the Karmic Gods, but OH MY GOD how I am going to make it through a season of my favorite show with this guy?!!!!!!! What's odd is that my girlfriends seem to love him. I need to be convinced, can you convince me blog-reading friends? Why should I like red-faced Sean? Maybe if he tints his eyelashes I'll grown a deeper appreciation for him. It's worth a shot.
On the flip side, what I love most about this show is that my husband is also a closeted (or maybe not so closeted) Bachelor/Bachelorette fan, so Monday nights at the Brasfield house are off the hook.

What's awesome about this scenario is that Tyler chimes in on his favorite contestants and we are able to have meaningful conversations about participants from seasons past. For example, last night he said, "hey they should bring back that Tennessee chick I liked from Ben's season," and then BAM! in walks Kacie B. with her long tanned legs and cute accent.
Tyler should totally be a Bachelor producer. He'd be making love connections all over the place. So naturally, the whole show we take mental notes on our favorites: best personality, prettiest, the most (ahem) "free spirited" on the overnight dates, and most bat-shit crazy.
BUT MAN! This season is providing some GREAT material, and we're only one episode in!
Naturally, my favorite was the 50 Shades of Grey chick who basically grinded the camera for a good hour straight in her black sparkly dress.
Then there was the girl who said the only thing standing between her and true love was her missing arm.
OH, and what about the girl in the wedding dress? Was she the one that was drunk the whole time? I forget, but she was a keeper for sure! (or not)
And finally, that girl in the blue dress scared the crap outta me. But she's gone now, so it's on to the others.
|Boom. Now This Is How Casting Is Done.|
This season's cast is seriously amazing. But again, Sean disappoints. Why...WHY...was Sean making it rain with those roses?!!!!!! C'mon Sean, another reason I dislike you. Make the ladies WORK for your red-faced self.
My favorite part of the season premiere is the clip at the end of what's to come. The tears! The drama! The neck brace! Oh my! I CANNOT WAIT. You all have to email me or text me when you're watching the show so we can have a running commentary. Or come over and watch it with the hubs and me! It's a rollicking good time, and we'd love you to join.
In conclusion, I leave you with one final question to ponder. Why...WHY was red-faced Sean chosen as the Bachelor and not Arie??? I mean, I'm not the hugest fan of Arie either, but for whatever reason he's got this kissing thing down (or so he thinks), so I'd at least like to see all the girls start pulling hair over how many he can make out with in one night. Right?????
Your thoughts from last night's episode? Let's make predictions on who is going to win. Tyler and I think this girl:
Will Sean and his leading lady really find true love?
Amendment: As of January 9th, I now support Bentley Williams as the next Bachelor. I mean, if there is ever a guy who deserves his own show it's this guy:
