The Bachelor...

I have to admit I watch little television these days......but one Monday night my television was on the channel "THE BACHELOR" tv show came on. Now I have no desire to watch this absurd show......but I did catch some of it as I spoke with someone on the phone. The episode I saw last really bothered me.

Basically if you don't know what THE BACHELOR is all is about MILLIONAIRE MEN who for whatever reason....cannot seem to find themselves a woman to marry. HUM......I find that rather odd right there. Perhaps they are not finding the RIGHT woman ...someone who is able to see past the dollar signs and get past hearing the chachings going off in their ears?

I don't know....but the latest bachelor is BRAD WOMACK from Texas.....and he is to the segment in the show where he has narrowed his choices down from 25 women to just 3.
What bothered me about the last episode was this.
Basically...this was the night of the OVERNIGHT DATES......which means BRAD gets to drink the milk of all three women before actually buying the cow......and one of those women.....well in fact two will actually end up going home eventually. ONLY ONE will end up being a woman he reportedly will propose to.

NOW......what I cannot imagine is this. WHAT woman in her right mind would sleep with Brad knowing he was going to be sleeping with these other two women as well....apparently one night right after the other???? YUCK YUCK YUCK!!!!! Not even 36 hours passing in between trysts?? DO they all have to subject to physicals to prove they have no communicable diseases? What does this show say to any young viewer out there? I mean it bothered me for crap sake...but maybe I am weird. Maybe my morals are higher than most?

Maybe the women really did not care and fell for his looks or charm and of course let's not forget the MILLION buckos in the bank? Maybe they wanted a one-nighter to risk it all to hopefully CATCH him and prove to him they were his match? HIS SOUL MATE?

Is it possible to find a soul mate on a TV show called THE BACHELOR? I mean the show selects 25 women at random I hear......and what....he has to spoon the cream from that crop? WHAT IF HE FINDS NO MATCH? THAT would be a show! What if he said "you know what.....NONE of you are for me!"

Personally....if I was falling in love with someone as these women have all professed of dear Bradley......why would any of them not apparently mind if he was dipping his honey spoon into the other nectar pots? AND perhaps even one right before their turn? That makes me want to vomit.

yeah...I do think too much.

Oh...and Brad's comment that he was going to KEEP AN OPEN MIND and focus on the woman he was with at the moment struck a chord with me. I mean he is reportedly looking for the love of his lifetime...yet remains open to sleeping with all three women....going through the motions of sincere care and affection for each one....I guess be SURE he picks the right one? Sounds more to me like keeping an open ticket to the ballpark!

and why do I suddenly hear the song "LOVE THE ONE YOU'RE WITH" playing in my mind?

How To Get Your Ass Kicked by JC Penney!

Image Hosted by

A JC Penney catalog from 1977. It's not often blog fodder just falls in my lap, but holy hell this was two solid inches of it, right there for the taking. I thumbed through it quickly and found my next dining room set, which is apparently made by adding upholstery to old barrels:

Also, I am totally getting this for my bathroom:

There's plenty more home furnishings where those came from, however I'm not going to bore you with that. Instead, I'm going to bore you with something else. The clothes.

The clothes are fantastic.

Here's how to get your ass kicked in elementary school:

Just look at that belt. It's like a boob-job for your pants. He probably needed help just to lift it into place. The belt loops have to be three inches long. And way to pull them up to your armpits, grandpa.

Here's how to get your ass kicked in high school:

This kid looks like he's pretending to be David Soul, who is pretending to be a cop who is pretending to be a pimp that everyone knows is really an undercover cop. Who is pretending to be 15.

Here's how to get your ass kicked on the golf course:

This "all purpose jumpsuit" is, according to the description, equally appropriate for playing golf or simply relaxing around the house. Personally, I can't see wearing this unless you happen to be relaxing around your cell in D-block. Even then, the only reason you should put this thing on is because the warden made you, and as a one-piece, it's slightly more effect ive as a deterrent.

Here's how to get your ass kicked pretty much anywhere:

If you look at that picture quickly, it looks like Mr. Bob "No-pants" Saget has his hand in the other guy's pocket. In this case, he doesn't, although you can tell just by looking at them that it's happened - or if it hasn't happened it will. Oh yes. It will. As soon as he puts down his matching coffee cup.

Here's how to get your ass kicked at the beach:

He looks like he's reaching for a gun, but you know it's probably just a bottle of suntan lotion in a holster.

How to get your ass kicked in a meeting:

If you wear this suit and don't sell used cars for a living, I believe you can be fined and face serious repercussions, up to and including termination. Or imprisonment, in which case you'd be forced to wear that orange jumpsuit.

How to get your ass kicked on every day up to and incl uding St. Patrick's Day

I don't believe that color exists in nature. There is NO excuse for wearing either of these ensembles unless you're working as a body guard for the Lucky Charms leprechaun.

As does your search for chest hair.

And this -- Seriously. No words.

Oh wait, it turns out that there are words after all. Those words are W... T.. F... I'm guessing the snap front gives you quick access to the chest hair. The little tie must be the pull tab.

Also, judging by the sheer amount of matching his/hers outfits, I'm guessing that in 1977 it was considered pretty stylish for couples to dress alike. These couples look happy, don't they?

I am especially fond of this one, which I have entitled "Cowboy Chachi Loves You Best."

And nothing showcases your everlasting love more than the commitment of matching bathing suits. That, and a blonde girl with a look on her face that says "I love the way your junk fits against that fabric."

Then, after the lovin', you can relax in your one-piece matching terry cloth jumpsuits:

I could go on, but I'm tired, and my eyes hurt from this trip back in time. I think it's the colors. That said, I will leave you with these tasteful little numbers:

Man.....that's sexy!

orbs in the cemetery...

Yep. I went with my uncle and grandmother and son to the cemetery yesterday to put new seasonal flowers on the family graves there and while there I did snap a few shots. It was late in the afternoon....early evening actually so it turned dark before we left. Here they are......and the bottom ones have some orbs that showed up...which did not totally surprise me......and the PINK ORB made an appearance again! I am only going to post a couple of the pics I took and I took the liberty of circling the orbs with red ink.....not that they needed to be pointed out....but in case you have a hard time seeing them....this will show you where they are:

first day of Daylight Savings time...

and I have to admit it was rather weird because my body never uses a clock to wake up so it is physiologically geared to continue waking up at the same time every day. SO today I woke up at 4:00 a.m. ready to get up......since that used to be 5:00 a.m. for me. I decided perhaps that was a bit too early and stayed in bed but I never really did fall back to sleep well. AND now because I did that I have been fighting a migraine all day.

I don't know what it is about Sundays. Maybe because in the past I have always gone to church and then visited people on Sunday afterwards....or took drives...went places, etc. BUT Sunday is one of my days off and every time when I think about all the things I should be doing....I can rarely bring myself to ever actually do any of them. I would rather go have fun.....take a drive....get outdoors and do something....go visit someone. Today has been really bad for me in that respect. I would have been better off just going somewhere I more than I have actually accomplished today.

AND WHAT ABOUT OHIO STATE BUCKEYES YESTERDAY!!??? WOW. They have been amazing. I wish I could get to an actual game in person! I am ticked off we did not get to see the game broadcast in our area....but I did get to listen to it on the radio and online so I am thankful for that.

Otherwise...maybe today all I will work on is making a grand list of all the things I still need to do around here and in my life in general. At least that is something I know I could actually accomplish today.

AND today has seemed incredibly long.....I mean it is only 3:00 p.m. now and it seems like it should be at least 5:00 or so.

I have mixed up more cookie dough for gingerbread cookies since that has become a staple in Noah's diet. I have the icing mixed up. All I have left to do there is bake them and ice them. No biggie.

Dishes are calling.....
