"So, how much would it be to get a table?" I asked this question to the bounciest of bounce-bag bouncers who was currently checking my ID to grant me entrance into one of the trendiest bars in town.   It was my good friend's bachelorette party and I was really only asking because I more so wanted somewhere to put my purse and be able to order a drink without getting my leg humped rather than flaunt the bottle service.  "Oh yeah, that's not gonna happen," was his oh so kind response....more

Handing Out Roses

The last time I left you I had just completed the first dates with three guys I met through craigslist, Mike, RJ, and Daniel. If we are keeping with the Bachelorette theme, it would be time for a rose ceremony and another week of dates. Mike would get a rose, because he's sweet and just the type of guy I grew up dreaming of. {Then Chris Harrison would pop in and announce this is the final rose.} RJ would get the rose, because he's different and the kind of guy I have been dreaming about recently. {Again, Chris Harrison, "Daniel, I'm sorry....more

Why the Next Season of "The Bachelor" Needs to be at the Olive Garden

Everyone wonders why the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise has had ten bajillion seasons and only two marriages.  I think the answer is pretty simple.  You need to have a season at the Olive Garden.  I’m serious.  Take away the once-in-a-lifetime adventures, luxurious fantasy suites, hair and makeup teams, and outrageous clothing budgets and have the season take place in a mall.  They can bond o...more

The Bachelorette recap: It's Gettin' Serious, Y'All! Seriously.
