(Overdue) Confessions

A week or two (or three) ago (it's all a blur) I spent three hours working out at the gym.  Because I was watching The Bachelor.  The Season Finale.  Which was 2 hours.  What I didn't realize is that the "After The Final Rose" episode would come on immediately after.  And then I couldn't leave.  So I did three hours of (slow) cardio.

Embarrassing, yes.



The week before that, I'd missed the "Women Tell All" episode (also 2 hours).  And we don't have tivo.  So later that week, when everyone was in bed, I plugged my headphones into my mac and started watching it online.  It was late.  It was dark.  And suddenly someone puts there little hand on my shoulder.  And I about had a heart attack.

Turned out it was just Noah (who is a little insomniac lately).  But I couldn't calm down.  All I remember is the words "freak" and "crap" coming out of my mouth a lot for the next 30 seconds.

And now Noah keeps saying "freak."



As for The Bachelor...
I don't really believe in it.  I never plan to watch it.  I don't start out watching it.  But (usually on one of Paul's call nights) I'll be flipping channels and suddenly there it is.  And then I'm hooked.
But after this season, I swore I was done.
And then they announced that Jillian would be the next Bachelorette.
I love Jillian.
So I might just have to watch one more season.
But she did say she doesn't want her dad seeing anymore hot tub scenes - so maybe I can watch it guilt-free : )

One more thing...
Paul is so embarrassed that I watch The Bachelor.

This made me laugh so hard...made me remember watching the Bachelorette back in college with my roommates forever ago.

pete would probably be pretty embaressed if he knew the shows I watch when he's on call. what's a lonely wife to do?

Oh my gosh I am into the Bachelor too! But I really did hate Jason after the whole "after the final rose" escapade. And I also love Jillian! Don't be ashamed. I think there are lots of people who like it and they are just ashamed to admit it :) At least we own up to it!

Umm...my husband is embarassed for me too for the same reason :)
And I, like you, swore I would never watch it after the STUPID ending to this season...but I also love Jillian...so I will probably get sucked into it all over again.

Okay I confess I was into the Bachelor this season...I think it was all the sweet single dad stuff, anyway Shane is so embarrassed that I watched it and it was hilarious!

I am the same way - hooked and now I am so mad at the show!! But Jillian pulled me right back in! (unfortunately for greg!)

I think our husbands secretly want to watch it with us but they pretend they are embarrassed that we watch it because it's the MACHO thing to do.

Sarah said...

I totally watched, too! :) Unfortunately I was eating treats at a finale party and not exercising the entire time! PS - Christian is also so embarrassed that I watch!

Carrie Anne said...

oh that's hilarious! i haven't watched it in YEARS but ended up hooking my headphones one night, too, to see what all the hype was about...got sucked in to watching that final rose segment when i needed some winding down time. it's b/c our husbands leave us too much!:)
