Really Quickly--- The Take Home Message: You're Worth It!!!

Has anyone else noticed how Brad is always saying "Can I borrow you really quickly? Just real quick?" Or when someone steals him away, he'll be like "Sorry, I'm just gonna go with her really quickly." Well "Really Quickly" is the opposite of my blog this week. So I would just like to take a moment to apologize to my 11 followers and to the 33 people who viewed my page yesterday and found no blog.That's right!!! I recently discovered the "Stats" tab on my blog, and it's been quite fun to see some info on how many people looked at my blog, etc. Also you can see search terms that people used on Google which led them to the blog. But don't worry, I can't tell who anyone specifically IS, so if I have any stalkers or lurkers out there, you are still safe.

But there is one issue I would like to address. One person searched "Emily on the Bachelor looks older than 23" and landed on my blog. And I just want to say that I AGREE!!!!! She DOES look older than 23 and I have been meaning to point that out! I think several of those girls look older than their alleged age, and for the sake of decency, I really hope that some of them ARE older!!

Anyway, let's get to it!Michelle wakes up with a black eye. WTF??? Seriously. She is such a nut job, I'm not really even sure what to say about her anymore. The main thing I find myself wondering about her is: "Is this chick for real??" Or is this some deliberate psycho character she is playing just for fun? Well, last week as I was perusing the competition (other Bachelor blogs) I came across a tidbit of info. Psycho Michelle is an actress. And here is the trailer for her movie:

Hmm... interesting that her little caption on The Bach describes her as a hairstylist from Utah. HA!!! Yeah right. I think this movie makes it quite clear that she's an actress living here in LA. So she's pretty much so weird and obviously crazy that she isn't really worth my time going on about it.
So Chris Harrison pops in on the girls and surprises them once again before they have a chance to put any make-up on!He reminds us all once again that this week there will be three dates: two one on one dates and one group date. One on one dates are great, but if you don't get a rose, you go home STAT, so you need to have your bags packed. Complex!
So Chantal packs up her pretty, hot pink, plastic luggage in preparation for her one on one date.
Brad shows up and then a big yellow helicopter flies to the Bachelor mansion, making all the other girls jealous. Brad whisks Chan away to Catalina Island. I have been there once with my Dad... who by the way I've been meaning to state that I have a great Dad. I just thought I should put it out there since this season has been so much about bum Dads.
Turns out they are going scuba diving. Chantal reveals that she does NOT just get in the ocean. That is a big deal to her! Hahaha!!! You guys, I do NOT just write this blog.

Oh wait... yes I do.
She declares that she will go to the bottom of the ocean with Brad, because he is worth it! So, that is when I had my first revelation of the night. Is Brad really worth it?? IS he??? He is only some guy she just met. I think if anything, she should go to the bottom of the ocean because SHE is worth it, and she thinks it's worth taking a chance for HERSELF that she might find someone special. You can't say some guy you met five minutes ago is worth anything.

But whatever. I kind of like Brad and Chantal together. There are other girls in the house that I like, but that I really don't think are good with Brad. But Chantal, even though she is ten inappropriate years younger than him, I sort of think it's ok. Like at least she has lived some life and been through things, such as a divorce. And she sees more mature than some of the ladies... if she could get her tears under control.
BRAD: Chantal, will you accept this rose?
CHANTAL: Of course I will!! Do you think I would ever NOT accept a rose from you??!!

Uhm, way to play hard to get, C! Don't make it too easy from him!!! Have you learned nothing from my blog???!!
Meanwhile back at the mansion, the ring-and-run-bandit strikes again. A date card is left in his wake. Ashley S, Stacey, Lindsey, Britt, Meghan, Alli, Lisa, Ashley H and Jackie are invited on a group date.
Michelle is not invited, so she needs some time to sulk alone with a camera crew on the wicker bench and pine away for a one on one date.
Awww... Brad looks so cute and happy to see everyone! I think now that he is getting to know them all better and getting into the swing of things, he is starting to feel more comfortable and let his guard down a little.
Hmm... so this group date is a session with Dr. Drew of Loveline fame. The main thing I have to say about Lovelines, is that I remember when Adam Carolla was on it, and I found him to be hilarious.
Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of Dr. Drew. He's ok. But I really don't buy into everything he says. I have definitely heard him give a lot of bum advice. Maybe he has some good points, but I dunno. There's advice and then there's soundbites.
Brad was super eager to talk about his inner feelings though! He told Drew he wants to figure out with whom he is compatible.Hilarious!!!! Uhmmmmm, so tell me: is getting drunk part of a normal therapy session??? Because if so, then I've really been missing out!! So during Drunk Therapy with Dr. Drew, we learn that Ashley H. is retreating big time, that Stacey once cheated in college, and that Brad NEVER cheated... not even as a little boy on the playground. I support that.

So after Drew and Brad get the women's emotions all riled up, they then take the date back to Brad's mansion and more specifically into his hot tub. This is so that in case they weren't already feeling uncomfortable enough after the session with Drew, they can now compare bodies in the hot tub and get some body image issues going.
And just to ensure that we at home can also start feeling insecure, Brad keeps all his clothes on, so that no one is distracted from her own body image issues by ogling Brad. What the hell, Brad? You let all the ladies get naked, and you just hang out in sweats?? Pop that shirt off, B! He probably feels embarrassed hanging out with all these girls that could be his daughters. Did anyone else get the vibe that it was a pool party while the parents were out of town, and Brad was the older brother assigned to watch his little sister's friends, but was secretly checking them all out? No?? Just me??? Ok.

So now they all start cat-fighting over some one on one time with Brad. The main player is Ashley H.
Look at that. Sorry, but if you have a bad botox job on your forehead, then I am going to call you out. So basically, this is how I feel about her. I do get that she is being annoying and jealous and totally insecure. But for some reason, I'm really not that mad at her. I think she really has every right to feel all worked up and jealous and freaked out. Who wouldn't be if some guy you were into was playing around with thirteen other women?? So, I think that if she was really into herself, then she should have just left. Why stick around and take the abuse? Not everyone is insane enough strong enough to put up with that.I really did love the part though when he walked up to the hot tub about to give out the rose... then Ashley H. started spewing some negativity... and then he suddenly changed his mind, and gave it to someone else!!! Hahahaha!!!! That was hilarious.

But seriously if you were Britt.. the one who got the rose "instead"... wouldn't you be kind of hurt and upset to know you weren't going to originally get the rose??!!! HAHAHAHA!!! OUCH!!!!
Also, sorry but she looks anorexic.

Ok, so the next day, Brad shows up at the mansion to take crazy-ass-Michelle on her one on one date. But FIRST, he pulls Ash H. aside to give her a stern talking to.
BRAD: Don't ever sass me again, Ashley H. Stop making any mention or expression of your perfectly normal feelings of jealousy and frustration. Pretend like this is normal and continue to lay in wait for me until I decide it's time for you to go home.

ASHLEY H: Yes, Master Brad. You are worth it. I really am NOT jealous or anything!!! Our connection is real!
Michelle gets all psycho and mad.... as she does. This is because Brad is spending time on Ashley H. when it's supposed to be HER (Michelle's) day. Chantal calls her out, which I totally supported. I really am starting to like Chantal more this episode.
My favorite moment of Chantal's was when she was like "Michelle is insane, she just grabbed his arm... hopefully she doesn't act like that on their date... wait, actually, hopefully she DOES act like that on their date." I think it showed that she isn't crazy, insane and jealous and viewing the whole thing as some sort of competition. And I also liked how she was like "Well, if he DOES pick Michelle in the end, then he certainly isn't the guy for me."

Seriously, right???? I mean, we can't get upset with ourselves if men have bad taste in women. That's their prerogative.
Ok you guys, so now I'm starting to get nervous. For two reasons. One - like crazy Michelle, I too am afraid of heights. But secondly and more importantly, because the Bachelor/-ette ALWAYS picks the person that they go on the crazy height-date with. Does this mean that Brad is actually going to pick Michelle in the end?????????? Seriously??? He does seem really into her. Let's think back to Bachelor/-ettes past.

Exhibit A - Ali picked Roberto...after jumping off something w/ him (I think)
Exhibit B - Jake picked Vienna after jumping off a bridge with her and crying like a little baby
Exhibit C - Jillian picked Ed after zip-wiring across some tall buildings
Exhibit D - Jason Mesnick picked... actually I can't remember this far back. But if he went on a jumping date w/ either Molly or Melissa, it is another example of my point!
So yeah, I'm getting kind of worried. And Brad seems truly blind to what a bat-sh!t-crazy she is! He's like seriously into her and finds her sexy and fun, etc. It's really pretty weird and creepy if you ask me.
So back at the mansh, the girls are talking about the Michelle and Brad. And I think that Chantal looked really cute in her little bed-time glasses!! Hahahaha!!! She is really pretty and there are a couple other girls that put on glasses at night, which I think is cute.Anyway, Michelle gets a rose, which is annoying on two levels. One obviously because she is Michelle. And two because - when are we going to get to see some one on one dates where the chick DOESN'T get the rose???? Those are the best and most interesting!!! I love watching bad dates flop and then the girl not get the rose. That is when we get such classic lines as "He's not attracted to me???? Who does he think he is??? God???!!?" --- Natalie who loves bears.
Now Brad goes and has another session with his therapist. Uhhh.... so are we going to have to watch him talking to his therapist every episode??? Because it's pretty boring and it's taking up valuable airtime that could be devoted to cat fights... or Brad taking his shirt off.
Finally it's time for the cocktail party. So we didn't see two of my favorite girls this week -- Emily (everyone's fave) and Shawntel (my fave bc she is a pretty funeral director!) Shawntel takes him aside and forces him to pick her up, then kiss her, etc. Yikes! Shawn, I do like you... but it's never a good sign when you have to tell a guy to kiss you!! Sorry!!
Brad, like the rest of America, missed Emily this week. Therefore, he prepared a little picnic for her to recreate their first date. I don't know... I think she can do better than Brad, and I'm really starting to hope she is the next Bachelorette. I've been starting to think ahead to the future about that. I think Emily would be a good choice.This is the part where Chantal starts crying because she feels "stupid" for having felt something strong for Brad on their date. Yeah, I would feel that way too!! I think stupid is a good word!
Oh yeah, did anyone else see this? Brad did the dorkiest little hop-skip after he laid out the blanket for Emily!!! OMGGG!!! Hahahaaaaa... sometimes I just feel like "Awwww... OMG Brad you are just so innocent!!" Hahahaa!!! I think he is genuine. ??? Is he?? I don't know. Ahhh!!
All right, finally it's time for the rose ceremony. This one was uneventful. No one runs out or anything scandalous. He just gives out a bunch of roses. The one thing though that DID really annoy me was how Ashley H got the last rose. OBVIOUSLY!!! That was soooooo obvious!!!!! I smelled that one coming from a mile away. And I don't really like the overtones that it's like a WARNING to her or something that she better watch her step and not cross Brad again, else next time she will NOT get the last rose!! Screw that, screw the show and screw Brad... she should just go home. Who needs to put up with this?
Going home are: Lindsey, Meghan and Stacey. I have a couple questions:
1. What is the difference between Alli and Meghan? Are they, or are the not the same person?
2. Who is Lindsay?
3. Who is Lisa?
4. Who is Marissa?Seriously. Start sending people home that we KNOW. Or starting letting us get to know the people he is sending home!!I think Stacey got tossed out because she cheated!!! Ouch!! That hurts!!! I guess that is the risk of being honest!! You never know who is going to accept you for who you are!!

Yours in the Single Life,
Julie Julie

PS - Looks like next week, Shawntel gets all kinds of presents from Brad... which normally annoys me.
BUT.... looks like she is getting PURSES!!!!
What brand is that?

The Take Home Message: F Men Who Aren't Into You

Also --- thank your lucky stars if you have a great dad.

Well, week three is upon us... and things are NOT going to get any easier. In fact, they are only going to get MORE emotional, Harrison reminds us as we get a glimpse of the girls without make up and a hint of who is GENUINELY hot and who's painting that sexy on.There will be two one-on-one dates and another group date.The first one-on-one date goes to Ashley S. "Ashley S, let's find our love song."

Brad comes to pick up Ash at the mansion and psycho-Michelle starts spewing her vituperative jealousy.Brad and Ash go to some recording studio (the name of which is meant to impress us, but that I can't currently remember). They proceed to sing mercilessly butcher the living hell out of "Kiss From A Rose." I'm actually surprised that it took them fifteen seasons to drag this song out.Ashley reveals to the camera that this was her and her Dad's special song. And that her Dad has passed away. AWKWARD!!!! And what a coincidence I'm sure! The producers had NOTHING to do with this.Really awkward!! I really felt bad for her and for Brad. That would be hard, if that was your Dad's song... and it's also awkward for Brad, who had no clue.... until they sat down for dinner and wine and Ashley revealed how her Dad had passed away and that "Kiss From A Rose" was their special song.Then Brad felt like a total jack-ass for making her sing that song during their mock-recording session.

All right. So, I really like Ashley S. I think she is cute, and I do think she is pretty mature. I really did like how last week, she was telling that crazy Melissa "I don't care what happened, calm down!" And Melissa was older, but Ashley had a maturity and calmness about her that made Melissa listen to her. But I really don't think there's much chemistry here (between Brad and Ash). Nothing against Brad, but I think she could do better. Look, I really hate to keep harping on the age gap here, but she is just too young for him!!! She is young and cute and fresh... what does she need with a 38 year old with all that baggage and years of therapy under his belt?? And Brad needs someone whose baggage matches his. Ashley could be with some younger, cute, high energy, enthusiastic young man who has a lot going for him.

SAD DAD STORY count: 1 (not including Brad's)

Back in the mansion, the group date card arrives: "Love hurts." In attendance will be: Lindsey, Shawntel, Alli, Britt, Kimberly, Sarah, Chantal, Ashley H, Lisa, Stacey, Marissa, Michelle. And you guys, Michelle is PISSED that she's stuck on the group date as opposed to getting a one on one date. Well, like I said last week, Brad is interested in one thing from her. He sees her as a psychotic play-thing that he can't quite resist. She is insane and disrespectful, and in being so is asking to be treated the same. There's no need for Brad to take her out one on one. That kind of crazy will stick around no matter how you treat it. So he can just stick her on a group date, put minimal effort into her and get what he wants.
The women pile into a church van and go meet Brad at another soundstage.Wait, what? I thought we already did the acting date last week. Now we're filming an action-adventure movie???? Hmmm.... you know how I'm not interested in sports and football?? Well yeah, I kind of feel the same way about action-adventure movies.... particularly the action scenes.Hmmm... so yeah, this date was pretty boring to me. Let's see... what of interest happened??This chick was worried about getting pit stains... I guess she doesn't realize that pit stains usually appear on GRAY work-out clothes, not WHITE. What else?
Don't they all look hot in their work-out clothes?? When I put on my work-out clothes and go to the gym, I always THINK that I look like the above.... but I also have this little nagging voice in the back of my head that tells me maybe that's not quite accurate.Say what??? When did Rebecca Gayheart join the cast???

So, obviously I liked Shawntel on this date. BTW --- seriously WHY are there two Shawn/Chan-tel/tals??? That is some SERIOUSLY annoying shiz right there. I'd rather they were straight up two chicks with the same name and different last initials. These homophone-names that are spelled different and weird anyway are really cramping my style. So SHAWNTEL, the funeral director is the one who kicked ass.In this shot, she does look like an action hero who has come to rescue the gratuitously handsome captive. I think she's really pretty.And I thought it was HILARIOUS how Michelle was like "It is OFFENSIVE that Shawntel kissed him like that." HAHAHAHAAA!!! I am the queen of looking for irrelevant things to be offended by. (In fact my New Year's resolution last year was to stop being offended... I probably need to re-up it this year). So, I thought this was a pretty far/funny reach for something to be offended by.

Ok, so I also like Shawntel due to her profession. Funeral directing was the family business on my Mom's side. Long live the funeral directors!!! (Hahahha... get it??)All right, so the ladies follow mother duck Brad over to a wrap-party. He dives into the pool with his clothes on.
Some ladies do the same... and before we know it, CHANTAL steals him away for some one on one time. She didn't learn her lesson last week and starts crying. But I didn't really get the vibe that she was a drama queen... I more got the vibe that she was DRUNK off her ass... and you know... sometimes when girls drink too much, they start crying and spouting off emotional stuff.

She is like "I don't just do this." Oh lord. Why do girls always say that?? Men are proud of how MANY women they have bagged and women are proud of how FEW men they have bagged. Let's all get over this counting business, shall we? We are all grown ups here. Oh wait... no we're not!!! Only Brad is! The rest of you ladies are precious young things.Also, of course the most hilarious moment of this conversation was when Brad was like "Neither do I..... Oh wait, I HAVE done this before." HAHAHAH!!!

So she drunkenly and emotionally tells Brad that her unfaithful Dad left her and her Mom, she tracked down the woman he re-married and found out that he had passed away.

SAD DAD STORY count: 2
Alli has some super-un-notable one-on-one time with Brad which summarily gets interrupted by the creeper, Michelle, who is friends with none of the girls and is a straight up crazy person.In the end, the rose on this date goes to Shawntel, the funeral director. Yeah!Back in the mansh, the recipient of the second one-on-one date is revealed: Emily. Madison really wanted it, since she has really not shown Brad much of herself... and now she won't be getting a date with him at all this week.Jackie smugly tells us that she thinks having a kid is something Emily should reveal to Brad stat. And then we see Emily lay her whole story out for the other ladies. Ok, so you know how there's always someone who is like "I didn't come here to make friends." WELL, I think that actually if I went on this show, that would be the one thing that you SHOULD try to do. There's not much chance of finding any sort of lasting love in this platform... but you could make some good friends, lounging around in that mansion, sipping cocktails by the pool, lounging in the den, viewing the sunset.... and all without any access to the outside world. In fact, if you DIDN'T try to make friends, I think you would go straight up insane... and I think we have seen that happen over and over. The girls who are on the outs with the other girls usually end up getting sent home.Wine night!!!!!!!!

So Emily tells her sad story. I do get why she doesn't want to lay out all her baggage too soon. And she does seem very sweet and polite and Southern and.... boring. Sorry!!! I had to say it. She is super cute, sweet, pretty, petite and everything. But I haven't really heard her say anything especially interesting or funny. Sorry, y'all. But I call it like I see it.Brad shows up to get Emily and she emerges wearing a less-than-cute outfit. Really?? I dunno... the whole jumper thing isn't really doing it for me. Am I the only one? Meghan's description of Emily was pretty funny --- she is a teeny Barbie doll with the soul of Mother Theresa. Hahah, yeah I get that. Barbie doll, Mother Theresa (but still boring, sorry).
So he starts the date off by driving her to a private plane in which they will be flying. HAHAHAHAAA!!!! OMG!!!! Are you serious?????? Producers, come on, you guys!!! Have some heart!!! This is BRUTAL!!!!!!! Poor Emily. Poor Brad. She tells us how planes make her nervous because they remind her of when her fiance, Ricky, died in a plane crash and she found out later that week that she was pregnant with his baby. O, the humanity!!!!!!!So they fly up to wine country and have some wine by the fire as the wind blows through her hair. Holy S, this was awkward!!!! I literally felt like I was watching an episode of Punk'd. I know she has a dead baby-daddy. You know she has a dead baby-daddy. The producers know she has a dead baby-daddy. Everyone in the world besides Brad knows she has a dead baby-daddy. Brad knows SOMETHING is off, but really can't figure out exactly what. He henceforth keeps asking inappropriate questions: "What is your longest relationship?" "How come it didn't work out?" "What is your perfect date?" "What is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you?" OMG! Soooo awkward! My palms were sweating and my heart was palpitating because I felt so uncomfortable watching this scene!!Finally God takes mercy upon us. Inside the barn, a lovely dinner is set up for them. Emily takes a sip of liquid courage and gets up the guts to tell Brad about how her fiance died in a plane crash when she was 18 and she found out later that week she was pregnant.Once again, Brad feels like a jackass. This time for taking the girl whose fiance died in a plane crash on a private jet. Now that the cat is out of the bag, Emily feels way more relaxed and can be herself. Well, naturally. As far as the energy/connection/chemistry between them? Eh... who knows. Nothing really noteworthy that I can see. Obviously he gave her a rose.
Meanwhile back at the mansion!

Madison gets emotional as Emily's story sinks in.At this point, it's not really clear why she is freaking out. But she mentions that she came here in a light-hearted way and she is now seeing that some of the girls here are dealing with way deeper emotions.

Meanwhile, in BRAD's bachelor mansion... we are reminded that he has changed. Wow. I've been watching this episode for an entire hour and this is the first time I've been reminded that he is a changed man. I almost forgot!!
And to hammer the point home that he used to be a scoundrel, but is now reformed and proactively trying to maintain his virtue, we are treated to a therapy session!!!
This British therapist talks more than he listens and makes the point that Brad needs to make these women comfortable so that he can see the amazing qualities they have to offer.It's like when you want to pet a cat who's hiding under the couch. You have to slowly lure her out without seeming too over-eager or making her feel threatened.All right, finally it's time for the final cocktail party.A couple people have some uninteresting one on one time. Alli's Dad was unfaithful and he came to her one day and said "Hey Alli, you have a little sister that you don't know about."

SAD DAD STORY count: 3Cue the thunder and lightning. Ha. ha. ha. ha.

He talks to Chantal and apologizes for... something??? Not entirely clear. I do see that he has "chemistry" with her. He wasn't put off by her drunken rambling the other day. During her one-on-one time, psycho Michelle creeps up to steal Brad away.She tells Brad that they are now having their first "fight." She is mad that he's kissing other girls. That woman is insane. I feel sorry for her kid. And kind of for Brad... what exactly is wrong with him??? Why does he think this is a girl he should not send home?????Oh well, I guess we'll get to see more of her... at least she's good for stirring up drama and scandal in the house. Also, she is the one who you hate and want to go home with all due haste, but just keeps sticking around. The only consolation you can take is that the longer she stays, the more it will hurt when she does get the boot.Anyway... eventually Madison has some one on one time with Brad. She tells Brad that she really hasn't opened up to him, as some of the other women here in the house have.She even respectfully takes out her fangs, saying that she owes it to him to be her real self, with no playing around. It's easy to reveal her fun self, but not so easy to show her deeper colors. She is even considering going home...Also, has she had knee surgery? Is that a scar I see?

And I love how Brad then tries to spin and justify it by saying "Madison can't stop worrying about my relationship with Emily." Uhmmm yeah.... I don't think that was quite it, Brad. She's not really worried about Emily coming between you and her... she's more worried about herself coming between you and Emily (or some other girl who really likes you).

Ashley H has some one on one time, where she displays her neurotic and insecure true colors.Yeah, I can see how she's going to turn into a drama queen, as they showed in the previews for next week. All I can say is that she did well acting cool for awhile... she really hung in there.

Anyway, time for the rose ceremony.God, I dislike Jackie.

Madi bows out mid-rose ceremony. I think it was nice of her to do so. It seems like she really just wasn't especially vested in him and she saw that other girls were. So she decided to just be honest and walk away. Brad just could NOT understand. So of course, he had to preserve his ego and spin it that she just has walls up and is afraid of letting love in. Also, I think it really made him look bad in front of the other girls at the rose ceremony. Hahahaha!!! Embarrassing! It was dramatic, I guess. Maybe he should have taken her out on a date if he really wanted to get to know her so well.These are the final results. Reminder: you can click on the chart to see a bigger size of it!!HAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAAAA!!!! OMG... Kimberly had the BEST exit interview ever!!! "Fuk Brad!" HAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!! That is hilarious... and we are a bit far along for such a stoic exit. Kudos to Kim!! That is right!!! We Charlotte girls don't have time for tall dorks who aren't into us!! We never cry over a man, we just scream "next!" Right??!!! Right! That is the Take Home Message. Seriously... F Brad or any other guy that isn't interested. I loved how she was like "I could be dating another guy TOMORROW" and flung her hair over her shoulder. That was really funny.

She definitely came off better than this chick:
Honestly, they need to start cutting more girls. At this point, he is still sending home women I don't even recognize. I am like "Who the hell was that???" It's really not interesting until he starts sending home people we actually KNOW.Yours in the Single Life,
Julie Julie


PS - Why in the HELL is this a movie???So, disclaimer - I have NOT seen this movie, nor do I intend to. The ads offend me enough on their own. I know this is not Bachelor-related, but it's been keeping me up at night, so I really need to get it off my chest.The premise: can two hot friends use each other for sex.... with no strings attached!!???!!!

WOW! What a lofty ambition!!! Meaningless sex!!! That IS a novel idea!! Do you know who else has meaningless sex with no strings attached?? Rabbits. Dogs. Wild boars. Stray cats. Gay penguins. (Well actually the penguins were in committed, monogamous relationships....) Are we supposed to be impressed? Yes, it really takes a lot of talent and higher intelligence to fornicate!

And let me guess how the movie's going to go: they fall in love. AWWWW, how sweet!!! NOT!

Furthermore, the ads make it look like he's the one who gets attached to her and she just screams in the fountains "Can't we just have sex??" embarrassing all the innocent passers-by... and all the children who are unfortunate enough to be watching TV with their parents when the ad airs.

Ha!!! Yeah, THAT is how the world works, for sure!!! Men get attached and women just want to get laid. Women who want relationships are just CRAZY, old-fashioned and clingy!This movie will set them straight --- what we REALLY should be doing is just going around sleeping with any and all men we are interested in... and THAT will no doubt lead to us finding committed, monogamous, loving relationships!!!Correct me if I'm wrong... but isn't forming said relationships more difficult than just getting laid??????

It is precisely this kind of bullsh!t romantic comedy that is the harbinger of the end of Western civilization as we know it.And while we're on the topic of BS romantic comedies, I have one other grievance I would like to air. Have you seen "He's Just Not That Into You??"Well, in the VERY beginning, the first scene, they show a little girl on the playground with a little boy who is pulling her hair and teasing her. She runs over to her Mommy, crying and her Mommy tells her "Oh honey, he's just doing that because he LIKES you."Then in comes the voice over telling us: since we were little, we have been taught that when men treat us badly, it means they like us. This is why we are so messed up re: relationship!

ERRONEOUS ON ALL COUNTS!!!!!!!!!I would like to correct that statement right here and now. Our mothers did not lead us astray by telling us the little boy pulling our pigtails liked us. What has led us astray is this type of BS ROMANTIC COMEDY!!!!!Here is a headline: the little boy on the playground pulling your pig-tails DID like you!! Who DOESN'T like you is the man who NEVER CALLS or pay ANY attention to you.

So we (Hollywood) need to stop manufacturing this kind of crap that sends the FALSE message to women that they should just succumb to their base urges any time they please and expect NOT to get hurt in doing so. For the love of God!!!! It just makes me so mad!!

I am so worked up and furious, just writing all this out and thinking about it that think I will go call my hot male friend and see if he'll take a roll in the hay with me to blow off some steam.

Uhmmm, so yeah. If anyone goes to see this drivel and I'm totally off base, then please let me know!!!Uhmm... yeah and this image is just another reminder why we all need Tivo!

PPS - Is it just me, or does Brad sound like Dr. Phil?
