Game is almost on

So there I was, mentally preparing myself for the big surgery tomorrow when my phone starts blowing up.


Thanks to everyone who sent me a message.  Truly…I need to hire you all to be my personal assistant.

Or, we can all quit our jobs and become a homemaker like Valisha here.


Seriously.  A homemaker?  Does she bake biscuits, sugar cookies and scrambled eggs for other families all day long?  Does she make dresses out of old pillow cases to give to all the little girls in her life?  Because that’s what I did when I took home economics in high school.  Perhaps she knits?  Or teaches clueless people how to run a household?

Let’s face it…whatever the case may be, I foresee that major going up the rank in colleges across the nation.

And then there’s Christina.Christina.25.Restaurant

She’s a restaurant manager.  But she’s 25.  I’m going to go with manager of her parents’ fish fry establishment in Beaumont, Texas or manager of a Marble Slab Creamery.  She looks like she would be better suited for a guest host gig on Entertainment Tonight.

Meet Elizabeth.Elizabeth.29.Nanny

She’s a 29-year-old Nanny.

I can hear our Bachelor now:  “I never had a nanny or a babysitter that looked like THAT when I was growing up!”

Hardy, har, har.

Twenty bucks it’s her sister’s kids she keeps.

How about Gia the swimsuit model?Gia.Swimsuit.26

Lord please, PLEASE let her get out of the limo in a swimsuit.

And finally…the token female pilot Sheila.


Who cares if she is only 25.  I’ve had high school kids fly me over mountains when trying to get to Dickinson from Williston, North Dakota.  It’s not rocket science people.

But I would LOVE for Jake and Sheila to have to race planes across the country.  Half of the girls are with him.  The other half are with her.  Whoever reaches LA first gets a tiny bag of peanuts and a small clear cup of Diet Coke.


Okay everyone.  Log on to and take a look for yourself.  Did I miss anyone with loads of potential?

January 4 is coming fast!  We must be prepared!

Crap. Just when I am convinced that I am over watching this show, they present me with the train wreck potential, and I am intrigued. Besides, the recycled Bachelor/Bachelorette scenario guarantees that the star will go from Beloved to Loathed. That’s always a charming viewing experience.

And no mention of Caitlyn – the “spokesmodel”? Also, am I the only person who thinks that the profession of “Account Manager” is overrepresented on this show?! Plus, no mention of “Air National Guard Elizabeth” – more airplane love, I’m sure.

Who is the “crazy girl” this season? She was not jumping out at me…like they have done in the past. Any guesses?

Who comes up with the names of these professions…”Homemaker” when you have no husband or kids is called “Unemployed” in most areas of the country. Why is there always a swimsuit model and how come you never come across someone in that profession in real life? I haven’t checked out the list yet, but I’m hoping for the token “event planner”. If I was on there, I’m pretty sure I’d say I was a professional gift wrapper…just to be different. As usual…can’t wait for the mess!

Crazy emotional: Ashleigh

Crazy: Ella, Emily, Kathryn or Tiana

Seems to be a lot of model/spokesmodel/fit model-type. I’m sure they’re looking for love and not just exposure on tv, though…

If only it was Reid……

Jen from Tucson and Lindsey:
This is what a poster said on about Valishia:
“she is a career oriented woman who was happily married until her executive husband started messing with around with little floosies from the industry he was a part of. Even then she tried to make the relationship work… She was a faithful wife who worked full-time until they had little ones, and they decided as a couple to have her stay home so that the kids wouldn’t have to grow up in day care. Everyone who knows Valishia knows that she is a ray of sunshine, and would sacrifice anything for anyone. This woman has served over seas for a variety of humanitarian aid organizations, and helped feed and cloth the poor. I have never known someone to love and care as much as this woman.” Eek! now I feel bad that I laughed at your comments…

Good luck with your surgery and recovery!

Hmmm…those comments on ABC about Valisha make her sound just like whats-her-name from Melba Toast’s season…no? (Can’t remembert her name – you know – the “perfect” Stepford mother/widow)…

Praying for you today, Lindsay! Hope the surgery goes well and you have a quick recovery!

December 18, 2009 9:21 am

Duh- Lincee! Sorry – Lindsay was supposed to be Son #1’s name!
