THE OFFSHORE TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE IS OVER!  Hallelujah indeed!  My media day went well.  There was tons of publicity for my clients.  My knee didn’t boycott me and swell up until the late afternoon.  I shall officially claim this year a victory!

Several of you emailed me to say that ABC had unveiled the cast of characters that will inevitably compete for Emily’s heart.  I had every intention of writing something this weekend about the roster, but my hours were filled with early morning fishing, teaching my three-year-old niece how to swim, attending my sister’s drill team’s dance recital, driving to Austin for a dear friend’s baby shower, catching up with Some Guy in Austin and speeding around the lake with other friends in their tricked out boat.

In conclusion, I’m so popular.  With that said, I promise to give my initial first reaction thoughts to Emily’s suitors later this week.  We are SEVEN DAYS away from the new season.  Hallelujah!

Speaking of Hallelujah, on the way home from Austin, one of my back seat passengers introduced me to the following trio of friends who made this random video.  Sit back, relax and enjoy the awesomeness.

I’m Team Charlie! Looks like the Grobes dressed most of them in his neutral wardrobe.

Also, does anyone else remember Ali telling People (I think) that Emily LOVES guy with tattoos and hardly any of those new bachelors have them!

I cannot wait to hear your take on them, Lincee!!

Wow – that version of ‘Hallelujah’ is beautiful, thanks for sharing!

And I’m with Kristin – – can’t wait to hear your synopsis. 🙂

I tried to ‘make’ my friend choose her top two from just the online slideshow and she refused. Said she couldn’t even look through them a second time to narrow anything down, ha ha!
It’s gonna be a fun season . . .

(And cheap shot, ABC, with the ‘race car driver.’ Just when I think you can’t get any uglier . . . ick.)

Oh my goodness, I cannot believe you have that video up! A friend introduced it to me yesterday, and I have been obsessed with it since. We found my little one falls asleep quite easily when we sing it….or have it on in the background. So glad to see you have such impeccable taste in music 🙂 can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the new bachelors!

Beatiful video!!! I had chills the entire time listening…

Can’t wait for your take on the guys for Emily – looks to be quite a few douchenozzles from the bios!

Wow. Thanks for sharing that video. Exactly what I needed to hear today!

Merciful heavens, that video is amazing. I watched it twice. Okay, three times. Thanks a bunch for sharing, Lincee!

I have literally been counting down the days until the Bachelorette premiere…can’t believe it’s only 7 days away. Oh, and I’m less excited about actually watching the show and most excited about reading your recap 🙂 You’re just about the only thing that makes the show worth watching!

Have a lovely week, and I’m excited to get back in the swing of things with ya!

I just watched the video again. My current total stands at four now 🙂 Incredible.

after a quick look at the 25 bachelors, there are only a few even remotely interesting. Seriously? A mushroom farmer from Columbia, grain merchant from Brazil, a race car driver from the Netherlands?

I have loved that version of that song for a long time. It’s wonderful in many ways. Do you know if it is available on itunes? I sure can’t find it on spotify…which makes me really sad.

I’ve never liked this song before, but this was easily the most beautiful version I’ve heard of it. Thanks for sharing.

As JLo would say; It gave me goosies!

Oh. My. Awesomeness. The purity of their voices is amazing. Simply beautiful. Thank you for posting!

Thank you for posting that video. I’ve always loved that version. Their voices were beautiful.

I would like to go on record as saying – Sean – YUM. My early favorite based on picture alone.

I don’t know if I will be able to bring myself to watch this season. Emily has always seemed arrogantly irritating to me. A little too full of herself. But the plus side is the guys on the bachelorette always make it fun to watch. It’s fun to see who is there for love and who is there for the frat party that always ensues…

O.K. just checked out the sides of beef that Emily will have to choose from. Granted being a guy, I don’t have a keen eye on what our little prissy Bachorette and knowing most guys don’t photo well. But my goodness it looks like ABC busted out all the tools from the shed, I can’t see one of them being a good fit for a spoiled southern belle, I wonder if they picked guys that won’t mess well with her just for max. drama. Can’t wait to read Lincees’ take on this line up.
