Recap in the Morning

I'm going to go enjoy the rest of the show. I suggest you do the same :-)

recap tomorrow.


The Bachelorette 6/15

I'm calling it:

tonight Tanner is out, like he should have been last week.

The Bachelorette 6/15

Chris Hansen has to stop. he is way to excited about her pain and tears.

i think that Jillian is just in a really emotional place overall, which is the only reason that she is this upset about Ed.

The Bachelorette 6/15

This whole saying good bye to ed thing is totally a sign of whats to come when she actually has to lose just that she cares about. thats going to get messy.

The Bachelorette 6/15

Ed tells Jillian he has become attached to her. Is she a puppy?

I think that Ed is using the job as an excuse to leave. I don't think he's into her in the end. I think that he would use any excuse to get out. I mean, Jillian is all upset and he just looks tired.

am i in a negative mood tonight?

The Bachelorette 6/15

Jillian hits the hot tub...again.

Jillian, have you not learned your lesson about these shows and hot tubs...

here we go.

Jesse's body language is way off. he's hardly looking at her and she's like all over him and he's just leaning against the wall. Maybe he's cold. Maybe he's not that into her. I'm not really buying it Jesse. Try harder, stupid.

The Bachelorette 6/15

Quote of the Night:

Jillian on her voice: it sounds like i've been drinking whiskey since i was born.


The Bachelorette 6/15

Jesse's hesitation about whether it is too soon to be in a relationship is not so good. Also the fact that he needed to be "selfish." When someone tells you that, you run, run far. I also am not sure if you can not need to be selfish in the span of 6 months. I would definitely not give him the rose. I don't think he's ready Jillian...

The Bachelorette 6/15

I'm curious about why Jillian and Jesse did not make out more on the glacier. I would think that would be an effective way to keep warm.

That is not a date I would want to go on...too cold.

The Bachelorette 6/15

Jillian's love of the snow is kind of adorable. I wonder if she has forgotten Jesse is even really there...

The Bachelorette 6/15

They have graduated from helicopters to ski planes? This girl needs to keep her feet on the ground, it will make her life so much easier.

The Bachelorette 6/15 - Is it Ed?

Ed is not having girlfriend problems. he's having work problems. hmmm.

Jillian should just send him home now. We know its not going to be home.

and i love how Jillian is shocked whenever anyone tells her she looks nice.

The Bachelorette 6/15

i hope that Jillian is questioning if the guys are just telling her what they think she wants to hear, because all of their answers are eerily similar.

OMG for a second, I thought that Reid was selling everyone out! But then I realized he was messing around. I wonder if Jillian's heart stopped for a second too.

The Bachelorette 6/15

Ok, Jillian wants Kiptyn so bad that i think its actually unfair to the other guys.

The Bachelorette 6/15 - Wes!

Tanner totally bribed Jillian! He just wanted a rose and told her something that would force her to give him a rose. That is beyond messed up!

Tanner thinks Jillian needs to watch out for Wes, which is totally right. At least she is confronting him about being in the show for the music. I really don't believe him when he says that he's here for the "right reasons." he just doesn't seem genuine...I don't understand why she is so attracted to him. I guess its the bad guy thing...


The Bachelorette 6/15

The group date: Jillian confronts Tanner and Reed and makes out with Wes. All in a day's work, huh, Jill?

I think tonight's phrase is "right reasons." Love it.

Reid doesn't see Jillian falling in love with Robby and I don't see Jillian falling in love with Reid so it all works out.

I'm loving the guys talking about Robby being a baby. I totally agree. He looks so young. Jillian wants kids, but if she chooses Robby she'll already have one... He's even younger than me. weird.

The Bachelorette 6/15

Jillian asks Michael why he really signed up for this...


He hasn't been on a date for 8 months? I'm not sure if that's a long time or not. But he's really self-depricating and cute. I'm really intrigued by him and he makes me go "aww."

So, Jillian, the rose?

Yes, Michael, the rose. he was so excited and happy! He's really cute with his little puppy crush.

The Bachelorette 6/15


Tanner? Seriously?

I'm confused...

The Bachelorette 6/15

Can Michael be serious? We shall see... I'm very curious to see if he gets the rose...

The waiter is teaching them how to "savor"? That's what she said?

The Bachelorette 6/15

I'm really wondering what this "everything" is that Jillian threw away and isn't sure if she'll get back...

The Bachelorette 6/15 -

I can't understand why Michael thinks he likes her more than the other guys. He has not even had a full conversation with her. I mean, talk about full on jealousy! He's just pissed that he hasn't gotten to chat with her.

And now he's pissed that he has to go freakin' ziplining to impress her! Jillian's all about it and Michael is like, "you're not serious!" Though he does take it like a champ and manages to make a metaphor about love in the process. Nice work!

Oh Jillian, You do not want to feel 19 for the rest of your life. You can't even drink when you're 19 and how are you going to get through this process if you can't have your white wine?

The Bachelorette 6/15 - 8:08

Whistler is really pretty, even though i'm not a snow person. And I would totally stay in that hotel.

I love that the guys are starting to get jealous of the the other guys and Jillian. Its totally normal but still, it makes this show a little bit more ridiculous.

P.S. did I not call that Michael would be on a one-on-one this evening? I'm not sure what that says about me...

The Bachelorette 6/15 - Last week on...

So everyone went to Vancouver last week and Kiptyn pulled into the lead and David made himself look like a freakin' idiot. Then Jillian sent Mike home because he was talking like a desperate puppy. Mark wasn't much better...but between the two, I guess he was the better one...

Then no one fessed up to having a girlfriend but Jillian still sent Juan and David home. Her best choice so far!

So lets find out what happens this week...

Hair: Show It, Flow It

I took my mom to see Hair for her birthday yesterday, thinking that it would probably be a little bit risque/eye-cringing seeing the show next to your mom, but honestly, not as awkward as I would have thought. I was expecting more nudity, more orgies, and way more drug use. That said, the lyrics and simulated sex made me wish I was somewhere on the other side of the theatre, but I think the show has definitely been toned down since the 60s. There was only like 10 seconds of nudity in the near-dark right at the end of the first act. My mom said that the first time she saw this show (with my grandmother, her mother-in-law ::cringe::) there were literally naked people climbing over the scenery. None of that on Broadway this time though.

I really enjoyed the show overall, though it was not at all what I was expecting. I don't really know what I was expecting since I knew very little about the show going in. At its heart, I think that the show is a story about friendship and how friends were torn apart by the draft and the Vietnam War in general. The cast did a really amazing job of showing these friendships and how deeply the hippies were able to care about each other.

I also was not expecting the depth in the character of Claude and the sadness and conflict that follows the character through the show right to the end. He is definitely the most developed character, probably intentionally, but I really felt like he was really heartbreaking and I kept waiting for him to come back to the front of the stage. Whether that is a testament to the show or the actor, I'm not sure, but either way, Nice Work, Gavin Creel.

The whole cast was really amazing and I totally respect the amount of energy they have to have to do a show like that. The "tribe" literally never leaves the stage for more than a few seconds, and when they're on stage their constantly moving and changing position or dancing and singing. It was really incredible to see them on stage and running out into the audience playing with people's hair. Really unlike anything I've seen before (p.s. if you're wondering where Lea Michelle is keeping herself this summer, I think she's in the tribe of Hair. Either that, or her twin is running around on that stage! it was creepy).

So, I did enjoy the show a lot. I think that it was also really relevant to today's time in that the youth of today are very much the opposite of the hippies. Students are not rising up to protest the way that they did in the 60s. Seeing Hair really makes me wonder what would happen if there were hippies today the way that they were in the 60s. Do we just know too much now to be that idealistic?

On a much less serious note, I'm live blogging The Bachelorette tonight. Hope you stop by.
