Mr. Bachelor

Ok, ladies what do you think? I'm still watching but BIG RED FLAG right away...

"I want to be the PERFECT HUSBAND."

OMG!!! Ok, I've never been married but even I know there is no such thing! Why would he want to be that? I mean that is an incredible amount of pressure and if he picks a woman who really wants will be a problem in the first five minutes. I would not want a guy like that. He wouldn't feel free to be silly & make mistakes. Life is full of problems & you won't always make the perfect decisions even perfect for the time. He'd be walking on eggshells all the time trying so hard to be perfect & not make mistakes. I would not want some guy thinking I will be the PERFECT WIFE! Ugh!

Ok, so maybe he is meaning "the perfect one" for someone...but again, it isn't like you will agree on every single...blech! If you did life would be boring. I mean conversations would be "Do you like this..yep....You want to do this...yep..." UGH! Now I just went over the Love Chapter with my Social Psych students & similarity is really what most desire but up to a point. Differences make it fun too. They make you each think & grow into an even better person.

Alright enough of that...lets get to the real stuff...these women...what do you think about them? GEEZ! You wonder were they picked some of them & if they did that just to make the show more interesting. Is that fair to the bachelor to do that when he could have had a few more nicer women to pick from. I mean it shouldn't be that hard to find some more.

First, the drunk thing...what the heck?

Second, did you see all the expressions when he was choosing? Man if you are going to be like that & such a sore loser you shouldn't be picked!

Third, what is with the crocodile tears...geez you just met the guy for a few hours & he is your soulmate? Good God! There is a divorce waiting to happen! You don't know anything about him other than ya he is definitely a poster hunk & has quite a bit of money...what guy would want a women just picking him on that? Man!

Fourth, ok fake body parts...I'd think eventually he is going to find out! what do you think on the bikini woman? I mean true that is a way to stand out but is that good or not...I think it could have been ok except when she wanted him to take his pants off...bit too early & in front of others? Hmmm? Creative but...we'll have to see with her later. I thought he was going to give her the rose at first. I do like the one, so far, he gave the first impression rose to.

Ok, so lets see how things go...let me know what you does look like it will be interesting. I haven't really followed any of these in the future but I might with this one. Might even have my social psych students watch & compare to the research in the class. Like I don't think ??? there were any women older than him? What about education level...he didn't go to college etc. I'll have to have my students do a bit of research on this.

Where is this Guy???

My bro sent me this today & I love it! I hate to admit it but I'd be right there with him doing this fun! HA! Ok, a few are near the edge you have to remember my dad is the one who was in Sam's Club one day & watched a boy get yelled at by his mom for touching the singing Frosty the Snowmen and so he went & pressed every single one the them. He made the boy smile & God knows what the mother though! YAAAA Dad! :-) You gotta have fun in life, if you can't be silly & have fun you will be very sad.


This is why women should not take men shopping against their will.

After Mr. and Mrs. Fenton retired, Mrs. Fenton insisted her husband accompany her on her trips to Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, Mr. Fenton was
like most men-- he found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunately, Mrs. Fenton was like most women-- she loved to browse

One day Mrs. Fenton received the following letter from her local Wal-Mart.

Dear Mrs. Fenton,

Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and may be
forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against Mr. Fenton are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's carts when they weren't looking.

2 . July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in House Wares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's rest-room.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, Code 3 in House Wares. Get on it right away."

5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&M's on layaway.

6. September 14: Moved a "CAUTION - WET FLOOR" sign to a carpeted area.

7. September 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told other shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department.

8. September 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"

9. October 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

10. November 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

11. December 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the " Mission Impossible" theme.

12. December 6: In the auto department, he practiced his "Madonna look" by using different sizes of funnels.

13. December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled "PICK ME! PICK ME!"

14. December 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed "OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!"

And last, but not least .

15. December 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, "Hey! There's no toilet paper in here!"

What a Week...

Hi Everyone!

Well I've certainly had a week! Well the friday before Labor Day I had a student have a major seizure in my class. First time I've every had an emergency in 17 yrs of teaching. It wasn't until I was on the train & about half way downtown when I started to relax. The weekend was nice, I got to see my little niece on Monday at a fair we go to every year. I bought her a tie dye dress for her American Girl Doll with a mathching shirt & head scarf for her.  Her Uncle & I should her many of the artist's work and explained to her how they make it.
Unfortunately, I didn't have my sun glasses with me & I always get migraines from squinting...sure enough major one! I was bargaining with God in the wee hours of the night. To make matters worse, earlier in the week I went to order my migraine pills & Walgreens said they were on long term back order. Ugh! No other manufacturer makes these type of migraine meds which makes no sense to me. There are other types that work differently but obviously these are the types I need if they work. I've used them for so long now. Now I don't have migraine that often mind you. This past prescription I filled in Dec for 25 pills & you take up to 5 in a day so...I called around & they had some at a location near the fair. I go there, with the migraine remember, and they closed early for the holiday, nope not a 24 hr one. UGH! I had one left so I took that one but you are suppose to take 2 right away so...About 4:30am I started to feel better. I took a Vicodin and it did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! These usually just knock me out but it didn't even make me yawn! I had only taken 1 so far for my back since April so I had a lot left.

Tues my head still bothered me & I thought with lack of sleep & running around for work & going downtown for the back treatments it would just get worse, so I called in sick & had someone show the video I was going to show & then canceled my back treatment and relaxed all day. Wed I was fine but felt so odd. Bad enough a Monday off throws you off a bit, I had 2 days. Thurs evening when I returned from my back treatment my right knee started to hurt so much when I completely straigtened it. Felt like it was going to come out the other way! I think it is from the ramps & stairs with the train stations. When I mentioned it Fri to them they told me to always keep my knees bent. I'm trying & it isn't bothering me as much but did a bit today still.

Yesterday I went to the office for about 4 hours to catch up a bit & clean up from the summer...old student work etc. Then I met the boyfriend for dinner and did a bit of shopping. He helped with the heavy stuff! ;-)

Today I worked inside and on the computer & later in the evening did a few errands...including getting the light I have pictured above, except in black, from Menards. It is really cool. It is more natural. Too bad it won't give me a safe tan though too! HA! I got Clinton's new book on Giving for myself and as a birthday gift for a 17 yr old. I figured it is her future that can be changed. She loved it. She was planning on getting it. I also picked up a few copies of Jonathon Livingston Seagull. She had never read it & so I was glad I got it for her. I love that book. I am having my Social Psych students read it. I usually read them The Sneetches & The Paper Bag Princess also.

EEEEEEKKKKK! Country just found a HUGE black Cricket! How the heck did it get in here! I grabbed two bowls & captured it & let it outside. I can just imagine this thing jumping on me in the middle of the night! ARRRRRGGGHHH! That God I have my babies to hunt icky things for me! :-)

Well, I did 3 days of treatment on my back last week so that brings it to 5 total. They said between 8-12 I should start to feel better. I'm really looking forward to it. My foot is still tingling & I'm still having problems with my upper back a bit, probably getting strained from my lower not doing its job.  I am getting pretty far in my autobiography of Ann-Margret while traveling on the train. It is a fascinating book. I had to order it from Used Vendors but it came in awesome shape & I got the audio of it read by hear. It is amazing that this vivacious woman is quite shy...somehow I identify with that a bit. I just finished reading the part about her relationship with Elvis...quite fascinating. I can't find a picture of the back cover so I'll have to make a copy first. It is even better. I'm almost 1/2 way down so I'll say in a few more days I'd be done. Well...have to get some beauty sleep...I can use all the help I can get! HA!
