Things I wonder

Like will it ever stop raining here in New York? Seriously, the weather has been sucking big time the past few weeks. I don't think I've ever seen so much rain. I swear I saw someone building an ark in their backyard. Plus its cold and windy, it feels more like late March than late May. I want some sun, and some heat and I want it know.

The other thing I wonder is why they keep messing with things at Whole Foods? I mean, I understand the whole paper bag with handles thing. But the quality of the products they've been selling has gone down considerably since the first Whole Foods opened in New York about 8 years ago. I can't even find my veggie Canadian bacon anymore and its pissing me off.

Also why is The Bachelorette so much more fun than The Bachelor? Maybe its because watching 25 guys act like complete idiots is less degrading than watching 25 women act like idiots. Come on, we expect guys to act like jerks, nitwits and idiots when they are trying to get our attention. We can all recite the cheesiest pick-up lines that we've ever heard. I'm a little peeved with Reality Steve for picking on DeAnna for being The Bachelorette. Apparently he doesn't think that six months is enough time for DeAnna to wear sackcloth and ashes for Brad Womack. She should have entered a convent after he dumped her on national television. Instead, the fact that DeAnna has decided to pick herself up and try again means that her feelings for Brad couldn't possibly have been real.

Steve, I've had friends who were almost suicidal after breaking up with a boyfriend, and then the next week they were dating someone else. I think that DeAnna was clearly baffled and hurt by Brad, but she decidd to stop letting it define her, but you could tell by some of her remarks last night that she was still a little bruised.

As for the guys, I already have a few favorites. Fred from Chicago seeemed really sweet but he might turn out to be another Chad from Meredith's season. Jason, the single Dad, I can't imagine DeAnna entering into a ready made family, but who knows, and Robert the chef, did a good job impressing DeAnna by making a crab cocktail (clever of the producers to have crab conveniently located in the kitchen since you know Robert didn't exactly bring it with him). But my favorite is Richard, the science nerd teacher from Binghampton. He's cute, he's sweet, he's funny and he might turn out to be DeAnna's Ryan. The virgin born again? He won't make it. Remember Lannie from Meredith's season.

I have to say I'm impressed by DeAnna's taking the process seriously, and also that she doesn't want to lead anyone on. I think it might be a good season.

Hey Elizabeth, DeAnna was The topic of the day. Check out my blog and Mel's blog too. We are all hooked on her. It was a fun show. Great for a Monday night. Clearly we all go for science nerds too!

I just think she got a really good group of guys and I can see her finding a husband in this show, or at least a long term relationship.
