A Little Slutty...
Emily kissed not one but TWO guys before the rose ceremony on Monday night's episode. I don't recall a Bachelor kissing ANY girls this early in the season during the rose ceremony, let alone in front of the other girls. She should keep her makeout sessions to her dates - what's her daughter going to think? What's her future husband going to think when they watch this season together?
Let Her Have Fun
She likes Ari, she likes Sean, they made her feel better about the jerk who called being with a single mother a "compromise" and she went for it (besides, that Ryan guy who saw the Ari kiss really showed his jerk like colors last night anyhow). If a Bachelor did it, I really don't think anyone would even say anything. She's just having fun and who doesn't enjoy making out with hot guys?
I think getting plastic surgery will give me confidence to do things I can't right now. I feel limited by my looks.
I like Michelle the way she is. Beauty is a state of mind. Who cares what other people think of you. Confidence comes from within.
I've been wanting to buy a car for awhile but have waivered. Now that my daughter is pregnant, I think buying a car is just a very logical thing to do to make everyone's life easier. I can use the car to do shopping, go to the doctor, meet other kids and just to do whatever she needs for her growing family. But my daughter said I shouldn't buy a car, because we need to move the car 4 times a week since we don't have a garage. She also prefers calling a car service. What a waste of money!
Cars Are a Hassle!
My parents used to own a car when I was younger - it was SUCH a pain to obey the parallel parking rules in NYC. I am a fan of the subway (and cabs when it's a weird hour or I have a lot of stuff) and am totally fine taking the train with a baby. Overall, the cost of all the subways/cars I take over two or three years would not even come close to the cost of leasing a car during those years. Let's just stick to what we know best - the SUBWAY! PS - I can't even drive!
Euro Men = Romantic
European men know the most romantic cafés, bistros and candlelit places where you can be alone and drink the most fantastic wine. The whole time, they're looking deep into your eyes, like you're the only woman on the planet. After a moonlit stroll along the waterfront and a kiss in the doorway of their artist's loft, you find yourself unable to - well, I'll leave the rest to your imagination. I'll never forget my magical semester abroad. One thing's for sure, I'm ruined for American men forever.
US Women = Easy
American girls think candlelight dinner at a cheap hole-in-the-wall means "romance," not "deteriorating public utilities,". After we eat, I walk them past one of Rome's 2,000-year-old open cesspools. Then, I take them to my shitty efficiency and make sure they see the strategically positioned artist's easel I bought at some church sale. Like clockwork, they fall backwards on my bed - Birkenstocks in the air. They're hardly Italian women, but why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?
I think Emily is really sweet. Sure, she probably should not talk about wanting a "minivan full of babies" so early in the season, expand her vocab past "awesome" and "great" and develop some hobbies...but she's really a sweet girl (and pretty!). Plus, she apparently got a huge inheritance or something. Not all women need to be ambitious and career-driven! She'll make a great trophy wife for one of these guys!
Emily is gorgeous, nice and...totally boring. I don't think all women need to be career-driven but it is a little sad to see a woman on modern TV just so focused on babies, marriage, guys and looking pretty. Has there been a convo about their families, schools, vacations, friendships, religion, anything else? Most guys these days need a little more than good looks and a stay-at-home desire to keep them interested over time.
Have Had Enough
We have loud neighbors - loud as in we hear them having sex at 4am almost everyday and listen to their loud music every weekend late into the night. I'm sure they know we can hear them (our super said the people on the other side and the people who lived in our apartment before us complained) but they just don't care. So, at 8am on some days, I like to scream really loudly, pretend I'm watching a game, make sex noises or just call for my wife repeatedly...payback's a bitch.
Still Our Neighbors
I wake up almost every night/early morning to the girl having an intense, loud, porno-like orgasm. I, too, hate listening to their thumping music until 3 or 4am on weekend nights. However, they are our neighbors and it's embarrassing that they can hear my husband just screaming like a madman in the early morning. Ever since he started doing it, our neighbors don't say hi to us anymore (they avoid eye contact on the elevators). It's awful. I just want to be peaceful and just let it be...
Need More Sleep
My roommate's annoying "Good Morning!" song alarm goes off everyday at 7am and, more than 50% of the time, she hits snooze until 8am. It's torture listening to that perky song 5 times a day through our thin walls. I think she needs to change that silly song and learn to set her alarm for when she absolutely "needs" to wake up instead of when she'd "like" to wake up. I want her to be healthy and whatever but she should schedule her workouts better.
I am doing the Self Magazine challenge and trying to drop ten pounds in 5 weeks. I am really really trying to wake up at 7am to get a 30-45 minute work out in before work. It's just really hard to wake up sometimes so I postpone my work out to the afternoon. I just wish my roommate could be more supportive. And my song "Good Morning" is the only one that actually gets me out of bed!
