I’d like to thank everyone who commented, tweeted, messaged and called me about my previous post. I’m still processing the COUNTLESS emotions that I felt while reading and can’t thank you enough for the encouragement. I’ve been tearing up for roughly 12-hours, so I decided to research some links that will make you smile! Except for the one about animals. You’ll need a Kleenex for that one. Have a great weekend everyone! And thank you for reading. My cup runneth over!

I just noticed that this is a year old, but it’s still interesting. Pumpkin-flavored food items to get your ready for fall! Did you know that they make pumpkin Peeps? WHAAAATTT???

Look at that screen grab! Does anyone recognize it?. This was my first blog post. I remember feeling super technical and wildly vulnerable at the same time.

For those of you who don’t know, I started recapping The Bachelor on April 3, 2003 with an email to three girls. It sort of grew too big for me to handle, so my work friend Jason forced me to get a blog. Two years later, Jason convinced me to get a legitimate website with an actual URL. In August 2008, I launched iHateGreenBeans as a place to tell my story. You won’t be able to find those earlier posts. I accidentally deleted them and still cry to this day if I think about it too long.

Here we are, 12 years later and the darn thing is still kicking. Believe me when I say that no one is as surprised as I am.

I’ve been sitting here, staring at a blank page for about 30 minutes as Christy Nockels plays in the background. Words are my life. Writing comes easy for me, yet I can’t seem to figure out how to convey how much this little website has impacted me in ways that I could never imagine. Hear me when I say that it has nothing to do with the mechanics or stories. It has EVERYTHING to do with the people on the other side of the screen who take time out of their day to read what I have to say.

This thought is absolutely overwhelming to me.

‘Bachelor in Paradise’ recap: Drama club

Bachelorette Kaitlyn

I feel like someone should have issued a warning for the Bachelor in Paradise beach dwellers. No, it’s not Hurricane Carlos. You can see him coming from a mile away. It’s easy to prepare for his inevitable destruction. Just take shelter in a place where the tequila flows freely and hunker down until the worst is over.

The real danger comes in the form of a subtle threat that moves stealthily across the sand in various bikinis. She’s a fierce beauty for sure, but she’s also quiet. This is often a deadly combination. She has single-handedly created enough drama in 24-hours to last the entire season, yet somehow manipulates everyone into thinking she is the victim.

Well, everyone besides Tanner. This guy is on to you Samantha! AND SO AM I!

Samantha is wreaking havoc with every twist of a hair extension, tug of a belly ring and bat of an eyelash. She dominates so much time in this episode that I almost forgot to mention the modesty black boxes covering Tenley and Carly’s denim panty crotch shots as they pretended to do synchronized swimming routines outside of the water.

Bachelor in Paradise

I had high hopes that this episode of Bachelor in Paradise would kick-off with JJ punching Joe in the trachea, but that didn’t happen. Instead, Tenley gives a stern, “I thought I heard shouting” message that was oddly as effective as that time my dad came upstairs for the third time in my life to encourage my sister and I to stop jumping on the bed. Tenley simply raised her eyebrow and everyone shut up. It was fascinating.

Juelia is in full mope mode, but her eyelashes remain intact with each tear. Newbie Amber is learning how to maneuver through an onslaught of crabs who have invaded your room. A). You don’t scream like a banshee when you see one and B). You just squashed Ashley’s pet. Awesome.
