Since we last spoke…

Where do I begin friends? It’s been eight months since we were last together and so much has happened. It’s been eight months of discovery and re-discovery for me.

For example:

Discovery: Channing Tatum is hot
Rediscovery: Johnny Depp is sexy
Do not argue with me. I am an expert in hotness.

Along the same vein, I had already discovered Grey’s Anatomy and it continues to be my new favorite show.

New Discovery:
One word: McSteamy.
No wait…four words: McSteamy in a towel.
Wait…seven words: McSteamy in a towel surrounded by steam.

Classic. Classic writing from Shonda Rhymes. Can I get an AMEN please?!

I discovered that America does not know how to vote for dancing shows because Allison and Travis were not in the final two and Jerry Springer did not get kicked off in the second round.

But sometimes, one finds themselves discovering certain things on a deeper level. And for that…their life will never be the same.

Let me explain.

July 2006. I was introduced to the World Cup by my work colleague Carolina. I had never experienced a World Cup in my life. It was extremely foreign to me that my dear Colombian-born friend would post the scores on her office door, updating for an ENTIRE MONTH. I would hear her whoop and holler for her teams (she had several) declaring “Sí se puede!” (YES IT CAN BE DONE) with each passing game.

One day, we decided to eat lunch in our conference room and Carolina flipped on Telemundo to watch the game. England was playing. Which means, of course, David Beckham was playing. Yes I had heard of David Beckham and even seen “Bend It Like Beckham” before. But for some odd reason, I had never realized the beauty that is David Beckham.

Sí se puede indeed.

Carolina was kind enough to introduce me to her “football” world including Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Italy’s Alessandro Del Piero. But I think life changed when I discovered the wonder that is Freddie Ljungberg of Sweden. If you don’t believe me…ask Calvin Klein. He’s their new model.

Tonight is a new discovery for us all. We will meet The Roman Bachelor for the first time. Will we be able to stomach the high-pitched screams when he enters a room? Will we be able to not hide our faces in embarrassment when half of the girls get sloshed at the meet-n-greet welcome party? Will we be able to sit through one hour of Bachelor days of yore before getting to the core of our new Roman adventure?

Sí se puede my friends…sí se puede.

Lincee-OMG TEAM HOUSTON and TEAM RICHMOND are straight from the SPCA, the only one more hideous is CHIN!! On top of the “can’t pull my eyes off the train wreck” viewing that the Bachelor guarantees, I feel this season is on a whole new level with the incorporation of PRINCE at every other word!!! I think I lost my voice I was screaming at the tv so much! Go hot Italian chicks,Virgin and Oregon, b/c who’s really from there? 🙂 Love ya, been a fan since the Bob days!!

So glad you are back….here’s to Tuesdays being better days of the week! You must have been one of the other people that went to see Step Up this summer besides me! Let’s keep Tatum on the DL so no one else finds out about him! Love him!

Oh, my gosh! I am so embarrassed to be from Houston. I mean did Camp Houston really say “I flew coach to meet you and that is something I’ve never done before so you should feel honored” WOW I never cease to be amazed at the people that abc pulls out of the woodwork for this show. And who wears a tiara unless they are getting married, it’s their birthday or they are a REAL princess. Lincee, I am so glad you are back. Your blogs are the highlight of my week, and while I didn’t think you could top the last one, this season looks to be very promising…….

Hi, I was just introduced to your site tonight. I’ve heard of you, but didn’t get to watch last season until the end anyway. I too am embarrassed to be from Houston! My husband, who by the way hates this show, allowed me to watch it and he was even yelling at the TV! maybe he’ll watch it with me this time!

I have never posted before, but I absolutely love reading your recaps…especially since I am a Texas native. While watching tonight’s episode I found myself thinking…Lincee will definitely pick up on that (ex. the ‘accidental flash of the bra’ (courteous of ABC) when first meeting “the prince,” goodness where do I even begin with that name…OR the puckering of the lips from that one girl when she was jealous…And she still managed to get a rose!!) Anyway, all that to say, I am SO excited to hear your comments on the new season. I am always laugh-out- loud, entertained.

Lincee! I discovered you last season and had to search my OLD computer to find your blog address. Some FOOL had tossed it out between seasons. Welcome back and I can HARDLY wait to read your insights. I’ve always taken it WAY too seriously. Thank GOD I don’t have to do THAT anymore!!!
