Bachelorette 2016 Recap: Episode 5

Bachelorette 2016 Recap: Episode 5

Hi guys.

I’m struggling again to get my blogs out on time. I’m sorry. I don’t know what the other bloggers’ secret is. It’s taking me nine hours to write a blog about a two-hour show and I’m trying to figure out how to shorten the process.

Until I can do that, I’m going to keep struggling. If I can’t figure this out, I’m going to have to stop. I just don’t have the health or energy to commit nine hours of my week to writing a blog. I enjoy the show and I enjoy communicating with those of you who are my most vocal supporters but doing this is utterly exhausting for someone who spends eight hours a day just trying to survive to the next one.

I don’t want to quit. I want to make you guys laugh and bring a smile to your faces. I can’t do much in this world because of my illness but being able to bring joy to the world, even if it’s just a little bit, makes me feel like I have some purpose.

So I’m going to keep trying. I’m using a new technique. I’m writing by talking into my phone which makes it much faster to write. But now since I’m talking I’m crying while I’m writing this.

I have 76 subscribers to my blog. I never thought in a million years that anybody would care what I had to to say about a silly reality show but now there are 76 people in the world who want to hear what I have to say. I don’t want to give that up. It may seem like a small accomplishment but it’s big to me.

I really appreciate those of you who comment on my blogs regularly. I can see the traffic to my site (no personal info, don’t worry). I know that people are reading what I write. But I don’t know what effect my writing has unless I hear back from the emptiness of cyberspace. So thank you so very much especially to Pat in Boise, Melissa B, Megan, and Jennifer and to the one reader who keeps retweeting my articles. Without you guys, I would’ve thrown in the towel a long time ago. You keep me going and make writing about the show worthwhile.

If I forgot anybody, I’m sorry. Those are just the names I could think of off the top my head. But all of you make this something that makes me feel like I matter.

OK. I’m going to try to stop crying now and rewatch the episode so I bring a smile to your faces rather than depressing the hell out of you.

Onto the recap.

Recap

We left off last time with Chad skulking around the grounds of the guys’ hotel suite, whistling and just generally acting like a psychopath, after being kicked to the curb by Jojo.  Since we never actually see Chad whistling, I assume they took a single sound clip and just laid it over the footage again and again to create the effect that Chad is some kind of serial killer. I can’t think of any reason why anyone who isn’t a dwarf and skipping to work in the jewel mines with their six brothers would possibly feel the desire to whistle that much.

the 7 dwarves going to work

Chad’s dwarf name: Douchey

To celebrate Chad’s departure, the other guys scatter Chad’s protein powder in memoriam while James T. plays his guitar. That was pretty f*cking hilarious. I wonder who came up with that idea. Maybe Wells?

Just when the boys think they’ve seen the last of Chad, he shows up on their doorstep for one last showdown.

angry-baby
This baby scares me more than Chad

As to be expected, Chad continues to deny all responsibility for his doucheyness and blame the other guys for putting him in a position where he had to contemplate kicking their asses. Jordan tries to play diplomat but Chad can’t be reasoned with. Chad says something to the effect that Jordan doesn’t have half a brain in his head and Jordan shakes Chad’s hand and tells him it’s been “interesting”.

grumpy cat

And then Evan demands to be repaid for his T-shirt that Chad ripped. Dude, let it go. Evan has been like Milton from Office Space about his damn T-shirt.

office-space-milton

Pro-tip: Evan, just be grateful Chad is gone and your face is still intact.

Alex returns home the conquering hero and is greeted by cake and fireworks. He ratted out a d-bag. It’s not like he scored the winning touchdown at the Super Bowl.

And now things are going to be boring. They killed off the villain on episode five and we have six more episodes to go. What are we going to do without an antagonist? Oh right. ABC is going to manufacture another antagonist out of thin air. Who’s it going to be?

Before we can even get to a commercial, a new enemy is born in the form of the guys who already have roses going into the next rose ceremony.

It is confirmed that the dangerously unstable Chad is going to be on Bachelor in Paradise. Of course he is. Are they going to have security guards in Mexico too or do the rejects from Ben and Jojo’s seasons not warrant an uptick in the budget?

Cocktail Party #1

Chase mistakenly suggests that there is not going to be any more negative energy during the cocktail party. He obviously hasn’t watched the show before.

Robby takes Jojo outside and plants a kiss on her in plain sight of all the other guys. Evan says that now all the other guys are looking around trying to figure out where they’re at and who’s kissed her. I’ll give you a hint Evan: Everyone.

In his last bid to get on Jojo’s radar, James F. recites a poem that he wrote for her and has been caring around in his pocket. Sadly, it is too little too late and my final four prediction is officially wrong.

my life is ruined

That poem was crap but I still liked him better than Chase, Derek, or Robby who are the only other guys I can see taking the 4th spot.

Alex interrupts James’ def poetry jam even though he already has a rose.

Luke and Jojo discuss the awesomeness of their connection and Luke tells Jojo that he’s falling for her.

Evan complains to the camera after Luke asks him if he’s going to try to get some time with Jojo before going for seconds.

Why is he complaining? Luke had the courtesy to ask which is a hell of a lot more than most contestants on this show do. Evan had the opportunity to go and spend time with Jojo and instead of just taking it, he bitched about the fact that maybe someone else would want that time if he wasn’t going to make a move.

Jesus, Evan. Where’s your manhood? I thought you sold manhood for a living. Maybe you need to dip your pen in the company ink.

That joke didn't make any sense

Jordan steals Jojo away to make out with her. Thank you Bachelorette editors for that high-quality, royalty-free soft-core porn midi you played under the footage. Cheap bastards.

Rose Ceremony #1

Jordan, Alex, and Luke all have roses.

  1. Derek
  2. Robby
  3. Chase
  4. Wells
  5. Grant
  6. Vinny – WTH? How far in advance did they plan that barbershop stunt???
  7. James T.
  8. Evan

James F., Daniel, and Chad go home. Without Chad around, there’s no reason for Daniel to stick around. He served his purpose as the villain’s sole ally in the house.

Daniel’s parting words: I had a better chance of being struck by lightning while shaving my face than her falling in love with me.

I have this feeling what he was really thinking while he was stuttering and stammering to come up with something he would be doing while being struck by lightning to make it seem even more outrageously impossible Jojo would fall in love with him was “jerking off” but shaving was the only thing he could come up with. Doesn’t that just sound more authentically Daniel?

“I had a better chance of being struck by lightning while jerking off than Jojo falling in love with me.”

But I do wonder if he would be more likely to be struck by lightning period while he was jerking off or while he wasn’t. Daniel strikes me as a perpetual masturbator.

Jojo announces that they’re going to Uruguay. Hooray.

Uruguay

A one-on-one date card is waiting for the guys when they arrive at their hotel room. (“Jordan, let’s seal the date.”)

And now that Chad is gone, everyone is questioning Jordan’s intentions. I’ve been questioning him since the beginning because it doesn’t make any sense that he’s on this show. Did Chad blind them to the fact that Jordan is a rich, good-looking, affable former NFL football player whose brother is a famous quarterback?

Now we have a firm grasp of the obvious

Am I the only one who immediately knew the card was talking about actual seals that swim in the ocean?

The guys seem to think that somehow that statement on his date card gives it more weight. Is it just me or are there a lot of morons this season? What date card has there been thus far in the history of Bachelor land that didn’t somehow allude to marriage and/or love?

While Jordan and Jojo are swimming with the seals, in one of the most obvious set ups in the franchise’s history, the guys discover a tabloid that has an article in it contributed by Jojo’s ex-boyfriend, Chad (not to be confused with Douchey, the 8th dwarf).

Why did they set up a makeshift barbershop for the guys to hang out in while Vinny cut their hair? And they just happened to lay a bunch of magazines around that happened to have an article that claimed Jojo was still in love with her ex? What barbershop has tabloid magazines hanging around? Dudes don’t read that crap.

I guess the reason they kept Vinny was for this stupid stunt. They couldn’t think of a less absurdly obvious way to get the tabloid into the hands of Jojo’s guys?

Again, I ask how stupid do ABC producers think we are? Don’t answer that.

Don't insult my intelligence

Chad the ex, claims that he and Jojo were sneaking around the entire time Ben’s season of the Bachelor was airing and that Jojo dumped him when she found out she got the Bachelorette gig.

I really can’t believe Jojo’s guys are taking a tabloid article seriously enough to wonder if Jojo is actually on the show for “the right reasons”. They’re all f*cking idiots, none of them deserve her, and she can send them all home at the next rose ceremony for all I care.

you-don't-deserve-to-live

And why is Wells so intense all of a sudden? He seems so brooding. That’s Luke’s role. Is he sleep deprived? He’s not going to get the Bachelor gig if he keeps this up.

A group date card arrives (“I can’t stand to be away from you.”)

  • Luke
  • Derek
  • Chase
  • Evan
  • James
  • Vinny
  • Grant
  • Wells
  • Alex

No one is excited when their names are called because the tools are too morose over the prospect that Jojo might be still in love with her ex-boyfriend.

On the night portion of Jordan’s date, we find out that Jojo has interacted with one of Jordan’s exes and she said that Jordan was a terrible boyfriend. I’m pretty sure Jordan mentioned that he was a sh*tty boyfriend in a previous conversation he had with Jojo so why is she bringing this up now? Didn’t it seem like the time to bring it up would’ve been when he brought it up? Or maybe that’s just too rational (or didn’t fit in as cleanly with the episode’s theme of being suspicious of people over their past relationships).

Jojo confronts Jordan about his ex-girlfriend. Jordan admits he was an ass and was very focused on his career at the time. That’s the same thing he said before. Duh. But he claims he didn’t cheat on his ex. Uh-huh.

I don't believe you

Jordan breezes through the conversation with flying colors and gets the date rose.

Next, Jordan and Jojo find a random (and by random I mean strategically placed by ABC producers) mariachi band and make out in the middle of their dance performance.

Just as Jojo is telling the camera how happy she is and how nothing can take away this feeling, a producer walks into frame and hands her the magazine with the article about her and Chad. ABC producers suck.

dont_get_too_happy

They tell her that the guys have seen it and, not that they had anything to do with it, but it needs to be addressed. It’s a tabloid article. They could just ignore it. But Chad is gone and they need more drama to keep us going another six more episodes. So stabbing the lead in the heart I guess isn’t out of the question.

After Jojo is done crying and cursing all Chads, she goes up to the boys’ suite to clear the air about the article. Luke thinks it’s pure fabrication. He should win just for having half a brain.

Jojo tearfully explains what should have been readily apparent to anyone with any sense. The guys are reassured and offer her sympathy.

The Dumbest Group Date Ever

The next day, Jordan and Robby have a spa day while the other guys go on their group date. They talk about what happened the night before and what they think is going to happen on the group date. Is there a man with an actual d*ck on this show?

On the first part of the group date, Jojo and the boys go sand-boarding. I didn’t know that was a thing. They valiantly try to avoid breaking every bone in their bodies hurling themselves down sand dunes and then they are rained out. WORST. DATE. EVER.

Jordan and Robby stop doing each others’ nails long enough to answer the door to get Robby’s date card: “Robby, love is within our reach.”

Robby says he’s in love with Jojo. He hasn’t spent any time with her. I’m officially more scared of Robby than I am of Chad.

Group Date Cocktail Party

During their one-on-one time, each guy states his belief that Jojo is there for the right reasons before ramming his tongue down her throat.

Derek is jealous and feeling insecure. Alex doesn’t like Derek.

Surprise surprise. Alex doesn’t like somebody.

But that’s not the best part. His hair is really the best part of this. I think it may actually be the best part of the whole episode.

Jojo gives the group date rose to Derek to give him reassurance and Alex mocks him for getting a pity rose. Alex, I officially can never take anything you say seriously ever again.

Next: Robby’s One-on-One, The Rose Ceremony, and more predictions

30 thoughts on “Bachelorette 2016 Recap: Episode 5

  1. Hi Emily!

    I read about 20+ different recaps of this silly show (is that good or bad?), and yours is one of my favorites. Some are posted within a few hours; others, after a few days.

    My advice to you is this: KEEP WRITING! It’s good for your psyche. Most other blogs I read don’t incorporate graphics or screen shots (this may be where you’re getting bogged down). Finding the right image can be so time-consuming, and it may not be worth it given your health status.

    What I enjoy about a great recap is humor and wit, and you have both. Your readers don’t need “bells and whistles” if you’re lacking the energy, we merely appreciate your commentary.

    • Thank you, Marla.

      The images do take up a lot of my time. I will consider cutting down on them. When I first started blogging, I was only creating the feature image at the top of the article. I just find that it makes a long article more readable if there are pictures to break up the text but I maybe don’t need to put in so many.

      Thank you very much for your feedback. I really appreciate it. 😀

  2. Hi Emily,
    I agree with Marla! Your recaps are my absolute favorite! This recap made me laugh so hard I cried. 🙂
    I’d encourage you to keep writing, but your health is always a priority, so make sure you take care of yourself first and then your readers!

    • Thank you, Megan. I’m really glad you enjoy my recaps. I hope I can keep writing them. It does help my mood to do something other than lie in bed and watch TV.

      I am trying to take care of myself. I have a laundry list of physical issues that are contributing to my lack of functioning. But I also want to connect with the world and this show seems to be a good way for me to do that.

      I may skip out on doing BIP this summer because I really don’t like it that much. Without the competition aspect, it’s just a train wreck. I like my train wrecks with something to sink my teeth into which I get to do with the Bachelor and Bachelorette because it’s almost a sport.

      Thank you so much for your feedback and support. Episode 6 recap is in the works. 🙂

  3. So sorry to hear about how challenging it is to write this blog while suffering from poor health! I can well believe it. Your recaps DO bring us joy, but I think we can all understand if it becomes too much.

    Is it just me, or is this season by far the most contrived?? I know they all are… but it just seems really obvious this time around. The fake drama with the tabloid was utterly ridiculous and I feel insulted by the producers. (Also, I didn’t think about it before, but you are totally right that they had to keep Vinny around long enough for that little stunt, as well as keep Daniel around only until they didn’t need him as the villain’s side-kick any longer.)

    By the way, I really like Wells and I have from the first. I’m pretty positive Jojo won’t pick him, but I would. (So far.) :-)

    • Hey, Melissa.

      I was talking about you when I said “Melissa B”. I don’t know why I thought your last name started with a B.

      I still haven’t decided what to do. I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my writing and it gets in the way of me being productive. I may skip out on BIP. I don’t really like that show very much. It’s really hard to sit through let alone write about.

      This season does feel very contrived. They made their villain too villainous and had to boot him from the show early because of it and now we have to endure the contrived drama which is annoying.

      I like Wells a lot too but he’s gone now. I didn’t think Jojo would pick him either but I thought he’d be in the running for the Bachelor. Coming in 7th or 8th place generally doesn’t make someone a contender for the lead. I think he was too smart for the show and got tired of it so he might have been in the running when the show started but after dealing with him, the producers probably realized he wasn’t right for the role.

      It also didn’t help that he waited so long to kiss Jojo. But you never know what will happen. Bachelor Nation may revolt over any of the six remaining guys being the lead and Wells could make a comeback.

      I don’t think I’d pick anyone else. I like Luke but he’s an introvert and I’m an introvert and that just doesn’t work for me.

      I’d be game for a Luke season though. I’d watch a Jordan season too but I think a lot of us aren’t buying his good guy act.

      Thank you for your comments and continued support. I really appreciate it! 😀

  4. I’m embarrassed to admit to how many Bachelor/Bachelorette recaps I read (I’m also embarrassed to admit that I never can remember if embarrass has two r’s and two s’s)….but yours is always one of the best! As usual, this recap was worth the wait 🙂

    And I agree with everything you said about the “sand date”. Terrible idea. Just terrible.

    • Haha. Don’t be embarrassed. I read all of the blogs that I link to at the end of my posts except for Reality Steve because he spoils the show. I read him once the season has ended.

      Two R’s, two S’s. Just remember that. The only reason I know is because I have spellcheck turned on in my browser but I get mixed up all the time.

      I’m glad you like my blog so much. I really try to make it entertaining for people.

      The sand date was very lame. It was dangerous and yet I was completely bored. I would never strap a board to my feet like that. I’m bad enough on skis. (I tried it once when I was 11. It took me 30 minutes to work up the courage to go down hill and when I finally went for it, I skied two feet and then fell and twisted my ankle. I won’t be going to the Olympics in this lifetime.)

      Thank you for your feedback! I really appreciate it. 😀

  5. I want to second all Marla’s comments. Everything she said. Up to this point I don’t believe I ever commented, but I’ve been a subscriber ever since I discovered you and I LOVE your recaps (and they are completely worth the wait!) I enjoy reading the recaps as much (or more) than the show itself. I should have let you know earlier how much I appreciate and look forward to your recaps. You should know that I always get the giggles when I read your recaps. They are truly funny, clever, and insightful. I hope you are able to continue to do them because I would be pretty sad if you had to stop. (But your health comes first, of course.) Thank you for all the effort you go through to produce such a great “product”!

    • Thank you, Michele.

      I’m glad I make the show more enjoyable for you. I’m really flattered that you I’m able to make you laugh.

      I will try to continue to do recaps. I’m going through a rough patch right now but hopefully I’ll be able to turn it around.

      Thanks for your feedback and support! 😀

  6. Ten points for you. That was hysterical. Totally loved the dwarf reference with Chad. Sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling well. I hope you feel appreciated and lots of love coming your way. I hope you can keep the posts coming but if you can’t, well then I hope you find an activity that will keep you active but not exhausted.

    • Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed the blog!

      I do feel lots of love. So many people have come out to support me this week and it really makes me feel like what I do is valuable.

      Finding activities that keep me active but not exhausted is tough but I keep trying. I wish I could make writing about the show not exhausting. It’s just time-consuming and I dread it but it makes me happy once I finally publish. If I could just make it take less time, it’d be fine.

      Thank you for your comment and support! 🙂

  7. Hi Emily. I never post comments on anything, but I want you to know that I love your blog and appreciate the time and effort you put into them. I look forward to them every week. I’m so sorry about your health issues.

    • Hi, Ellen.

      I thank you for taking time out to comment on my blog. A lot of writers don’t get paid for what they do and the only joy they get out of it is being able to entertain or educate people.

      I’m glad you enjoy my blog. I really appreciate your comment and your support. 🙂

  8. Chad’s dwarf name…! So funny:) I like Wells so much and would love to see him either with Jo Jo or as the next Bachelor! He may have to put on 20 lbs but otherwise perfect. As for your recaps, you do go above and beyond, and we slobs out in blog land are merely skating by, making NO effort at all! Just saying, “feed me”! So you do what you need to, pare it down… Only give us the jokes that occur to you, not the running play by play. We will still enjoy it so much! You are very talented and I for one would love to see you continue but in a format that doesn’t sap your strength:)
    Pat in Boise

    • Hi, Pat in Boise!

      I really appreciate your feedback. I do try to pare down what I write but it’s hard for me to figure out what’s important and what isn’t. I guess if I were more experienced I’d be able to be more concise but I’m known for being prolific. My Facebook friends get tired of it sometimes because I write essays rather than comments!

      Thank you so much for your continued support! I really appreciate it. 🙂

  9. Emily: I want you to know that I (& several others it seems) enjoy reading your recaps and appreciate the time you put into them. (And thanks for the special shout-out!) They are hilarious, especially the images you add. I also write recaps and it used to take upwards of 7 hours to write them, with the screen grabs, etc. I have gotten it down to around 4 hours, which doesn’t include the time it takes to watch the show and take notes and pictures. The past 2 weeks I have received 0 comments while other shows on the same site have received a ton. It makes me feel as though no one is reading my stuff – even though I know only a few readers will comment (I don’t know how to check the site stats to see how many are even reading my recaps). It is becoming disheartening since it does take up a lot of time each week, and I get excited after I post. Granted, this show isn’t as popular as Bachelorette but still, zero comments for 2 weeks in a row? Sad.

    This season seems extra contrived (and no, it’s not because of UnReal). I thought the barbershop was hilarious and can’t image the guys being “mad” that Jojo may have gone back to her ex or expressed an interest in getting famous. You can’t tell me that the guys are there for Jojo when they most likely didn’t know it would be her until after they accepted the gig. I love Wells and James T, though neither of them are right for Jojo (she seems like she’d eat them for b’fast). I’d love to see Wells as the next Bach but it will probably be Chase or Robby. Zzzzz

    BTW: Alex is the worst! He is the one who got a “sympathy rose” on his 2-on-1. I can’t wait to see him kicked to the curb.

    I hope you are feeling better. Enjoy tonight’s episode.

    Kindly,
    Jennifer

    • Hi, Jennifer.

      I remember you posted a link to your blog a while ago. I can’t remember what show you cover but I remember it was a show I don’t watch. You write for an online magazine, don’t you? If you aren’t in control of the site, you can’t check your stats. I’m a web developer so I built the site and run it as well as write. You’d have to move to a WordPress site to be able to see your stats.

      I can imagine that it’s hard to keep writing and not get any feedback, especially if you aren’t being paid. Send me the link again so I can check out your blog. You can post it in a comment on the next recap or email it to me. I can link to you and maybe you’ll get more traffic. Most readers don’t comment so it’s hard to know in your situation if anyone is even reading what you write. If you want to contribute a small blurb to my blog about this show, I’m open to that too. I know you like the franchise but maybe don’t want to create a whole blog about it.

      I don’t want to watch Chase or Robby either. I can’t even believe they’ve gotten as far as they have. I think Robby’s rush to drop the L-bomb will disqualify him.

      Aside from Luke and Jordan, all these guys seem like total weaklings.

      And I agree with you about Alex. He’s obnoxious.

      Thank you so much for your continued commentary and support. I really appreciate it. 🙂

  10. Thanks for all you do, Emily! I really love reading your recaps. They are hilarious and I love your use of images and .gifs. I completely understand if your health won’t allow it, but I wanted to let you know how appreciated your efforts are!

    I LOVE Wells but I’m concerned that Jojo is not feeling him. What do you think of Luke as the next Bachelor? He’s kind of where I’m leaning right now. Not that I love him (though, like you, I really enjoyed the insight on his possible sense of humor at the credits), but he’s not really involved in any drama and seems like a decently nice guy. I also agree that I think he’s just too serious for my own personal tastes, but he’s also pretty good looking. I think he might have a shot.

    • Thank you, Kate! I really appreciate the feedback.

      Well, I guess we know now how Jojo is feeling about Wells. She’s not.

      I would like to see Luke as the next Bachelor but I think Jojo is going to choose him. If she doesn’t, I’m totally down to see him as the next Bachelor.

      I don’t know how serious he is. I think he comes across that way but if you ever met me in person, you’d think I was super serious too. It’s an introvert problem. I don’t talk to anyone when I leave the house and avoid human contact at all costs. I also have a pretty severe case of resting b*tch face.

      So he could be a barrel of laughs once you get to know him. I think that one incident where he was talking about his man boobs was really telling to who he is. He came across much less brooding and made me rethink his seriousness. Maybe he’s just really laid-back.

      Thank you so much for your comments and support! 😀

  11. This was a great recap Emily! The episode itself was unbelievably contrived with the whole barbershop tabloid situation. You are so right on about those ABC producers. I also agree with your thoughts on the guys. This is not one of the better bunches of bachelors for sure. I find myself feeling bad for Jo Jo. Unless things change quickly she seems to have the most chemistry with Luke and Jordan but there’s something about Jordan that just isn’t genuine. I’m officially scared of Robby too! Oh my goodness – Alex and his hair was too much. Everytime he speaks I like him less. Wells has so many great qualities. James T is probably a great guy but I just don’t see him with Jo Jo. Loved all your picture inserts and the references to the seven dwarfs. So funny! Your reader comments are wonderful too – all interesting and insightful. I’m so sorry about your health struggles and I truly wish you the best. Hopefully you will continue to get positive feedback from your many fans and feel well enough to write when you can. Take care.

    • Hi, Julie.

      Thank you for your comments. I pretty much agree with everything you said about the show. I like James T. too but I don’t see him with Jojo and I really don’t want to see him as The Bachelor. Alex is just ridiculous and kind of mean.

      I’m glad my recaps entertain you. That’s my goal. Thank you so much for your comments and support! 😀

  12. Emily — you are my first! Well, my first Bachelor Blog ever. PLZ don’t stop! I do understand health issues interference. I have a few myself! PlZ don’t quit. It’s OK if yours take longer. While we seem to have different taste in men, i find we have a similar sense of humor! hang in there, sweetie!

    • Hi, Wen.

      You are so sweet. I really appreciate your feedback. I’m sorry to hear about your health issues. It seems to be an epidemic with women in this country.

      I’ll try very hard not to quit. I don’t want to. The process is very challenging but it makes me feel good to be able to write and to reach out to people.

      I love super smart/nerdy guys who are a little bit on the feminine/emotional side and I don’t care much about looks so you’re not the first person to think “Really?” when I say I like a guy. Their looks aren’t even something that occurs to me until they speak.

      Thank you so much for your feedback and support! 🙂

  13. I am sorry that you feel like you aren’t getting a ton of support. You really are, trust me! I read every time your post pops up in my inbox, and I enjoy every silly, GIFy second of it. I am terrible about commenting, because usually by the time I get to sit down and actually read anything on the computer, it is almost midnight. No excuse! I will do better! Please keep it up, as long as you love it, and hopefully we silent supporters will become a bit more vocal!!!

    • Hey, Jaime.

      It’s hit or miss whether I feel like I’m getting support. I haven’t lately because I publish so late that people aren’t really thinking about the episode anymore. I think I got one comment each on the last two blogs before this one.

      It’s just hard because the most important thing I get out of this is my connection to you guys and being able to entertain you. I really wanted to write about the show when I first started because I read a lot of other blogs and thought I could do it too.

      I just didn’t realize how much work it would be and how hard it would be to meet the deadline of getting the blogs out at least before the next episode. There are some days when I just don’t have the energy to get out of bed let alone write.

      But I keep on trying because I’ve been sick for 15 years and it just keeps getting harder. I have to find things to keep me going and this is one of them. I just have to weigh the time it takes versus the payoff. I can’t let myself get sicker.

      Thank you very much for taking the time to write me. I really appreciate it. 🙂

      • If it takes the place of taking care of yourself, making sure that you are okay, I completely understand. But I will say this…. You got some pretty amazing love on this post! That is a darn good thing…. I hope it made you smile, at least a little!

        • Hi, Jaime.

          Yes, I agree that I got some pretty amazing love on this post and I’m grateful for it. It really helped motivate me to keep going.

          It did make me smile and cry happy tears.

          Thanks so much for your feedback and support! 🙂
